What Causes Sleep Apnea

Posted by SE on

Sleep Apnea is a condition whereby a person has difficulty sleeping, and breathing.   Although doctors will prescribe CPAP machines and masks to wear at night to help you breathe, there are other alternatives to that, and that might get to the cause of your sleep apnea.

 #1 Cause of Sleep Apnea

  •      Being Overweight -      Statistics show that over 2/3rds of people experiencing sleep apnea are overweight.
  •     Excessive Fat On Inside of The Neck -     Obesity causes people to develop excessive fat on the inside of the neck. This fat will narrow the passage way of the neck for breathing and cut off breathing, especially if the person sleeps with their head down toward their chest.

When the air is cut off or disrupted, the person's heart may actually stop beating.  A person with sleep apnea may awaken several times during the night as their body warns them they are not breathing well.may awaken sYou need oxygen.

A person with sleep apnea could have a heart that stops beating many times during the night due to the breathing disruption.  

The person will awaken in the morning feeling tired and with brain fog because they have not received the proper oxygen.  And from having awakened so many times and not getting a restful sleep.

A Cure For Sleep Apnea?

  • Lose That Weight -   If you suspect the cause of your sleep apnea is a fatty neck, then you need to lose that weight.   With the fat in the neck gone, your airway passages could open up to normal again and your sleep apnea gone!
