Respiratory health

Respiratory health affects all of us.

Breathing is an automatic function, something that we often take for granted. Every day, we draw air into our lungs almost 20,000 times.

The volume of air inhaled and the rhythm and depth of breathing depend on how much oxygen the body needs. When we exercise, our need for oxygen increases.

Lungs can be trained to function as efficiently as possible, even if your lung function has been impaired for one reason or another.

Lung function is affected by respiratory diseases, being overweight, posture problems, poor breathing technique, anxiety, fear, and pain.

Everyone’s health and quality of life are affected by many factors. These factors include exercise, healthy lifestyle choices, weather conditions, good breathing air quality, good sleep, and a smoke-free and nicotine-free lifestyle.
