If you often face sleeping difficulties, wake up tired, or frequently suffer from headaches, read on to find out a natural way to improve your sleep quality and boost overall health.
Insomnia, nightmares, and sleep apnea are unfortunately common these days. Insomnia can be a result of numerous medical and psychiatric conditions, unhealthy sleep habits, specific substances, and/or certain biological factors.
Yet, it is a serious health issue that might be the main cause of various health conditions and diseases. It can be caused by the following medical conditions: asthma, arthritis, low back pain, chronic pain, nasal/sinus allergies, gastrointestinal or endocrine problems, or neurological conditions like Parkinson’s disease.
On the other hand sleep apnea is a result of interrupted breathing, and it prevents the body to relax, so the sleep is interrupted. Yet, it is often left untreated and causes numerous other health issues, since the brain does not get the needed amount of oxygen.
This condition can be of two types, central sleep apnea, and obstructive sleep apnea. The latter is more common and is caused by the blockage of the breathing pathways. On the other hand, the central sleep apnea happens when the brain is not sending signals to the muscles to breathe.
It can affect anyone, at any age, and the risk factors are:
- Being male
- Being overweight
- Being older than 40
- Having a family history of sleep apnea
- Gastroesophageal reflux, or GERD
- Having a large neck size (17 inches or greater in men and 16 inches or greater in women)
- Having large tonsils, a large tongue, or a small jaw bone
- Nasal obstruction due to a deviated septum, sinusitis, allergies
The effects of sleep apnea, if left untreated, include:
- High blood pressure

- Worsening of ADHD
- Poor performance in everyday activities and academic underachievement
