    The Ride of the Zombies and other stories of sleep deprived children.

    in Family

    The American Academy of Physiological Medicine and Dentistry meeting was a real game changer for me. I look at every patient differently, I look at every health history differently. I know now what a life changing observation I can make for children who have sleep shiners, who won't behave, who have high vaulted arches and those who suck their thumb at night. That change happend mainly due to our guest today, Valerie Deegan. 


    Valarie is the mother of Connor of the compelling video I shared on the America's Dental Hygienist facebook page. At age 10 he was wishing he was dead and threatened suicide. She ignored the psychiatric advice because they ignored the findings of the allergists and sleep study. Listen to her story and post what you think about it on America’s Dental Hygienist on Facebook.  


    The ride to raise money for childhood sleep disorders is in the Chicago area in September. Click the link to find out more.

    in Health

    Gift: at the end


    Topic: Sleep


    What exactly is sleep? What is it's definition? (Wikipedia)


    How much sleep do we need to feel good the next morning?


    Rule of thumb:


    Newborns (0-3months)  14-17 hours


    Infants (4-11 months)   12 - 15 hours


    Toddlers (1-2 years)     11 - 14 hours


    Preschoolers (3-5 years)  10 - 13 hours


    School-age children (6-13 years)   9 - 11 hours


    Teenagers (14-17 years)      8 - 10 hours


    Young Adults (18-25 years) & Adults (26-64 years)   7 - 9 hours


    Older Adults (65 and over)    7 - 8 hours.


    Why is sleep so important in our lives?


    ~60% of waste products produced during sleep, body recovers, skin restores, 


    Lack of sleep: slows down healing process, motor skills are slower, tremors from lack of sleep or too much caffeine....


    Why does good sleep improve our health?


    Where do you sleep the best, your own bed or anywhere? Why? Mattress, pillow, blanket, different bed, unfamiliar room, ...


    Who decides on whether or not we sleep well?


    For children it's the parents......


    For adults..... they decide.....


    Good, deep, and solid sleeps makes you feel so good that you can say upon waking up in the morning:


    "Today is the best day of my life again!!!"


    Conclusion:


    Answer the above questions for yourself and see where you can improve.
