Stop Snoring and Treat Sleep Apnea without CPAP

Six Dangers of Snoring that you MUST know

By Dr. Jacques Doueck, member American Academy of Sleep Medicine  

Snoring has been the made fun of and is the brunt of many jokes, but it is no laughing matter. It is estimated that over 50% of adult males and 30% of adult females may be affected by snoring. Snoring has long been a nuisance or, sometimes, comical problem that a spouse brings to a marriage. In reality, snoring and a poor night’s sleep can be a sign of a much greater problem: sleep apnea.

Do you have High Blood Pressure? Are you overweight? There is a strong chance that you Snore and have Sleep Apnea. Sleep Apnea means that while you sleep you STOP BREATHING 15 TO 90 TIMES EVERY HOUR.

Snoring and Sleep Apnea IS SERIOUS. Risks include High Blood Pressure, Stroke, Pre-Diabetes and Diabetes, depression and heart attack. But the good news is there are effective and easy to use devices that your medical insurance or Medicare will cover! Your health will improve with a reduced risk of stroke, high blood pressure, heart attack and even auto accidents.

Danger #1Medical Risks: According to a  recent study loud snorers have;

 67% greater chance of stroke

34% greater chance of heart attack

40% greater chance of hypertension (high blood pressure).

Danger #2Sleep Apnea: Half of the patients that snore have Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA). This means that when you’re asleep you stop breathing from 5 to 100 times every hour. The word “apnea” means “without breath” and can lead to serious medical conditions including death. Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is caused by a blockage of the airway when we sleep. When we lie down the tongue falling back into the throat (due to gravity) along with the relaxation of the soft tissues blocks some, if not all, of the oxygen from entering our body. This can occur hundreds of times a night leading to this deadly condition. Most patients do not know they have sleep apnea which is why more than 93% of women and 82% of men are believed to be undiagnosed.

Danger #3Car Accidents: People who snore have 7 X’s greater chance of car accidents- worse than driving under the influence of alcohol. In fact one study indicates that one in five auto accidents are caused by drowsiness.  200,000 automobile accidents are related to drowsiness every year. Daytime sleepiness affects your work performance and will make you feel tired due to the oxygen starvation to brain cells, tissues and organs.

Danger #4Other Family Members: Snoring affects other family members by preventing them from sleeping. Many times people complain that they are embarrassed to go on group trips/camping trips/family vacation trips. The person that snores may  need a separate hotel room. Snoring is probably the most common reason noted by couples for requesting two master bedrooms.

Danger #5Misdiagnosed Depression: Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) is often misdiagnosed with depression. When people get treated for snoring and sleep apnea the first thing they notice – they are more energetic, sleep better, and are more excited about life. It’s an amazing transformation. This is even more exciting when they can get off their anti-depressant medication.

Danger #6ADD or ADHD in Children: Children with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) may have the opposite affect. While in adults  OSA will make you tired during the day – kids may be hyperactive and be misdiagnosed with ADD or HDAD. The good news is that once the OSA is treated the kids no longer have the symptoms of  their learning disability
