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.
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!

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

I Skyped with Patrick many times and he watched me breathe and helped me to follow his recommendations in his books. I did his exercises every day for 6 months. My difficulty to breath problems are gone and no allergies this season. A pure miracle!
This book and CD is really helpful for people suffering with breathing problems. Very easy to follow and understand useful tips for people with COPD
Professor John Fenton, ENT Consultant, Limerick Regional Hospital
In our association during the past 3-4 years on a purely anecdotal basis, I can say that the vast majority of all of my patients have received great benefit from their nasal symptoms following instruction at Patrick McKeown’s workshops
Colin, Amazon Customer Review for Close Your Mouth: Self Help Buteyko Manual
Close Your Mouth is a great book for me because it taught me a way to breathe that was different than anything I had been taught or had practiced before. The reduced breathing techniques gave me a sense of relaxation and ease that was great. It actually felt like I was breathing correctly for the first time in a long time. Like breathing actually filled me up with oxygen to optimum levels. The tape on the mouth at night was great. After a day of using the practices I put the tape on at night and the next morning woke up and popped out of bed full of energy and feeling totally refreshed. It was amazing really. I don’t recommend putting the tape on without doing the exercises during the day first, because your body won’t know what it is doing and it will just be really uncomfortable.

Patrick has delivered exceptional results for me on a personal basis, through a high level of diligence, knowledge and patience. I thoroughly recommend Patrick and his Buteyko programmes for anyone wishing to improve their sports performance or asthma without prescription medicine.

Patrick McKeown is a consummate professional. He is passionate about helping people learn to overcome asthma and is living proof that the Buteyko method works
I have been engaged in exercise since high school. I started playing racquetball at age 25 and played into my mid-fifties. I have always enjoyed jogging and have participated in 10k’s, 5k,s and some half-marathons throughout my life. Five years ago while running at a challenging pace, my breathing totally slowed down and I could not catch my breath. After resting for a month and starting back up, the same result.For the next four years I looked for the answer. I was diagnosed with exercise induced asthma. Every time I would start back up jogging, my airways would tighten and it would last up to a month. I tried everything, e.g. maintenance inhalant, rescue inhalant, a breathing nebulizer, Himalayan rock salt inhaler. Nothing worked for over four years.Finally I came upon a book describing The Buteyko method discovered by Professor Konstantin Buteyko. Professor Buteyko suggests that we are overbreathing through our mouths and that we have to retrain on how to slow down our breathing through our noses. I read the book and understand the theory but because it takes some discipline I went to the Buteyko Web Site and found a Practitioner in the Cincinnati area. His name is Greg Rittenhouse. There was a fee for the initial visit but Greg is so dedicated and sincere in wanting to see a positive outcome that he has been available continuously to answer any questions that I may have. It has been six months and my Controlled Pause has increased demonstrably and my jogging has returned in grand style. Miracles do happen.
Patrick is my hero! He is helping millions to live normally.

“The Oxygen Advantage truly changed how I treat patients, and how I work with athletes who are having issues with their breathing. It has also been a powerful influence on my own life and health.
Patrick’s new, greatly expanded book will allow me to apply his clinical experience and science better in the world of chronic disease, which I deal with every day. I am grateful for this encyclopedic work, which is loaded with very simple and practical techniques that anyone can learn to improve their health and performance.”
Australia’s leading naturopath and breathing coach calls The Breathing Cure: “THE definitive book on breathing.”
I didn’t realise the detrimental effect of breathing through the mouth during rest and the importance of nasal breathing. Implementing the exercises resulted in improved health and in turn better sports performance.

This is one of the best courses I have attended, and offered so much more beyond the book in terms of information and practical application. Patrick breaks down the physiology of breathing, and how it affects performance, health, and physical well being.
Professor John Fenton
I can say that the vast majority of all of my patients have received great benefit with their nasal symptoms following instruction at the workshops.
The Oxygen Advantage has helped my Olympians become more aware of their breathing. We practice nasal breathing during foam rolling, warm ups, cool downs and during certain prescribed exercise.
Before, I missed football, parties and swimming. Now I am able to do everything I couldn’t do.
Your approach made a significant difference to my breathing during sports performance and throughout my daily life. It is simple, makes sense and should be taught to all.
Hi Patrick, I did the Buteyko course with you in Kilkenny and Dublin at least 10 years ago and want to let you know how it changed everything! No more bronchitis, asthma, sinusitis, colds. Brilliant! I took a look at the Feldenkrais summit. ..I’ve been using both Feldenkrais, Alexander technique and Buteyko in all my vocal and saxophone teaching for a while now.
Anyway just want to let you know how well it went for me and how grateful I am.
