I was told that enlarged adenoids could weaken a child’s mental capacity. Should they be removed to prevent this?

According to Dr. Novozhilov, it is not the adenoids, but hyperventilation that can damage brain development. To prevent this and other negative impacts of hyperventilation, the child’s body creates a defense mechanism to make them breathe less – in this case, by enlarging the adenoids. It does not make sense to fight against this defense mechanism, but it is necessary to eliminate the root cause of the problem, which is over-breathing. The Breathing Center assists children and their parents in doing this.
