I recently attended a programme run by Glenn. My wife suggested it, as she does most wise things to me. She thought it would help my sleeping issues, being poor sleep, restless, snoring etc, all those things that your partners love about you when you are sleeping.
The improvements I've noticed in three months have been astronomical compared to the six months that I was on the CPAP machine and I would recommend anybody, regardless of their health situation to try this method because it is made a huge difference in my life. I would definitely recommend anyone who suffers from poor sleep to consider conducting one of these courses before having a sleep study conducted.
At the age of 5 my son (a regular bed wetter and sufferer of hayfever) started to have night terrors, which were scarey for him as well as us his parents. The bedwetting we thought he would grow out of; the hayfever possibly as well though we gave infrequent medication as required, but the night terrors we could find no treatment or strategy for. At times the terrors became as frequent as once or twice a week which made our son apprehensive about going to bed...

I did the Buteyko course in July 2005. The advice given on the course just made perfect sense and I still use the breathing exercises to this day to help control my sleep apnoea.
I havent used my CPAP machine since day two of the Buteyko course. Its been sitting in the wardrobe gathering dust for 8 months now. Thank you Buteyko.
Doing the Buteyko programme was the best thing Ive ever done for myself. I was suffering with Hyperventilation Syndrome, panic attacks, and sleep apnoea. This caused my blood pressure to swing up and down. I was taking Betaloc to control the blood pressure which added to my symptoms. I was also on medication for high Cholesterol, from which I had side effects.
I was diagnosed with sleep apnoea in 2004. A CPAP machine was recommended. The prospect of being hooked up to a machine that breathed for me at night was freaky but I was running out of options.
