And You May Be Leaving This Planet Sooner Than You Anticipated.
You think you have a simple snoring problem. That simple problem can lead to severe health concerns. Even death. Not so simple now – is it?
Enough rest and sleep are fundamental to your overall health. You need air. You need water. You need food. You need sleep. It is essential that your brain and body have the time it requires, to re-boot every single day.
Your body and particularly your heart, gather stress throughout the day. When you finally rest at night, your heart slows itself down and begins to decompress. Relieves the stresses it has gathered. Your body needs time to recoup and collect enough energy to tackle another day. Your brain and body revitalize itself. Your blood pressure declines. You slow down the pace of age-related diseases. You can curb illnesses such as obesity, hypertension, memory loss and diabetes.
Lack of sleep can burden your heart by placing excessive strain and stress on the muscle. Heart attacks, strokes, cardiovascular disease and in severe circumstances – death – have all been connected to sleep debt.
Often, snoring is a pre-cursor to a more critical health concern, known as sleep apnea. People with sleep apnea experience an obstruction in their breathing airway. Most times, they don’t even realize it. The obstruction prevents them from getting oxygen regularly throughout the night. Sleep apnea is a major contributing factor to heart disease. Those suffering from sleep apnea experience elevated blood pressure which is a key risk factor in acquiring heart disease and strokes.
The outcome of sleep loss can result in serious health concerns and premature death. Sleep deprivation can have negative effects on the function of your brain, increasing stress hormones and leading to depression.
