NASAL BREATHING VS

MOUTH BREATHING

The Way We Breathe is a Crucial Component to Our Overall Health.

Incorrect breathing techniques lead to many health issues that exist in modern society. Specifically, mouth breathing is an abnormal mode of breathing that negatively impacts our overall health. Not only does mouth breathing affect the airway, but also the skeletal development of the face as children grow. Sadly, the consequences of mouth breathing in a growing child can produce lifelong health issues.

Are YOU a Mouth Breather?

It can be very subtle but just as detrimental to your health. Mouth breathing often develops into the habit of over-breathing. What exactly does over-breathing look like?

 

  • Audible breathing during rest

  • Open mouth posture

  • Chapped lips

  • Regular sighs

  • Sniffing often

  • Holding the breath

  • Taking large breaths prior to talking

  • Yawning regularly

  • Breathing through the chest

  • Heavy breathing at night

  • Waking up with a dry mouth

Overbreathing is a habit and it can be changed! Breathing pattern disorders can be reversed. Nasal breathing day and night has the power to transform your life. What is more essential than the oxygen we breathe and the way in which we deliver that oxygen to our bodies?
