Sleep apnea is a common, potentially life-threatening condition associated with increased incidence of hypertension and heart disease. Unfortunately, Western medical treatments for this condition are uncomfortable and problematic. Happily, Chinese medicine is capable of treating this condition relatively cheaply and easily. In this class, we will discuss the Chinese medical pattern discrimination of sleep apnea and its acupuncture and Chinese herbal treatment. This is one area where Chinese medicine can truly treat preventively.
