Sleep apnea is one of the most common sleep disturbance problems in America. It ruins the sleep of an estimated 25 million Americans on a regular basis. The condition prevents the sleeper from entering REM and Delta sleep causing them to become anxious, cantankerous and tired during the day. There are very serious health consequences of prolonged sleep deprivation. Additionally, due to the nature of the condition, it causes blood oxygen levels to be lower than normal for very prolonged periods of time. This is damaging to the brain and heart in particular.
Sleep Apnea Relief uses natural herbs that address the cause of sleep apnea, not just the symptoms. Herbal treatment for sleep apnea begins by relaxing you so that you can fall asleep easier. The most important aspect though, is that it increases the respiration intensity so that you do not stop breathing. It facilitates deep steady breathing througout the night.
A diagnosis of obstructive sleep apnea suggests that your airway is being blocked by either a sagging soft-pallet or other tissues in your air passage way. This is very common since as we get older, these tissues are not as tight. You may notice though, while breathing through the same throat during the day, you don’t have apnea. If you lay down on your back during the day and breathe you will also notice that you do not have a problem. The problem only occurs when you drift off to sleep. Why? Because the cessation of breathing is the real cause of the problem, not the sagging airway. Sleep Apnea Relief, addresses this by maintaining steady breathing.
The reason that the obstructions cause a problem when you are drifting off to sleep but not when you are awake is the subtle key issue that medical science is missing. You brain reduces the intensity of the signals to your skeletal muscles when you go to sleep so that you don’t physically act out movements when you are dreaming. As we get older, the diminished integrity of the nerve boundaries in our spinal column cause some other signals to be diminished un-intentionally. The signal to your diaphragm which sets your respiration rate and intensity diminishes. It often diminishes to the point where you stop breathing all-together. This causes your blood oxygen level to decrease. When the carbon dioxide build-up in your blood reaches a point where it is dangerous, your brain causes you to take an immediate deep breath. This deep-fast breath literally sucks the sagging tissue into the airway and causes a “snort” and wakes you or disturbs your sleep.
So you see, it is the cessation of breathing that aggravates the tissue blockage problem. If you didn’t draw that fast-deep-breath the obstruction would not occur. However the REAL problem is the cessation of breathing. If this did not occur, your sagging soft palate and weak airway tissue would not be a problem. And, if you fix the breathing cessation problem, you won’t have to worry about your sagging soft palate.
