Could your partner's loud snoring be dangerous to their health? 

The answer, of course, is YES! This is probably not fair after Super Bowl Sunday because I'm sure there was a higher percentage of snorers in the bedroom and on the couch because of late night snacking and beer. Did you know that more men call in sick on the Monday after Super Bowl Sunday than any other day of the year? Maybe they and their partners did not get a good night's sleep because of the incessant snoring. If you snore then chances are that you are losing oxygen at night which will affect your brain function the next day.

Don't go into the end zone - Go into the O-Zone. If you are losing oxygen during the night - you need ozone for full body cellular repair.

Characterized by very loud snoring and feeling tired after a full night's sleep, sleep apnea is the most common manifestation of sleep-disordered breathing affecting about one in four men and one-tenth of women. Sleep apnea can be very dangerous causing health consequences from lost productivity to increased all-cause mortality. It can also increase cardiovascular morbidity, psychiatric illness and lost productivity. 

A big and important symptom of obstructive sleep apnea is daytime sleepiness. According to information cited in an article published in SLEEP, “a major obstacle to OSA treatment is poor adherence to gold-standard therapy: CPAP. Despite dose-response symptomatic improvements with usage, compliance is unpredictable and correlates weakly with [apnea hypopnea index], cardiovascular morbidity, and sleepiness.” The CPAP machine is a breathing device that provides breathing assistance at night in the form of a continuous positive airway pressure. Treatment also often includes lifestyle changes such as weight loss. 

Treatment often includes lifestyle changes, such as weight loss and the use of a breathing assistance device at night, such as a continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) machine.
