Julia Worrell is a Nurse whose personal experience has changed the way she looks at someone’s health and how it relates to what the body needs to do in order to stay healthy, pain-free and working properly.
Her journey through developing an underbite as a child that led jaw surgery which led to a cascade of health problems including snoring, weight gain and the inability to concentrate, put her on a personal quest to find answers for what she was struggling with.
Being an ER nurse she sees many patients in crisis, and it’s seeing these patients which have caused her to deeply understand the medical issues that someone deals with when the breath is brought into the body through the mouth vs the nose.
No longer is this a cosmetic issue (mouth breathers faces grow long and narrow vs round and symmetrical), this is a life-saving quest for Julia as she now spends much of her day bringing professionals together to learn the importance of proper breathing?
Did you know that nose breathing supplies oxygen to specific nerves, and mouth breathing supplies different ones? You’ll have to listen in as she breaks down why it is so important to breathe through the nose, what happens when someone doesn’t mouth breathe, and what parents of children can look for to determine if they are mouth breathing and early intervention by closing the lips and not using sippy cups and bottles.
Julia spends quite a bit of time introducing us to different doctors who teach on this topic and answers questions that parents can use to help determine if the person they are seeing is someone who is at the forefront of this branch of medicine that is changing and saving lives not by medication but by intervention!
This is an episode you won’t want to miss if you have a mouth or take care of someone that does!! Trust me.
Mouth breathing leads to many of the diseases that baby boomers are dealing with. If we want to help our generation and our children’s generation we need to look at this piece of the puzzle seriously.
