Dr KP Buteyko, MD, PhD Unlike yoga, meditation and any other health therapy, the major beauty of the Buteyko breathing retraining method is that, if one retrains his or her automatic breathing pattern, this always results in health improvements: less and less symptoms due to slower and easier breathing 24/7 with more oxygen in body cells. Eventually, the disease disappears. Thus, the method always works. However, the method is not easy since making permanent changes requires lifestyle changes and efforts.

You surely know about yoga, meditation, mindfulness techniques, Buddhism and many other things. The Buteyko method includes all these modalities since it provides a solid scientific explanation backed up with hundreds of clinical studies quoted on this site. The main breathing exercise of the Buteyko technique is about 5,000 years old since it can be found in the most ancient mindfulness meditation Sanskrit text. See more here: mindfulness meditation and breathing.

The Buteyko method was applied during best ever known (in the history of research and medicine) clinical trials on cancer and asthma. See links on the side menu or search this site if you want to know more about that.

The Buteyko method (also known as the Buteyko breathing technique) is a breathing retraining method that includes:
- breathing and physical exercises
- lifestyle changes.

The theory developed by Buteyko suggests that chronic diseases develop (asthma, COPD, heart disease, diabetes, cancer, and so forth) due to overbreathing (hyperventilation) that causes low body oxygen levels.

Let us consider clinical evidence related to these statements. Do people with chronic diseases have too heavy breathing at rest?
