How Smart Is Your Bed?

Snoring is one of those issues that plagues more people than you probably realize. In fact, you may snore yourself and just not know it! If you sleep alone you probably are in the dark on any potential snoring issues. When there’s no one there to stab you in the side because you’re keeping them awake, it’s hard to see you have an issue. There are several causes, and treatments, for snoring. Some of the major causes are being overweight, smoking or drinking heavily before bed, stress and plain old muscle relaxation. You can exercise, scale back on bad habits and do yoga to reduce your stress but it’s a bit hard to combat muscles relaxing. Unless you have super control of your muscles. Then that’s a different story.

When your muscles relax too much your tongue will fall to the back of your throat and the muscles will loosen. This vibration on loose flesh is what causes the sound we’re all to familiar with. Various mouthpieces designed to either push your jaw forward to increase airflow (such as what we talk about in our ZQuiet review) or hold your tongue in place can assist with this issue.

But what else can you do?

As our houses get smarter and smarter, technology is slowly creeping into the bedroom:

After a full day of meetings at CES 2017, I noticed a few trends that could bubble up beyond some of the bigger ones that get a lot of the media’s attention. Roaming around a large hotel ballroom (The Mirage Events Center, actually) during the Pepcom Digital Experience event, I noticed a LOT of individual products, but some of them have coalesced into themes to watch during the year.

Technology hits the bedroom

Humans spend about 1/3 of their life sleeping or trying to sleep, so it’s been interesting to see that products are finally addressing our needs for a better night’s sleep. Companies and products like Smart Nora, the Zeeq Smart Pillow and Sleepace all have different approaches towards alleviating the annoyance of someone snoring (alleviating for the partner, since it probably doesn’t bother you if you’re the snorer). Different approaches are used by some of the products – the Nora device, for example, uses a small device that raises the pillow slightly to get you to move when snoring is detected through its sound sensor. The Zeeq includes speakers (which let you play music to help you get to sleep) that can activate when it detects snoring.

The big company in this space is Sleep Number Bed, which was at the event showing off its new Sleep Number 360 Smart Bed. The entire mattress system includes the anti-snoring approach (the bed adjusts the position when snoring is detected), but also includes a warming feature, biometric sensors and other health data abilities to help customers get their 40 winks in an easier manner.

A bevvy of cold-footed humans are very excited about the warming feature but for snorers, to have a bed that will automatically tilt you to help stop snoring is a great idea. It certainly sounds like something that could be effective, for sure, but it is quite an expensive proposition for a lot of people. If your bed does it for you there’s no need to stab  your partner in the ribs or be concerned that your snoring is shaking the windows and you don’t know it.

While some people might be hesitant to have technology in their beds, others will see it as progressive. There’s no denying that these are all fantastic ideas, but they are going to cost you a pretty penny. Before you get too wrapped up in the idea of buying a smart bed, maybe you should start saving your nickels and dimes. While it might take you a while to save for it, it’ll be that much sweeter when you can afford it.

Battle For The Future Of Sleep: Snore Mouthpieces Vs. The Smart Bed

No matter how you look at it, technology has changed our lives immeasurably over the past 20 years. Just think of it: now, we carry 6-10 ounce devices that have about 50-100 times the computer power that a laptop in 1995 did. I mean, that’s simply amazing (and please, don’t take my “computing power” estimates as fact: I ain’t no computer scientist! 😉 ).

So what does technology do? It solves problems. Or at least it disrupts and creates new problems that can be solved (I hate to go back to cell phones again, but yep, for many people they’ve BECOME a problem).  And what is one of the biggest problems for many people in Western societies? Snoring. Yes, I said it. And yes, it is a little “First World”, but the fact is, snoring STILL affects such a large percentage of the population that it’s almost crazy. I mean, come on! Shouldn’t we have done a little more about this by now?

And did we? Yes. First, we created the mandibular advancing snoring mouthpiece, which remains an extremely effective device, especially with solid entries recently such as the Zquiet, VitalSleep and SnoreRX. Then we adapted and made it better by creating the Tongue Stabilizing Device Mouthpiece, or TSD, an example well represented by the Good Morning Snore Solution. Our ZQuiet review is quite comprehensive, by the way.

But people are always looking for a better, more comfortable way. It simply makes sense, and apparently technology is looking to provide this. So you have a smart phone, right? What about a Smart Bed? Sleep Number thinks it’s got one:

the invention of a bed that automatically moves to adjusts a sleeper’s position when it detects a snoring fit, saving their partner from decamping to the sofa in an attempt to get a good night’s sleep.

The 360 Smart Bed, which can adjust its mattress to fit different body positions, track its owner’s sleeping habits and wake them at the optimum time, can detect the sound of snoring and in response raises the sleeper’s head by a few degrees to clear the airwaves.

Developed by mattress company Sleep Number and due to be put on sale this year, it can also warm up owners’ feet and send data about their sleeping patterns to an app.

It’s an interesting move, for sure. And we applaud Sleep Number for giving it a shot. As we have noted just recently in our post about the Snore Circle, tech companies seem to be going whole hog looking to sell products to help people sleep.

They also have what I would call “creative” ideas about how snoring can be stopped. Now don’t get me wrong: these folks don’t invest millions of dollars in a product that they think is not going to work (or sell, for that matter).

So, let’s jump ahead and propose hypothetically that the Sleep Number 360 does stop your snoring. Great! Fantastic even. The real question, though, is how many people can actually afford the Sleep Number 360. When you look at the snoring mouthpiece market and see that it is rare for a mouthpiece to cost more than $100, and compare it to Sleep Number, which currently runs models anywhere from $1000-3000USD, you can see that this is probably going to be ridiculously unaffordable for all but the richest folks out there.

The key question here for many people will be: Which is more affordable, snoring surgery or the Sleep Number 360? It sounds crazy, but when you consider it is very likely that the costs are similar, maybe it ain’t so bad sticking to a tried and true device that costs less than $125?

Buy ZQuiet: Free Trial Without Coupon Still Provides Discount

When it comes to a jaw advancing snoring mouthpiece, it’s hard to beat ZQuiet. In fact, readers of the Snoring Mouthpiece Review consistently tell us that it is their buyzquietfavorite snoring mouthpiece. The reasons are quite simple:

  1. ZQuiet offers a free trial if you’re thinking about adopting one: Unlike many other mouthpieces out there, ZQuiet does essentially offer a free 30 day trial. Now, it does cost $9.95, but it’s fair to say that this is essentially a shipping cost. Very few mouthpieces will offer this kind of low entry price, which is why skeptical first timers seem to like it so much.
  2. ZQuiet’s Low Price: When you look through the variety of snoring mouthpieces on the market, ZQuiet is easily on of the cheapest available. Again, for first time users that aren’t sure that a mouthpiece will work for them, this is perfection. There are certainly cheaper mouth guards out there, of course, but many of them are cheap China-manufactured garbage, which unfortunately can lead to really bad things like TMJ or jaw pain.
  3. ZQuiet At A Discount: OK, so finding a coupon out there is pretty unlikely for most people. The history ZQuiet has with coupons is actually quite sparse, but if there happens to be an extremely rare seasonal discount, you’re best to jump on it. Unfortunately, these small discounts typically come around times like Black Friday and that’s about it, so if you happen to luck into a ZQuiet coupon, take that offer immediately. It’s likely it will not last!
  4. ZQuiet Works: With its “Living Hinge” technology, this is a uniquely comfortable mouthpiece that has been ordered by well over 500,000 customers in the United States alone. There are few mouth guards with that kind of order flow, and it isn’t just because this company does tend to do a good degree of marketing. It’s also because it works. It’s cheaper than most jaw advancing mouthpieces, is very comfortable, and, I’ll say it again, it works.

Probably about the only downside with ZQuiet for most people is that you have to order it directly. You simply cannot buy ZQuiet at Amazon, and get warranty and the kind of customer service you’re looking for. And while that may change in the future, the likelihood is very low.

Interesting ZQuiet Advocates

One of the more interesting recent champions of the ZQuiet snoring device is a group of folks that actually consist of sporting champions! I am talking about, of pphacourse, The Pro Player Health Alliance, or PPHA, a group of former professional athletes that are “focused on educating others about sleep apnea and sleep in an effort to reduce the number of deaths and adverse health conditions that result from untreated sleep disordered breathing”. So it’s an important goal, and one that these pro players understand considering how important good health has been to their careers. This is also not shocking because the ZQuiet is actually very similar in shape to sporting mouthpieces, which are of course used in most sports.

According to their recent release:

OSA sufferers stop breathing multiple times when they are asleep, resulting in lower night time oxygen levels and poor quality sleep. The loss of oxygen during the night combined with the lack of good sleep can be a dangerous combination. Stroke, high blood pressure, diabetes and heart disease have been linked to OSA.

The message is personal to many of the greats that make up the PPHA team, including Derek Kennard, who played with three teams – the Arizona Cardinals, the New Orleans Saints and the Dallas Cowboys – during his more than 11 years in the NFL.

“The loss of my brother to sleep apnea became a wake-up call for me. I was always tired and looked like it as well and knew I might be at risk. I had a home sleep test and learned that I stopped breathing many times during the night – sometimes for as long as 1 minute and 30 seconds. Treating my sleep apnea has changed my life – it is helping to keep me safe, healthier and living a better quality of life.”

Via: http://www.prweb.com/releases/2016/01/prweb13169152.htm

The PPHA seems to have taken up sleep disordered breathing as a serious cause, and their walk certainly fits their walk:

To tackle these serious health issues and encourage others to make healthy sleep choices, the PPHA is committed to increasing awareness about sleep disordered breathing and offer guidance and recommended solutions that can lead to effective treatment.

Talking with a physician about potential sleep apnea or treating snoring is critical. OSA sufferers, especially middle-aged adults and men, have a 46% increased risk of death, from any cause, compared to those without the sleep condition, says the National Institute of Health. As many as 85% of people with OSA remain undiagnosed.

While snoring is typically a sign of OSA, not everyone that snores has OSA. Snoring affects about 45% of Americans on any given night, and according to Henry Ford Hospital “snoring is a bigger risk factor for stroke and heart attack than smoking, being overweight, or high cholesterol.”

PPHA members have experienced the best diagnostic methods, and have tested and utilized various solutions for sleep apnea and snoring. Now they are sharing this education and experience.

It’s fantastic forward thinking stuff, and something you don’t see that often from professional athletes. See the full post here…

So if you’re looking for a snoring mouthpiece, but are not 100% sure of what you should choose, take a look at the ZQuiet. This mouthpiece has been proven to work for over a half a million Americans, and that number grows every single year.

 

 

The Snoring Mouthpiece Review Issues Blog Post On Humidifiers And Snore RX For Snorers

The Snoring Mouthpiece Review has announced that they have published a new blog post on how humidifiers and snoring mouthpieces like SnoreRX can help snorers. The blog post is titled, “Humidifier: A Great Gift Even For A Snorer,” and explains why a humidifier can be a great gift idea for a friend or family member who snores. By introducing a moderate amount of moisture into the air, a humidifier can help the snorer relax and have a sound sleep that prevents snoring.

Steve Walker, author of the blog post, says, “A humidifier does more than just provide a spa-like ambiance to a room. It’s actually pretty useful to have a humidifier especially during the winter season.”

He adds, “It’s a practical gift because of the many uses of this particular electronic device. Aside from adding moisture in the air, the humidifier can also help relieve symptoms of different allergies, prevent dry skin, prevent babies from falling sick, and prevent snoring.”

According to the article, the moist air provided by the humidifier soothes the tissues at the back of the throat. The humidifier keeps the throat moist and this prevents irritation that is connected with snoring. Overall, humidifiers offer substantial benefits not only for the health of people but also for belongings and the atmosphere. When a humidifier is installed in the home, it not only helps strengthen the immune system, but it also decreases the incidence of nose bleeds by ensuring that the mucous membrane in the nose is moist.

Meanwhile, aside from the humidifiers, snoring can be prevented by snoring mouthpieces that have been well reviewed by The Snoring Mouthpiece Review. One example is the SnoreRX. The SnoreRX is FDA cleared and what makes it distinctive is the “MicroFit” feature. This allows the adjustment of the position of the lower jaw for maximize the person’s comfort and effectiveness.

However, the SnoreRX will have to be customized for each particular user through boil-and-bite technology. This means that it will have to be submerged in boiling water for approximately 18 seconds. The person who will use it will then clamp on it while it is still soft, resulting in a perfect mold for his or her mouth.

The “micro-adjustments” that are allowed to establish a better fit for the user are what make the SnoreRX different from the other snoring mouthpieces. It is the repositioning of the jaw that is one of the primary goals of mandibular adjustment devices (MADs) like the SnoreRX. This will make sure that the throat is free of obstruction, thus preventing snoring and sleep apnea. With its “Posi-Lock” feature, the customized setting will be locked for a particular person.

The SnoreRX is made from medical-grade copolymer and it has been observed that its lifespan is between 12 to 15 months, is which is much longer than the average lifespan of most MADs, which is 4 to 6 months. The above-mentioned blog post also mentions other anti-snoring devices that they have been reviewed aside from the SnoreRX. These include the Good Morning Snore Solutions, SleepTight, and ZQuiet. These are all recommended as possible gifts for family and friends who have a problem with snoring, and possibly sleep apnea.

Sleep apnea is a serious problem because it is characterized by the interruption of the snorer’s sleep when he momentarily stops breathing. This is because the nasal and throat tissues are relaxed during sleep and they may obstruct the airway. For instance, the base of the tongue may fall back into the airway because of gravity while the person is sleeping. This may partially or totally block air flow, which usually causes the person to choke and gasp for air. When this happen, the affected person usually awakes in order to be able to breathe again. This interrupts the person’s sleep several times during the night, resulting in serious health problems.

Those who want to get more details about the SnoreRX and other snoring mouthpieces can visit The Snoring Mouthpiece Review website, or contact them through the phone of via email.

The Snoring Mouthpiece Review Publishes Post On Z Quiet, A Device Designed To Prevent Snoring And Its Complications

The Snoring Mouthpiece Review, which is based in Long Beach, California, has published a new blog post that discusses the causes and complications of snoring and its possible solutions. The blog post is titled, “Snoring: Causes And Complications Of It.” The article points out that it is heavy snoring that people should worry about because something more serious could be going on, such as sleep apnea.

Steve Walker, author of the article, says, “The vibrating nasal tissue is what causes the snoring sound. The more it vibrates, the louder the sound. There are various causes of snoring. In general, it is due to the tissues and muscles in the airway that tend to collapse and block the airway while a person is asleep. But what is more important to know are the potential complications of heavy snoring, such as high blood pressure, stroke, heart disease, and even falling asleep while driving.”

Vibrating nasal tissue is the main reason for the snoring sound. This is caused by the relaxed throat or nasal tissues through which the air goes through while a person is sleeping. When these tissues obstruct the airway, this reduces the amount of air going through the airway or the tissues may totally obstruct air flow so that the body is momentarily without air. Another possible cause of snoring is a genetic anatomic obstruction like large tonsils, a deviated septum, a large neck circumference, and a floppy soft palate.

Snoring begins to have complications when it interferes with the snorer’s breathing while sleeping and/or when it interrupts the bed partner’s ability to get sufficient restful sleep. When the snorer stops breathing while sleeping, this means that the oxygen level for that person decreases and he or she may awaken choking and gasping for air. This prevents the person from getting a good night’s sleep. And those momentary deficiency in oxygen may result into other more serious conditions, such as hypertension, stroke, and heart disease.

Naturally, it would be best for people who notice that they have possible symptoms of sleep apnea to consult with a doctor. And there are devices on the market that can help prevent snoring and sleep apnea. While the usual device prescribed for preventing sleep apnea requires the person to wear a bulky mask, modern snoring mouthpieces don’t require masks, one example of which is the ZQuiet. This is a mandibular adjustment device (MAD) type of snoring mouthpiece.

The ZQuiet has been in recent news and it is different from other MAD mouthpieces because while most of them require the jaws to be closed, with the lower jaw slightly in front of the upper jaw, it is possible for the person to open or close his or her mouth while wearing it. This permits the usual movement of the mouth, including opening and closing, and normal breathing, while keeping the lower jaw slightly in front of the upper jaw. This position of the jaw is what prevents the base of the tongue from falling back and blocking the airway.

However, those who are considering MADs like the ZQuiet, need to know that it is not recommended for those who have jaw problems, moderate to severe sleep apnea, or wear dentures. It may not also be recommended for those who have sensitive teeth or have an overbite. It is important to consult a doctor or dentist about this. For such conditions, it may be advisable to go for a tongue stabilizing device (TSD) like the Good Morning Snore Solution.

It has been observed that the ZQuiet is well suited to people who breathe through their mouth when they sleep. Those who have tried it have stated that it was like “a breathing hole” that opens wide when the mouth opens.

Those who want to learn more about the ZQuiet details on how it can help prevent snoring and help a person avoid its complications can check out The Snoring Mouthpiece Review website, or contact them on the phone of through email.

New Snoring Mouthpieces Review Blog Post Offers Advice To People Suffering From Exhaustion

The Snoring Mouthpiece Review, which is based in Long Beach, California, has published a new blog post that offers advice to people suffering from exhaustion when they wake up in the morning. The article is titled, “Are You Exhausted When You Wake Up In The Morning?” It presents some remedies for people who feel exhausted even after waking up in the morning. It is pointed out that the primary reason is that the person is not getting enough sleep and that it could be even be related to a more serious condition, which is sleep apnea.

Steve Walker, a spokesperson for The Snoring Mouthpiece Review, says, “Sleep apnea actually causes you to stop breathing while sleeping. Your airway gets blocked as your muscles relax during sleep with the result that little to no air gets to your lungs. So, even if you think you’ve slept long enough, you still feel exhausted when you wake up in the morning. This sleep disorder is also the reason why you snore so loud.”

Steve continues, “The condition is indicated by loud snoring that is usually followed by choking noises. And if the brain detects that insufficient oxygen is getting into the body, the person instinctively wakes up to be able to breathe again and this may happen several times during the night. No wonder, you feel exhausted when you wake up in the morning.”

It should be noted that loud snoring does not necessarily mean that a person suffers from sleep apnea. It is loud snoring that is followed by choking or gasping sounds, or silent pauses may likely indicate sleep apnea. It often results into sleep deprivation, which is indicated in the morning as fatigue, unintentional napping, difficulty concentrating, mood swings, and irritability. Other common symptoms include insomnia, feeling tired even after having a full night’s sleep, headaches and migraines, reduced sex drive, nocturia, and loss of memory.

Meanwhile, a solution for snoring is the Good Morning Snore Solution (GMSS). This is a snoring mouthpiece that helps people manage their snoring. It is a Tongue Stabilizing Device (TSD) mouthpiece that is unique when compared to other mouthpieces, which are usually Mandibular Advancement Devices (MADs). The GMSS will work even for people with temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder or those have any type of specialized dental work, such as bridges, dentures, and others.

The GMSS is FDA-cleared and the company that produces it is accredited by the Better Business Bureau. It is comfortable to wear because it is flexible and made of soft material. It is also safe because it is free from BPA. Also, there is no problem about getting the proper size or adjusting it because it is a one size fits all mouthpiece.

There are several reasons why the GMSS is a good snoring solution for many people. First, it is more affordable that most oral appliances, which usually need to be customized by a dentist. Many of these “dentist-only” devices are within the price range of $2000 to $3000. Second, the GMSS has been clinically tested to be effective and safe. Third, the mouthpiece will adjust to the shape of the person’s mouth, in the same way that a pacifier does with a baby, and will not disturb the person’s sleep. Fourth, the GMSS works by controlling the tongue instead of the jaw, which MADs are designed to do. It is, therefore, more effective because the tongue is much more malleable compared to the jaw bone

With these mouthpieces, people who suffer from sleep apnea may not just avoid waking up exhausted in the morning. They may also be able to avoid other serious diseases that have been linked to sleep apnea, such as stroke, cardiovascular disease, hypertension, depression, diabetes, liver problems, and metabolic syndrome.

Of course, it is always a good idea to consult a doctor to really make sure about a person’s condition. People who are interested in the GMSS details and other devices to help stop snoring and sleep apnea may want to check out The Snoring Mouthpiece Review website.

Snoring: From An Engineer’s Point Of View

Snoring is often talked about by doctors. Well, that makes sense. After all, snoring is a health issue that deserves medical attention. That puts doctors in a very good position to impart critical information about snoring. Needless to say, they’re the best people who can help cure it as well.

It’s seldom that we hear engineers talk about snoring. So, when they do, our ears are open.

Haibo Dong is an associate professor of mechanical and aerospace engineering.

Dong and Ph.D. students Junshi Wang and Pan Han are gaining new understanding of the fundamental science behind sleep apnea by using CT scans and MRIs to image the mouth and nose and the full airway – the “windpipe” – during snoring and apnea, and then computer-modeling the actions that cause vibrations of the uvula and obstructions. They are looking for the changes in the shape of the airway during sleep that cause perturbations in airflow. Those perturbations are the vibrations of snoring and the often-resulting breathing difficulties.

(Via: https://news.virginia.edu/content/when-snoring-goes-annoying-dangerous-engineer-studies-sleep-apnea)

Snoring can be treated. Unfortunately, some treatments fail.

“Treatments often fail because there is a knowledge gap of the fundamental science behind the reasons for this health issue,” said Haibo Dong, a University of Virginia associate professor of mechanical and aerospace engineering who specializes in fluid dynamics research.

(Via: https://news.virginia.edu/content/when-snoring-goes-annoying-dangerous-engineer-studies-sleep-apnea)

Understanding how snoring is produced can help bridge the gap. Research that puts together engineers and doctors can hopefully solve that.

If Dong’s team and his research colleagues, including Dr. James Daniero, a head and neck surgeon in UVA’s Department of Otolaryngology, can understand the basic mechanics of sound produced during normal breathing, then perhaps better treatments and longer-term solutions for abnormalities may be possible.

“This work is highly interdisciplinary and involves scientific problems in the fields of biology, physics, physiology and engineering,” Dong said. “By studying biological fluid dynamics, we are trying to predict and eventually control sleep apnea and snoring.”

(Via: https://news.virginia.edu/content/when-snoring-goes-annoying-dangerous-engineer-studies-sleep-apnea)

Read on to see how they’re trying to do it.

Dong has now modeled both normal breathing and the breathing conditions of sleep apnea for people from 8 months to 80 years old. He is identifying the “force reduction,” the point when normal breathing does not provide enough air volume to keep the front and back of the airway open, resulting in collapse.

“With a normal airway, we see a very smooth channel that doesn’t vibrate much, and where there is not much force difference on the airway walls during breathing,” Dong said. “But with sleep apnea, we see fluctuations in force that become bigger and bigger, causing more and more vibration. Eventually the walls come together and cause obstruction.”

This causes a lack of oxygen to the brain after a couple of minutes, triggering a wake-up call. The breathing then becomes normal for a while, until the pattern repeats itself.

“We are looking for the conditions leading up to a threshold, that point where the airway collapses,” Dong said. “Knowing that could lead to more effective treatments to stop this before it happens.”

(Via: https://news.virginia.edu/content/when-snoring-goes-annoying-dangerous-engineer-studies-sleep-apnea)

The research aims to provide pin point accuracy as to when and how normal breathing breaks down This way, we can all understand what causes one to snore.

The research also shows that sleep apnea causes more obstruction and vibration. Understanding when and how these take place can help doctors come up with treatments that work.

The research is something we all can look forward to. After all, who doesn’t want a lasting solution to snoring?

In the meantime, we can look at snoring mouthpieces. We may still be at a lost to understand the basic mechanics of snoring but that shouldn’t stop us from trying to control the annoying sounds that we make while we sleep. Fortunately, there are ways to control and to stop those annoying sounds.

Snoring mouthpieces can help clear the airway passage while you sleep. These are instant fixes to your snoring problem. However, you need to choose one that you feel comfortable in. Before choosing one, there are things to consider. To be sure, get with your doctor first.

Nonetheless, the following snoring mouthpieces are worth considering. The https://snoringmouthpiecereview.org/good-morning-snore-solution is a mouthpiece that you can immediately get a hold of. There’s no need for a doctor’s prescription. If you want an instant fix, you can try it now.

Other snoring mouthpieces worth considering are https://snoringmouthpiecereview.org/sleeptight, https://snoringmouthpiecereview.org/snorerx, and https://snoringmouthpiecereview.org/zquiet. These three options are mandibular adjustment devices (MAD). They can also help control and prevent snoring.

New Snoring Mouthpieces Review Post On Getting A Good Night’s Sleep Released

The Snoring Mouthpiece Review, which is based in Long Beach, California, has recently published a blog post that offers a simple way to get a good night’s sleep. The article is titled, “A Simple Way To A Good Night’s Sleep.” It explores the various ways of preventing snoring in order to allow a person to sleep tight at night.

“While getting a good night’s sleep is important for good health, unfortunately, it’s not easy to get a good night’s sleep,” says Steve Walker, a spokesperson for The Snoring Mouthpiece Review.

He adds, “There will be some nights when your sleep is good and there will be some nights when your sleep is bad. If you’re a snorer, you probably have more nights of bad sleep. If you’re hardly getting any good night’s sleep, you’re going to get sick. And, if your partner says you snore, accept it and decide to do something about it. Don’t even attempt to deny it because the sooner you deal with your snoring, the better it is for your health and your relationship. Keep in mind that sleep apnea is a serious health problem.”

Sleep apnea is a disorder where the breathing of the affected person stops and starts several times during sleep. It causes momentary oxygen deprivation during those times when the person stops breathing and this particular disorder has been linked to stroke, heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, and even depression. It has even been found to be the cause of 38,000 deaths every year.

There are many ways to prevent sleep apnea. One possible solution is the Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) machine. However, the CPAP machine may not be a convenient solution because the person has to wear a mask that will cover the whole face. It is not exactly a comfortable thing to wear while sleeping. That is why people are looking for some other alternative, such as an oral appliance or mouthpiece that fits the mouth comfortably while being effective in preventing snoring and sleep apnea.

One example of a good mouthpiece is the SleepTight. This is a wire-free mouthpiece that was developed by a dentist. Its advantage over the CPAP machine is that it is comfortable to wear and it is less expensive. It is made of thermoplastic and the person who will wear it will just need to put it in boiling water for three minutes. Doing that will soften up the mouthpiece and the wearer can then bite on it to provide a custom impression of the person’s teeth. This custom fit can be retained by simply submerging the mouthpiece in cold water, and the mouthpiece can now be worn every night with the assurance that it fits the wearer’ mouth perfectly.

Another disadvantage of snoring is that it disturbs the snorer’s partner. Aside from the snorer not having a good night’s sleep, it is likely that the person’s partner will not have a good night’s sleep either, unless he or she decides to sleep somewhere else. Thus, snoring may not just be damaging to the person’s health, it may also damage a relationship.

And with the availability of mandibular advancement devices (MADs) like SleepTight, there’s really no reason to endure the inconvenience of snoring. It may be understandable that people were reluctant to wear such kind of oral appliances before because the first MADs had wires and were uncomfortable to wear. All of that are now just part of the past because modern mouthpieces are now available and can easily be ordered without a prescription.

The Snoring Mouthpiece Review offers helpful content on mouthpieces that can alleviate snoring and prevent sleep apnea, offering unbiased assessments of such devices that have recently come out in the market. They often published articles that people with snoring problems can use to better understand their condition and perhaps find a way to solve it.

Those who are interested in a good site offering advice on ways to stop snoring and sleep apnea can visit The Snoring Mouthpiece Review website.

Zany Ways To Stop Snoring

You’ll do anything to stop snoring. Who wouldn’t? If you’re losing sleep with your partner’s snoring or vice versa, the two of you would really have to do something about it. If not, both of you are going to go nuts. Unless you’re Iron Man who can function pretty well without sleep, then you’re okay. But then, Iron Man is dead. In retrospect, he probably needed his sleep as well.

Snoring is one of the common reasons why people can’t sleep. It gets in the way for both the snorer and the non snorer.

Snoring is a buzz kill, a sleep robber and maybe an indicator of serious health issues, including the obstructive sleep apnea that can lead to heart disease.

There are a lot of Americans who snore. As a matter of fact, millions of Americans snore.

Some 90 million American adults snore, according to sleepfoundation.org, and many could find relief with general health solutions.

The Mayo Clinic recommends getting 7-8 hours of sleep a night if you snore, for example, or losing weight since overweight people can have extra throat tissues that contribute to snoring.

It is definitely a good idea to get 7-8 hours of sleep every single day. What if the person beside you is the snorer and you can’t even get an hour of sleep?

It wouldn’t hurt to lose some weight to see if it can help stop the snoring but what if it can’t? Well, you can always try these zany ways to stop snoring.

One zany way to stop snoring is to use a tennis ball.

Lying on your back when you sleep puts greater pressure on your throat, so shifting to your side may work to quiet loud snoring, Dr. M. Safwan Badr, president of the American Academy of Sleep Medicine, told Huffington Post. To improve your odds of actually staying asleep on your side, sew a tennis ball into the front pocket of an old t-shirt, then wear the shirt backwards to bed. This should make it super uncomfortable to lie on your back once you drift off. Once you’ve adjusted to the new sleep position (and stopped snoring), you can ditch the uncomfy shirt.

That’s just one zany way to stop snoring.  You can also try sleeping with a longer pillow.

According to Reader’s Digest, a full-length body pillow can help you adjust to sleeping on your side.

Dr. Gene Sambataro, who is a dentist, also recommends tongue aerobics.

Sounds a little odd, and you may not want an audience, but strengthening your tongue and the facial muscles you use to chew and swallow with exercises known as “myofunctional therapy” can work wonders with snoring, according to Sambataro. “Muscle weakness within the tongue, mouth, and upper throat may lead to snoring and obstructive sleep apnea,” he says.

Another zany way to stop snoring is to change your pillows.

No, you’re not trying to re-decorate the snoring away. Instead, you’re after the allergens in your bedroom and in your pillow that may contribute to snoring. “If you feel fine during the day but obstructed at night, these things may be contributing to your snoring,” Sambataro says. “Everyone should evaluate whether your pillows are creating some nasal congestion due to a reaction to the material.”

You can also try popping a bit of peppermint. This zany trick is recommended by Reader’s Digest (RD). It might just help.

A drop or two of peppermint oil rubbed around your nose may be able to open nasal passages, and peppermint mouthwash could shrink throat tissue that contributes to snoring, according to RD.

Mixing mint into your humidifier is not exactly zany but it’s definitely worth a try.

If you have the option to use a humidifier at night, bump your odds of opening your nasal passages by adding a few drops of peppermint oil to the water, RD suggested.

Using a nose cone is also one zany way to stop snoring.

Sambataro also suggests nose cones you place in each nostril to expand it. “This technique has a similar effect as strips, without the irritation of removing them in the morning,” he notes.

Lastly, Dr. Sambataro recommends nasal sprays.

With regular use, sprays will help get rid of the bacteria and fungus that produce mucous and eventually obstruct the nasal airway, Sambataro noted.

These zany ways could work to stop snoring. They’re worth a try but if you want a sure way to stop snoring, then why not use an oral device like https://snoringmouthpiecereview.org/zquiet? Zquiet is a mandibular advancement device that can help keep your airway passage clear of any obstruction.

Snoring Can Speed Up Aging

Snoring affects your health. It affects it in a very bad way. There’s nothing good about snoring. For starters, you’re going to have a lot of cranky days ahead if your partner is a snorer. There’s just no way you’re going to get any sleep.

Snoring may be one of the most annoying things to hear at night. It can be your father, brother, sister a friend during a night out or you yourself. But aside from the noise, there is another reason to try to avoid snoring.

There’s more to snoring than just the noise that irritates everybody. If you or your partner snores or you know someone who is plagued with this nocturnal problem, it’s time to take action. Snoring can speed up the aging process.

A new study, published in the journal Sleep, shows that sleep-disordered breathing, such as obstructive sleep apnea, could speed up aging. Snoring is among the common warning signs of this health problem.

Sleep-disordered breathing occurs as abnormalities of respiration during sleep due to less blood oxygen saturation and brief arousals. In the U.S., nearly 30 million adults are estimated to have obstructive sleep apnea.

The study shows that sleep-disordered breathing could make a person’s body 215 days older than its proper age. Sleep disruption was also associated to 321 days of age acceleration.

That means you’re going to be about 7 months older than your actual age. Sure, there is no easy way to slow down the aging process but moving forward 7 months your actual age is very, very fast. That’s just for sleep-disordered breathing.

Unfortunately, sleep disruption speeds up the aging process a lot faster than that. That’s very alarming because you don’t have to be snorer to suffer from sleep disruption. As a partner of a snorer, you’re bound to suffer from sleep disruption as well. No amount of anti-aging cream can help you get back the 10 months of accelerated aging that comes with sleep-disruption.

If you find that hard to believe, take a look at below what a doctor has to say about it.

“People’s biological age might not be the same as their chronological age,” Xiaoyu Li, lead author of the study and a postdoctoral research fellow at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health in Boston, said in a statement. “Our data provide biological evidence supporting adverse physiological and health effects of untreated sleep-disordered breathing.”

Here are the highlights of the study.

For the study, the researchers analyzed the health of 622 adults. The team checked the participants’ blood DNA methylation and sleep.

Results show that women tend to experience faster biological aging linked to sleep-disordered breathing than men. But the researchers suggested further study focused on this area is needed.

“While women are often considered to be at lower risk for health outcomes related to sleep-disordered breathing, our findings suggest increased biological susceptibility,” Li said.

They also aim to conduct another research to determine if available treatments could help reduce epigenetic age acceleration.

To date, sleep-disordered breathing is commonly left undiagnosed and undertreated. But Li said understanding how sleep-disordered breathing affects age could lead to new anti-aging interventions and promote longevity.

So, if you know someone who snores or maybe you’re the one who snores, get help now. You wouldn’t want your body to age a lot faster than your chronological age, would you?

If snoring is becoming a problem for you and you’re worried about the early aging effect of it on your body, why not try some of the anti-snoring mouthpieces?

There are four anti-snoring mouthpieces that you can look into. The first of which is the ZQuiet. This anti-snoring mouthpiece is unique because it allows your mouth to move normally. As weird as it may sound, you can wear it while you’re awake. Although you don’t really snore when you’re awake but then you can drink water and go right back to sleep without having to worry about taking it off and putting it on again.

The second anti-snoring mouthpiece is the Good Morning Snore Solution. This mouthpiece is soft and flexible. What’s unique about it is that it’s available over the counter.

If you want a mouthpiece that’s going to fit perfectly, try out SnoreRX. It’s known for their “MicroFit” feature that makes it very comfortable to wear.

The fourth anti-snoring mouthpiece you can look into is Sleeptight. This particular mouthpiece can help prevent sleep disruption for both you and your snoring partner. That can really help slow down the aging process that comes with sleep disruption.
