Food and life style changes to combat Sleep Apnea
Sleep apnea is a disorder characterized by a reduction or pause of breathing (airflow) during sleep. It is common among adults but rare among children. The treatment of sleep apnea can be either surgical or nonsurgical. Apnea occurs when a person stops breathing for 10 seconds or more. If a person stops breathing completely or take less than 25% of a normal breath for a period that lasts 10 seconds or more. This definition includes complete stoppage of airflow. We can notice at least a 4% drop in oxygen in the blood, a direct result of the reduction in the transfer of oxygen into the blood when breathing stops. Apneas usually occur during sleep. When an apnea occurs, sleep usually is disrupted due to inadequate breathing and poor oxygen levels in the blood. Sometimes this means the person wakes up completely, but sometimes this can mean the person comes out of a deep level of sleep and into a more shallow level of sleep. High blood pressure, stroke, daytime sleepiness, congestive heart failure (low flow of blood to the heart), insomnia, and mood disorders can be caused or worsened by sleep apnea. It may also be caused due to over weight. Avoiding alcohol and smoking helps in treating. Having low fat diary products ,fruits and vegetables, whole grains and plant based oils may combat sleep apnea. Avoid fats, onions, chocolate and spicy foods ,eat your largest meal at lunch instead of dinner ,finish eating 2-3 hours before lying down ,sleep with your held and shoulders elevated ,Sleep on your left side ,avoid alcohol ,don’t smoke
