stop snoring, start sleeping
Snoring is an extremely common problem, affecting almost 1/3 of the adult population in the US. Snoring not only affects the sleep of the snorer, but it also affects their bed partner. We all have heard jokes about snoring and we all know a couple that sleeps in separated beds. We have all seen the ads on TV for “snore guards” that promise to “STOP SNORING FOREVER!”
But what isn’t commonly talked about, is how snoring can be the most obvious sign of a more serious issue, Obstructive Sleep Apnea, or OSA. OSA is a condition that refers to your inability to breathe well while sleeping. Good breathing leads to good oxygenation at night, which in turn causes sound sleep. Without good sleep, your body cannot heal itself, release vital hormones, or regulate its metabolism. There are a multitude of health conditions that can be affected and worsened by OSA, such as high blood pressure, diabetes, stroke, depression, even loss of libido.
