I bought the book when it came out and couldn't put it down, it's so well written. You're carefully led on a journey where you learn so much on the way. I'm a professional voiceover artist and since following all the advice and also sleeping with my mouth taped up I don't get sore throats or a dry mouth even narrating all day in the voice booth, I feel much healthier, and my anxiety levels have dropped dramatically. Thank you, James Nestor, you really have dramatically improved my life.

I watched this about a month ago and since then I've watched it many more times and shared it with everyone in my family and most of my friends. This changed my life the minute I watched it and I've been on a positive upswing in my mood, anxiety, and depression ever since. James, I don't know if you read the comments, but thank you so much. I cannot thank you enough; you've helped me get my life back on track. This may only have been a small piece of my puzzle of my depression but it was enough to get the ball rolling. I no longer live in fear of panic attacks, hyperventilation. Going on walks and focusing on slow nose breathing has become my form of meditation. I wish I could thank you in person. Thank you thank you THANK YOU.

I am 29 and I am very active, and have been my whole life. I am a boxer and I am accustomed to breathing through my nose only, something I use to be very good at it. But after a fight with Covid March 2021, I am teaching myself how to breathe again . This video was helpful but I still have some ways to go. My gas tank isn’t what it was before I got sick. My breaths are short and I noticed I been using my mouth more which concerns me. I’ve been teaching myself how to use my nose again and man, this is a tough exercise - something I use to be so good at I’m trying to relearn. A

I have been focusing on my nasal breathing while biking.Can be tough at times & can seem like I`m "drowning".The more I do it the easier & more natural it becomes. I often "hum" while exhaling as well which I understand increases nitric oxide which in turn dilates blood vessels.

If you haven't read it yet, get it now, it could transform your health and outlook on life in general. But I want to add that the breathing ideas in this video are pretty much all from the Buteyko method, which is discussed at length in the book, and also something you can find lots of info on at KZpost.

As excellent a book as 'Breath' was to read, I didn't fully appreciate the craftsmanship of James Nestor as an author until I went on to read his earlier work 'Deep.' Goodness, gracious. Nestor's uniquely engaging way of sharing scientific knowledge about anatomy, physiology, kinesiology, physics, chemistry, marine biology - and more, is literally, - no pun intended - bottomless. He makes learning fun to read. Also, he narrates his own audiobooks, which adds to hearing the author make the inflections he or she intended. James Nestor is a gift. Share him - far and wide.

In doing a Kung fu study of over 20 year , I’ve used nasal breathing.It has helped me breathing in using the gym , surfing , Kungfu and Yoga practise. It brings you to be conscious of your breath and breathing till when you least expect you are using your breath during the day in different activities to effect. I like to sit in a lotus position i a steam room and concentrate on breathing in out out slowly, hissing the breath on the way out. Remember that most illness come toa deoxygenated body. Build a habit of nasal breathing over over months and lay on your back in a star shape and see how well you float as your oxygen level has increased. 🇦🇺 scott .

The Buteyko method consists of gradually reducing the depth of breathing. This is achieved by a willful (conscious, but not violent) gradual reduction of external breathing to the norm, through relaxation of the muscles that make breathing possible (diaphragm).
Bart De Bie
Bart De Bie 2 ай бұрын
@All American The purpose of the Buteyko method is to normalize (or improve) your personal unconscious breathing pattern 24/7 so as to provide respiration in accordance with internationally accepted medical and physiological norms. Practically speaking, the method is designed to eliminate chronic alveolar hyperventilation (or too much breathing) and to restore the normal balance between carbon dioxide and oxygen in the lungs, blood and all cells.
Bart De Bie
Bart De Bie 2 ай бұрын
@All American The nose filters, sterilizes, warms and humidifies the air. The mouth doesn't filter, sterilizes, warms and humidifies the air so: mouth breathing = trauma to the lungs.

Whenever I play like video games or watch movies I feel like I breathe automatically and I’m not aware of my breath which is so good I was always like that before does anyone have any tips for me please you would save my life

I did yoga for a couple of years in the early 70s, and the breathing exercises were very relaxing. The asana's which incorporated the right breathing were magic. Why did I not continue with it? Just lack of discipline I think. Before that in the first book on health I ever read, the author gave what he said was the first rule of health, breath through your nose. Best advice I ever got, it took a week to change from being a mouth breather, but I felt the difference immediately.

These tips really helped me during covid having to wear a mask. I had long had asthma and I knew I needed to wear mask because that made me at a greater risk of having worst covid symptoms. Unlike people who walked around 42 years telling everybody I have asthma have a medical exemption then you need to be wearing a mask. The problem is your mouth breathing and that's why you're not getting enough oxygen and feel like the mask is somehow harming you. When you breathe through your nose and out through your mouth you have regulated your breathing and you don't have any trouble and I'm morbidly obese and out of shape and sometimes walking just to my car or definitely going upstairs is a struggle. But now that I focus and try to do more nose breathing this happens to me 90% less than before

Well, I think you are right when you speak about the need of breathing through the nose, because it pressurizes and filters the air, but some of us can’t do that all the time. Lots and lots of people have nose septum deviated and bread very badly using only one nostril, others like sporty people have to bread from their mounths because they can’t take enough air through their noses, and opera singers ( and singers of other styles too) have to inhale through their mounths because is more silent and quicker than through the noses, and also the neck muscles stay in that way more relaxed and ready for singing.

Get your breathing tested! Here’s what I found. I had always played sport but could never get enough oxygen through my nose. Then I tried pranayama breathing, I literally couldn’t do it. Breathing in only on side didn’t give me enough air. By this time I was aware enough to look into it. I went to my GP who sent me for a skin prick allergy test. Here they tested how much air I could get through my nose. Found out I was allergic to dust. My nose was 90% blocked on one side and 80% on the other. Been a battle ever since to find a remedy. I use nasal steroids, thought about surgery. But, at least I know why. Through knowing that, I’ve learnt to work with what I’ve got. If I’m relaxed it makes it much easier. Meditation helped with this too.

My simple solution: exhale through the mouth, if really under physical load. I think it's OK even to breathe in through one's mouth during exercise, e.g. while swimming it's almost impossible not to. But afterwards, breathe in and out through the nose again!

I believe that his recommendation is to only exercise to the point at which you can nasal breathe. If you start mouth breathing you are exercising too hard. I forget her name, but either he or Patrick McKeown use her as an example. She is a gold medalist olympic runner and she has been running as a nasal breather for years.

Thank you so much sir for making this video. I am a 59 year old male who uses a CPAP machine to help me breathe properly while I sleep at night. In the part in the video - where you explained the differences and benefits of breathing through the nose over the mouth, it made me wonder about how I use a full face CPAP mask because my mouth won't stay closed when I lay down and sleep primarily on my back. And I think I have tried a chin strap to keep my mouth closed before so that I can use the nasal pillow type of CPAP mask (I don't seem to have the right structure for it to hold properly). My question is, my breathing through my mouth with the CPAP mask, is that not as healthy as it would be if I was able to breathe though my nose with CPAP somehow else? Or by some other means besides CPAP while sleeping? Thank you in advance for your time. - Larry C.

I sleep soundly, I do not wake up in the middle of the night to pee, and I never have a dry mouth anymore, which is a key indicator of snoring. All symptoms GONE. Why would I use the stupid machine anymore? I NEVER needed it, just needed to keep my mouth shut.

Mate ...use your cpap machine. Listen to the guys who do it for a living. Use a nasal pillow ...better. My bp has dropped since diagnosed and using a cpap.

Get your breathing tested! Here’s what I found. I had always played sport but could never get enough oxygen through my nose. Then I tried pranayama breathing, I literally couldn’t do it. Breathing in only on side didn’t give me enough air. By this time I was aware enough to look into it. I went to my GP who sent me for a skin prick allergy test. Here they tested how much air I could get through my nose. Found out I was allergic to dust. My nose was 90% blocked on one side and 80% on the other. Been a battle ever since to find a remedy. I use nasal steroids, thought about surgery. But, at least I know why. Through knowing that, I’ve learnt to work with what I’ve got. If I’m relaxed it makes it much easier. Meditation helped with this too.

When I was a teen i could run a mile and keep my mouth closed. The whole time. I knew it was something special and a signal of health. I couldn't do that a few years after. Diet change and life change. It was an indicator of whole body mental and physical health. I went down a bad food problem. Holding breath time is an indicator for me now. Low carb high saturated fat enables me to hold breath 5 times longer. Pre-diabetic, breath hold time at most was 20 -25 seconds. At different times now i can hold for 90-100 seconds. Very interesting. Sprinting or burst exercises helps a lot. But if you are bloated it'll be less hold time. I didn't realize all the other benefits of nose breathing. My wife mentioned your book as someone else recommended it to her. Now I have to go home tonight and say, oh honey you mentioned this breath book. Now I get it. Thanks for the info.

I have asthma.. Due my outdoor hobbies, i try my best to deal with my condition.. 2 main things i find really help me so far : 1. breath slowly, focus on relaxing my whole body and mind while doing it and, 2. work out regularly. With my asthma, i can't do work out as hard as other people without asthma.. So, i try to have a lot patience to slowly build my stamina and endurance. Alhamdulillaah, i can do snorkeling, hiking, and even half marathon.. The activities that a lot people who know my condition thought i would not do it with my asthma.

Getting Started by Peter Kolb While the Buteyko method introduced into the west has been getting excellent results, it does not entirely accord with Professor Buteyko’s recommended practice. During two weeks he spent in New Zealand in December 2000, he demonstrated the Buteyko technique as it should be practiced. Aim Firstly, it needs to be understood that breathing too much is a bad habit that leaves you with a debilitating shortage of carbon dioxide and bicarbonate. It usually results from long term, undischarged stress. Any stress makes you breathe more. If this is sustained over a long time period it becomes a habit. The physiology behind this habituation process is well understood. Buteyko therapy aims at reversing this, by habituating to less breathing. You do this by developing and sustaining a feeling of a slight shortage of air over a long time period. This gradually restores your carbon dioxide and bicarbonate levels back to normal. Maximum Pause While it is possible to stifle an asthma attack with a long and uncomfortable breath hold know as a maximum pause (MP), this procedure does not reverse your asthma and does not retrain the respiratory center to pace your breathing correctly. Professor Buteyko is emphatic that the maximum pause has no therapeutic value in restoring healthy breathing, which is the aim of his therapy. It is also dangerous for people with various disorders such as hypertension, heart disease, epilepsy, kidney disease and diabetes. It can also destabilize your breathing, making it worse. Unfortunately the maximum pause has been introduced into a westernized version of the Buteyko technique, much to the annoyance of the Professor. An understanding of the physiology behind the Bueyko method leaves no doubt that the maximum pause cannot improve your breathing. DIY/Self-help Professor Buteyko is firmly opposed to the DIY/self-help approach. The Buteyko technique relies 100% on patient compliance for effectiveness. Learning it from a script is like learning Yoga or martial arts from a book. Most people will experience changes in their bodies as their CO2 levels rise. These changes vary from one individual to another. Buteyko practitioners help you deal with these changes, keep you motivated and ensure that you do the breathing exercises correctly. Support for your Buteyko practitioner enables him to continue his work of bringing the technique to other sufferers. Nevertheless, very few people around the world have access to a Buteyko practitioner. So here are some basics to help get you started. Medication Do not make any changes to medication. Steroids must be taken as prescribed. Because of carbon dioxide shortage asthmatics often don’t make enough Cortisol (natural steroid) and must have supplements. Steroids are not just anti-inflammatories but they are needed by the body and without the right amount it can be almost impossible to get breathing back to normal. Your doctor will be able to review your need for steroids when you stop having asthma symptoms. Bronchodilators must be taken only when needed. As you progress, discuss with your doctor the possibility of weaning yourself off long acting bronchodilators and replacing them with short acting ones. That will give you more control over using them when needed. You should find that within days you will be able to overcome asthma attacks with reduced breathing and won’t need the bronchodilators. Nevertheless, you must always carry them with you for emergencies. Nose breathing Always breathe through your nose. If your nose is blocked perform the following exercise: After breathing normally (do not make any exaggerated breathing manoeuvre), hold your breath for as long as is comfortable, and then gradually resume very gentle breathing. It may help to pinch your nose, nod your head a few times or do some other form of exercise. In stubborn cases or when the blockage is due to a cold, you may have to try a few more times. To avoid breathing through your mouth in your sleep, you might like to experiment with a little light medical paper tape to keep your mouth closed. Mouth taping at night is not recommended by Professor Buteyko, but most people find it extremely valuable. If you do, protect your lips with suitable cream, use a low tack tape (some are quite aggressive), and make sure you fold a tab or handle at each end for rapid and easy removal. Do not go to sleep with tape on your mouth if this causes any form of anxiety. Comfort Make sure you’re comfortable before starting the exercises. Remove unnecessary clothing since the improved blood carbon dioxide will dilate blood vessels in the skin, thereby warming you up. Posture To get your posture right stand with your back to a wall, heels, shoulders head and bottom touching the wall. Now drop your shoulders. Keep this upper body posture when sitting. Relaxation While maintaining your posture, relax all the muscles in your chest, neck, shoulders, arms, tummy and particularly the diaphragm. It’s a good idea to tense them up a bit first before relaxing them so that you can properly identify them and make sure they are all relaxed. Normal Breathing Take off your shirt and stand in front of a full length mirror. Watch your chest and tummy for breathing movement. Make sure that your chest does not move at all, and only the upper part of the tummy moves, between navel and breast bone. The second thing to check for is that the tummy moves out with each in breath and not the other way around. Many people get this wrong. Your out-breath must be free, relaxed and unforced. Reduced breathing (RB) Your aim is to develop a feeling of slight hunger for air, sustain this over a period and do this frequently. In fact, this should become a habit so that you do it all the time until you have achieved your health goal. Try to feel your breathing and become aware of your breathing pattern. Now try to maintain this pattern while taking in just a little less air on each breath so that you develop a slight hunger for air. Initially try to sustain this for two minutes, then five and then ten. If you follow all the steps correctly, then you should feel really calm, good and even a little sleepy. If you already practice relaxation techniques, yoga etc, you can combine them with reduced breathing. Measuring your breathing Hyperventilators breathe more than normal in order to achieve lower than normal blood carbon dioxide levels. It follows that if you have to breathe more than normal, then you will also not be able to hold your breath as long as you should. Professor Buteyko has cunningly used this principle to measure your blood carbon dioxide by testing how long you can hold your breath. You start the pause somewhere in your normal breathing cycle. This is how you start the pause: Look up with your eyes and at the same time pinch your nose and start a stop watch. Just before it starts to get uncomfortable, stop the stop watch and resume normal breathing. You should be able to resume normal breathing without any effort and without taking deeper or more frequent breaths. Some precautions: - Do not take a deeper breath before the pause. - Do not make any attempt to empty the lungs before the pause. - Do not worry about which phase of the respiratory cycle you happen to be in before starting the pause. A pause is just an interruption of normal breathing. The time in seconds is called a Control Pause (CP). Asthmatics typically have a CP of 5 - 15 seconds. (But not everyone with such a low CP has asthma.) Your aim is to achieve a CP greater than 40 seconds, although for perfect health Professor Buteyko recommends a CP of at least 60 seconds. Doing a Set When at rest, correctly seated, comfortable and relaxed and after breathing normally for at least five minutes you are ready to do a set. A set consists of Pulse - CP - Reduced breathing - 3min normal breathing - Pulse - CP First measure your pulse and then do a CP. Record the results on a table. Then do reduced breathing for ten minutes. Breathe normally for three minutes, then take your pulse again and take another CP. If you’ve done your reduced breathing correctly your pulse should go down and your CP should go up. Sometimes the pulse remains the same. If it goes up you’re not doing it correctly. After three days you should be able to do around 8 to 10 sets a day. You can then start integrating reduced breathing into your daily life. Ideally you should aim at doing reduced breathing all day. That takes care of the exercises. Here are a few helpful hints to help your recovery. - Don’t eat unless you are hungry. Only eat until you have had enough. Eating increases breathing; eating excessively increases breathing excessively. - Don’t dress too warmly. Be careful not to overdress children. If you are worried about them being cold, check their ears, nose, hands and feet. If these are warm, they’re OK. - Make sure you get plenty of vigorous exercise. But don’t exercise to the point where you have to open your mouth to breathe. If any of these recommendations make you dizzy, sick, anxious or give you palpitations, stop immediately. If possible see a Buteyko practitioner.

About The Buteyko Method: A Summary of the Pathophysiology of Chronic Hyperventilation by Ira Packman, M.D. The fact that chronic hyperventilation (CHV) has an effect on the lungs is easily understood and explained. The systemic (whole body) effects however, are physically and physiologically distant from the lungs and therefore are more difficult to understand. The multi-system, wide spread systemic ramifications of chronic hyperventilation are numerous. These effects are all caused by the initial effect of pulmonary hypocapnia (low CO2) which causes spasm of the airways leading to asthma. The loss of CO2 from the lung on a long term basis causes a compensatory response throughout the body. This concept is called homeostasis which means that the body is always trying to stay in balance and return to its most comfortable state. A partial list of homeostatic controls would include: - Constant body temperature - Constant whole body water volume - Glucose levels - Mineral balance including sodium, potassium, magnesium, zinc etc. - Acid base balance (Ph control) The acid base/Ph control mechanisms are very sensitive and closely controlled, because the Ph of the body affects the function of every body system. It is this system that is activated when patients chronically hyperventilate. Understanding this concept, we can follow what happens with CHV. - The lungs continuously blow off too much CO2 causing local pulmonary hypocapnia (low CO2) and arterial hypocapnia. - The arterial hypocapnia immediately changes the Ph of the circulating blood causing an increase in the Ph (alkalosis). - The increase in the Ph causes a decrease in the delivery of Oxygen to all the bodies tissues due to the Bohr Effect (In an alkalotic environment, the hemoglobin molecules in the red cells hold onto the oxygen molecules more tightly and will not release the O2 to the tissues). - The kidneys see the alkalosis/Ph change and know that it must correct the bodies Ph back towards neutral (neutral Ph is a Ph of 7.40). Once CHV becomes long standing the kidneys response becomes an ongoing process in which the kidneys excrete bicarbonate in an attempt to correct the alkalosis which was created by the CHV. - The net result is a depletion of the bicarbonate buffers due to continuous over excretion of bicarbonate which also causes the loss of electrolytes including magnesium and phosphorous which are lost with the bicarbonate. - The loss of phosphorous also decreases the production of ATP (adenosine tri-phosphate) and ADP which are the bodies’ main source of energy. - This then causes a decrease in the functioning of many organs including the muscles, heart, lungs, bone marrow, immune system and liver. - These functional changes, coupled with the arterial spasm that occurs directly due to the low CO2 levels in the blood, are expressed in the long term as muscle fatigue, hypertension due to arterial spasm, decrease in the oxygenation of the brain, migraine headaches due to arterial spasm, spasm of the arteries supplying the gut, decrease brain function with memory changes, alterations in the production of proteins and metabolism of lipids in the liver causing elevated cholesterol. This is just a partial list of the systems, organs and bodily functions which are affected by CHV and the subsequent low CO2 levels in the lungs and blood. This concept regarding the origins and causes of these diseases is very radically different from the way medical schools teach about these diseases. It is revolutionary and may be too simple for many academicians to accept or understand.

Buteyko Method for Asthma: - An immediate decrease and, later, complete elimination of medication. - Increase in the CP is accompanied by normalization of immunity. - With the increased CP, allergic reactions become less severe and the number of allergens, which can provoke asthma attacks, decreases. - Improved physical endurance and improved quality of life. - Avoidance of triggers and high CPs (over 35 s 24/7) for 2-3 weeks lead to complete disappearance of allergies, the disappearance of swelling and inflammation in airways, and normalization of lungs’ tests.

Although I've been a life-long non-smoker I've suffered from COPD for nine years. When I suffer respiratory distress I instinctively exhale through my mouth and inhale through my nose. Some of James Nestor's narrative doesn't quite seem scientific; I wonder if a medical specialist - a respirologist - has watched this video and, if so, what was their appraisal of its content.

Mouth breather for 40 years. Yes, I do have an elongated jaw, teeth that hit in the molars (everything chewed in back teeth), big space in front from constant tongue pressure (despite braces as a child), low energy, dry mouth, headaches, poor digestion (gluten & lactose issues), poor memory, weight loss or at least trouble putting weight on, brain fog, heightened fear and depression, etc. Mouth breathing is so unhealthy. If you love your children, help them overcome breathing issues before it changes their lives for the worse. Get the septoplasty, the allergy medication, whatever it takes. I found relief far too late. My face and jaw have morphed beyond realistic repair. Only recently have I made unusual efforts to force myself to nose breathe. It was very difficult and took years. I discovered some silicone nostril cones that have helped immensely too. Not the solid ones, the honeycomb ones. They spread my nasal openings wider and help air flow, especially when sleeping. I try to take Claritin once a week for an extra boost, but not abuse it. I got prescriptions for two nasal sprays (great at first, but wearing off). I clean my sheets more often. I use an air purifier. I avoid lactose. Getting much better. Still need to work on expanding my lungs after so many years of shallow breathing. Good luck to all of you struggling with this serious ailment.

Fully in agreement about breathing through the nose, absolutely essential for good health. The Germans have an insult of 'mouth breather' i.e. the village idiot - think of my namesake Sir John Mill's performance as Michael the village idiot in the film 'Ryans Daughter'. I actually believe that breathing through the nose gives an oxygen boost to the blood flowing to the brain.

Breathing through your mouth also changes the shape of your face, for the worse; retracted chin basically. So if you want a stronger, more defined looking chin, nose breathing all the way! If you have kids and animals and those kids are allergic, might want to really consider their ability to nose breath aside from everything else. Wish my parents had.
