Hi, everyone. My name is Yuriy, and I have been suffering with occasional insomnia and sleep apnea for many years. Being in my mid 30s, and relatively good shape and health, my doctor was not worried since my lab results always seemed to be “in range”. My diet was good, as I made sure to eat plenty of vegetables, fruit, green smoothies, etc. However, something did not feel right. I did not feel energized after getting eight hours of sleep. I was suffering from fatigue, low energy and libido, as well as irritability and mood swings. I had problems concentrating, and was even occasionally dozing off at work, especially after lunch.
It was not after I found a new primary care doctor who took the time to listen to my symptoms and run appropriate laboratory tests, was my condition diagnosed. I had estradiol (a form of estrogen) levels that of a 60-year-old man. All of this despite lifting weights four times per week, and not being obese. My doctor suspected sleep apnea. A home sleep study confirmed the diagnosis (moderate obstructive sleep apnea). That, in addition to my insomnia and an inconsistent sleep schedule, wreaked havoc on my body. My doctor warned that failure to correct my sleep issues could result in serious health issues down the road. This was two years ago.
I became determined to turn my life around. I researched natural treatment options for my sleep apnea, and corrected years of bad habits related to my sleep schedule. Sleep is an essential component of our longevity. I decided to start Infinite Longevity to raise awareness of the growing epidemic of sleep deprivation, as well as natural remedies, and general health and well-being advice.
