Anybody tried own one of these gadgets? Are they effective? What for? I know that they are all the rave amongst Scott Sonnon followers. Thanks.

Calling Tyler Hass! Tyler did a brief review of the device. After reading some articles, I would like to hear some opinions. The claims seem a little far fetched (curing cancer), but it may have some other uses.

I used it for a little while, but I didn't notice any major differences. You might ask around Scott Sonnon's board and hopefully someone with longer-term experience.
The Frolov book is very interesting though. If you get the Frolov device, get the book too. I'm not qualified to say whether the information is accurate or not, but it seemed well reasoned to me. He compares his approach with a few different breathing techniques designed to treat asthma.
I got to where I could do one breath per minute during 20 min. sessions. Apparently, that is nothing compared to what some of their guys can do.
I always meant to get started again, but it does take a fair amount of time to do it.
