Obstructive Sleep Apnea Treatment

Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a serious condition that effects as many as one in every four people in the United States. Snoring is a clear sign there is an obstruction in the airway. When the body is lacking oxygen there is a chain reaction that begins to occur and this can lead to many other health issues including obesity, hypertension, and diabetes.

In addition to these co-morbidities, OSA has been shown to decrease cognitive function and increase daytime sleepiness, leading to a greater risk of automobile accidents and other life altering issues. Look through the list of common symptoms below. If you or someone you know is experiencing any of these signs or symptoms, it may be due to obstructive sleep apnea.

Whether you are located in Geneva, Illinois or in the surrounding suburbs, we love helping patients with obstructive sleep apnea. Whole Human Health can confirm symptoms and side-effects that are OSA related and begin a non-invasive, all-natural OSA treatment plan including oropharyngeal-linual exercises, weight loss, and natural supplementation. If disease progression has gone beyond natural care we partner with sleep specialists who can do additional testing and implement continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) therapy, oral appliance therapy or surgery if necessary.
