    Hi William,

    I went on the net and looked it up. Watched a few youtube videos, and did the exercises .. which cleared my (constantly and infuriatingly) blocked nose almost immediately. So I think i'm going to learn more and give it a shot.

      I watched a video presentation about it by an Australian man, who made a very interesting point:

      He wondered why .. when Buteyko breathing techniques are proving so effective (98% successful in reducing the need for 'puffers' in the case of asthma sufferers according to clinical trials) .. is so little funding and exposure given to practictioners and exponents of this breathing method?  He pointed the finger at Big Pharma who make billions from the sale of drugs, and inhalers, and all the rest of the paraphanalia that those with respiratory problems need to get through the day. With most new research funding coming from those very same Pharmaceutical companies .. they're hardly going to do themselves out of business by showering money on a breathing method that might do away with the need for their own products, now are they?

      He has a point, doesn't he?
