What People Say

Sangita Dosanjh
Having complained of debilitating anxiety and stress symptoms to my GP and numerous other therapists for the last 30 years. These "miraculously" lifted in 2014, when I applied the reduced breathing volume techniques as recommended by Patrick and Buteyko Breathing. I took up yoga in 1997 , focusing on the recommended breathing techniques of the deep full breath and never understood until recently, why I gained little lasting relief .The proof is in the pudding , my new breath pattern has improved my asanas well beyond expectation. The change in the breath is subtle the results life changing.
Sarah Lafferty
I wanted to write to thank you for sharing your amazing breathing technique and making it so easy to learn and follow. I have had insomnia and anxiety for years, which I just assumed was 'hard wired'. After making some simple changes - doing the mouth taping, the light breathing exercises and some of the walking / jogging exercises I feel like a completely new person. I sleep solidly through the night. I feel like I can take anything on at work and any stressor that comes up. I am no longer chronically congested and clearing my throat. I even look forward to physical exercise and have really increased my fitness level. When really relaxed my Bolt score is up to 38 from around 14. Now it seems really weird to see others at the gym heaving and grunting manically. The only challenge is trying to convince others - including trainers - that I really am working hard when they can't see me breathing! You have shared something really valuable and special with the world and I am passing this on to everyone I know. Thank you so much.

“I read Patrick's book in 2010 after being hospitalised with asthma for 4 days. It was an amazing discovery for me as within six months I was able to stop using all my medications. Most of the time I have my asthma completely under control and last Saturday I climbed Snowdon! Thanks again for helping me change my life!”
Mary B. Geidel
“Mr. Mckeown, I started this technique about 2 months ago. I got your book "Anxiety Free" and it has really really helped me . I am stronger, less anxious,more at ease, I sleep better. Thank you for all of this. I look forward to my excersises every morning. I started with a control pause of 8 to ten and now I am up to between 17 and 20. I am a former smoker, 54 years old. I want to share this wonderful method with all my friends. Thank you again. This is life changing.”
Bonnie Durtschi
Hi Patrick, I saw your interview with Dr Mercola about 2 weeks ago. It has changed my life already. I have had Asthma since I was about 10 yrs old, I am 59 yrs now. When I was in my early 20's the Dr told my mother she was lucky I was still alive. He put me on a pulmo-aid machine 3-4 times daily, along with prednisone, Brethine, theopholine, and another drug. I have learned about good nutrition, and clean living sources. I was down to using a steroid inhaler and a rescue inhaler once a day. I saw your Buteyko Breathing youtube and from there I bought your book Close Your Mouth.
Gaye Lawrence

Patrick Holford, Author & Nutritionist
“Thousands of people have found that breathing training has helped them to control, and even overcome their asthma. If you want to teach yourself this valuable technique I thoroughly recommend you read Asthma Free Naturally by Patrick McKeown”
