Thanks for your help.

Dear B.,

Sleep apnea is caused by:

1) soft tissue obstruction of the airway, or
2) some failure of respiratory control by the central nervous system

In the first case, there are several approaches, such as CPAP (constant positive airway pressure) which prevents the tongue from falling back into the throat; preventing the person from lying on their back during sleep; and even surgery.

In the second case, ozone therapy (delivered by ear insufflation) has helped some people by normalizing respiratory control. The exact mechanism is not understood yet, but ozone therapy almost invariably results in improved sleep. Probably it has to do with melatonin production and resulting serotonin levels. Even in diseases which are not traditionally treated with ozone, we have seen improvement in sleep, if nothing else.
