my name is ben alsford, im 17 years old and ever since i was little i have wanted to join the armed forces as an officer. however a month back my carreers officer found out that i had asthma. i was told that i needed to have 4 years without medication before i could join. i have been looking high and low for an alternative treatment to astma and i found the Buteyko Breathing technique. this probably isnt new to any of u, but i am amazed how well it is working. ever since i have been concentrating on nose breathing i have found that i do not need my salbutamol releiver.
