Asthma, Rhinitis, Hay Fever

Asthma is a chronic inflammatory  condition of the airways More than 5 million people in the UK have asthma, making it the most common long-term disease affecting all age groups.. Suffers habitually breathe more air than a non asthmatic.  With overbreathing  predominalty through the mouth the airways are cooled and dehydrated.  Symptoms such as wheezing, coughing, chest tightness, and shortness of breath occur.

Ensuring nasal breathing patterns and bringing breathing volumes towards normal levels can result in reduction asthma symptoms

Rhinitis  this is irritation and inflammation of the mucous membrane inside the nose.  Due to the excess production of mucus symptoms can  include runny, stuffy nose or post nasal drip,

Hay fever/Allergic rhinitis can coincide with symptoms outside the nose such as fatigue and malaise. The inflammation is thought to be due to the release of histamine and other chemicals as a result of the degranulation of mast cells in the nose.

it is widely accepted that these symptoms are caused by viruses, bacteria, irritants or allergens.

MyoDynamics follows the belief put forward by the late Russian Dr Konstantin Buteyko.  He considered that any excess breathing (over breathing) to metabolic requirements causes nasal congestion. The body is comprised of a system of tubes and depletion of carbon dioxide, caused by over breathing,  within this system is thought to trigger a response to hold onto the carbon dioxide by restricting how it is lost, the airway.
