Did you know that, like an actual foghorn that is used to warn sailors of hazards ahead, snoring (especially loud snoring in adults) is an alarm as well. Although we may laugh about it, get annoyed about it or even admire it, thinking that the person is resting soundly… we should actually be heeding it’s warning before our health runs into the rocky cliffs of heart disease, stroke, anxiety, depression, obesity, diabetes or dementia. These common perils of health can be due to obstructed air movement in the throat, called sleep disordered breathing (which includes Obstructive Sleep Apnea).

Do you dock at the shore of THE BIG SNORE?

If you have tried all the typical remedies to stop yourself from belting out like a foghorn every night, yet your partner’s earplugs are still not providing relief from your immutable snoring, you may want to ask Dr. Azouz about a way to permanently and non-surgically turn the tide of snoring for the rest of your life.

Have you or someone you know experienced any of these danger signals that indicate disrupted sleep patterns?

  • Stop breathing many times per night Wake up gasping or choking
  • Wake up multiple times throughout the night to urinate
  • Wake up with morning headaches
  • Never feel fully refreshed after a full night of sleep

Of course, snoring doesn’t impact just the one who snores. In fact, 52% of American women reported waking up from their partner’s snoring[1].

As you may have experienced, its rippling effect can cause sleep deprivation for other members of the family sending shockwaves of issues into each person’s life and amongst their relationships. Over time, this can lead to:

  • Partners sleeping in another room Strained
  • marriages/relationships[2] Increased stress, anxiety & depression
  • Daytime fatigue Impaired judgement and cognitive function Physical health issues
  • Or even cause someone to fall asleep while driving

Johns Hopkins research has even shown that severe sleep apnea increases your risk of premature death by up to 46%! [3]
