SLEEP BETTER

Better Health Through Better Sleep

Treat your sleep apnea without a CPAP.

If you want to look and feel your best every day, consistently getting a good night’s sleep cannot be beaten. By giving your body the opportunity to rest and rejuvenate, high-quality sleep helps you maintain a healthy weight, stabilizes your mood, boosts focus and productivity, and lowers your risk for serious health issues, like heart disease and diabetes. But if you experience breathing abnormalities during sleep, like snoring and sleep apnea, you likely aren’t getting the deep sleep you need to experience your best physical, psychological, professional, and relational well-being.

Affecting as many as 90 million adults in the US, snoring is a disordered breathing that causes you to breathe out of your mouth instead of your nose. This causes dry mouth (xerostomia), which can cause or accelerate multiple oral health issues, including bad breath (halitosis), tooth decay, periodontitis, mouth sores, and infections. When left untreated, snoring can also contribute to many undesirable and harmful health consequences, including weight gain, moodiness, stress, attention problems, daytime drowsiness, and morning headaches.

Snoring is often a sign of sleep apnea, a serious health condition that causes you to stop breathing multiple times throughout the night while you sleep. Beyond disrupting sleep for you and your bedmate, these halts in breathing mean the cells of your brain and body are deprived of the oxygen they need to function properly. An estimated one in 15 Americans has sleep apnea, with as many as 90% of mild and moderate cases left undiagnosed. When left untreated, sleep apnea significantly increases your risk for weight gain, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, stroke, depression, anxiety, and, in general, a lower quality of living.
