The start of a new year is always a time for us all to reassess our lives and undertake new directions, particularly as far as our health is concerned. To help us to do this, the current growth in our scientific and medical knowledge has included an improved understanding of sleep and its vital importance to our long-term health.
The past few years has seen significant advances in research showing a clear connection between poor and disturbed sleep and health conditions that range from early death to strokes, heart attacks, diabetes, Alzheimer’s Disease and even cancer. Science is clarifying how important this is and why getting enough quality, refreshing sleep is vital to have happy and healthy lives. At the same time, public awareness is now beginning to grow about the importance of good sleep.
Many factors contribute to poor sleep, and at least some of them can be addressed with wider recognition of sleep’s role for health. Sleep remains relatively low on most people’s priority list, and the result is that people do not address factors that harm sleep and are at least partially controllable: busy schedules, stress, smoking, alcohol or weight gain. It is time for us to pay much more attention to sleep and to modify our lifestyles to recognize the value of sleep to our future health.
A key element of this is to stop snoring. This is the most widespread sleep disorder of all, but is so often ignored and even thought amusing, which it certainly isn’t, either for the person snoring, or anyone else that has constantly disturbed sleep due to the problem.
We need to learn that it’s so easy stop snoring and sleep better.
It’s also vital to consider if it’s just snoring or is it sleep apnoea which is a more dangerous problem altogether, but often with an equally simple and similar solution.
The biggest tell tale sign is how you feel during the day. Normal snoring doesn’t interfere with the quality of your sleep quite as much as sleep apnoea does, so you’re less likely to suffer from extreme fatigue and sleepiness during the day.
Even if you don’t have sleep apnoea, a snoring problem can still get in the way of your bed partner’s rest and affect your own sleep quality and health and there are quick, inexpensive, proven treatments that can help, and can do so fast without a prescription.
It’s as simple as acquiring a stop snoring mouthpiece to wear at night. They are readily available online, simple to use, and because they can be moulded to fit your teeth and jaw, are comfortable to wear. They are similar to a sports mouthpiece but with a different type of safety in mind as the end objective. More importantly they are incredibly effective and will stop the problem of snoring in 98% of cases.
To stop snoring by changing your lifestyle takes a very long time and you may not be successful, because as we know, it’s difficult to do, and slimming and stopping smoking are two prime examples of this. A mouthpiece on the other hand will work immediately.
For snoring, and mild to moderate cases of sleep apnoea, a stop snoring mouthpiece is now so often the solution of medical choice, and medical professionals and health authorities worldwide recommend them, including the NHS in Britain.
