How to Stop Mouth Breathing(Treatment)
“All chronic pain, suffering and diseases are caused  from a lack of oxygen at the cell level." Prof. A.C. Guyton, MD, The Textbook of Medical  Physiology* 
* World’s most widely used medical textbook of any kind * World's best-selling physiology book 
1. Effects of mouth breathing 
Breathing through the mouth is a sign of chronic hyperventilation. Healthy people (over 40 or 60 seconds for the body oxygen test) donot breathe through the mouth at all. If theytry, their body oxygenation will be below 40 s.On the other hand, if you observe sick people,you will notice that they frequently do breathethrough the mouth.The very first step in solving this problem iseducation. You must completely understandthe importance of nasal breathing 24/7. Mouth breathing causes more than 15 differentnegative and immediate physiological effectsin the human body. However, for the sake of simplicity, I am going to list only three biochemical factors that directly affect bloodflow and oxygen supply to all vital organs.First of all, mouth breathing causes spasm of smooth muscles in airways which is alsoknown as bronchoconstriction or  bronchospasm.Second, mouth breathingupsets normal utilization of nasal nitric oxide(with NO for its chemical formula). Third,mouth breathing will cause reduced oxygendelivery to body cells. Let me focus quickly onthese three factors since they are of paramountsignificance for normal health.
1.1 Bronchospasm
Bronchospasm takes place due to low CO2since during mouth breathing we increase theloss of CO2 from the lungs and airways.Dozens of clinical studies have shown thatCO2 is a potent relaxant of smooth muscles inthe human body (including muscles around blood vessels, airways, and the small and largeintestines). Some studies claim that CO2 is themost potent known vasodilator. Therefore,CO2 is also possibly the most potent bronchodilator.That means when you breathe more air at restand have lower CO2 levels in the airways,your bronchi and bronchioles becomespasmodic (or constricted). When you breatheeasy and very slowly, your airways are dilated.Constriction of inflamed airways, as for peoplewith asthma, bronchitis, cystic fibrosis, and soforth, has disastrous effects since airways arealso inflamed and full of thick mucus. Thatmakes air transfer either reduced or, in someareas of the lungs, even completely blocked.www.NormalBreathing.com
 
Movements of air through inflamed andconstricted airways greatly increases work of  breathing. Your breathing muscles need towork much harder. Worst of all, friction fromair movement causes additional mechanicaldamage to the already inflamed airways. Thus,mouth breathing for people with inflamedairways is like scratching a fresh inflamed or unhealed area on the surface of the body.
Nasal nitric oxide
The second effect of mouth breathing relates to nasal nitric oxide that is necessary in the lungsto disinfect them by killing microorganismsthat can cause respiratory infections. Nitricoxide is also a potent vasodilator and itssynthesis explains why nitroglycerine has beenused for almost a century to stop heart attacks.Yes, this known and safe drug nitroglycerineconverts into nitric oxide, dilates, bloodvessels, and prevents angina and heart attack symptoms. We naturally produce nitric oxidein different body parts, including sinuses, fromarginine, a semi-essential amino acid that is present mainly in meat, fish and nuts.
1.3 Less CO2 in the lungs and O2 incells
The third effect is the most destructive for oxygen delivery to cells of the body. Low CO2in the alveoli can cause one of the followingtwo effects.If you have normal lungs, as in most people,your overbreathing will cause low CO2 in thearterial blood. This causes constriction of arteries or vasoconstriction(resulting in less blood and oxygen being transported to all vitalorgans) and the reducedBohr effect (resulting in less oxygen being released by red bloodcells in capillaries). Both effects drasticallyworsen oxygen availability in cells. Note that you get more O2 in body cells if you breathe slower and less at rest (down to 3-4small breaths per minute). This is the law of  physiology.Those people who have problems with their lungs, due to asthma, COPD or cystic fibrosis,will make their ventilation-perfusion mismatchworse since mouth breathing favors spread of  pathogens in the respiratory system (due tolack of nitric oxide) and also reduces alveolar CO2 causing bronchospasm discussed above.Therefore, these people get too low levels of oxygen in the blood or hypoxemia and toomuch CO2 in the arterial blood (due to too lowCO2 in the lungs).www.NormalBreathing.com
