Mouth breathing can impact your child's development

Many parents are really frustrated because dentists and other allied health professionals tell them that mouth breathing is bad, but they get little guidance in how to really fix the problem in a deep way - adressing causes, contributing factors and overall health.

We need to look for multi-disciplinary solutions and parents need help understanding the big picture with all its interconnections. They also need support to get empowered to do their part in solving the problems.

The answer is not orthordontics, or breathing training, or OM or surgery or manual therapy or diet or gut repair alone. It's all of the above, applied appropriately and in the right order. I want to do my bit so Im going to start running some lectures for parents starting in June. Will post details here.
