The importance of nasal breathing

Nasal breathing is essential for the proper growth and development of the orofacial structures and for optimal health.  There are many benefits that derive from nasal breathing versus mouth breathing.  The videos below, with the world leader in Buteyko breathing re-education; Mr. Patrick McKeown, will broaden your knowledge as to why it is imperative that you breathe through your nose rather than your mouth.  Patrick has published various books on Buteyko breathing re-education, with his latest book titled “The Oxygen Advantage”, and is world renowned for his work.

These mini-videos educate us on how mouth breathing has been scientifically proven to decrease your quality of life, and has been linked to various health problems such as: Asthma, rhinitis, obstructive sleep apnea, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), craniofacial changes and including Orofacial Myofunctional Disorders (OMDs).  You will also learn how to perform a Buteyko breathing exercise to decongest the nose naturally.  Hope you enjoy!
