From Patients

I wish more people knew about this product (SUAD™). I wish my doctors had told me about this years ago. People don't realize the far reaching effects of sleep deprivation, most importantly cell regeneration during the deep sleep stage and how it affects the heart and the multitude of ways it contribute to weight gain. I used to wake up feeling like I'd run a marathon in my sleep, face all swollen and puffy, exhausted, dazed and confused, just counting the minutes until my mid-day nap. Not anymore.

Sleep Apnea

Sleep Apnea

Signs, Causes and Treatment

Sleep Apnea is a sleep disorder characterized by complete or partial cessations of breathing during sleep. The cause is a physical block to airflow despite respiratory effort, and snoring is common.

Sleep Apnea Health Risks

The brain then has to wake up the patient to begin breathing again, often with a gasp or choke. People with mild sleep apnea may stop breathing only a few times an hour. People with severe sleep apnea can stop breathing hundreds of times a night. Often the patient is unaware of the frequent night awakenings when they get up in the morning. Untreated, sleep apnea can contribute to the following health conditions:

 

  • Heart attack
  • Excessive daytime sleepiness
  • Morning headaches
  • Weight gain
  • Gastric reflux
  • Dry mouth
  • Sore throat
  • Slow metabolism
  • Inability to lose weight
  • High blood pressure
  • Diabetes
  • Depression
  • Heightened anxiety
  • Poor job performance
  • Heavy snoring
  • Poor short term memory
  • Impaired concentration
