The Snoring Mouthpiece Review Releases Post On Solutions For The Sleep Deprived Due To Snoring

The Snoring Mouthpiece Review, an organization based in Long Beach, California, has announced that they have recently published a blog post offering some solutions for those who find it difficult to sleep because they snore or their partner snores. The article is titled, “Sleep Solutions You Can Try.” One of the potential reasons why people cannot get enough sleep is that they snore or they sleep beside one who does. The article points out that approximately 40 percent of adult men and 24 percent of adult women snore regularly, which means that it is likely that people are not getting enough sleep because their significant other snores or they themselves snore.

Steve Walker, a spokesperson for The Snoring Mouthpiece Review, says, “You can always try sleeping in separate bedrooms but that’s a very temporary solution. Sleeping away from your snoring partner is just going to help you. It will not, in any way, help your snoring partner. As a matter of fact, it might even hurt your snoring partner.”

He explains, “If your partner snores heavily, the more he or she will need you to stay close by. Heavy snoring is a manifestation of stoppage of breathing. As annoying as it may sound, you may need to wake up your snoring partner when you hear him or her struggle for air.”

One possible solution for snoring is the CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure) machine to help the person with breathing while sleeping. The CPAP machine will not just help get rid of snoring, but it will also help the individual feel more refreshed when waking up in the morning. However, the use of a CPAP machine will require a recommendation from a doctor and it is usually only used for severe cases of snoring.

Another possible solution is to change the person’s sleep position. When people sleep on their back, this can cause the tongue to drop back into the throat, causing a blockage. While it may take some time to get used to, sleeping on one’s side instead of on one’s back can possibly eliminate snoring. The sleeping partner …

How To Avoid Overtiredness

As grown ups, we often associate fatigue and sleep. The more tired we are, the easier it is to fall asleep, right? Well, it’s not necessarily the case, and it’s actually quite the opposite in babies and toddlers. Overtiredness can lead to bursts of energy and playfulness, which can cause baby to have a terrible time getting to, and staying, asleep.

Sick of Snoring?

The ZYPPAH is an anti-snore mouthpiece that uses a patented elastic that acts as “a seatbelt for your tongue.”

The brand claims that this will stop our tongue from falling back into our airway, which will result in a quiet night with no snoring.

Along with holding our tongue in place, this anti-snore mouthpiece also repositions the lower jaw, using a process known as mandibular advancement, to move it forward to open our airway even more.

Keeping Bedtime As Quiet As Possible

Relax. Close your eyes. Leave your worries behind and slumber into the quiet world of sleep one breath at a time. It feels so good until you’re awaken by your snoring partner. Suddenly, you’re back, wide awake, staring at your partner who is snoring like a mooing cow. You think to yourself, it’s unfair!

Snoring is many things, from that stealer of sleep to relationship saboteur. The pathology of what makes us snore is thankfully much simpler. When you fall asleep, all of the muscles and soft tissues in your neck, throat and airway relax. As you then inhale (our breathing rate is around 15 to 20 breaths a minute) the air is forced over these relaxed and floppy structures, causing them to vibrate. It is these vibrations that we hear as a snore.

It’s normal to snore but it wouldn’t hurt to monitor the frequency of it.

Frequency of snoring is essentially intermittent or chronic. Intermittent snoring is often caused by something out of the ordinary for you, such as excessive alcohol, which relaxes your neck muscles even more and pushes you into a deeper sleep – it is a sedative, remember. Chronic snoring is more likely defined by fixed issues (although not, as you will see, entirely irremediable) such as only being able to sleep on your back or having a structural issue with your airway (like being punched in the face too many times).

Snoring varies. Some aren’t so bad, while some can really be deafening. The severity of snoring can be graded from one to three, three being severe.

Grade-one (mild) snoring: This is infrequent snoring that has no health impact on you and may only lead to minor relationship issues.

Grade-two (moderate) snoring: This is snoring three or more days a week that may contribute to some daytime fatigue and more fatal relationship issues.

Grade-three (severe) snoring: This is heavy and loud snoring on a regular basis that can have physical, mental and social health problems – including obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) – and being dumped.

Humidifier: A Great Gift Even For A Snorer

Humidifiers are very popular nowadays. They’re everywhere. Who wouldn’t appreciate a humidifier? A humidifier brings a breath of fresh air into a room. It gives it a spa-like ambience.

A humidifier does more than just provide a spa-like ambience to a room. It’s actually pretty useful to have a humidifier especially during the winter season.

Humidifiers are getting quite popular these days, but before buying a humidifier you must ask yourself will I benefit from using a humidifier? A humidifier is an electronic device that is used to add moisture in the room. Humidifiers generally become a necessity during the winter season, when there are lower levels of humidity in the air and the heating systems dry out the air.

If you’re thinking of a gift for a friend or a family member, a humidifier is a very practical choice. The recipient will surely love it. It’s a practical gift because of the many uses of this particular electronic device.

Other than just adding moisture in the air, humidifiers have several other benefits too.

Here are the benefits of having a humidifier in the room. First and foremost, it relieves allergic symptoms.

Humidifiers are a great remedy to relieve the symptoms of different allergies. The past models of humidifiers add too much humidity into the air, which leads to the growth of certain fungi and bacteria. However, the latest models add a moderate level of moisture in the air. Average and balanced moisture soothes the nasal passages and throat and thus, the allergic person feels more comfortable.

Also, the latest models of humidifiers have a special system installed in them that kills certain germs and inhibits their growth.

Humidifiers warms up the room.

According to studies, a humidified air is warmer as compared to the dry air. In the moist atmosphere, the sweat evaporates more slowly, that keep people warmer. Thus with the help of humidifiers, one can even save on the heating bills.

Even your furniture will benefit.

Alternatives to Crying it Out

The traditional “Cry-it-out” approach to getting your little one to sleep may be effective, but for many parents, it’s just not something they’re comfortable with.

On the other hand, constantly rocking, shushing, or nursing your baby to sleep every time they wake up can create associations that make it harder for baby to fall asleep independently and can result in frequent nighttime wake-ups.

Luckily, there are several options in between these two far ends of the sleep training spectrum. I’ll tell you all about them and help you evaluate which one is right for your family in today’s video.

Glidewell Dental Oasys Hinge Appliance (PDAC Approved)

Glidewell Dental has released a new mandibular advancement device, the Oasys Hinge Appliance. This oral sleep appliance is Medicare and PDAC (Pricing, Data Analysis and Coding) cleared under code E0486 to treat patients with mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea (OSA).

“Snoring is a warning sign that should not be ignored,” says Randy Clare, director of brand and product management at Glidewell Dental, in a release. “An estimated 50% of US adults snore and 30 percent of people are habitual snorers. In addition, adults over the age of 65 are at an increased risk of obstructive sleep apnea, which can be very serious if left untreated. Two common symptoms of OSA include loud, chronic snoring and daytime sleepiness.”

The Oasys Hinge Appliance is designed to gently shift the lower jaw forward during sleep, which activates the airway muscles and ligaments to prevent the airway from collapsing. The device is custom-made for each patient. It’s micro-adjustable (0.25 mm increments), with up to 10 mm of advancement based on the patient’s needs. The telescope-style hinge allows for natural jaw movement and can be adjusted chairside or at home. Patients with Medicare insurance qualify for reimbursement of their oral appliance, making it easy and affordable to get treated.

“Oral appliance therapy is a simple and effective method for achieving a more restful night’s sleep, resulting in renewed energy during the day,” says Clare. “As dentists welcome more integrative solutions for treating patients, the Oasys Hinge Appliance will become the go-to sleep device to prevent snoring and obstructive sleep apnea.”

More Cancer Cases Seen Among Women with Sleep Apnea Than in Men and in People Without OSA

Women with severe sleep apnea appear to be at an elevated risk of getting cancer, a study shows. No causal relationship is demonstrated, but the link between nocturnal hypoxia in women and higher cancer risk is still clear.

“It’s reasonable to assume that sleep apnea is a risk factor for cancer, or that both conditions have common risk factors, such as overweight. On the other hand, it is less likely that cancer leads to sleep apnea,” says Ludger Grote, adjunct professor and chief physician in sleep medicine, and the last author of the current study, in a release.

The research, published in the European Respiratory Journal, is based on analyses of registry data, collected in the European database ESADA, on a total of some 20,000 adult patients with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). About 2% of them also had a cancer diagnosis.

As expected, advanced age was associated with elevated cancer risk, but adjusting the data for age, gender, body mass index (BMI), smoking, and alcohol consumption nevertheless showed a possible link between intermittent hypoxia at night and higher cancer prevalence. The connection applied mainly to women and was weaker in men.

“Our results indicate a cancer risk that’s elevated two- to three-fold among women with pronounced sleep apnea. It’s impossible to say for sure what causes underlie the association between sleep apnea and cancer, but the indication means we need to study it in more depth,” says Grote, who is also a senior consultant and head of medicine at the Department of Sleep Medicine at Sahlgrenska University Hospital.

“The condition of sleep apnea is well known to the general public and associated with snoring, daytime fatigue, and elevated risk of cardiovascular disease, especially in men. Our research paves the way for a new view—that sleep apnea may possibly be connected with increased cancer risk, especially in women,” Grote says.

Previous studies have shown that, more often than others, people with sleep apnea have a cancer diagnosis in their medical history. Research in this area is expanding, while the gender aspects have hardly been explored.

Share! Narcolepsy with Cataplexy PSA Video with Ode to Joy Movie

Friends: I’m SO beyond thrilled to share the news with you today that Project Sleep proudly partnered with IFC Films and Ode to Joy Director, Jason Winer, to create a PSA to raise awareness about narcolepsy with cataplexy.

Please watch and share with friends!

Watch this video on YouTube.

Teamwork makes the dream work

I am so grateful to Jason and IFC for their enthusiasm and partnership. Creating this video was a team effort, with significant contributions by many thoughtful people. Most notably, a huge shout out to Hannah Powell for making this project a reality and working with myself and Project Sleep every step of the way!

How this came to be

Over the past year, I researched how other disease communities have worked with and responded to the film industry in similar situations. I interviewed health communications experts and people in “the industry.” I learned A LOT. (Honestly, it would be another post entirely to explain how eye-opening this process was, but I’ll link to my fav articles at the bottom of this post.)

Since Ode to Joy was in post-production as of 2018, influencing the content of the actual film itself was unlikely. Experts advised me to focus “my asks” on the marketing and distribution phase. 

One of my key “asks” was to collaborate on a short PSA to raise awareness about narcolepsy with cataplexy surrounding the film’s release. Examples I’d seen included Netflix’s To The Bone Nine Truths PSA and The Emoji Movie‘s Stand Up to Bullying campaign.

Once in communication with Ode to Joy’s team, I presented “my asks” and director, Jason Winer, loved the PSA idea and quickly committed to working together to make this happen. This was a surreal moment! I’d spent months researching and formulating my asks, and now it was now “go time!”

If you ask for what you want, you better be ready in case you get it!

I had ideas for the PSA and was happy to draft the script, but it was certainly a major undertaking!Jason and I decided to keep this to under …
