Over the past eleven years Patrick McKeown has witnessed thousands of people significantly reduce their asthma symptoms and improve their health by incorporating simple and medically-proven principals espoused by AsthmaCare courses.
As a child and teenager Patrick McKeown visited numerous doctors and specialists in the search for the root cause of his asthma. Year after year, his medication steadily increased with no signs of an end to his symptoms. In comparison to other children his age, simply walking to school with a bag on his back was an effort which often resulted in a bout of wheezing.
It was in 1997 after graduating from Trinity College in Dublin that Patrick accidently happened across an article in The Irish Independent about the work of the Russian doctor Konstantin Buteyko. After applying the principals of Dr Buteyko’s methods, his asthma symptoms reduced significantly, allowing far better control over his breathing with absolutely no need for medication.
Not only that, but when Patrick learned how to unblock his nose, switch to nasal breathing and calm his breathing volume towards normal levels, every facet of his health improved. Patrick's stress levels decreased substantially, his energy and sleep improved, and he felt like an entirely different person. Patrick is now 42 years of age and his concentration, breathing, sleep, fitness and health are substantially superior to when he was 16.
After receiving accreditation from the late Dr Buteyko in 2002, Patrick has spent the last 13 years reaching out to tens of thousands of children and adults who suffer unnecessarily due to the asthmatic symptoms of wheezing and coughing. To date, he has written seven books on the subject, including Amazon.com bestsellers Close Your Mouth, Anxiety Free: Stop Worrying and Quieten Your Mind, and Asthma Free Naturally. His latest book; The Oxygen Advantage enables athletes to improve oxygen carrying capacity and sports performance.
In addition to running workshops throughout his native Ireland, each year he is invited to talk in North America, Europe and Australia.
In addition to numerous radio and TV interviews, Patrick was recently interviewed by Dr Joseph Mercola, founder of the world's largest health website:
