The physiology of one’s body can have a significant effect on how a person breathes during the day and on the quality of sleep they have at night. Some biological abnormalities can cause difficulty breathing, especially when a person is asleep and cannot consciously regulate their own breathing. When breathing is disrupted or inhibited, the flow of oxygen to the body is lowered and the risk of dangerous, long-term consequences increases. This lowered level of oxygen can impact the brain, heart, respiratory system, immune system and much more.

Dr. Laurel Morello has received advanced training in airway development and maintenance, allowing her to assess and diagnose your airway development for any problems that may be impacting your sleep, health and quality of life. There are a number of treatments available to improve your ability to breathe normally and help maintain your airway. These treatments range from lifestyle changes such as nutrition and exercise to appliance therapy. Airway treatments are available for young children who need early intervention as well as for adults looking to treat and correct their own respiratory problems.

Before & After ALF Treatment on a 30-year-old man:

Anxiety, fear, trouble swallowing and extreme difficulty with social interaction were just a few of the chief concerns of this oxygen-deprived 30-year-old man. Following two years of ALF therapy with the ALF Educational Institute (AEI), the tremendous growth of his airway (red to white) is observed. More than that is the complete absence of all symptoms reported initially. This is a brain on oxygen! No CPAP or intraoral sleep and snore management methods are necessary once the body has transformed the actual architecture that caused the problems in the first place.
