How Sleep Apnea Prevents You from Curing Itself
Sleep apnea is becoming one of the most worrisome condition for health advocates. It’s been linked too many diseases to list here and cripples the life of sufferers.
But nobody was ready for what a new study published in the journal Sleep revealed.
Apparently, one of the effects of sleep apnea is to prevent you from doing the one thing you need to do to combat the disease.
Fortunately, there is a way around this.
The researchers wanted to find out whether the bodies of sleep apnea sufferers were less capable of physical exercise than those of good sleepers were. To be more precise, can their hearts and lungs handle the same amount of exercise as those of good sleepers can?
They surveyed already existing literature on the subject and identified 45 studies with 5,379 subjects that met sufficiently strict scientific study criteria.
They firstly discovered that people without sleep apnea could use 3.096 milliliters per kilogram of body weight per minute more oxygen than those with sleep apnea.
If your body can consume a lot of oxygen during exercise, you are healthy and don’t strain your body beyond safe limits during exercise.
But if you cannot get enough oxygen around your body while exercising, your ability to exercise productively will be impaired, and you will have to strain unacceptably hard to get your exercise done.
And whereas healthy people’s oxygen consumption increases over time as they workout, the same thing doesn’t happen for those suffering sleep apneas.
Moreover, people without sleep apnea had a maximal heart rate 8.423 beats per minute higher than those without sleep apnea, meaning that their cardiovascular systems could handle a faster heart rate during exercise than those of sleep apnea sufferers could.
This is especially worrisome since sleep apnea is very often caused by being overweight. And to lose weight, we need to exercise, which, according to this study, people with sleep apnea have very difficult time with.

How Marijuana Affects Insomnia
With the big surge of medical Marijuana, researchers are testing this substance on every condition under the sun.
And why not insomnia? After all Marijuana makes many people feel sleepy, relaxed and drowsy.
In a recent edition of the Journal of Addictive Diseases, researchers divided their 98 subjects into three groups:
– daily marijuana users,
– non-daily marijuana users,
– and non-users.
38.8% of daily users had insomnia, compared to 10.3% of non-daily users, and 20% of non-users.
This indicates that Marijuana is rather more harmful than helpful when it comes to sleep.
But when they took into account their subject’s levels of depression and anxiety, they could no longer find an association between daily marijuana use and insomnia.
This suggests that the negative mood that marijuana brings about in some people plays a larger role in insomnia than the marijuana itself.
So, if you’re being prescribed medical Marijuana for pain or whatever other reason, pay attention to the mood effects it has on you.
If your mood doesn’t change (or improves) keep on, but if you begin experiencing depression or anxiety it’s better to find other medicine.
