Once you learn the principles of healthy breathing, there’s no going back.

Come join my world. Watch these videos of famous nose- and mouth-breathers.  What do you think looks better?  Who do you think looks comfortable?  Uncomfortable?  Whom would you rather speak like?

In all our courses, we teach how to keep breathing through your nose even when your mouth is open to eat or talk…This one change of habit in and of itself can often reduce symptoms of asthma, allergies, anxiousness and sleep troubles.

In related gossip, I once read that the reason Barbra Streisand never got a nose job was that she was concerned that changing the size and shape of her nose, and the nasal cavities, might ruin or change her famous voice.

(For information about how the path the air takes through the nasal cavities is important protector of good health, see the blog on 28 Reasons To Nose Breathe.)
