Pain and Fatigue Q & A

How are pain and fatigue treated?

Dr. Keropian provides his patented Full Breath Solution to give your body the oxygen it needs. Building on his studies of the work of Dr. Otto Warburg, he created a small and comfortable but effective mouthpiece that connects to an oxygen concentrator to provide a steady stream of oxygen while you sleep, increasing your oxygen intake to 95% to 99%.

After winning a Nobel Prize in 1931 for demonstrating the adverse effects of insufficient oxygenation, Dr. Warburg continued his research on how abundant oxygen, over 95% in the body, led to the elimination of cancer, infection, virus, and changed the body from acidic to alkaline.

With this in mind, Dr. Keropian designed a mouthpiece with an adjustable wire tail to depress the tongue and keep the airway open. He added oxygen tubes that connect to an oxygen concentrator to deliver a high percentage of oxygen to the body.  In clinical trials, Dr. Keropian was able to reach 95% oxygenation. According to the Nobel Prize winner, high oxygenation levels improve every aspect of your health, and Dr. Keropian’s patented mouthpieces and Full Breath Solution is what you need to enhance your health.

How does sleep apnea cause pain and fatigue?

Sleep apnea causes low levels of oxygen in the body, a condition known clinically as hypoxemia.  Hypoxemia, in turn, makes your body becomes acidic. The combination of hypoxemia and acidosis is one the most dangerous and devastating maladies the body faces as it weakens your immune system and contributes to a wide range of diseases ranging from obesity to cancer.

Abundant O2 does away with the acidity and increases the strength of the immune system.  A strong immune system can lead to elimination or reduction of pain.

Hypoxemia contributes to eight of the 10 leading causes of death listed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), including:

  • Heart disease
  • Cancer
  • Lung disease
  • Brain Disease
  • Alzheimer's
  • Diabetes
  • Flu & Pneumonia
  • Kidney Disease

Every one of these eight conditions is exacerbated by hypoxemia and acidosis.

How is hypoxemia-related pain and fatigue diagnosed?

At Full Breath Center of Beverly Hills, Dr. Keropian performs sleep studies including polysomnograms monitor and record information about your sleep, oxygen levels, respiration, heart rate, and brain activity. The polysomnogram provides information about how many times you stop breathing each hour and how it impacts the amount of oxygen in your body. This information helps diagnose the cause and severity of your condition.

With the sleep tests, we diagnose sleep apnea and low oxygen.  We can get you the oxygen your body needs to function with good health, eliminate or reduce pain, and get you great energy.

Sleep studies identify sleep apnea, a leading cause of hypoxemia. Dr. Keropian offers in-office sleep studies, or he can provide equipment to monitor your sleep at home. Sleep studies are often covered by PPO insurance and Medicare.
