Conquering Your Own Sleep Apnea The All-Natural Way:
How Making Sensible Diet and Lifestyle Changes Can Curb This Life-Threatening Sleep Disorder
by Julia W. Rath, Ph.D.,
debunks many myths about apnea, chronic insomnia, restless legs syndrome (RLS), and treatments for these sleep disorders.
You may not know that:
- You can have sleep apnea even if you are not obese or overweight.
- Men and women of all racial and ethnic groups can get apnea, but a good deal of our knowledge about this disease has been largely based on research conducted on obese white men.
- You can acquire apnea at any age; it’s not limited to adults. Children are getting it in record numbers today.
- Sleep apnea does not “progress” from loud snoring, but snoring may be one indicator of apnea.
- Apnea does not have to be diagnosed through a sleep study in a sleep laboratory.
- The CPAP machine is not the “gold standard” for treatment if you don’t use it. You probably don’t need it!
- Sleep apnea and chronic insomnia may be tied to consuming certain genetically-modified foods and food ingredients.
This book is a must-read for those of you who:
- Have been diagnosed with sleep apnea or chronic insomnia by a medical professional.
- Have self-diagnosed your own sleeplessness, breathlessness, choking, panic attacks, or apnea-like symptoms at night.
- Believe that you have chronic insomnia or RLS but have no idea what may have caused it or why it is so persistent.
- Are extremely tired during the day and suspect that you have a sleep problem—or know somebody who does!
