We also provide full Posture and Breathing Assessments for which a fee is charged.
Some of the topics covered are:
"THE PRIME ROLE OF THE BRAIN, MIND AND BODY IS ON TAKING THE NEXT BREATH" Everything else is secondary.
An explanation as to the inter-relationship between all 11 body systems and their common goal to keep us breathing.
"IT MIGHT BE COMMONPLACE BUT IS IT NORMAL?"
Explaining how so many things that we feel are just part of life and can't be avoided, CAN be avoided.
"EASE OR DIS-EASE - HOW YOU CAN INFLUENCE YOUR OWN HEALTH"
This covers the interesting concept that the body will compensate for any compromise - just to ensure that we survive.
"ADDRESS STRESS - HOW TO CREATE THE POWER OF CALM"
Our bodies are designed to be in a state of recovery for longer than they are a state of alertness if we want to remain well. These two states are basically controlled by our breathing patterns and rhythms and we can learn how to rebalance them so that we remain functional and healthy.
"BREATHING AND SPORTS PERFORMANCE" How the way you breathe has a direct effect on your strength, stamina and performance. Dramatically improve your results by learning what constitutes functional and balanced breathing.
ROGER PRICE is also available as a before or after dinner speaker for your professional meetings and dinners, and will tailor these talks to your specific audience.
The body learns and adapts all the time and, with the total focus on ‘taking the next breath’, will do whatever is necessary to make this happen. It might be something seemingly innocuous, like tilting the head back, or to the side, or using the mouth for breathing instead of the nose, but repeating this 30,000 times a day - which is the average number of breaths that Westerners take, will cause a permanent dysfunction.
The same principle applies to breathing too fast, using an open mouth rather than the nose, sighing, gasping, snoring, stopping breathing during the day or night (apnea) to try to keep the person alive.
These are Breathing Behaviors which have to be identified and addressed if we want to arrive at a successful and stable long-term outcome.
Acute intervention works - most of the time, but does not address the cause.
Stabilization provides a short-term support but it has been proven, and widely published, that the long term use of CPAP and/or Oral Appliances, causes other problems, as the body is being forced to function in an unnatural way.
CPAP machines and Oral Appliances address the symptoms and provide short-term invasive intervention, but do nothing to address the behavior behind the problem - YET they are regarded as The Gold Standard.
Just because something is being done doesn't necessarily mean that it is the correct or best way to handle the issue.
Millions of people doing the wrong thing doesn’t make it right.
If the problem is truly more about Breathing than it is about Sleep, and that Dentists actually make “Breathing Appliances” rather than “Sleep Appliances” then it makes total sense for Dentists and their support teams to become educated and trained in the following areas of musculoskeletal and other allied functional systems of the rest of the body
There have been several organizations and individuals who have been teaching various forms of these topics for several years, but what has been lacking has been
- Standardization of course content
- Formalized protocols so that everyone speaks the same language
- Adequate qualifications for training
- Lack of uniform Certification - each organization having their own criteria and standards
- Unified Peak Body to oversee codes of conduct, ethics, behavior, advertising and claims
There is now a solution to these issues.
The Graduate School of Behavioral Health Sciences, a Registered University in the State of Wyoming, now offers three programs. For program details, visit this portal where new and existing students can view course details and register (please scroll down from the top of the page to find the courses).
All are delivered online through the University.
All are live interactive Webinars.
All are recorded for later viewing or revision should any be missed.
