Nose Breathe for Better Protection and Health
God's engineering is the simple process of living in a way that allows our bodies to function in a strong, healthy way, maximizing our ability to fight off disease and to live as fully as possible.
One powerful aspect of God's engineering that is helpful to know for being out and about is to only breathe through your nose. This does a number of things (feel free to do your own research here, but it is basic biology):
- humidifies the air before it gets to the lungs, keeping them healthier;
- filters some portion of the particles, such as dust, bacteria, and viruses, before they get to the lungs, keeping them and you healthier;
- regulates air flow. Many people over-breathe through their mouth. The nose is smaller and limits air flow. Ironically, this can help with issues like asthma and allergies. A search on Buteyko breathing can help with learning about this.
All this leads to less coughing, healthier lungs, and a healthier person who as better able to fight off disease. And, the simplest way to “flatten the curve” is to strengthen our immune systems. May God startle you with joy!
