Hello Sudha,

Obstructive sleep apnea is a common disorder which is characterized by repetitive episodes of nocturnal breathing cessation due to upper airway collapse.  
Sleep apnea can cause a number of health problems besides leaving you more tired in the morning. If left untreated, this sleeping condition can trigger mental issues, lead to poor immune function, contribute to memory loss, increase risk of heart failure.
Traditional treatment for sleep apnea includes wearing a CPAP mask at night. Though effective, some people may find it uncomfortable. Some home remedies may offer the same benefits. 
Here are some tips to reduce sleep apnea symptoms -

Maintain an appropriate weight
It is better to reduce weight if you are obese. Obesity, specifically in the upper body, can increase the risk of airway obstruction and narrow nasal passages.
Maintaining a healthy weight can keep your airways clear and reduce sleep apnea symptoms. 
In some cases, reducing weight can eliminate sleep apnea. However, if you regain the weight, it's possible for the condition to return.


Regular exercise or yoga can increase your energy level, strengthen your heart and reduce sleep apnea symptoms. Yoga can specifically improve your respiratory strength and encourage oxygen flow.
Sleep apnea is associated with decreased oxygen saturation in your blood. Yoga can improve your oxygen levels and hence can reduce the symptoms of sleep apnea. 

Alter sleep position 

Though a small change, altering your sleep position can reduce sleep apnea symptoms and improve your night's rest. 
Sleeping on your back - called the supine position - can worsen symptoms. For some adults, sleeping on the side can help breathing return to normal.

Use humidifier 

Humidifiers are devices that add moisture to the air. Dry air can irritate the body and the respiratory system. Using a humidifier can open your airways, decrease congestion and encourage clearer breathing.

Avoid alcohol and smoking

Lifestyle changes can improve your health and encourage better sleeping habits. Considering quitting alcohol and smoking to reduce sleep apnea complications. 


Have only plant based natural foods. 
Say no to dairy products and animal foods.
Drink plenty of water throughout the day. 
Drink freshly prepared homemade fruit juices. 
Have fresh, seasonal and locally available fruits and vegetables. 

Thank you
