The Reason why Being Overweight Can Cause Sleep Apnea

Jun 5, 2008
Sleep Apnea is a medical condition characterized by interrupted breathing patterns during sleep. A sufferer of sleep apnea, who most likely snores very loudly, may stop breathing for 10-20 seconds while asleep, then resumes breathing with a gasp, choke, or loud snort.

This may happen anywhere from five to 30 times an hour, and the decreased amount of oxygen in the blood can be life threatening.

Currently, only one in 25 adults are reported to have sleep apnea, because about 90% of all sleep apnea cases are not reported.

Most sufferers do not wake up during these episodes of non-breathing, and are not aware of the medical condition, hence it is not being reported.

Most likely, the sufferer's bed partner or roommate is the one who notices the symptoms.

While it is common knowledge that obesity causes sleep apnea (the additional fat around the neck pushes against the airways), the reverse is also true. Sleep apnea can cause obesity. The body gets into a "panic mode" when the amount of oxygen in the blood decreases, causing it to store more fat to compensate for decreased energy reserves.

It is a cruel cycle, and it will not end unless it is cured.

You may be suffering from sleep apnea if you have these symptoms - overweight, sore/dry throats and headaches in the morning, and feeling of tiredness during the day.

Most doctors claim that even a 10% reduction in weight will prevent sleep apnea and help you sleep better. Losing weight may be a helpful advice, but it is easier said than done.

That's where my Snoring Program comes in.

No harsh exercises are used in my Snoring Program. Hundreds of people who used my program have been satisfied with it. It has cured their sleep apnea and has given them a good night's sleep.

By sticking to the easy steps listed in my Snoring Program, the body won't go into the aforementioned "panic mode" during sleep, and the increased energy you'll get from sleep will make it easier for you to maintain a healthy body weight. Two birds with one stone.

How about hitting three birds with one stone?

My new Weight Loss Program will also help sleep apnea sufferers deal with its causes - as well as a list of other problems caused by the extra weight.

The exercises in my new Weight Loss Program aren't even workout exercises - in fact, you've probably never heard of exercises like these before.

Check out my Snoring Program and Weight Loss Program to help you finally cure your sleep apnea and have a better life.
