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.

The Buteyko theory about a key role of breathing for human health

The Buteyko theory about a key role of breathing for human health by Vladimir K. Buteyko and Marina M. Buteyko

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). The way of a quantitative estimation of the general state of human health is deduced. Interdependence between health and morals is theoretically proven for the first time. The theorem on the role of biochemical processes is formulated and proven. Key practical elements are added. Some reasons for distribution of incorrect information about the Buteyko technique and for incompetence of the majority of the persons naming themselves Buteyko’s followers are shown.
Qualified application of the theory is capable of providing progress in the true convalescence for more than ninety percent of patients with asthma, allergy, cardiovascular deseases, etc. earlier considered incurable. This book is used as one of educational guides during the training of new practitioners at the Voronezh Buteyko Center.

Buteyko Patents and Trademarks

Buteyko Patents and Trademarks by Vladimir K. Buteyko

Buteyko Patents and Trademarks: How to stand up to threats from “rights holders” an Open Letter from Vladimir K. Buteyko. 
SUMMARY: The Buteyko method is a set of principles and rules for breathing normalisation that can be adapted to the needs of individual patients. As such it is difficult to protect by patent. Moreover, descriptions of the methods have been widely available in accessible books etc prior to the date of any patent. 
The Buteyko trademark, at least in some countries, covers only medical treatment, whereas training (which is what practitioners do) is not covered. Any practitioner with a company name or internet domain name incorporating the Buteyko name, prior to 2004 is likely to have priority rights. Moreover, the trademark applies to the word “BUTEYKO” for a designation of service. “If the practitioner refers instead to author for example: “the method by Buteyko” or ” the Buteyko’s method “, etc, the trademark’s threats should not apply.” (See below for more detail)
