Foods to Reduce Sleep Apnea

Alternative methods of treating sleep apnea

Fortunately, advances in the technology at our disposal, as well as in our understanding of the condition have helped researchers to invent new and improved ways to treating the condition, including the continuous positive airway pressure mask, which consists of a device that the user wears over his mouth and nose and which helps to pump a constant stream of oxygen which keeps his or her airway clear, effectively preventing the symptoms of sleep apnea from surfacing during sleep. This is, by far, the most effective way to treat the disease and which most sleep apnea sufferers around the world learn to use in order to get a good night’s sleep.

However, there are also alternative methods to combat sleep apnea which, while they can’t be used as standalone treatments, can help wonders to complement standard sleep apnea procedures. One of the said methods consists of eating the right foods which can help to reduce their intensity of sleep apnea symptoms, or even prevent their appearance outright. In this article, we aim to shed some light on which foods are the best for sleep apnea sufferers in order to reduce the intensity of their episodes.
