Hey, guys. Axe, here, of naturalmedicine and founder of DrAxe . In this tutorial, I'm going to go through a sevenstepprocess on how to overcome sleep apnea. If you struggle with sleep apnea, snoring, insomnia,just trouble sleeping at night, these tips are going to help you big time. The number one thing you've got to start doingif you want to overcome sleep apnea is look at your diet. Now, sometimes sleep apnea canbe related to weight gain. It can be related to inflammation in different areas of yourbody. But if you can follow these dietary tips, it's going to help tremendously.
The first thing you want to do is you reallywant to focus on supporting your metabolism. You want to focus on getting three thingsevery single meal: good quality protein, healthy fat, and fiber, those three things. Most peoplewith sleep apnea, most people tend to consume too many carbohydrates and too much sugar,which can actually affect your insulin levels and your metabolism, which causes sleep apnea.So again, healthy protein, such as bone broth protein, organic chicken and turkey, wildcaughtfish, grassfed beef, getting good quality protein is important. Number two, fiber, getting more vegetablesand fruits in your diet and wholesprouted
grains, such as brown rice, that's where youwant to get your fiber. The healthy fats, things like coconut oil, olive oil, organicnuts and seeds, those are some ways to get some good healthy fat in your diet. So again,focus on a healthy diet, a diet that's antiinflammatory and that helps balance out insulin levelsis going to be big when it comes to beating sleep apnea. Number two, there are certain things you wantto avoid. If you have sleep apnea, you want to avoid intake of alcohol, caffeine, smoking,and also you need to be aware of sedatives. If you're taking sedatives on a regular basis,that can really cause sleep apnea. Stay away
from those things. If you're saying to yourself,quot;Well, I'm still going to do caffeine and alcohol,quot; then what I would do is not do coffee.I would just do a little bit of tea, like a green tea during the day. So again, just tone it down some. The otherthing I would do is, if you're drinking alcohol, limit it to one glass. When you start doingmore than one glass, more than one beer, more than one glass of alcohol, that's really goingto affect your sleep cycle. And no more than two days a week. Again, bring the alcoholdown, because that will absolutely cause sleep apnea.
The number three tip is to treat acid reflux.Many people with sleep apnea have heartburn, GERD, or acid reflux, or some type of digestiveissue that's causing their sleep apnea. Now, the way to overcome that is to follow thesedietary tips. You want to eat smaller meals, so you don't want to overeat, and get moreorganic meat, vegetables, and fruits. You've got to be careful overconsuming thegrains, the pastas, the breads, the chips. All of those things will really cause acidreflux and sleep apnea. Also, supplementing with digestive enzymes, probiotics, and applecider vinegar. So probiotics, enzymes, and apple cider vinegar, all of those can helpin the natural treatment of acid reflux and
reduce sleep apnea. The number four thing you want to considerdoing to beat sleep apnea is getting a humidifier in your bedroom. Oftentimes, it's the humidityor being too dry in the bedroom that actually causes sleep apnea. So look into getting ahumidifier and sometimes an air purifier. So a humidifier, an air purifier, those thingscan actually help support your body and you breathing better and overcoming sleep apnea. Number five is your sleeping position. Manypeople with sleep apnea sleep on their back. Some of them sleep on their stomach. You wantto sleep on your side. What you want to do
Will Obesity Reverse Rise in US Life Expectancy
bjbjLULU GWEN IFILL: Public health expertshave long warned of a growing obesity epidemic in America. This week, government officialsand others have launched a major campaign, warning those longfeared consequences areat hand. In a 474page report, the Institute of Medicine called for systemic policy changes,from overhauling farm policies and the way food is marketed, to building more walkableneighborhoods, to ensuring children get at least 60 minutes of physical activity a day.Our Health Unit has an indepth look tonight, beginning with a Ray Suarez report on therising toll. RAY SUAREZ: Americans are fat and continue to get fatter. Today, two outof three adults in this country are overweight
or obese. ROSS HAMMOND, Brookings Institution:In 1960, the average height for a man was 5'8'', and the average weight was 165 pounds.Today, the average height for a man has gone up one inch to 5'9'',and the average weighthas gone up 25 pounds to 190 pounds. RAY SUAREZ: One of the most striking things about thischange is that most people are aware of it, understand what causes it, yet nothing seemsto stop it. MRC GREENWOOD, president, University of Hawaii System: In spite of the fact thatpeople get lots of information, it hasn't changed their behavior in the ways that wehave been trying to change it. So I guess it tells you that more information doesn'tnecessarily mean better behavior. RAY SUAREZ:
New research from universities, think tanksand the federal government has tried to put a dollar cost on tens of millions of poundsof excess weight, in getting heavier and heavier passengers from place to place on public transportationand burning millions of excess gallons of gasoline in private cars, and jet fuel inthe air, in lost productivity and increased absenteeism at work, and the tremendous impactobesity has on medical costs year after year. The annual price tag for all of ité One estimateputs it at $190 billion a year. TEVI TROY, Hudson Institute: The numbers are just enormous.And given our longterm budget situation, I think it's important to address this issueas soon as possible. Tevi Troy is a health
care economist and former deputy secretaryof health and human services. TEVI TROY: Well, let's look at a 12yearold kid who is aroundtoday. And between ages 10 and 12 and 22, so over a 10year window, he is not goingto change that much in terms of the cost he has on society. But if you look at a 25yearwindow, the costs that might be imposed could be potentially huge in terms of earlier izations,less productivity at work, less ability to pursue and achieve his dreams. RAY SUAREZ:Take a look at this animation from the Centers for Disease Control. It tracks the increasingincidence of obesity in America state by state from 1985 on, ending at today, with a largeswathe of the country centered on the Southeast
and Midwest in red, meaning more than 30 percentof adults are obese. Ross Hammond has been studying the economic impact of obesity forthe Brookings Institution. ROSS HAMMOND, Brookings Institution: Part of the difficulty with somethinglike obesity is that it's the accumulation of action over a long period of time thatleads to obesity. If you eat a cheeseburger today, you won't necessarily have a heartattack today. But over many, many, many days of eating unhealthily and gaining a lot ofweight, you might. And because of that time angle, it becomes harder to think about inyour daily routine what the longterm consequences are. That's harder for people. RAY SUAREZ:Just how hard is apparent to Frederick
Finelli, who, in 33 years practicing medicine,has seen a change in his 's patients. He's now the medical director of the operatingrooms at MedStar Washington Center. DR. FREDERICK FINELLI, MedStar Washington Center: Oh, my God, it's been pretty dramatic. RAY SUAREZ: How soé DR. FREDERICKFINELLI: It used to be, years ago, we wouldn't have patients over 300, 400 pounds very often.Now we're seeing them daily. And it's become an operational problem at times. RAY SUAREZ: Finelli's specialty is bariatric surgery, limiting the size of the stomachs of severelyoverweight people. The scales in his office are specially built to handle patients hundredsof pounds overweight, as are the exam tables,
