    Natural Sleep Apnea Therapy: Playing The Didgeridoo

    ajdidge posted:
    The practice of the didgeridoo is clinically proven to treat sleep apnea and snoring. In 2006 the British Medical Journal reported a study that compared two groups of patients with moderate sleep apnea: one group that practiced 6 days a week for 25 minutes and another group which did not play didgeridoo. They found that the group that practiced didgeridoo had a significant decrease in their snoring and great improvement in their sleep apnea.

    In this video with Dr. Jordan Stern of BlueSleep, an endoscopy is performed on a didgeridoo player, showing the inside of his throat while playing the instrument. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gbRlA2KeUzE
