Championing the Recognition, Diagnosis and Treatment of Airway-Related Disorders

Breathing well is the key to wellness. A healthy, open airway can have a dramatic effect on one’s sleep, physical appearance, and overall well-being.

Are You at Risk?
Airway-Centered Disorder (ACD) is the hidden airway problem and can affect breathing 24 hours a day – including and especially during sleep.

Are you struggling with health problems such as fatigue, excess weight, headaches, chronic pain, sugar and junk food cravings, or with stress in general? Do you have a child with behavioral issues, chronic infections, allergies or asthma? Is your doctor treating you or your child for a chronic disease like high blood pressure, diabetes, obesity, insomnia, anxiety, or depression?

What if you discovered that what's driving all of these conditions is something that is rarely considered by today's medical practitioners? We're talking about Airway-Centered Disorder, or ACD. Read more.

Airway Health Success Stories


"When I had lost all hope of living a pain-free life, I learned that there are specialists out there who know their business and who care about restoring me to a quality life. My tiny airway was at the center of everything else: the pain, the joint degeneration, my intubation crises, and the consequences of all the anxiety I experienced because I couldn’t breathe easily. I’m grateful I got to tell my story for the Foundation for Airway Health website because sometimes it’s hard to believe this all happened. It did. And I hope sharing my path will help you find yours.”
-Becky's Airway Story

What is ACD?

Airway-Centered Disorder (ACD) impacts how we breathe because it increases the amount of effort we put into breathing just to survive. When not recognized, the expressions of the ACD are treated and the underlying disorder remains.

Risk Factors

No age group is immune from poor airway health. Often associated with older, obese men, ACD or other manifestations of poor airway health can be present in infants, children, teens, young adults, and slender women!

Treatment Plans

We believe that opening one’s airway can have a dramatic effect on the ability to function in everyday life, on one’s physical appearance, and on overall long-term health. We also believe that ACD, in its various forms, is a missing link in medicine today.
