Try Breathing Through Your Nose

While researchers and scientists around the globe work to study Covid-19 to better understand it, people worldwide are asking themselves: what can I do to protect myself and my family? Taking matters into their own hands – and in addition to hand washing, wearing masks, social distancing and avoiding crowds, which we cannot recommend enough – many people are trying to support their immune systems naturally, either by improving their eating habits, getting more rest and/or by taking supplements or foods known to have positive effects on immunity.

But there may be a simpler action we have overlooked in trying to protect ourselves from getting Coronavirus: breathing. But not just that – breathing through our nose.

In an article in Best Life by our client, Louis J. Ignarro, Ph.D., Professor Emeritus from the UCLA School of Medicine and Nobel Prize winner, breathing through your nose can increase nitric oxide in your system. He explains that “researchers are testing whether inhaled nitrous oxide (NO) would improve the condition of coronavirus patients. And while there’s no conclusive proof yet that this treatment can help doctors fight the pandemic, Ignarro recommends that people adopt a simple breathing exercise that introduces more NO into the body anyway. Not only could it help you fight off COVID-19; inhaling through your nose has a host of other health benefits.

“Your nasal cavities produce the molecule nitric oxide…that increases blood flow through the lungs and boosts oxygen levels in the blood,” Ignarro writes. “Breathing in through the nose delivers NO directly into the lungs, where it helps fight coronavirus infection by blocking the replication of the coronavirus in the lungs.”
