Today our guest is Dr. Dave Hopper from WholeHumanHealth.com. Dr. Dave is an ex MMA fighter, current personal trainer, Chiropractor, and Obstructive Sleep Apnea Specialist.
One night, Dave was getting weird calls from his dad in the middle of the night. When he finally answered, his dad told him he thought he was having a heart attack. Come to find out, he was actually suffering from Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA). A few years down the road, Dr. Dave was encouraged for create a Defense Program for OSA to help his dad and the 25% of the population who suffers from the symptoms.
Signs of OSA very but can include excessive day time sleepiness (falling asleep while driving – yikes!), waking during the night several times, GERD, grinding of teeth, snoring and much more. Fortunately, Dr. Dave has a non-invasive test you can do at home to discover if you have OSA and a super comprehensive Defense Program to help completely eliminate it.
