    o In your introduction - explain the theory behind

    the Buteyko Method.

    client whether their nose feels more blocked,

    less blocked or the same.

    What is the significance of the CP?

    oThe lower the CP, the greater the breathing volume.

    oIf CP less than twenty seconds: main symptoms are present-

    blocked nose, snoring, insomnia, fatigue, coughing, wheezing,

    breathlessness, exercise induced asthma.

    The lower the CP, the greater the breathing volume.

    If CP less than twenty seconds: main symptoms are present-

    blocked nose, snoring, insomnia, fatigue, coughing, wheezing,

    breathlessness, exercise induced asthma.

    oCP between 20 to 40 seconds: main symptoms are gone but have

    symptoms if exposed to a trigger.

    oCP of 40 seconds: very rarely will you have symptoms.

    Note: you will feel better each time your CP increases by five seconds

    Essential rules to make progress:

    o Client will feel better each time the CP increases by 5

    seconds.

    o If the CP does not change, the client will not feel better.

    CP will increase by 3 to 4 seconds during the first 2 to 3

    weeks. When CP reaches 20 seconds, it is normal for the

    progression to slow down. It is not uncommon to remain stuck at 20

    seconds for 8 to 10 weeks. In order to increase a CP from 20 to 40

    seconds, it is necessary to perform physical exercise.

    Physical exercise is necessary to increase the CP above 20

    seconds.

    oThe most accurate CP is taken first thing after waking.

    oThe CP as taken throughout the day will provide feedback of

    breathing at that time.

    The goal is to have a morning CP of 40 seconds for 6 months.

    Factors which slow down CP progress

    recovery)

    CP of 10 seconds; breathing is noisy, loud, irregular,

    large, heavy, erratic, and effortful.

  • MEASURINGMEASURINGHOW BIG YOU BREATHEHOW BIG YOU BREATHE

    CP of 20 seconds; breathing is intense but calmer than

    if the CP is 10 seconds. A natural pause occurs between

  • 3 STEPS TO INCREASE CP3 STEPS TO INCREASE CP

    o Step 1: Stop big breathing

    -breathe through nose only

    -avoid yawning with big breaths

    -avoid sighing

    o Step 2: Reduced breathing exercises

    o Step3: Physical exercise with efficient breathing

    o Step 1 & 2 to reach CP of 20 seconds

    o Step 3 to reach CP of 40 Seconds and to maintain high CP

    Stronger exercises increase control pause faster.

    Continue with gentle reduced breathing during

    detoxification and drink warm water with half teaspoon

    of natural sea salt.

    Depending on the person; symptoms include:

    insomnia, head cold, loss of appetite, runny nose,

    going to bathroom a little more often, slight headache,
