Close Your Mouth: Buteyko Clinic Handbook for Perfect Health


Close Your Mouth is a self-help book containing complete instructions to apply the Buteyko Method for asthma, coughing, wheezing, breathing problems and nasal congestion.

The Buteyko Method can be learned by children and adults alike. It is supported by twenty clinical trials. Trial results within twelve weeks included:
✔ 70% less coughing and wheezing
✔ 90% less need for reliever (rescue) medication and
✔ 50% less need for preventer medication

The author, Patrick McKeown, is one of a few persons directly accredited by the late Professor Buteyko to teach his method to others. In 2002, Patrick founded the renowned Buteyko Clinic International to enable children and adults worldwide to improve their asthma control and significantly reduce their need for asthma medication. The Buteyko Method empowers children and adults by re-educating their breathing in order to manage and significantly reduce their asthma for the rest of their lives. Close Your Mouth is the Buteyko Clinic Instruction manual given to each attendee of Patrick’s clinics. It is written in a simple style that can easily be understood and applied daily. Since its publication Close Your Mouth is in the top 10 best-selling self help books for asthma on Amazon.

‘It absolutely is unbelievable. I have been on my drugs for fifteen years and to think that something as simple as this and as cheap as this and effective could be widely available. Everybody should be doing it. Give it a go, you have nothing to lose and everything to gain.’
Jean McConnell – school teacher with asthma.
The Buteyko Method has been described as one of the most important medical discoveries of the 20th century. You will find the information in this book compelling and life changing.
