Must-Have Plants for Better Sleep


Sleep apnea, insomnia, night terrors, and sleep disorders are experienced by many people. Sleep apnea is a sleep condition that happens when you sleep when your breathing is disturbed. Those with untreated sleep apnea can while sleeping, stop breathing repeatedly. That means you can not get enough oxygen from the body and the brain. There are 2 sleep apnea types:

OSA (Obstructive Sleep Apnea)

This is caused by blockage of the airway when the back of the throat’s soft tissue collapses during sleep.

Central Sleep Apnea

The airway isn’t blocked but the brain doesn’t signal the muscles to breathe because of instability in the respiratory control center.
