Respiratory health

Our respiratory system enables our body to attain the necessary oxygen required to meet our cellular demands for nutrients, as well as removing metabolic waste. While the growth, development and protection of our respiratory system requires optimal nutrition. The respiratory system is structurally made up of the nose, pharynx, larynx, trachea, bronchi, bronchioles, alveolar ducts and alveoli. Just like nutrition, functional breathing is required for optimal health of our respiratory system, and the mucous in our airways helps to keep our airways moist and traps particles and microorganisms.

The respiratory system is commonly associated with colds, flus, and infection. Naturopathic medicine has traditional had a strong interest in respiratory health and the treatment of respiratory illness. As with all areas of health we support each condition by considering all lifestyle and causative factors in each treatment plan and we use a variety of methods to restore and maintain healthy respiratory function.
The most vital function of the respiratory system is the breath! At Biophilia Health we are passionate about the Buteyko Method. A breathing method designed to restore functional breathing in those with dysfunctional breathing. The Buteyko method is effective in conditions such as asthma, anxiety, sleep apnoea, snoring and more. If you would like to learn more about the Buteyko method, click here
