HOW YOU BREATHE MATTERS:
Your mouth is the largest access to the inside of your body. In this season, when many breathe through the mouth, it is essential to understand how crucial nasal breathing is to decrease the effects of viruses such as Covid-19 and Influenza, as well as airborne allergens.
Nasal breathing warms and lubricates the air you breathe, protecting your respiratory system. It also increases oxygen levels in your blood, a natural vasodilator increasing systemic healing. But, most importantly, it cleans the air you breathe by stimulating NO (Nitric Oxide) produced in the nose and sinuses. NO is a potent antimicrobial against VIRUSES, bacteria, and fungi and is active in nasal breathing. In addition, those nose hairs protect us from dust, allergens, and foreign particles. It’s said up to 20 billion per day. Therefore, if you have a little one at home, establish correct nasal breathing by assuring lips are closed, especially while sleeping.
FROM DR. WENDI’S DESK:
Humming is known to increase the body’s NO. So, if you add humming to your nasal breathing, you will trigger your parasympathetic nervous system, which in turn causes RELAXATION. 🙂 NO is good for our health and wellness and can also be found in green vegetables.
Did you know that breathing through your nose while wearing a face mask can reduce associated headaches and dizziness? For more information, we welcome you into our family of wellness.
