#37 - Breathed AF with Dr Louise Oliver

In this episode of Midlife AF, host Emma Gilmour invites special guest Dr. Louise Oliver to explore the fascinating connection between breathing, menopause, and snoring. Dr. Oliver shares her expertise as a GP and breathing specialist, revealing how our breathing patterns impact our sleep quality and overall well-being. Discover how perimenopausal and menopausal hormones can affect snoring and learn actionable tips to improve your breathing for a restful night's sleep.


Key takeaways:


  • The importance of 24-hour breathing patterns: Become aware of your breathing habits throughout the day and night, paying attention to whether you predominantly breathe through your nose or mouth.
  • Breathing and sleep quality: Proper breathing during sleep helps transition the body into the parasympathetic relaxation response, allowing for essential repair and recovery processes. Snoring and mouth breathing can keep the body in a fight-or-flight state, negatively impacting sleep and overall health.
  • Addressing snoring in midlife: Explore the potential links between snoring, perimenopause, and menopause. Understand how correcting breathing patterns can significantly reduce snoring and improve sleep quality, leading to increased energy levels and overall well-being.

Join Emma Gilmour and Dr. Louise Oliver in this eye-opening conversation as they uncover the power of breath for better sleep and a fulfilling midlife experience.
