Reverting Nasal Polyps

with a Buteyko Breathing Course

What are nasal polyps?

Nasal polyps are a usually nonmalignant growth or tumor protruding from the mucous lining of the nose, causing obstruction. Nasal polyps are soft, painless growths that hang down like teardrops or grapes.

Cause of nasal polyps

Considering Buteyko theory, nasal polyps can occur when:

  1. You generally already overbreathe throughout the day.
  2. Your body attempts to limit overbreathing by restricting your airways.
  3. The body starts growing nasal polyps in an attempt to restrict nasal breathing.

Overbreathing is generally a bad habit, and depending on your genetics, your body may grow nasal polyps as a natural defense mechanism against overbreathing. It's trying to limit your breathing because it know you are breathing too much.

Revert nasal polyps with a Buteyko Breathing course

Reverting polyps is a slow process over several months, first aiming to stop further growth and later to start shrinking. Good results can be attained in over 2 to 4 months. Results are dependent on:

  • Severity of symptoms
  • Students' compliance to instructions and guidance
  • Students' level of practice (basic, intermediate or advanced)
  • Frequency of sessions for additional guidance
  • Other factors (for example: age, general state of health, other diseases and activities.)

Doing both modules of our Buteyko Breathing course, and keeping in touch with us over the course of your practice, students can experience good results after 2 to 4 months of advanced Buteyko practice. As students make progress, they can start to experience gradual shrinkage of nasal polyps after several months of advanced practice.
