Teresa Hale will show you a new way to breathe. If you suffer from asthma or other severe respiratory diseases, this book could save your life.
An astonishing number of Americans suffer from respiratory diseases and have been told that there is little they can do about them except mask the symptoms with drugs. However, these drugs often cause a very unhealthy dependency in their users and fail to really treat the condition.
Breathing Free reveals a five-day program that has revolutionized the treatment of asthma and respiratory illness internationally. Called the Breath Connection and taught at London's renowned Hale Clinic, it is based on the discovery of Professor Konstantin Buteyko and on more than forty-five years of practical and empirical research. Thus far, the Breath Connection has helped hundreds of thousands of sufferers alleviate the worst symptoms of asthma and other respiratory illnesses. At the heart of this program is the concept that some 200 diseases -- including asthma, emphysema, and bronchitis--are a result of dysfunctional breathing, or overbreathing. With black-and-white descriptive line drawings throughout the text, Breathing Free teaches a simple, natural technique that demonstrates to sufferers how they can retain their breathing patterns so as to prevent and overcome attacks, restore healthy sleep, and reduce medication by up to 60 percent. The cornerstone of the program is The Pause Control, a technique of holding the breath that restores the body's natural levels of carbon dioxide, oxygen, and pH. For those seeking improvement in their overall health, it also offers major benefits regarding stress, weight loss, and the heart.
Thisgenuinely groundbreaking book is set to revolutionize treatment for the millions of people who suffer from asthma and other respiratory illnesses and thought there was little or no hope in sight.
