Episode 279: Healthy Mouth, Healthy Body: The Airway Connection
with Dr. Rebecca Taylor
Today I welcome Dr. Rebecca Taylor, who is an airway focused, biological dentist and certified naturopath. Dr. Rebecca looks to address the whole body as it relates to the mouth. You will discover why improperly developed airways may be why people have crooked teeth, sleep apnea, clenching and grinding issues, excessive snoring, and even why children struggle with cognitive and behavioral issues. Dr. Rebecca will explain how to look at facial development and proper airway function as the solution to these common issues.
