Description

BREATHING AND SLEEP - HOW HOW IMPROVING THESE HELPS YOUR CHILD'S BRAIN, NERVOUS SYSTEM AND BEHAVIOUR

Dr Rosalba Courtney ND, DO, PhD


Many parents may not be aware that their child’s breathing has an impact on their brain function, sleep quality and behaviour. Research studies have shown that children who snore or have other signs of sleep disordered breathing are much more likely to develop behavioural and learning difficulties. They are also much more likely to suffer with sleep difficulties as babies and later in childhood. Improving airway function, breathing and sleep can lead to significant improvements in the mood, behaviour and cognitive function in children. Yet this important piece of the puzzle is often overlooked. In this talk Dr Rosalba Courtney will talk about how these conditions are linked in children, why they arise and what parents can do to improve their child’s breathing and sleep.
