I tried medition, transpersonal healing and everything I could get my hands on. I've searched all forums including the net. I have even been a regular on the Shn Asthma forum where asthmatics vent their feelings and their experience about the different kind of medication and the effects on them. I could not even remember how I came to the Buteyko site. I have spent hours reading and re-reading all the materials I could find about this technique. Sad to say there was no practitioner where I am from and the book and video I ordered has not yet arrived.
Nevertheless, I made an outline of all those who shared the technique and tried it. I do not even know if I am doing the technique right but I am very excited about the fact that from 16 puffs of the fenoterol/ipratropium a day I was able to cut it to 6 puffs a day in just a week of practicing the technique. I also am able to go up the stairs without panting.
For this I am very grateful. I can hardly wait to get my copy of the book and the video but in the meantime I am going to continue what I am doing. I am willing to share this experience of mine to your contributors.
