Are you living with sleep apnea?

Pay attention to your breathing for a minute. Are you primarily taking in air through the nose or the mouth? If the answer is the mouth, you may want to be tested for sleep apnea. 

Millions of Americans suffer from sleep apnea and many are not receiving adequate treatment. The disorder is characterized by interruptions in breathing at night. Frequent, loud snoring is a common symptom, although the two are not mutually exclusive. Some patients report waking up rapidly at night and others say they feel exhausted after a full night’s rest. 

Mouth breathing is dangerous because it’s not how our bodies were designed to function. Air intake through the nose delivers the correct amount of oxygen to the body at the rate that it was designed to get there. Nasal hairs act as filters that trap bacteria from getting into the bloodstream. 

Over time, the effects of sleep apnea can become severe. The disorder puts a large amount of stress on the body, often resulting in problems such as high blood pressure, heart stroke and accelerated obesity. It also negatively affects many existing conditions. 

If you would like information about treatment options for sleep apnea, please contact Amy Norman D.S.S., P.S.
