Some reports claim that playing the "Didgeridoo"—a Traditional Aboriginal wind instrument helps.

Twenty minutes daily seems sufficient.

I enjoyed "Playing" mine. I never mastered "Circular Breathing" or got anything but varying pitched Drones...

But I did it for about an hour daily, for about six months.

My Apnea vanished.

I get a good solid six hours or more of sleep each night and I sometimes sleep on my back for 20-30 minutes—and that is with a 26 pound Rat Terrier that climbs in and out of the bed—using me as a stepping stone—a dozen times or more nightly.

I got away from playing my Didgeridoo, but though its been a couple years since I played it regularly, the good results remain.

{I keep meaning to start regular Practice again...}

Try it In Addition to, Not Instead of Conventional Remedies...

And your results may not be as rewarding as mine.

Intriguing, any idea as to why and how it works? Is it a case of circular breathing being the helpful element, as with bagpipes and such?
