More About the Author

Patrick McKeown was educated at Trinity College, Dublin, and later studied under the auspices of the founder of the Buteyko Method; the late Dr Konstantin Buteyko. From a very young age, Patrick suffered from asthma and relied on an array of medicines and inhalers until he discovered the Buteyko Method at the age of 26. By applying the principals from Dr Buteyko, Patrick experienced immediate relief from his asthmatic symptoms - a feat that over 20 years of medication had failed to accomplish. Learning to breathe through his nose and reducing his breathing volume positively changed his life in so many ways.
For the first time ever, Patrick's asthma was under control. This life-changing discovery motivated him to change his career in order to help children and adults who suffered from similar breathing problems. Following his time in Russia in 2002, Patrick has been teaching the Buteyko Method in Australia, USA and throughout Europe. He has penned eight books, including three best sellers, and has been invited to speak at dental and respiratory conferences throughout the world.
In collaboration with the University of Limerick, Patrick was the instructor in a clinical study investigating the Buteyko Method as a treatment for rhinitis in asthma. As published in the leading rhinitis journal Otolaryngology, the results showed a 70% reduction of nasal symptoms in participants, including snoring, loss of smell, nasal congestion and difficulty breathing through the nose.
Patrick has been interviewed internationally for radio and television, including a recent interview with Dr Joseph Mercola, founder of the world's largest health website, Patrick's message is simple; breathe through your nose in a calm, gentle and efficient manner. That's all that matters.
DVD sets include Buteyko Clinic set for adults, and ButeykoKids meet Dr Mew for children.

What's included: the "Close Your Mouth" manual (that's also sold separately), a DVD where you can see the author teaching a seminar, and a "Mindfulness" CD (which I haven't yet listened to.

Should you buy this, or just the "Close Your Mouth"? I prefer this. I just read the manual, but was doing some of the exercises wrong. It's definitely worth it to have both the written and video versions.

What's the premise? That asthma is caused by overbreathing, and that, by changing your breathing habits, you can reverse your asthma. To make it work, you have to do about 90 minutes of breathing exercises a day. The key measurement of progress is the CP (Control Pause), which is how long you can comfortably hold your breath after exhaling.

Does it work? So far, my CP has gone from 8 to 18 after slightly more than 3 weeks worth of exercises. I feel much better. My nose, which has been almost completely closed as long as I can remember, has opened completely. I also haven't had a single asthma attack, despite stopping my medication.

However, do be aware that it will take months of daily exercises to fully conquer your asthma (the magic CP point is 40, and it took me 3 weeks to advance 10 points).

But, look at what you get in return: your life, minus asthma and medications!

Many times just reading a book is not enough! Having the dvd, cd, and the manual is definitely a plus. I was previously so blessed with my "Anxiety Free" book purchase by Patrick McKeown. I knew I wanted this package to go along with it as well. If you are looking for relief from asthma, rhinitis, and snoring--- help is on the way with this complete buteyko clinic. Making an investment in your health through this complete instruction package is definitely worthwhile if you value healing to your body. It not only will make your days much easier to live---but it could save your life. It is written in layman's terms and easy to understand. The exercises are not hard at all, but you must be willing to make a committment to do them. Knowledge is somewhat worthless if you do not put it to good use. I rarely write any reviews, but this complete buteyko clinic method contained in the written materials along with the cd and dvd is definitely worth every penny. Five Stars!!!!!

Everything you need to reverse your over-breathing and therefore your asthma is here, but you must do the breathing exercises using your FULL concentration and relaxation. I'm a 64 year old female with mild asthma and I have been following the program for two and a half months. I immediately felt better just from taping my mouth at night (I know. It sounds weird, but it's a simple solution to mouth breathing during sleep) and sleeping on my left side. I continued to feel better as I mastered keeping my mouth closed and stopped cheating by yawning, sighing, and sniffing. It took me a full month before my control pause (objective measure of progress) started improving, but now it has improved from 15 to 20. For me, doing the meditation tape each night is what allowed me to improve the control pause because it helps me to relax as I do the breath reduction. And I'm slowly accessing the ability to relax as I do the other breathing sets. At my current rate of improvement, it will take about 6 months to completely normalize my breathing and another 6 months to be sure that my body has accepted the lower volume of air as the new normal. I do not think I could have improved the control pause without the cd and dvd.
My only criticism of the program is that the manual states that your control pause should increase by 3-4 seconds each weeks. I think it would be more helpful to stress that for some people, progress is much slower and list strategies to use if you get stuck. Nevertheless, it is a fantastic program that will work if you don't give up. I have also read that the author will actually answer your questions if you write him, so if you get stuck as I did, you can use him as a resource.

My asthma was out of control - I was using my inhaler 6 - 8 times a day and sometimes it barely worked. At times I couldn't climb the stairs and had to lean on the counter while doing dishes. I tried so many natural alternatives - sometimes I'd get a little better and then I'd be back to the big wheeze. I'd heard about Buteyko and after realizing all those supplements were not helping (and fearing I would die) I desperately sought a demo on YouTube. The relief was almost immediate and after practicing what I'd seen for a few more days, the improvement was dramatic. I figured I should find a guide to help do the exercises properly and found this book and DVD set. It's only been a few weeks and I am not using the inhaler at all. The most amazing part is my asthma had been worse at night, using the inhaler about 3 times per night. Shortly after starting the breathing method, I had NO asthma at night. After suffering for many months with severe asthma, this program is nothing less than amazing - I have my breath back!

The book could use a little editing and formatting (like many self published books), but I will not take off any stars so others will not be put off. The DVD is a nice compliment to the book and it is good to refer back to them as you are starting out so it reinforces what/how to do the exercises. Patrick gives an outline of what various levels of relief you'll reach when your breath hold timing reaches certain points and where you have to be in order to be asthma free all the time.

Asthmatics may fear using a method that involves holding your breath - this feeling is fleeting as the breathing improvement quickly kicks in. Breathing through your nose and breath holds are the essence of the exercises. If your nose is stuffed up, an exercise to clear it is included.
