Am I not convincing enough?

How do you do! If you paid heed to the links of this blog you must have probably noticed that I also keep two more blogs dedicated to snoring cures and remedies. What made me start a separate blog Sleep Apnea Cures, you ask? I'll tell you. Snoring and sleep apnea are different phenomena. Respectively, they should be treated, cured or remedied differently.

sleep apneaAs a matter of fact, snoring usually accompanies obstructive sleep apnea. But sleep apnea is a more severe airway obstruction. When snoring the airflow is somehow hindered but still it can pass through the upper airways. In case of sleep apnea the airflow is completely blocked and a total cessation of breathing for several seconds. How can you diagnose obstructive sleep apnea? Well, it's quite easy. Just listen. A sleeping man is snoring... Snoring... Snoring... And then silence... A pause that may last up to two minutes and even longer. Something like sporadic sobs are heard and then snoring resumes but even loader and more intense... Yeah, how could my poor wife bear it is a mystery that I will never percieve! The fact is that it's not just harmless acoustics inconveniences. Sleep apnea tells on the general health condition considerably and if one doesn't treat it properly the consequences may be really deplorable. But before I speak of sleep apnea cures I wanna briefly touch upon those unpleasant things the disease may lead to.

Nowadays there is no data that proves the fact that obstructive sleep apnea may cause death. But nevertheless the basic thing is that the amount of oxygen gets significantly lower and a sleeping apnea person may be"getting blue" right before smb.'s very eyes. The brain signals a person to wake up so the sleep becomes fragmented (didn't you noticed it?) . The blood pressure become higher, the heartbeat gets faster. So generally speaking a person sleeps but doesn't rest. What comes next? Reduced immunity? Myocardial infarction? Acute stroke? Sudden death in bed? Am I not convincing enough? So everybody should not take a delay but resort to sleep apnea cures immediately until it's too late...
