Herbal treatment for sleep apnea relief

Sleep apnea is one of the most common sleep disturbance problems in America.  It ruins the sleep of an estimated 40 million Americans on a regular basis.  Experience has shown that 60% of the people who try overt solutions like CPAP, BiPAP and dental appliances cannot tolerate them long-term. 

There is a simpler and more appropriate way to deal with this condition.

As we fall asleep, we move from stage one (drowsiness) into stage two where muscular activity is inhibited (blocked).  It is called “reduction of muscle tonus.” 

This is a function that occurs primarily to keep the dreamer from physically acting out the movements of their dreams that will occur in REM sleep.

Unfortunately, as we age, the inhibition of skeletal muscles causes an unintentional reduction in the signal to the diaphragm muscle. 

When in stage two sleep, our breathing becomes shallower and shallower due to insufficient signal strength to the diaphragmatic muscles.  In sleep apnea sufferers, breathing will stop completely.

When the carbon dioxide level gets high enough, the brain intervenes and causes the body to make a large and immediate inhalation. 

This causes a large pressure differential in the pharynx and literally sucks the sagging-soft palate into the airway.  This obstructs the flow and causes a loud “SNORT” disturbing sleep or awakening the subject. 

Upon awakening or returning to stage 1 sleep, the reduction of muscle tonus for entry into stage two sleep is released and respiration begins again in a somewhat normal manner.  Then the cycle repeats again.

Sleep apnea is NOT caused by a sagging soft palate, it is exacerbated by that condition.

The problem is caused by the reduction in signal from your brain that reaches your diaphragm.  Shortly after your breathing stops, you take a rapid inhalation and this sucks the soft palate into the airway with a snort; disturbing your sleep. 

The appropriate intervention is to enhance the communication from your brain to your diaphragm so that you breathe deeply and steadily throughout the night.

Lobelia acts as a respiratory stimulant does just that.  It has been used for thousands of years to treat respiratory conditions.  This herb will actually increase the level of respiration sufficiently so that your breathing does not stop during muscular inhibition.  It will maintain deep steady breathing through the stage 2 sleep period. 

Thyme actually improves the ability of the lungs to exchange CO2 for oxygen.  To round out the combination, Chamomile aids the subject in relaxing and Cramp Bark helps the upper trapezius muscles to relax supporting better nerve transmission through the nerves emanating from between the cervical vertebrae C3, C4 and C5.

This bouquet of herbs enhances respiration, relaxes muscles that restrict nervous flow and increases drowsiness. 

It represents a holistic natural solution to sleep apnea.  It is non-habit forming and no preconditioning is required.  What’s more, it addresses the cause of the problem without drugs, machines or surgery.

Of course, if you don’t want to be troubled with filling herbal capsules, this unique and patented combination of herbs is available from Nature’s Rite. 

The product is called Sleep Apnea Relief and can be purchased online at  You owe it to yourself to give it a try.
