Perhaps you’ve heard that breathing through your nose is “better.” I know I’ve heard it before.
But is it really true and what does that even mean? Can nose breathing actually help me perform better on the pavement/court/field?
Well, I have news for you — it’s not just better for you physically, but, according to the research, nose breathing is essential to your physical well being, and mouth breathing can actually be detrimental to your health.
Heavy words, right?
Mouth breathing can lower IQ, negatively affect your sleep, and thwart the levels of oxygen reaching your brain, which can kill brain cells! On the other hand, practicing nose breathing can lower blood pressure, heart rate, and injury risk.
This Tuesday, July 25, Dr. Daniel Klauer will lead a workshop in which he’ll explain why nose breathing is essential to your health. You’re guaranteed to walk away with tangible breathing tests and exercises you can practice at home to improve your quality of life.
Dr. Klauer and his TMJ & Sleep Therapy Centre team have worked with many elite high school and college athletes to improve their performance, and at this free workshop, he’ll be teaching us those same breathing techniques.
Some of the Myths Dr. Klauer Will Debunk on Tuesday
If you’ve ever thought any of the following (of which I’m definitely guilty), you should be at Tuesday’s event:
- “Nose breathing isn’t that big of a deal.”
- “I’ve never been able to nose breathe while working out, so I never will.”
- “I’ve always breathed through my mouth, so I can’t change that now.”
The great news is that this workshop will be tailored to the audience’s interests and abilities, so you’ll walk away with a clear understanding of why nose breathing is important and how you can apply it to your fitness routine.
Some (But Not All!) of the Questions Dr. Klauer Will Answer on Tuesday:
- Why is it essential to breathe through your nose?
- What are the physiological benefits of nose breathing?
- How does mouth breathing affect facial development?
- How are nose breathing and injury prevention linked?
- How can you normalize nose breathing?
- How does this apply to my [insert your favorite sport/physical activity]?
Hope to see you there!
