Sleep Apnea Causing Fatigue, Weakness, Stress, etc.

Posted by C (Canada) on 08/12/2013

Dear Ted, How are you, I hope you are well. Briefly about myself; I am 39 years old male from Middle Eastern roots. I weight 150 lbs and 170 cm tall. I been having stress, chronic fatigue and weakness for the past 4 years, it started in Dubai. I don't know the reason; it started all of the sudden. I tried every possible Anti depressant or vitamins but no luck. While I am in that stage other thing starts popping up, stomach issue, post nasal drips, joint and off course muscle pain. I did all kind of blood work everything shows normal except high cholesterol which does not cause any fatigue. I also did sleep apnea test in Canada and the results shows that I have sleep apnea with score of 28.

Now lately just one year ago when I sleep and wake up one nostril always clogged. I don't know why it is clogged because I don't have flu, cold or runny nose. I saw ENT it turns out to be I have Septum deviation, he also told me that it could have been like that for years. I did the operation couple of month ago hoping that will solve the sleep apnea and in return will solve the fatigue but also no luck, as matter fact things got worst.

After looking at EARTHCLINIC website I came out to conclusion to start taking the following;

  1. Iodine Supplement
  2. Coconut Oil
  3. Black Strap Molasses
  4. Granulated Lecithin

Note; I tried Baking Soda and ACV, but it looks like I get headache from baking soda, ACV not

Currently I am taking the following medications

  • Diovan 160 mg once / day – for blood pressure (It worked well at the beginning but now it is not regulating)
  • Pantoprazole 40 mg every other day - for stomach acidity

Thank you for reading my concern, I really appreciate your advice and opinion.

Chronic fatigue is usually three-fold, the fatty liver, reducing the nutrients to vital organs and zinc and lysine deficiency. The problem about the nose stems from circulation in the arteries and veins in that area that greatly reduces causing acidity in the head area leading to sleep apnea. Sleep apnea can somewhat be relieved by taking DHEA 25 mg per day to reduce the fats; taking it twice a day, one at lunch and one before sleep. Some chronic fatigue can also be relieved by taking 4 teaspoon of mannitol (to ungum the circulatory system as it is a polyol sugar) with PABA one teaspoon neutralized the acidity with 1/2 to 1 teaspoon of baking soda. Increasing circulation by improving head circulation will be help if fats especially vegetable oil and fructose is reduced. Cerebral arteriosclerosis is an issue, so fixing this may be done with copper chlorophyllin, tetrasodium EDTA solution 20 drops twice a day, vitamin K 100 mcg, and chrondroitin sulfate 1000 mg twice a day.
