DID YOU KNOW that millions of people suffer from sleep disorders?

Sleep disorders are a major problem in the United States. Over 40 million Americans suffer from some kind of chronic disorder that disrupts their sleeping patterns. Even more disturbing is the fact that a whopping 80% go undiagnosed.

A healthy, open and fully functional airway allows us to breathe properly. This is especially important at night in order to get the deep, rejuvenating sleep that our bodies need for optimum health and wellness.

To determine if you are one of the millions affected, it’s important to pay attention to your symptoms. The following are common symptoms for many people who are sleeping with a choked airway:

  • Snoring
  • Gasping for breath in the middle of the night
  • Always feeling tired, even when you get plenty of sleep
  • Waking in the morning with a headache
  • Jaw clenching, grinding and/or jaw pain
  • Having a lack of energy
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Short term memory loss
  • Gaining weight for no apparent reason
  • Increased blood pressure
  • Gastric reflux
  • Sinus issues
  • Awakening multiple times during the night

If any of these symptoms apply to you, we recommend you learn more about the source of your problem before you find yourself dealing with more serious health concerns.

Why treat your sleep disorder?

Everyone has a sleepless night on occasion. However, when it happens on a regular basis for an extended period of time, it can wreak havoc on your health. People with untreated sleep disorders are at a greater risk of developing:

  • Heart Disease
  • Obesity
  • Diabetes
  • Depression and anxiety
  • Stroke
  • Memory loss
  • Cancer
  • Premature aging
  • Earlier onset of Alzheimer’s and Dementia in patients at risk

In addition to these medical conditions, the sleep deprivation that comes with a sleep disorder can impact your safety, job performance, and relationships. For example, the rate of motor vehicle accidents is 15X higher in people with moderate to severe sleep apnea.
