Stop Snoring for Your Health
Snoring is not just a noise problem. It can also be a health problem. People who snore loudly at night, and seem to choke or stop breathing at intervals, are regularly being diagnosed with a condition called sleep apnea.
Sleep apnea is not simply an annoyance. During rest, the snorer intermittently has his or her air passages blocked, usually by the soft palate or back of the tongue falling into the airway. This causes the patient to lose air and often jolt awake. Not only can this be frightening, but it can lead to other concerns, such as regular headaches, neck problems, chronic sore throats and even increased blood pressure.
