At night, as we would lay there in bed, going to sleep, I would listen to him and fathom how he could even function during the day. He would fall asleep, relax, and suddenly I would hear what sounded like him struggling to take a breath, this would startle him awake, subsequently allowing him to take a breath and then go back to sleep. And that would repeat itself, over and over for hours, God only knows how many times during the night. I knew that he wasn’t getting quality sleep, let alone entering REM sleep which is crucial to our body’s survival.
We all know that as human beings, there are TWO things we need to survive, water and sleep. It has been proven that sleep deprivation can cause such an incredible impairment in your life that it has been likened to being legally intoxicated. Imagine how that can negatively impact your life over days, months and possibly even years.
Almost anyone can snore, however there are some factors that pre-dispose you to the problem, the biggest one being obesity. If you are snoring and are overweight, you can find relief in losing the excess weight, however, I am fully aware that losing weight is not only hard, but virtually impossible for some people. I would like to recommend an alternative solution; an anti-snoring mouthpiece. Anti-snoring mouthpieces are amazing inventions that are changing the world of the snoring nightmare.
Perhaps you have seen anti-snoring mouthpieces advertised online or on TV. They look very similar to the mouthpiece you see professional sports players wearing. They are very simple, easy to use and remarkably effective. Some mouthpieces have even been subjected to double blind testing with amazing results. Additionally, the awesome news is, they work the very first night you use one.
There are two different kinds of anti-snoring mouthpieces. One holds your jaw in place, the other holds your tongue. Both prevent your airway from being blocked by the tongue, jaw or tissues of the throat. Which one is right for you will depend on what part of your body is the culprit. And you may never really know until you try one. The great news is, they are fairly inexpensive and most come with a money back guarantee. If you find one doesn’t work for you, then you can simply return it and try another kind. This is a great way to find the perfect one for you.
They are not entirely without side effects. In some cases people experience some temporary tongue or jaw pain. But considering that is a small price to pay if you are able to eliminate your snoring altogether. Snoring has also been tragically linked to some very deadly health problems. It is advantageous to not only your life, but for the ones you love who might also be suffering as a result of your snoring. And as life goes, whenever you improve one area of your life, it cascades and improves other areas. For example, you can lose weight by NOT snoring. Snoring robs your body of critical chemical processes during the night that affects your metabolism. The point is, if you stop snoring, you can see all areas of your life improve, even your relationships.
When purchasing an anti-snoring mouthpiece be sure to check with your doctor, talk to others and read reviews to find a reputable device and company.
