How to Improve Your Memory (hint: Breathe!)

Alternate nostril breathing techniques fall into that category. I’ve never seen the kind of convincing studies that have proven many of the other claims around CBTs. But now we have the YOU docs – Drs. Mehmet Oz and Mike Roizen making some pretty bold claims around improving memory using left nostril breathing in the ezine “healthzone.ca.”

And left-nostril breathing improved spatial memory scores in kids by 43 per cent.” What is really quite fascinating is that right nostril breathing had no effect (on those tests).
