Didgeridoo for Sleep Apnea – Learn to play the didgeridoo…and cure your sleep apnea!
If you’re reading this letter, you’re probably sick of struggling with your CPAP, and fed up with suffering from sleep apnea.
You know that there are alternative treatments to sleep apnea out there, treatments that are easier, quicker, and cheaper than CPAP and surgery. But your doctor (and the healthcare industry in general) can’t – or won’t – share information with you on those treatments.
Well, I’m here today to tell that such treatments do exist, and there’s one in particular that is easy and inexpensive to do, that can be done in the comfort of your own home, and is actually FUN. (Yes, fun!)
This treatment has been tested in scientific trials and has been written about in the prestigious British Medical Journal. It has also been recommended by the Mayo Clinic and the U.S. National Institutes of Health. (I’ll tell you more about that in a second.)
Allow me to explain what this ancient Australian wind instrument is, and how it’s been scientifically proven to cure sleep apnea by strengthening a person’s upper airway.
The sound that comes out of a didge when it’s played is made by vibrating, or flapping, the lips continuously while blowing into the didgeridoo.
Before explaining how playing the didgeridoo can cure your sleep apnea, it’s important to know HOW sleep apnea occurs. Allow me to explain:
The vast majority of people with sleep apnea suffer from what’s called “obstructive sleep apnea”, or OSA.
When obstructive sleep apnea occurs, the tissues in your upper throat relax and collapse together while you’re sleeping. This blocks the air’s passage temporarily.
There’s also a connection with snoring here. Flabby tissues in the mouth and throat not only collapse when you fall asleep. They also VIBRATE – which is what causes snoring.
So the key to conquering obstructive sleep apnea (and snoring) is to have STRONG muscles to keep your throat open while you sleep.
How can you build up strong muscles in your upper airway? You guessed it – by playing the didgeridoo!
Simply put, playing the didgeridoo strengthens and tones the tissues of the throat, and can also provide good exercise for the respiratory system, as well as a meditation aid.
But just blowing through a pipe won’t cure your sleep apnea. Key is a special breathing technique called “circular breathing”. This involves breathing in through the nose while expelling air out of the mouth using the tongue and cheeks.

I know what you’re probably thinking at this point: “playing the didgeridoo seems so simple. How do I know it actually works in curing sleep apnea?”
It’s a little-known fact that in 2006 a scientific study was carried out at the University… Read more…
