Dedicated to All Chronic Sinusitis and Asthma Sufferers out there...
Breathing exercises and various breathing methods have gained a lot of attention and popularity recently.
There are a lot of people who give advice to others on how to breathe, but few have received any formal training. I see a dangerous trend in their recommendations, and that is to take a deep breath.
In 1952 Dr. K. Buteyko discovered the disease of deep breathing (hyperventilation). Hyperventilation is the main cause of many modern diseases: Asthma, Sinusitis, Rhinitis, Anxiety, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Insomnia, and Snoring.
