An estimated 22 million adults in the United States suffer from sleep apnea, and yet it remains a “notoriously undiagnosed” condition. It turns out that overlapping signs and symptoms of sleep apnea may be one of the reasons behind this national problem.
A good night’s sleep is an enigma to far too many people and yet essential to optimal wellness. One in four Americans develops insomnia each year, which is why an entire industry has sprung up around tools to help people sleep. The good news is that one of the most helpful methods—meditation—doesn’t have to cost you a thing.
Are you giving your heart the love that it deserves? If you’re living with untreated sleep apnea, we hate to break it to you, but the answer is no. The inside of your body is a strange place that’s connected in all sorts of surprising ways. The link between sleep apnea and heart disease happens to be one of them.
Every morning, as alarm clocks blare in bedrooms across America, millions of adults will groggily reach for the snooze button, their bodies heavy with exhaustion. They’ve slept for seven, eight, or maybe even nine hours, but feel as tired as they did when they climbed into bed the night before. They’ll stumble into their day restless and irritated—most without even realizing it—while silently, the lack of quality sleep is wreaking havoc on their health.
What’s the best way to treat obstructive sleep apnea symptoms while also looking like Bane from Batman? CPAP therapy, of course! Once you get over the fact that you sort of look like a notorious villain in your CPAP mask, you’ll find that CPAP therapy can make a huge difference in your sleep health and your overall quality of life.
