Carol Vander Stoep – Addressing The Cause of Obstructive Sleep Apnea, The Dangers Of Mouth Breathing, Why Biomimetic Dentistry Is Critical To Your Health, Fillings & Much More!


Carol-Vander-Stoep-bio-picCarol Vander Stoep is a orofacial myofunctional therapist clinical dental hygienist and has written a book called Mouth Matters; Healthy Mouth, Healthy Body: How Your Mouth Ages Your Body and What YOU Can do About It.

Carol Vander Stoep joined us from Austin Texas today to talk about the dangers of mouth breathing, reversing sleep apnea with orofacial myofunctional therapy.

Carol is a fascinating woman to say the least.

Here’s why I liked her so much…

She talks about a whole different side of biological dentistry than anybody else we’ve ever talked to. Sure she’s into conventional holistic dental practices like being mercury free, using ozone, removing root canals and cavitations.

For those that don’t know biological dentistry (or sometimes called whole body dentistry) takes into account how the teeth affect different organs through acupuncture meridian points in the body. Each tooth can resonate or “reflex” to different organs. Taking it a step further poor organ function can affect the health of the teeth. Our body is a whole unit. We are much more than machines. We are energetic light bodies that vibrate in space and time.

But she takes things a step further. Actually many steps further. Carol Vander Stoep talks about how our breathing can not only affect physiological processes in the body (like oxygen transfer into red blood cells and carbon dioxide regulation) but also the physical shape of the face and airway.

Is it possible to change the shape of our face by where our tongue is placed in our mouth?

Not only is it possible but she’s doing it!

Carol explained how the cause of many obstructive sleep apnea cases is inadequate airway development during children’s formative years from three particularly destructive oral postures: mouth breathing, resting the tongue on the floor of the mouth, and an incorrect swallow. A three dimensional skeletal contraction from these three habits allow the tongue to be, “A 600 pound tiger in a 3 foot cage,” she says, so people literally choke on their tongues at night.

Myofunctional therapy helps children learn correct oral posture so they attain optimal facial development, and can help adults as well as children change their airways and ”freeway space” for their tongues! Together with functional orthodontics or a dental sleep appliance like the Full Breath Solution, many people have solved their sleep apnea simply! Orofacial myofunctional therapy is very very interesting to say the very least.

We discussed how Buteyko breathing skills go hand in hand with myofunctional therapy. Buteyko breathing reverse the ravages to physiology brought about by mouth breathing.

Carol is really at the cutting edge of this field.

Kate and I would greatly appreciate that! 🙂
