Podcast #76: Healthy Breathing Exercises with Patrick McKeown

April 27, 2020

“My mission is to empower people to take control of their own health, well-being and fitness using simple breathing exercises proven to improve body oxygenation”.
Patrick McKeown

Most people take their breathing for granted. Why shouldn't they? They have been doing it since birth without any effort.  But my guest, Patrick McKeown, takes breathing very seriously, and he is convinced that breathing correctly can change your life.

Patrick McKeown has written seven books on improving your body's oxygen use. His latest book, “The Oxygen Advantage,” is a simple yet revolutionary approach to improving your body's oxygen use.

Furthermore, his book explains why chronic over-breathing can contribute to problems such as anxiety, asthma, fatigue, insomnia, obesity, and heart problems.

Today Patrick shares why one of the biggest obstacles to better health and fitness is how we breathe. Also,  he shares breathing exercises to help increase endurance, weight loss, and improve cardio-fitness.

I am very happy that Patrick was willing to share his expertise in lung health, breathing, and oxygen use.

Because,  as we all know, Covid-19 is a respiratory disease. The virus affects cells in the airways, from the nose and throat down to the lungs. Therefore,  learning techniques to help us breathe better during this outbreak is more crucial than ever.

Please welcome Patrick McKeown to today's podcast.

  1. I found this interview fascinating and rewarding all the way through. My wife has sleep apnea and my children have athletic asthma and I realized, my family and I have so many ways to benefit from this information. However, I started thinking how much I enjoy evidence-based nutrition facts, and wondered about all the studies backing this up, before we dove into this all the way. Can you provide links to published studies from the scientific community or at least some other medical authorities that support all this info?

    1. Hi Dave – thank you so much for listening and your kind words. I will reach out to Patrick McKeown for some links and send them to you. Nancy
