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
Obstructive Sleep Apnea
MUSIC Obstructive sleep apnea. 30 million Americans may sufferfrom obstructive sleep apnea, or OSA. It is more common thanadult diabetes and asthma, affecting 24% of men and 9% of women between the agesof 30 to 60 years of age. OSA is even more commonin overweight people and
persons older than60 years of age. It is a major risk factor for the development ofcardiovascular disease. Studies show that 80%of difficult to control hypertension, 50% ofcongestive heart failure, and 60% of strokes are relatedto undiagnosed OSA. Apnea means without breath, ifyou have obstructed sleep apnea you literally stop breathingwhile you're asleep.
The apnea can last fora few seconds to a minute or more, as many as 100 oftimes during the night. Forms of sleep apnea includeobstructive, central and mixed with obstructivebeing the most common type. OSA prevents you from reachingdeep stages of sleep, which the body needs to rest andreplenish itself. Causes ofObstructive Sleep Apnea. Even though the exact causeof OSA remains unclear,
the sleep disorderfollows a pattern. During the day muscles keepthe airway passages wide open. When a person withOSA falls asleep, these muscles relax to a pointwhere the airway collapses and causes a breathing pause. These breathing pauses occurbecause of a blockage in the upper airway. Usually when the soft tissuein the upper airway or
rear of the throat collapses. When the airway closes,breathing stops and the sleeper wakes upto open the airway. The sleeper thenreturns to sleep and the breathing pauseoccurs again. This pattern is repeated untilyou wake up for the day. Symptoms ofObstructive Sleep Apnea. OSA is most commonlyseen in overweight
people with loud snoring,breathing pauses, usually noticed by the bedpartner, daytime sleepiness, thrashing around in bed,morning headaches, a dry mouth in the morning, andgasping for breath at night. Loud snoring and daytime sleepiness are the mostcommon of these complaints. Other symptoms of OSAinclude memory problems, as well as difficultyconcentrating and thinking.
How to Win your Veterans Disability Claim Using VAs List of Presumptive Chronic and Tropical Disease
How can a chronic disease connected to active service be used for a Veterans disability claimé Hi, I'm Marc Whitehead an Accredited Veterans disability attorney. Veterans suffering from chronic diseases connected to their active service may be able to win their VA claims by using the Service Connection by legal presumption argument. For certain chronic diseases the VA automatically presumes that there a connection between the condition and the time in service, and grants the Veteran benefits. The list of chronic conditions accepted for this presumption is quiet long and includes certain types of cancer, tuberculosis, Parkinson's disease, epilepsy, and many other ailments.
Concider consulting a qualified disability attorney who can help you determine whether the VA includes your chronic condition in its list. Once you've determined that your disability is on the VA's most current list you'll need to meet the requirement of the presumptive period. Veterans need to provide Medical evidence that the condition manifested to a degree of at least 10% no more then one year after their active service ended to be able to apply for service connection based on legal presumption for their VA claims If you were diagnosed and treated with a chronic condition within the presumptive period
your case will be fairly clear cut and should be simple to obtain the service connection by legal presumption. However, if a diagnosis was made after the presumptive period you'll need a disability lawyer to provide plenty of medical evidence to successfully receive your benefits. The most important piece of evidence is to provide a medical opinion stating that it's more likely then not that your disease first manifested during the presumptive period. With a physicians opinion clearly stating that assumption you'll be much more likely to have a successful claim. How is a service connection by legal presumption used for tropical diseasesé The requirements for establishing service connection by legal presumption for tropical diseases are
quiet similar to those applied for chronic diseases. The tropical disease in question must be on the VA's list of approved list. Which includes dysentery, yellow fever, cholera, and several others specific to the military service in tropical locations. As with the legal presumption for chronic diseases symptoms of tropical diseases in question must must have been noted within one year of discharge for a successful VA claim. However, this rule can be relaxed in cases of certain diseases in which the incubation period is known to be longer then a year. As always, the best strategy is to provide as much medical documentation as possible to support your case.
