Felt great last night.. Found breathing much easier. Felt calm and peaceful at least a bit more than normal. Slept great.. woke up completely parched.. both nasal and mouth….very unusual. I wonder if my breathing was enhanced and my body hasn’t caught up or my need for water may be increased??? I did another session this morning with the chest band and felt another significant change in ease of breathing.. my meditation following was AWESOME!!!! I am very impressed and excited!!!!
From mike. The desert air is probably the source of the dryness plus you are breathing deeper and more dry air is more dry breathing.SHEICON
I am a 74 year old MD Ear Nose Throat specialist who developed adult onset asthma and “non reversible” airway disease. I could not get any real help except inhalers. I came across Breathing.Com from Stephen Sinatra’s Newsletter. I ordered the 176 program and have had tremendous improvement. I do not get winded doing simple tasks. I also agree with Mike regarding the raw food diet and drinking a lot of water. I believe that chronic dehydration is another key to aging and in my case lung disease. I plan to take the breathing school this year and become involved in helping people help themselves. Keep up the good work Mike. Randall Langston MD
From Mike: He arrived at our office with 1.5 liters of breathing volume as measured on the Voldyne 5000 and left with 2.5 liters. Proper breathing is the first step in wellness but is often overlooked.MD Ear Nose Throat specialist

Breath is life, but for the flutist breath is also art. Working with Mike freed tensions that had built up through years of playing so I was able to recover my full capacity, control and ease of expression. I recommend him highly to anyone who wants to maximize his or her breathing capability.Leslie Newman, Toronto Symphony Orchestra
I have struggled most of my life with breathing and neurological problems. This winter my breathing became very problematic, so I decided to meet with you. Your multi-focus approach was very helpful. It allowed me to experience in a kinesthetic way how my lungs, circulation, pain and energy could respond very differently. It restored my hope that change is possible.
When I left your office, I could move, breathe, and relax without such a hard effort. The flow was very enlivening. It will take me a while to sort out all the information I received, but for now, I have an experience of optimal breathing work guiding me on a new path.
Thank you for all of your time, effort, and teaching.Merlina P. MFCC
I somehow knew that stress and breathing were related. Being in the medical field, there is a lot of stress and exam taking that you have to go through. I noticed that I had become a shallow breather a good part of the time probably as a compensation for stress.
I found out about Mike White from another doctor friend of mine. I got product number 176 and started doing the exercises and realized how out of shape I was and how I took breathing for granted.
After some experience on my own and some excellent conversations with Mike’s staff, I decided to fly down and for a 3 day stay to have Mike work on me and fine tune what I realized was very important work.
I made the right decision.
Mike helped me to understand and make use of other techniques on program #176 so that I could go home and help to strengthen my lungs over time specifically the techniques used to strengthen the diaphragm, lungs and the Diaphragm Strengthener itself.
Lastly, Mike has state of the art computerized programs that deal with the rate and rhythm of breathing which documents breathing against the norm in real time.
I am very grateful that Mr. White has made breathing his specialty for over 3 decades. He has helped me to breathe better and more fully.

Learning to breathe under the guidance of Mike White has not only saved my life but profoundly altered its quality.
In the first training session, Mike address my restricted breathing, which was steadily becoming worse, despite the inhalers I was using three and four times a day. He taught me the Optimal Leg Lift, a deceptively simple and powerfully effective breath which stopped within days my chronic coughing, and began to clear and relieve lungs and bronchial tubes desperate for air.
He also used carefully controlled hand pressure and other techniques to “wring out and soften hard and atrophies lung tissue. This “re-birthing” of my lungs has affected my entire being. The relief from asthma turned out to be only an introduction into fuller and more vibrant participation in life. In the process of learning to breathe more deeply and easily, old fears and insecurities are beginning to dissolve. I am discovering the joyful calm that supports life at its base.
I believe Michael Grant White’s work with the breath is a critically important contribution to an area of scientific research still in its infancy.Marie D.
Smokey Mountain Gypsy.
I have sang and played music for 35 years. I had no idea I was capable of singing with such strength, control, confidence and ease as I have been until after working with Mike for only 5 hours.
From Mike: In Berkeley I got to work with gospel, opera, jazz, blues and pop singers but over the past 6 years having until recently been so isolated near the Great Smokies as I was, it was not often I got to work with musicians. When I do it is always such a treat. It’s like working with a very unique and special musical instrument all by itself. You can listen to his “old” voice here. The new stronger, more clear, naturally expressive voice is being recorded and will appear soon. (10 years ago 2006)

Mike helped me via skype to understand how to connect breath with my body and emotions. I also learned how our emotions are tied directly to our breathing and by changing our breathing, we can change our state. I came into this session with the knowledge that I don’t breathe enough. Sitting at my desk I tend to hold my breath for long periods of time and breathe very shallowly. I can practice and grow with the simple exercises that Mike shared with me in our session for the rest of my life. During our session I felt moments of euphoria. I equate this to my body FINALLY receiving the nourishment of oxygen it needs to optimally function. I also found that even though before the session I meditated and was a little tired going in, I came out of the session alert and energized. The thought came to me – how many people sit at their computers holding their breath, breath shallow and as a consequence feel tense, tired, foggy and feel the need for stimulants like coffee to keep them going when being conscious about their breath has the power to keep them in a peak state?Paula Dietrict
Respiratory Therapy: Michael: I just had to send you my heart felt thanks. This is a life changing experience. I can’t believe that I have been teaching people to harm themselves for many years. You have got an evangelist in me. 25 years of Respiratory Therapy, expertise in breathing, and I don’t know the basics. Thank God I found you and dug deep to get my hands on your information. I trust that I just wouldn’t have been ready to receive it if I’d come to you any sooner. My goodness, what a humbling experience. I am honored to be your student.Carrie W.
I would like to thank you so much Mike. When I came to you I felt like I was on a verge of having a heart attack or losing mind. I drove 4 torturing hours, it was well worth the 4 hours drive. On my way home I had no panic attacks, which is amazing, I cannot drive in a car for 30 minutes without a panic attack and I drove 4 hours with none. I feel like you have given me part of my life that I thought was gone forever. These panic attacks have been a journey for me, but for once in my life I feel I am on the road to recovery. Thank you again,I will definitely be back .Ms. Nicole T. Atlanta, GA
