Do you often have or suffer from high blood pressure, acid reflux, excessive daytime sleepiness, snoring, headaches, mood swings or feel depressed? If your answer is yes to a few of these, you may want to make an appointment with your doctor to see if you have a common sleep disorder called sleep apnea. If you already know you have it or know a loved one who may, you are going to want to consider treatment. CPAP therapy can significantly improve your health. These are the top ways CPAP therapy can improve your health and life.

  1. Keep Your Mind as Sharp as a Tac

If your body isn’t getting the amount of rest it needs to fully recover day to day, your mind is not going to be at the top of its game. You may find this impacting your relationship and maybe even your work performance. Untreated sleep apnea can quicken the onset of dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. The good news is that studies are now finding that CPAP therapy can actually restore damaged brain tissue.

  1. You’ll Get Your Beauty Sleep

While this isn’t necessarily the most important side effect of therapy, a healthy outside is oftentimes indicative of a healthy inside. One study found that those who were compliant with treatment appeared more youthful, alert and attractive.

  1. Heart Disease

When you have Obstructive Sleep Apnea, you stop breathing many times in the night. This causes a constant fluctuation of your blood pressure and negatively impacts blood oxygen levels. This is why untreated OSA has been linked to heart disease. In fact, 83 percent of people with heart disease also have sleep apnea. Sticking with therapy will help your heart and blood to pump as they should, thereby preventing many heart problems.

  1. Lower Your Risk of Stroke

Did you know that you are two to four times more likely to have a stroke if you have untreated OSA? Additionally, if you are recovering from a stroke, treatment may help to improve your cognitive function. Compliance to therapy will improve your health by lowering your risk of stroke.

  1. Improved Emotional Health

You’ve probably been told to “go back to bed,” when you’re in a bad mood. Well, it isn’t far from the truth, as improper sleep can cause negative emotions such as stress, depression, irritability and anxiety. Therapy will help you to get the quality sleep your body has been craving, with a side effect of improved overall emotional stability.
