Goal 2: Reduce Human Disease

Use Buteyko breath retraining to help patients manage and monitor their lung condition.

Buteyko Breath Retraining has been verified by the AHQR, Thorax Journal and other organizations as a legitimate technique to improve the symptoms of asthma and related respiratory illness. This simple technique could be instituted for a low cost to improve the quality of life of patients, reduce medications necessary for good control and save taxpayers and insurance companies a great deal of money.
