Your nose is for breathing Your mouth is for eating

There are several reasons why it’s obvious that your nose is designed for breathing. First, your nose is like an air conditioner for your lungs. The air that passes through the nose on the way to the lungs is filtered through the nose. Your nose will greatly reduce the amount of dust, pollen, bacteria, viruses, or whatever else is floating around in the air.

These things would cause big problems if they were allowed to flow directly into the lungs. The nose is designed to handle them. It is your first line of defense. If you breathe through your mouth you do not use these defenses.

Second, in this air conditioner, the air that reaches your lungs through your nose has been in your body a little longer, so it’s closer to your body temperature. Your lungs don’t like extreme temperatures. Nasal breathing reduces the problem.

Your air conditioner also works to increase the humidity of the air that reaches your lungs. Your lungs like the air to be clean, not too hot or cold, and very humid. The air that is inhaled through the mouth is much drier when it reaches the lungs than the air through the nose.

It is probably this information about the lungs needing humidified air that led to earlier theories of asthma based on the lungs “drying out” and the development of “vaporizers” that are designed to put moisture into the air in your home or bedroom to stop her. this “drying”. These machines seem to have a little impact, but only if you breathe through your mouth. If you breathe through your nose, it has a built-in automatic humidifier and you don’t need them.

It was also believed for a while that this “wetness factor” was why asthmatics who started swimming often benefited, while running or jogging less often seemed to help. This has now been discredited by additional research.

Of course, you and I now understand why swimming is more likely to reduce asthma, since it alters your breathing pattern. You have to stop breathing for a while when your face is underwater, plus because you’re burning energy, you’re producing more CO2, so you can train your breath to accept a slightly higher level. Swimming doesn’t seem to help some asthmatics, probably because they breathe even more while swimming.

The other reason your nose is for breathing is that because your nasal passages are so much smaller than your mouth, you’re forced to breathe less. You have to work much harder to overbreathe with your mouth closed. You can still do it, it’s just a little more difficult. In addition, nasal breathing allows additional defense against inflammation of the nostrils to reduce airflow. The only reason the nose gets clogged is because the shortage of CO2 causes the smooth blood vessels to swell, just like in “asthma”.
If you keep your mouth closed, your nose will help reduce airflow.

Note: Your nose will not be completely blocked unless your mouth is open.

You can hiss and continue, but remember that the more you block, the more CO2 will be trapped, prompting you to open again.

If your nose is now stuffy or partially stuffy, experiment with your breathing to make it more blocked. [release CO2 by breathing more deeply at the same speed].

Then make it less blocked by breathing less deeply, or just hold your breath for several seconds. [pinch your nostrils closed] longer than is comfortable for you and breathe as little as possible through your nose after you breathe.

In short, all you have to do is trap more CO2 than you release, just like you’ll do to stop asthma.

If your blocked nose is preventing you from closing your mouth and becoming a healthier nose breather right now, then unblock it with the following procedure. So keep your mouth shut! When you first convert from a “mouth breather,” you may feel like you’re not getting enough air. This is a good sign and the media will benefit almost immediately. Just bear with it, it will pass as you progress through your shallow breathing exercises.

Be self-aware of trying to “breathe” through your mouth by chewing on a pencil or finger, or by yawning more than a few times. If you start yawning madly and repeatedly, hold it back a bit and keep your mouth shut. An occasional yawn is to be enjoyed, stretch out and make a good yawning “noise”, it’s good for stress relief.

To unblock your nose right now. You need a little extra CO2, so after a short exhalation, close your nostrils and hold your breath. [Your mouth is obviously closed at this time.] Hold the position until about 5 seconds after you have developed the feeling that you want to breathe. [not need a breath]Release your nostrils and allow only a small breath to come through your nose. Keep the CO2 inside! It will be at least a little clearer. If it’s still very locked, repeat the process several times with about 5 seconds between each grip. It really restricts your breathing. Be like a statue and don’t move. [Keep your mouth closed!]

It may get blocked again as your breathing tries to increase to its previous level, but that’s fine, just repeat the procedure. All you have to do is trap a little more of the CO2 you’re producing inside of you.

A different way to do this is to continue breathing at the same level but increasing CO2 production. You can do this standing up, and without increasing your breathing, walking in place. In a very short time you will feel your nose start to clear, once it is clear stop and restrict your breathing to keep the CO2 in.

If you get out of breath while walking, stop and slow down your breathing, it means that you have unconsciously increased your breathing and actually lost more CO2.

Goodbye nasal sprays and pills

You now have the ability to unblock your nose at any time without medication or surgery. If you follow why it crashes, you can reverse the process. The same procedure will also dry it.

The best reason to keep your mouth shut

The final reason why you should breathe through your nose is the most important reason for many. I find that the most compelling reason for teens and children is how they look when they wander around with their mouths open.

Take a moment now to think about movies. In a good TEEN movie there will be a “good guy,” a “main bad guy,” and usually a pack of not-so-bright “assistant bad guys.” The main good guys and bad guys are smarter, and the actors who play them will keep their mouths shut. However, the actors playing the chumps will automatically start “mouth breathing”. We will automatically subconsciously associate a lower intellect with an open mouth.

Try it yourself. Pretend you’re really stupid. Is your mouth open or closed? now be cool [or whatever the current word is Rad? Kewl? ]and shut your mouth… or you look silly.
