Are you tired all the time no matter how long you sleep? Do you keep waking up at night, or have to go to the bathroom too often? Are you told that you snore or stop breathing at night while sleeping? Most people take it for granted that we are able to breathe properly at night, but for most modern humans, this is not necessarily the case. Poor breathing while sleeping can aggravate or cause a variety of health problems from anxiety and depression to heart disease and strokes. There are also many myths and misconceptions about snoring and obstructive sleep apnea that even most physicians still believe. Join Dr. Steven Y. Park, expert forum physician for Medhelp's sleep-breathing forum, as he answers your questions on anything related to better breathing and better sleep.<br><br> Dr. Steven Y. Park is a board certified otolaryngologist (ear, nose and throat physician and surgeon), specializing in helping people sleep better by helping them breathe better. He is the author of the book, Sleep, Interrupted: A physician reveals the #1 reason why so many of us are sick and tired. It was endorsed by New York Times best-selling authors Christiane Northrup, M.D., Dean Ornish, M.D., Mark Liponis, M.D., Mary Shomon, and many others. He received his undergraduate degree from The Johns Hopkins University, and his medical degree from Columbia University's College of Physicians & Surgeons.
