  • Description

    There is nothing more essential to our health and wellbeing than breathing: take air in, let it out, repeat 25, 000 times a day. Yet, as a species, humans have lost the ability to breathe correctly, with grave consequences. Journalist James nestor travels the world to figure out what went wrong and how to fix it. The answers aren't found in pulmonology labs, as we might expect, but in the muddy digs of ancient burial sites, secret Soviet facilities, new Jersey choir schools, and the smoggy streets of SEO Paulo, Brazil. Nestor tracks down men and women exploring the hidden Science behind ancient breathing practices like Pranayama, Sudarshan Kriya and tummo and teams up with pulmonary tinkerers to scientifically test long held beliefs about how we breathe. Modern research is showing us that making even slight adjustments to the way we inhale and exhale can jump-start athletic performance, rejuvenate internal organs, halt snoring, allergies, asthma and autoimmune disease, and even straighten scoliotic spines. None of this should be possible, and yet it is. Drawing on thousands of years of medical texts and recent cutting-edge studies in pulmonology, psychology, biochemistry and human physiology, breath turns the conventional wisdom of what we thought we knew about our most basic biological function on its head. You will never breathe the same again.
