Nasal breathing. Page 45
“Working together, the different areas of the turbinates [six maze-like bones that begin at the opening of your nostrils and end below your eyes] will heat, clean, slow, and pressurize air so that the lungs can extract more oxygen with each breath. This is why nasal breathing is far more healthy and efficient than breathing through the mouth.”
Mouthbreathing and Sleep. Pages 29-30:
“Mouthbreathing causes the body to lose 40% more water. I felt this all night, every night, waking up constantly parched and dry. You’d think this moisture loss would decrease the need to urinate, but, oddly, the opposite was true.
During the deepest, most restful stages of sleep, the pituitary gland, a pea-size ball at the base of the brain, secretes... vasopressin, which communicates with cells to store more water. This is how animals can sleep through the night without feeling the need to relieve themselves.
But if the body has inadequate time in deep sleep, as it does when it experiences chronic sleep apnea, vasopressin won’t be secreted normally. The kidneys will release water, which triggers the need to urinate and signals our brains that we should consume more liquid.”
