The Buteyko theory about a key role of breathing for human health: scientific introduction to the Buteyko therapy for experts.
The rigorous theory about the human health completely satisfying practically all gnoseological criteria, including the major ones: complete conformity to the facts and ability to predict, is presented for the first time in the history of medicine. It is shown how this theory has helped K.P. Buteyko to discover a new disease, to predict the laws of its change, to develop effective principles and methods of diagnostics, preventive maintenance and overcoming of this disease (the true Buteyko therapy).

Behaviour of Sick Animals and Humans
HART, B.L. Biological basis of the behaviour of sick animals. NEUROSCI BIOBEHAV REV 12(2) 123-137, 1988— The most commonly recognised behavioural patterns of animals and people at the onset of febrile infectious diseases are lethargy, depression, anorexia, and reduction in grooming. Findings from recent lines of research are reviewed to formulate the perspective that the behaviour of sick animals and people is not a maladaptive response or the effect of debilitation, but rather an organised, evolved behavioural strategy to facilitate the role of fever in combating viral and bacterial infections. The sick individual is viewed as being at a life or death juncture and its behaviour is an all-out effort to overcome the disease.
