How Can I Overcome Sleep Apnea?

Question: I have been diagnosed with sleep apnea, but the usual treatment hasn’t worked for me. I have tried many supplements. Can you tell me what I should do next?
  
Dr. Blaylock's Answer:
 
Sleep apnea is a disorder that occurs when a person’s breathing is interrupted during sleep. It is a growing problem in developing countries, and diet is playing a major role.

Recent research indicates that one of the major problems is chronic inflammation that damages the centers in the brain controlling breathing during sleep.

The most important thing to do is reduce visceral fat. One should also avoid all excitotoxic food additives, as they play a significant role in this disorder. This means avoiding all aspartame, Splenda, MSG, hydrolyzed proteins, soy products, caseinate, autolyzed yeast, and similar additives.

Resveratrol, curcumin, quercetin, hesperidin, and magnesium also reduce the inflammation.

As one reduces the visceral fat, the inflammation will subside.
