Yes: The nose is an air processor. It warms, filters and humidifies the air you breath so that when it gets to your lungs it is clean, warm and moist - just the way the lungs like it. By mouth breathing your lungs have to work harder because the air hasn't been processed. ...Read more

It seems whenever I do the "finger-to-nose" exercise only my lazy left eye moves. Is that weird?

Eye movements: Interesting! When you look to the left, right, up and down, do your eyes move the same way? If so, you may simply not be converging normally. If not, there could be something wrong with that muscle or the nerve to that muscle. You should see an ophthalmologist. ...Read more
