Nick Heath was diagnosed with type-1 diabetes when he was 11 years old. After reading the Oxygen Advantage at age 30, he started breathing nasally 24/7, including taping his mouth closed at night. He immediately noticed remarkable improvements in his blood sugar and energy levels. As an avid surfer, Nick has also noticed dramatic improvements in his surfing confidence and performance after regular practice of the Oxygen Advantage breathing techniques. These results inspired Nick to pursue Oxygen Advantage teacher training so he could share this practice with others. Nick completed his teaching training under Patrick McKeown in March 2018.
The improvements in Nick’s health and performance also motivated him to read the scientific literature behind the Oxygen Advantage. This allows him to share both the scientific and practical sides of the training. Nick is passionate about sharing what he has learned and experienced with the Oxygen Advantage breathing techniques.
Nick lives in Satellite Beach, FL. He holds a Ph.D. in meteorology and is currently employed as a research meteorologist.
