The Breathing Cure covers a wealth of research into breathing for health. It guides you through practical ways to apply the science. Patrick McKeown describes optimal breathing from three dimensions — breathing rate, light breathing exercises and deep breathing from the diaphragm. He explores the science of nasal breathing and explains the relationship between mouth breathing and chronic illness.
In his latest work, Patrick McKeown is not suggesting functional breathing as a “cure all.” While it could be argued that research into breathing techniques is limited because there is little financial motivation for pharmaceutical companies to promote natural healthcare, Patrick recommends that you use breathing exercises alongside, not instead of, traditional treatments.
