  title={Strengths , Weaknesses , and Possibilities of the Buteyko Breathing Method},
  author={R. Courtney}

A number of clinical trials indicate that it is a successful treatment for asthma; however, there is little support for the carbon dioxide theory that underpins the Buteyko Method. There are, however, many other possible reasons that the breathing techniques used by the… CONTINUE READING
