Dina Ceniza has achieved a Bachelor of Science (Biomedical Science), a Master of Arts (Special Needs Education) and is a Certified Practitioner in Buteyko Institute Method, Buteyko Institute of Breathing and Health (BIBH). She has an extensive background in teaching and training.
Dina, her husband, children and parents have all successfully completed a breathing retraining course for their own health and have implemented the good breathing habits they learned into their lives with enormous success. Dina personally suffered from asthma which saw her hospitalised twice in 2013.
With her condition not being alleviated by the asthma medications she was taking, she sought a second opinion. Her new GP identified chronic hidden hyperventilation as the root cause of her problem. With the help of Buteyko and her new GP, Dina was able to stabilise her condition and taper off her medication within nine months.
As a direct result of the Buteyko Method, her husband no longer snores. And her children’s asthma and hayfever are well managed just by their healthy breathing habits.
Dina has appeared on The Cafe to talk about hyperventilation, hayfever, allergies and the difference between breathing healthily and unhealthily. The Cafe is New Zealand’s morning television lifestyle program that airs at 9:00 am weekdays on Three.
