Healthy Breathing Healthy Child with Dr Rosalba Courtney

Breathing issues, such asthma, allergies, snoring, sleep apnea, enlarged adenoids and tonsils are very common in children in modern society and appear to be increasing. These conditions are often accompanied by dysfunctional breathing such mouth breathing, breathing pattern disorders and hyperventilation.
The way a child breaths can influence the function of their brain and nervous system, their structural development and their overall health. Many children have breathing issues that are either undetected or inadequately treated.

Conditions such as anxiety and ADHD with symptoms such as inattention, hyperactivity, or impulsivity are also on the increase in children and these can also be associated with breathing issues, particularly sleep disordered breathing but also asthma, respiratory allergies and mouth breathing [1-3]. Children’s posture and facial development is also strongly affected by their breathing.

By recognizing and correcting these breathing issues in children we can help them improve their health and achieve their potential.

Join Dr. Rosalba Courtney to learn about the following and more:
– How common breathing disorders in children impact on mind, body and behaviour.
– Recognising the signs of disordered daytime and night-time breathing in children.
– Breaking vicious cycles of breathing dysfunction.
– Knowing where to start and how to get help
