Hello all!

I want to know if any of you have ever tried the Buteyko breathing method. Jac Vidgen regularly visits Manila - he's based in Asia, I think Thailand, and he keeps inviting me to a series of breathing lessons which he says is very good for emphysema. I'd like to know if any you have received benefits from this particular method. His website is www.buteykoasia.com.

Thank you.

I have taken the course and still use some of the calming breathing techniques that I learned. I believe that this method can be a real help to those that suffer from asthma, less for those that have severe emphysema. If you suffer from mild emphysema, then I think it would help as well.

If you have been invited at no cost to you, I would certainly at least give it a try. You don't have anything to lose as far as I am concerned as long as the teacher is good.
