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 Amazon.com 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, Mercola.com. 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.
