One of the important phenomena that modern medicine knows is that of sleep apnea. Not a few people suffer from this phenomenon, and despite the early symptoms, they still have to bear to suffer from this phenomenon.

The causes of sleep apnea are due to the blockage of our airways, due to the tongue or due to the excessive relaxation of the muscles of the palate, and thus the passage of oxygen to the brain is cut off.

Symptoms of this problem are snoring, daily fatigue, dry mouth, night sweating, nocturnal urination, night thirst, headache upon waking, daytime fatigue, headache, high blood pressure, and circadian rhythm disturbances.

When we, or one of our relatives, suffer from these symptoms, we must treat this problem as soon as possible. Studies have shown a clear relationship between sleep disorders and various problems, such as heart disease, high blood pressure, behavioral and cognitive disorders, memory problems, erection problems, problems with listening and concentration (ADHD) and other problems.

There are many methods of treating apnea during the day:

From a behavioral point of view, it is possible to avoid alcohol, weight loss, etc., from a mechanical point of view, a CPAP mask (Continuous positive airway pressure) or a dental device can be used. And then undergo surgery, which clarifies the base of the tongue, uvula, radio waves or lasers. It is important to mention that no one treatment is better than another, and every patient is suitable for another treatment. Whoever wants to treat apnea, in the unconventional way, can use the classic homeopathy.

Classical homeopathy is a treatment method that stimulates the immune system, without the introduction of chemicals into the body or without the need for surgery. According to this method, attention should be paid not only to the person’s illness, but to the person as a whole, that is, his physical, psychological, and emotional problems, as well as the course of his life. Unlike other treatments, every patient here receives another treatment that suits him. The goal of treatment is not only to treat the disease, but also to understand the conditions of its formation, and thus to prevent its return in the future. The treatment is done without side effects, and its effect is long-term.

Treatment begins with an interview, at the end of which the patient receives the homeopathy medications that suit him or her. After that, the treatment progress is monitored. The evaluation is for the patient to feel better, first in their basic needs such as sleep, appetite and mood. And that, later on, he also recovered from apnea and other problems (homeopathic medicines treat the person, not the disease).

If we take, for example, a 60-year-old patient who suffered from asthma attacks and apnea, and during an interview with him, he described his lifestyle and psyche as a person who does not rest and remains stressed all the time. This person was given medication that helped calm, rest, and relieve the asthma attacks, as well as the apnea. The drug cured him both physically and emotionally. He can now allow himself to rest, and even stop smoking.

Finally, when you suffer from sleep apnea, the problem must be addressed quickly. Because the harm is not only in the short term, but in the long term, it demands that the problem be dealt with in ways that are not aggressive, and for this purpose specifically, there are alternative medicine in general and homeopathy in particular.
