Agree or disagree and why? And how do you think these challenging times have affected our children?
"Youth entitlement seems to have reached epidemic proportions in both my family and society as a whole- and I was appalled to realize that I, like many of today's well-meaning parents, am a primary carrier of the germ.
With the greatest of intention and on the name if Love, we have developed a tendency to hover, race in to save, protect from failure, arrange for success, manipulate, overprotect, and enable our kids. "

Amazing conversation with my dear colleague, friend, and mom Dr. Lori Baudino, bc-dmt about wholistic way of practicing and collaborating. Dr. Baudino has been a practicing clinician for over fifteen years. She received her doctorate in Clinical Psychology and Masters in Creative Arts Therapy - Dance/Movement Therapy, the therapeutic use of movement to further the emotional, cognitive, physical and social integration of the individual.
We talked about how important the mouth @ tongue is in so many aspects of brain development.
Listen and ask us your questions.
So excited to be talking with my dear friend and colleague, Dr. Lori Baudino on my Instagram live @drsherrysami. We’ll be talking at 10 am PST. We will be discussing how sensory processing issues affects physical, emotional, and mental aspect of a child, as well as how nutrition, sleep, airways, tongue and lip ties affects sensory processing issues.
Dr. Lori Baudino has been a practicing clinician for over fifteen years. She received her doctorate in Clinical Psychology and Masters in Creative Arts Therapy - Dance/Movement Therapy, the therapeutic use of movement to further the emotional, cognitive, physical and social integration of the individual.
As the National Clinical Spokesperson for The Andréa Rizzo Foundation, and with their funding, Dr. Baudino brought the first Dance/Movement Therapy Programs to the top pediatric hospitals in Los Angeles, where she provides bedside therapy to children with cancer, special needs and terminal illness. Dr. Baudino has specialized in supervising, facilitating and providing treatment for children with special needs and their families. She has worked in psychiatric hospitals and rehabilitation centers for trauma, addiction and pain management. Dr. Baudino has also coordinated Behavior Intervention Programs within the home/school setting.
In her private practice, she works with children and their families to support the developing child and the integral relationships between parent, child and siblings. Understanding the premise that the body, mind and spirit are interconnected and that life is experienced through movement, Dr. Baudino’s approach allows the child to put words into action, understand individual sensory and motor preferences, express emotional needs, and support overall integration and well-being.
Dr. Baudino is also a published author, leveraging her love of travel with her expertise in child behavior to create the best-selling book, Super Flyers: A parent guidebook for airplane travel with children.

So excited to be talking with the extraordinary Lori Bregman, the renowned doula, life coach, author of Mamaste and The Mindful Mom To Be and co-founder of Seedlyfe Superoods.
This is such a challenging time for new moms and moms to be, and yet the energy that these babies are bringing with them is beyond what we have witnessed before. What do we need to know to bring the brightest light out during pregnancy and after? What are some of the supports that you can get to manifest their full potential?
It’s so exciting to be talking With Lori and explore together things that can be of service to these beautiful and magnificent babies and their incredible moms.
With over 19 years of experience, Lori works with moms-to-be and new moms on all aspects of their personal transformation from fertility through pregnancy and into new motherhood. She is unique in her innate ability to blend spiritual coaching, healing and intuition which are fully integrated into her Doula practice. The delivery is just one part of the journey of birthing not only a healthy baby but also a healthy mother. Lori cultivates a strong relationship with her clients by supporting them throughout the entire process – before, during and after the birth.
She is the founder of popular “Mindful Mom-To-Be Virtual Group Coaching Program”, a complete mind, body and spirit support program that helps women throughout pregnancy and birth as they transition into new motherhood. Throughout her career, Lori has studied with and learned from some of the most renowned healers and spiritual teachers across the world. These teachers have shared with her their wisdom, from spirituality, intuition, body/mind awareness, herbs/vitamins, aromatherapy oils and the healing power of foods to doula work, bodywork, yoga, and numerous other forms of holistic healing.

Don’t forget: today (Tuesday 7/28) at 9:30 am, join me and my wholistic Endodontist friend, Dr. Val Kanter, to discuss root canals. It will be on Instagram live. My Instagram name is @drsherrysami. See you then! 💕🙏
Join me and Dr. Sherry Sami, wholistic pediatric dentist, as we talk about children's health, their mental and emotional well being. Why taking a holistic approach is so vital to serving children, particularly during this pandemic while schools are shutdown.
Dr. Sherri Sami is a dual trained specialist in orthodontics and pediatrics who has dedicated her career to changing the way we treat and perceive crooked teeth in kids. Don't miss this live Q&A discussion we will explore what every parent should know to raise healthy kids with straight healthy teeth with the tools of functional dentistry. RSVP below and leave questions in the comment section below.
Frenectomy procedures (tongue tie releases) have come a long way since I started 13 yrs ago. Many programs teach it now, and many colleagues like @breathe_institute have done an amazing job to add to our research and studies to show the benefits.
One thing that is still missing sometimes is the mindfulness and understanding of the rest of the body. Most people when they do the frenectomies, they just release the tissue, and do all of them at once, or do it before checking the body to see what else is going on in the body.
Over the years, and after doing over 10k frenectomies, and working with many osteopaths and Craniofacil-sacral therapist I’ve learnt a few things.
1. If the neck has Torticollis, asymmetric neck, if it’s not addressed ahead of time, it would cause the tongue to reattach asymmetrically.
2. Osteopathically speaking, lip & tongue should not be released simultaneously.
3. In cases like this baby, with such a tight upper frenulum and almost no upper ridge, upper jaw and mid-face significantly under-developed, released tongue has nowhere to go. (We released the upper. Within only a week, his upper jaw and mid-face changed so much that even grandma and grandpa commented on how his face developed so much in only 3 days. Then next week, we released the lower.)
4. If baby is older than 6 weeks, working with lactation consultants to teach the baby how to nurse correctly is very important.
5. If mom has a lot of milk, most often frenum issues are missed till kids start having other airway, sleeping, speech, eating, digestion, gag-reflex, or dental crowding, and other issues.
6. Stretches after is very IMPORTANT. Otherwise it would reattach.
7. Body work is a MUST before and after. The fascia runs through the whole body, and tightness is in the ENTIRE BODY, not just in the mouth.
8. Posterior tongue ties are often missed.
If you know a new mom or a pregnant mom that you think they would benefit from learning these info, or an open-minded pediatrician, ENT, lactation consultants, midwives, osteopath, or a cranio-sacral therapists tag them and share this info. You are going to make a huge difference in their lives.
So many of you contacted me and told me how much you enjoyed and learnt from our conversation with my dear friend, colleague, and an incredible wholistic pediatrician, Dr. Pejman Katiraei, @wholistickids . Since both of us are passionate about helping and teaching, he’s coming back. Please join us on Tuesday, May 5th, to have a thought-provoking conversation that get us thinking about what we hear in the news, facts VS. Fake news, and how to elevate ourselves and our kids to rise from fear to LOVE. Send me your questions ahead of time, and I’ll make sure to discuss it. #consciousparenting, #wholistichealth, #consciouschitchat, #pauseandlove #pauseandreflect #covid_19, #whatscienceteachus
So excited to be talking to my amazing friend and @lovebutton ambassador, Lou Harvey Zahra, parenting coach, author of 5 parenting books, including “happy children, happy home”, “growing children’s, thriving children”, a book that my beloved @drhabibsadeghi and I have had the pleasure of writing a forward to. Tune in on Thursday at 5:30 Pm PST for our talk with Lou! @happychildrenhappyhome, #consciousparenting #consciousparentingincoronatime, #consciousparentingtools #pauseandlove @lovebuttonorg #lovingparentingandselfcare
I need to add the crazy hours of sleep to this list too. Please KNOW, if you’re not sleeping between 10 pm-4 am, you’re missing out in a very important part of your brain getting pumped from toxins (glymphatics), memory restored, digestive tract cleansing itself ((if you don’t eat right before you go to bed), trauma being made sense of, and so many more amazing functions. Although there’s no schedule, this is NOT the time to eat crappy food, drink lots of alcohol, sleep at 4 am and wake up in the afternoon, or take medication with every little discomfort. Your children need between 10-12 hrs of sleep, yes specially your teenagers. Build your immune system. That’s your biggest weapon!!! No mask, gloves, hand sanitizer, or even staying at home all the time can fully protect you (they have had cases in Italy that the virus went through the ventilation system from 1st to 15th floor). Please use this time to build your immune system physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually.
Please listen to our interview on Dr. Sami’s live Instagram @drsherrysami with one of our favorite wholistic pediatricians, Dr. Pejman Katiraei, about how to protect ourselves from Corona Virus, as well as what to do if you have it. The important information shared today could save a trip to the emergency room, or save someone’s life. Please share & spread this valuable knowledge.
You know we always emphasize nose breathing. This time more than anytime, it’s important to make sure you clean your nose, as much as your hands as this virus thrives in the respiratory system.
Here are some tips for you and your family during these challenging times. Remember, we are all in this together. Much love and blessings of health to all of you.
Come and celebrate a uniquely inspiring night with Rumi poetry with #Colmanbark, honoring our incredible love ambassadors Linda and Kurt Rambis @lrambis and a few remarkable substantial musicians & artists (can’t announce them yet), food, drink, dancing, silent and live auction, and most importantly LOVING.

Upper ties are frequently missed and overlooked. Over the last 13 yrs that I have been doing frenectomies (releasing the tethered tissue under the lips, cheek or tongue), this is what I have learned with my osteopathic/Craniosacral colleagues:
1. They can contribute to breastfeeding issues.
2. They contribute to lack of mid-face development (sinus issues, lack of nose breathing, swollen adenoids and tonsils, eyes asymmetry, lack of upper jaw development, etc).
3. The fascia (under the skin) continues through the body and can affect other parts-even legs and sacrum. Each person’s tension manifests differently.
4. It’s beyond the gap in between teeth. Some go in between teeth, and some create an overlap, and some just create a v-shaped crowded palate (instead of a wide u-shape)
5. Most pediatricians because they don’t have this training can not identify it. #educateyourdoctor #checkyourchildren #fascialrelease #craniofacialdevelopment
6. Most people with lip tie and tongue ties have MTHFR, but not all people with MTHFR have tongue tie and lip ties.
7. The scissor release without suturing most likely will reattach. Either release with sutures afterward or laser release are best complete releases. Neither of those options work for everyone. It needs to be assessed individually. #lipties #liptierevision #liptiebaby #liptieawareness

Our sweet Jan, after 6 yrs together is retiring and moving to Tennessee. First thing I told her when she told me was “I’m happy for you, and sad for us.” Jan has been such a sweet and nurturing mother-figure not only for so many little patients, but for many moms as they come and unwind in our healing center after struggling with so many challenges of our world today. I’ve been so blessed to have someone representing me and my practice who embodies Loving and strength. We will miss her very much. If you haven’t had a chance to say good bye to her, please take a moment below and write down what you appreciate about her. I know when she’ll read it, she’ll be filled with gratitude and joy for the difference she’s made in the world.
We wish her a very restful, healing, and adventurous retirement and a safe journey to her new home.
We love you Jan. 😍🥰🙏
