Welcome to Snorevember

Welcome to Snorevember

A month seems to be regarded as the standard time period to stop things that damage your health so SleepPro have decided to join in. We’re going to call it Snorevember for all the obvious reasons, and to celebrate the Stop Snoring month of Snorevember we’re going to do a special price offer for our Custom mouthpiece. It has recently become very highly rated in clinical tests. You’ll find the details of the offer here on our website and it will start at the end of this week – so keep looking. You’ll be able to save £75.
But….read on and find out why you need to do that.

Schnarchen - Paar im Bett

 

 

Many different campaigns have been urging people to give up alcohol and tobacco for October. We’ve had ‘Go Sober for October’ and quit smoking for ‘Stoptober’. You can grow a moustache for Movember and a beard for Decembeard. In the New Year apparently you’ll be able to regret all that festive alcohol and quit dinking with Dry January or Dryathalon.

Strangely enough they all seem to be successful, either in fundraising for great causes like MacMillan or in improving an individual’s health as they give up certain long-held and damaging vices.

It’s inevitable there will be concurrent crusades. There are lots of good causes but only 12 months in the year. This is no bad thing, because in charity and health promotion, just as much as in business, “competition grows the market”…..and if you give up one bad habit you’re more likely to quit another.

Snoring has never really been considered a vice – but it is – it kills.

Often regarded as simply a music hall joke, and done by men only, the truth is coming out. Snoring, and in its worst form where it’s known as OSA, or obstructive sleep apnoea, is now regarded as a deadly sleep disorder.

All our bodily systems need oxygen to function, and as we spend around one-third of each day sleeping, those with sleep apnoea are not getting enough oxygen for a third of their lives. Over time, the built-up effects of reduced oxygen contribute to a host of other conditions, making the true cost of sleep apnoea a sky-high, uncountable figure. Weight gain makes a huge contribution to this happening, along with age.

Sleep apnoea contributes to the most common and expensive diseases that we treat, notably high blood pressure, diabetes, cardiovascular disease like stroke and heart attack—and those are just the common ones. Women with sleep apnea are also known to have low birth-weight babies and a much higher frequency of caesarean section. In addition to this, adults who sleep poorly have a higher incidence of anxiety, depression, and chronic headaches, particularly morning ones. In children, sleep apnea is closely linked with ADHD.

As you can see – it’s a deadly serious subject.

That’s the bad news over and the good news is that it’s really easy to fix – and it can be done fast. A simple oral appliance, worn at night and just like a sports gum-shield will fix the problem for you. It will stop you snoring immediately and even reverse some of the damage already done.

Snoring can’t be ignored – and it’s certainly not funny. If you snore – just ask your partner or your children because they are suffering too – because of you. Take a look at the choice of mouthpieces we have available – but don’t forget the coming offer. It’s a small amount to spend to save your life and as is the Custom, we’d like to make our contribution.

Join Snorevember – be healthier – and live much longer.
