Buteyko Greater Philadelphia Courses
We are happy to announce that the Buteyko breathing method is now also taught in Greater Philadelphia Area, Pennsylvania, led by Dr. Artour Rakhimov (Buteyko practitioner). There are teams of scientists there, at the Temple University School of Medicine, who also work in the area of health and respiratory care. But none of these doctors and scientists are interested in breathing normalization (or teaching people how to breathe in accordance with physiological norms).
Dr. Artour Rakhimov has been teaching the Buteyko technique to groups of people since 2003. Dr. Rakhimov graduated from the Moscow State University (with Honors). Teaching Buteyko and breathing education has been his main career since 2005. He is the author of the most complete book in English about the Buteyko breathing method, as well as 3 other books. He was trained by leading Buteyko practitioners Andrey Novozshilov, MD and Ludmila Buteyko (Buteyko Medical Clinic in Moscow, Russia).
The Buteyko Greater Philadelphia Courses are offered to those qualified students who are willing and committed to practice and excel due to the fact that breathing normalization requires self-discipline, motivation and diligence. The goal of the program is to breathe normally 24/7 and this is manifested in normal body oxygenation, which is 40 s for the body oxygen test. Such fundamental project and change is possible only by constant breath control using breathing exercises and correction of lifestyle risk factors (lack of physical exercise, sleeping on one's back, mouth breathing, poor posture, nutritional deficiencies and many others).
The main Buteyko Greater Philadelphia course which is taught in groups is Level 2 course.
Level 2 course "Existence" of Buteyko Greater Philadelphia Courses
Numerous chronic health problems can be completely resolved by students
who adhere to guidelines and treatment programs offered by Buteyko Greater Philadelphia
Courses, which can grant a money-back guarantee for up to 90% of committed students
with the following "simple or low CP diseases":
● Chronic fatigue syndrome
● Hypertension (primary)
● Angina pectoris
● Allergic rhinitis
● Hay fever
● Panic attacks/anxiety
● Sleeping problems
● Sleep apnea
The goal of this course is to achieve up to about 20-30 s morning CP test results, so that there is no need for medication and no symptoms of the main health problem. Further breathing normalization is required in order to achieve complete clinical remission, including elimination of infections; inflammation; allergies; GI, hormonal, and locomotor problems.
It takes somewhere from 1-2 weeks up to 1-2 months to achieve this level. The main Buteyko Greater Philadelphia course includes 5 group sessions (lessons), each about 2 hours long and 2 private meetings. (Most sessions are done in a small group, but each student also has individual lessons.) During the course the students learn various breathing exercises (up to 1/3 of the course), get educated in lifestyle management, and get homework. Apart from breathing exercises, the Buteyko method includes teaching of healthy lifestyle factors by the Buteyko practitioner and detailed explanation of how and why these factors influence breathing. These factors include sleep, exercise, diet, posture, thermoregulation, and other lifestyle parameters.
