Learn to breathe through your nostrils, as nature intended, and say hello to a number of physical and mental health benefits.
If you’re like most people, you probably think that because you are alive, you are breathing well – that’s not always true. Breathing is an automatic action and as your stress levels increase your body adapts by breathing shallower and through your mouth. This sets up a vicious stress cycle that can only be broken by learning to nostril breathe.
Nostril breathing is a natural solution to; improving your athletic ability; increasing your ability to manage stressors; alleviating asthmatic, rhinitis and hay fever symptoms; decreasing anxiety symptoms, improving your sleep, and better oral health. Not to mention improved weight management, immunity and cognitive abilities.
Anyone can learn to nostril breathe. If you can nostril breathe for a minute, you can nostril breathe for life! And what’s more, you only have to learn it once!
This is not a new form of therapy – Buteyko Method or nostril breathing, was developed in 1952 in response to dysfunctional breathing patterns.
If you learn to nostril breathe, then the likelihood of needing nasal surgery decreases. Furthermore, without learning to nostril breathe the benefits of nasal surgery can be undone over time.
If you would like to learn how to breathe better, by nostril breathing, then you need to learn Buteyko Breathing Techniques instead of relying on medication and possibly surgery to breathe.BOOK A FREE DISCOVERY CALL (15mins)
1:10 Australians experience breathlessness severely enough to impact their physical and mental health
Is this YOU?

Skeptical about how breathing can improve your health?
I was too until I had run out of options for my son and myself. Turns out my son became a mouth breather after we successfully stopped him sucking his thumb - who knew that was an adaptive response to breathe well!
Six years ago I started working out because I was slowly gaining weight and I wanted to be fit and healthy in my later years. A PT session left me breathless, never mind a run or a stint on the cross-trainer! My doctor thought I was asthmatic. I had the breathing capacity of someone who'd smoked 40 a day, all their life, and I'd never picked up the habit.
Through re-training my breathing I'm happy to say I breathe better, sleep better and feel healthier.
