June 2015 Newsletter

profile pic 1 3

Hello Kevin Boyd, 

The month of May has come and gone in a flash. So much so that our latest newsletter is reaching you at the later time of June.


One of last month’s highlights was my interview on RTE Radio 1’s John Murray Show for World Asthma Day (5th May). The show was a great platform from which to share information about Buteyko breathing and its many health benefits. The interview led to a rise in enquiries from the Irish public and bookings for upcoming Buteyko courses for both children and adults alike.  

I‘ve been busy working with many international clients throughout the month, as well as making final edits to new online videos and my book ‘The Oxygen Advantage’ which will be released in September.  I’ve also spent time updating a new edition of my seminal book ‘Close Your Mouth’.

In June I am delivering more sold-out Buteyko courses in Dublin and Cork, as well as travelling to Tallinn in Estonia to deliver an AOMT/Buteyko Clinic Advanced course in Buteyko Breathing Re-Education for Myofunctional Therapy.

As always I hope you enjoy reading our newsletter. Each month we are delighted to welcome new subscribers from all over the world. We now are a growing community of 11,000+ members interested in Buteyko breathing and all of its related topics.

Feel free to contact us at to share your thoughts about the newsletter and any ideas or innovations from your part of the world.

Best wishes,


Interview on RTE Radio 1's John Murray Show  

John Murray

I was delighted to be invited to speak on this radio programme on World Asthma Day. The John Murray Show is a respected and widely listened to morning show on Ireland’s national broadcaster RTE Radio 1. Ireland, as some of you might know, has the 4th highest prevalence of asthma globally, so it is a topic that affects many individuals and families. 

During the interview I explained my path into learning and teaching Buteyko as well as outlining the science behind Buteyko breathing. I was accompanied by Caitriona, a client of mine with lifelong coughing asthma. She explained how learning Buteyko had helped her to overcome symptoms of her asthma and gain control over it. Another former client, Geraldine, also rang in to the programme to comment on her ‘miraculous’ experience with Buteyko, both for herself and her son who suffered Asthma. All in all, the programme was another positive step in changing public attitudes to the treatment of asthma and giving the public information on natural alternatives for better and more empowered personal health.

What if your child's face is not developing normally? How do you recognise the signs and symptoms of poor facial growth? 

Blog by Dr. Tony O’Connor

Cork-based dentist Dr. Tony O’Connor is determined to establish positive nasal breathing patterns in his patients and eliminate the all too common destructive "mouth breathing" patterns, which are now proven to profoundly and negatively affect one’s health and facial development. In the second part of this blog post Tony explores the importance of early intervention in facial growth:

How do we recognise if our child’s face is not developing normally?

Children’s faces are growing and developing quickly, by the time the child is 5 years old the face is 70% grown, by age 12 the mid-face is 100% grown. So the “window for intervening” if growth is not proceeding normally is short!


Some signs and Symptoms that may indicate your child’s facial growth is not proceeding normally:

-          Allergies

-          Number of times the child is on Antibiotics

-          Ear Nose Throat Infections...How often they get these?

-          Does your Child Snore?

-          Does your child sleep with the Mouth Open?

-          Any signs of Obstructive Sleep Apnoea (OSA)

-          Fainting episodes

-          Energy level of child? Hyperactive or Lethargic?

-          Attention span

-          Eating pattern

-          Bed Wetting

-          Bed movement

-          Sleep terrors

-          Non-Nutritive sucking habits

If any of the above list has ticked a few boxes re your child,then it is important to bring your child to a Dentist or Orthodontist who is trained to deal with the problems of Poor facial growth. He or she may be able to advice you,on the best course of treatment appropriate for the age of the child.

Chicago-based Paediatric Dentist Dr. Kevin Boyd to give lecture in Cork 


Dr. Kevin Boyd, Paediatric Dentist from Chicago is visiting Cork on June 29th and will present a lecture titled: "Solving Paediatric Sleep Apnea, Obesity and ADD/ADHD: Challenges for Medicine, Dentistry......and Anthropology". 

Venue: Main lecture Theatre, Cork University Hospital @7.30-9pm

Dr. Kevin Boyd, DDS, MS, has pioneered a brand new, groundbreaking medical theory called Darwinian Dentistry. By studying the prehistoric fossil remains of our human ancestors, he has developed an innovative hypothesis about the past and the future of children’s health care. Dr. Boyd, who holds an advanced degree in human nutrition and dietetics and is also working on a master’s in anthropology, has a passion for the study of medical evolution. The new approach of Darwinian Dentistry offers a useful framework for understanding modern systemic diseases. This advancement in attitude toward facial structure, bone growth, and oral hygiene can directly impact a child's sleeping habits, jaw growth, crooked teeth, and breathing patterns. Through his research, Dr. Boyd has discovered a link between infant breast-feeding and these conditions.

Dr. Boyd is a clinical attending instructor in the Paediatric Dentistry residency training program at Lurie Children's Hospital-Northwestern Memorial, where he also serves as a Consultant to their Sleep Medicine service. He serves on the board of directors for the AAPMD (, the advisory board of the AOMT ( and was recently appointed to the education committee of the American Thoracic Society. He is currently enrolled at Northwestern Illinois University as an anthropology major completing perquisite course work and research for eventual post-graduate study in Evolutionary Medicine.

This presentation will be of interest to primary care providers who evaluate children in surgery based settings, including : paediatricians, paediatric and general dentists, orthodontists and family physicians, hope to see you there.

He is offering a 3-day course in the early treatment of the mixed dentition in Canada and the USA. The course will be of interest to doctors who have asked themselves why children have to wait for all of their permanent teeth to come in crooked before they receive help, and if there was something they could do to improve that situation?

Dr. Derek Mahony’s exciting 3-day course pledges to give doctors the training needed to help such patients.
