DOWNS SYNDROME

Caused by a genetic defect. These children or young adults suffer frequently from sinusitis and increased susceptibility to infection. Adenoids and tonsils are enlarged along with a swollen palate of the mouth, often making the tongue protrude from the mouth. Lymphatic congestion can often be seen on the neck area.


MLD therapy is given intensively to start, including intra-oral drainage of the mouth to reduce palate swelling. The results of the therapy are excellent: the immune system functions better, therefore reducing susceptibility to infection (no colds after several months). The palate of the mouth is reduced with MLD treatment thus the patient's facial appearance will reform. Cerebral lymph congestion is relieved and the occurrence of epileptic fits is reduced.
