on K.P. Buteyko-s VDBE Method approval (in 1990)
in accordance with the Cooperation Agreement of January 3, 1990
between the USSR AMS NRMRC
and the therapeutic center
headed by Candidate of Medicine K. P. Buteyko
The VDBE Method therapy was tested on 50 patients
of the USSR AMSE NRMRC Institute of Clinical Radiology departments and departments
of Kiev Shevchenko CRCB with the purpose of identifying the clinical and
pathophysiological mechanisms of Buteyko Breathing in persons affected by
ionizing radiology in Chernobyl disaster.
The following results were achieved: hemodynamic, blood test and intestinal
system improvements were revealed in 82% of patients. Upon analysis of patients-
records and diaries, the following conclusions can be made:
1. The VDBE method reduces the use of drugs, and in time totally discontinues
medication therapy for some individuals.
2. In multiple therapy, the VDBE method provides improvement of blood and
some hemodynamic (blood pressure, pulse) values.
3. The VDBE method as one of the bracing non-conventional methods does not
result in complications or side-effects.
4. The VDBE Method is further recommendable for rehabilitation of the Chernobyl
disaster victims as one of the drug-free therapy components.
