Are you concerned about your symptoms? Is this you?

Has your health been getting worse despite your and your doctor's best efforts?
Is your medication becoming less effective?
Are you taking more medication year after year to control your symptoms?
Are your symptoms multiplying? Are you becoming a "fat folder" patient?
Do you have MUPS (multiple unexplained physical symptoms)?
Are you a motivated individual keen to take control of your health rather than it controlling you?
Would you like to be less dependent on medication or devices and improve your health naturally?

Do you have these signs of dysfunctional breathing?

  • fast or heavy breathing
  • frequent mouth breathing
  • breathing with your upper chest
  • shoulders moving up and down
  • irregular breathing, holding then rapid breaths
  • frequent sighing and yawning
  • holding the tummy in
  • slumped posture with head forward
  • taking in big breaths through the mouth when speaking
  • noisy breathing while sitting still
  • snoring
  • dry mouth in the morning
  • frequent throat clearing

 

Could you improve your health by improving your breathing?

Dysfunctional breathing can decrease oxygen supply to cells and tissues of the body. This can cause or increase symptoms. From asthma and allergies, sinusitis and cough, sleep problems, anxiety and panic, IBS, cold hands, brain fog and a whole host of symptoms.

See here for a more comprehensive list of symptoms.

Better breathing could increase your oxygen and improve your health.

Coughing and sleep

“I am extremely happy that I invested in Buteyko breathing work with Janet Winter. Discovering I can breathe through my nose and not feel like I’m suffocating has been revolutionary; sleeping with my mouth closed has improved my sleep in all sorts of subtle ways. Working with Janet has been a powerful part of my journey in getting rid of a persistent cough and dropping reliance on pharmaceutical drugs. If you are serious about living with more ease and less coughing I can highly recommend Janet as a sympathetic and supportive teacher, guide and mentor” Victoria

ME/CFS


"I have been suffering from Chronic fatigue syndrome for eight +years, exhausted yet "wired" too, unable to sleep at night and prone to deep anxiety. The most dramatic outcome has been that I now sleep well nearly every night which has made a huge difference to me. The other improvements have included a marked reduction in anxiety levels, lethargy during the day, chronic exhaustion and headaches. I would recommend Buteyko breathing to anyone who would like to improve their health and well being – a must do for Chronic Fatigue. A good teacher is very important and I have really appreciated the support and encouragement that Janet has given me. It’s been excellent value for money and the benefits I’ve seen have been real and significant." Lynn

Optimising health and wellbeing

"I hadn’t really realised how badly I was breathing until I trained with Janet in Buteyko. It’s been a complete revelation and I really believe that learning to breathe correctly is one of the most important self-care tools we can learn to optimise our health and wellbeing. Learning this method as lockdown started was a real bonus to me as it definitely helped me to feel calmer. I’d recommend this course to anybody – even if you think you’re healthy and know how to look after yourself, you’ll be blown away by what a difference our breathing makes and how far away we’ve moved from correct breathing in our modern lives. Thank you Janet!!" Suzy https://peppermintwellness.co.uk

Blocked nose, difficulty breathing, stress

"It has been about 8 months since I did the Buteyko training and I’m breathing clearly pretty much all of the time. I was finding it very hard to breathe before the course and now I feel much more aware of what is happening and how to help it calm down. I really appreciate all the support from you Janet. Your calming emails helped to ease out any stress I was feeling about the process and encouraged me to keep going” Ella

Snoring, fatigue, cold hand and chilblains

“I have been struggling with poor sleep, low energy and palpitations for the past five years. Although I have experienced some improvement with various alternative therapies nothing had really resolved my insomnia and consequent exhaustion. However, since practicing the simple Buteyko breathing exercises I have slept well for the past five weeks and have more energy than I can remember for many years – so much so I am planning a long-distance charity bike ride. I feel generally calmer, my hands and feet are no longer blocks of ice and my chill blains have disappeared! What a wonderful, simple therapy.” Lisa naturopath https://www.lisarutter.co.uk/

Asthma, anxiety


“Before I took the Buteyko breathing course my health in general was poor, but the primary health issue was asthma.  I couldn’t walk more than a few steps without gasping and coughing. Within one week of doing the exercises I slept right through the night peacefully. My cough stopped after about three weeks and my breathing felt so much more peaceful and relaxed.  I can walk anywhere now and I can walk for hours on end. I no longer need combined asthma inhalers now and I have not used my blue inhaler in quite some time. I would recommend Buteyko to anyone with any kind of breathing issue and with anxiety issues too” Anni

Dysfunctional breathing, fatigue, pain

"Before I started the course I had days I couldn’t leave the house as I had lack of energy and sometimes fell over. A consultant told me I was not breathing properly. As soon as I knew I had a breathing issue I contacted Janet as I wanted expert help. The main outcome I’ve seen over this journey is an improvement in my life. I can now start back to work gradually anyway and begin to live my life. I’m aware what causes what, which for me is important. I know what to do and manage things easier. My experience with the Buteyko method so far has been very positive. Both physical and emotional elements play a huge part so for me, I know that and now I know how and what to do if my breathing gets out of control." Jackie

POTS (postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome) and ME/CFS


"After the course I noticed reduced anxiety, increased relaxation, less dizziness and panic, stronger muscles when exercising and an increase in energy.  Thank you for your compassion and understanding Janet; it’s very rare that I speak to someone who has a very good idea of what I am going through." Keely

Anxiety sneezing disturbed sleep

"I was pleasantly surprised to note further reductions in symptoms, including much less sneezing, weight and anxiety had stabilised, itchy eyes feel better and I only need now to get up once in the night to pee, not bad for a 74 year old male. I partly attribute this to Buteyko helping to reconnect me with a more regular meditation practice. Many thanks, it has been a very positive experience." Chris

Asthma, anxiety, sleep, inflammation

"I am completely blown away at the results from Janet's coaching. As a coach myself who teaches breathwork I was hesitant to believe I could learn a technique that would give me such relief. I'm SO GLAD I took the chance. Not only am I learning a deeper level of relaxation but I'm sleeping better, my asthma symptoms are almost gone (used inhaler once since I started training) I feel like I have less swelling and inflammation in my body and fewer periods of illness. I'm VERY happy with the results and plan to practice this method the rest of my life". Renee

Poem - the art of breathing.

my gut asked me if I was having a hard time being caught between my heart and my head
I nodded I said I didn't know if I could live with either of them anymore
"my heart is always sad about something that happened yesterday while my head is always worried about something that may happen tomorrow,"
my gut smiled and said: "in that case, you should go stay with your lungs for a while,"
your lungs are the perfect place for you there is no yesterday in your lungs there is no tomorrow there either there is only now
there is only inhale there is only exhale there is only this moment
there is only breath and in that breath you can rest
I packed a little bag and walked to the door of my lungs before I could even knock she opened the door with a smile and as a gust of air embraced me she said "what took you so long?"

(Excerpted from a poem by John Roedel: My brain and my heart divorced)

Breathe less for good health, low, slow and light
