Ok I am reading your question years later, but for others. Yes, Butyenko therapy really helped. We are now 8 years further, and my panic attacks never came back. My breathing has improved and I haven't had any problems ever since. I still do it almost every day, sometimes for 15min. sometimes for hour and a half. Depending on how hard I need it. Nowdays I just do it to calm my nerves and muscles around the middle.
EC: Thank you so much for updating your post after so many years. Much appreciated!
I've done Buteyko Breathing and it was really good! A few ailments I'd had just disappeared within a day or two : difficulty swallowing was the big one : I was able to eat easily again: the doctors had decided to throw a pile of antibiotics at me in the hope one of them would help....nutters. I live where it's either hot or really hot most of the time and I had a noticeable increase in my energy levels and ability to cope with the heat while outdoors for extended periods of time..I stopped getting worn out.
