Sleep apnea is one of the most common sleep disorder problems in America. It regularly delays sleep with an estimated 25 million Americans. Sleep apnea prevents the sleeper from entering REM and Delta sleep, which causes them to become anxious, cantankerous and tired during the day. There are very serious health effects of prolonged sleep deprivation. Additionally, due to the condition of the condition, it causes the oxygen level in the blood to be lower than normal for very long periods. This is harmful to the brain and the heart in particular.
Currently there are several ways in which sleep apnea is addressed. Initially, the patient is told to lose weight, drink less alcohol and quit smoking. With just a smith gene with insights into human nature, anyone can figure out how failed this approach will be. In addition, surgery is offered to reduce obstruction in the inhalation route. This has given some success, but the procedure is painful and often gives no relief. The last option is that the patient should buy a CPAP device. This is a forced air mask worn during sleep, ensuring proper inhalation. Most patients are not willing to go at this cost or to endure this level of machinery and the resulting nasal irritation.
What has continued to plague the appropriate treatment of both obstructive sleep apnea and central sleep apnea is that none of the "solutions" addresses the actual cause of sleep apnea. Being overweight does not cause this problem. Smoking does not cause this problem. Sleeping on them back does not cause this problem. So what causes the problem?
As we begin to fall asleep, we move from stage one (sleepiness) to step two sleep. Step two sleep is the transition step before you enter the REM (fast eye movement) sleep. REM sleep is where we dream. Dreams are crucial for a good night's sleep. As we enter stage two as a preparation for dreaming, muscular activity is inhibited. It is called "reduction of muscle tone". This is a feature that primarily appears to keep the dreamer from physically acting out of his dreams because the part of the brain that controls the muscular movement can not distinguish the difference between dreaming of walking down stairs and actually walking down the stairs . This muscle inhibition is absolutely necessary. This is achieved by suppressing the flow of signals from the brain along the spinal cord. Unfortunately, when we age, a few problems develop.
The first problem is that the muscles in the soft palate of the mouth become weaker. This allows for the soft palate. This is not very rare because most are not professional singers and do not exert their soft taste. As we age and the levels of HGH release, many muscles in our body disappear to a lower level of ability.
The second problem is that communication between the membrane and the brain becomes somewhat obstructed. The nerves that reach the membrane come out of the spine at C3, C4 and C5. These are cervical vertebrae that are right at the introduction of the upper trapezius muscles. The upper trapezius muscles are the most common expression of stress and tension in humans. This tension reduces the intervertebral foramen, from which the nerves radiate and restrict the nerve flow along the root of the nerve by direct limitation. Unfortunately, a large part of this excitement remains and does not disappear when the subject enters stage two of sleep.
The oxygen content in the blood drops and the normal proportional control loop can not hold the desired level. This is where security system security comes in. When the oxygen level of the blood becomes low enough to cause the physician to suffer from physical damage, the brain engages and causes the body to make a large and immediate inhalation.
So you see, the problem is not the weak soft palate. The problem is not the quick breath that sucks your soft gum into the airways. The problem is the reduced ability of the signal from your brain to produce adequate respiratory amplitude from your membrane. If your breathing was enough deep enough, you would not do a quick breath, suck your soft gum in the airway and laces disturb your sleep.
Appropriate solution is not to cut meat from your sponge or to use heavy equipment to force air into your lungs. Appropriate intervention is to accentuate the brain's ability to communicate with the membrane so that you breathe deeply and steadily.
