Natural Treatments for Sleep Apnea
Hey, guys. Axe, here, of naturalmedicine and founder of DrAxe . In this tutorial, I'm going to go through a sevenstepprocess on how to overcome sleep apnea. 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

What Causes Hip Fractures in Nursing Home South Carolina Nursing Home Injury Attorney
What are the causes a broken hip in anursing homeé Hi I'm Dan Pruitt, a Nursing HomeInjury Lawyer in Greenville, South Carolina. Hip fracture can result from severalcauses, many of which are neglect. First, when a resident is being transfered for example from a bed to chair. If the nursing assistant allows the resident to fall,
that can be considered neglect. And whyé Well, a lot of times nursing homes don'thave sufficient staff to have two people assist with thetransfer, and as result, the patient falls andbreaks their hip. In addition, it is possible that thenursing home has not properly trained it's staff. They're not aware of proper transfertechniques, they're not aware of the specificneeds of each patient.
and then when the resident falls, their hip is fractured, that can be neglect. So, if your loved one has had a hip fracture, or a broken hip in a nursinghome, that event may have been entirely preventable if the nursing home had havesufficient staff to properly transfer your loved one, or if the staff had had goodtraining into the specific medical needs of your loved one.
