Sleep is UNDERrated!

People who are obese are more likely to have sleep apnea – I did.  People who don’t sleep enough or well enough (sleep apnea; shift work; too much late night TV) are more likely to be obese – this is true for kids and adults.

Some wives are sleep deprived due to their mates’ snoring and/or sleep apnea.

The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that children not have TVs in their bedrooms.

Dr. Ellis has used the strategies in here to: (1) lose 120 lbs over 18 months, (2) stop all antihypertensive medicines, and (3) no longer need CPAP treatment for sleep apnea.
