How Does Sleep Apnea Lead To Hypertension

How to Treat Sleep Apnea Naturally

Hi, my name is Troy Giles. I am a of Chiropractic and a Natural Internist. Today I wanted to talk to you a little about apnea,and sleep apnea. This is a major issue in the world. People are having trouble sleepingand there are many reasons for apnea. One is neurologic, where the nerves, the brain,the connection to the lung is not working correctly. Also, thyroid we find, thyroiddysfunction, where low thyroid. Thyroid is what helps you control your breathing patternswhile you are asleep. If you have low thyroid, the thyroid affects the heart and the rhythmof breathing. So low thyroid can affect it as well. But, apnea is when you can't breathwell. Your sleeping and you just stop breathing.

There can be constrictive apnea as well, whereyou have enlarged tonsils, or your throat is closed down. I had a patient that had,this has been probably ten years ago, had a roto rooter, if you will, where they went in down on thetrachea, the throat, removed the tonsils and literally removed and widened the trachea,all the way down through his neck, through his throat. Extremely painful, literally hewished he could have died. That ultimately, still didn't help any. He can get better air,bit still he is on a CPAP machine. The treatment for it, medically, is to use a CPAP or a ByPAPmachine, which helps to force air into you and helps you to breathe during the evening.Another issue is that many times its body

habitus, enlarged gut. If you are laying onyour side and you have a larger tummy, you have to push your tummy up while you are breathing,sleeping at nighttime. Literally, you are having to lift up your tummy all night long.After a couple of hours or so, you become fatigued. The diaphragm becomes fatigued oflifting, pushing. So you just stop breathing for a minute. You can go 30 seconds, a minute,2 minutes. Finally, you gasp for air. This happens over and over and over. The CPAP helpsto force the air in you are just basically breathing easier. The sense of breathing isthere, but you are now lifting with forced air, in the abdomen, and in to your lungs.So to treat this, naturally, we want to look

at supporting the lung tissue. We want tosupport anything that is going to help you to get rid of inflammation through the throat.We want to treat the thyroid and the adrenal glands to have them up and running the waythey should so they are giving good information to the heart and to your breathing pattern.We would do this through supplementation. The supplementation we would want to looktowards would be the adrenal glands first, Adrenex. We would support the adrenals withAdrenex. Thyroiden to support the thyroid tissue. Thyroid again, we want to get itsmetabolism and its function the way that it should. Permalung helps to bring clarity,helps to remove sluggishness of the lungs,

bronchial congestion, mucus. A lot of timesthere is a mucus build up throughout the lung. Even with that we would want to look towardsleaky gut syndrome because when you have leaky gut, you are actually leaking toxins throughthe gut and they overwhelm the liver and its ability to detoxify. So a lot of the overalltoxins will come up and out through the lung. So you will have a lot of increased amountof toxin and production of mucus, so you will tighten up as well. So, asthma and apnea alsowork together. So, you want to see if you can't get rid of some of that tightness andcongestion that you feel. I would work with the diet, just helping, just eating more greenleafy vegetables. It is so vital to eat green

leafy vegetables every meal. So how do eatgreen leafy vegetables for breakfasté I would encourage you to get a significant blender,Vitamix is a good one, Blendtec is another one, Montel Williams I think has one thatis a good like two horsepower motor, that you can put in all the kinds of fruits thatyou want, green leafy vegetables, like kale, baby spinach, literally any vegetable thatyou want can go in there as well. If you make it correctly, it tastes very good. You haveall your fruits. You can get some of the big box stores have frozen fruit. You can putthat with a banana, maybe a protein powder of some type. The one we carry here is calledLepterra. That helps make it smoother and

Sleep Apnea and Hypertension Sleep Apnea Thousand Oaks Malibu Westlake Village Ronald Popper

When a patient stops breathing, the oxygen level drops. In an effort to increase oxygen levels, blood vessels constrict, thereby increasing blood pressure and blood flow and oxygen to the brain and the heart. In addition, when a sudden arousal from sleep occurs, there is a release of adrenaline and other mediators that, over time, will narrow and stiffen blood vessels

thus leading to high blood pressure. Successfully treating obstructivesleep apnea can reverse these changes and result in lowering the blood pressure. If you suffer from high blood pressure and a sleep disorder such as Obstructive Sleep Apnea Syndrome, the two conditions may be related. Hello, I'm Ronald Popper. Thank you for watching.

Sleep Apnea Dim Light May Lead to Depression

CLARK POWELL: After years of struggling with the symptomsof sleep apnea, Jack Chapman says using a CPAP machine has changed his life overnight. JACK CHAPMAN: A complete difference in how you feel all day you wake up refreshed. POWELL: While this machinemay have helped Jack with his physical symptoms, a new study is shedding light on the psychologicalsymptoms of sleep apnea. DR. MAGALANG: In patients with obstructive sleep apnea, there is a very highincidence of having depression.

POWELL: Ulysses Magalang is a sleep expert at the Ohio StateUniversity Wexner Medical Center. He says half of all patients with obstructive sleepapnea also have depression. And now, as subtle as it may seem, they may have found one ofthe reasons. DR. MAGALANG: Light at night, even low levels of light, may actively suppress the secretionof melatonin. POWELL: And in lab experiments with mice, that led to depression and anxiety.Rooms like this may seem fit for sleep, but

there are several problems. TV's can causesignificant sleep disruption, and even when they're off, lights from control boxes cancause problems. So can alarm clocks. Even though the experiments were done in mice,researchers say the evidence is compelling enough to prompt changes in humans. DR. MAGALANG: If youhave obstructive sleep apnea, it would be better if you can sleep in a darkened environmentand avoid even low levels of light. POWELL: Jack says his sleep apnea hasn't caused depression,but he appreciates the fact that researchers

are shedding new light on how important itmight be to sleep in the dark. At Ohio State's Wexner Medical Center, this is Clark Powellreporting.
