What is smart breathing?
SMART Breathing is symptom management and respiratory training, a drug-free program that controls breathing related problems without gadgets.
The resulting optimal oxygenation may help you to get fit and stay well.
You will learn essential breathing exercises, based on the Buteyko principles, that can help you overcome shortness of breath, asthma attacks, blocked nose, sinus congestion, mouth breathing, hyperventilation and anxiety attacks.
It can help you to stop snoring and improve your quality of sleep.
Retraining your breathing habits improves your respiratory health, which can help in the management of chronic diseases such as diabetes, obesity, cardiac problems, blood pressure issues, emphysema, dental health and asthma.
Why it works
Because it is easy to do.
We need food, water and air to function.
Breathing not only supplies us with oxygen but is the quickest way the body can stabillise its biochemistry – the blood pH.
SMART Breathing assists you to maximize oxygenation utilising the Bohr Effect when you maintain your carbon dioxide at its optimal physiological levels.
Low tissue oxygenation from poor breathing habits means poorer function, low vitality, exacerbation of condition and more symptoms, i.e. compromised wellbeing.
