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.
