" The theory of our discovery contains basically a problem of a
survival.

… I have claims to one thing: I have discovered the cause of the
most frequent illnesses. It is Deep Respiration. No one ever
spoke about it before. This is the gist of my discovery. Neither
the importance, nor influence of СО2 on organs, on systems,
nor the influence of СО2 on respiration, etc ".
(From the record of K.P.Buteyko’s speech at the 5-th All-Union
Seminar on Buteyko Method. Moscow, 1990)


Introduction

Fantastic events take place in the scientific world around the
Russian scientist - doctor K.P. Buteyko On the one hand, it is the
worldwide popularity of his technique of treatment on the basis of cor-
recting breathing, which has even received attention of governmental
bodies in Russia (1) and the Great Britain (2). On the other hand, the
absolute inattention to scientific fundamentals on which Buteyko ther-
apy is based is observed. The authors have not found any reference to
K.P. Buteyko's scientific works in the articles of independent experts.
As a result, the Buteyko therapy is distorted beyond recognition and the
scientists are compelled to start anew from the assumption that dysfunc-
tion of breathing is the cause of asthma and other diseases (3-5), i.e. to
come back to 53 years ago.
The reasons for this are as follows. The results of Dr. Buteyko’s
researches were far ahead compared with the level of medical science of
the mid-twentieth century. This might be a reason why they were not
understood. At the same time in the process of Dr. Buteyko’s therapy
the necessity to possess a high level of medical and general scientific
knowledge was not very obvious for a layperson or a patient. As a re-
sult, any ignoramus had a temptation to try himself or herself in the
treatment of others, involuntarily parasitizing on the fact that some pa-
tients could correct their breathing intuitively and regardless of incom-
petent recommendations of their “tutors.” Since 1998 K.P. Buteyko was
no longer involved in active work, having had a severe brain trauma,
and this was yet another reason why this situation went out of his con-
trol.
Due to this situation a large number of “clinics,” “schools” and
even “institutes” bearing his name have sprung up all over the world,
starting from Moscow and reaching as far as New Zealand and Austra-
Introduction 53
lia, in which Dr. Buteyko’s pseudo-students, pseudo-widow, pseudo-
friends, and other pseudo-followers are teaching new pseudo-Buteyko
practitioners from various walks of life, including plumbers and sales-
persons, in less than two weeks. Moreover, such “pseudo-followers”
were not able even to measure properly the Control Pause and made no
effort to read properly his Foreword to books (6-8), having circulation
up to 110000, where K.P. Buteyko has clearly explained that “the only
scientifically substantiated principle in prevention and treatment of
“modern” diseases is the reduction of ventilation in the process of
breathing in order to normalise its physiological function”.
At the same time his pseudo-followers have published a large
number of incompetent publications with pseudo-instructions and
pseudo-substantiations. Their materials were based on the public lec-
tures of Dr. Buteyko "for those who have no knowledge of medicine and
physics " (K.P. Buteyko). These materials also testify to the misunder-
standing of the difference between Buteyko therapy and other directions
in K.P..Buteyko's researches, in particular, his researches of the role of
CO2 in organism, of the influence of pulmonary ventilation on the in-
tensity of symptoms, etc.
From this point of view, it is extremely timely to acquaint the
researchers, physicians and practitioners with K.P. Buteyko's true scien-
tific theory (9-11) and its application - Buteyko therapy (Buteyko
Method, Buteyko Breathing Technique). The authors believe that publi-
cation of genuine theory will also help medical clinicians to overcome
additional difficulties when working with the patients after the “experi-
ments” of incompetent pseudo-Buteyko practitioners in those cases,
when the patient’s and practitioner's intuition has proven to be ineffec-
tive. Besides, the theory allows one to stop exploiting such arguments as
"K.P. Buteуko said... ", etc.
The authors recognize that difficulties of translation can lead to
certain misunderstandings, therefore they present both the Russian and
English versions of the theory.
I. The basic definitions and terms

The standard definitions and terms will be used in the work,
unless the situations of either inaccurate or wrong interpretation or mis-
understandings of the theory of K.P. Buteyko are possible. Now, we
shall list specifically defined terms.
1. The mechanism of regulation and restoration (MRR) of
any function is surveyed as a single whole, a set of the biochemical,
biophysical, nervous and subconscious processes providing the man-
agement by the given function, and also its restoration and the restora-
tion of anything else after damages.
2. Disease is a disorder of one or several mechanisms of
regulation and restoration of a function of an organism. This defini-
tion corresponds to K.P. Buteyko's point of view (12) and to the both of
N.M. Amosov's and F. Hoff's definitions (13).
3. Disease of Deep Respiration is a disorder of the MRR of
such function, as breathing.
4. Hyperventilation is only one of the symptoms of the disease
of Deep Respiration, to which any definition from (14, 15) can be ap-
plied. From the comparison of the third and fourth definitions it follows
that the use of the term "hyperventilating syndrome" instead of the term
"disease of Deep Respiration" is similar to the use of the term "tempera-
ture syndrome" instead of the term "infectious disease".
5. The importance of this or that function or the MRR is de-
termined as follows. For a function - the more important a function, the
stronger is the effect of its influence on health. For a mechanism - a
correct work of a more important mechanism can lead to full or partial
restoration of correctness of work of a less important mechanism. Cor-
recting the work of a less important mechanism does not provide resto-
ration of correctness of work of a more important mechanism.
6. Comfort is a complex of conditions of the vital activity pro-
viding maximisation of the amount and degree of pleasant feelings,
pleasures and minimization of the amount and degree of unpleasant feel-
ings, displeasures.
7. Civilisation is a combination of a level of development of
productive forces and rules of the organisation of the society providing
many of its members with plenty of food, sleep, heating, medicines, at
the same time limiting physical activity. All this is aimed in its devel-
I. The basic definitions and terms 55
opment at the increase of consumption with the purpose of achieving the
maximal comfort.
8. Accuracy sufficient for practice applications. Under the
emphasised term, we shall understand that if the restrictions introduced
into the theory are observed, then all its conclusions should prove to be
true no less often, than in nine cases out of ten. Regarding numerical
values of a control pause, this is plus-minus one second. Regarding the
pulse, this is plus-minus two to three beatings a minute.
9. Civilization-induced illness is symptoms or syndromes (set
of symptoms) falling under a subject domain of Buteyko theory.
10. The morals are a property of human consciousness follow-
ing from its system of values, which determines decision-making and
the acts affecting the interests of other people.
11. The quantitative measure of morals. An act or a decision
should be considered more moral, if it corresponds (or at least does not
contradict) to the interests of a greater number of people in a greater
interval of time.
II. The scope of the theory (the subject domain)

Some propositions of the theory can be applied to any area of
medicine. However, most fully and with accuracy sufficient for appli-
cations, the theory should describe changes of the limited set of states
and reactions of a person. The basic restrictions follow from the follow-
ing assumptions:
1. The person is in the conditions of the modern civilisation, i.e.
there are no external restrictions in nutrition, rest, pleasures, etc.
2. The person is not in an unconscious state permanently.
3. Genetic disorders in an organism are not taken into consid-
eration.
4. In an organism there is a certain quantity of reserve forces
and energy necessary for performing the functions of exchange with
environment and providing the work of consciousnesses and MRRs.
5. Irreversible disorders of the MRRs, as well as of the basic
functions and organs of a person, for example, due to traumas, geron-
tological changes, etc. are not taken into consideration.
6. Infections are not taken into consideration.
As a result, the fundamentals of Buteyko theory do not lay claim
to an accurate enough and full description of the basic changes in an
organism under the following processes and types of pathologies:
1. Infectious diseases.
2. The hereditary diseases caused by genetically caused disor-
ders of the MRRs. But the presence of "genetic predisposition" does not
limit the application of the Buteyko theory.
3. Serious forms of mental disorders.
4. Traumatic disorders.
5. Extreme states (narcotics, poisonings, burns, radiation, etc.)
6. Person's states on the verge of life and death (reanimation).
7. The gerontological disorders caused by the processes of age-
ing.
8. Disorders in the work of consciousness, unconscious states.
9. Cancer.
10. The processes in an organism directly caused by the func-
tion of procreation.
However, it is necessary to bear in mind that the application of
the Buteyko theory and therapy in the listed areas often allows one to
sharply increase the efficiency of the medical aid, due to the creation of
II. The scope of the theory (the subject domain) 57
the general favourable background.
The listed restrictions disclose the formal definition of "civiliza-
tion-induced illness" given above. These are only dozens of the illnesses
from the general list of many thousands of the illnesses known in medi-
cine. For example, these are rhinitises, bronchitis, asthma, allergy, car-
diovascular diseases, neurosises, etc.
III. Main principles (postulates)

The following axioms are accepted without proofs.
1. A person represents an indissoluble unity of physiological
processes and consciousnesses (16, 17). These two components are con-
sidered as mutually influencing factors of the same order.
2. It is impossible to help an organism to cure a disease without
