SHARE: “Learning to breathe (aged 41) finally got my asthma under control”

Here’s an article posted on UK’s daily mail, about how this lady controlled her asthma through breathing training.

——————————– (Article starts)
Few of us give a second thought to how we breathe.
But if we did, we’d probably think we should be breathing deeply and getting plenty of oxygen into our system.
In fact, if you have asthma, trying to inhale too much oxygen could make it worse, say experts.
This is because it can disturb the delicate balance of CO2 — carbon dioxide — in your lungs, which is crucial to the process of transporting oxygen around the body.
Too much CO2 sets up a vicious circle of worsening symptoms, which may lead to hospitalisation.
‘Quite often, asthma patients have to work harder to breathe, but if they work too hard — drawing in too much oxygen — their CO2 goes down, breathing gets harder and their chest gets tighter,’ explains Dr John Moore-Gillon, a spokesman for the British Lung Foundation.
‘Overbreathing can, in fact, affect anyone,’ he adds.
But it’s thought to be widespread in people with existing lung conditions such as asthma.
For them, not only are the effects more obvious, but they’re riskier as they are more prone to feeling wheezy and tight in their chests in the first place.
It can also be harder to get out of the cycle of tightness once it has started.
The difficulty is spotting the problem of overbreathing (known as Breathing Pattern Disorder, or BPD).
Dr Moore-Gillon says: ‘The symptoms — whether you have asthma or not — can be quite vague: a sort of muzziness in the head or tingling in the fingers.

On Saturday (16th-Feb), Howard met with Buteyko Educator Chris Bauman from Victoria, at Dr. Edmund Liem’s dental office in Burnaby. It was the last session for a group of dentist learning Buteyko Technique to help patients with sleep apnea and snoring, as well as to reduce the chance of developing crooked teeth in children.
