Organic CBD oil to relieve sleep apnea?
Sleep apnea is a breathing disorder that occurs when breathing is interrupted during sleep. When left untreated, sleep apnea has consequences on quality of life and health, both in the short and long term.
What is sleep apnea?
In France, sleep apnea syndrome affects up to 19.7% of the adult population and up to 30.5% of people aged over 70.
Sleep apnea is caused by airway obstruction; the muscles of the throat and tongue relax and block the passage of air, causing temporary pauses in breathing. These pauses in breathing can last from a few seconds to several minutes, and occur several times per hour. The consequences of these breathing pauses are a drop in oxygen saturation, an increase in blood pressure and frequent awakenings during the night which disrupt the quality of sleep.
Some people are at greater risk of developing sleep apnea, such as older adults, smokers, people who regularly use alcohol or sleeping pills, and people with a family history of sleep apnea.
People who are obese and/or have excess neck fat, anatomical abnormalities such as a narrow throat or enlarged tonsils are at greater risk of developing sleep apnea.
Sleep apnea can also be caused by a problem with the brain's breathing signals. This happens when the brain doesn't send the proper signals to the respiratory muscles to breathe. Finally, certain illnesses (hypotension, diabetes, heart failure, etc.) can also increase the risk of sleep apnea.
In the event of severe sleep apnea , it is obviously recommended to consult a doctor to obtain adequate medical treatment.
How to treat sleep apnea?
In addition to affecting sleep, sleep apnea proves to be disabling on a daily basis for people who suffer from it. It can cause fatigue, mood disorders, reduced attention span, permanent stress and an increased risk of heart disease.
To prevent and reduce sleep apnea, here are four tips to adopt during daily life:
- Do regular physical activity: Doing regular physical activity can help prevent sleep apnea syndrome. It helps reduce cardiovascular risk and the risk of being overweight, while promoting drowsiness during the day and better quality of sleep.
- Perform breathing exercises: certain exercises promote relaxation and deep breathing, and can thus help combat sleep apnea. Meditation exercises allow you to concentrate on breathing; a few minutes a day are enough to improve your breathing capabilities.
- Changing your sleeping position: Sleeping on your side, rather than your back, can help prevent airway obstruction. There is a custom-made device called a “mandibular advancement orthosis” that allows the lower jaw to be held forward during sleep, helping to keep the airway open.
- Avoid the consumption of certain products: exciting products such as coffee, tea, sodas, alcohol and energy drinks should be avoided at the end of the day. Their consumption has the effect of causing difficulty falling asleep and waking up at night.
What is CBD?
CBD , or cannabidiol, is a molecule extracted from hemp plants (cannabis sativa). Like THC, it is part of the large cannabinoid family.
Unlike THC, CBD presents no danger to health since it does not cause any psychotropic “high” effects and does not lead to any addiction.
CBD is favored for its soothing properties. According to scientific studies , cannabidiol helps relieve stress, regulate emotions, calm pain or even fight against sleep problems. It is important to remember that at present and despite the fact that CBD is commonly consumed, no scientific study is officially recognized and we therefore cannot make health claims to CBD.
