Sleep Apnea On The Rise & $10 Billion Behind it! 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.


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!


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!

The typical prescribed fix for apnea is a continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) machine that pumps pressurized air through a face-mask, forcing the user to breathe throughout the night. Prices for the machines range from less than $200 to more than $5000, with an estimated US market of about $10 billion annually.


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 closed-minded to consider the possibilities?

Try it for FREE….see for yourself!

The only thing you stand a chance of losing is your CPAP!

1jillian-michaelsWhat do you do on a daily basis that impacts both your health and the environment?

“I find that when one has the knowledge and the means they have a responsibility to make the ethical choices. With regard to my diet, I always go organic. I shop at local farmers’ markets whenever possible. I have given up all animal products except for fish that has been ethically fished like ocean caught salmon, farmed arctic char, farmed trout, pacific cod, tilapia, crab, shrimp, and farmed oysters. I use all natural beauty products like Olive Oil, brown sugar for scrubs, avocado and ethical organic brands. My cleaning products are all green…I use a Kangen water ionizer for drinking water and put in stainless steel canteensnever bottled water

Kangen water?  Hmm…  What does Jillian know that you don’t?

Too Many Fat People for the Mayor of New York?

Apparently Mayor Bloomberg isn’t very fond of overweight people.   He attributes his proposed ban on “sugary” drinks (over 16 ounces) on the fact that it is reported that healthcare costs for obese people is out of control.   What’s next?  No more double cheeseburgers?  I understand the need to balance all budgets but I fail to see anything rational about this step toward the fight against obesity.

Clearly Bloomberg doesn’t understand the greater health challenges nor does he understand that you can’t MAKE people stop drinking “sugary” drinks no more than you can stop people from drinking alcohol or smoking cigarettes.  The last time I checked, those things are still legal.

Where does it stop?  There is a lot of physical damage being done that impacts the rising cost of healthcare  from the use of Aspartame in many “low calorie” options.  There is also reason to believe that bottled water is toxic.  “Don’t look now Bloomberg but you might be opening a real can of worms”.

Obviously Mayor Bloomberg won’t succeed in implementing this ban any more than Concord, Massachusetts will succeed in banning the sale of bottled water (although I’d LOVE to see that happen).  The McDonald’s and the Nestle’s of the world won’t sit back for this.  After all, there is more money being paid in taxes on these “sugary” drinks and toxic bottled water than there will ever be in healthcare.

As for me and my family, we make our own PURE Kangen Water and we use only BPA free bottles.   We’re saving money and we’re healthier for it.   Fascinating concept, isn’t it?
