Breathless Sleep…no more is more than a memoir.
It recounts Paul’s personal struggle over many years with severe obstructive sleep apnoea. Paul’s story takes the reader down a path of anticipation, hope, despair, resolution and then new hope and symptom resolution. Paul recounts his experience with referenced facts giving credibility to his writing and the benefits of breathing retraining.
The reader joins Paul in his exploration of how and why his health improved. The reader is given a clear and concise introduction to the relevant science of this prevalent sleep disorder.
The book takes the reader into the world of a desperate sleep deprived lawyer who did not tolerate CPAP and who undertook a Buteyko breathing course because he was drawn to a natural treatment.
Paul becomes his own case study of his successful control of severe obstructive sleep apnoea. The book includes comparative photographs and before and after sleep studies detailing the degree of apnoea and the impact this was having on his body and the improvement following the completion of the course.
The reader gains a clear insight into the missing pieces from the jigsaw of his respiratory health.
In this 2nd updated edition Paul recounts his frenectomy (tongue tie release) and how it enhanced and further improved his sleep. There is also additional content on Nitric Oxide and the critical role it plays, as the third gas, in our respiratory cycle.
Paul is certified as a Buteyko practitioner with two leading world organisations The Buteyko Institute of Breathing and Health and Buteyko Clinic International.
