Diseases of civilization that relate to ineffective breathing

Here is a list of 150 or 200 chronic diseases or health conditions which are based, according to Buteyko doctors, on low body O2 and caused by overbreathing. For clinical evidence, see the Homepage that quotes over 50 studies related to common chronic diseases.

According to over 170 Soviet and Russian doctors, there are many other diseases that are possible only in conditions of low body O2 content due to chronic overbreathing. These health problems or diseases of civilization can be successfully addressed with breathing retraining or the Buteyko breathing method. A particular clinical picture for any specific person and condition can be different, but many symptoms can be predicted using the Buteyko Table of Health Zones.
