Do you suffer from sleep apnea depression? Depression is often caused due to sleep deprivation and sleep deprivation can kick in if you suffer from sleep apnea. It’s pretty straight forward. With sleep apnea, you can stop breathing for 10-30 seconds at a time while sleeping. These short stops in breathing can happen up to 400 times every night. If you have sleep apnea, the periods of not breathing may make you wake up from deep sleep. If you are waking up all night long, you aren't getting enough rest from your sleep and as a result, depression can easily kick in.
In our 6 Steps Report, we talk about the importance of proper sleep habits. But if you have sleep apnea, depression can be difficult to get rid off. So, what do you do?
• Stop all use of alcohol or sleep medicines. (These relax the muscles in the back of your throat, making it harder for you to breathe.)
• Quit smoking.
• If you are overweight, lose weight.
• Sleep on your side instead of on your back.
There are airway masks and certain dental devices can also be used to treat mild cases of obstructive sleep apnea. Depression can often lift because these devices move your jaw forward or open your airway to make breathing easier and you get a good night sleep. So, talk to your doctor. Then you can begin to apply 1 of the 6 powerful ingredients to cure depression!
