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
Complications after cosmetic surgery Houston Austin Dallas San Antonio
Hi, this is Hourglass, and welcome toanother tutorial in our channel Superhourglass. Today we are going to discuss obesity andpostoperative complications after cosmetic surgery. In this channel, we will discuss everything you need to know for you to get the hourglass shape you've always wanted. Welcome back. Obesity continues to climb in the United States. According to the CDC, more than 30% of the adult population is now considered obese based on the BMI. A body mass index of above 30 is considered obese.
Overweight is above 25, and morbidly obese is about 40. There is a continued debate and conflicting studies relating to non obese and obese patients when it relates to complications after surgery. Obesity has been related to postoperative complications including a 5 times higher rate of heart attack, 7.1 times higher rate of wound infection, and 1.5 times higher rate of urinary tract infection. In addition, obese patients are at a higher risk of pulmonary disorders like sleep apnea and hypoventilation syndrome (in other words, breathing slowly).
The problem with determining if obesity actuallycauses an increase in postoperative complications is that different studies have been designedusing different methodologies. Also, there is no strict definition of complications relative to the level of risk of the surgery. Some studies have related obesity to an increasedrisk of postoperative pulmonary infection, collapse of lungs, and pulmonary embolism. However, other studies have found no association between overweight, obesity, and postoperative respiratory complications. When it comes to cosmetic surgery, one of the main concerns with obese patients
and this has been shown in multiple studies is problems of wound dehiscence or wound opening after surgery, wound healing problems, and wound infection. There is no question that the more obese you are, the more likely you are to have wound healing issues and complications. Typically, we have the BMI to determine therisks of obesity and complications of surgery, but recently, as I discussed before, the amount of visceral fat, which is the fat around the internal organs, has been shown to have a major role in postoperative complications. Adipose tissue is now recognized to be morethan simply a lipid storage organ,
but a highly active metabolic organ with endocrine, paracrine, and immunological properties. In addition, excess adipose tissue, especially in the intraabdominal or visceral tissue, is considered a main metabolic syndrome where there is prothrombotic proinflammatory state associated with insulin resistance. The bottom line is that even if there areconflicting studies related to obesity and complications, it is generally accepted thatsomeone obese with a BMI above 30 is not going to be a good candidate for cosmetic surgery. Leaving the postoperative complications aside, an obese patient will have a less than satisfactory outcome
due to the fact that cosmetic surgery mainly involves contour procedures rather than weight loss procedures. Patients believe that they can come and have a tummy tuck and liposuction and all of a sudden their body will diminish from a size 10 to 12 to a size 3 or 4, but this is not the case. It is important that obese patients with a BMI above 30 reach a BMI that is within the healthier scale. In addition, it is important for the surgeon to assess the distribution of fat, including the visceral fat, because visceral fat has a significant role in proinflammatory conditions. It has been determined that it can actually increase the risk of prolonged recovery, poor wound healing, and blood clots.
Effects of Obesity Top 10 Obesity Problems Explained By DrJSRajkumar Lifeline s
Hello, I am Rajkumar from Lifeline s. And in this segment, I am going to be enumerating to you, all the various problems that could happen because of obesity. To learn more about your problems to know whats wrong with your body and how you can set it right, get advice from us by subscribing to this channel. In this segment, I am going to be talking to you about the various problems that can beset your body if you are overweight or obese
Let me start by telling you that the number of people who die every minute across the world due to cigarette smoking are exactly one fourth the number that who die every minute because of obesity This fact that obesity kills four times as many people as smoking was released by the world health organisation Now how does obesity kill people in such large proportions. For that we have to understand what are all it causes from head to foot. Lets begin at the head level. Patients who are obese can have severe headaches from a condition called Benign Intracranial Hypertension or a higher pressure in the brain
They have a high incidence of strokes or Cerebrovascular Accidents causing them to be paralysed either one half hemiplegic or even worse Patients who are obese also have a high incidence of heart attacks or Coronary Vascular Events The average heart event in a patient who is obese is three to four times as frequent as in a non obese counterpart. Because of this, the average age that obese people live is 12 to 15 years less than their age and sex matched counterparts Look at cancers, some of the commonest cancers in the world like Breast Cancer, Colon Cancer, Esophageal Cancer or Gullet Cancer and Pancreas Cancer are much commoner
in the fat or obese group than in the non obese group Apart from these, there is a bevelling array of diseases like Obstructive Sleep Apnea or OSA Severe snoring at night, nearly stopping the breathing several times every night Feeling sleepy through the day like the proverbial fat boy in Charles Dickens immortal Pickwick Papers The Pickwickian Syndrome, this is otherwise known as OSA. This is very very common in people who are fat. There is a high incidence of Lung Failures and this is one of the commonest causes of death in obese people when they are admitted to s.
Fractures of bones, when a combination, the unholy duo of obesity and thin bones is a very very common complication and often times a factor that leads on directly to death of the patient. Lets look at Knee Joint and Hip Joint replacement. We know that statistically people who are more than 15 kilograms above their ideal body weight have a much higher chance or risk of requiring replacement of their knees or replacement of their hips, during which time they could develop another complication thats very common in fat people, namely, Deep Vein Thrombosis or clotting in the veins of the legs This could then lead to a horrible condition called Pulmonary Embolism
which is also a common cause of death Thus, heart death, lung death, brain death, kidney death, bone death and cancer death all these causes, increase causes of mortality or causes of death are much commoner in the obese population and this is the array of diseases that you could be subject to if you are obese To learn more and in the following segments you will hear about this please do subscribe to our channel to understand how science and technology can come together to help you live a healthier, happier and a longer life.
