Airway and Sleep Disordered Breathing, Tongue Ties, and More with Carmen Woodland
In this episode, I sit down with Carmen Woodland, Orofacial Myofunctional Therapist and Nutritional Therapy Practitioner, who runs a global virtual practice specializing in airway & sleep-disordered breathing, tongue ties, and wellness/digestion/lifestyle support. Carmen works with people and children of all ages to address a wide range of issues including the areas of breathing (mouth-breathing, snoring, sleep apnea, etc.), habit correction, sleep promotion strategies, eustachian tube dysfunction, TMD support, as well as the most complex cases of orofacial myofunctional disorders. This interview is packed to the brim regarding disordering breathing and why mouth breathing is a massively overlooked yet underrated problem, and how the dots are still not connected by many as they continue to suffer from a wide range of health conditions/diseases. Carmen gives us a major breakdown on why nasal breathing is so critical for optimal health, and we get into detail about conditions like sleep apnea.We also take a deep dive into tongue ties, as she enlightens us on all things from common signs, implications, surgical releases, early facial development, frequently asked questions, and more. She gives us examples of what she's seen in her practice, and we talk about how and why conventional dentistry/medicine in general has collectively bypassed this area of concern for many. Carmen's expert approach and guidance has helped countless people and children find their way towards healing and optimal health, and she is full of encouragement as she enlightens us on real, tangible solutions.Carmen's Website: https://www.myofunctionaltherapy4u.com/Getting Started Guide: https://www.myofunctionaltherapy4u.com/free-tools/Carmen on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/thetonguetrainer/Book Reference, Breath by James Nestor: https://a.co/d/6ireVHVShow Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/well.with.vanessa/Vanessa Lopez on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/thegiftofgoods/Vanessa's Linktree (Discounts etc.): https://linktr.ee/thegiftofgoodsEmail: email@example.comHelp Abused and Homeless Animals in Need CUDDLY helps give animals a healthy life and a loving home, as they work with rescues worldwide!Disclaimer: This post contains affiliate links.
