During the cessations of breathing the body will increase its efforts to take in air.
Abdominal contractions are exaggerated and increase until breathing resumes.
The contractions squeeze the stomach and force acid up the esophagus.
The efforts to breathe also increase a negative pressure in the esophagus which also pull up acid.

Twenty-one attendees- novices and experienced dentists alike, were treated to 8 hours of practical, valuable “hands-on” education, demonstrating the selection, placement and titration of various Oral Appliances. On Saturday, 20 April 2013, at the SGS offices in Hollywood, Florida, there were dentists from Virginia, Maryland, NYC, Missouri, and throughout Florida.
Dr. Michael Gelb who is respected as one of the most knowledgeable dentists in sleep disorders and TMD was joined by David Walton, founding partner of Respire Medical, and Ben Scarborough of Sleep Group Solutions.
Dr. Gelb said , “For men, sleep apnea is a lifestyle problem.” He explained how it effects so much of normal function. Referring to oral appliance toleration, he compares oral appliances to Invisalign trays. Dr. Gelb prefers the hard/hard appliances because they are easier to trim and adjust, easier to clean, and are thinner on the lingual surfaces, which provides more room for the tongue.
Meeting attendees had the opportunity to make their own appliances. David Walton said he is considering holding this program again in a few months. Look for it!

“Obstructive sleep apnea occurs in 50% of females aged 20-70 years. 20% of females have moderate, and 6% severe sleep apnea. Sleep apnoea in females is related to age, obesity and hypertension but not to daytime sleepiness. When searching for sleep apnea in females, females with hypertension or obesity should be investigated.”
- A apnea-hypopnea index of 30 or more (severe symptoms) affected 14% of the participants aged 55 or more
- 31% of the women who were obese and at least 50 years of age had severe sleep apnea
Your rich uncle wouldn’t want it any other way.
Michelangelo Buonarroti (1475 –1564) considered himself a sculptor, not a painter. Two of his best-known works, the Pieta and David, were sculpted before he turned thirty. Despite his low opinion of painting, he was persuaded by Pope Julius II, against his will, to paint the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel, which took approximately four years to complete (1508–1512). The maestro Michelangelo created two of the most influential works in fresco in the history of Western art: the scenes from Genesis on the ceiling, and The Last Judgement on the altar wall of the Sistine Chapel in Rome.
But don’t you agree you have to do some things different?
Are you in control (“at cause”) of your conditions, or believe that you have little or no control (“at effect”). Do you believe that “the economy” has control over your success? Do the “Insurance Companies” determine your patients’ treatment acceptance?
Do you know people who continually place themselves at effect and feel they are a victim of circumstances? The idea that other people are responsible for how they feel and act : “That patient made me angry.”, or “My lab is costing me money.”, or “People don’t want to spend money on dentistry today.” Those who live their lives at effect often see themselves as victims with no choices whatsoever. The irony is that they do have choice and they have chosen not to choose but to be responsive to whatever is given to them.
People who think they are at effect use words like “can’t” and “I tried.” When you say “I can’t,” the computer in your brain steps right up and supplies you with lots of reasons why you can’t, and it also blocks the creative part of your mind from figuring our how you can. Thus, the fact that you can’t comes true, further reinforcing your belief that you really can’t. Instead of saying “I can’t”, begin to ask “How can I?” and keep asking until your brain supplies you with the answer you want. I once heard a “motivational speaker” say, “After you think you tried every possible method, and still haven’t succeeded, try another method.” You could have asked Thomas Edison about that.
“If I find 10,000 ways something won’t work, I haven’t failed. I am not discouraged, because every wrong attempt discarded is another step forward.”
“I tried” is another favorite of people who feel they are at effect. The entire presupposition behind “I tried” is failure. No one who succeeds ever says “I tried.” They say “I will do it.” Trying begins with the belief in failure. To try, you must make pictures in your head of failing. My suggestion is to make pictures in your head of accomplishing whatever it is you want to accomplish. When you do this, you give your brain a signal to figure out how to do it. When you “try,” you give your brain a signal to figure out a way to fail.
Why would someone focus on what they don’t want, and see themselves as being at effect of causes over which they have no control? Fear. Scientology and NLP (Neuro-linguistic Programming are controversially at odds with each other on this issue but it remains that you can take control of your responses to whatever situation you find yourself in. And you can consciously control the choices you have in any situation. Choose to be successful.
