  1. I'm not sure but ,if anyone else is searching for best cure for sleep apnea try Tarbetti Apnea Expert Tutor(Have a quick look on google cant remember the place now ) ? Ive heard some incredible things about it and my co-worker got great success with it.

  2. Just needs to clarify that this will apply to OSA (Obstructive Sleep Apnea), however this does not apply to CSA (Central Sleep Apnea) which is neurological and is not produce due to obstruction but due abnormal signal send (or NOT send) to the body to actually breath. Also please HIGHLIGHT that all these advices should be performed WHILE you are doing more formal treatment with a Doctor specialized in Sleep so he can determine through a polysomnography (sorry if I got it mispelled) what type of Apnea do you have. It's really important to do a mitigation treatment like using a CPAP machine…which will improve significantly your sleep and daily life (remove the sleepiness and exhaustion during the day which is a very common symptom of OSA/CSA).
    Using a CPAP or mouthguard devices (which works in some cases) are key to avoid risks of heart decease and accidents due to the sleepiness and lack of focus the apnea produces.
    Of course you advices are very recommended and should be followed, however those takes quite some time (especially losing weight) so it should not be the only approach. Mitigation should be always needed.

    I have OSA myself, have been properly diagnosted and been using a CPAP machine for more than 2 years now. It changed completely my life as I have energy, focus and I'm not sleepy during the day. However I don't like been dependent of a machine to breath at night and not being able to go camping or have a vacations without carrying the damned thing. That's why I'm following a diet based on your advise and others. I have removed almost completely wheat and dairy and I'm following a Keto Diet combined with Intermitten fasting under a 16:8 protocol. So far I've lost nearly 20 lbs and have another 20 to go for my ideal weigth and I can assure everyone it helps with the apnea.. still using the machine but my snoring (when not using it) decreased a lot (says my wife) and I'm hoping tha after I lose another 20 lbs or so.. I can get near to not needing the machine (crossing my fingers).

    Thanks for the advice and remember to include also all the necessary information so people can take the right decisions on how to treat themselves.

  3. interesting points ,if anyone else wants to uncover how to cure sleep apnea on your own try Knewreck Amazing Apnea Guide(should be on google have a look ) ? Ive heard some amazing things about it and my cousin got amazing results with it.

  4. Not sure if there’s any research to back this, but I took Royal Jelly for a few months and got pregnant (with twins!) after three years of infertility. ❤️

  5. This jerk isn't a doctor and is trying to separate you from your money. If you have sleep problems you owe it to yourself to see a physician. Sleep apnea in particular can make your life miserable and lead to serious and fatal complications. Do not listen to this guy – his advice may kill you.

  6. Can anyone tell me what this problem I have could be, idk if its sleep apnea, as I start to fall asleep, I get a sudden urge to take a deep breath and I feel my heart lurch, it's been happening more frequently lately, and never happened before I hurt my back, beginning to really effect me…

  7. As a so called professional I find it abhorrent that you would refer to people, some of which may be your patients as FAT. I've always loved your videos, but this one, including your lack of knowledge on this subject gets a big thumbs down!! Dr Axe here I come.

  8. Wow, Dr. B is so on point! I wasn't getting much sleep, overworking myself, and definitely felt my issue was in the back of my sinuses. I changed my diet, eliminated allergens.

  9. Eat leafy greens, eliminate sugars, pastas, grains… Plant proteins… Neit pot irrigation of your sinuses (salt and baking soda added for reducing inflammation… salt also disinfects)… Nasal strip… Sleep on your side!! YES! to the dietary changes. He says a lot of fat people don't have this, but this fat boy lost 70 pounds and now sleeps a lot more easily on my side, which makes it far easier to breath… Also it's not just the sinuses that cause obstruction, if you're fat, everything is fatter on you… including your tongue. Fat people have less room around their trachea.. when you lose the excess tissue there is more space there. SIDE SLEEPING IS BEST!!!

  10. Doctor I'm not denying what you're saying but I figured out in my particular case that a lot has to do with silent reflux it gets into my Airways and somehow it constricts automatically if I eat right like you said though it kind of goes away but I've always suffered this my whole life pretty much. Do you have any ideas?

  11. What about mucous build up?? And sleep position?? Neti pot irrigation with salt water helps me TREMENDOUSLY with sinus blockage. I've been sleeping better since I've started sleeping on my side, but I read somewhere that having your head elevated above the rest of your body, a position that you can achieve with an adjustable reclining bed, or wedge pillows, reduces sinus blockage. I've noticed that I breath easier through my nose when I'm actually on my back, even though that position is more conducive to tracheal blockage caused by the tongue relaxing and collapsing backward. Sleeping in an inclined position is supposed to eliminate this. I'll be trying that tonight. I don't drink milk, I never have any sugar that is not from fruits, no wheats, grains, pastas, cereal, crackers, biscuits, waffles etc… But I still snore….although not as much with after salt water irrigation and a nasal strip. I'm hoping sleeping on an incline will improve things.

  12. Yeah… more oxygen in a thunderstorm…. right…. NO ! NO NO NO ! that is not correct.. lightning strikes converts oxygen into Ozone… which actually is harmfull… and the ozone is what makes everything smell fresh after a thunderstorm…
    There is not more oxygene after wards … there is more ozone…!
