What patients say Clinical cases of some patients
Maria Vasilievna P., 70 years old
My diagnosis was hypoxia. I was terrible to look at; I was all black, with deep
blue lips and hands. Ambulance would drive to my place endlessly. There was
a shop within like fifty yard-s walk, and I couldn-t go there on my own. Now,
look at me, can you say I-m ill? Of course not. Now I-m the master of my breath

I had it all, high blood pressure, bronchitis, asthma attacks. Inhalations were
made on the hourly basis. I didn-t hope for anything or anyone. Now, I was born
anew thanks to Vilma Avgustovna (Vilma Avgustovna Genina, a doctor who uses
S., 3.5 years old
Diagnosis: bronchial asthma, hay fever, Milton-s disease, food and drug allergy,
home sensitization, II degree adenoids, intestinal girardiasis (benign migratory
glossitis). Ill since he was 1.5. Before starting the Buteyko Method, he had
been taken to hospital 6 times in 6 months. Attacks of allergy came every spring,
as well as Milton-s disease, skin itch, and the bronchial asthma reaction to
birch leaf breaking and bird cherry blooming. The child could not attend nursery
school. Drugs taken: 0.2 g of aminophylline 2 times a day, 1 teaspoonful of
broncholitine 3 times a day, 3-4 drops of solutanum once a day. Asthma was eliminated
by drops of up to 0.3 ml of aminophylline intravenously. Taken for the Buteyko
Method therapy from hospital. The initial breathing depth (the inhaled air volume)
was 20 times above normal, the pulse was 140 beats per minute, and the breathing
frequency was 48 per minute. Clear clinical improvements were observed when
the breathing depth became 6 times above normal, the tongue pattern disappeared
and the skin cleared. One month after the therapy started, the values were as
follows: the breathing depth was 4 times above normal, the pulse was 86-80 beats
per minute, and the breathing frequency was 26-24 per minute. The general condition
of the child improved drastically.

I suffered from asthma for 18 years. The list of drugs I used to take would
fill a whole page. I felt so bad that it-s beyond any descriptive powers; I
couldn-t come down the first floor without a helping hand. Now I am here and
being treated successfully. And I hilled potatoes on Sunday.
Olya B-s mother.
My daughter had chronic pneumonia, an inborn bronchi defect. You just name the
drugs she didn-t take in! She had herbal treatment as well. She-d spent literally
all time in hospital and felt worse and worse. They told me to forget her, she
couldn-t be saved. And now the child was born again. Many thanks to Buteyko
and Vilma Avgustovna.

D., 2 years 4 months old.
Diagnosis: bronchial asthma, allergy to drugs. Since he was 8 months, the boy
was ill with frequent prolepses occurring on the monthly basis during the recent

of solutanum 3 times a day, 1-2 pills of papaverine 3 times a day, drops of
aminophylline and reopolyglukine intravenously. The child was taken for the
Buteyko Method therapy from hospital. Initial values: each inhale volume was
10 times above normal, the pulse was 120 beats per minute, and the breathing
frequency was 50 per minute. On the 4th day of therapy the inhale volume was
only 4 times above normal, and the child could do without drugs. During one
therapy month, there were no kinks, the condition improved dramatically, the
child became calmer. Breathing was even, out-breaths were followed by a short
pause. No wheeze or cough. Skin itch and rash were totally gone, though each
inhale volume was still 3 times above normal, the pulse was 80 beats per minute,
and the breathing frequency was 22 per minute. The child is still going through
the VDBE method therapy.
Ê., 27 years old.
Diagnosis: chronic asthmatic obstructive bronchitis, chronic adnexitis, thyrotoxicosis.

of the Buteyko Method therapy. By the end of month's therapy, the breathing
depth was 6 times above normal, the pulse was 74 beats per minute, no kinks
Lidiya Alexandrovna Fessenko
To Mikhail Sergeyevich Gorbachev,
General Secretary of the CPSU Central Committee
From Lidiya Alexandrovna Fessenko
"I, Lidiya Alexandrovna Fessenko, suffered from bronchial asthma since
1976. It began with asthmatoid bronchitis that developed into bronchial asthma
in a month-s time. I turned to the allergologist and pulmanologist in our regional
hospital, went to Alma-Ata for acupuncture and was in the heliotherapy hospital
there. During five years, two or more months were spent in Yalta, where I was
cured in a commercial clinic. For three years I was also expecting an invitation
to the saline caves in Nakhichevan, but was never able to get there. The invitation
that arrived was for January 1985. I felt very bad, flew to Moscow, and the
ambulance took me to hospital there. In the hospital I fainted of no-spa, and
aminophylline stopped breathing. In a Moscow hospital, in January 1985, they
diagnosed intrinsic asthma, pulmonary emphysema, pulmonary fibrosis, heart weakness.
During therapy, I was allergic to drugs that they normally gave me to jugulate
kinks. I lost hope. I was very ill during the long 9 years. I couldn-t walk;
the smallest physical loads caused kinks that happened very often, 6 -7 times
a day and more. In the winter months (December through February) I didn-t leave
the apartment; I couldn-t live one day without drugs or inhalator. In December
1984 the "Sobesednik" published an article about K. P. Buteyko-s method
that cured asthma. I started the independent Buteyko Method therapy in May 1985,
and the very last 6-hour kink was on May 22, 1985. By the fall, I could interrupt
kinks by holding breath. In January 1986, I went back to work. I feel really
furious that though K. P. Buteyko-s method has long been known, I couldn-t read
about it before. Why did our doctors not know the method or recommend the Buteyko
Method breathing to me when I fell ill first?! I was retired for seven years,
I had a 120 rouble pension, and due to that the Government lost 10,000 roubles.
And I could have worked and been useful for the country, I was only 35 when
I fell ill. I-ve been back at work for almost a year, the kinks are no more,
and I feel terrific. The Buteyko Method doesn-t want hospitals or drugs, just
wish and willpower that help fight the disease. Therefore, dear Mikhail Sergeyevich,
please pay attention to the outrageous neglect of the discovery of global importance
that brings people back to life and can save hundreds of millions of roubles
for the country.
