On today’s show, Dr. Ben interviews Patrick McKeown, author of The Oxygen Advantage. Together, they talk about the impacts of breathing on full body health. Patrick begins with his personal story of how breathing right radically changed his health. He explains how he examines a person’s breathing and what respirating well looks like. Patrick describes, in detail, the problems with mouth breathing, especially at night, and how it relates to inflammation and health problems. Dr. Ben and Patrick touch on how wearing a mask is problematic in adequate breathing. During the second half of the show, Patrick shares how this problem has come about as things have changed historically. He finishes the show by sharing how each listener can grade their own breathing and points them to where they can find ways to improve it.
