Sleep Apnea is a very serious condition that can cause fatal heart problems. It is a must, therefore, to take appropriate treatment for Sleep Apnea.
The usual treatments undertaken in conventional medicine include:
- Maintaining continuous positive air way pressure with a small bedside machine which keeps the airway open during sleep by means of flow of air with pressure into the throat.
- Medications are not the primary step of treatment, however certain brain stimulators like Modafinil is used to improve the wakefulness due to excessive sleepiness.
Acupuncture with auriculotherapy with three to five sessions a week.
Auriculotherapy is the needle stimulation on certain points of the ear which help to maintain proper balance between sleep and lung issues thereby improving sleep.
- Surgery- Surgical removal of obstructing agents like tonsils
However, the above treatments may or may not provide permanent solution for the Apnea, because they do not target the underlying cause.
Homeopathy, on the other hand, has been incredibly successful for the resolution of the disease because of its holistic approach.
