We can go for a few weeks without food, a few days without water, but only a few minutes without breathing, before we die. 

We invited Dr Rosalba Courtney, an osteopath with over 30 years of clinical practice do discuss breathing. 

Dr Courtney wanted to identify the key piece of advice to help her patients improve their health. To find the answer she did a PhD on dysfunctional breathing and discovered that there is a lot more to breathing than simply the exchange of oxygen and carbon dioxide.

Practical advice from Dr Rosalba Courtney

Dr Rosalba leaves us with these 5 tips:

  1. If you’re breathing through your mouth, take care of that first.
  2. Become aware of your breathing.
  3. Breathe through your nose.
  4. Breathe low, slow and soft.
  5. Investigate your nighttime breathing.

Dr Rosalba believes that the biggest challenge for people in our modern world on their journey towards having good health is: “Breathing in airway.”

A summary from Dr Ron

“I came away from this interview thinking that breathing is really about regulation, it’s regulating our body chemistry, it’s providing us with a filtration system if we’re doing it well, it’s providing us with an internal massage system through our diaphragm if we’re doing it well. But it’s not just about regulation, it’s about building resilience.

That’s the theme of the Unstress Health Membership: To help you take control of your own health, to build physical, mental and emotional resilience to deal with the stresses of life. Breathing is just so fundamental.”
