Homeopathy Medicine for Obstructive Sleep Apnea
The most prevalent sleep-related breathing disorder is obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), which is brought on by the repeated collapse of the upper airway during sleep. OSA happens when the muscles that hold our tongue and soft palate in place relax.
Breathing repeatedly stops and starts while you sleep as a result of the potentially dangerous sleep disorder known as obstructive sleep apnea.
Obstructive sleep apnea, which is the most prevalent type of sleep apnea and is characterized by periodic relaxation of the throat muscles that block the airway while you’re asleep, is a condition that causes loud snoring.
SYMPTOMS OF OBSTRUCTIVE SLEEP APNEA
Obstructive sleep apnea symptoms and signs include:
- Excessive daytime sleepiness
- Loud snoring
- Sleeping episodes where breathing stopped were noticed
- waking up suddenly and choking or gasping for air
- Having a sore throat or dry mouth when you wake up
- Morning headache
- inability to focus throughout the day
- feeling depressed or irritable, or having mood swings
- High blood pressure
- Nighttime sweating
- Decreased libido
CAUSES OF OBSTRUCTIVE SLEEP APNEA
The muscles in the back of our throat, which support the tonsils, tongue, uvula, back of our roof of mouth (soft palate), and the triangular piece of tissue hanging from the soft palate (obstructive sleep apnea), relax too much to allow normal breathing.
Breathing may be insufficient for 10 seconds or longer when the muscles relax, which may lower the amount of oxygen in the blood and lead to a buildup of carbon dioxide.
As a result of this impaired breathing, your brain wakes you up from sleep for a brief period of time, and you usually don’t remember it.
You may snort, choke, or gasp when you first wake up, but this will quickly pass after one or two deep breaths.
These interruptions prevent you from entering the desired deep, restful sleep phases and you’ll likely feel sleepy during your waking hours. This pattern can repeat itself five to thirty times or more each hour, all night.
Obstructive sleep apnea sufferers frequently mistakenly believe they slept soundly all night, making it difficult for them to be aware that their sleep was disrupted.
