After A Lifetime Of “Mouth Breathing”, This Strange Invention Finally Helped Me Breathe Through My Nose With Ease (I Can’t Believe Nobody’s Talking About This!)

By Laura Bannet | March 20, 2022

Let me get one thing straight: Never have I ever enjoyed exercise.

I’ve always struggled to get deep, satisfying breaths through my nose… so for most of my life, I’ve breathed through my mouth.

Apparently, this isn’t exactly ideal for exercise. Even a short jog around the block used to make me feel like I was breathing through a bent straw. Who could possibly find that enjoyable?!

But when my second daughter was born, I had a stark realization: I wanted to set a good, healthy example for my two girls. Therefore, I set myself a goal: In the next year of my life, I would run the first 5k of my life, at 39 years old.

There was only one itty bitty problem… my poor breathing habits made running absolutely miserable — I felt like I was drowning! I hated it. I loathed it so much in fact, that I started questioning whether I could run for three minutes, let alone three miles!

After struggling for a week, I gave up and went to my doctor to see what the problem was.

He told me I had a nasal obstruction, which limited my ability to breathe through my nose. He said it was bad enough to limit my life… but not so severe that I needed surgery. In other words, I was in “breathing limbo” — my condition was “life-limiting”, but not life-threatening.

My doctor said surgery would be too expensive, so my only option was to try nasal strips. I did… but they were extremely uncomfortable (and embarrassing to wear), plus they were expensive and — most importantly — they didn’t help me breathe better at all!

In the end, my doctor recommended I deal with my poor breathing by finding lighter exercise.

I didn’t want to give up, so I put running on the backburner and joined a yoga studio — something more my speed, I thought.


Even on the “easy” poses, I was sucking air and feeling like I was about to pass out. On top of that, the instructor kept screaming at me, “Breathe in through your nose!”

Excuse me? I could barely get a solid gulp of air through my mouth… how was I supposed to breathe in through my nose?!

Finally, I lost it. I marched up to the instructor after class one day and screamed:

“I can’t breathe through my nose! It feels like I’m suffocating!”

I explained the whole story with my doctor and my (failed) attempts at running. The yoga instructor raised her eyebrows like she’d heard my story a thousand times.

Very calmly, she explained that I was a “mouth breather” — something that, apparently, impacts roughly 50% of adults.

She said that many of her students had experienced this problem, and until recently, their only options were the same dead-end solutions I had already considered.

But now there was something else that could help me breathe through my nose — something more effective and more affordable: the Hale Breathing Aid.

She said the new device had just passed preliminary clinical trials, and a few of the students in my class were using it (I hadn’t noticed) — so I decided to check it out. When I saw the device was invented by a doctor at Johns Hopkins and had great reviews, I figured it was worth trying, so I ordered one.

The first time I did a yoga class with Hale, I was shocked at how well I could breathe — finally, I didn’t feel like I was drowning!

Two weeks later, I ran a full mile for the first time in years.

Three months after I started wearing it, Hale helped me cross the finish line of my first 5k. (And you know what? I didn’t even hate it!)

What is Hale, anyway?

Hale is a new nasal breathing aid that helps you instantly breathe through your nose the moment you start wearing it.

It was co-created by Dr. Patrick Byrne, chair of the Ear Nose & Throat department of the Cleveland Clinic.

After two decades as Director of the Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery Division at Johns Hopkins, Dr. Byrne was tired of seeing his patients shell out thousands for nasal surgery that they didn’t really need — so he invented Hale!

It has since won multiple innovation awards and is now trusted by ear, nose, and throat doctors around the country as the safe, affordable way to naturally stop “mouth breathing” and improve your breathing overall.

What makes Hale such an important breakthrough for “Mouth Breathers”?

Hale is the first completely discreet device of its kind that can help you comfortably breathe through your nose all day. I’ll explain why that’s important in a moment, but first a quick note on why it’s so important to breathe through your nose.

I didn’t know this, but apparently, our bodies are designed to breathe through the nose… and “mouth breathing” has a lot of negative consequences, like dry mouth, poor sleep, breathing irregularities, and more.

On the other hand, there are tons of benefits to nasal breathing1:

  • Nasal breathing naturally moisturizes the air you breathe, which protects the nose’s sensitive tissues while preventing dry mouth and dehydration.
  • Breathing through the nose filters the air before it enters the body. There are “turbinates” in your nose (but not your mouth) that filter out allergens, bacteria, viruses, and other contaminants before they can enter your lungs.
  • It protects your oral health. Mouth breathing dries out your gums, tongue, and oral cavity, which raises the acid levels in your mouth. Nasal breathing helps keep your mouth clean!
  • Reduces snoring and the chance of sleep apnea by keeping the tongue in the correct place in the mouth, which also leads to a better night’s sleep. (Note: “Mouth breathing” is associated with sleep apnea, diabetes, and heart disease.)
  • Breathing through the nose is more efficient, which allows your body to take in the proper amount of oxygen.

No wonder I was finally able to train for a 5k race once I switched to nasal breathing!

What makes Hale so effective at helping you breathe through your nose?

Hale is different from other nasal breathing devices because it’s worn inside the nasal cavity — making it more effective and nearly undetectable to the naked eye.

In fact, Hale is called the “contact lens for your nose” because it can be worn day or night, and no one will even know it’s there (my husband had no idea I was wearing it until I told him).

A clear band connects two nasal dilators (one for each nostril), providing exceptional airflow improvement without drawing unwanted attention.

Plus, Hale is completely drug-free. No longer do you have to worry about getting addicted to sprays, making last-minute pharmacy runs, or scrambling to get a prescription when you run out of medication!

Most importantly, Hale is extremely effective and works instantly. Get this: Preliminary results from independent clinical trials have proven Hale to be more effective than nasal strips — and it was even shown to be 95% as effective as full reconstructive surgery!

How does Hale work?

Hale works by sitting comfortably inside your nostrils, which allows it to directly open your nasal valve.

Since your nasal valve is responsible for 90% of breathing obstructions, Hale is able to open your blocked nasal airways, allowing for smooth, effortless breathing — even while exercising.

To start using Hale, you’ll simply choose your size (small, medium, or large) from your Hale Breathing Kit for a comfortable, perfect fit. Then, you’ll insert Hale into your nose and instantly start enjoying deep, satisfying breaths — it’s that easy!

Hale comes fitted with a spring-loaded hinge that provides gentle pressure to open up your nostril. This, in turn, helps to relieve any blockage caused by nasal obstructions, allowing you to freely breathe through your nose from the moment you start wearing it.

Plus, two cushioned pads and curved flares provide gentle support to your nasal passage, allowing you to improve your breathing in the most comfortable way possible.

Is Hale right for me?

Research suggests that as many as one in two adults breathes through their mouth. Unfortunately, this can lead to a number of health issues. Try out Hale if you:

  • Are a lifelong “mouth breather”: If you’ve always breathed through your mouth, you’ll be blown away by how amazing it feels to finally take full breaths!
  • Struggle with allergies: If pollen ranks as Enemy Number One, you might want to try breathing with Hale.
  • Struggle with eczema: Breathing through your nose helps humidify inhaled air. Therefore, if your nasal cavity is chronically dry and causing routine blockages, Hale could help.
  • Want to get back in shape: Breathing through your nose helps your diaphragm work properly. If you’re just getting back into shape and cardio days are a true struggle, breathing with Hale could help (plus, it helps improve your lung volume!).
  • Are prone to snoring: If you or your partner is constantly snoring, Hale can help. Breathing through an unobstructed nasal cavity can lower your risk of snoring and sleep apnea.

Ever since I started wearing Hale on a regular basis, I’ve had more energy, I sleep better, and I’ve actually started to enjoy exercising.

If Hale can help me fall in love with exercise, it can certainly help you. I’ve told all my friends about it, and it’s done the same exact thing for them — they’re sleeping soundly, are enjoying reduced allergy symptoms, and, like me, are now breathing through their nose around the clock.
