- Customer Reviews (0)
This book is the first western book to discuss the syndrome of overbreathing and how it affects the entire body. It provides a detailed, easy to follow introduction to hyperventilation, and how using Buteyko will improve your health. Case studies of people who have successfully used the Buteyko Method to control their asthma, sleep problems, allergies, etc. are included, along with stories from Buteyko practitioners.
The Carbon Dioxide Syndrome is the result of Jennifer and Russell Stark’s research and observation over more than ten years of teaching the Buteyko Method to thousands of clients with ill-health. Their knowledge and understanding of the mechanics of breathing and how it affects every cell in the body gives many answers to modern diseases. ‘Hidden hyperventilation’, or overbreathing affects the entire body, because oxygen and carbon dioxide are required by every single cell. When the loss of carbon dioxide is increased due to excessive breathing, the supply of oxygen to every part of the body is restricted, and it no longer functions as efficiently as it should. This may lead to disease or ill-health. The scientific explanations are simple and easy to follow. They are combined with lengthy discussion on asthma, and numerous other conditions such as allergies, eczema, emphysema, disturbances of digestion, snoring, and other sleep disorders that Buteyko is able to help. Find out why people teach Buteyko and why people learn the Method to help themselves as you read stories from Buteyko practitioners and people with real breathing problems who are already using Buteyko.
The book is an ideal read for anyone considering the Buteyko Method as a possible way of improving their health. If you are interested in Buteyko, but are unsure whether the techniques are right for you, The Carbon Dioxide Syndrome, is an excellent introduction to the Method that has made life for many asthmatics and sufferers of ‘hidden hyperventilation’ so much better. The book also helps those who are already using Buteyko techniques to understand fully what Buteyko is doing for them, and why. The Starks have extensive knowledge of the Buteyko Method, and share this expertise in a straightforward, user friendly way. While The Carbon Dioxide Syndrome does not contain a Buteyko program to follow, it does enable you to understand how breathing affects you and also how the Buteyko method can improve control over your health.
