Breath By James Nestor, book review by Nikki Temkin

This book can be lifechanging (or at least will change the way you breathe) –it makes sense that it’s a worldwide bestseller. Who would have thought something as simple as changing the way we breathe could be so revolutionary for our health, from snoring to allergies to immunity? humans have lost the ability to breathe correctly, with grave consequences. In Breath, journalist James Nestor travels the world to discover the hidden science behind ancient breathing practices to figure out what went wrong and how to fix it by drawing on thousands of years of ancient wisdom and cutting-edge studies in pulmonology, psychology, biochemistry and human physiology. A fascinating read.
