Divine healing success

Illness is not just physical body malfunction or mental derangement. Such conditions are well cared for by medical doctors. Overlooked are those illnesses initiated by evil spirits - demons. This later category of illness can only be revers...ed by divine healing. Pastor Dean L. Wong, Click Here!

Killer in the night:Sleep Apnea

Sleep apnea is a common, chronic (ongoing) sleep disorder characterised by pauses in breathing during sleep. It affects about one in four men and about one in 10 women. Left untreated, it can lead to excessive sleepiness, difficulties with daytime alertness and an increased risk for driving accidents.
Now major new research published in PLoS Medicine in August 2009 says that the classic manifestations of sleep apnea - loud snoring, interrupted breathing and sleep disruption - nearly double the risk for chronic disease and premature death among middle-aged and elderly. Even patients with moderate sleep apnoea face an increased death risk, as much as 17 percent, compared with those who do not have sleep-disordered breathing problems, the 10-year US study found.
The study lead author Dr. Naresh Punjabi, an associate professor of medicine at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine in Baltimore, said: "The primary finding of our study is that sleep apnea can increase the risk of death by about 40 percent, even after other factors have been accounted for."
He said the study also shows that it is the decrease in oxygen levels during sleep from sleep apnea that explains the increased risk of death. Men with sleep apnea between the ages of 40 and 70 are particularly at risk of death from any source, but especially from cardiovascular disease, the researchers found.
Doctors suggest that losing weight may reduce sleep apnoea, while some sufferers get relief using a device that keeps them from rolling on their backs while they sleep. For serious cases, a current treatment is the "continuous positive airway pressure" (CPAP) device, which functions as a kind of oxygen mask worn over the nose to help force air into nasal passageways and prevent airways from collapsing.
People with clinical symptoms of sleep apnea, which include loud snoring, sleepiness during the day and fatigue, should discuss the issue with their doctors.
