Sleep Apnea is a condition that afflicts many people.18 million people in the United States have Apnea with another estimated 10 million people who have not been diagnosed.  People with Apnea can stop breathing up to 30 times a night!
The standard approach is to use cumbersome CPAP machines that regulate breathing during the night and while it does bring relief, many people find it hard to sleep with the mask on their face.What if there was a natural way to address the issue without a machine?

Sound Healer Steve Sklar will share how learning to play the Didgeridoo (Yes, the well known native Australian instrument)actually strengthens the muscles at the back of the throat so they don't collapse during sleep causing snoring and sleep apnea! He will be sharing how it works and success stories with our listeners. He founded the group Worldwide Sleep Apnea-Didgeridoo Network whose mission is work with apnea sufferers and clinicians to educate on this approach.  Website:sleepapneadidgeridoo.com
