If your children are anything like mine, adequate sleep is essential to keeping them well-rested and happy.
Central sleep apnea in children happens because the area of the brain that controls the breathing process doesn’t work properly, so breathing stops or doesn’t continue at a proper rate.
If you suspect your child has sleep apnea, take them to see the doctor for a proper diagnoses. Lack of sleep can also contribute to serious medical problems such as stunting a child’s growth.
Because enlarged tonsils is usually a main cause of sleep apnea in children, one of the common treatments is a surgery that removes the adenoids and tonsils. For cases where surgery is not recommended or doesn’t take care of the problem, positive airway pressure therapy (PAP) can work. Health coach Jen Wittman dives into the practical techniques you can do at home to feel better.
I looooove a brand new beginning, like the first day of a new month — or even better, a new year. I’ve declared this the year of your health revolution (no more resolutions), but what does that look like? To deepen a breathing practice, I like to use this technique (this is good to do if someone has really stressed you out, you have a few minutes alone in your office or at night before bed). Earlier this year, during a particularly stressful time, I noticed inflammation creeping into my life in ways I had never experienced before. Being someone who immediately jumps to the worst case scenario first, I decided this was clearly the early signs of mouth cancer and imagined a million terrible scenarios playing out because of that. And to give you a little “practical woo woo” as I like to call it, thyroid disease is considered in ancient medicine to be an energetic disorder of the 5th Chakra (or throat chakra as its known). If nothing comes to mind, check out Rory’s Write To Be You blog archives which are full of simple writing prompts. My husband and I saved up for 7 years so I could pursue my dream of cooking in Italy over a decade ago. It helps relieve brain fog, and improves gastrointestinal function, stomach acid production, adrenal hormone metabolism, changes in brain chemistry and liver detoxification. You can do this in the privacy of your own home, or find a professional colon hydrotherapist who can help you if you’re not interested in DIY.
When you’re dealing with thyroid disease, you have to find the right exercise balance for your body to optimize health and minimize adrenal stress.
Don’t let exercise, which should be a force for healing, be another thing that creates stress in the body.
Medical studies have revealed that even a 10 or 20 minute massage can have therapeutic benefits including improving immune function, boosting circulation, reducing stress, reducing the time it takes to recover from injury, and alleviating pain.
I am a bit of a massage connoisseur, logging in hundreds of hours of massage over the years, and I can tell you that the best, most relaxing, nerve calming, amazing massage I ever received was an acupressure massage on my feet. With all the fatigue and fog that can come with thyroid and autoimmune disorders, dry brushing is a welcome treatment. The stimulation from my skin being brushed wakes me up in such a refreshing way that I now look forward to the brush instead of a Cup of Joe. All you need to get started is a good dry brush and 5 minutes or less — I like to do it right before I get into the shower in the morning.

Filed Under: Hypothyroidism Treatment Tagged With: Coconut Oil, Dry Brush, Gluten, massage, Meditation About Dana TrentiniWho knew that little butterfly-shaped thyroid gland at the base of my neck could affect my life so completely? I have looked for an article on this site that shows all the components that make up a complete thyroid test.
The test that my doctor did was to check the complete thyroid panel, T3, T4, TSH, free T3, free T4.
I’ve been tested last three years and my thyroid level he said should be between 3-12 with 12 being worse. This def happened to me and once my TSH was back where it should be my hair started growing back.

Body repair continues during this phase, which lasts about 30 minutes and is dominated by delta waves. Dreams have been considered everything from an escape from the day’s problems to our brain’s attempt to make sense of those problems. Yawning when seeing someone else yawn may be a demonstration of empathy that is rooted in human evolution.
We know to be aware that heavy snoring or fatigue after a full night’s sleep could be sleep apnea in an adult. Sleep apnea can interfere with sleep quality and can cause several other serious problems as well. Obstructive sleep apnea in children is one of the more common types, and it is caused by an obstruction in the child’s airway, such as enlarged adenoids or tonsils.
This type of sleep apnea usually has a neurological cause is far less common than obstructive sleep apnea. This is usually seen in very young infants where the part of the brain that controls breathing is not fully developed. Sleep apnea can lead to an increased production of urine, which in turn can cause bed wetting. Because growth hormones are generated during the night, sleep apnea can disrupt it, and a child may stop growing and developing properly.
It starts with an evaluation by your pediatrician or a pediatric sleep specialist if you suspect that your child may have sleep apnea. Although younger children do not have to be overweight in order to experience apnea, being overweight may be one of the causes. Because surgery is serious and comes with risks and possible complications, you should discuss the pros and cons with your doctor. A PAP machine, like those used by adults, utilizes a Darth Vader-like mask that forces a person to keep breathing during the night.
It’s better to be safe than sorry and get your child evaluated if you suspect a sleep disorder. Some of them weren’t that easy for her to wrap her head around at first and took a bit of courage and some gumption to finally try. I’ve created a top-to-bottom list of 10 steps you can take to love your body back to health — from head to toe.
What I found the most valuable from the retreat were the meditation sessions we had throughout the weekend. Meditating is a wonderful way to reduce stress, fight depression, and quiet the monkey mind, which can clear some of that brain fog. As we know, stress takes a heavy toll on many systems, but especially the gut-thyroid-adrenal access. So, I immediately called the dentist, freaking out as I described what was going on with my gums. And, spiritually speaking, that Chakra gets out of balance when we keep quiet and don’t use our voice — literally and figuratively. Even five minutes a day, writing out the crazies helps keep my anxiety and depression in check. One of the most impactful recommendations by my darling osteopath was to use journaling to get out of my head.
I go through them whenever something stressful is living in my body which needs to get out. Exercise can help with a host of symptoms you may be experiencing plus alleviate depression by regulating brain chemicals norepinephrine and serotonin. This isn’t about punishing your body or forcing it into a new shape; it’s about loving your body and respecting that it was designed to move. The idea is to work hard for a short period of time, as little as 5 minutes, a few times a week. It’s true that it’s something you have to invest in, but as with so many of these healing steps, it’s an investment in your long-term health and well-being. It’s a key part of my self-care routine, whether I’m at a fancy spa or rubbing my own toes at home.
Adding dry brushing to your morning routine is an amazing way to help your body wake up in the morning (no caffeine needed!), plus it’s an excellent practice for boosting your body’s detoxifying capabilities. Once you take the quiz, you’ll receive a report with your results and some suggestions for the baby steps that will help you start feeling better fast.

Jen found so much healing and happiness while living in Italy that she now also runs super fun and totally delicious health and healing retreats in Italy. I am having problems and many things point to my thyroid but the basic tests have been normal for me. Healthy adults typically go through four to six cycles of these stages before waking in the morning, each lasting around 90 to 110 minutes. I have a habit of falling asleep during the middle third of movies when watching television.


Body temperature and pulse rates start to drop, blood flow to the brain decreases, and eye movements stop.
Very slow delta brain waves begin to appear, and people awakened during this phase tend to be disoriented.
Stage 4 is the most refreshing part of the sleep cycle and the hardest to be awakened from. It requires being able to block the processing of visual input (this is what happens during hypnosis). Sigmund Freud thought they were expressions of repressed urges and impulses from our unconscious mind, often symbolic because their content would otherwise be too disturbing. Recent research by scientists such as Robert Stickgold, an associate professor at Harvard University Medical School, supports the theory that new connections between our experiences may be formulated as we dream. We can now “decode” dreams to determine what types of images they contain, even as the dreamer remains asleep. Rats experience a decreased life span—from an average of two to three years down to about five weeks—when deprived of REM sleep. He has extensive writing experience in healthcare, and his personal essays have appeared in the New York Times and other publications. Because of this, you should be aware of your child’s sleep habits, and if you notice anything going on, check with your doctor.
Most cases of central sleep apnea happen in premature infants because the respiratory center of the brain has not developed fully yet. Older children can feel embarrassed and alarmed by bed wetting, not to mention the annoyance of changing bedding and clothing in the night. Children who don’t get enough sleep can be moody and cranky, their performance in school can decrease, and their lack of energy can cause them to be less active.
Studies are also showing that lack of proper sleep at night can be a contributing factor in attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), otherwise known as ADD. After that, they can recommend a treatment that is based on the type of apnea, the underlying causes, and the age of the child. In simple cases, surgery takes care of the sleep apnea in between 70 to 90 percent of the cases.
These machines only work, of course, if the person commits to using it properly and on a regular basis. Both you and your child will be able to sleep better once you know what is going on and seek a treatment. I recently wrote an article sharing the Creator's stories, your stories, involving ghostly baby monitor situations. Would you be willing to do all the things on this list if it could mean a drastic difference in your health?
At the time, I couldn’t imagine myself sitting still for a moment… especially when I was in the throes of a thyroid induced panic attack. Using a guided meditation app, like the one I mention in this post, is a great way to get started! With everything falling out of balance there for a minute, I ended up with the strangest bump in my mouth. Of course, I DIDN’T have mouth cancer (I’m just a looney tune sometimes) but what I did have was caused by a high level of inflammation in my body caused by stress. I’m telling you to crank up the radio, join the church choir, or belt it out in the shower — for your health. When we stuff our emotions, bite our tongues, hide our voice, often that energy gets blocked in the throat (our seat of communication) and manifests itself as a thyroid imbalance. So grab your pen and figure out how to work five minutes of self-care into your schedule for a self-care check-in on paper — you’re going to thank me for this. It’s about getting some fresh air, getting some sunshine, reconnecting with nature, and getting grounded. But adding coffee enemas to my healing routine has made a huge difference in my health and sped up my healing. Every time I’d go into that cupboard it would beckon me… “Why don’t you just give me a try?” it would say. But now I had the doctor telling me that this might be the key to helping me putting the final nail in the coffin on my gut troubles. OMG — I can’t believe what a wuss I’d been and how that had kept me from a great tool in our healing arsenal. This kind of exercise has been shown to be just as effective (if not MORE) than traditional workouts of 30 or 60 minutes at a time.
This cool YouTube video shows you how to do a self foot massage, but scheduling a full-body massage is also a wonderful way to love your body back to health.
Now that I know it’s best to skip the coffee, I dry brush first thing in the morning. Plus, I’ve also included incredibly helpful done-for-you print outs to bring to your doctor at your next visit. Still having hypo symptom; Thyroid eyes, cold hands, cold intolerant, nausea, little virtigo, tremor when sleeping causing sudden wake up every 2 hours. On the other hand you must also let her into your world as well by showing her your vulnerability of being a man who lives and breathes and makes mistake and not a superman she dreams. Before realizing that I nodded off for a spell, I attempt to fill in the blanks, rationalizing the action onscreen as if I hadn’t missed a minute. Increased blood flow to the muscles and secretion of hormones in Stage 3 help spur cell growth. Most high-level functions of the brain are shut down so more blood can be diverted to the body. Freud also believed that our superego (or conscience) protects us from these disturbing images by making them hard to remember.
These formulations may then be stored somewhere in our brain and boost our cognitive functioning, even if we don’t remember the dreams.
Since most dreams aren’t remembered, this may greatly expand our dream database and help us recognize common patterns in our nocturnal fantasy lives.
The toll is even greater when they’re not allowed to sleep at all, perhaps because sleep deprivation compromises the immune system.
Ed is the co-author (with his wife, Linda Carbone) of A Little Pregnant: Our Memoir of Fertility, Infertility, and a Marriage. Sleep apnea in children is very similar to the adult condition, but it has different causes, symptoms, and treatments. If your child snores, you may want to speak to your health care provider, because this is the most common sign of apnea. The decreased activity along with lack of sleep can contribute to weight gain and eventual obesity.
I have to admit, I got goosebumps reading them, and I know I wasn't the only one.You delivered again in the comments section, Moviepilot! But, meditation has become a saving grace and a way to not only calm my nervous system down but helps me reset and focus as well. If you’re not ready for a full meditation practice, even some deep breathing is a great way to start.
More and more studies are proving that oral care is vital to overall health, and one of the simplest methods I like to support my oral care (beyond regular brushing and flossing!) is with oil pulling. You’ll know you’ve found the right balance when you get a boost of energy and an overall sense of well-being. While the mind is most active during REM sleep, which lasts about 30 minutes, the body is not. Other symptoms include poor sleep and restlessness during sleep, difficulty breathing while sleeping, night sweats, and behavior problems during the day as a result of poor sleep at night.
With countless stories about demonic hauntings and spirit-sighting, I realized I needed to do another article showcasing even more of your chilling tales. Oil pulling is an ancient Ayurvedic remedy used to cleanse the body and enhance oral health. Acknowledge your anxiety and write out how you are feeling, what you are afraid of, what you believe is triggering the stress. You can fit that in at lunch, before or after dinner with the family (in Italy its done most evenings) or at a mid-morning or afternoon break.
It means that if you have intestinal permeability (leaky gut) or a sensitivity to gluten, your body will mistakenly attack your thyroid believing it is attacking the gluten molecules. My doctor suggested using avocado oil on my scalp every night but I really don’t want to get into that. Beyond helping the body’s detoxification processes, oil pulling helps remove bacteria, parasites and other toxins from your teeth and mucous membranes, and reduces inflammation in your gums.
When your vocal chords vibrate, it stimulates your thyroid to release thyroxine, a critical hormone that sets the cell metabolic rate.
And as we lie nearly motionless through the night, our guard down, sleep prepares us for tomorrow. Studies have shown that children born mute and people who take vows of silence (like nuns) have low thyroid function — because they never use their voice!
Or is that only me?You're Not My Daughter Emily Nathan LaMattery Garber I have a few stories involving "spirits," however the one that will haunt me forever happened around 2009. My cousin opened her home up to me and my daughter, I started seeing someone after about a two years of being separated, and he stayed the night a few times.
One of the nights he was over, our bedroom door was open for some reason, and we heard the toilet flush, the sink turn on, and saw a small white figure bolt down the hall. I thought nothing of it because we had guests from out of town, so I assume in my sleepy stage that it was one of them. I remembered that it was the size of a child, and asked everyone of they used the bathroom. My cousin decided about a week later that she was going to go on a trip with her friends out of state and that we could stay in her room.
My boyfriend stayed with me while my cousin was gone because I didn't want to stay in the house alone. A few days after my cousin left, my boyfriend and I were sitting in the bedroom talking when we heard voices coming from one of the other rooms, they started out like children's voices and got very deep and manly.
That night after we fell asleep hearing voices again, I thought I woke up and the bedroom was shaped differently. I saw my daughter as a baby crawling to me crying, I closed my eyes and said "this isn't real" then i opened then to see my daughter a little older, waking and crying and calling me. I closed my eyes again and when I opened them I saw her again, older crying telling to pick her up, this went on a few more times, each time she was older and closer to me, until she was right next to the bed and about ten years old, asking me why i wouldn't pick her up.


I turned to wake my boyfriend up who just turned his head to me and had the creepiest smile on his face. He got up and walked into the kitchen and asked me if I needed to see it, or if I just wanted to leave. I walked into the kitchen to find all the chairs were pushed in backward to the table, except the one my daughter always sat in.
At that moment all the gates (all the windows and sliding glass door had rod iron gating on them) began to shake, furiously. He told me his dream before I told him mine, and it was almost the same (with the exception of my daughter). I didn't return until my cousin came back, and I immediately packed up and moved into my grandparents' home.
Talk about demonic.No Longer Bed Bound Maylee Strange In 2013, I was a CNA working the night shift. When I enter his room he is weeping, pointing at the wall talking to himself in words I don't understand and calling for his wife who had previously passed. Scared shitless I call my boyfriend who is already asleep, but tells me he will stay on the phone as long as I need. I started working normal hours at a preschool and going to school to become an elementary teacher. I don't believe in ghosts or the paranormal but that night was a scary night that I wont forget.We Told YouLiliana AllenSo there was this one time I was staying at a friend's grandparent's house during the summer a few years ago and I had an interesting time.
We had decided to have a sleepover while we practiced the song we were going to sing at church camp that year. The day I got there, she and her grandmother warned me about a little ghost girl that would play with my friend's younger cousins whenever they were over. Anyway, my friend and I worked like crazy on our song, and we were doing pretty well on it by the time bed time rolled around for her grandparents. Around mid-night, my friend had fallen asleep and everything was turned off, I was the only person awake in the whole house.
My friend's grandpa is a moderately big, very tall man, so naturally I thought he was in the kitchen getting a snack or something and I ignored it. My friend's cousins were due over the next day, so they weren't there at the time - that was when I knew something was up. There wasn't anything to be seen, even though I could see pretty dang well in that dark house. Suddenly, the footsteps stopped in front of the living room door, right where I was looking. I didn't see anything at all, not even when two muttering voices started talking to each other.
I kinda got chills at that point, I mean, I didn't believe in ghosts and yet I was experiencing something a little too paranormal to dismiss as me being sleepy (I was wide awake FYI).
Then, the voices stopped and I thought my nightmare was over, that was until I felt a cold chill running from the right side of my face down my right arm and across my lap, like how a little girl would sit up on Santa's knee. I thought I was feeling things and tried to dismiss the thought that this could possibly be the little, ghost girl.
Somehow, I fell asleep after that and woke up completely rigid in the same position I had gone to sleep in.
All they could say was "we told you." I have never been so sure that the paranormal exists. I will never deny the existence of things the eye cannot see, and this story is part of the reason.
Believe you me, the idea of Casper paying me a visit doesn't phase me, but my experience with "wah wah" back then is not something I'd want again.
Someone call Sam and Dean, I have a job for them.Warning WhispersAthena CollierWhen my brother was a baby, we lived in a 100 year old house that used to belong to a priest.
The lights would flicker on and off and my mother would hear endless foot steps up the stairs.
When she would see if it was my dad coming home, nothing was there, but the footsteps kept coming. One night, when my brother was sleeping in his crib in his own room, my parents woke up in the middle of the night at the sound of one of his toys singing. When they ran to see what it was, his box of toys was tipped over and the noisy toy was all the way across the room. A couple weeks later, my brother started to spit up blood and my mom found it on his sheets in the morning. If she hadn't heard the whispers and figured it out, we would have been dead in three days, and so would all of the kids that went to our daycare.The Ghost of the Residence HallEmily LauterbachThis happened over spring break 2014.
I had woken up early, around nine or ten in the morning and decided to see if my friends were up yet.
I walk into the lobby of my residence hall and once I saw no one was out there, I decided to turn on the TV. I turned around, but saw nothing and just told myself it was most likely just the vent turning on.
This time I walked over to the vent in the front of the lobby, just to prove to myself that it was making the tapping sound. So, I started to think it was the vending machine instead, but when I walked over to the vending machine it too had not yet been turned on. Sure enough, not long after I sat down, the tapping noise returned only much louder than before. I turn around, and then think it's just my friends messing with me and trying to scare me like they did the night before when we were playing hide and go seek tag. So I casually call out, "Guys, knock it off, it's too early for this shit." The tapping continued.
So finally I stand up and walk over to the front of the lobby and look under every table and even the outside stairway to see if my friends were hiding anywhere. I was puzzled to see that there was no one there and returned to my spot on the couch in front of the TV. I then hear a whistle tune from behind me and it is the same whistle tune that my friend always whistled. I certain then that it was him playing a joke on me, so I say out loudly, "OK, now I definitely know it's you guys messing with me." I turn around to try and figure out where exactly the tapping and whistle tune was coming from.
To my surprise, the tapping sound was coming from the center of one of the large tables in the front of the lobby.
Starting to get really frustrated and confused I walk back to the couch, still keeping an eye on that front table. I quickly turn around and as I reach for my phone, I hear one of the nearby couches creak as if someone was sitting down.
I'm still looking at the couch while reaching for my phone and keys, and again I hear the same creaking noise even closer. I look at the couch right across from me and can see the cushion seat go down as if someone was sitting there. My nose then starts to get extremely warm and once I touch it, I then realize that I have a bloody nose.
I then feel a cold sweat start to arise and my body begins to tremble almost uncontrollably. I immediately start to panic because I knew that I never get nose bleeds, no matter how stressed or dry my nose gets. I rush to the bathroom to wipe my nose, but the second I walk into the bathroom, my nose bleed stops and there is no evidence of there ever being a nose bleed, and the blood that was on my hand was gone.
I look over at what was to become my new roommate's bed and I noticed that the bed was neatly and tightly made up, which wasn't how I had left it.
I frantically unmake the bed to how it was originally and immediately sit down as I could feel a panic attack arising.
I open the lobby doors and no more than two seconds of me opening them, the tapping noise starts up again. I immediately ran to the computer lab in the basement of my residence hall and stayed there the whole day.Mysterious BruisesElizabeth MattsonI have had multiple experiences, but one stands out to me that I'll never forget. I would sleep on a mattress on the floor next to our wall at night only to find the next morning, my posters on the wall had fallen off. I thought maybe I just didn't put the tacks on right so I shrugged if off, despite it happening everyday.
After coming home from school and sitting down all of a sudden my radio turns on by itself.
During all of this I chose to just brush it off because I didn't wanna feed into what was going on. The next year my older brother moved out so I moved into his room (which is next to the room my sister and I were in). Now mind you my brother already had warned me about the corner of the room where it was unnaturally dark at night. About half way into my 11th year in high school (maybe around October cuz it was close to our homecoming dance) I started having nights where I'd stay up all night.
When I did try to sleep I'd have dreams where I'm being strangled by a woman with her hand going through my chest, only to wake up still feeling this pain around my neck and my lungs feeling constricted.
Sure enough on the nights I had him my dog would wake me up to a low growl he'd only do when he felt someone was a threat.
I remember seeing my dogs' fangs out and in a stance ready to attack towards to the corner of the room where it was darkest. Days later I was asleep in my room (without my dog) stirring around to get comfy when suddenly this cold chill goes up my right hand that was out of the covers.
I opened my eyes briefly to see this young pale man with a white t-shirt standing next to my bed and holding onto my hand.
Maybe two or three days after that night several bruisings appeared on the same hand that boy held me in the shape of fingertips. Needless to say, my family still hear footsteps, cabinets opening and closing, someone tapping on doors, people whispering, or hear my children's toys going off at night.
I'm just glad to not stay in that room anymore.I have felt a breeze hear an there, heard strange screams in the middle of the night, as well as woken up to a loud tapping noise coming from my computer table. I'm praying I don't wake up at 3 AM, feeling as if someone is staring at me in the darkness of my room as a deep cold chill hits my face.
