"No matter what you eat, how much you exercise, how resilient your genes are, how skinny or young or wise you are, none of it matters if you're not breathing properly. There is nothing more essential to our health and wellbeing than breathing: take air in, let it out, repeat 25,000 times a day. Yet, as a species, humans have lost the ability to breathe correctly, with grave consequences. Science journalist James Nestor travels the world to figure out what went wrong with our breathing and how to fix it. Why are we the only animals with chronically crooked teeth? Why didn't our ancestors snore? Nestor seeks out answers in muddy digs of ancient burial sites, secret Soviet facilities, New Jersey choir schools, and the smoggy streets of Sao Paulo, Brazil. He tracks down men and women exploring the science behind ancient breathing practices like Pranayama, Sudarshan Kriya, and Tummo and teams up with pulmonary tinkerers to scientifically test long-held beliefs about how we breathe. Modern research is showing us that changing the ways in which we breathe can jump-start athletic performance, halt snoring, rejuvenate internal organs, mute allergies and asthma, blunt autoimmune disease, and straighten scoliotic spines. None of this should be possible, and yet it is. Drawing on thousands of years of medical texts and recent cutting-edge studies in pulmonology, psychology, biochemistry, and human physiology, Breath turns the conventional wisdom of what we thought we knew about our most basic biological function on its head. You will never breathe the same again"--… (més)

Breath: The New Science of a Lost Art de James Nestor

  1. 00
    The Oxygen Advantage: Simple, Scientifically Proven Breathing Techniques to Help You Become Healthier, Slimmer, Faster, and Fitter de Patrick McKeown (caimanjosh)
    caimanjosh: Both works delve heavily into the science of breathing. McKeown's book is heavily based on Buteyko's work and goes into much detail on it; Nestor's is more wide-ranging. I'd highly recommend both.

I may have been reading this book at a crucial time in my life, but I felt this book was a ——- breath of fresh air. Information I knew something about was presented in interesting ways. I highly recommend it, especially for people with Sleep Apnea. ( )

Tremendously interesting and informative. Gave me a good background for the techniques I'm learning from my trainer. ( )

I read this book until I found the author had slipped into what seemed like questionable science. ( )

I read this as an E-book and then bought a paperback edition. The breathing information and exercises have been very helpful to me. I finished the paperback book on 1-12-2022 after reading ALL the notes; now I want to look through the information / websites listed for additional information.

Breathing is so automatic for everyone that few people think about how we take a breath can affect out health. Nestor's Breath: the New Science of a Lost Art introduces the reader to what is really going on when we breath. He presents the thinking about breathing from the ancient yogis up to the newest scientific investigations. His book is written like a magazine article recounting his own personal experiences with breathing techniques and even participates in a bizarre experiment.

Although he explains a wide variety of breathing techniques, his explanations are not really adequate to try them without further help. to help people, his excellent footnotes provide links to further articles as well as to useful videos illustrating the techniques. The one thing that is missing from the book are illustrations of the throat and body parts being discussed. ( )

During the first trial, Douillard told the athletes to breathe entirely through their mouths. As the intensity increased, so did the rate of breathing, which was expected. By the time athletes reached the hardest stage of the test, pedaling out 200 watts of power, they were panting and struggling to catch a breath.
Then Douillard repeated the test while the athletes breathed through their noses. As the intensity of exercise increased during this phase, the rate of breathing decreased. At the final, 200-watt stage, one subject who had been mouthbreathing at a rate of 47 breaths per minute was nasal breathing at a rate of 14 breaths a minute. He maintained the same heart rate at which he'd started the test, even though the intensity of the exercise had increased tenfold.
Simply training yourself to breathe through your nose, Douillard reported, could cut total exertion in half and offer huge gains in endurance. The athletes felt invigorated while nasel breathing rather than exhausted. They all swore off breathing through their mouths ever again.
Finding the best heart rate for exercise is easy: subtract your age from 180. The result is the maximum your body can withstand to stay in the aerobic state.
Mouthbreathing causes the body to lose 40 percent more water.
contrary to what most of us might think, no amount of snoring is normal, and no amount of sleep apnea comes without risks of serious health effects.
The right nostril is a gas pedal. When you're inhaling primarily through this channel, circulation speeds up, your body gets hotter, and cortisol levels, blood pressure, and heart rate all increase. This happens because breathing through the right side of the nose activates the sympathetic nervous system, the "fight or flight" mechanism that puts the body in a more elevated state of alertness and readiness. Breathing through the right nostril will also feed more blood to the opposite hemisphere of the brain, specifically to the prefrontal cortex, which has been associated with logical decisions, language, and computing.
