Migliora il tuo acquisto
The secret to your health, fitness and overall wellbeing lies in the most basic and overlooked aspect of your workout: how you breathe. Developing body strength while ignoring breathing strength is counterproductive.
In The Oxygen Advantage, Patrick McKeown combines his successful breathing exercises with techniques designed to simulate high-altitude training in a highly successful programme that will significantly improve anyone's health but will also empower athletes to improve their sports performance. These scientifically validated exercises have the potential to drastically improve your overall fitness, whether you are a habitual couch potato or an Ironman triathlon champion.
These easy-to-use techniques can help to reduce your breathlessness, improve your sleep as well as reduce anxiety and stress. Drawing on his own experiences as an ex-asthmatic and the work he has done to help athletes and asthma sufferers alike to achieve greater fitness, Patrick shows you the key to a healthier, fitter you.
The Oxygen Advantage, which is an extension of Patrick McKeown's work as a Buteyko coach, is one strategy that I believe should be included in your health habit arsenal . . . I use it personally and would strongly encourage you to apply it to your life so you can reap the rewards. -- Dr Joseph Mercola
An interesting book that proves the way we breathe has the potential to transform our bodies, health and sport performance. By combining successful Buteyko breathing exercises with techniques designed to simulate high altitude training and drawing on his own experiences as an ex-asthmatic, McKeown has created a highly successful, scientifically validated programme that can significantly improve anyone's health. ― Yoga Magazine

I've been experiencing symptoms of asthma for several months ( wheeze, chest tightness, hyperventilation, anxiety and panicky feeling related to it). I've probably tried it all: Identifying mucous forming foods and eliminating them, cleaning my apartment like crazy ( I have dust mites allergy), trying all sorts of supplements, trying various herbs ( licorice, ashwaganda, bromine...etc) eating oranges, grapefruits, promenade like there was no tomorrow, avoiding dairy....no change ever. The only thing that helped was high intensity exercise but that caused asthma attack on its own from time to time.
I heard about Patrick's book on a self development forum and decided to give it a go being very sceptical. I read through it slowly and have been implementing various breathing exercises during my lunch-breaks, walks or simply with timer at home.
The results: I am definitely feeling improvements. My chest tightness is nearly gone. My wheezing has dropped to 10% of what it was (considering I've only been implementing it for few weeks). I am positive that by continuing the regime, I will overcome this nasty condition that medical industry labels as "incurable."
Look no further, this is what you've been waiting for. The cost of this book is a cost of single freakin' inhaler. I cannot recommend this book enough.
Other than the practical benefits, I have also learned a lot about why breathing correctly is important for my health, so this book was definitely a good investment.
Well, the principle is nice but as many have said, way too long and repetitive book. Actually, I had issues reading it, there are litteraly copy-pasting within the book to make it longer from the book itself.
The book is based on one principle, and one way of applying it and you decline it in every way possible. It is not a bad thing in itself, the price is okay (learning how to breathe properlyy is invaluable) but still, way too long.
Great content, but horrible presentation to sum it up.
Since as far back as I can remember, I could never really breath through my nose. I never really thought anything of it until my sleep really started to suffer. Then I found nasal sprays and felt what it's like to breath fully through my nose again.
However after over ~9 months using the spray I knew it couldn't be good long term so I went to the doctor and showed her that I had a deviated septum (caused by breathing through the mouth as a child who has asthma) and that the only way I believed I was going to fix my nasal congestion was to get surgery.
It was a year waiting list just to get a consultation with a specialist, I found this book in Aug 2019, I got a consultation date late in 2019. By end of September, I cancelled the appointment.
It's hard to put into words how much of a relief it is to breath like i do now. My sleep has improved ten fold and I haven't once needed my inhalers since I have been doing the exercises in the book.
I feel sorry for the people out there who don't even know this answer exists to the problem they are facing and go the route i nearly went by getting surgery, only to find it wouldn't have fixed anything.
Thank You Patrick, your understanding of this has, without doubt, improved my quality of life.
I have to say though there is no silver bullet with asthma and you need to do the exercises daily. They are quick, simple and I do them straight after my breakfast. It quickly becomes part of your routine and is a small price to pay to remove your reliance on inhalers and other medication. You will quickly start to see improvements and feel better.
Thank you Patrick (and of course the late, great Dr Buteyko!)
