Having a partly or fully blocked nose is a common problem for people about to undertake a Buteyko course. It is also one of the earliest symptoms to respond to the breathing exercises with the majority of people leaving the first course session breathing through their nose, some of them for the first time in years. Initially the nose will continue to bock,. But once the breathing pattern is fully corrected the nose rarely blocks.
Sinusitis/Hay fever/ Rhinitis/Nasal Polyps/Allergies
Smoke, perfume, grasses, pollens, dust mites, cats, dogs, horses, feathers, cleaning products, certain foods, infections and many other things can all trigger the above conditions.
In people who over-breathe and therefore have lower alveolar CO2 levels, the immune system is compromised leading to hypersensitivity to allergens, and an over reaction to these normally harmless substances. Correcting breathing patterns will lead to an improved immune system and an improvement in these conditions. Even people with severe allergies who have been unable to nose breathe for years can be helped.
In addition the skin condition eczema, often experienced in conjunction with allergy and asthma, will also respond to correcting breathing patterns with the Buteyko Institute Method
