The struggle for relief among asthmatics is real.  If you or a loved one suffered from asthma, you will know how what it is like.  People with asthma are often given steroids for prolonged periods of time, whether inhaled, injected, or swallowed.

Dr. Konstantin Buteyko

In the 1960s, Ukranian doctor, Dr. Konstantin Buteyko, challenged the pharmaceutical industry by finding a way for people with asthma to effectively reduce their intake of steroids.  His discovery treated the root cause of the disease rather than just treating the symptoms.  He emphasized the importance of breathing techniques, proper nutrition, and lifestyle modifications to control asthma and lessen the reliance on steroids.

Dr. Konstantin Buteyko developed a simple yet effective technique that can be incorporated into your daily routine to complement your current treatment plan.  These techniques can be done while sitting, standing, or even exercising.  He also figured out a way to measure the effect of various types of food, so it is easy to choose the food that will help relieve your asthma.

Many people have to take steroids for asthma

Steroids help asthmatics by supplementing the low levels of naturally produced steroids in an Asthmatic’s body.  Asthmatics have lower levels of steroids because their adrenals which is supposed to produce steroids are getting less than ideal levels of oxygen.  Dr. Buteyko took note of this and his technique was able to help asthmatics deliver more oxygen to their adrenals and other organs.

In the Philippines, one of the biggest followers of Dr. Konstantin Buteyko is Dr. Charles Edward Florendo.  Dr. Florendo, was also an asthmatic having lived on asthma medications and even survived a life-threatening asthma attack as a child.  Since then, Dr. Florendo had sought ways to improve his condition while reducing his medicines.

Dr .Florendo’s asthma patients have successfully avoided asthma attacks and no longer take steroids for the past 10 years and counting.  This means significant savings for patients, and relief from steroid intake side effects.

Steroids taken for prolonged periods have a lot of side effects.  If you would like to know more about how steroids work and its side effects, you may read this article: “Why do Asthmatics take steroids, why they are bad for you, and what doctors don’t tell you about them.”
