IN THIS EPISODE OF THE HUMAN UPGRADE™...
… you’ll learn why every breath you take makes a difference in how your entire body functions. The way you breathe affects the quality of your life and every one of your body systems. Full stop. This goes for adults and kids alike.
In this special edition, breathing experts Patrick McKeown (“THE BREATHING CURE: Develop New Habits for a Healthier, Happier, and Longer Life”) and James Nestor (“Breath: The New Science of a Lost Art”) approach the topic from diverse perspectives, but agree on a lot. Especially the benefits of nose breathing and the detriment of mouth breathing.
They explain the biochemical, biomechanics and psychological components of how you breathe. They also present exciting new research in pulmonology, psychology, biochemistry and human physiology that shows how making even slight adjustments to the way you inhale dramatically influences things like:
- sleep and snoring
- fitness and athletic performance
- brain function
- focus and concentration
- oxygen intake
- heart rate and blood pressure
- blood sugar
- internal organ function
- nervous system
- respiratory health
- asthma and allergies
- autoimmune disease
- female hormones
- stress and anxiety
That's just the start of what you can change when you change your breathing. Big claims, yes. All true. And even bigger benefits for you.
Breathing can nurture your body, center you, and rebalance you. When you start harnessing the power of your breath, you're going to feel incredibly better than you do right now.
