Danielle Rose, MD, NMD, SEP
OB School Faculty Member, Physician, Author, Public Speaker 

Watch two short videos of Dr. Rose's overview of Optimal Breathing from a physician's perspective. total time 2.5 minutes.  

Dr. Rose has always been fascinated with biological sciences since her graduation from Salem College and the NASA sponsored Space Life Sciences Training Program. She graduated from the Medical College of Georgia and then did an internship in Family Practice and residency in Pediatrics at Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center. After 13 years as a traditional pediatrician she began to develop an interest in alternative and complementary medicine at the urgings of her patients. She studied intuitive energy healing and then embarked upon her Naturopathic work while practicing pediatrics full time. She then opened a solo practice dedicated to holistic care for two years and pursued training in Somatic Experiencing, a trauma healing technique developed by another NASA researcher Peter Levine, PhD. She became the Medical Director of Charlotte Metro Hyperbaric in 2008.

It was through the Charlotte Metro Hyperbaric Center that she met Mike White and began studying his Optimal Breathing program both personally and as a means of helping patients maximize their healing potential while pursuing hyperbaric therapy. During their collaboration she and Mike discovered a mutual appreciation of somatic experiencing, use of oxygen and exercise, and core nutritional support to help promote healing.

One M.D.’s Prescription for Better Health

“I feel that Mike’s analysis of the breath and use of multiple techniques and exercises to shift the patient/client into a better pattern and give them the feedback to feel that pattern is exponentially helpful in their overall health. The patient/client receives almost immediate feedback as to what a proper deep breath should feel like and begins to experience the body in a new, more relaxed way. If they continue the work long enough to be able to tell when they fall back into poor patterns, then they can really begin on a journey toward healing and improved health. Mike has ‘taught a man to fish’ rather than ‘given him a fish’ which is significantly more healing because of the inner empowerment that occurs. Moreover he does it in a manner with absolutely minimal side effects, reactions or interactions, unlike most pharmaceuticals.”

“His teachings should be incorporated into the physical exam taught in medical schools as well as other allied physical and mental health programs, particularly education, speech therapy, physical therapy, and respiratory therapy. I have long been bothered by the significant variation in patients’ abilities to take a deep breath on exam but was always taught it was due to individual variation. Hindsight being 20:20, I now know their breathing mechanics were out of balance and needed some coaching to be put right. I began incorporating some yoga breathing instruction for those whose breathing was ‘backwards’ but Mike’s instruction has expanded my understanding so much more deeply.  It is my desire to help Mike find ways to get his teaching to other physicians, health practitioners and educators as a first line of intervention for many stress and cognition related approaches.”

From Mike:
This is a great beginning of being able to monitor the various functions of a modern medical system replete with magical wonders, staggering contradictions and death dealing mistakes.
We can’t use a clock or a scale or a ruler for things like being honest, persistent, kind, or tidy but with many other things in life
, if you can't measure it, you can't manage it.
