If you struggle with sleep apnea, snoring, insomnia,just trouble sleeping at night, these tips are going to help you big time. The number one thing you've got to start doingif you want to overcome sleep apnea is look at your diet. Now, sometimes sleep apnea canbe related to weight gain. It can be related to inflammation in different areas of yourbody. But if you can follow these dietary tips, it's going to help tremendously.
The first thing you want to do is you reallywant to focus on supporting your metabolism. You want to focus on getting three thingsevery single meal: good quality protein, healthy fat, and fiber, those three things. Most peoplewith sleep apnea, most people tend to consume too many carbohydrates and too much sugar,which can actually affect your insulin levels and your metabolism, which causes sleep apnea.So again, healthy protein, such as bone broth protein, organic chicken and turkey, wildcaughtfish, grassfed beef, getting good quality protein is important. Number two, fiber, getting more vegetablesand fruits in your diet and wholesprouted
grains, such as brown rice, that's where youwant to get your fiber. The healthy fats, things like coconut oil, olive oil, organicnuts and seeds, those are some ways to get some good healthy fat in your diet. So again,focus on a healthy diet, a diet that's antiinflammatory and that helps balance out insulin levelsis going to be big when it comes to beating sleep apnea. Number two, there are certain things you wantto avoid. If you have sleep apnea, you want to avoid intake of alcohol, caffeine, smoking,and also you need to be aware of sedatives. If you're taking sedatives on a regular basis,that can really cause sleep apnea. Stay away
from those things. If you're saying to yourself,quot;Well, I'm still going to do caffeine and alcohol,quot; then what I would do is not do coffee.I would just do a little bit of tea, like a green tea during the day. So again, just tone it down some. The otherthing I would do is, if you're drinking alcohol, limit it to one glass. When you start doingmore than one glass, more than one beer, more than one glass of alcohol, that's really goingto affect your sleep cycle. And no more than two days a week. Again, bring the alcoholdown, because that will absolutely cause sleep apnea.
The number three tip is to treat acid reflux.Many people with sleep apnea have heartburn, GERD, or acid reflux, or some type of digestiveissue that's causing their sleep apnea. Now, the way to overcome that is to follow thesedietary tips. You want to eat smaller meals, so you don't want to overeat, and get moreorganic meat, vegetables, and fruits. You've got to be careful overconsuming thegrains, the pastas, the breads, the chips. All of those things will really cause acidreflux and sleep apnea. Also, supplementing with digestive enzymes, probiotics, and applecider vinegar. So probiotics, enzymes, and apple cider vinegar, all of those can helpin the natural treatment of acid reflux and
reduce sleep apnea. The number four thing you want to considerdoing to beat sleep apnea is getting a humidifier in your bedroom. Oftentimes, it's the humidityor being too dry in the bedroom that actually causes sleep apnea. So look into getting ahumidifier and sometimes an air purifier. So a humidifier, an air purifier, those thingscan actually help support your body and you breathing better and overcoming sleep apnea. Number five is your sleeping position. Manypeople with sleep apnea sleep on their back. Some of them sleep on their stomach. You wantto sleep on your side. What you want to do
How To Heal Broken Bones Naturally

And if you want to repair broken bones naturally,you want to follow a very specific diet, supplement regimen, lifestyle regimen, as well as usecertain essential oils and natural treatments to help your body heal much, much faster.And I'll tell you, I've seen broken bones heal two to three times faster by followingthe tips I'm sharing with you in this tutorial. So number one, let's start with diet, andthe key nutrients you've got to be getting in your diet in order to heal broken bones.Number one, you need a lot of minerals, especially
calcium and magnesium. The best calcium richfoods are going to be green, leafy vegetables and raw, fermented dairy products. So gettinga lot of kale, and spinach, and arugula, and chard and those green leafies, even broccoli.Getting those in your diet is number one. They're packed with calcium, and calcium isthe main mineral that helps make up strong bones. But in order for your body to even use calcium,you also have to have magnesium. And so, some magnesium rich foods are going to be verysimilar. Green leafy vegetables, raw, fermented dairy products like goat's milk, kefir orraw goat cheese. Also though, magnesium rich
foods may include certain seeds, like flaxseeds, chia, pumpkin seeds, grass fed beef are also good. So again, you want to get alot of calcium rich foods, magnesium rich foods. Also, you want to get foods that arerich in zinc. Zinc foods again, are going to be grass fed beef, pumpkin seeds, chiaand flax seeds. Very similar to the magnesium rich foods. And then, also you want to begetting loads of Vitamin C, and even things like fresh vegetable juices. Vitamin C richfoods can include orange juice, true oranges, lemons, bell peppers, kiwis, broccoli, asparagus.Those are foods that are packed with Vitamin C. So make sure you're getting plenty of VitaminC.
So really your diet should consist of a lotof veggies, some fruit, some organic meat, some nuts and seeds. And that should reallybe the bulk of your diet as you're trying to heal, and get all of those nutrients forbuilding strong bones. Now the foods you want to stay away from arefoods that tend to be overly acidic, conventional meat and dairy products and alcohol. You alsowant to stay away from excess sodium and excess sugar. Those will acidify your body. They'llactually leach those minerals out of your body and really cause your bone growth andhealing to slow down. Now, the top natural supplements for the treatmentof broken bones are going to be, number one,
taking a Vitamin D supplement. If you havea broken bone, getting out in the sun is ideal. Getting direct sunlight, Vitamin D is reallyimportant for bone growth. But if not, then taking 5,000 IUs twice a day for three monthsof Vitamin D is crucial to healing broken bones fast. The other supplements you're going to takealong with magnesium and calcium supplements, ideally is a magnesium chelate supplement,so it would go to whole food form of magnesium. Also, things that can help is a fish oil supplement.Those omega three fats can reduce inflammation, speed the healing process, as well as doinga green super food powder. Getting a green
super food that has spirulina and chlorellaand other alkalizing fruits and vegetables. Very, very beneficial at actually healingbroken bones. The next step in healing broken bones fastnaturally, is going to be natural therapy, such as standing on a vibrational platform.There are studies that show a vibrational platform increases bone density, so you canfind vibrational platforms on line. Stand on those for 20 minutes, three times a dayand it naturally helps increase your bone density. And it's doing that without majorimpact, so again, vibrational platform. Don't forget that. Some gyms also have them in thegym. I know a lot of chiropractic offices
