Patrick McKeown on Airway First Podcast

My guest today is Patrick McKeown --- creator, CEO, and Director of Education and Training at Oxygen Advantage®, Director of Education and Training at Buteyko Clinic International, and President of Buteyko Professionals International. He is a leading international expert on breathing and sleep, and the author of bestselling books including The Oxygen Advantage. His focus is to empower more people every day to breathe better, feel better and achieve their potential.


Patrick was educated at Trinity College, Dublin, and later studied in the Moscow clinic of the founder of the Buteyko Breathing Method; the late Professor Konstantin Buteyko. He was honored to be awarded a Diploma in the Buteyko Method by Professor Buteyko.

Patrick’s current professional affiliations include being a Fellow of the Royal Society of Biology (UK), a Member of the Physiological Society (UK), a Member of the Academy of Applied Myofunctional Sciences, a Fellow of Buteyko Professionals International, and a Fellow of the International Academy of Breathing & Health.


From a very young age, Patrick suffered from asthma and relied on an array of medicines and inhalers until he discovered the Buteyko Method at the age of 26. This life-changing discovery motivated him to change his career in order to help children and adults who suffered from similar breathing problems. Following his time in Russia in 2002, Patrick has been teaching the Buteyko Method in Australia, USA, and throughout Europe.


He has penned seven books, including three Amazon.com best sellers, and has been invited to speak at dental and respiratory conferences throughout the world. In collaboration with the University of Limerick & Limerick University Hospital in Ireland, Patrick was the Buteyko method instructor in a clinical study investigating the Buteyko Method as a treatment for individuals who had a diagnosis of asthma and chronic rhinosinusitis.

Show Notes:

SPOTLIGHT BOOK RESOURCE FOR PARENTS


A simple yet revolutionary approach to improving your body's oxygen use and increasing your health, weight loss, and sports performance - whether you're a recovering couch potato or an Ironman triathlon champion. With a foreword by New York Times best-selling author Dr. Joseph Mercola.


Achieve more with less effort: The secret to weight loss, fitness, and wellness lies in the most basic and most overlooked function of your body - how you breathe. One of the biggest obstacles to better health and fitness is a rarely identified problem: chronic overbreathing. We often take many more breaths than we need without realizing it, contributing to poor health and fitness, including a host of disorders, from anxiety and asthma to insomnia and heart problems.


In The Oxygen Advantage, the man who has trained over 5,000 people - including Olympic and professional athletes - in reduced breathing exercises now shares his scientifically validated techniques to help you breathe more efficiently. Patrick McKeown teaches you the fundamental relationship between oxygen and the body then gets you started with a body oxygen level test (BOLT) to determine how efficiently your body uses oxygen. He then shows you how to increase your BOLT score by using light breathing exercises and learning how to simulate high-altitude training, a technique used by Navy SEALs and professional athletes to help increase endurance, weight loss, and vital red blood cells to dramatically improve cardio fitness.


Following his program, even the most out-of-shape person (including those with chronic respiratory conditions such as asthma) can climb stairs, run for a bus, or play soccer without gasping for air, and everyone can achieve:


  • Easy weight loss and weight maintenance

  • Improved sleep and energy

  • Increased concentration

  • Reduced breathlessness during exercise

  • Heightened athletic performance

  • Improved cardiovascular health

  • Elimination of asthmatic symptoms

  • And more


With The Oxygen Advantage, you can look better, feel better, and do more - it's as easy as breathing.
