Breathing is one of the fundamental functions of our Body
There is nothing more essential to our health and well-being than breathing. Just as the intestines absorb food, the nutrient air enters our bodies through our lungs. Just as the digestion of food begins in the mouth and not the nose, the digestion of air begins in the nose and not the mouth. Only in case of emergency, these inputs into our organism can help each other out
Breathing is responsible that everything else that keeps our organism alive, working and developing, fulfills the basic condition, because oxygen is the most important fuel for the 2 most vital organs is, the brain and our heart.
Breathing in and out air occurs between 12,000 and 25,000 times a day. This is also done by the diaphragm, one of the most consequential muscles in our body, which not only pumps air, but separates the chest cavity and keeps organs moving all the way to the brain by its movement.
Finally, air must enter our bodies through a specially designed organ, the nose, which performs over 30 known functions for this task alone. These include quality checking, i.e. smelling, tasting, humidifying, warming, purifying, braking, enriching with NOx, stimulating the vagus nerve and activating the parasympathetic nervous system.
Just as proper breathing has incalculable positive biochemical, biomechanical, psychological effects, there are many corresponding negative consequences when the mouth is used for breathing: Deformation of teeth and jaw, damage to teeth and gums, development of allergies, stress-increasing effect on the nervous system, increasing the probability of depression and anxiety.
However, as a species, humans have not only lost the ability to breathe properly, but grossly underestimate the urgency to breathe properly and this has serious consequences.
Modern research in pneumology, psychology, biochemistry, and human physiology shows us that even minor adjustments to the way we breathe in and out can help boost athletic performance, rejuvenate internal organs, stop snoring, allergies, asthma, and some autoimmune diseases.
