Sleep Facts & Tips
People with poor sleep are at least four times more likely to have a motor vehicle accident than others.
Sleep/breathing issues are more common in men than women although after menopause more women are at risk.
Lack of sleep is associated with having more fatty tissue around the neck.
Sleep/breathing issues are also associated with genetically narrower airways or particular facial structures (underbites etc).
Pills, sprays, nose clips etc cannot assist sleep/breathing issues as they are caused by collapsing airways.
Things to try to avoid : alcohol, sleeping pills, large meals late at night. In short anything that will further relax the muscles of the throat or disrupt sleeping patterns.
