About the Original Book:
The way we breathe, Nestor observes, has got markedly worse since our ancestors invented fire. So much so that nearly everyone alive today is breathing incorrectly. We breathe too shallow, too fast, and too much, often through our mouths instead of our noses, and sometimes not at all. These failures are behind many of the medical conditions endemic to modern life, including asthma, anxiety, insomnia, hypertension, and heart disease. Drawing from ancient tradition, scientific research, and his own experiences, Nestor explains the breathing habits and techniques that can halt or reverse many of these chronic illnesses, boost athletic performance, and extend our lifespans. Breath is proof that every inhale and every exhale, depending on how it is performed, can impact our bodies and health in positive or negative ways.
