Sleep Apnea: Retrain Your Breathing
If you've ever missed out on sleep due to a loud snorer next to you, it can make you want to shove your head into a pillow and scream.

Or, if you've ever been told how loud you snore, you may not think of it as a big deal. But, you could be suffering from sleep apnea, and it could be causing some serious health damage.

Sleep apnea occurs when your breathing repeatedly stops and starts, causing you to snore loudly while also often gasping for breath.

Sleep apnea is a serious and dangerous condition that affects an estimated 22 million Americans. Unfortunately, 80 percent of the cases of moderate and severe obstruction sleep apnea go undiagnosed.

What is breathing retraining and how can it help treat sleep apnea?

Tess Graham author of, Relief from Snoring and Sleep Apnea, a step-by-step guide to restful sleep and better health through changing the way you breathe, shares insights into how breathing restraints can be damaging to your health.

Through the book, online breathing course, media interviews and workshops, Tess debunks myths and misinformation about breathing and gives people tools to help them begin to breathe better, feel better and sleep better straight away.

Graham joins Dr. Mike to discuss Breathing Retraining for people with sleep apnea.
