Today’s guest, Patrick McKeown has helped create a buzz about a revolutionary technique based on the Buteyko method. In a time where COVID-19’s main target is our lungs, it’s important to keep them strong. That’s why today’s episode is dedicated to learning how to breathe properly…. LISTEN HERE!
Learning to breathe through the nose can be a valuable tool, because most people breathe at only 10-20 percent of their full capacity. Restricted breathing greatly decreases respiratory function, which in turn decreases energy levels in the body.
The nose is a reservoir for nitric oxide, an essential gas for the maintenance of good health. By breathing through the nose, you harness various properties of nitric oxide. Nitric oxide plays a role in dilation of the blood vessels in the lungs so that oxygen can be properly absorbed from the air.
Over the past 15 years, Patrick McKeown has been focused on breathing re-education. He has trained thousands of people around the world with his scientifically validated techniques. And the results have been dramatic… with increase of oxygen flow to all of your body’s systems. And what that translates to a host of benefits, which we’ll talk about today.
Patrick, has written 8 books on breathing, including the international best-seller, The Oxygen Advantage, which is something of a bible on nose breathing.
