What Really Causes Sleep Apnea

Sleep apnea is not really a sleeping problem but a sleeping symptom.

It’s an air obstructive pathway problem. People with sleep apnea can’t breathe because something is blocking their airway.

If you can’t breathe you can’t sleep. That’s why they use the sleep pap machine to force air.

If you have a sleep apnea, usually you have a collapsing of the back of the sinus or throat which is atrophy – a sagging tissue that can obstruct the breathing pathway.

This can come from different things.

Some people think that it is only fat people but there are skinny people with sleep apnea too and some obesity people don’t have it.

You usually don’t accumulate fat in the back of the sinuses.


What to Do

Change your diet. Avoid any milk products like ice cream even cheese because it creates swelling.

Food allergies and sugar are a big problem. If someone has this problem, they need to also get off grains and see if it will clear up.

If you have allergies, hives, asthma the best remedy is royal jelly.

Royal jelly comes from the beehive which is an excretion a fluid that the bees use to help to grow the queen bee and it neutralizes allergies.

High cortisol or high stress that can also shrink a nerve that is connected to your brain stem and goes to the back of the sinuses.

I also recommend my Cortisol Support Formulait supports inflammation, adrenal and supports the deeper cause of sinuses and you will start breathing better.

If you have allergies year round it could be a fungus growing in your sinuses.

You can work on your gut and establish friendly flora to build up the good bacteria in your gut.

I also recommend apple cider vinegar just by dropping the PH just a little teaspoon in some water everyday will it instantly increase the oxygen-carrying capacity in your body and you will breathe better.

People usually have genuinely have a problem sleeping at night. I recommend adding plants in your bedroom.
