Level 2 course "Existence" of Buteyko Toronto Courses
Numerous chronic health problems can be completely resolved by students
who adhere to guidelines and treatment programs offered by Buteyko Toronto
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 inflammation; allergies; GI, hormonal problems, and musculo-skeletal
It takes somewhere from 1-2 weeks up to 1-2 months to achieve this level.
The main Buteyko Toronto 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.
Note that one's health can be found using the CP test and the
Buteyko Table of Health
