Nostril Breathing for Better Health

Last updated: May 2023

So many people who suffer from sleep apnea also breathe through their mouth. I have been a mouth breather since childhood. It never occurred to me to try to change to nasal breathing until I read Breath by James Nestor. Nestor is a health journalist who found that nostril breathing is a much healthier way to breathe.

In this video, I share my journey of changing from mouth breathing to nostril breathing. In particular, I show how nasal strips, nasal dilators, and mouth tape can be helpful tools.
