Didgeridoo sleep apnea and snoring? How does playing help?

Researchers in Switzerland examined 25 patients who suffered from snoring and moderate obstructive sleep apnea syndrome, both common sleep disorders. Half the group were given daily 15 to 30 minute lessons in playing the didgeridoo. The study, published in the British Medical Journal's online edition found that those who played didgeridoo over a four-month trial period saw a significant improvement in their daytime sleepiness and apnea. Their partners also reported less disturbance from snoring. The researchers said training the upper airways through the breathing techniques required to play the didgeridoo was behind the improvement. "Our results may give hope to many people with moderate obstructive sleep apnea syndrome and snoring, as well as their partners," the report's authors said. While results may vary, we have had customers get back to us. They report that our didgeridoo was easy to learn to play and get the circular breathing technique. They also have seen an improvement in their conditions.

 

How long each day do I need to play the didgeridoo to help with sleep apnea and snoring?

15 to 30 minutes a day.

 

How do I play it?

It does not require a lot of pressure or force to play, you don't blow hard. It is a relaxed lip vibration (like giving a raspberry) that creates the tone. Anyone can play it, your height does not matter. Click here for more info on how to play.

 

Customer Testimonial 4/11/2012

dougnathan.jpgI was diagnosed with sleep apnea about two years ago. I followed the usual path of getting hooked up to a ventilating machine which, for me, was a bit of hell on earth. I know people who regain sleep and dreams again because of the machine, but I had a different experience. I went through several different masks and nostril pads trying to find the right fit without success. Even though it was a quiet machine, the sound of air pushing through the mask made a Darth Vader rumble that caused my wife to sleep in another room by the third night. I often found myself awake listening to the swoosh of my own breathing. And when I did sleep, I sometimes woke noticing I wasn’t breathing, waiting for the machine to engage, to force air into my lungs, until I finally realized I had better take a breath. After a tired month of trying, I packed up the machine, called my doctor and asked for a different approach. He was unsure what else to suggest. “That’s the gold standard,” he said. “Yeah, those machines are expensive,” I said. “No,” he said. “it’s the gold standard because it is the most rigorously studied and proven approach for resolving apnea incidents.” “But it doesn’t work for me,” I said. “There’s got to be another approach.” He referred me to a research article that claimed didgeridoo playing helped a small group of patients reduce their apnea episodes. “Why don’t you read the article, follow the regime it lists and let me know how it goes for you.” I figured that if practicing didge for 15-30 minutes a day could reverse my sleep-apnea and keep me off that machine, it was worth trying. I ordered my first didgeridoo online. The results have been life altering. I have more energy throughout the day. I sleep better at night, and I dream again. It took about a week of playing 30-60 minutes a day (I was a bit of a zealot—I wanted to be healthy again!) before I noticed a change. I don’t know anyone who plays nearby, so I watched and listened to YouTube videos (thanks to all of you out there teaching so generously online!). I didn’t worry about sounding good. I just experimented with sounds and kept the drone going. I eventually learned circular breathing, and that opened up the possibilities. I continue to play for 15-30 minutes everyday, although I miss a day or two every now and then without any noticeable difference in my sleep. But I travel as part of my work, and occasionally have missed several days in a row. Each time my snoring has gotten louder and I begin feeling run down. But after a day or two of practicing, I return to sound sleep. I just ordered the travel didge and am very happy with its tone, light weight and packability. Thanks so much for your innovative design. The didge continues to be good medicine for me and a lot of fun to play--wherever I go! ~Doug

  1. "Extras" lacking

    Posted by Chris on 1st Feb 2014

    The bag smelled heavily of mildew and mold.smelled right out of the box. A quick wash and it was alright though.

    The instructional disc, for some reason, comes on a mini disc, which I currently own nothing that currently accepts one.

    The digeridoo itself was great, and exactly what I expected.


  2. Seep apnea review

    Posted by Katherine on 24th Apr 2013

    My husband of 22 yrs. has had sleep apnea since he & I have been together. I read in my Woman's World magazine that playing a didgeridoo would help where other products may have failed. My husband had major problems with trying to sleep with a mask on his face. His sleep apnea had started taking its toll on him physically as well as mentally. He was tired all the time even after 10 hours of sleep & he was cranky & irritable in addition to having problems with his weight and blood pressure. I was willing to try anything to help him. Even though we were both skeptical on the idea of a musical instrument could help, I figured I would go ahead & order him one. If it didn't work, I could always give it to my son since he likes unconventional music instruments. My husband didn't notice a change at first, but oh boy did I! He has had his didgeridoo for about a month now & not only is he resting better, but he also loves to just sit & play. I would definitely recommend this instrument to anyone who has sleeping problems.


  3. Great Learner

    Posted by Ray Remillard on 26th Feb 2013

    I got this and a more advanced model at the same time. I'm glad I did. The more advanced model is difficult for me now, but this I was able to get a good sound out of right from the start. I can see how this will help me develop my skills before moving on to the hand crafted, eucalyptus model. It's well built and the accompanying DVD is a great help!
