Reverse Cystic Fibrosis Symptoms/Stages with Buteyko Breath Retraining: Interview with Dr. Artour


It is possible to reverse cystic fibrosis symptoms and stages with breathing retraining and the Buteyko method by slowing down one’s automatic breathing and, thus, improving oxygen delivery in the lungs and body cells to prevent development of cystic fibrosis.

In this video, Dr. Artour Rakhimov and Volker Schmitz discuss the relation of cystic fibrosis and breathing retraining. Cystic fibrosis is viewed as being genetic, but people with this health condition are realizing that they can improve their quality and quantity of life if they apply lifestyle changes. Historically, it is known that life expectancy was very low for people with CF. Children would die at a very young age. People with CF have very salty skin because they are not able to retain the salt. Previously, this would indicate that children would die.

Recently doctors discovered that people with CF have a mutation in their body’s chemicals. This mutation does allow the body to effectively transport ions in different compartments of the body. People with CF have two common abnormalities that develop. Dr. Artour Rakhimov had students with CF. They were successfully able to recover from their health condition and maintained being healthy with breathing retraining. Breathing retraining increases body-oxygen levels. This allows people having abnormal genetic factors to function closer to the medical norm. This depends on how well people recover.

Two systems suffer the most for people with CF. They include the respiratory system because of the transport of ions. People with CF have their mucus grow and become too thick in their airways. From this, they are going to be prone to more respiratory infections. The most common cause of death for people with CF relates to respiratory failure. This is from accumulating too much bacteria that comes from the mucus harbouring pathological bacteria. Many respiratory infections take place for people with CF.

Another type of abnormality that takes place relates to digestion. It causes an inability to create a mucus layer in the digestive tract. People with CF have their mucus in the digestive tract become too thick. This causes an abnormal appearance of too much bacteria and infections in the digestive tract.

These abnormalities can be solved when people practice breathing retraining. It is used in addition to standard medical techniques. 50 years ago the common expectancy of living for people with CF was 10 to 15 years. While currently, it has improved to 40 to 45 years of age. It was a huge increase due to achievements of medicine. Doctors are now able to take out excess mucus from the lungs. They can provide medication for the lungs and the digestive system. For the digestion system doctors provide digestive enzymes. These enzymes allow people with CF to function better.
