There are many natural solutions and lifestyle changes that may be investigated to improve or eliminate snoring. But use caution before you self-treat! It’s important to rule out snoring as a sign of Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA), a serious condition that requires medical attention. OSA is connected to high blood pressure, stroke, heart disease, diabetes, and even cognitive and sexual dysfunction. Many accidents are caused by sleepiness from OSA, prompting the trucking industry to test their employees making sure they are being treated by effective therapies, such as CPAP or an oral appliance.
Snoring isn't Sexy is committed to improving the lives of patients suffering from obstructive sleep apnea through awareness, education & treatment resources.
Using a powerful, collaborative approach, Snoring Isn’t Sexy builds awareness of the life threatening impacts of untreated sleep disorders through broad campaigns and coordinated regional activities. Given the significant proportion of OSA sufferers going untreated and the general lack of awareness of both oral appliance therapy as a treatment option and the consequences over time of untreated OSA, the potential impact of a collaborative approach to awareness far exceeds the impact each individual practice could be able to create on their own.
