Singing for Sleep Apnea?
And now from the "What scam will they think of next?" Department...


Singing for Sleep Apnea?

As an independent sleep apnea researcher, Mar MacDonald developed The Singing for Sleep Apnea Program to help users cure their sleep apnea and snoring. This new treatment does not require people to use any equipment during their sleep or undergo any surgery. This program consisting of a 25-page manual and 13 audio file guides users to enhance their pharyngeal fitness. The exercises in the program are led by Emily Tucker who works as a professional actor, a musician, and a published composer. On the program's website, a recently posted review shows whether The Singing for Sleep Apnea Program is effective.

The Singing for Sleep Apnea Program explains how singing exercises can cure sleep apnea and snoring. In fact, it shares true stories in which people achieved success in treating their sleep apnea by doing sleep exercises. It also shows whether singing exercises can treat obstructive sleep apnea. The program provides users with 13 singing exercises and tips that can help them strengthen their airway quickly. The program tells users what they need to do before singing and how long this warm up activity should take. It also reveals how long users should practice their singing exercises each day and how long they can see their results. Last but not least, it teaches users how to get the best results from their singing practice and take full control of their sleep apnea.

This program has two versions: the digital version and the physical one. Users will receive free lifetime updates of Singing for Sleep Apnea Program and 3-month counseling with Marc MacDonald. They will also receive two more bonuses including Insomnia No More e-book and Proven Sleep Hygiene Techniques report.

Sounds like fun. Now where's the randomised double-blind clinical study?

I'd prefer the follow-up book "Curing apnea by shouting, stomping, and reading Vogon poetry."

Trust me, you don't want me in that Chorus - I sing like Barney Fife.

RE: Singing for Sleep Apnea?
Actually, this is real. I am a voice teacher, I sang professionally for over 40 years, and never had Apnea until I STOPPED singing.

I notice that when I teach a student and sing a lot, my apnea decreases, which to me, makes sense. One of the things you must do when singing is to raise your palate high and that exercises the throat and get's it into shape. One exercise you can do is to pretend you are going to eat a dish of something and pretend you have a spoon in your hand, bring it to your mouth as if you are going to eat, and you will feel your palate raise up considerably. It also exercises your tongue doing quick vocal jumps up and down the scale. These are exercises I teach my students. It doesn't matter if you sing well, just try it.

I have to go back and make sure I do this daily, I get really lazy and don't sing if I am not teaching, I was singing 6 nights a week in a lounge for many years and then sang for cruise lines in the theater, and was in the best shape.

The didgeridoo to me would be more fun and save everyone's ears in our house! But, if the dogs join in if I were to sing, it might cover up my bad singing and be a lot of fun
