Are Natural Sleep Remedies Better Than CPAP?


Today we are going to explore healing yourself of Sleep Apnea using Natural Alternatives. Alternative medicine has finally garnered significant attention for many reasons in the last several decades. Much of alternative medicine means treatment is geared toward examining personal habits, personal nutritional patterns, and living conditions. This type of assessment addresses health needs with sensible solutions. This practice is done if medicine itself is deemed too aggressive.

Please remember that if your sleep issues are dire ( like severe sleep apnea, central sleep apnea, etc.), the medical steps necessary to learn how to treat sleep apnea must be done.

But what if you have a very mild case of sleep apnea, snoring and/or insomnia? The possible answer(s) to this situation is what we explore below. Let’s dig in and start with a question and some quick answers.


Do you struggle with sleep apnea, snoring or insomnia?

Here are 7 steps to overcome these issues and get better sleep:

1. Look at your diet – support metabolism with protein, healthy fat and fiber

2. Avoid alcohol, caffeine, smoking and sedatives

3. Treat acid reflux

4. Get a humidifier in your bedroom

5. Sleep on your side

6. Exercise

7. Use essential oils – peppermint, lavender and eucalyptus to enhance your room atmosphere.

Or the simple chart below just might solve your sleep woes.



If none of the above helps, let’s address another set of questions, and more answers.


Maybe your sleep issues go a bit deeper? What can be done?

Did you know that over 50% of people within America are deficient in magnesium?While these statistics address the United States, the number of magnesium deficiencies is growing throughout North America.

While these statistics address the United States, the number of magnesium deficiencies is growing throughout North America.

So how do you know if you’re deficient in spite of this data?



Here are 8 warnings signs that you might have a magnesium deficiency.

1.) Headaches

2.) Muscle Cramps

3.) Osteoporosis or weak bones

4.) Diabetes or unbalanced blood sugar

5.) High blood pressure

6.) Insomnia

7.) Anxiety or Depression

8.) Muscle Pain or Fibromyalgia.  Along with these warning signs, constipation could be another warning sign.

The best way to add magnesium into your diet is with foods like fruits, vegetables, or sprouted nuts and seeds. However, avocados are considered a key recommendation for getting a solid source of magnesium into your diet. If foods are unavailable, consider tablets or supplementation.


Is it possible your sleep issues go even deeper?

Most fatigue problems and adrenal compromise come from issues within the adrenal glands.Therefore these glands work harder than usual with little or no recovery time against stressors (like overwork combined with a lack of sleep, etc.) If this is you, read on.

There are three steps you can explore in order to get rid of adrenal fatigue (also known as exhaustion) for good.

The first starts with your diet. Foods that you will want away from are:

  • caffeine
  • sugar
  • hydrogenated oils.

Foods that are high in vitamin B12 and Magnesium are going to support your adrenal glands. And blood sugar levels benefit, so add these foods into your diet. Moreover, these foods support physical, mental and emotional recovery from day to day stresses. Add foods like

  • coconut oil
  • coconut milk
  • coconut
  • olives
  • olive oil
  • raw dairy products
  • grass-fed butter
  • organic meats
  • loads of vegetables
  • seaweed

Secondly, you will want to support your adrenals by taking supplements like: adaptogenic herbs (such as ashwagandha, holy basil, and liquorish root, which will help your body to adapt and deal with stress).

Additionally a vitamin B complex, magnesium, vitamin D, selenium, zinc combination support in the healing of your adrenals.

Lastly, focus on lowering your stress levels with:

  • 8-10 hours of natural sleep per night
  • meditation to address your stressors with balanced thinking techniques, therefore leading to emotional balance
  • add fun activities into your routine
  • exercise.


If you follow the above steps, you are well on your way to naturally healing adrenal fatigue and ease your sleep trouble away for good. Natural sleep is closer than you think.
