I wanted to write to thank you for sharing your amazing breathing technique and making it so easy to learn and follow. I have had insomnia and anxiety for years, which I just assumed was ‘hard wired’. After making some simple changes – doing the mouth taping, the light breathing exercises and some of the walking / jogging exercises I feel like a completely new person. I sleep solidly through the night. I feel like I can take anything on at work and any stressor that comes up. I am no longer chronically congested and clearing my throat. I even look forward to physical exercise and have really increased my fitness level. When really relaxed my Bolt score is up to 38 from around 14. Now it seems really weird to see others at the gym heaving and grunting manically. The only challenge is trying to convince others – including trainers – that I really am working hard when they can’t see me breathing! You have shared something really valuable and special with the world and I am passing this on to everyone I know. Thank you so much.”
Mr. Mckeown, I started this technique about 2 months ago. I got your book “Anxiety Free” and it has really really helped me . I am stronger, less anxious,more at ease, I sleep better. Thank you for all of this. I look forward to my excersises every morning. I started with a control pause of 8 to ten and now I am up to between 17 and 20. I am a former smoker, 54 years old. I want to share this wonderful method with all my friends. Thank you again. This is life changing.”

“I read Patrick’s book in 2010 after being hospitalised with asthma for 4 days. It was an amazing discovery for me as within six months I was able to stop using all my medications. Most of the time I have my asthma completely under control and last Saturday I climbed Snowdon! Thanks again for helping me change my life!”

“Close Your Mouth is a great book for me because it taught me a way to breathe that was different than anything I had been taught or had practiced before. The reduced breathing techniques gave me a sense of relaxation and ease that was great. It actually felt like I was breathing correctly for the first time in a long time. Like breathing actually filled me up with oxygen to optimum levels. The tape on the mouth at night was great. After a day of using the practices I put the tape on at night and the next morning woke up and popped out of bed full of energy and feeling totally refreshed. It was amazing really. I don’t recommend putting the tape on without doing the exercises during the day first, because your body won’t know what it is doing and it will just be really uncomfortable”.

“It absolutely is unbelievable. I have been on my drugs for fifteen years and to think that something as simple as this and as cheap as this and effective could be widely available. Everybody should be doing it. Give it a go, you have nothing to lose and everything to gain’.
