Buteyko Breathing is a method of breathing developed by Konstantin Buteyko, a Ukrainian physician, in the 1950s. The method is based on the idea that many people over-breathe, or breathe too much, which can lead to a variety of health problems.
The Buteyko method involves a series of breathing exercises designed to help people retrain their breathing habits and reduce the amount of air they inhale. The goal is to breathe more slowly and shallowly, which can help improve oxygen delivery to the body's tissues and organs.
Proponents of the Buteyko method claim that it can be beneficial for a variety of conditions, including asthma, allergies, anxiety, and sleep disorders. However, more research is needed to fully understand the potential benefits of this approach.
If you are interested in trying the Buteyko method, it is recommended that you work with a qualified practitioner who can guide you through the exercises and ensure that you are performing them correctly.
