Buteyko is a clinically-proven, natural, safe breath retraining technique for asthma. It is also effective for allergies, blocked and runny nose, sinus issues, chronic cough, sleep apnea, snoring, anxiety/panic and paradoxical vocal fold motion (PVFM). It consists of breathing exercises specially designed to restore normal breathing patterns combined with principles about physical exercise, food and sleeping as they relate to healthy breathing habits.
