Jac Vidgen has been working with Buteyko's method since 1993.  He was trained by a leading protege of Dr. Buteyko, Alexander Stalmatski (who wrote "Freedom from Asthma" and was featured in the BBC TV documentary about the method). Jac introduced the method to Asia, and now works regularly around the Asian region - particularly in Hong Kong, Philippines and Thailand. His work was featured on CNN in September 1999, and in March 2004 on Star World's Focus Asia.

Testimonials for Jac Vidgen

Buteyko Breathing Asia

"I got a tremendous amount out of the sessions.  Apart from the tangible benefits of reducing ventolin intake, better sleep and an improved sense of well being, I came away with something much more valuable.  This is a sense of being back in control, and not being on an inevitable downhill slide to inactivity and difficulty  living in 20 years or so. 

As someone who has suffered from asthma since he was seven and basically seen everyone about it, and been in hospital 4 times with serious attacks, Buteyko is the only thing that has made sense intuitively, and offered a hope of medication reduction."

"Prior to learning the Buteyko Method, I had been suffering from hideous sinus allergy attacks for several years. The doctors kept giving me progressively stronger types of anti-histamines which I took on a regular basis.


After only a couple of days of doing Buteyko, my sinus allergies were gone and my medicine intake was completely eliminated.  I couldn't believe it and the same went for the asthmatic doctors (not the asthma doctors, the ASTHMATIC doctors) who were also learning to do Buteyko! They had dramatically improved their conditions as well.

I now have a lower pulse rate, need less sleep and am in generally better health."

"snoring has decreased if not ceased. I am better at breathing - especially when I go to the gym for aerobic exercise.

All the benefits in  my health like no asthma attacks for over a year, I attribute to the Buteyko Method. I've also lost much weight since the Buteyko workshop."

"Before practicing Buteyko I was taking my ventolin to a dance class.  Three months after I started practicing, I climbed a mountain to 12,000 feet above sea level without any medication whatsoever."

"I am very happy to report that I have been free of asthma/ colds and flu for the first time in my life here at my mother's home in Birmingham. Besides Buteyko I am taking a low dose of Flixotide - very different from numerous puffs of Bricanyl every day!"

JL, Hong Kong  2000

"I don't hyperventilate as much anymore. On the few occasions that I do, I just do the exercises. I always feel much better afterwards. I rarely get headaches now and my overall well-being is so much better.

With my friend,N., the change has been really dramatic! She's very, very happy she took your workshop. After we wrote you regarding her cough and bout with the flu, she took your advice. She soon recovered completely and up to now, she hasn't had a real asthma attack (just slight tightening of the chest which easily goes away with the exercises) and has never resorted to the use of Ventolin. She does the exercise in the mornings in the car on the way to work. She's now taking Flixotide only occasionally, maybe just one puff once a week (only when she feels some chest constriction upon waking).

Also, N.'s constipation is completely gone, plus she no longer experiences dysmenorrhea with her monthly periods. And the best news is that several people have commented that her skin now looks so smooth and clear! Bet if you advertised this benefit, you'd get more women to take the Buteyko workshop!"

I want you to know that I have lost 35 lbs since I joined your Buteyko class last October. As of now, I am still doing some of the exercises. I have also not experienced any asthma attacks since doing Buteyko.

I am really pleased with the way my  12 y.o.daughter has naturally taken to Buteyko.  I guess children have less skepticism so they can fully benefit from Buteyko . . . and they easily follow what is best for them. She has become more aware of what helps and what does not help her in terms of her health.  Her asthma and migraine attacks have not bothered her for over a year now - ever since the workshop. Her swimming perfomance has also improved.  In fact, for this year, the coach nominated her for the "Most Improved Swimmer" award, as her times have dramatically improved and her commitment to training has been most evident.  She is also showing a lot more strength in Taekwondo.
I am now about 6.5 months pregnant - this baby is surely a "beneficiary" of Buteyko as I am able to breathe less now.  Since I am unable to take medications whenever I have a cough or cold, doing the Buteyko exercises and just doing the correct way of breathing relieves me in the process.

I will be delighted to continue inviting my friends to benefit from your workshops.

I have not used my ventolin since the first day of our workshop a month ago. Also, I'm no longer experiencing any of the usual shortness of breath, general fatigue, tinnitus, numbness in my left arm and leg, heartburn, hyperacidity, constipation and frequent urination. I now weigh 216 lbs. down from 230 lbs. I am doing a lot of indoor exercises with my fitness equipment for the past two weeks now. I had not used this equipment since 1997 because of my health predicament. I wish to thank you again for your sincere concern for helping us to overcome our various illnessess and for our unnecessary dependency on expensive medecines. As for me, I'm very happy to be able to perform intense indoor physical exercises again because of Buteyko's method.

"I am no longer taking steroids or any sort of asthma medications...and I feel great. No asthma or angina episodes of any sort for almost 2 months. My BP is average 145/85 - down from 160/95. My pulse rate is 80-90 - down from 105-110.
My cardiologist/internist is very pleased with my progress and sees it having a "domino effect" as far as healing my body is concerned. He is monitoring my blood pressure closely, and if it continues on it's downward swing, he will also reduce the BP medication. I have been off digestive medication for over a month now, and have not suffered one hyperacidity attack. I've lost 10lbs. in weight already."
