Treatment for Lyme Disease Sleep Disorders

I recently sat down with Cindy Kennedy, FNP, of Cindy Kennedy’s Living with Lyme Disease to discuss Lyme disease sleep disorders and how to help patients get better sleep.

Airway Centric Dentistry

I had the chance to speak with Dr. Howard Farran, FNP, of Dentistry Uncensored with Howard Farran to discuss airway health and how it affects your sleep.

"I am an Obstructive Sleep Apnea patient and Dr. Gelb literally changed my life, and maybe even saved it. After wearing the custom appliance my snoring has essentially stopped, I wake up refreshed after a good nights sleep and my wife no longer has to wear earplugs every night." - Neal

The innate immune system plays a large role in the development of and protection from asthma, as demonstrated by literature examining the low rate of asthma in children who are consistently exposed to several different environmental microbes on family farms, according to results from a literature review published in Clinical & Experimental Allergy.

Humans prefer to breathe through the nose as the air is warmed, filtered and humidified better than when mouth breathing. Unfortunately, humans have 1/10 the expected nasal area for a mammal our size. The small surface area of nasal respiratory epithelium is due primarily to the lack of a snout and a short neck as well as a short face.

The Airway Centric® Model prevents Airway-Centered Disorders, Sleep-Disordered Breathing to maintain mental and physical health. Learn how to recognize and correct Airway-Centered Disorders, Sleep-Disordered Breathing. Gasp is about our airway, breathing and sleep. Problems can start at birth. Many premature babies are mouth breathers. A poorly structured and functioning airway leads to mouth breathing, snoring and sleep apnea; it can interfere with restorative sleep and ultimately damage the part of the brain called the prefrontal cortex, which controls executive function skills, attentiveness, anxiety and depression.

Learn how to restore an ideal airway with early intervention, and where to go for help.

The problem with so many anti-aging products available today is that they only address the symptoms of aging. For example, a facelift works by pulling the skin taut and reducing the visibility of wrinkles. But, it doesn’t help what caused the wrinkles in the first place. It’s simply a bandaid at best and ignores the underlying causes of aging.

I know we can do better than that.

This is why the The Juvabite System is so effective in anti-aging. The Juvabite is a non-surgical, removable oral appliance system with injectable fillers that restore the shape of your mouth so you can breathe better.

A mother's exposure to particulate air pollution during pregnancy is associated with reduced cardiac response to stress in six-month-old infants, according to new research. This study is among the first to find that particulate air pollution exposure in utero can affect heart rate variability, which is a known risk factor for health issues.

As a dental CBCT x-ray can give your dentist an in-depth view of your teeth, jaw, gums, nerves, and sinuses – it can help detect and diagnose many diseases.

These diseases and complications include: ➡️ Airway sleep disorders such as sleep apnea
➡️ TMJ
➡️ Bone cancer, tumors, or cysts
➡️ Fractures
➡️ Tooth root infections, root canals, or other problems with the core of the tooth
➡️ Gum problems
➡️ Nasal Anatomy, include: septum, turbinates and sinuses.

The space in between your brain cells is called the extracellular space. While you sleep the space expands allowing calcium and magnesium to flow through, which helps flush out other debris from your brain. Like running the dishwasher at night, the glymphatic system flushes out build up which keeps your brain clean and clear.

The part of your brain called the prefrontal cortex is responsible for your decision making and cognitive function. But during sleep, this section of your brain – located at the front on the left – involves itself in the retention of new information you’ve learnt, and interplays with your hippocampus to solidify your memories.

Now that you know deep sleep is needed for your brain to clean out toxic build up, isn’t it easy to see how this might contribute to brain fog? Maybe it’s not the amount of sleep you’re getting, but the quality. 🔗 Click the link in our bio for more.

Curcumin is acquired from the stems of the turmeric and is widely known for its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects.

With just 1/20 teaspoon or more of black pepper, the bioavailability of turmeric is greatly improved, and turmeric’s benefits are further enhanced.

For millions of people who suffer from sleep apnea, getting a good night’s sleep is an elusive dream. Patients with obstructive sleep apnea have blockage of breathing while they sleep, leading to snoring, disruption of sleep and the drowsiness or fatigue that often occur.

The ailment also can lead to serious health problems such as high blood pressure and a risk of heart attack or stroke.

Why are we mouth breathing more? There are many reasons, including: ➡️ Habitual mouth breathing.
➡️ Smaller mouths make the tongue relatively larger in a more constricted space.
➡️ Many people have a chronic rhinitis and they have sensitized noses.
➡️ Compromised structural issues.
➡️ Infections and allergies that increase mucous production.
➡️ A congested nose.
➡️ Diet and vitamins.

Every child is unique, and although you may have been stymied by western medicine before, you may be able to improve the day to day life for your autistic child. Autism doesn’t start and end in the brain, it’s a systemic disorder brought on by a wide variety of factors – some of which can be altered.

Your autistic child may be: 👉 A picky eater, sometimes refusing foods he or she has previously enjoyed.
👉 Constantly getting out of bed, or restless at night.
👉 Anxious about going to sleep, or staying asleep.
👉 Snoring or breathing heavily when they do sleep.
👉 Struggling with embarrassing gut troubles, including diarrhea.

What would you say if I told you that these symptoms could be all connected? And there is a way to help alleviate them?

The key compounds in turmeric are called curcuminoids. Curcumin itself is the most active ingredient and appears to be the most important.

As a polyphenol, curcumin has several advantages to health. It’s a strong antioxidant and has anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and anti-fungal properties. However, one of the greatest downfalls of curcumin is that it’s not well absorbed in the body.

Black pepper contains the bioactive compound piperine, which is an alkaloid like capsaicin, the active component found in chili powder and cayenne pepper. Piperine has been shown to help relieve nausea, headaches and poor digestion and also has anti-inflammatory properties.

Still, its most significant benefit may be its ability to boost the absorption of curcumin.

How often does your child’s Pediatrician or Pediatric Dentist ask you these questions about your child’s sleep habits? If you your answer is “never” or” not often enough” then you are not alone. Pediatricians and Pediatric Dentists are the first responders to airway problems in children. Because parents aren’t asked questions about their child’s sleep habits, airway problems often go undiagnosed and children continue to suffer in silence.

Since a Pediatric dentist sees a child more often than any other health care provider they are in the best position to recognize airway problems. Sleep related breathing disorders (SRBD), is a silent health crisis, impacting 50-70 million Americans. It is not exclusive to the adult population. Because it’s not as easily recognized in children, it is often left undiagnosed. Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) is the most common SRBD in both children and adults.

The way you breathe can impact your whole body, helping to regulate important functions such as heart rate and blood pressure. It can also reinforce proper body mechanics that put less stress on your body as you move.

Deep breathing is also called abdominal or belly breathing. It involves inhaling slowly and deeply through the nose, causing the lungs to fill with air as the belly expands.

This type of breathing is associated with many health benefits, from reducing stress to lowering blood pressure.

While these benefits are widely known, the busy pace of life plus a sedentary work environment have conditioned many of us to take only quick, shallow breaths. Over time, this weakens the strength of our respiratory muscles. It also creates tension in the upper body that can alter our posture and undermine our health.
