Achondroplasia comes with a plethora of complications, some of which can be managed and some cannot.
However, there is a natural and easy way to reduce at least 4 of these complications and transform lives!

1. Obesity: For those who were born with Achondroplasia, you know that keeping the weight off can be extra challenging. You also know that it is extra important to control weight gain as your back and joint problems are intensified.


The pattern of weight gain for most people with or without achondroplasia begins in early childhood. The pattern has been set. It is difficult to change those habits once they are established.

2. Sleep Apnea: Obesity can lead to sleep apnea! Sleep apnea is considered a serious medical condition.

Complications from sleep apnea may include:

  • High blood pressure or heart problems.
  • Sudden drops in blood oxygen levels that occur during sleep apnea increase blood pressure and strain the cardiovascular system.
  • Sleep apnea increases the risk of stroke, regardless of whether or not you have high blood pressure.
  • If there's underlying heart disease, these multiple episodes of low blood oxygen (hypoxia or hypoxemia) can lead to sudden death from a cardiac event.
  • Sleep apnea is associated with increased risk of atrial fibrillation, congestive heart failure and other vascular diseases.
  • Daytime fatigue.

    The repeated awakenings associated with sleep apnea make normal, restorative sleep impossible.
  • People with sleep apnea often experience severe daytime drowsiness, fatigue and irritability.
  • You may have difficulty concentrating and find yourself falling asleep anywhere at anytime!
  • You may also feel irritable, moody or depressed.
  • Children and adolescents with sleep apnea may do poorly in school or have behavior problems.
  • Liver problems.

    People with sleep apnea are more likely to have abnormal results on liver function tests, and their livers are more likely to show signs of scarring.
  • Loud snoring can keep those around you from getting good rest and can ruin relationships.
  • Memory problems, morning headaches, mood swings or feelings of depression, a need to urinate frequently at night (nocturia), and a decreased interest in sex.
  • Children with untreated sleep apnea may be hyperactive and may be diagnosed with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).

In many cases, self-care may be the most appropriate way for you to deal with sleep apnea.

Even a slight loss in excess weight may help relieve constriction of your throat. Sleep apnea may be cured in some cases by a return to a healthy weight.

3. Middle Ear Infections: Another problem that people born with achondroplasia suffer frequently from is middle ear infections (otis media) which can lead to mild to moderate hearing loss.

4. Dental Crowding: A common problem typical to those with achondroplasia is dental crowding. This is a contributing factor to infections and heart related problems. It is much more difficult to properly clean all the surfaces of your teeth.

This can then lead to dental decay and gum disease. Constant pain, swelling, and pain are part of this picture.

If periodontal disease commences this can lead to:

  • Bone loss
  • Increased pain
  • Infections
  • Bad breath
  • Altered taste
  • Ear aches
  • Swollen glands

Periodontal disease also leads to Cysts (filled with blood and puss).
Cysts can lead to even bigger infections or tumors!

Bacteria trapped in the mouth can lead to:

  • Diabetes
  • Heart disease
  • Kidney disease

Self-Care is the key to remaining healthy! Thankfully, it can be accomplished easily!

All it takes is switching one habit for a healthy one! It takes very little effort and the results can be seen within days!

Ganoderma lucidum is the answer! This super-charged mushroom can deliver a powerful punch to aid in making the necessary changes you need!
