Over the past week there is huge change in paradigm in the treatment options for COVID-19. And one such treatment that got my attention is NITRIC OXIDE. And do you know humans have the ability to produce this nitric oxide naturally? . . We all know the basic precaution now., we can take to stay safe through this pandemic COVID -19, to wash our hand, stay indoors and maintain respiratory hygiene and to build up immunity. . . But did you know that the base of respiratory hygiene and immunity starts from nasal breathing? . . Am a preventive pediatric dentist trained in OROFACIAL MYOFUNCTIONAL THERAPY, and I have observed over a decade that most kids unknowingly end up mouth breathing, though a lot of times we have mentioned that mouth breathing lead to crooked teeth, cavities, sleep issues and frequent respiratory infections. . . But Did you know IF CORRECTED and NASAL BREATHING IS PRACTICED it can help you during this pandemic? . . Nitric oxide has many benefits . research has proven that. However we are picking the ones that’s important in COVID pandemic below: . .

  1. Nasal breathing helps in secretion of NO – nitric oxide in our nose and airway passage, from the sinuses

  2. NITRIC OXIDE has a potent antiviral effect , studies earlier have shown that this has deleterious effects on viruses including CORONA ( studies in the 2003 SARS outbreak ) .

  3. Nitric oxide can kill the virus and give a cure as soon as the virus enters the nose . .

  4. Nitric oxide secretion can be the first line of treatment for natural defence

  5. Nitric oxide increases your IMMUNITY NATURALLY and reduces body inflammation. . This means the first step of defence , starts with proper breathing, with nasal breathing. The first step in respiratory hygiene is establishing nasal breathing. Yes eating healthy and vit D , A , C are also needed. .
