I would like to tell you about Buteyko breathing method that has virtually eliminated my COPD. I am 82 and was diagnosed over 7 years ago with this. I refused all inhalers and tried other methods for my copd, like inhaling peroxide which helped some but not nearly enough.
I bought a very expensive oxygen concentrator for breathing but while I was trying to figure out how to use it I started searching the internet for help. I came across this Buteyko breathing site and started using all the information I could find on there. It has been two years since I have been doing this and I have never used the oxygen machine. It is in the back of my closet and my kids will have to do something with it. I very rarely have congestion have never been hospitalized and walk a 1mile or more a day. This will eliminate asthma, constipation and a hundred other things. The Best
Buteyko Breathing Method
I have copd for about 7 years diagnosed. I have never taken any inhalers or medication for it. I only took Bill Monroe's hydrogen peroxide by spraying in throat, but things were not getting better even though Bill peroxide helped. I started experiencing high anxiety and shortness of breath, I even went so far as to buy a very expensive oxygen concentrator. I read how my co2 was the problem and causing my shortness of breath. So I went to Google and tried to find out how to reduce my co2, Boy did I get a shock when I found out that co2 is a good thing and not bad!!! What? The problem was the co2 was being trapped in the lungs and not able to get into the blood where it was needed. I was told we are all overbreathing or hyperventilating. The doctor who found all of this out and was the discover was Doctor Buteyko. If you look up Buteyko breathing and do a search you will find all the information you need. By the way, I have never used my $2,500 dollar oxygen machine. My bronchitis is gone I am walking 1 mile with very little discomfort I am sleeping better at night and anxiety is at a minimal.
For those of you who won't look this up I will give you a very simple exercise to do at least 2 time a day or whenever you think of it. The more you do the better you feel. Keep your mouth closed at all times!!! The feel of smothering with leave, sneeze through your nose and cough through your nose. You can yawn through your mouth. Take a small breath in and a small breath out and then hold for 5 SECONDS.
The best to you all, Yolanda
Buteyko Breathing Method
I have copd and a while back I talked about what I was doing for it. One was Bill Munro's hydrogen peroxide inhalation method since then I have come about a new revelation and have to share it. It is the Buteyko method of breathing.
I know there is a lot of information out there on breathing but this is definitely different. I have refused all inhalers since I was diagnosed about 5 years ago but in the last year I have gotten really bad. I started having a hard time breathing and then I started having extreme anxiety issues and after doing research I found that the build of co2 was a factor. I then tried to find out how to get rid of co2 in the body. Much to my surprise I found out from the Buteyko site that we actually had too much oxygen and it couldn't be utilized because it couldn't mingle with the co2 and enter the bloodstream! It talked about a simple breathing exercise that would actually cure asthma and help with copd. It seems like the biggest problem we have is overbreathing. My oxygen level was always around 93 then sometimes would drop to 90. I ordered a $2,300 dollar oxygen concentrator with a prescription I got from the doctor. I have never used it and that has been 3 months ago.
The biggest but not the most important thing about Buteyko breathing is just shutting your mouth all the time even when coughing and sneezing. I have sleep apnea and I take my mouth shut at night and put on my full face mask. I am now walking a good mile a day without shortness of breath and my oxygen level is alway at 94. The nice thing is it's free. All I bought was a book on Amazon I won't give you the name because I don't want you to think I'm selling books.
Look up Buteyko breathing on line there is enough free stuff to change your breathing. The Best
