Sleep Disorders In Teens Increase With Late-Night Phone Use

Tags

Like it or not, technology dominates modern life. Rarely can you see an individual without a smartphone in hand. People these days live a more active life in the virtual world than they do in real life. While we relish all the perks that the World Wide Web offers, it also has many disadvantages that mainly impact your health in a negative light. First off, the radiation emitted by many of these modern gadgets is not good for your health. Then, smartphone and smart gadget use can be highly addicting.

This obsession with technology has been going on for a while now. Back then, parents were often worried about young kids who are obsessed with video games. But today, they can do virtually everything they want with a smartphone in hand. You can text and call family and friends any time of the day. You can also play any game you want as long as you can download it from the app store and your phone has enough memory for it. Social media is the biggest temptation of all. You can get lost in it 24/7 and not feel sleepy at all.

TEENAGERS’ LATE-NIGHT mobile phone use is harming their mental health and sleeping patterns, according to a new study.

The study of 1,100 students aged 13 to 16 in Australia found that late-night mobile phone use was directly linked to poor sleep quality, which led to poorer mental health outcomes, reduced coping and lowered self-esteem.

Lead researcher Lynette Vernon, of Murdoch University in Perth, said the findings showed a need for curfews around the use of mobile phones in bedrooms.

A major factor as to why many people, even young kids, get hooked to technology and their health ultimately suffers is because they have access to it at home or even outside the house. Even kids as young as 10-13 years old now own their personal smartphones. So, it’s no longer surprising that people with sleep issues are rising because our lifestyle is mainly to blame. We live in a tech-crazed world that can’t survive a day without fiddling with our smartphones or logging into our various social media accounts.

The study of 1,101 students aged between 13 and 16 years old, is thought to be the first to prove the direct link between higher mobile phone use and a rise in externalizing behaviour – such as aggression – decreased self-esteem and coping skills.

However, using mobile phones at night was not “significantly associated” with a change in depressed mood, according to the study paper.

Those behind the research suggested it could be because depressed adolescents may stop using their phones as much to contact friends. This could mean night-time use of other technology – such as devices to access social media – could be more closely linked to poor sleep and depression, they said.

Social media gave new meaning to our lives. However, you can’t deny that while it is fun to connect and reconnect with old and new friends online, it can take your time away from more important life responsibilities, even from your much-needed sleep. Unfortunately, teens suffer the most because they often don’t understand yet the implications of this new tech obsession and how their health ultimately suffers in the end.

These days, teachers often face classrooms filled with yawning students who stayed up late snapping selfies or playing online games.

For children and teens, using cell phones, tablets and computers at night is associated with losing sleep time and sleep quality, new research finds. Even children who don’t use their phones or the other technologies littering their bedrooms at night are losing shut-eye and becoming prone to daylight sleepiness, the analysis published today in JAMA Pediatrics finds.

The analysis found “a consistent pattern of effect across a wide range of countries and settings,” said Dr. Ben Carter, lead author and a senior lecturer in biostatistics at King’s College London.

It is the parents’ responsibility to look after their child’s health and well-being even if it means imposing a curfew on their tech use. If you just let kids use technology whenever they want to, they will eventually suffer from poor sleep quality, not get enough sleep and suffer from excessive daytime sleepiness that may pull their grades down and affect how much they participate in class.

Aside from affecting school performance, kids and teens who stay up late at night because of their smartphone use suffer from a shift in their circadian rhythm that also affects various restorative biological processes that often take place at night in your sleep. Always remember that sleep is an important factor in the normal growth and development of children, so make sure they sleep well at night and away from these addictive gadgets as much as possible.

Got A Sleeping Problem? Get Checked At A Sleep Clinic

Tags

The average human being these days is stretched out too thin because of numerous interests and commitments they pursue in their daily life. You often sacrifice your sleep just to make sure everything is finished before hitting the sack, so you don’t panic the following day. You are not alone. A big majority of Americans lie in bed at night with eyes still wide open because simply counting sheep doesn’t work anymore. Sleep deprivation is actually a double-edged sword that not only leaves you feeling fatigued upon arising but affects your school or work performance too because your brain did not get the rest it badly needs the night before.

If sleeping (or the lack of it) is a big issue in your life, don’t just suffer in silence. Get medical help because more often than not, sleeping issues are health issues too. There are numerous sleep disorders that may affect the quality and quantity of your sleep and it may not always be what you think it is. The best recourse is to get yourself tested at a sleep clinic because they have doctors that specialize on sleep itself and are equipped with the latest sleep technologies that can get to the root of your problem/s in no time.

Doctor Irshaad Ebrahim of the Dubai-based London Sleep Centre describes the number of current sleep disorders as “an epidemic”.

“It’s so much more important than what’s being reported in the press: lifestyle, pace of work, demands of technology, screen use – they are harming our sleep/wake cycle.”

The number of sleep clinics in the UAE are on the rise, as are do-it-yourself responses such as sleep treatments at luxury hotels and online apps for managing one’s sleep cycle. “It is a response to demand,” says Ebrahim, “just the number of people seeking help”.

According to Elizabeth Graf, a clinical psychologist at a private clinic in New York, “research continues to show the emotional and physical benefits of sleep”.

Studies have linked lack of sleep to poor performance at work, depression and overall health, including links to cancer. It is not uncommon for studies to speak about the “public health crisis” of lack of sleep, in which billions of dirhams are spent tackling the secondary effects of poor slumber. Others point to its effect on the economy, and even its role in disasters such as the nuclear meltdowns at Three Mile Island and Chernobyl.

Although still considered as a novel concept by many, getting checked at sleep clinic is actually growing in popularity these days as technology and modern living continue to mess up your sleep cycle. There are generally two types of people who visit sleep clinics. The first are individuals who understand they have severe sleeping issues and are raring to get treated while there are those who are not only apprehensive but generally fearful of the unknown (in this case, it’s the sleeping lab itself).

Screening for OSA typically involves questionnaires about sleep that often require observations from a bed partner. They are sometimes supplemented with overnight blood oxygen readings from a finger pulse oximeter. Testing to confirm the diagnosis of OSA has typically relied upon polysomnography tests — which record your brain waves, blood oxygen level, heart rate, breathing and leg movements during sleep — although home testing kits are becoming more widely used.

You’d be surprised at how big the sleep industry has become. Gone were the days when a patient suffering from sleep issues just gets prescribed with a sleeping pill or two by their GPs to helps them sleep better at night. Today, there are countless technologies like this:  https://snoring.mouthpiece.report/good-morning-snore-solution that help screen and diagnose patients who get tested in actual sleep clinics. Since many of these sleep disorders now have a name, there are specific gadgets you can also use to address them and prevent you from becoming dependent on sleeping pills alone.

Sleep is big business in this country. The amount Americans spend on drugs and devices to achieve sleep is expected to reach over $80 billion in the next 3 years. The sleep apnea device market alone is a roughly $5 billion dollar industry. But not all the numbers are rosy, especially for sleep clinics which, according to the AASM, peaked at roughly 2,500 accredited centers in 2014. A possible reason for this is the emergence of at-home testing kits that cost around $150 to $250. In contrast, lab-based sleep tests at a typical sleep center usually cost about 3 to 5 times that. A study published this week in the Annals of Internal Medicine found that at-home testing may be as good as laboratory testing in diagnosing OSA. (STAT covered that study, and its implications for the sleep testing market, nicely.) Now fewer insurance companies are covering laboratory-based testing but more are considering covering at-home testing. In short, sleep centers are facing tough times.

This is not to say that the AASM (which accredits sleep centers) is not invested in the proper diagnosis and treatment of those with sleep disorders. They are. But it does raise questions: should the financial status of the sleep centers they accredit be taken into consideration when the AASM takes issue with the USPTF findings? And what should we make of their push to screen everyone at increased risk of developing OSA, even if they don’t have sleep-related symptoms?

While more and more sleep clinics are opening all over the world, they still aren’t enough to accommodate the growing number of individuals suffering from numerous sleep disorders. Patients often stay at these sleep clinics for the night and not all the time these check-ups are covered by the government or medical insurance. However, those people who are really in dire need of medical intervention for their sleep woes won’t mind shelling out the money to get tested, so they can start treatment as soon as possible. A night at a sleep clinic is often enough to get the needed baseline data before getting the necessary treatment.

Exercises For Sleep Apnea Can Help

Tags

People often think of exercise as a punishment for overeating, when in reality our body needs exercise the most aside from eating a balanced diet. For active people, exercise is already a part of their daily routine and they don’t feel obligated to do it. But for the rest who are contentedly living their sedentary lifestyle, they think of exercise as a burden that they aren’t thrilled about doing at all or spare a minute of their precious time.

Exercise is not only a must for overweight individuals who badly need to get rid of all traces of excess fats hanging off their bodies but for people who are having sleeping problems too.

Sleep disorders like sleep apnea make it impossible for both the snorer and the partner to sleep at night because of the loud snoring sound, a common symptom of sleep apnea. However, it helps to know that not all snorers do actually have sleep apnea, so it’s better to get tested at a sleep clinic to confirm. Obesity worsens sleep apnea and puts you at higher risk of various cardiovascular diseases. It’s actually the number one factor that predisposes you to the obstructive type of sleep apnea. Hence, losing at least 10% of your body weight improves sleep apnea as well as prevents daytime sleepiness.

More than 100 million Americans have insomnia, and a host of studies and experts say exercise could remedy it.

Multiple studies indicate that physical activity can help you get to sleep faster and stay asleep longer without the risks associated with sleeping pills. Exercise can also help with sleep apnea, a dangerous disorder than can cause a person to temporarily stop breathing at night.

One study showed that exercise alone led to a 25 percent reduction in sleep apnea symptoms over a three-month period.

Disturbed sleep can do more than just leave you groggy in the morning. It’s a key risk factor for diseases and conditions like stroke, heart attack, high blood pressure, diabetes and obesity.

Doctors recommend that people get two-and-a-half hours of aerobic exercise every week. Individuals should also incorporate strength and condition exercises to their routines.

(Via: http://www.wtoc.com/story/35564903/exercise-can-fight-insomnia-sleep-apnea)

Treating sleep apnea isn’t an easy thing to do even with the help of modern medicine, which is why having more options in managing it is better and increases your chances of being able to live a normal life at the very least. You also have higher chances of enjoying deep sleep at night that not only makes you feel light and refreshed the next day but enhances memory and learning too.

One study conducted by Rush University clinical psychologist Kelly Glazer Baron found older women suffering from insomnia saw significant results after exercising, including improved sleep, more energy and less depression, CNN reported.

Exercise is also beneficial for those suffering sleep apnea, a condition that causes people to temporarily stop breathing while they sleep, as well as those suffering with restless-leg syndrome, which causes the legs or other parts of the body to itch, burn or move involuntary, according to CNN.

(Via: http://www.wokv.com/news/health-med-fit-science/experts-advise-single-healthiest-way-sleep-better/v7hm80on1jPOrt9dVoapyM/)

The experts have spoken and confirmed what we knew all along. Exercise is a great way to say goodbye to long sleepless nights caused by sleep apnea as well as improve your overall physical appearance. Aside from that, exercising also reduces insomnia as well as prevents you from waking up too early and helps you fall asleep without difficulty. A prime sleep apnea mouthpiece is here: https://snoring.mouthpiece.report/snorerx

So, what are you waiting for? If you’re guilty of making excuses on why you put off exercising over and over again, it’s now high time to get up and start moving around especially if you are now suffering from sleep apnea. Sleep health affects us greatly, so don’t put your health or safety at risk with those breathing pauses at night and hit the gym or the road to not only look good but feel good too.

Good Health Equals Better Sleep..

During the day, your schedule is often jam-packed with various activities that you pursue to get ahead in life. It can leave you exhausted at the end of the day and you long for the comfort of your bed as you drift off the sleep and rest your tired and aching mind and body. Sleep deprivation actually puts you at higher risk of various medical conditions, so make sure you get that well-deserved snooze when everything has been said and done during the day.

Normally, our body clock tells us to wake up when the sun is up and to sleep when the moon has taken the place of the sun up in the sky. However, modern living has significantly messed up your circadian rhythm and you end up tossing and turning until the wee hours of the morning. Modern technology is mainly to blame like cable TV and smartphones. As a result, you sport that dark under eye circles that aren’t just ugly to look and the unceasing feeling of exhaustion and irritability common among most night owls.

The University of Bonn in Germany conducted a study that demonstrates that one bad’s night sleep will mean your heart needs to work 10% harder the next day.

Why? This is because a one night of disturbed sleep ups your heart rate and blood pressure and causes your body to release cortisol (the same hormone produced when you’re stressed, too.)

The man behind the study, Dr Daniel Kuetting, was quoted by The Telegraph saying: ‘For the first time, we have shown that short-term sleep deprivation in the context of 24-hour shifts can lead to a significant increase in cardiac contractility, blood pressure and heart rate.’
‘The study was designed to investigate real-life work-related sleep deprivation. As people continue to work longer hours or work at more than one job to make ends meet, it is critical to investigate the detrimental effects of too much work and not enough sleep.’

(Via: http://www.marieclaire.co.uk/life/bad-sleep-health-effects-510734)

Doctors say that your health improves when you sleep better and vice-versa. While the exact ideal sleeping hours vary from person to person, experts suggest sleeping for at least eight hours each night allows your body to rest and recharge for what lies ahead the following day.

Sleep has been a hot topic over the past few years, and with good reason: According to the National Institute of Health, more than one-third of adults don’t get the recommended 7 to 8 hours of sleep per night, and evidence shows that even children and adolescents sleep less than needed. Most people already know that not getting enough sleep has all types of horrible side effects like puffy eyes, memory loss, and overall grogginess, but what if sleep deprivation is also the reason you reach for a slice of pizza instead of a kale salad?

While it’s been previously thought that the body craves unhealthy snacks for a quick burst of energy to stay awake and alert when your body is tired, new research presented at the Cognitive Neuroscience Society’s annual meeting in San Francisco shows that sleep deprivation actually increases the brain’s sensitivity to food smells. A preliminary study conducted by Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine in Chicago explains that participants who slept only four hours showed greater brain activity in response to food smells, like potato chips and doughnuts, compared to when they’d slept a full eight hours.

(Via: http://www.rd.com/health/healthy-eating/lack-of-sleep-and-food-cravings/)

Your physical and mental health improves with enough sleep daily. Sleep helps your brain work better and aid in the formation of new pathways, so learning and retaining information becomes natural to you. No wonder you feel alert and refreshed after a good night’s sleep but feel drowsy and inattentive when you constantly pull all-nighters. Snoring, meanwhile, can also be a pain. Something like the VitalSleep can help (https://snoring.mouthpiece.report/vitalsleep).

Many of your body’s organs and systems also function efficiently with enough sleep. You are less likely to feel a dip in energy throughout the day and will often be more productive too. Hence, it is important for drivers or people operating machinery to get enough sleep or risk getting hurt or injured in the process. It’s easy to see how your health improves when you sleep better and the other way around. Sleeping is nature’s way of telling you to pull all your cares aside for now and let your body rest for a while to ready itself for next day’s battle.

6 Effective Ways to Stop Snoring

Tags

Snoring is not immediately deadly, without a doubt, but it does get annoying when your spouse or any family member snores so loud that you can barely get enough sleep. Fortunately, there are ways in which one can stop snoring. Add a dose of dedication and persistence when learning these techniques, and you might just be able beat this snoring thing forever.

Kill The Cause

One way on how to stop snoring is to avoid the key elements that induce the condition. Prior to hitting the sack, you should avoid eating rich foods or drinking alcoholic beverages. Sleeping pills are also not recommended (and to be frank, they’re rarely good for non-snorers, either). If you are required to take any sort of medication, consult your physician to find out if it may be part of the cause for your snoring. In some instances, a drug you are consuming may further worsen your sleeping condition.

So why is this the case? Alcoholic beverages, sleeping pills and other sedatives soothe your throat muscles and in turn narrow the air passages. Meanwhile, big meals and rich foods can restrict your air passages by applying pressure on your diaphragm.

Decongestants?

Another way on to solve the snoring issue, at least short term, is to take decongestants or antihistamines. Although efficacy varies from one taker to another, these medications do combat nasal congestion, which is another contributing factor of snoring. Take these drugs only on a short-term basis, however, particularly if your  snoring is attributed by a cold or allergy. Long-term use of these drugs may be life threatening, and certainly this is usually just a band-aid solution, and nothing more.

You can also try gargling with a peppermint solution to minimize the overall lining on your throat and nasal cavity. This is particularly effective if the condition is identified as sporadic and is only promoted during colds or allergies.

What Are You Sleeping On?

Another tip on to stop snoring is to change bed sheets and pillowcases very regularly. You’d be surprised how often people will let their bed sheets and pillowcases “slip”, so to speak. This can lead to accumulation of allergens that can irritate the nasal cavity. You can definitely do a lot to alleviate nasal irritation by regularly changing bedding as well as vacuuming floors and curtains.

Nasal Strips In The House

Nasal strips are very effective for snorers and people who have somewhat severe nasal congestion. Try taping your nose with these specialized strips. You can find these products in your local pharmacy, or online, of course. Whereas they are not the most visually appealing solution, they do work, and work quite well for a lot of users.

And The Hardest One…

Yep, you knew we were going to go there. Regular exercise is also an effective treatment on how to stop snoring. Make it a habit to exercise at least 10 minutes a day to stop snoring and achieve optimal health.

Restoring Sleepless Nights with Anti-Snore Pillows

Tags

Thousands, if not millions, of people can be classified under what society has labeled as snorers. If you are reading this article, you are most likely one of them, or perhaps you know someone who is. Regardless of the circumstances, snoring is a sleep condition that is not really a life-threatening one. However, as it remains unresolved, your roommates or bedmate will suffer the consequences of this annoying and harsh ailment.

Prior to looking at a major devices available on the market, the snoring pillow, let us first tackle what brought about the need for these contraptions. Snoring is induced when breathing airways become constricted while asleep. As a result, the nasal and throat tissues vibrate and thus a loud sound is produced, as rushing air passes through the airways. Constrictions may also be sourced from the nasal cavity and can be entailed from a diversity of physiological conditions.

Now, how can a soft and cushy pillow be of any assistance during this situation? Basically, a snoring pillow is not anything like your regular pillow. A snoring pillow is specifically designed to impede snoring from occurring by maintaining a rectified sleeping position that prevents the mechanism from commencing. A snoring pillow maintains your head and spine in an aligned position, neglecting the sleeping position you are most comfortable with. Specialized anti-snore pillows also keep the snorer’s chin up and the jaw on an anterior position. By keeping your head, neck and jaw area in the proper placement while sleeping you can reduce a variety of physiologic causes for constricted air passageways and, concurrently snoring.

So who are the benefactors of snoring pillows? Sleep apnea as well as other severe underlying medical conditions may lead to snoring. It is most ideal to consult with a doctor regarding moderate to serious degrees of snoring or snoring that is associated with other signs or symptoms in order to diagnose the condition prior endeavoring any solutions and treatments with snoring pillows. Individuals who snore only as an outcome of weak sleep placement of the neck and head may experience positive effects from the use of an anti-snoring pillow.

So are anti-snoring pillows really worth your money? For an inexpensive price, snore pillows are great to try out for louder snoring dilemmas. What many newbie shoppers are unaware of regarding anti-snore pillows is that they also improve quality of sleep. Aside from killing the apnea, these clever contraptions are responsible for inducing a more relaxed state of sleep. Check our recommended pillow out here.

Snoring Mouthpiece Title Fight – Jaw Advancing Vs. Tongue Retaining

Tags

mouthpiece-showdown

If you’ve decided that a stop snoring mouthpiece is for you, this article will help you make a decision as to which TYPE suits you best, and help you avoid the pitfalls of selecting the wrong type of snoring mouthguard. So let’s look at the match-up, shall we?

In This Corner… The Longtime Champion, Jaw Advancer Jones!

Hey! We’re talking snoring mouthpieces here. Please excuse me if I attempt to glam-up a pretty dull subject!

So, ahem, with Jaw Advancers (or if you’re focused on using words very few people actually use, Mandibular advancing mouthpieces), you’re generally talking about the majority of mouthpieces that are available on the market today. I’m of course talking about the VitalSleep, ZQuiet, as well as about a billion other cheap-o alternatives you can beat up your mouth with that are available at Amazon, and other fine stores.

These devices focus on holding your jaw either forward, or in place (so it can’t slip backwards), the idea being that for some snorers, this will work to alleviate the blockage that causes snoring. People have been using these for probably about 20 years now, and some people swear by them.

Weaknesses

Notice that I said “some snorers”? This is very true. Not ALL snorers can benefit from a Jaw Advancing mouthpiece. They also have a few downsides that you’ll definitely want to consider before you back up the truck and buy one:

  • Jaw advancers tend to be a lot less comfortable than the tongue retaining kind.
  • They can induce the gag reflex in some people. Which is not fun. Not fun at all.
  • They encourage a “bite down” solution, which can sometimes actually stress a lot of people out, and keep you from relaxing and getting the full night’s sleep you’re looking for.
  • These tend to create tension on your facial muscles, which bothers some people, but not others.
  • Denture wearers just can’t use them. Full stop.
  • Rare cases have reported jaw alignment problems, over or underbite as well as pain.

Now I know that list looks pretty bad. But remember that these are things that can *sometimes* happen, but definitely are a minority situation. The track record of the Jaw Advancer is also much more lengthy, as I said above, as these things have been on the market for years. The difference is that your VitalSleep as an example, is about a million times more comfortable than something you bought at a KMart 20 years ago.

Things get better with time, and without a doubt, the Jaw Advancer continues to improve.

And In This Corner… The Challenger, Tongue Retaining Turner!

With Tongue Retainers (as I’ll call them here), there is some innovation coming to play. What the inventors of Tongue Retaining Mouthpieces like the Good Morning Snore Solution did was take a look at the list of Jaw Advancer weaknesses above, and decided to make something better. Something with less rigidity, more comfort, and just straight up more effectiveness. Then, they got some biologists, doctors and a friendly neighborhood engineer together for a bit of a party**. The result was a sleeker, better mouthpiece that more people could use to stop snoring.

The great advantage of the tongue retaining mouthpiece is definitely its comfort – both for the short, and LONG term. This is key. Putting something foreign in one’s mouth is something a lot of people are really squeamish about (believe me, I was one of them!), so comfort is a major, major concern for most people. These do take a few days to get used to, but once you do, they work.

Wearing a tongue retaining mouthpiece is easier because you’re NOT clenching your jaw. As a result, you can relax easier, and basically get the sleep that you’re looking for.

Another strength is that these mouthpieces tend to work for more “types of snorers”. As in, if we were to say that Jaw Advancers work for 65% of snorers, then Tongue Retainers easily work for 90%. It really is that much of a difference. This is because most cases of snoring are about blockage created by the tongue – NOT the jaw!

So, most snorers simply benefit more from a well positioned tongue as opposed to a well positioned jaw.

And finally, denture wearers can use a tongue retaining mouthpiece with no problem. No problem at all.

Weaknesses

Although Tongue Retainers are generally a lot easier to use than Jaw Advancers, there are some issues:

  • They’re just not very available… Simply put, outside of the Good Morning Snore Solution, there just are NOT a lot of other competing products out there. With the Jaw Advancer, you could probably select from about 20 different mouthpieces and pay anywhere between $15 and $100.
  • A little pricier – Hey, it’s supply and demand. Unfortunately, there aren’t a lot of tongue retaining mouthpiece manufacturers out there, so they tend to be more expensive than the Jaw Advancing kind.
  • Slippery when wet… The first time I used the GMSS, I woke up with, uh, more drool on me than I expected. A lot more. But after about a week, this “spit reflex” (???) issue, pardon the pun, dried up nicely.

Decision Goes To: Tongue Retaining Turner

Yep, in terms of overall effectiveness and comfort, the “new” challenger is really the best solution. Although the “old standby” does work well for a lot of people, it really is hard to beat the tongue retaining stop snoring mouthpiece.

Finding the Best Type of Stop Snoring Pillow

Snoring has perpetually wreaked havoc on households and families, affecting millions of people worldwide. While your snores may not really bother you, your roommates or family members probably have something else in mind. Luckily, these days, stopping those tedious and loud sounds can be helped with a simple, soft and cushy stop snoring pillow.

A stop snoring pillow is specifically designed to eliminate or, at the very least, reduce the intensities and frequencies of snoring attacks. It is the perfect solution for snorers who wish to correct this particular condition yet is unable to seek for other viable solutions due to preferences, beliefs or budget limitations. Since stop snoring pillows are commonplace in any bedroom and cost only a few dollars, it does not really pain you to try out this method of relief.

But which one do you purchase? Unfortunately, stop snoring pillows come in all sorts, designs and brands, many of which are pitched to be the perfect one for snorers. In addition, if you are a first-time buyer of these items, you can easily get overwhelmed and daunted with the vast selection of stop-snoring pillows. Avoid being sweet talked by professional salespersons by familiarizing yourself with these types of pillows for snoring.

The first contender is Blackstone Pillow. Nominated as the world’s coziest and effective stop snoring pillow by consumers, this product features a recessed-core support that rocks the head, and raises and aligns it by the spine to widen narrowed passageways. It elevates the chin remotely from the chest to accomplish effective snore minimization. The pillow is also deemed to support in reducing or treating headaches, neck pain as well as shoulder discomforts the individual may be experiencing.

Another well-known pillow for snoring is the SnoreLess Pillow(It also happens to be one of the best snoring pillows I’ve tried!) Engineered with an augmented head and neck roll, this one will place your head in such a position where in the throat widens to enable greater flow of air into the airways. An extra wedge attribute lifts the upper body to alleviate pressure points surrounding the throat. This will eventually lead to the elimination of snoring. Aside from assisting with snore reduction or elimination, the product also supports in easing acid reflux.

Better sleeping pillow should also be included in your lists. Created by a famous and respected neurosurgeon, the Better Sleep Pillow is designed to battle the difficulties with insomnia as well as support others who are combating snoring, sleep apnea, etc. It boasts impressive high-density hypoallergenic urethane memory foam. It also touts a core and lateral recess that enables you to sleep on your belly, side position or rear.

Believe me, it’s often not an easy thing to believe that intense snoring can just stop one day with the help of an anti-snoring device. But it happens everyday, and my readers from the USA, Canada and Europe all love the changes in their life. Take Leonard, from Harrisburg, PA, as an example:

My wife finally couldn’t take anymore, and I have to admit I was pretty embarrassed that at 35, my wife and I had separate bedrooms! I mean, this isn’t the 50s anymore, but who could blame her? I was finding that more and more I was snoring so intensely that I would wake myself up at night and then have real problems getting back to sleep. I pretty much felt like crap, and I knew I had to do something right away.

It all ended when I found your site, and especially your great review of the Good Morning Snore Solution. I had read a bit about the difference between jaw advancing and tongue retaining mouthpieces, and just figured I’d try the GMSS because I quickly realized the tongue retaining kind was probably my best bet. Well, after a few days getting used to it (it wasn’t hard – just weird, I guess), I felt a million times better. Then, after about a week, my wife decided to see if she could sleep with me again.

Well, turned out that she could. My snoring has subsided to the point where I’m a sound sleeper. It’s really amazing! I’m really grateful for the resource you’ve put up here. I’m sure if your site helped me, it probably helps thousands of others. Keep it up!

Comfort Is King

One of the best products we’ve seen, that of course also works for minimal to medium snorers is the SnoreLess Pillow. Pound-for-pound, nothing packs a better punch as far as not only stopping snoring (although I would never recommend it for heavy snorers), but also making sleeping a lot more comfortable for a lot of people. It’s a sentiment that Debbie from Omaha, NE echos:

Chris,

I’m sure you get a lot of emails like this, but I wanted to sincerely thank you for your site snoring.mouthpiece.report. It’s been a big help for me in my quest to finally rid myself of this nagging snoring problem. My husband never mentioned it until recently, so it’s one of those problems that surprised me. But after some of the sleepless nights he had (and the grump he became!), I decided I need to do something about it, and found your site with a Google search.

Well, at first I considered a mouthpiece, because I assumed it would work, and because I knew that I could stand sleeping with something in my mouth (as a former braces-wearer, I spent many a night with a retainer). But once I read your SnoreLess pillow review, I decided to give it a shot instead. Not only was it cheaper, I also liked the idea of the comfort factor, particularly as I have some major lower-back issues.

Well… what can I say? The SnoreLess is just fantastic. I love it. Now not only is my snoring all but gone – I also don’t wake up with the bad lower back pain that I’ve had for what seems like forever! My husband laughed when he found out that I ordered a pillow to stop snoring, but he isn’t laughing anymore. Instead, he’s eating his words!

Thank you so much for all your great work.

Age Over Beauty – Always

One of the most interesting things about snoring is that it isn’t a problem that most of us have for our entire life. In fact, most snorers don’t start snoring until 30 years old – while some are silent until their 70s!!! It’s a strange beast, sleep apnea and snoring, in that the later in life you are, the higher the likelihood that you snore. But with age, different problems can also come to play when it comes to this problem, such as that experienced by Warren from Los Angeles, CA:

…Finding out how to stop snoring certainly wasn’t easy for me – in fact, I had been searching for quite a long time for something that worked. I even took to the snoring throat sprays, which worked for a little while, but then slowly stopped working. I wanted something permanent, but most of the mouthpieces didn’t work for me because of my dentures! Reading through your site, I recognized that all the “jaw advancing” types of mouthpiece just wouldn’t be effective for me – unless I wanted to risk choking in the middle of the night!

Of course, the Good Morning Snore Solution opened up the possibility of an actual permanent solution for someone like me. I’ll admit I wasn’t completely on board with the idea that a “tongue sucker” would work, but I had to try something.

And I’m really glad I did. I am sleeping like a baby these days, and so is my wife. She wishes I would have found this 20 years ago! Thank God for the Internet!

Is Something Working For You?

One of the greatest things about running this site has been that my readers tend to let me know when they’ve found “their snoring solution”. It not only helps me (by giving me such great ideas), but it helps every single visitor to the site.

Thanks for reading, and if you have a story you’d like to share, drop me a line at Chris @ this site, or just leave a comment. Good luck!

The Stop Snoring Mouthpiece: A Great Device to Stop Snoring

Tags

Have you been bothering your spouse or kids with annoying snores? Perhaps it is the time to act unilaterally and fight this at times brutal sleep condition. So how do you eliminate snoring? Solutions for snoring problems have grown and expanded dramatically throughout the years, as the medical field finally recognizes snoring and sleep apnea as a huge problem!

One of these solutions that are now quickly growing in acceptance worldwide is the stop snoring mouthpiece – read a review here. While many criticize them as being uncomfortable and visually unappealing (when it comes to cheap ones, I consider myself part of that group), these contraptions are very effective in stopping and eliminating snoring.

A stop snoring mouthpiece is also commonly regarded to as a very effective and advanced device that works by introducing the mouthpiece into your oral cavity, particularly over the teeth. A good  mouthpiece molds to the contour of your mouth to guarantee that it does not hurt or cause any discomfort (BEWARE: if you feel discomfort, ditch your mouthpiece – remember the key is for you to get some solid sleep!).

A stop snoring mouthpiece is also specifically designed to softly hold your lower jaw in a forward placement during sleep. By doing so, the mechanism that causes snores is hopefully nullified. The mouthpiece basically opens the passageways on your throat and leads the rushing air through in a smoother manner as it makes its way across the throat area. The volume of air passing through the throat area does not vibrate the expanded tissue and so snoring is prevented.

Fighting Snoring Is A Lifestyle Choice

Aside from snoring mouthpieces, other home remedies and lifestyle interventions may be employed to stop snoring (especially if you don’t want to wear a mouthpiece for the rest of your life!)

For example, many doctors advise snorers to exercise regularly in order to solidify the tissue at the back of the throat that is associated with the sleep condition. You should also alter your lifestyle habits. If you are an avid smoker, alcohol drinker or drug abuser, drop the habits and live healthier. This not only helps you eliminate snoring, but also definitely improves the overall quality of your life.

Check out a review on a really effective (not to mention comfortable) mouthpiece here.

 

No Need For A Mouthful

Hey, let’s face it: snoring mouthpieces are not the most comfortable things to wear. In fact, many snorers report that they have difficulty sleeping with a piece of plastic in their mouth. It makes sense. These devices aren’t the most natural things on earth, after all.

If you find yourself uncomfortable with mouthpieces, you may want to consider a jaw supporter. Jaw supporting devices are far more comfortable to use, and are adjustable specifically for your comfort. Plus, they work, and work well.

Other Tips
If snoring is a pretty major problem for you should try to alter the environment where you sleep in. Allergens can cause snoring to occur. Make sure to clean your bedroom from dust and debris that may induce allergies. Change your mattresses and your pillowcases at least once a month. In addition, vacuum your tapestries, flooring and curtains.

Sleep positioning may be an issue. You may want to consider the SnoreLess pillow for this. If you want a free solution, consider sleeping in a lateral position (on your side). This works sometimes, and may at least limit the overall noise.

Still… if your problem is serious, take it seriously!
