Sleep Apnea Treatment
Did you know that 1 in 3 people suffer from Sleep problems?
Causes of Sleep Apnea:
Getting Proper Sleep
Most people need about 7 to 8 hours of sleep every night. A possible cause of many sleep problems can be physical, psychological, or both. Other possible causes can be stress, medication, excessive drinking of caffeine, chronic medical conditions, or unknown factors. One thing is certain: if you do not sleep properly and adequately your total health will suffer!
Snoring and Sleep Apnea
Snoring can be a main cause of sleep problems because it interrupts breathing numerous times during the night. Many people do not realize that snoring is far from being just a funny or disruptive noise,and it is actually a symptom of a reflection of a significant medical problem. Snoring is associated with an increased risk of hypertension, as well as an increased risk of both cardiovascular and cerebrovascular disease (heart problems and strokes). Additionally, your snoring may keep your family members from their necessary good night’s sleep as well.
Complications of Sleep Apnea
Sleep apnea is a potentially life-threatening problem that affects nearly 50% of the adult population. So why is interrupted sleep so bad? Because the human body needs CONTINUOUS sleep for at least 7-8 hours. It is during this continuous sleep that the brain and nervous system go through different recuperative stages. During these recuperative stages that the nervous system helps balance the body, by helping to heal the day-to-day stresses we put on our organs organs and the tissues. Without proper sleep, your body is like a car with no brakes that is constantly running and driving hard. Eventually, it breaks down.
