Synopsis: Reversing Obesity & Sleep Apnea Simultaneously

INTERPRETATION OF THE OVERNIGHT PULSE OXIMETRY TEST RESULTS OF Dr. RK

 

WHEN I LOST 40 POUNDS, MY BODY RESUMED NORMAL WEIGHT.
My Body Mass Index (BMI) dropped to perfectly normal value.
WHEN MY BODY RESUMED NORMAL WEIGHT, MY SLEEP APNEA DISAPPEARED!

As shown in the aforementioned table, when I was first diagnosed with obstructive sleep apnea, my overnight pulse oximtetry test done on 07-Feb-2015 showed that my desaturation index was 22 events/hr. When I repeated the test on 07-Apr-2015, my desaturation index went up to 28 events/hr, which means I would soon be diagnosed with severe sleep apnea (if the desaturation index is ≥ 30 events/hr, that indicates severe sleep apnea).

With severe sleep apnea, I knew that I could suffocate myself due to the blocked airway and could die in my sleep. It could happen any time if I live with negligence. I therefore took action and awakened the giant within myself. My extensive reading and research suggested me that "I need to lose weight fast." I was then committed to losing weight and created my very own weight-loss diet incorporating daily exercise (running on a treadmill every day). It was like an uphill battle. It was exactly like fighting against a devil because sleep apnea prevents weight loss. Even if I went to gym and ran on a treadmill twice a day, the stubborn fat refused to melt away for a long time.

But my further reading and research suggested me that I needed to do some adjustments to my diet and lower the calories being consumed from junk foods. I learned that when calories being burned by my body are more than the calories being consumed, I would lose weight. I then created a new weight-loss diet, by making drastic changes to my diet by incorporating whole foods only, and by removing all processed foods and refined foods. As a result, my weight started melting away day by day right in front of my eyes, and I accomplished my weight loss goal.

After losing 40 pounds of weight and 12 inches around the waist, naturally without ever using drugs or supplements, my weight dropped from 190 pounds to 150 pounds, my Body Mass Index (BMI) dropped from 30.5 (obese) to 24.1 (perfectly normal). The Oxygen Desaturation Index (ODI) from an overnight pulse oximetry test dropped from a high-risk 28 events/hr to a stunning 0.6 event/hr in 22 months, and I completely reversed my obstructive sleep apnea.

The CPAP therapy, being the best treatment available currently, controls sleep apnea and keeps the SpO2 level (percentage saturation of blood oxygen level) and desaturation index perfectly normal only during the time you wear the CPAP machine correctly and use it correctly. It is important to note here that CPAP therapy does not heal, cure or reverse sleep apnea. But weight loss gradually heals, cures and reverses obstructive sleep apnea.
 
However I must watch my weight constantly and prevent it from regaining through caution, care, self-discipline and willpower. As long as I maintain the normal body weight, and maintain normal body mass index (BMI), my obstructive sleep apnea should remain reversed for the rest of my life.

Proof That Sleep Apnea Can Be Reversed By Losing Weight

 

AUTHOR’S UPDATE

During 2015-2016, when I lost 40 pounds of my body weight and when my body resumed perfectly normal weight, I not only reversed my obesity but also simultaneously reversed my obstructive sleep apnea and my chronic insomnia. Immediately after I lost 40 pounds, I have slowly introduced the following changes to my daily diet routine and my lifestyle during the past 5 years (during 2016-2021):

(i) I have slowly introduced oven-baked skinless chicken, turkey or fish into my Egg White Omelet recipe.

(ii) I started eating my breakfast daily: one baked whole wheat pita bread after spreading a tablespoon of creamy organic coconut oil, and a cup of organic coffee.

(iii) I sometimes even replace my Egg-White Omelet with a home-cooked meal made from brown rice, rotisserie chicken (or fish), a variety of organic vegetables, greens, leafy vegetables, chickpeas, kidney beans and organic yogurt.

(iv) I started eating unsalted and dry-roasted cashews, walnuts, soaked almonds, blanched almonds, and protein bars as my in-between meal snacks on an irregular basis. I regularly eat organic Kamut puffs and organic fruits as my in-between meal snack to avoid being hungry.

(v) I sometimes even cheat on my diet, and eat deep-fried
French fries, hashbrowns,
samosas, spring rolls, and Oh Henry bars (which are my favorite snacks) once or twice a week.

(vi) I even started eating at a buffet (a heavy meal of all kinds of unlimited items of food including the dessert) in restaurants once every week or once every fortnight. Whenever I eat a heavy meal in a restaurant, I do not eat any other meals (except a few fruits) on that day. That means,
whenever I eat a heavy meal in a restaurant, I eat only "one meal" on that day.

(vii) However I never discontinued or skipped my daily exercise program, not even a day. Everyday, every single day (7 days a week), I go to gym and do 1 hour of treadmill, or at least 30 minutes of treadmill and 30 minutes of bike or other equipment.

Miraculously, my weight remained steady and normal at 150 pounds during the past 5 years (2016-2021). And I am confident that my weight will remain steady and normal for the rest of my life. I now know how to keep my weight perfectly normal and well controlled.


LESSON LEARNED:
As long as I carefully and responsibly keep my body weight perfectly normal, my obstructive sleep apnea would remain reversed.

Reversing Sleep Apnea
Proof That Sleep Apnea Can Be Reversed By Losing Weight

FOREWORD

DID YOU KNOW HOW DANGEROUS SLEEP APNEA IS?

PART-A
Did you know how dangerous sleep apnea is?

(i) Statistics Posted By ResMed [1]
The following statistics were posted by a CPAP manufacturing company ResMed:

 
 Approximately 42 million American adults have sleep disordered breathing (SDB).
 
 1 in 5 adults has mild obstructive sleep apnea (OSA).
 
 1 in 15 has moderate to severe obstructive sleep apnea (OSA).
 
 9% of middle-aged women and 25% of middle-aged men suffer from OSA.
 
 Prevalence similar to asthma (20 million) and diabetes (23.6 million) of US population.
 
 Did you know 75% of severe sleep disorder breathing (SDB) cases remain undiagnosed.


(ii) Statistics Posted By Men’s Health [2]
Around
50 to 70 million Americans get poor or insufficient sleep. [8] An estimated 4 percent to 6 percent of American men suffer from sleep apnea, and most of them deny and don’t even realize how dangerous the sleep apnea is.

(iii) Sleep Apnea Sufferers Caused Car Crashes [4]
Sleep apnea is linked to car crashes, diabetes, heart disease and even pregnancy complications in women. Dr. Alan Mulgrew, MD and his colleagues at the University of British Columbia, Vancouver, Canada compared the records of motor vehicle accidents of 800 patients who had sleep apnea with the records of another 800 patients who did not suffer from sleep apnea. Their study suggested that people with sleep apnea are five times more likely to have car crashes than those without sleep apnea.
 

(iv) Star Wars Actress “Carrie Fisher” Died from Sleep Apnea in 2017 [11c]
  The American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM) has issued a warning emphasizing how dangerous sleep apnea is after confirming the cause of death of the 60-year old Star Wars actress Carrie Fisher, who died  on December 27, 2017,  as “severe sleep apnea and other undetermined factors, including metal illness and drug use.” The doctors determined that the actress Carrie Fisher died after suffering from “Untreated Severe Sleep Apnea,” for a long time, which increases the risk of atherosclerotic heart disease (coronary artery disease), heart failure, high blood pressure, diabetes, stroke, depression, and other ailments.
 

14. Supreme Court Justice Honorable "Antonin Scalia" Died in His Sleep
on Feb 13, 2016 at the age of 79 when he forgot to turn on his CPAP machine and slept. [11c]

 
There are many other actors died from sleep apnea, and there are very many celebrities and athletes currently living with and battling sleep apnea.
Millions of men and women with sleep apnea are unaware of these aforementioned serious risk factors, and naively remain undiagnosed and untreated for a long time. Obstructive sleep apnea is a common but serious sleep disorder that repeatedly causes a person to stop breathing during the sleep, thereby lowering the blood oxygen saturation (SpO2 level) significantly. The stress that sleep apnea causes on heart and brain of a person can be so severe and harmful that long-term health consequences could be unbearable and dangerous. [11c]

 

PART-B
Scientists from Karolinska Institute, Sweden (a research-led medical university in Solna within the Stockholm urban area of Sweden) publ
ished 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-C
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, keeps the airway open all the time, and stops snoring 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, under 5 events per hour. As the airway remains always open, sufficient amount of air passes into the lungs freely, and maintains normal blood oxygen levels (SpO2 = 96% to 99%) at all the times during sleep. You wake up in the morning fully 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 your excess body weight, your obstructive sleep apnea will be progressively healed and even reversed.
   
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.”

WHAT IS THE 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, keeps the airway open all the time, and stops snoring 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, under 5 events per hour. As the airway remains always open, sufficient amount of air passes into the lungs freely, and maintains normal blood oxygen levels (SpO2 = 96% to 99%) at all the times during sleep. You wake up in the morning fully 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 your excess weight, your obstructive sleep apnea will be progressively healed and even reversed.
 

CHOOSING THE RIGHT CPAP MASK IS IMPORTANT!

You need to research (by trying several masks) and find out the suitable mask that best fits your face and your taste. In general, you don't need a full-face CPAP mask, which is very uncomfortable and annoying to sleep with, unless you are really accustomed to it. Full-face masks are annoying to many people. Many people give up CPAP therapy, and look for mouthpieces after being annoyed and fed up with full-face masks. “Philips Respironics Nuance Pro Gel Nasal Pillow Mask” is the most comfortable, easy to use and enjoyable CPAP mask. You just have to hook up or plug in the CPAP hose to the mask
by means of an adopter or connector that goes to your nose, adjust the straps on your cheeks and head, and fall asleep. It is that simple!

Nasal pillows cushions (large, medium & small).

IMPORTANT TIPS
(i) You need to tailor your own cotton covers, wrapping around the straps. Or you can use children’s socks as covers so that you can easily cover and uncover the straps by unpeeling the velcros (Each strap can be covered with one children's sock). Please remove the covers from the straps and wash and dry them once every week or every fortnight and cover the straps back. If you develop a habit of doing so, your mask lasts long (for years), and you don’t have to purchase CPAP mask once every few months. Expensive sanitizers to clean the CPAP mask and hoses are unnecessary!

(ii) The nasal pillows cushions of the mask seal your nostrils
smoothly and comfortably whenever you wear CPAP mask on your face, and are available in three sizes (large, medium & small). It is important that you should wash and clean the pillows cushion every day when you wake up in the morning, at first with warm soapy water, and then with warm water, and then wipe it with a clean towel so that it would be ready for the following night when you sleep with your CPAP machine. You should do that every day. Please do not use antibacterial wipes or disinfecting wipes to clean your nasal pillows cushion (If you do so, you could be swallowing traces of harmful chemicals).

(iii)
Every morning when you wake up, you also need to pull out the humidifier from the CPAP machine, discard the remaining water and wash it with hot water first, and then rinse it with distilled water, and then refill it with distilled water to the maximum level (never refill the humidifier with tap water, as tap water may contain contaminants and dissolved salts), and then slide it into the CPAP machine so that it would be ready for the following night when you sleep with your CPAP machine.

This book “Reversing Sleep Apnea” is the true story of Dr. RK’s yet another victory, this time over obstructive sleep apnea. We have read the book cover to cover. We were blown away by its extremely impressive contents, the breathtaking performance of Dr. RK and by the successful results he achieved.

Obstructive Sleep Apnea is one of the most difficult sleep disorders that can ever be reversed by anyone in a lifetime. But Dr. RK did it in 22 months with courage, wisdom, diligence and discipline. Perhaps he is the only one in the entire world who did it to this perfection. His extensive scientific research experience and his powerful knowledge have helped him battle and combat this dangerous life challenge, and emerge a winner. This victory came along with his glorious victory over obesity, for which we all should be proud.

This book has all the information about therapies, resources and research that every sleep apnea patient, practicing doctor, nurse or technician would ever need, in a quick glance. Grab your copy sooner rather than later.

If you are suffering from obstructive sleep apnea, this book “Reversing Sleep Apnea” ought to be your go-to guide. After living with this disorder for 22 months, Dr. RK invented a cure for his obstructive sleep apnea by identifying and removing the root cause of it. It is indeed the right way to do it.

I really appreciate the time and effort he has put into explaining the fundamentals of snoring, sleep apnea and various helpful home-based therapies with easy-to-follow and step-by-step instructions. More interestingly, he teaches us how to know if a therapy is working or not.

A must-read book for anyone with sleep apnea!

REVIEW: Reversing Sleep Apnea

Jade
5.0 out of 5 stars  Scientific Proof Exists on Reversing Obstructive Sleep Apnea!

Reviewed in the United States on February 2, 2021

Verified Purchase


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.

REVIEW

After reading the very impressive books “(i) Drinking Water Guide, (ii) Permanent Diabetes Control, (iii) The Secret to Controlling Type 2 Diabetes” authored by Dr. RK, I decided to purchase and read his “Reversing Sleep Apnea” book as well. Many people with diabetes develop also sleep apnea over time. And it is known that sleep apnea disease could cause diabetes at least to some sleep apnea patients.

Reversing sleep apnea is not at all an easy task, and losing weight is extremely difficult especially when you are suffering from sleep apnea, because sleep apnea prevents weight loss. But this smart book of reversing sleep apnea shows you all those carefully planned tips, tricks and tactics on how to lose weight in those difficult circumstances, how to accomplish your weight loss goal, and ultimately how to reverse the obstructive sleep apnea.

Even if you cannot completely reverse the sleep disorder with which you have been struggling, you will be able to significantly improve your SpO2 level (percentage oxygen saturation), and the number of sleep apnea events per hour (what is known as Oxygen Desaturation Index), which must be your goal in treating sleep apnea, whether the reversal is possible or not. Improving those numbers will certainly improve your condition, and make you feel a lot better. This book teaches all about it if you have patience to read and digest the contents.

This book must be “Your 1, 2, 3 Easy Guide” as it contains the spoon-feeding instructions. It will feed you with all the fundamentals necessary in understanding the dangerous conditions such as “snoring and sleep apnea”, and it will assist you in self-curing sleep apnea like a pro. Certainly and definitely, “Reversing Sleep Apnea” book overall is the extremely useful and practical guide, and therefore it is highly recommended!

REVIEW: Reversing Sleep Apnea

REVIEW

Normal SpO2 (Percentage Saturation of Oxygen in the Blood) at sea level is between 96% and 99%. Sleep apnea develops when a person’s SpO2 level falls below this normal range while sleeping. For a sleep apnea patient, the blood oxygen level falls below normal due to the blockage in airway located in the throat. Whenever the SpO2 level goes down significantly during the sleep, the brain wakes the patient up so that he/she can breathe in oxygen in order make up the falling oxygen level. The occurrence of this kind of activity too many times during the night causes chronic insomnia because the brain keeps waking the patient up way too many times. Which obviously means the sleep apnea and chronic insomnia are interconnected. Most sleep apnea patients also suffer from chronic insomnia.

The CPAP therapy keeps the SpO2 level perfectly normal during the sleep as long as there are no leaks in the face mask. By means of CPAP therapy, a patient can control both sleep apnea and chronic insomnia. I have read several books on sleep apnea, but nobody explained the meaning of the CPAP and CPAP Therapy as good as this author.

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 C
PAP machine kills most apneas and hypopneas, and keeps your AHI (Apnea Hypopnea Index) perfectly normal, under 5. As the airway remains always open, sufficient amount of air passes into the lungs freely, and maintains normal blood oxygen levels (SpO2 = 96% to 99%) all the time during sleep. You wake up in the morning fully 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 obstructive sleep apnea will be progressively healed and even reversed.
