Sleep Apnea is incredibly common but rarely diagnosed. Notice the vicious cycle sleep apnea and its side effects have on sufferers.
One cause of sleep apnea is excess weight. With excess weight, the tissues of the neck and throat begin to fill up with fat, which often collapses the windpipe during sleeping and cuts off the airflow to the lungs. This in turn leads other serious health complications. (From The Seven Numbers by Dr. Scott Conard)
Solutions for sleep apnea include losing excess weight, avoiding smoking and alcohol, sleeping on your side, and using a special mouth guard. Take a look at this information from an Indianapolis family dentist for more tips.
Just 30 minutes of walking per day can come with a plethora of benefits. Before we had the modern conveniences of cars, buses, or other forms of transportation, people walked everywhere, giving them an ample amount of physical activity. Unfortunately, the average American now only takes about 1,600 to 3,000 steps a day! The first goal we usually set for our patients is to move from 3,000 steps a day to 6,000. This is the break-even point. Taking 6,000 steps a day is just about 3 miles. At this point you are burning about the same number of calories you are taking in if you are eating an average diet. The next goal is to increase from 6,000 steps a day to 10,000. At 10,000 steps you are walking about 5 miles and are actually burning more calories than you are taking in. If you are intent on losing weight, this is the level you want to be at.
See the chart below for more benefits of taking a daily walk.
