I remember being told as a BK that it is often a hallmark of 2nd birth brahmins that they get asthma - on which basis over 20% of the UK population may be 2nd birth brahmins (which makes about 15M brahmins - Satyug can start at last!)

I 've had asthma for 35 yrs and recently came across the Buteyko Method. There are many (not very good) sites on this including http://www.buteyko.com/.

I essence Dr Butekyo in the 1950s came up with this idea that overbreathing and resultant carbon dioxide level reduction in the blood causes the lungs to "phlegm up" as a protection against further CO2 loss.

Hence breath less - keep hold of your CO2 - body chemistry works better - body doesn't produce phlegm - no asthma.

I've tried it and it definitely works. The only problem I found is that it's hard to hold my breath when asthma strikes - very counter intuitive. But when I do, it does cause dilation of the bronchioles and relief from asthma.

It's worth looking at if you get asthma (or runny nose / cold like symptoms alot).

It seems the method isn't well known as there is no profit for the drug companies in it.

Hello Jim,

Two friends, one with asthma and the other one with severe headaches told me that they have great results with this method.


There is life after BK!

Om shanti Bhais,

Get rid of the dairy (all dairy products) and you will see very interesting results.

My health improved dramtically when I did this well over a decade ago.

Take Care,
