How has your LPR been lately? I have LPR as well and have great difficulty breathing in my sleep at times. The LPR combined with OSA, the CPAP and supplemental O2 still sometimes have problems keeping my SpO2 above 90%.
I just learned a couple things yesterday. In the stomach acid is an enzyme called pepcin. It comes up the esophogus and to throat and gets in mucus in the throat and sinuses even. Then when you drink ACV or eat something acidic, the acid activates the pepcin and then your throat and sinus start digesting themselves (the proteins) and it causes the cough and breathing difficulties, alogn with post nasal drip / stuffy nose.
There is a remedy a doctor shared on youtube, how to naturally treat LPR by making a liquid solution of distilled water along with baking soda. Which you then pour into a clean empty nasal spray bottle. You then breath through your mouth and while breathing spray the nasal spray bottle into your throat. The alkaline deactivates / neutralizes the pepcin. This can also be done via both nostrils to clear nasal issues related to pepcin there.
I tried to drink ACV last night to resolve my GERD issue to try and get rid of this LPR… but this was before I learned about pepcin. And within 15minutes, I had a pretty nasty cough. The pepcin in my throat was quickly activated. So today I thought of a clever idea of using large gelcap (size 000) to fill with 1.5 ml of pure organic apple cider vinegar, that way I can ingest the ACV without it activating the pepcin in my throat/nose and esophogus. I’ll let ya know if it helps.
So between these ACV capsules and the LPR nasal spray … along with quittign coffee altogether (almost there… down to 1 mug per day from 6 mugs) and other dietary changes (I am gonan try eliminatng a lot of things alogn with perhaps some fasting)… I am hoping all this will resolve my problem so I no longer need suplmental O2 at night and can perhaps even reverse the OSA. My OSA is very mild and actually it was the LPR which caused me to have to get the CPAP in the first place… I used to sleep just fine before the LPR.
