Breathing through the mouth takes our body to the sympathetic branch. At the same time, the nose holes engages the parasympathetic system. This leads to different complaints in the body! This causes prolonged mental tension and breathing system difficulties. Further, this also blocks the growth of new tissues after some physical exercise."
