EP132 The Breathing Cure | Patrick McKeown

Roll With The Punches

Hold your breath for today's guest... literally!  Patrick McKeown, Author of more than a few books including The Oxygen Advantage and his latest masterpiece The Breathing Cure joins me today and blows (pun intended) my mind with all things breathing and just what a medicinal wonderland our breath actually is. From sports performance to focus and learning, from sleep apnea to asthma and low and behold, one heavily discussed RWTP topic, anxiety and depression.  If I could have kept Patrick for 10 hours on this episode I dare say my enthusiasm nor my questions would have diminished.  Albeit at times mighty scientific this chat both went deep, yet barely scratched the surface of what Patrick can share with us on breathing. If this episode doesn't prompt you to share it and discuss it with everyone you bump into, I don't know what will.

Breathing is something I think we all take for granted. But with stressful lives a modern reality, anxiety at an all time high, asthma being a common respiratory condition, is it time we drew more focus to the breath and how it affects our physiology and psychology? Patrick McKeown, author of 8 books on the topic, joins me to discuss all things breathing, oxygen, why Co2 is the unsung hero, how breathing actually affects our body and mind, how you can test your breathing with the BOLT score, and more.

073 | Patrick McKeown - Breathing Exercises For Health & Performance

Stacked with Joe DiStefano

Today’s guest is Patrick McKeown, a leading authority on nasal breathing and the author of The Oxygen Advantage, a best-selling book that contains simple and effective techniques to help improve health and optimize athletic performance. Patrick has carried out extensive research into the biochemistry and biomechanics of breathing and he is the creator of the SportsMask, which is designed to boost sports performance, and Myotape, which aims to help people switch from mouth to nasal breathing. Through his Oxygen Advantage Program, Patrick provides functional breathing training intended to improve oxygen delivery, reduce breathlessness, and alleviate the symptoms of a wide range of health conditions such as asthma, anxiety, sleep apnea, and nasal congestion. As a former chronic mouth breather, he is well aware of the negative impact that mouth breathing can have on our health and the role it plays in contributing to poor quality sleep, fatigue, lack of concentration, and disproportionate breathlessness during exercise. He believes that breathing lightly and softly through the nose, using the diaphragm rather than the upper chest, calms the mind and improves the biochemistry of the body.During our discussion, Patrick disputes the widely-held belief that it’s beneficial to take big breaths and counters the assumption that the more air we breathe, the more oxygen gets delivered to the organs and tissues. In fact, he points out that the harder and faster we breathe, the more the blood vessels constrict, causing oxygen delivery to be reduced. He explains that dysfunctional breathing patterns can affect our performance during physical exercise and lead to disproportionate breathlessness, or even exercise-induced asthma. For these reasons, Patrick advises all recreational athletes to switch to nasal breathing in order to increase their fitness levels, delay fatigue, aid recovery, and prevent the build-up of lactic acid. Support the show (https://www.coachjoedi.com/joe-recommends )
