Sleep Apnea Treatment

Sleep apnea is a potentially serious sleep disorder in which breathing repeatedly stops and starts. People with sleep apnea have multiple extended pauses in a breath when they sleep. It can affect children and adults and people of both sexes, although it is more common in men. 

In general, a person with sleep apnea is not aware of their breathing problems at night. However, they often only find out about the issue from a bed partner, roommate, or family member.

Stem cells have the capabilities to regenerate and repair damaged tissues, clear inflammation, and replace aging cells.

It’s because your uvula in the back of your throat is closed up, The second reason is central type sleep apnea. It’s because your brain stops giving signals to your breathing center so you stop breathing. So the first type is very reasonable and easy to treat. The second type will use acupuncture and excess stimulation for the brain and some of the patients actually can help them get rid of sleep apnea.
