Sleep loss can shorten your lifespan…
The annual golf trip was just two weeks away — the jokes were already flying around. “Bring the earplugs,” they teased. “We’re drawing straws for Mike’s bunk mate”. As good-natured as the teasing was, it was embarrassing for Mike. He knew snoring was common but he also knew his snoring was abnormally loud and irritating. Mike knew he needed some type of snoring remedy.
Not only was he being labeled “The Snorer”, Mike would also routinely wake up extremely tired every morning. Chalking it up to too many late nights, he vowed every morning to get to bed earlier the next night, but would wake up in the morning with the same outcome – exhausted, unmotivated and going through the motions.
It’s all too familiar; everyone has a snoring story to tell. But what may not be familiar to you is that snoring can pose a danger to your health, affect your work, damage and destroy relationships and be the underlying cause of many safety issues. Snoring increases blood pressure and may cause atherosclerosis – hardening of the arteries, which leads to heart disease and all too often a shorter life. CT scans of Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) patients show brain changes similar to those seen in Alzheimers patients.
