This is a special interview with a returning guest, Dr. A. Joseph Borelli. As you may recall, he was on our show with us in the past talking about brain dysfunction and sleep apnea. In this episode, we’re going to about the Walking Dead: How Sleep-Deprived Zombies Are For Real. 

In this 60 minute interview, we will cover the following:

  • How sleep apnea damages autonomic nervous system centers in the brain
  • Can brain damage from OSA be reversed?
  • The connection between OSA and atrial fibrillation 
  • Can heart damage from sleep apnea be reversed?  
  • The difference between obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and upper airway resistance syndrome (UARS)
  • Why UARS is harder to diagnose
  • Newly discovered lymphatic system in the brain and implications
  • How CPAP may cause intracranial hypertension
  • And much, much more.

In this podcast, I have a fascinating discussion with Dr. Ronald M. Harper, Professor of Neurobiology at the University of California, Los Angeles. Dr. Harper shares some profound insights about why brain damage goes hand in hand with obstructive sleep apnea. In this interview, you’ll learn:

  • Why Obstructive Sleep Apnea (or OSA) can cause brain damage but how this brain damage can further perpetuate sleep apnea
  • Eye-opening insights about why OSA is so often associated with memory loss, brain fog, balance issues, hypertension, and even diabetes 
  • Besides traditional OSA treatment options, which simple exercise method can help reduce OSA severity.
