Mouth breathing and its effect on Childhood Development:
Mouth breathing is a common habit, present in more than 50% of children. It is caused by airway obstruction or small airway size. Common risk factors include swollen adenoids and tonsils or a blocked, stuffy nose.
Breathing through an open mouth is extremely detrimental to the development of the face, teeth, and upper airways. Left untreated in childhood, the habit results in abnormal facial features and smaller airways in adulthood. This perpetuates poor breathing habits and leads to a lifetime of health issues.
When a child mouth-breathes, the brain receives insufficient oxygen. Long term, this has been proven to have a direct impact on cognitive ability, learning, and behaviour.
Mouth breathing at night can result in sleep-disordered breathing with problems such as snoring and sleep apnea. No child should ever snore.
In this seminar, Patrick will guide parents and educators through the theoretical and practical application of the Buteyko Method to improve children and teenagers’ health.
Exercises can be applied for children aged 5-16 years old.
