Russian Breathing Technique Which May Help Asthmatics
Asthma is a frightening disease, especially when it hits children. And, if this condition is not properly managed, it is a potentially fatal disease.
The number of asthmatics in the developed world are on the rise. Conventional medicine‘s way of dealing with this ailment largely centers around the use of drug medications and inhalers (which are also drugs, taken in via another channel).
Surely there are better alternatives?
To really deal with and overcome asthma, a comprehensive and holistic lifestyle and dietary approach is often necessary. At the same time, there are also alternative healing arts, such as yoga and acupuncture, which have proven useful and helpful for dealing with asthma.
Then, there are breathing techniques. With asthma being a lung and breathing disorder, this method makes a lot of sense.
A Russian physician by the name of Dr Konstantin Buteyko has designed one such technique. It is called the Buteyko Method, and its approach, I believe, is based on shallow breathing. It’s drug-free and quite simple to use.
According to studies conducted in 2002 and 2003, the Buteyko Method can reduce asthmatics’ need for medications and bronchodilators. It does sound somewhat promising to use as a supporting tool, and probably worth a read and a try.
