Every Breath You Take
Buteyko developed special breathing techniques for sufferers of asthma and other conditions. Though hounded for years by the Russian medical establishment, he eventually documented 100,000 asthma cures.
Every Breath You Take, one of the few books on the "Buteyko Method", as it is known, is written by Dr Paul Ameisen, an experienced medical practitioner and natural therapist who started using the technique about seven years ago after it was introduced into Australia. He cites Australian statistics of over 8,000 "cures" as at 1997, with at least a 90% success rate, plus recent favourable clinical trials in Australia.
In his book Dr Ameisen describes the theory and methodology of the Buteyko Method, but he urges asthma sufferers to seek professional help in learning the breathing techniques correctly. He presents a number of case studies in the hope that more sufferers will seek help—especially when, in most cases, they can look forward to phasing out their prescribed drug treatments.
Dr Ameisen includes some sensible advice on health, plus Buteyko Method contacts for Australia, NZ, UK and USA.
