Air that we breath is important to consider, it should be free of pollutants such as poisons, toxic fumes, smoke, perfumes, mold, etc..
Fresh air from outside is also superior to typical indoor air, when one camps, or even is able to sleep with windows open, there is a noticeable difference in quality of sleep, mood, and health.
The feeling may be described as feeling new when you sleep in high quality air, instead of sleep in a shut up house with stale air contaminated with toxins molds and other allergens and wake up feeling off your game.
Modern people staying inside of buildings most of their time is like lightly suffocating yourself constantly, and this is something that is hard to avoid. Buildings are usually sealed up even during the warm season now, so they are not breathing like buildings in time past probably did.
Many modern people are now in this state for the majority of their life, decade after decade, and this should be obvious as a contributor to lesser health and premature "aging".
On top of that, closed up modern buildings contain toxic air saturated with chemicals, molds, and many allergens that not only literally poison you, but stress your immune system, infect your body quietly, and may make other health hazards more effective at harming.
These things also succeed at messing us up easily now because other points covered here are way out of whack with modern people, such as eating improperly and failing to have the nutrients needed for the immune system to function fully.
The modern home uses building materials that release toxic fumes and poisonous dust, and the items we love and bring into them as well often release toxic fumes, and some of the items also emit other harmful things such as strong energy fields like the monitor in front of your face right now, or a cell phone.
Humans are not immune to such things, and are going to have to pay a price for living in these ways. So while you may decide it's okay to compromise so much, being aware allows us to remove the completely unnecessary things contributing to this that we wouldn't trade any potential health for.
The sad part about modern housing is that much less toxic materials could have easily been used, but healthier versions of things are not really in that great of a demand to be able to overthrow the production of what people are used to using, like formaldehyde saturated materials.
It is horrible for those who live in crowded cities where the air quality is poor compared to out in the country areas and clouds of toxic exhaust fumes hang around the area and they may be so used to it they don't even notice it.
These people can't just walk out into air that is going to instantly begin to revitalize them, since the outdoor air may be like walking into a gas chamber.
If you are in this environment, at least try to find the nearest place you can escape to regularly, and I general suggestion people move from modern crowded cities if possible.
I say modern meaning cities over run with modern technologies and wicked people.
Though, many city people get so used to the city life, they are not comfortable outside of it.
Sleep outside if you are able, either in a tent(there are some great ones out there if you shop around and not just buy the common ones advertised. I like the ones that are mostly just a screen enclosure and are very simple to put up in less than a minute), you could just buy a screen sheet and situate it where you can sleep in it protected from pesty bugs, or invest in a screened porch which can give you some of the perks of being inside your home, but still surrounded by fresh air.
It may take some time to get used to, mainly because most people have never slept outside of a closed up room, but when you do get used to sleeping outside you will not want to sleep inside anymore and will realize how being inside makes you feel and perform poorly once you can compare.
The things indoors that are releasing toxic fumes, become aware of them and work to remove them if possible.
For example, you may realize your carpet is releasing clouds of toxins, or your fiberglass insulation. These are things you can work at to change if you feel you need to, and it will take some research, but some of the easiest things to remove are store bought air fresheners and scents that people abuse to try and make their home smell nice.
It is much easier to avoid them in the first place, so you don't have to go back and fix the issues wasting money, and so you don't have to wonder if you should just burn your house down for the benefit of society. (Please don't go and burn your house down, I am not being entirely literal with that!)
Breathing also plays a part in body alkalinity as well.
► How we breath is also important for health.
The first crucial thing to mention on this is we are designed to breath through our nose, not breathing through our mouth.
While the designs of the mouth and nose work together, you still shouldn't choose to breathe through your mouth, just like you shouldn't choose to try and eat through your nose, unless your nose is blocked and you have to use your mouth, but using your mouth can make it more difficult to use your nose so don't give up trying to use your nose.
Breathing through the mouth causes poor mouth health.
It is designed to have saliva constantly in contact with everything.
Saliva, when your body is healthy and full of nutrients, is helping to keep your mouth in the condition it was meant to be in and also helps repair your teeth and prevent tooth decay.
Saliva also may work to kill germs and keep them under control by a few different methods.
So when you allow your mouth to become dry you will be much more likely to start suffering from a diseased mouth.
Our sinuses releases gasses that mix with the air we are taking in that aid in bodily function.
We miss out on this when we breathe through our mouth, so a mouth breather is actually putting something different in their lungs compared to a nose breather.
Mouth breathing seems like such a harmless thing but affects your entire body.
Though like I said before, don't think mouth breathing must be avoided 100% or else you're going to die, sometimes it helps us survive when we can't use our nose.
Sometimes a person when they over exert themself has to use their mouth or they will pass out.
Just aim to use your nose as much as possible and you should be good.
If you are a chronic mouth breather then you can improve your health simply from switching.
Training and improving your health will help you be able to continue breathing through your nose even during physical output, so if you are exercising regularly and at times have to breathe through your mouth, don't let it become a habit to where you accept that it's okay to breathe through your mouth as long as you are exercising, remind yourself to keep trying to continue using your nose to see if you are able to again, and eventually the amount of exertion that had you gasping for breathe with your mouth, you can comfortably do while using your nose, and this can even help you perceive your physical improvements better.
Chronic mouth breathing is harming your health.
If you are one of the people that have trouble breathing through your nose, then try to focus on improving your health, as this is a possible cause for inability to nose breathe.
Inflammation causes your airway in your nose to constrict.
This could even be an issue from an unknown food allergy, or other allergen.
Some people have had to move into a different house to escape their chronic issues. Just don't give up on your health, and ask the Father to help you see what you need to know.
Don't put it off for too long, seeking better health, because the longer you wait the harder it may be to find simple health.
Something interesting that may be worth looking into;
It has been documented that over time, more and more modern people have become chest breathers, and research is saying that the best way to breathe is from the stomach/bottom of the lungs rather than the top with shallow breathes.
Breathing slower rather than quickly is also preferred.
The world has mistakenly taught that the point of breathing is to absorb as much oxygen around us as possible, and that co2 that we exhale is a waste product, though the truth is co2 is just as important for us as oxygen and modern breathing habits are causing us to be out of balance with oxygen and co2.
Breathing is crucial and can not be ignored if you want to reach full health and heal quickly.
This can have a surprising effect on your oxygen levels and health.
Even sleeping on your left side has a different reaction in your body than sleeping on your right side.
Many sleep issues can also be corrected simply from changing sleep position.
I will post more information on this later.
Sometimes you may experience symptoms that can be relieved by sleeping more upright, like in an incline bed. This can be difficult to accomplish comfortably without something like a hospital bed.
You may also encounter other problems while trying to accomplish this, such as improper body flow while sleeping.
If you decide to buy an "electric bed" such as an adjustable tempur-pedic bed, please keep in mind that while those adjustable beds are very fancy, you have to watch out for the memory foam mattresses.
I imagine they are expensive, yet they only last for a number of years before they wear out and this wear is not covered by a warranty because the material they use to make the memory foam mattresses is fully expected to wear out with use and become softer and softer quickly. Heavier people will wear the mattress out even faster.
However I do not recommend that you sleep in an incline position too much since I am unsure how natural it is.
I have concerns with saliva placement in your mouth during the night(you need saliva on your teeth and laying flat at night will put it in different places compared to always sitting up.)
Also I have concerns about bones and spinal pressure and do not want to cause symptoms from following an unnatural habit.
