In this episode, Dr. David Hanscom talks with journalist and bestselling author James Nestor about the physiology of breathing and its effect on our health. He shares his battle with respiratory illnesses, how it led him to explore the science behind better breathing and resulted in his recovery through breathwork. What he learned during his research led him to write the bestselling book Breath: The New Science of a Lost Art.

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.  Nestor has spoken at Stanford Medical School, Yale School of Medicine, Harvard Medical School, the United Nations, Global Classroom, and appeared on more than 60 radio and television shows, including Fresh Air with Terry Gross. He lives and breathes in San Francisco. For more information, visit: Mrjamesnestor.com.
