Nasal Breathing: Best Books & Resources | 2021

Just as sleep is something that most people take for granted and assume that they know how to do correctly, so is the case with breathing. At the forefront of this scientific snowball gaining momentum are researchers, scientists, and authors helping us to reconnect with our autonomic nervous systems in ways that many of us didn’t know was possible, but which have been known and practiced by hunter gatherers and ancient cultures as a daily part of their lives.

Breathing affects everything from our heart-rate, to our insulin blood levels, to our mental health, and even organ health. In hunter gatherer society’s they have no crooked teeth and nor is sleep apnea (a condition that millions suffer from and die from each year) an issue.

Our modern lifestyles, ways of eating, and breathing (bottle feeding, soft food, and mouth breathing) are exacerbating the heath epidemic that plagues modern humans despite the luxuries of modern life, and hundreds of years of modern medicine. We are living in the dark when it comes to breathing and even our sleep (a separate – but related – topic). Nasal breathing has an incredible amount of historical proof, and increasing evidence. It is not a cure for every disease or condition but will improve your life.

I’ve been immersing myself in the research of nasal breathing and listening to interviews with some of the prominent authors and researchers in this field. I’ve been implementing nasal breathing in my own life. Below are my recommended books and interviews to learn about nasal breathing.
