Nose Breathing vs Mouth Breathing

The act of breathing through the nose instead of the mouth raises the position of the tongue allowing more oxygen into the brain and body. Data provided by Japanese researchers shows that changing from mouth breathing to nose breathing has numerous positive effects on the oxygenation of the brain and positively alters the oral bacterial count in the mouth.  Reported improvements in bladder control at night and cold intolerance have been noted.

Lets Look Closer At How We Breathe

Breathing is about exhaling and inhaling: expiration and inspiration.  In the preface of his book 'The Tao of Natural Breathing', Dennis Lewis writes:

“…two facts have become clear to me with the regard to the relationship of breath to health and inner growth. First, that our poor breath habits have arisen not only out of our psychosomatic ‘ignorance’, our lack of organic awareness, but also out of our unconscious need for a buffering mechanism to keep us from sensing and feeling the reality of our own deep-rooted fears and contradictions. There is absolutely no doubt that superficial breathing ensures a superficial experience of ourselves. Second, that if we were able to breathe more ‘naturally’ for even a small percentage of the more than 15,000 breaths we take during each waking day, we would be taking a huge step not only preventing many of the physical and psychological problems that have become endemic to modern life, but also towards supporting our own inner growth - the growth of awareness of who and what we really are, of our own essential being.”

Breath InTo breathe is to live and to breathe fully is to live fully.  The natural, full-body breathing we are born with is compromised as we cut ourselves off from our feelings and emotions, most commonly to survive the often traumatic challenges of childhood.  The result?  Chronic shallow breathing reduces our breathing capacity to one third of its potential. The result? Diminished exchange of respiratory gases that in turn reduce our cellular energy depriving us of many health-giving actions that natural breathing would have in our inner organs.

The renowned spiritual pathfinder G. I. Gurdjeff said: Without mastering breathing nothing can be mastered.    

Want to look like Denzel Washington or Jennifer Aniston?

Look critically at the film stars and you’ll observe a facial symmetry.  For aspiring thespians this is a distinct advantage when auditioning for a role as it’s one of the features a casting director is looking for.  Facial symmetry is a trait that is attractive not only to humans but to several other species. Both men and women have a greater appeal when they have more symmetrical faces and bodies. Denzel Washington, People Magazine’s sexiest man way back in 1996 was found to have an almost perfectly symmetrical face.

Stimulating the muscles of expression through regular use of the Lip Trainer can catalyse such facial changes, including an improvement in posture.  By increasing the facial expression muscles, an improvement of posture results as strengthening cheek muscles directly impacts the muscles at the back of the back of the neck.           

The Lip Trainer has benefited the following conditions

1.          Down Syndrome    Short Film Clip (3:57) on the Lip Trainer and Down's Syndrome

Those with Down Syndrome were born without developed facial expression muscles (ie weak strength of lip closure).  Consequently their faces all have a similarity - an open mouth, a chubby face with conditions such as sleep apnea, difficulty swallowing, speech disorder and hearing difficulties. When Down Syndrome sufferers start to exercise their lips to strengthen their orbicular muscle, there will be a recovery from those symptoms. 

This image above speaks for itself. This girl’s father in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia said at a special needs education conference in 2011 that his daughter developed the ability to talk using the Lip Trainer and after 3 years of its use can now speak fluently. For more information click here

2.   Gum disease (Bleeding from the gums while brushing teeth)

A recent report from the Singapore Government shows that 85 % of Singaporeans have gum disease because the incidence of breast feeding is low.  Breast feeding is of course where the orbicular muscle of mouth develop; this is not the case with bottle feeding as considerably less sucking is required with the latter.  When these children grow up and become adults, their weak orbicular muscles will cause them to sleep with an open mouth.

3.  Anti-ageing and face slimming

Gravity and age are generally believed to combine resulting in a sagging of the facial skin.  This is reversible as the ‘gravity’ aspect is merely the facial muscles becoming weaker.  Use of the Lip Trainer will tighten the facial muscles as well improving breathing.

4. Dementia

The speech therapists at the Okuno Hospital, Tokyo announced, for the first time in the world that "The dementia (Alzheimer's) can be improved with the Lip Trainer Patakara".

Blood flow to the frontal lobe of the brain increases when lip exercises are carried out with the Lip Trainer.  The brain works as an energy source. It is normally found that the function of the brain decreases in those with dementia as blood flow to the brain has decreased. There are four parts of the brain, the frontal lobe, the parietal lobe, temporal lobe and the occipital lobe.  It is believed that with dementia, blood flow to the frontal lobe reduces first.

5.  Mouth ulcers

People suffering from painful mouth ulcers have reported that, after breathing through their nose, their ulcers stopped immediately.  The reason for this is that nose breathing allows saliva to be retained in the mouth at night and saliva is key to the prevention of mouth ulcers.  Saliva is indeed the best mouthwash available, far superior to the questionable commercial mouthwashes advertised in the media.  

6.  Night Toilet visits

Those trips to the toilet in the middle of the night will decrease within a few weeks and then stop if you use the Lip Trainer correctly, 3-4 times per day. These disturbances are caused by an imbalance in the autonomic nervous system that create shallow sleeping patterns. The increased cerebral blood flow brought about by lip-training will stimulate a deeper sleep and help release antidiuretic hormones from the pituitary gland reducing or eliminating altogether any need to visit the toilet.

8. Bad Breath     

With mouth breathing, saliva in your mouth quickly evaporates. Mouth breathing also allows bacteria to enter with each air intake.  While bad breath is caused by bacteria in the throat as well as trapped food between teeth, we now know that gum disease and ‘furry tongue’ do not cause halitosis as we have been told.  So If you could start closing your mouth during sleep, those bacteria will be washed up by saliva each day. Your bad breath could be gone in as little as 2 weeks. For more information click here

9. Sleep stress / Flu / Common cold / Sore throat / Dry Mouth / Phlegm / Bad attack of coughing / Attack of asthma

When Lip Trainer users successfully changed to nose breathing and started lip-exercising regularly, they wrote to let us know these conditions listed above were resolved. The main cause of the symptoms were largely caused by mouth breathing.

80% of bacteria are filtered out by nose breathing.

10.  Blocked Nose (Sinus)      

There is correlation ship between volume (size) of the nasal chamber and the strength of facial expression muscles.  Mouth breathing when asleep and a lack of strength of the facial expression muscles can bring about a shrunken nasal chamber.  This can be exacerbated in those who have had ENT operations to straighten or enlarge nasal channels. To reduce or stop a blocked nose consciously change from mouth to nose breathing and strengthen the facial expression muscles.  For more information click here

11. Snoring

Many snorers have swollen soft tissue around the pharynx.  This is also brought about by years of mouth breathing.  To stop snoring it may take anything up to 6 months of nose breathing and lip training to reduce the swelling. The snoring sound is caused by the speed of exhaled and inhaled air passing through the narrow passage around the swollen pharynx or at the root of the tongue when the passing air causes it to vibrate.

Fit the Lip Trainer into your mough under your lips, then pressure on the lips to keep them together.  This simple exercise strengthens your facial muscles snd encourages proper breathing through the nose other than the mouth.  The result?  Saliva is prevented from evaporating and problems such as mouth ulcers and bad breath are kept at bay.

Recommended use is to do this four times a day for at least three minutes.  If your lips can't close the device completely for 3 minutes continuously, the effectiveness will not be 100%. The pressure of the lip 'squeeze' is not important but the upper and lower parts must be fully closed in order to strengthen the orbicular muscle (the muscle you kiss with!) and your other facial muscles around the shape of device.

It is said that the 3-minute session just before bedtime is especially effective, so try to do it as often as you can.

You can use the extension handles on the Lip Trainer to pull for 5 second intervals in each direction (left, right, up and down).

Link with cranial nerves

Dr Peter Julu, Breakspear Medical Group’s Specialist Autonomic Neurophysiologist, hypothesises that the Lip Trainer may activate the seventh cranial nerve nucleus in the brain stem. This is the area that can modulate the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems and therefore has a positive effect on our immunity.

Now being studied by many health groups around the world the Lip Trainer has been used since 2000 by over one million people and is currently used in over 6000 hospitals throughout  Asia.  Most new users come from recommendations made by existing users.

Lip Trainer Patakara® is a Myofunctional Therapy Device from Japan. Many aspects of our natural health and beauty are lost due to reduced strength of our facial muscles. This can be reversed. By 'lip training' 4 times a day for 3 minutes, the synapses in the brain can be rehabilitated and both IQ and behaviour can be improved.

Improvement in my physical well being

Immediately I utilized the device I bought last Friday 30 Nov. 2013. I was surprised by the amazing result I noticed the nrxt day.

My insomnia that I was experiencing since I got stroke in 2006 which I have to take sedatives to sleep early and longer during night time was relieved I had a nice sleep and complete rest that night and my constipation was also cured.

I also had a locked jaw that was loosen and cured on the next day.

We saw tremendous improvement in my physical well being just after a day of usage.

Hope in due time my left side paralysis due to stroke will be cured also. I will update you with all of my improvement because I am recording it on the lip exercise recording sheet everyday Hope to see you soon in your office. Thank you very much on behalf of my family.

Fresher than normal!

The Lip Trainer is fantastic! I am a long sufferer of Obstructive Sleep Apnea and I could immediately see the difference in a day!

It has been very normal for me to be very sleepy and lethargic whole day round. After using the Lip Trainer for a day, I woke up the next day fresher than normal. The amazing thing was, I was not feeling sleepy at all during the day!! This is now happening everyday!

There are changes in my sleep pattern and I don't have double chin anymore! My jawline is more defined now.

I wish to thank you for all these great changes!

Mum'd great improvements

My mum age 74, a dementia patient, and I, have been using the Liptrainer since September 2013. I used the product for rhinitis and general immunity as I fell sick often. Our health has improved very much since.

As a dementia patient of 10 years, I saw mum’s condition deteriorated steeply, especially in the past two years. She has lost her ability to perform daily tasks. Amazingly, I am now witnessing that she could do the following:

• balances her movements while walking, hence,
• walks with greater speed and steadiness

Just one year ago, she started to have to cling on to me when walking, as though she knew she would fall if she had not.

- Counts numbers 1, 2, 3 ,4….up to 30 (She would miss some numbers when enumerating)
- Eats independently and with less supervision. She would eat a spoonful and feed herself when mouthful, or she would play with the food and eat only when asked to eat
- Responds to and understand instructions better. She understands when asked to close her lips while using the liptrainer, with more ease.

Generally, she responds to requests and instructions on other daily tasks much better now.

Initially, it was a very tedious when getting her to close her lips.

General awareness and responsiveness:
She responds to questions more logically when in conversations. Whilst watching TV, she is more aware of what is happening and laughs when the show is comical

She is more aware of what is happening in her surroundings than before.

The improvements are gradual but really visible and I believe these have to do with enhanced motor movements (coordination of brains and limbs; nervous system) as well as cognitive functions. Even my two maids have taken notice of the improvements and make effort to help her use the Liptrainer every day. My mum uses the Liptrainer at least 6 times a day, 6 mins each time.

On the other hand, having used the Liptrainer myself, also at least 6 times a day, my rhinitis condition has greatly improved. I believe I am almost recovering.
I sleep so much better and don’t wake up at night like before. I do not need to drink so much water upon waking up as I do not experience any dryness in my mouth anymore. I used to drink more than 3 litres of water daily and of this, more than 1 litre in the morning. I now drink the recommended 2 litres a day.

I have not fallen sick since using the Liptrainer and believe my enhanced immunity is attributed to this miraculous product.

Wife stopped snoring

My wife bought the Lip Trainer a few months ago in Singapore and it is working very well for her. She managed to breathe through her nose after 3 days! And she has stopped snoring at night too. We have referred a few friends they are starting to use the product now.

As a dentist I was very interested in seeing how the product performed and we have other friends that would like to order the product.

Thank you and hope to hear from you soon.
