Author : James Nestor

Genre : Self-Help

This book title intrigued me, so I grabbed in at the bookstore. It’s an excellent scientific adventure into the lost art and science of breathing. Those who studied breathing discovered that 90 percent of us—very likely me, you, and almost everyone you know—is breathing incorrectly and that this failure is either causing or aggravating a laundry list of chronic diseases. Yes, how we breathe really does affect the size and function of our lungs. Yes, breathing allows us to had into our own nervous system, control our immune response, and restore our health. Yes, changing how we breathe will help us live longer.

Along with his own personal study and experimentation, James Nestor goes back in time and shares dozens of stories of breathing exploration through the ages and in modern times. He writes, “Starting today, I’ll put into practice several thousand years of teachings from several dozen pulmonauts, breaking down their methods and measuring the effects. And I’ll explore techniques to expand the lungs, develop the diaphragm, flood the body with oxygen, hack the autonomic nervous system, stimulate immune response, and reset chemoreceptors in the brain.”
