#162: Patrick McKeown - The Mind-Blowing Science of How Your Breathing May Be Destroying Your Health

Absolutely mind-blowing episode today. Today on the show, we are joined by Patrick McKeown. Patrick is a world-renowned breathing practitioner. Patrick originally gained his education at the trinity college in Dublin, before completing his clinical training in the Buteyko Breathing Method in Moscow.

Patrick has written several best-sellers including The oxygen advantage, close your mouth, asthma free naturally - a book which he discusses how he cured his own asthma by following some of the breathing principles we discuss.

I have to say, this episode absolutely blew my mind. I had never considered that we could have evolved to breather incorrectly until I came into contact with Patrick. In this episode, we discuss why breathing your nose is pivotal to great health. We discuss the damaging effects of mouth breathing, how do women and women’s breathing differ, how is breathing affecting anxiety and back pain, should we tape our mouths shut when we sleep, what causes fatigue, how to correctly breathe and so much more.

I really can’t emphasise this enough - if you are knew to this subject, then prepare to have your mind blown.
