Apnea. This is a big problem that many people suffer
from, essentially where people stop breathing for short periods of time at night and they
typically wake up taking a big gasp of air. Now this is a problem, not only because it’s
going to leave you completely fatigued all the time, but it’s a problem because it’s
known to lead to further health conditions down the road and if you have sleep apnea
you’re definitely going to want to pay attention. Now, when we look at sleep apnea there’s
two types. There’s going to be obstructive and there’s
going to be central. Let’s go ahead and focus on central first. Now Central Sleep Apnea is a type of sleep
apnea that is affecting the central nervous system specifically the autonomic nervous
system and what that is referring to is the part of the nervous system that is in charge
of unconscious control, all the things, all the functions in your body that you’re not
consciously controlling; your heartbeat, your digestion, your lungs breathing and when we
look at central sleep apnea, what I look at is as, is a complete fatigue or a complete
dysfunction of that central nervous system and as a result of the autonomic nervous system
not functioning well, you have a hard time breathing. Now here’s the thing, when we look at central,
all of the things were are going to talk about are just known to help this in such an incredible
way but, when we look at obstructive sleep apnea, it also helps with that too and not
because it’s removing any sort of obstruction but simply because many people in the bulk
of diagnosis is leaned toward the obstructive sleep apnea and when they use these same methods,
just to give it a try, just a shot in the dark they seem to get well as well. What this essentially means once again, it’s
not removing any of the obstruction, but that these people were improperly diagnosed with
this and that these methods are getting them well because they have a problem with the
autonomic nervous system. Now, it’s estimated that 22 million people
suffer from this issue and I can tell you clinically, I was totally blown away when
I found out how many of my patients actually are sleeping with CPAP machines and have sleep
apnea. We always turn to these methods right here
in order to get them well. Now, you may ask yourself “is this me, is
this something that I’m suffering from?” Maybe your sleep is really terrible, and you’d
like to get some further information on this. Now, one of the things that I use with people,
something called the BIOS trap. I’m actually wearing one right here on my
wrist and what this is, is a smart device that can give you a clinical grade analysis
of what’s going on in your body. Now it’s very, very informative because
what it’ll do is give you blood oxygen saturation rates, it’ll give you respiratory rates,
it’ll also look at your heart rate and then will give you a full sleep analysis and you
can take all this information and you can get a pretty darn good idea as to whether
or not sleep apnea is an issue for you. And all the things that I’m going to talk
about in this video because I’m going to be moving quick, I will link in the description
so that you can get further information on it. Let’s go ahead and talk about all the different
nutrients that I use and methods that I use in order to support reversing sleep apnea. First here on my list is antioxidants. Patients who have sleep apnea are known to
have an increasing amount of oxidative stress in a decreased amount of antioxidant activity
in the body. In order to support reducing oxidative stress
and increasing your antioxidants it’s great to take a really powerful antioxidant supplement
to boost those levels up. Now, the other thing that we need to mention
is that sleep apnea patients responded well to n-acetylcysteine which is a precursor to
the most powerful antioxidant in the body and that’s glutathione. If you want to boost antioxidants, take an
antioxidant supplement, a good broad spectrum one, but also use n-acetylycysteine the precursor
to the glutathione and that’s going to support this whole process as well. Next here is vitamins and minerals and I’m
going to recommend that you just do a good broad-spectrum high-quality multivitamin with
mineral. Simply because fat soluble vitamins play a
huge role in this process in reducing oxidative stress and in supporting the nervous system,
but also minerals do as well. In general, just take a good multivitamin
that has mineral in it and this will just kind of cover all the bases. Next on our list is Thiamine. Now thiamine B1 deficiencies are known to
affect the nervous system and cause a lot of stress on the nervous system and even affect
breathing. What we want to make sure it that we’re
taking a good thiamine, a specific thiamine supplement or a supplement that actually is
high in B1. I use a supplement called Neurosyn, which
is a cognitive support and neurological support and is loaded with B1 for that purpose. Make sure that we’re using this thiamine
and typically if you have a deficiency in B1, you have a deficiency in the other B vitamins
as well. That kind of leads back to the vitamin and
mineral okay just to cover the bases but once again you’re going to want a supplement
that has high amounts of B1 in it. Now next here is ribonucleic acid. This is going to support cellular repair,
cellular growth and support the nervous system in its entirety, taking a ribonucleic acid
is very powerful here as well. Last on the list is make sure you’re eating
clean. The same people who need to lose a little
bit of weight, the same people who are not eating a healthy diet, are the same people
who typically have issues with sleep apnea. Make sure that you’re eating a clean diet,
you’re decreasing sugar intake, you’re decreasing grains, and all the things that
can really inflame your nervous system. Make sure you’re doing that. If you need to lose some weight, focus on
that. And because when we look at whether it’s
losing weight or eating right, there’s so many people out there who started following
the ketogenic diet or some other good quality diet and lost a bunch of weight and their
sleep apnea just literally went away. This is going to be a really powerful thing
to do as well and you don’t want to leave it out. Go ahead and implement all these different
nutrients and also make sure that you’re eating a clean diet and it’s really going
to support reversing sleep apnea. Clinically, I have worked with patients to
do this again and again and they’ve seen incredible results. Give this video a thumbs up, share it with
your friends. Like I said, there’s so many people suffering
from this. This is a big deal and if you have any questions,
