WARNING! Sleep Apnea On The Rise…What’s Going On???

sample apnea

Sleep study clinics are popping up all across America.  Today there are almost 3,000 clinics with hundreds more in the works for certification and approval to do sleep disorder diagnostics.

A few short years ago we’d never even heard of sleep apnea and yet millions of people weren’t mysteriously dying in their sleep (as we’re led to believe will happen). Today it is reported that 5% of Americans suffer with some sort of serious sleep disorder (with “many more not yet diagnosed”).   What in the world is going on?

The Mayo Clinic defines sleep apnea this way:

Causes of obstructive sleep apnea

Obstructive sleep apnea occurs when the muscles in the back of your throat relax. These muscles support the soft palate, the triangular piece of tissue hanging from the soft palate (uvula), the tonsils, the side walls of the throat and the tongue.

When the muscles relax, your airway narrows or closes as you breathe in, and you can’t get an adequate breath in. This may lower the level of oxygen in your blood. Your brain senses this inability to breathe and briefly rouses you from sleep so you can reopen your airway. This awakening is usually so brief that you don’t remember it.

Now that we understand the definition of sleep apnea and how this disorder blocks the airways, etc.,  aren’t you even a little bit curious about what causes it in the first place?

For a short season, sleep apnea was considered to be a condition (almost exclusively) of overweight, middle-aged men.  Today we have sleep study facilities exclusively for young children…overweight and otherwise. Clearly this isn’t just a problem of overweight, middle-aged men.  We’ve got a serious problems!

I’m not a physician and I don’t attempt to give medical advice; I’m just a common-sense-kind-of-gal.  In this case, my common sense is thirsting for the root cause of this mysterious 21st century medical condition defined as sleep apnea.

COMMON SENSE?

I believe that your complex CPAP breathing unit is serving you well by forcing air into your airway (masking your symptoms) but it sure isn’t helping you identify the root cause of your problem.  The “mainstream medical” community has become experts at masking symptoms with pharmaceuticals and treatments for everything that ails you.  When we can’t put a label on your problem, there’s no need to worry.  We’ll write a prescription for depression and/or a narcotic for pain.   Personally I’d rather know what’s causing my problem in the first place so that I can (hopefully) correct it INSTEAD of managing (and masking)  my symptoms. Darn! There goes my common sense again!

A SIMPLE SOLUTION?

I routinely work with people of all ages on dehydration-related health issues. I introduce a hydration protocol using  lots of ionized, alkalized, electrically charged, healthy water (versus tap, bottled or R/O) and we evaluate changes that they experience as they begin to re-hydrate the body AND oxygenate the cells after years of chronic dehydration with the wrong kind of fluids.  Time and time again I’ve heard amazing reports back that include the following:

  • People no longer snoring (spouses confirm!)
  • No more sleep apnea –  no more need for CPAP (Dr. confirmations)
  • Sleeping peacefully through the night for the first time in years
  • Regained the sense of smell
  • No longer suffering with allergies or asthma
  • A strong and stable voice again
  • Improved hearing – tinnitus gone
  • No more acid re-flux (acid can’t be good on the airways)
  • and on and on…..

It’s amazing to see what the body is capable of doing for itself if you just give it what it needs.  Deprive the body of what it needs and you’ll pay the ultimate price for it!  The need for a CPAP device just might be the least of your problems!

NO WAY TO AVOID IT!

Nothing on the planet (in spite of creative advertising efforts) replaces the body’s need for lots of healthy water.  You can’t fill a fish tank with Diet Coke and expect your fish to live nor can you water your plants with Energy drinks and expect them to grow.  So why do you think that there are viable replacements for water for the human body?  Hmm…

Contrary to popular belief, not all water is created equal.  If you want to experience a healthy turn-around, you’ll need healthy water that is structured in such a way that your body can  absorb it at the cellular level the way it is intended to do!  It takes serious water to do that job!

Hydrate your airways (and all of the rest of you) and see what happens!  You never know…you just might be able to retire your CPAP contraption AND keep a happy spouse all at the same time!

Are you willing to try something as simple as changing your water for improved health or are you too close-minded to consider the possibilities?

Try it for FREE.  See for yourself!  The only thing you have a chance of losing is your CPAP AND saving your marriage.

Bottoms-up, Boomers!

Experts Blame Dehydration for Stroke Damage? It’s About Time!

stroke brain

Headlines in a an article published by Everyday Health reads  “Dehydration Leads to Greater Stroke Damage”.  More accurately it should read  “Dehydration Leads to Greater Stroke Risk“.  Dehydration is your enemy and it’s time to give it the blame that it deserves. The human brain is 85% water and the blood is 90% water.  When the body is deprived of water, the consequences go well beyond what most people understand.  We’ve replaced the body’s NEED for water with a beverage-of-choice and we no longer recognize the signs of dehydration.  

Dr. Paul Bendheim, a clinical professor of neurology from the University of Arizona College of Medicine in Tucson, says there are no hard-and-fast rules for staying well-hydrated, despite recommendations to drink eight glasses of water each day.   That’s a no-brainer! Obviously the amount of water each individual needs depends on a number of factors;  activity, weight and status of health just to name a few.  Dr. Bendheim goes on to say, “prior research found that the majority of people are dehydrated when they have a stroke, but it’s not clear why”.  How in the world can it not be clear why people are dehydrated?  It’s interesting to note that most heart attacks and strokes happen in the middle of the night when the body is the most dehydrated.  It’s a very good thing to drink water before you retire for the night!

The 8 Glasses of Water a Day Rule is just THE MINIMUM needed to keep your organs functioning…but it sure isn’t enough to keep your blood hydrated and your veins free and clear!

If you’re active, if you’re sick or if you’re overweight,  you need a whole lot more than just eight, 8-ounce glasses of water a day to equip the body to battle things like stroke or high blood pressure, diabetes, arthritis, and a multitude of other conditions!  Water is positively key to your prevention and recovery…you were wired that way!  

Best selling author of “Your body’s Many Cries for Water” and “You’re not sick, you’re thirsty“, Dr.  F. Batmanghelidj, has this to say about water:

“So share this blessing of God {water} with others, and take a stand to stop the present health care ‘sting’ against those who do not yet know that chronic dehydration is the root cause of most degenerative diseases of the human body”

Seniors are generally more dehydrated than younger people primarily because  we lose our sense of thirst as we age.  We may need to be reminded to drink instead of waiting for the brain to trigger thirst.  Lots of people set alarms to be reminded to take medications, perhaps it’s time to set up a reliable reminder to prompt you to drink water too.  Relying on your sense of thirst won’t do the trick.  By the time the average person “feels” thirsty, they are already chronically dehydrated and ready for disaster.

Now that you know that stroke (among LOTS OF OTHER THINGS) can be triggered or worsened by dehydration, don’t you think it’s time to do something about it?

How much research do you need to read before you take action to properly hydrate your body with W A T E R?  It all comes down to basic biology.  No amount of consuming any other fluids can replace the body’s need for water.  In fact, most choice beverages actually cause the body to work harder just to rid itself of toxins introduced by replacing water with another beverage.

If water is so important, don’t you think the kind of water you drink might be important too?  Of course it is!  It doesn’t make much sense to consume water that has no minerals whatsoever (causes the body to deplete itself of minerals from within which leads to degeneration) and it doesn’t make much sense to drink water that is laced with the chemicals necessary to make human waste potable.  After you make the decision to consume the amount of water your body needs; you’ll need to decide what kind of SAFE and HEALTHY water you’ll be introducing to your body.  There aren’t a whole lot of options when you look at it that way!  Electrolyzed Reduced Water (ERW) is the ONLY way to go for me and my family.   After doing our own research; the choice was easy for us. How much research (and testimonials) do you need to see before you embrace Electrolyzed Reduced Water as being the most beneficial water for the human body?

I know that my days are numbered but I don’t buy in to the idea that I’m supposed to rot prior to my death, so I’m giving my body what it needs to avoid things like stroke, cancer, arthritis, diabetes, etc., instead of looking for a pill to fix my problem later.  After all, there is no cure for any disease whatsoever.  With that in mind, it’s time to FIGHT FOR HEALTH!

Do yourself, your brain (and the rest of your body) and your family a favor.  HYDRATE NOW!

When Pleasure Outweighs the Pain…

pain-and-pleasure

Almost every choice we make in  life is motivated by one of two powerful forces….the desire for pleasure and the fear of pain.  Although we say that we don’t want to feel pain if we can help it,  the prevailing force for many is the desire for pleasure regardless of the pain that comes with it.  This explains a lot when it comes to health and wellness.

How many times have I heard “there is no way I’m giving up my sodas” even when I’ve had the opportunity to scientifically demonstrate  the dangers associated with their habit?   It doesn’t seem to matter that there will be a long-term price to pay and that their health will eventually surrender because of it.  They’re living for the moment and they chose pleasure over pain almost every time.  Undoubtedly they are addicted to their pleasure (and their sodas).

How many times have I heard “I’m not giving up the convenience of bottled water” even when I’ve had the opportunity to scientifically demonstrate to them the dangers associated with the pleasure that comes with their need for convenience?  It doesn’t seem to matter that there will be a long-term price to pay and that their health will eventually surrender because of it.  They are living in the “fast lane” and they chose the pleasure of convenience over the pain almost every time….regardless of the  consequences to their health (and the environment).

The next generation is suffering because of the pleasure choices we continue to make.  The exposure to radiation, pesticides, GMO’s, BPA, Aspartame, etc., are just a few of the things that are causing a lot pain and whether you can see  it or feel  it yet is not relevant.…you (and your family) will ultimately pay the price for your pleasure-driven decisions.  When things autism, arthritis, kidney disease or cancer strike your family, don’t say I didn’t warn you.

There is an old saying that goes like this “no pain…no gain”.  Nothing could be more true when it comes to making wise decisions about your health. Isn’t it time you set aside your pleasures to protect your health and the health of your family for generations to come?

You might miss the pleasure that you get from your sodas but you’ll be avoiding pain later on and your body will thank you for it!

You may suffer with a little inconvenience by refilling your water bottle with healthy water but you’ll get over it eventually and your body will thank you for it!

You might feel the pain of having to read food labels and look up all of those words you don’t understand but you’ll learn in time and your body will thank you for it!

What do you say?  Will you continue to chose your reckless pleasure over the painful consequences  and roll-the-dice on your health or are you ready for a little pain that comes with healthy change?

Norman Bates is a Chump! This is Something to Really be Afraid of!

physcho

This shower scene from Alfred Hitchcock’s classic movie “Psycho” was so frightening that it kept people awake at night and caused lots of people to change their shower habits for fear that Norman Bates would pay them a visit too.  One scene in one movie scared people silly and provoked them to make changes!

That was just a movie.  The following real-life list should scare the stew out of EVERYONE and it should provoke you to make changes to avoid danger too:

1 in every 2 males will get cancer at some point in their lifetime

1 in every 3 females will get cancer at some point in their lifetime

1 in every 5 people will get Alzheimer’s by the age of 65

1 in every 50 children have autism

I’ve got my boxing gloves on and I’m fighting back with everything I’ve got! Norman Bates wouldn’t stand a chance with me!   When are you going to WAKE UP, GLOVE UP and FIGHT BACK?  It’s time to take responsibility for your own health and the health of the next generation(s).  Ignoring the threats don’t make them go away no more than ignoring Norman Bates would have made him disappear.

I hate to be the bearer of bad news but you aren’t invincible.   It doesn’t make sense for you to sit back fat, dumb and happy while expecting to have some medical miracle  “fix” you when you face your own diagnosis.  Modern medicine has NO CURE for any of the these things!   I’m assuming that you’d muster up the courage to fight back if you had an encounter with Norman Bates?   Maybe not.  You’re obviously pretty complacent when it comes to real danger.

There is one very simple change that can have a profound impact on your health and that can get you off on the right track in your FIGHT for health and wellness.  This change is so simple that most people don’t “get it”.  This simple change is 70% of the necessary protocol for your good health!  Without it you die.   Without the right change you rot.   This change addresses THE MOST VITAL  NUTRIENT for the human bodywater.

Change your water source IMMEDIATELY and drink LOTS of it!  Reverse osmosis water (includes most bottled water) is just as harmful to the human body as chemically treated tap water and the BPA is killing you (slow but sure).

It gets a little lonely out here on the island by myself.  Do you want to join me or are you content to “take it lying down”?   Don’t say I didn’t warn you. The health threats that we face today make Norman Bates look like a chump.
