FOREWORD

PART-A
Scientists from Karolinska Institute, Sweden (a research-led medical university in Solna within the Stockholm urban area of Sweden) published a paper in Dec 2009 in the British Medical Journal, concluding and revealing the scientific fact that weight loss can definitely help cure moderate sleep apnea and severe sleep apnea.

American researchers from Obesity Research and Education, Temple University School of Medicine, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA  published several papers in DiabetesCare, JAMA Internal Medicine (a monthly peer-reviewed medical journal published by the American Medical Association), and in other medical journals revealing the fact that there is a strong association among the conditions obesity, type 2 diabetes and obstructive sleep apnea. Many obese people with type 2 diabetes were diagnosed with obstructive sleep apnea. Several randomized studies conducted by researchers indicated that weight loss significantly lowered the Desaturation Index (number of sleep apnea events per hour) in obese people and so it is possible to reverse obstructive sleep apnea by losing weight.

This book “Reversing Sleep Apnea authored by Dr. RK” provides the very practical proof that sleep apnea can be reversed by losing weight. Dr. RK provided all the real-time data on how he successfully reversed his obstructive sleep apnea. He reported that his Desaturation Index dropped from 28 events/hr to 0.6 event/hour when he lost 40 pounds of his body weight, and when he lowered his body mass index (BMI) to perfectly normal.

If you have any physical obstruction or blockage in your throat, nose or mouth, it is not possible to fully reverse your sleep apnea. However, depending on how much excess body weight you have, you can always improve your Desaturation Index (number of sleep apnea events/hour) and mean SpO2 (percentage saturation of oxygen in the blood) by losing weight. By improving the Desaturation Index and mean SpO2, a sleep apnea patient can feel a lot better. If you developed obstruction sleep apnea, caused due to excessive weight gain, you can fully reverse your sleep apnea and lower your Desaturation Index to perfectly normal by losing all that excess body weight. There are many scientific papers with randomized studies revealing this fact. This book discusses about those scientific publications.

This is the only book that has everything a sleep apnea patient needs to learn and gain concept regarding this dangerous sleep disorder. This book is very resourceful and so every sleep apnea patient should benefit from it by reading and understanding all the therapies so nicely explained. One of those therapies could suit your disorder and could free you from sleep apnea, or improve your sleep disorder. You need to try and stick to the therapy that suits your body and your sleep disorder.

PART-B
If you have been diagnosed with obstructive sleep apnea, whether severe, moderate or mild, it is a life challenge to deal with and battle with because of the careless and unhealthy living habits you have adopted. You have been eating out way too often, not exercising enough, and have been adding pounds to your weight. Obesity is the major cause of obstructive sleep apnea. It is your responsibility to accept the challenge and take quick action against this sleep disorder you have developed.
   
With determination and steadfastness, you can not only improve your condition, but also strengthen your ability to respond to your body’s functionality and lead a much better life. You should always remember that knowledge is the power, so you must equip your mind with a deep understanding of sleep apnea by collecting as much information as possible, and by reading and researching a lot. Get ready to battle.
   
Your biggest decision is your commitment in setting a goal with an objective, focusing on your goal and staying focused until you fully manifest your goal. Motivation, commitment, a strong desire to succeed, self-discipline and high willpower are the essential qualities you need to implement on yourself to be successful. By awakening the giant within yourself, you can become a sleep apnea guru.

You will go on CPAP therapy. CPAP means “Continuous Positive Airway Pressure,” which further means that the CPAP machine helps maintain continuous, positive, very low and comfortable pressure in the airway of your throat, and keeps the airway open all the time whenever you sleep with it. As long as you wear the CPAP machine during the night while sleeping, the CPAP machine kills most apneas and hypopneas, and keeps your AHI (Apnea Hypopnea Index) perfectly normal. As the airway remains always open, sufficient amount of air passes into the lungs freely, and maintains normal blood oxygen levels (Normal SpO2 = 96% to 99%) all the time during sleep. You wake up in the morning satisfied with your sleep and completely refreshed. You would not experience the symptoms of obstructive sleep apnea, such as tiredness with low energy, when you wake up in the morning. As you sleep all the night with perfectly normal SpO2 levels, your overall health improves. If you take appropriate steps to lose weight, your sleep apnea will be progressively healed.
   
You will love learning and mastering the concept of eating whole foods only and avoiding processed and refined foods. You will become an active member of a local gym, and start exercising every day. It is very likely that you will lose some weight naturally without ever using drugs or hunger suppressants prescribed by your doctor. Even some 10 to 20 pounds of weight loss would have a significant impact on your obstructive sleep apnea progress. The number of sleep apnea events per hour during your sleep would significantly decline, switching you from severe to moderate or from moderate to mild sleep apnea, and allowing you to feel a lot better than you have ever felt since your diagnosis.
   
However a substantial weight loss that lowers your Body Mass Index (BMI) to perfectly normal (18.5 to 24.9 Kg/m 2) would completely wipe out obstructive sleep apnea from your body. This is a proven fact, believe it or not. You will be amazed to witness your own breathtaking performance and live with a joyous feeling as your overnight pulse oximetry tests would reveal that your obstructive sleep apnea has just been reversed, and that you are free. You would declare yourself a proud winner in the battle against obstructive sleep apnea. Many surrounding people would be intimidated, become envious and a few even surprised.
 
You would no longer be sleeping with the CPAP machine. You could pack your CPAP machine and accessories in a bag and leave it in your closet or even sell it off on Craigslist. This is what exactly happened to Dr. RK who wrote the book “Reversing Sleep Apnea.”

This inspirational guidebook provides us with the scientific proof that exists to reverse sleep apnea. There are scientific journal publications revealing the fact that sleep apnea can be reversed by losing weight. Whether you are obese or overweight and diagnosed with sleep apnea, you must refer to this book and I bet you will certainly get inspired and benefited!

Dr. Gary Foster, a clinical psychologist and obesity investigator, the former founder and director of the Center for Obesity Research and Education at Temple University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA where he was the Professor of Medicine, Public Health and Psychology, published several research papers confirming that the symptoms of obstructive sleep apnea and the desaturation index (defined as the number of sleep apnea events or episodes per hour) can significantly be reduced among obese people by losing at least 10% of the body weight. The more weight a sleep apnea patient loses, the more effective and successful the reversal of obstructive sleep apnea could be.

Dr. Erik Hemmingsson and Dr. Kari Johansson along with their fellow-researchers of the Karolinska Institute, Sweden published a paper in December 2009 in the British Medical Journal, concluding that weight loss can definitely help cure moderate sleep apnea and severe sleep apnea.

Dr. RK in this book “Reversing Sleep Apnea: Proof that sleep Apnea Can be Reversed By Losing Weight” provides us with the real time data of his weight loss results and the procedures he developed and adopted on how to lose weight fast and how to reverse sleep apnea by losing weight. When he lost 40 pounds of his body weight, his body mass index (BMI) was calculated to be perfectly normal. He reported that when his body resumed perfectly normal weight, his obstructive sleep apnea and other health disorders disappeared once and for all.

5.0 out of 5 stars Impressively Comprehensive All-In-One Sleep Apnea Guide!

Reviewed in the United States on June 13, 2021

This book is awesome, well-organized, well-written, and filled with interesting facts, anecdotes and worth-reading quotes and paragraphs. Given below is a worth-reading paragraph:

Obesity is the major cause of obstructive sleep apnea. When a person is overweight or obese, the fat cells infiltrate the neck and throat tissues so they lose firmness and are more likely to collapse on to the upper airway of the throat, thereby blocking the airway. At the same time, the neck and chin become enlarged and the airway becomes narrower. Too much weight gain also compresses the chest and makes it difficult to inhale deeply and freely. Sleep apnea statistics indicate that not only can obesity cause obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) can also worsen obesity. Disrupted sleep due to apneas causes the ghrelin level to go up, and leptin level to go down. Leptin produces the feeling of satiety whereas ghrelin has the opposite effect. When this happens, low leptin levels make you eat more and as a result you gain weight. Weight gain and obstructive sleep apnea go hand in hand.

If you are diagnosed with obstructive sleep apnea as a result of severe weight gain, this book can save your life, and help you reverse your obstructive sleep apnea in a matter of months if not years. Prescribe this book to your sleep apnea doctor, and tell your doctor to read this book before he prescribes you and puts you on CPAP therapy for decades, or until the end of your life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lower Your Oxygen Desaturation Index Using This Book!

Reviewed in the United Kingdom on October 13, 2021

This book has many treatment methods to relieve and reverse obstructive sleep apnea, very beautifully explained in a very convincing way with scientific details. Doctors don’t teach you how to lower your Oxygen Desaturation Index (ODI), but this is the only book that shows you everything about improving and reversing obstructive sleep apnea (OSA).

Many people with type 2 diabetes are also likely to develop sleep apnea, and the sleep apnea disease over time can lead to type 2 diabetes. I have lowered my Oxygen Desaturation Index (ODI) at least by 10 points by losing excess body weight exactly as recommended in this book. This book is packed with colossal sums of information to understand the fundamentals of sleep apnea topic, and is quite accommodating, impressive and enjoyable. I enjoyed the writer's methodology, well-researched and blended with knowledgeable information in every chapter. Everything in this book unquestionably makes sense and I found it useful in all respects. I realized that this book indeed would be helpful in every possible way to improve and reverse sleep apnea.
