It’s the one thing you crave more than anything else in the world.
No, you’re not after money or power. And you’re not chasing fame either.
All you want is a decent night of sleep. And it shouldn’t be THIS HARD to get.
But if you have sleep apnea, you know how hard a good night’s rest is to come by. This frightening condition literally CHOKES YOU in your sleep.
Some people wake up dozens, even hundreds of times a night, gasping for air.
The mainstream solutions for sleep apnea so far range from beyond annoying to downright useless. Like, for example, the awkward and uncomfortable CPAP masks that are almost impossible to sleep with.
So now, mainstream medicine docs say they’ve cooked up a new plan. And this one aims to erase sleep apnea so you can FINALLY sleep through the night without those oxygen lapses.
But does it REALLY work? Let’s find out…
Invasive sleep apnea surgery reshapes your mouth
On the plus side, the new option isn’t a drug. And it’s not another uncomfortable device like CPAP.
On the minus side, it’s in many ways worse. Because it’s a surgery that essentially reshapes the inside of your mouth.
They yank out your tonsils if you still have them and alter and move your palate (the roof of your mouth).
And then they use… I’m not even kidding here… high-intensity radiofrequency to SHRINK your tongue.
It’s as painful as it sounds. It can leave your mouth a bloody mess for days or even weeks afterward. And because they mucked around with your palate, it could even change your sense of taste.
Some people who’ve already fallen for this incredibly invasive surgery report a “feeling of sticking in the throat” or “swallow dysfunction,” which sounds REALLY uncomfortable to me.
The tongue slimdown that doesn’t require surgery
So is it worth it? I’ll let you be the judge.
Once the bleeding stopped, there was about a 27 percent reduction in apnea events each night. It’s a modest improvement and one that I’m sure any sleep apnea sufferer would appreciate.
But the number becomes even a little less impressive when you find out that nonsurgical options… such as advice on sleep positions, eating, drinking… can cut apnea by about 10 percent on their own.
Sure, the surgery is better. But it’s not exactly what I’d call a game-changer, either. And if you have or suspect you have sleep apnea yourself, there are some far less extreme things you can try.
The first option, of course, is weight loss. Even dropping a LITTLE excess weight can often deliver pretty big results when it comes to sleep apnea. And the second is a way to get one of the surgery benefits without going under the knife.
You can actually SHRINK your tongue without that high-powered radiofrequency blast.
No, it’s not a tongue diet. As crazy as it might sound, it’s tongue exercises, and you can learn how to do them for free right here.
