Sleeping & Breathing Misses in the Black Community | Karese LaGuerre

Speaker 1 (17:30):

[inaudible] wow. That’s, that’s a lot of information that I never even thought about. And that I’m sure, as you said, needs to be talked about in more in the black community, but it’s, it’s so sad. It’s really so sad that information is not disseminated in the same way in the black community, as in other communities, because there’s always an assumption that we can’t, like you said, we can’t afford it, or even an assumption. I think that we wouldn’t even understand it, right. That we’re not smart enough, or we’re not, we don’t love our kids enough or we’re not. We’re just, don’t, we’re not the same, this idea that we’re not the same, that we would have different bone densities and we would have different pain threshold. All of this has not been proven right. By any science ever. And yet it is such an ingrained idea in so many people’s minds that it causes us harm. Even in something like this that we would never think, but it causes us harm because it’s like, Oh, well, they can’t, we’re, we’re, we’re not going to bother in that community because that community can’t understand it. Or they’re not going to put their practices in those communities because that’s a bad community. I might get whatever in that, you know, it’s just, there’s just the pervasive ideas are so strong and so wrong that it, it blows my mind sometimes when I think about this.

Speaker 2 (19:19):

Absolutely, absolutely. I agree wholeheartedly. And that’s definitely an issue is where they put the practices, because you’ll find that in higher end practices, that’s where they’ll talk about your options, right? And then you have no access to these higher end practices because they don’t accept insurance or they’re nowhere nearby. You got to drive for like an hour to get there. So it’s become a very, very sad case. And I’m very happy to be here and sharing more about this because I think it is important that everybody knows that you do have alternatives. You do have options, options for everything, from whether your baby’s not breastfeeding correctly, all the way through to, you know, you can’t sleep properly and you’re struggling as an adult with whatever it is, sleep apnea, snoring, grinding, while you’re sleeping. It goes from here to there. And there’s so many things you can do.

Speaker 1 (20:13):

[inaudible] tell us a little bit more about the benefits of sleeping and sleeping. Well, because I feel that that is something, especially in our society and our go, go go. I’m so busy society where if you’re not so busy, then you’re who are you? You’re nobody you’re, you’re clearly not important. Right? So in this go, go, go society, tell us the importance of sleep and how to determine how much sleep is right for each of personally, because I know that not everybody it’s not cookie cutter for everybody.
