How to Use Your Breath To Heal Your Body and Mind (Minisode #30)

Update: 2021-04-055


It can be all too easy to take the body for granted, especially those functions that we don’t absolutely have to think about in order to survive. Breathing is one of those things, but it deserves more attention than most of us give it. 

In this mini-episode, Dhru speaks with James Nestor and Dr. Louis Ignarro about the forgotten power of breathing, why breath is the anchor for all systems in the body, and how we can tap into it to dramatically improve how we feel.

James Nestor is an author and journalist who has written for Scientific American, Outside, The New York Times, and more. His latest book, Breath: The New Science of a Lost Art, explores how the human species has lost the ability to breathe properly—and how to get it back. 

Dr. Louis Ignarro is a medical research scientist who was awarded the Nobel Prize in Medicine for his breakthrough discovery of nitric oxide, and how it positively impacts health and longevity. Nitric oxide is currently being utilized all over by hospitals and universities as possible treatment for COVID-19.

As someone who is on the computer a lot, I realized all that screen time was negatively affecting how well I slept. I started learning about blue light and how it disrupts the body’s natural melatonin production, so I decided to try blue-light blocking glasses throughout the day to see if they helped—and they totally did. I love the blue-light blocking glasses made by BLUblox. BLUblox glasses reduced my digital eye strain and dramatically improved my sleep, and I have more energy throughout the day. Right now BLUblox is offering my listeners 20% off, just go to and use code DHRU at checkout.
