At that time, this very unusual thought had flashed through my mind for no known reason. I decided to check it out straight away. At that time I had a headache, a pain in the heart and a pain in the right kidney. I started decreasing my breath, in other words, I had instantaneously invented my method of normalisation of breathing. Practically a minute later my headache disappeared, as did the pains in the heart and the kidney. I decided to re-check. Is it really so? Is there such a close connection? Am I right or am I mistaken? Right there and then, I invented the way of testing it. That is, the deep breathing test. Now what do you think happened? I developed a pain in the heart. (Voice over stops and Dr Buteyko is talking in Russian) (Voice over stops and Dr Buteyko is talking in Russian) (Voice over stops and Dr Buteyko is talking in Russian) Well, just two deep breathe-ins and the attack is starting. That’s enough. “Are you dizzy? Are there any spasms in your chest?” yes “If I listened to your chest now, I would hear wheezing.” So you see, you have made four deep breaths and the disease is now in evidence. And this is what is recommended and taught by the medicine. The whole world is being taught this. Well, I understand very clearly this is how it works Not only the hypertension, but the Stenocardia and the Ischaemic heart disease, heart attacks, strokes, Endarteritis, Reynards Disease and so on, a whole group of diseases that are the result of vascular spasms, could be caused by the deep breathing. Well, just two breathe-ins and the attack is starting. That’s enough. “Are you dizzy? Are there any spasms in your chest?” “Yes.” “If I listened to your chest now, I would hear wheezing.” So you see, you have made four deep breaths and the disease is now in evidence. And this is what is recommended and taught by the medicine. The whole world is being taught this. Well I understand very clearly this is how it works. Well now we will use my method which means the opposite. We will decrease his breath. Now he is holding his breath.
“Tell me now, how is it going? What is happening?” “The dizziness is going.” Well my method consists of five fingers. Five basic points : 1 1. The decrease
2. 2. The depth of breathing 3. By relaxation 4. By diaphragm 5. 5. Until a small deficit of air ATTENTION : One can use the Buteyko Method only under a specialist supervision. In this hall we conduct special breathing exercise, teaching the the patients the ways of controlling and the prevention of bronchial bronchial and vascular spasms.
We teach them them theoretical and practical skills of normalisation and regulation of their breathing. We examine the clinical aspects. We observe how the patients gradually reduce the intake of medications. Most of the patients come to us using large doses of broncholytic broncholytic and steroid preparations. and steroid preparations Using the Buteyko Method the patients gradually reduce and even totally remove the need to depend on these drugs. We have a very large number large number of patients, the achieved results are very positive. Not only the improvement can be observed subjectively, it is proven to be there by objective investigations. These people who practically rose from their graves are our best allies, they will fight for our method. They are They are our army. By now they are counted in their tens of thousands in the Soviet Union. So here we are now involved in a struggle of principles and ideas. effectively worthless But the truth is on our side. We achieve a 100% effective result. This was proven in Leningrad with 46 asthmatic patients in 1968 and again in 1981 in 1981 when the when the Ministry of Health of the USSR ordered another approbation approbation to be conducted at the First Medical Institute’s Paediatrics Department. This time, my student and follower, Genina, was given 52 52 children, all of them in very grave conditions. Like Alchelka here, who were so over-medicated they were half dead. The deep The deep breathing changes the pH, the acidity/alkalinity balance of the the organism. This disturbs This disturbs the metabolism and the disturbed, unbalanced metabolism turns the immune reactions into allergic ones that makes the allergies also the result of the deep breathing. Arthritis, Arthritis, obesity, malnourishment, as a result the immunity is lowered. This is This is exactly what we are observing in our times. It follows then with the lowered the lowered immunity, colds and flus are developed easily, even AIDS will attack will attack those who breathe deeply much easier. much easier The metabolic disturbances can be so immense that even even tumours and cancer will appear. So even cancer can be the result of the deep breathing.
