Benefits of Didgeridoo for Sleep

Posted: Thursday, August 2, 2012 in Info & Education

What is Sleep Apnea

Sleep apnea is a chronic disorder in which one repeatedly stops breathing during the night. These events last 10 seconds or longer, and may occur hundreds of times per night. Someone with sleep apnea may experience loud snoring, brief pauses in breathing, and intermittent gasping. During apnea events, the oxygen level of the blood drops, the heart rate increases, and sleep becomes disrupted as the affected person wakes up to resume breathing. This can have significant consequences on one’s health.

Sub-Types of Sleep Apnea

Sleep apnea is a generic term that includes any disorder that causes pauses in breathing during sleep. It may affect someone at any age, but the prevalence of sleep apnea peaks at middle age. There are a few major sub-types, including:

Sleep apnea is not the only problem that can lead to difficulties breathing during sleep. There are a few other problems that do not cause a complete pause in the breathing but may still be problematic, such as:

Symptoms of Sleep Apnea

Aside from the pauses in breathing which are typical of the disorder, there are many other common symptoms in sleep apnea. These symptoms may include:

  • Loud, chronic snoring
  • Choking or gasping during sleep
  • Excessive daytime sleepiness
  • Morning headache
  • Memory or learning problems
  • Feeling irritable

 

Can Didgeridoo help in the treatment of Sleep Apnea?

Yes!!!!!

Sleep apnea is a common disorder that causes pausing during breathing while the afflicted person is asleep. This is often due to the upper airway collapsing, and it can lead to major medical problems. It is most often treated by Continuous Positive Airway Pressure, or CPAP, but this is not always tolerated. In fact, compliance is a major hurdle in treatment that sometimes cannot be overcome. One proposed alternative to CPAP is learning to play an aboriginal instrument called the didgeridoo

Regular playing of a didgeridoo reduces daytime sleepiness and snoring in people with moderate obstructive sleep apnea syndrome and also improves the sleep quality of partners. We at Didgeridoo Breath have personal experience with numbers of customers and partners personally reporting to us, the positive impact didgeridoo playing has had in their lives, sleep and relationships!

Snoring and obstructive sleep apnoea syndrome are common sleep disorders caused by the collapse of the upper airways. Regular didgeridoo playing reduces snoring and daytime sleepiness, finds a study published by the British Medical Journal.

 ‘In one person, the apnoea-hypopnoea index decreased from 17 to 2’… ‘In conclusion, didgeridoo playing improved daytime sleepiness in patients with moderate snoring and obstructive sleep apnoea and reduced sleep disturbance in their partners. Larger trials are needed to confirm our preliminary findings, but our results may give hope to the many people with moderate obstructive sleep apnoea syndrome and snoring, as well as to their partners.’ British Medical Journal
