Asthma can be triggered by a high pollen concentration in the event of a thunderstorm, particularly in spring and early summer.
People do not need a history of asthma or hay fever to be affected.
Clinical trials of Buteyko Breathing have shown that people with asthma breathe in excess of the normal amount of air for a healthy individual, and this may result in the intake of an excessive amount of airborne triggers including pollen.
By correcting breathing back to the physiological norm of 4-5 litres per minute for an adult (less for children), people intake less allergens and may experience a decrease in asthma symptoms.
Normal recommendations of avoiding triggers where possible like staying indoors and having a plan for the onset of symptoms, should of course be continued.
Throughout the years, Buteyko has shown to be a proven asthma relief treatment. Attend a free Buteyko Breathing seminar in person or watch it online from the home page of this website for further information. You can also request a free information pack and we are happy to answer your questions.
The Buteyko course is suitable for children from age three through to adults of any age. A decrease in symptoms may often occur within the first 24 hours by attending a free introductory seminar. Buteyko courses continue after each seminar for another 4 sessions of 90 minutes over the next 4 days.
You can also watch the free seminar (first course session) from the home page by scrolling to the bottom.
