Free excerpts from Volume 1

Combine-complexator
The patient lay on a special couch and was hooked up to a variety of sensors that Buteyko said provided information inconceivable in any other clinic in the world. The complexator could simultaneously provide data on up to forty indicators of the patient's condition at that moment...

Combine-complexator

Buteyko’s diagnosis
"...They opened up the chest of the poor patient, who was thin as a rake and barely alive in any case. Pomekhin inserted his finger into the incision, felt the posterior commissure and, now realising that Buteyko’s diagnosis was correct, brusquely ordered his assistants, “Sew him up!”"
Chapter 2 

Carbon dioxide
“I use carbon dioxide instead of the scalpel,” said Buteyko, with quiet conviction."
Chapter 2

Without surgery
"She had said: "Lovey" and cautiously gripped the wide lapels of his striped pyjamas. "You shouldn't go up to the third floor," she had said, pulling his shrivelled hand to her heart. "Go to Buteyko. He'll make you well without surgery."
Chapter 12

Documentary film director
"By bush telegraph, a well known documentary film director from Novosibirsk had got to hear about Dr Buteyko's miraculous Method and begged him, for the love of God, to come and treat his friend Gennady Khodakevich, another film director who was in hospital and awaiting final sentence from Professor Pomekhin. Khodakevich had survived two heart attacks by the age of 49 and even Pomekhin's reputation as an omnipotent surgeon -carefully inflated by his acolytes - did not blind him to reality. Death seemed inevitable."
Chapter 13

Basic medical research
"The theoreticans assured the government that Pomekhin was blinded by blood and surgery (at which he undoubtedly outshone most other practitioners); that he was indiscriminating and had forgotton about real science. He was chasing after momentary, short-term results, right there on the operating table in front of him, and paid no heed to basic medical research." 
Chapter 14

Sports therapy
"It was at this difficult time,that he chanced to meet a doctor of sports therapy whom, after long conversation, he invited to swell the laboratory's depleted ranks. Natalya Voronova knew about Df Buteyko's work from articles the Institute of Experimental Medicine had published - and his idea that hyperventilation provokes bronchial spasm in asthmatics had shaken her to the core."
Chapter 15

Relaxing the diaphragm
"We overcome an asthmatic attack, and all the symptoms of asthma, not by holding our breath, but by reducing the depth of it through relaxing the diaphragm!"
Chapter 16

Normalisation of breathing
‘…Normalisation of breathing immediately triggers a healing process..."
Chapter 17

Cleansing reactions
Such recurrences are part of the healing process. That’s what we said - but actually there’s no hard and fast rule about it. In the Lab - as you can testify - we’ve seen cases where cleansing reactions have started just a few hours after breath training gets underway.
Chapter 19

Buteyko basic principle
' "Breathing and breathing only! First and foremost, volitional reduction of depth of breathing! Plenty of time later for porridge and suchlike..." That was the Doctor's basic principle.'
Chapter 20

Full-blown asthma attack
" 'Listening to the painfully laboured breathing of Stepan Chugunov (full member of the Academy of Sciences), Natalya Voronova (Buteyko-ite with some knowledge of asthma) realised with horror that he was having a full-blown asthma attack. The country’s leading light in the field of broncho-pulmonary disease! How could he cure anyone when any minute he might die of asthma himself?"
Chapter 21

Did not involve medication
However, when Natalya once more stressed that the Method developed by Dr Buteyko and his colleagues at the Laboratory did not involve medication, the atmosphere in the wintry semi-gloom of the office became very quiet indeed. The silence was broken only by a sudden trickling noise made as a drip from the tap fell into the wash basin.
Chapter 23

Night time Asthma Attacks
“I did explain to you,” began Natalya. “If you want to get better, you have to forget about getting eight hours sleep for the next month! If you’re getting an attack at three in the morning, you need to get up at two, put your feet on the floor, get into position and start doing the exercises. Then you’ll be fine. The attack will go.
chapter 24

Dr. Buteyko recommended working with groups ideally of...
Generally speaking, Buteyko recommended working with groups ideally of no more than 15 people. Practical experience at the Laboratory showed that as a rule this was the optimum size for the training sessions and produced the best results. However, ideals always remained ideals, alas, and harsh reality dictated its own terms. The influx of patients to the tiny Laboratory was so great compared to their limited capacity that groups of 10 to 15 people was often something they...
Chapter 25

Stop severe attacks in minutes
Then, at Dr Buteyko’s Laboratory, she saw the Doctor perform miracles. He managed to stop severe attacks in minutes without using any tablets or injections. Wilma couldn’t believe her eyes when the patient whom she had seen carried in on a stretcher fell on her knees and started kissing the embarrassed doctor’s hands as he tried to raise her to her feet. This woman, who had been awarded the title of ‘Hero-Mother’ for having at least ten children, would have prostrated herself at her benefactor’s feet and touched her head to the floor, such was her gratitude. For 25 years she had tried every type of medical treatment imaginable (even the most barbaric, such as bronchoscopy).
Chapter 30

The Armed Forces
I want to heal people and save them from death, not to see them killed because pilots flying at high altitudes and sailors on submarines have been trained to breathe less. Yes! They would be ideal soldiers for low-oxygen conditions. But I want people to be super-healthy, not super-killers. Medicine should be given to the sick, and not to those that make our species sick.”
Chapter 31
