The Buteyko method for asthma

Dr Louisa Draper

"There is currently only limited evidence to prove that the Buteyko method works. It is important that you consult a doctor if your symptoms change and you mustn’t reduce or change your medication without consulting your doctor."

You may have heard of a method of treating asthma symptoms called the Buteyko method or Buteyko Breathing Technique. The Buteyko Breathing Technique(BBT)  was originally developed by a Russian Professor called Konstantin Buteyko in the 1940s. Although it has never actually been proven to work, there’s some evidence to suggest that it can help people to take control of their symptoms.
