The asthma cure you don't know about

February 7, 2017

 

Asthma affects millions of people worldwide. It is the leading cause of hospital admissions for children and 1 in 4 Canadian children will be diagnosed with asthma. Each year asthma rates rise about 50%. However there is new hope thanks to a treatment developed by a respiratory professor in Russia. It offers a natural and effective way to control and eliminate symptoms.

 

The usual way to treat asthma is with a variety of medications designed to relax and open airways. At best these methods are temporary measures and do not treat the underlying cause. 

 

The cost for medications and inhalers is high and the cost to our health-care system is enormous. 

 

Apart from the expense and debilitating life-style, asthmatics often live in fear of having an attack or of forgetting their inhalers when they go out. Their life is very stressful and stress is a major trigger for asthma.

 

Christine Byrne, an asthmatic herself and with multiple family members who suffered from asthma, came across a breathing technique call the Buteyko method which was reputed to reverse the effects of asthma. In 2006 when her father, who suffered with chronic, severe and frequent asthma attacks, started to practise this method, his asthma of 74 years went away. He was 81 at the time and in the hospital, but it stopped his asthma in its tracks. 

 

The Buteyko Method was discovered in 1952 by Russian doctor, Konstantin Buteyko who recognized that people with asthma over-breathe. In other words they take big gasps of air through open mouths instead of controlled, gentle breaths through their noses. They breathe a volume of air that is 4 to 5 times what they require and this upsets blood gases. This results in the body trying to normalize breathing by constricting, congesting, and limiting airflow.  By correcting the breathing pattern, asthma symptoms naturally recede, less medication is needed and the persons quality of life increases.

 

Inspired by the great results her father had, she decided to travel to Europe and train to become a Buteyko Practitioner in 2006. Since then she has successfully helped thousands of asthmatics to reverse their asthma naturally.

 

Her program consists of correcting their lifestyle, and looking at their diet, exercise and sleep habits. 'We aim to get to the root cause their condition as opposed to just keeping symptoms at bay with medications'. she said.

 

Medical studies conducted by the Gisborne hospital in 2003 and the Foothills hospital in Calgary in 2005, found asthma symptoms such as wheezing, coughing, constriction and congestion, decreased by 75% within 3 months. Reliever medication decreased by 90% and steroid medication decreased by 49%. 

  

Even if the breathing retraining done by Christine at Asthma Care Canada, only reversed asthma in half of the population,

 

 it would make a huge economic dent in health care costs and improve the lives of millions of people.
