Weight … You don’t have to lose weight AND You can have great sleep?


I have read a lot of information on sleep apnea and it is often associated with being overweight. However, weight is not the direct cause of sleep apnea. It is estimated that nearly 35% of US adults are obese and it is estimated that 20% of US adults have sleep apnea. Even if these statistics overlap, this suggests that millions of adults are obese and do not have sleep apnea. Now, I am an athletic person who has been skinny most of my life. In fact, when I was in high schoolScreen Shot 2014-10-09 at 9.25.05 AM, I was embarrassed when all of my friends were growing taller and more muscular and I was stuck at 5’5″ and on the skinny side. In my 2 years of research and eliminating sleep apnea, I have found that good posture is a key contributor to the quality of sleep. If being overweight degrades your posture then yes, it is indirectly related to sleep apnea. If you are overweight and have sleep apnea, please contact me. I would be interested in hearing your story and seeing if my method of overcoming sleep apnea can also help you.
