Puffy Eyes From Sleep Apnea Mask

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

Why Lack of Sleep or Insomnia are Not Likely Causes of Permanently Puffy Eyes or Eye Bags

Eye Puffiness Due to Insomnia for 7 Yearsé Hi, I've had lower eye puffiness for the last8 years. I think it's due to my insomnia. I've been sleeping more for the last 2 months,regular sleeping schedule and at least 7 hours of sleep. Will my puffiness go away or willI need lower eyelid surgeryé I'm 31 now and my bagsinsomnia started at 23 years old. Thank you for your question! You have had insomnia for a long time andI understand that you are sleeping more recently and this process of these puffy bags startedwhen you were 23 years old and now you're

in your 30s and you're asking if the puffinesswill go away or whether or not you will need eyelid surgery. Well, in order to understand what this puffinessis, it is to appreciate how much it is present during your normal waking hours and how muchit is at present, whether you get a lot of sleep or not sleep or very little sleep. Mostof the time, when people come to us, they'll say that no matter how much sleep they get,those bags don't go away. And everyone asks them if they're getting enough sleep. So it'snatural to assume that it's related to the insomnia. What these puffy bags most likelyrepresent, based on the photos you submitted,

is something called lower eyelid fat prolapse.Lower eyelid fat prolapse means that the fat that's normally around the eye pushes forwardand creates a bulge such that the eyes are always looking puffy. So most likely, it'ssomething that you will need some type of surgical procedure. When it comes to eyelid surgery, there aretwo approaches in the puffy bags below the eyes. One is the Transcutaneous or the incisionthrough the outside of the eyelid and the other is the transconjunctival or throughthe inside of the eyelid known as transconjunctival blepharoplasty. Based on your age and thephotos you submitted, most likely that's what

I would recommend. In my practice, I do alot of eyelid surgery and a lot of younger people like yourself with bags under the eyes,really appreciate when I do this procedure from the inside of the eyelid. This way, whenpeople see you, they have no idea that you had eyelid surgery. And if I had to chooseone procedure which has a dramatic impact on one's appearance is the reduction of lowereyelid bags. It literally opens up people's faces, their eyes. It's almost like havinga facelift for so many patients. So, what I advice is do some research andmeet with a qualified cosmetic surgeon. My bias is that you go to a surgeon who doesa lot of eyelid surgery. Look at the 's

before and after results and be confidentwith the style so that you feel that you resonate with the . In our practice, we do this procedure underlocal anesthesia with LITE IV sedation. Again, our patients appreciate that because theyare not put under general anesthesia, they don't go to a . We have our own jointcommission approved facilities so the level of safety is at the highest level and at thesame time, they get just amount of sedation so that they don't remember anything and they'revery comfortable and they are able to recover quickly. Typically, our eyelid patient forlower eyelid bags go back to work in a week

or even less with very little bruising andswelling. And again, now is a good time to learn aboutyour options. Do some consultations and choose the right to help you with your procedure.So I hope that was helpful and thank you for your question!.

There is No Medical Link of Systemic Infections Causing Eye Bags

Thank you for your question. You submitted two photos,one with you looking straight and one with you looking upward, demonstrating the presenceof under eye bags. And you state that at the age of 30 that you never had bags before butafter you had to deal with a gut infection due to a parasite; had subsequently have lowiron, ferratin levels, and B12 deficiency. You are have – you have these bags and youasking, “Will these bags resolve after your nutritional deficiencies resolveéâ€�Well, I can certainly give you some perspective. I'm a board certified Cosmetic Surgeon andfellowshiptrained Oculofacial Plastic Surgeon

practicing in Manhattan and Long Island forover 20 years. Under eye bags is one of the most common issues we deal with in our practice.And so I can give you certainly some perspective as to the systemic issue that you have andwhether or not it is relevant to the presence of the under eye bags.So let's first define what I – what you see when you have these under eye bags. The– when you look straight and you see this contour of these bags, and when you look upand these bags push out even a little bit further, this represents something calledLower Eyelid Fat Prolapse. Lower eyelid fat prolapse basically means that the fat pocketsthat are normally around your eyes pushes

forward and creates these bulges. There havebeen MRI studies that have shown that actually sometimes these fat pads are actually increasein volume which is not – you know, not surprising. Most of the time these issues are more ofa generic basis where within the same family. I've actually operated on members of threedifferent generations. So, I would suspect that most likely the – as far as the diagnosis,this is lower eyelid fat prolapse. Now, can a stress, such as parasitic infection or anyother stress accelerate lower eyelid bags from coming forwardé It is possible. There'snot enough study to say definitively but I just, anecdotally, from talking to patients,people who have severe sinusitis, chronic

allergies will often recount where these constantissues with drainage. They – you know, eyes get puffy and then puffier, and then eventually,they – they're always puffy. Sometimes in medicine, temporal relationships are equatedto causational relationships and that's not – and that's a logical flaw. Basicallyif something – if two things happen – two events happen related to your health or yourphysical being, they don't necessarily have to be cause and effect.It is probably advisable that before you undergo any correction that you do address your nutritionalissues. I would say that although you know in our practice how we deal with lower eyelidfat prolapse depending on the level, is either

with a nonsurgical approach using injectablefillers such Restylane and the use of plateletrich plasma which is to help improve skin quality.Or when the fat pockets are little more prolapsed to the point where they can't be camouflaged,we do something called lower eyelid blepharoplasty. Now that's a surgical procedure performedunder local anesthesia with light intravenous sedation. That means you're not put undergeneral anesthesia and is performed in our office under local anesthesia. So it's aprocedure that can be done in – approximately, in an hour and people don't have bags undertheir eyes; and it lasts a very, very long time because those fat pockets, specifically,cannot come back. But, in the same time, it

is important that a patient who is going tohave a procedure be healthy. So if you – if your nutritional issues orany other dietary issues have to be resolved, they should be resolved since this is notan emergent type of surgery. You want to observe maybe for yourself that after your iron levelscome back, B12 comes back, and anything else that needs to be addressed comes back. Aslong – if you allow six months or a year to pass, you'll probably then feel, like,comfortable with the idea of doing something to intervene so that you can at least answerthe question for yourself. And from my perspective, I don't think it's not going to changevery much. I think that once there's a physical
