Dr Konstantin Buteyko's revolutionary theory suggests that the solution to the control of asthma lies in our breathing patterns. Most of us breathe too deeply, and all asthmatics have incorrect breathing patterns. His observations suggest that a higher proportion of carbon dioxide, traditionally regarded as a waste product of breathing, is essential if the body is to properly function. Author Alexander Stalmatski, who studied under Professor Buteyko, explains the simple, natural technique which can help change the lives of asthma sufferers . . .
