Breath - Lydbog

- The New Science of a Lost Art

Bag om Breath

Brought to you by Penguin. Narrated by James Nestor. THE INTERNATIONAL 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? A fascinating book, full of dazzling revelations' Dr Rangan ChatterjeeNo matter what you eat, how much you exercise, how skinny or young or wise you are, none of it matters if you're not breathing properly. 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 Sao 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 longheld 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.

    Super god bog, der giver indblik og forståelse for noget så vigtigt som åndedrættet.

  • Dorte W. 10. Juni 2021

    Absolut anbefalelsesværdig læsning! Vi har allesammen brug for at lære at trække vejret rigtigt. Seriøst, vi har glemt hvordan, og det gør os syge og ude af trit med os selv.

    James Nestor viser vejen til denne viden - dygtigt, nærværende, uhøjtideligt og videnskabeligt velunderbygget.

    Læs den! Forær den til en ven! Og tag lige en dyb indånding gennem næsen!
