Breathing. It’s the first & last thing we do in life! Healthy breathing is diaphragmatic, quiet, and through the nose, both day & night. Mouth breathers are over-breathers, which results in lower body oxygenation and “fight or flight” hyperarousal of the sympathetic nervous system. Low body oxygenation can cause low energy and inability to concentrate, and interferes with digestion and sleep. Your physician or ENT can rule out physical obstruction in the upper airways, and breathing re-education can support functional patterns of breathing.
If your mouth gets dry during sleep, you are breathing through your mouth, diminishing sleep quality.
Lip taping, nasal dilators & strips can encourage nasal breathing until the habit is developed.
Reduces asthma, anxiety, sleep disorders, & panic disorders.
