INVITATION TO SLEEP DISORDERS SPECIALIST MEDICINE DOCTORS
you in an effort to get my findings on Non Obstructive Sleep
Apnea (NOSA) be known and thus become useful to millions of
I have no commercial interest in this subject.
If you kindly take a few minutes to read this mail either
you will lose a very little part of your life or you will
become able to help millions of individuals that suffer NOSA,
an illness that supposedly derives from a “central”
or neurological unknown disease.
These misdiagnosed patients are condemned to use CPAP, an
impairing aggressive useless device sold as the sole solution
to their problem, so your help would be a life saver for millions.
My findings on NOSA are supported by several proven facts.
One of these was awarded the Nobel Prize on 2007: the protein
called “Na-K pump”.
I contend NOSA is just a consequence of low sodium in blood.
Under this condition, both nerves and muscles do not work
properly: they lose their ability to detect and emitting signals,
to store energy and even to properly get the nutrients they
In order to breath, muscles responsible of inhaling must work
harder than their counterparts, since it is easier to exhale
than to inhale. There is the need of a larger work to expand
the lungs than to contract them.
When there is low sodium in blood, every muscle is under a
diminished condition, and since they must do a harder job
than their counterparts, muscles responsible of expanding
thorax and abdomen in order to deliver an inhalation, gradually
lose the battle. While asleep, patient breathes in a progressive
slighter way until the lack of oxygen impels him to wake up
to get in charge of his own hard condition.
a short view of several demonstrations of my theory:
Reaction to salt intake
When a group of patients who each night suffer several Sleep
Apnea crisis are given enough common salt, the Apnea bursts
disappear in each and all of them, almost no exceptions, to
such an extent that they will start experiencing at most one
or two apneas a month and some of them will even do not suffer
Apneas for many months.
Conversely, if those patients who have recovered from Sleep
Apnea by means of eating enough salt are now submitted to
a low sodium diet, very soon (in most cases the very same
day in which they start the diet) they will suffer several
Sleep Apneas bursts every night.
This demonstration is so easy to test, so risk free and so
important for so many patients worldwide that I humbly ask
you please to submit a group of your patients to it.
Not enough Sodium in blood means that “NA-K pump”,
a protein that is part of the membrane of each muscular and
neural cell, will not work properly: muscles do not detect
neural signals and they lose efficacy as a result of a lack
of nutrients and because their energy storing capacity is
reduced as much as fifty per cent. The capability of nerves
to emit, transmit and detect signals is impaired. All this
has been demonstrated by 2007 Nobel Prize Mr. Jens Skou.
Patient does not confront a Central deficiency or a failure
which is located somewhere in his vegetative or autonomous
system. He confronts a subtle but general failure that affects
all his neural and muscular cells. He is under a scenario
where his nerves, the tools he has to detect, transmit and
communicate are diminished, are weakened. Additionally, the
capability of his muscles to detect the orders they receive
is impaired, not to mention the fact that once they finally
get the order they will barely find themselves in proper condition
to respond to it.
No wonder then that a sophisticated and delicate process of
so subtle equilibrium as breathe will stop operating autonomously
when sodium diminishes across the organism.
And additionally the complex system of alarms that would allow
the central nervous system to react will do it late and poorly
to such an extreme that individual that suffers of a sodium
deficiency must wake up in order to voluntarily take the measures
needed to avoid dying by asphyxia.
Sleep Apnea show several “time related” features.
All of them point to a progressive shortage of some chemical.
Neither of them point towards a neurological or central failure,
since the latter type of failure is not time related: it will
hit randomly in terms of time.
May be the only time related feature is neurological system
works better after patient has rested and it is prone to fail
when patient is exhausted.
Sleep apnea works right the opposite way: the longer patient
sleeps, the harder and more frequent NOSA hits.
Other NOSA time related features:
a. most patients first Apneas become apparent at dawn: after
several hours of sleep.
b. patients of mild NOSA will sleep during one to three hours
before they start suffering NOSA bursts
There is a high positive correlation between Sleep Apnea and
aging: both of them grow simultaneously. The higher the age
of a group of individuals, a higher percentage of them suffer
Most NOSA patients are 35 and older. It is at this age that
muscular deterioration starts becoming evident unless there
is a proper taking care of it.
Medicine accepts Restless Leg Syndrome (RLS) is a consequence
of a slight lack of sodium in blood and that Stupor is a consequence
of an acute chronic lack of sodium in blood.
If a lack of sodium in blood can seriously affect a complete
set of strong and large muscles as those of legs, why won’t
it be capable of impairing the functioning of a large set
of muscles that must delicately work to deliver autonomous
If an acute chronic lack of sodium in blood brings stupor
to elder to such an extent that they can hardly react to external
stimuli, we will better think that a mild chronic shortage
of sodium in blood might interfere with autonomous breathing,
a process that has to do with the capability to react to subtle
On the other hand, it is not that elders suddenly reach a
stupor condition after years of low sodium in blood. Obviously
they enter into a process of showing several progressive symptoms,
one of which is their increasing difficulty to react to external
stimuli. They additionally experience autonomous breathing
hardships that precisely are a result of chronic low sodium
in blood and that contribute to accelerate their general deterioration.
are the pillars of my findings.
you to indulge in a simple research whose results would be
of great help to Sleep Apnea patients.
a light Kidney insufficiency and during more than ten years
I suffered from Non Obstructive Apnea (NOSA), an illness which
supposedly has no cure. Fact is that I have entirely recovered
from NOSA to the extent that now I usually go through several
months sleeping normally after years suffering several asphyxias
every single night.
also called Central Apnea because the dominant theory is that
NOSA is a consequence of an unknown failure that affects the
Central Nervous System. This theory, besides being false and
psychologically devastating for the patient, is widely used
to justify the need of connecting the patient every night
to a CPAP.
facts made me doubt that I might be suffering a Central Nervous
System illness that might be impeding my autonomous breathing.
So I spent years studying and keeping records of my apnea
bursts and their circumstances until I arrived to a couple
of conclusions that allowed me to entirely recover fromm Sleep
Apnea, an illness that officially has no cure.
of those conclusion is that what causes NOSA is a shortage
of sodium in blood. So, as well as Restless Leg Syndrome and
Stupor, Non Obstructive Sleep Apnea is a symptom of not having
as much sodium in blood as needed.
you to help to demonstrate and to make it widely known that
individuals who suffer from Non Obstructive Sleep Apnea:
a. they do not suffer from a Central Nervous System disease
b. they do not need to connect themselves to a CPAP that will
make their life almost unbearable and that in a very short
time will put them in the hands of a quite more aggressive
and incurable disease: Obstructive Sleep Apnea
c. that in order to entirely cure from NOSA all the patient
needs to do is to have his sodium intake under control: to
eat enough sodium so he can sleep perfectly and not to eat
too much sodium, which might be risky for his health.
is a very simple way of demonstrating those three facts working
with a group of Sleep Apnea Patients:
a. During three to five days you administer them a diet which
is normal in sodium or you at least a little amount of common
salt just before they go to sleep and the day after you make
a record on whether that night each of them suffered Sleep
Apnea or not.
b. Immediately after that period of eating enough salt, you
put those patients under a no sodium diet during a week and
you register how they start developing NOSA once again.
done this practical study both with a few Polycystic Kidney
(Salt Consuming Disease) patients and with myself. Output
was that there is a high positive correlation between NOSA
and a low level of Sodium in Blood (Hyponatremia).
make this research with a group of your patients so you, as
a medicine doctor, might publish your findings and conclusions
in magazines and might give lectures on how to put and end
to this illness that supposedly has no cure.
research would allow you to make a great contribution both
to NOSA patients and to all our society, since Sleep Apnea
has strong individual and social consequences.
you go ahead with this study, kindly let me know its results
so they can be included at R.F. Kloss Foundation web site
(www.rfkloss.org), a place that since already more than a
year has been giving free information and help to Sleep Apnea
fact I observed, which might as well be demonstrated through
an experimental study, is that a strong reduction in animal
proteins intake allows patient to keep a good sodium in blood
level without the need of eating much salt or sodium. I just
do not know why this happens, but the fact is most individuals
can get rid from their Non Obstructive Sleep Apnea just by
drastically reducing their animal proteins intake and keeping
a very light sodium consumption.
that you will soon become an apostle in this crusade.
