Book I am LOVING That is Helping Me Breathe!
Breath: The New Science of a Lost Art by: James Nestor

“You will never breathe the same again.  ‘Breath’ turns the conventional wisdom of what we thought we knew about our most basic biological function on its head.”

A few quotes that stood out to me:

  • “It was then- mewing in unison with another grown man in a homemade castle, clumps of human bone dust still caked in the eyelets of my boots- that I realized the quest to discover the lost art of breathing was going to be a bit of a shit show.” (p.129)
  • “Sleep apnea, snoring, asthma, and ADHD, are all linked to obstruction in the mouth.” (p.120)
  • “Today, the human body is changing in ways that have nothing to do with the ‘survival of the fittest.’  Instead, we’re adopting and passing down traits that are detrimental to our health.  This concept called dysevolution, was made popular by Harvard biologist Daniel Liberman, and it explains why our backs ache, feet hurt, and bones are growing more brittle.  Dysevolution also helps explain why we’re breathing so poorly.” (p.12)
  • “What our bodies really want, what they require to function properly, isn’t faster or deeper breaths.  It’s not more air.  What we need is more carbon dioxide.” (p.75)
Check this book out this summer and see if you come back breathing easier 😉
I know I will be!
