I need information regarding how to deal with apnea.
Have you tried homeopathy?
I had painful varicose veins for several years. I had to wear compression socks, but they continued to get worse. Then I started working with a homeopath for another problem. After six months, I noticed that I was no longer wearing my compression socks and no longer had any pain in my legs. The swelling of the veins receded. Several other problems, like pain in my thumb joints, forgetfulness and insomnia also gradually got better. A good homeopath prescribes just one remedy at a time based on your overall personality and symptoms. Worth a try.
You thoughts are awesome except for doing toe touches. From the info I have learned flexing the lumbar spine promotes delamination of the structure of the disk leading to lumbar disk disease. Which in most people’s case has already started. This is especially true after we have been sitting or laying for a prolonged time. As a reference I suggest the work of Stuart Mcgill.
