History of Buteyko Breathing
It is important to note that when Dr. Konstantin Buteyko first discovered the benefits of slow, relaxed breathing with less volume of air when he was diagnosed with acute hypertension as a young doctor in the Ukraine.
Like most young medical students Dr. Buteyko was under a lot of stress and pressure at work. His blood pressure was dangerously high. He was warned that unless he got it under control he would die young of a stroke or a heart attack.
One night when working on a ward Dr. Buteyko noticed that his breathing was heavy and laboured. He had observed as a doctor that as people were dying and passing away their breathing became extremely heavy and laboured.
Those sick patients whose breathing was not so heavy tended to last longer before they passed away.
Dr. Buteyko wondered if there was a connection between how he was breathing and his high blood pressure.
If extremely sick people who were dying breathed in a heavy, laboured, fast and erratic manner was it possible that people who breathe like that in their day to day lives were making themselves sick?
Dr. Buteyko began to deliberately breathe slowly and gently through his nose and the headache he was experiencing from his high blood pressure and stress subsided.
Then he breathed heavily and it returned again. Dr. Buteyko had found a natural way to balance his dangerously high blood pressure.
He taught his breathing technique to thousands of people with high blood pressure and asthma for the rest of his life.
Dr. Buteyko had re-discovered an ancient knowledge about the power of slow, deliberate, gentle breathing that had been encouraged in the Ancient traditions such as Pranayama Yoga for thousands of years.
