Breathe well and live well with COPD shows you that practising regular breathing helps you to develop healthy breathing patterns,
which can lessen the effects of breathing difficulties caused by COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease).
Brindley gives you a short, practical guide to using new therapeutic breathing exercises which focus on techniques to reduce breathlessness and control coughing to help you to get the most out of every breath.
The exercises are simple, easy to follow, and designed to work alongside usual medical care.
Breathe well and live well states that no special equipment is necessary, you can practise in your own home at your own pace, and this illustrated guide contains all the information you need to get started.
This book by Janet Bridley will be perfect for anyone with COPD who wants to help manage their breathing difficulties, coughing and fatigue with simple and effective techniques. Professionals working with COPD sufferers, such as physiotherapists, physical therapists and carers, will also find the book of interest.
Janet Brindley came across therapeutic breathing exercises in 1998. They dramatically improved her asthma and her son’s asthma. As a consequence she left her job as a hospital biochemist and taught yoga and Buteyko breathing techniques. She has since worked with doctors, physiotherapists and nurses to develop a professional training course. This training course was used as part of an MSc Respiratory Physiotherapy module at Coventry University.
