La respiración bucal consiste en inhalar el aire respirado, principalmente por la boca sin pasar por la nariz. De esta manera el aire no se filtra y no se limpia correctamente pasando directamente a nuestro organismo.

Pandemics and our lifestyle

Pandemics have ravaged the earth since the beginning of time. They have always had a common denominator, the lack of hygiene and a depressed immune system of the population. Since smallpox, typhus, the Spanish flu, HIV or Covid, the factors are always the same.

Our lifestyle is not sustainable. But what does this mean? 

Well, nothing less than this ….The air we breathe is terribly polluted by a wild industrialization, which offers us vehicles, drugs, highly polluting technology. Our food is based on ultra-processed junk food and our creed is money as the only true god.

The most advanced countries,  export their garbage to the poorest countries and thus washing their image to  seem more “cleaner”, without wanting to see that there where the rubbish is sent , it is burnt  or thrown into the sea, thus continuing to wrap the planet with our garbage

It is not without curiosity that we admire all those who have managed to make their fortune by poisoning us, making us sick and deceiving us with misleading publicity and false promises of a better future.

The future has arrived and it is shocking.

Do we have what we deserve? well probably, but we should define who deserves it.

I refuse to believe that several hundred million children who are refugees, who suffer from hunger and war, who are miserably poor, deserve this horror.

Our immune system

Our immune system is our body’s natural defense against infection. Through a series of steps, our body fights and destroys invading infectious organisms before they do harm. When our immune system is working properly, it protects us from infections that cause illness.


Scientists have begun to understand our immune system. They have been able to understand how it works in detail.

Researchers are generating more information about how it works and what happens when it does not work well. our thoughts, our emotions, the way we handle situations, all this affects our immune system.

 We must begin to understand that “we are what we think” to find out why por brain gives different orders to our Immune System.

The key is in oxygenation. Oxygen is the foundation of our immune system to stay strong and to help our brain make the right decisions.

 Learn to how breathe correctly.

You can’t imagine what breathing correctly can do for you.
