Inhaltsangabe

An instant New York Times best seller

No matter what you eat, how much you exercise, 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 well-being 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.

Journalist James Nestor travels the world to figure out what went wrong and how to fix it. The answers aren’t found in pulmonology labs, as we might expect, but in the muddy digs of ancient burial sites, secret Soviet facilities, New Jersey choir schools, and the smoggy streets of São Paulo. Nestor tracks down men and women exploring the hidden 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 making even slight adjustments to the way we inhale and exhale can jump-start athletic performance; rejuvenate internal organs; halt snoring, asthma, and autoimmune disease; and even 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.

Breathing is totally underrated

I read this after I saw Joe Rogan post it on his podcast and I always knew I am not a good breather. After this book I finally manage to put together how the breathing techniques can influence our bodies and minds and more over that there are many different types of techniques that can each be used to induce a certain state.

Great book!

First Principal approach to Breathing

No BS Book.
Every Story was engaging.
Every Information was valuable.

A must-read for everyone with/interested in breathing problems of any kind, circularry conditions, diabetes and skin problems.

My breathing got from bad to OK in a few days of practice. Be aware of your breath!
