Extra Myth 8. It’s Normal To Snore
Small bits of snoring as one sleeps is not really a big deal. It might just be caused by allergies or sinus trouble, particularly during Spring and Fall/Autumn periods when these problems are present more often. However, major snoring, especially on a consistent basis, is actually a terrible thing that could actually result in your potential death.
Today, we know snoring is actually a huge issue that the medical community classifies as “Sleep Apnea.” The reason snoring is happening is that, as a person sleeps, their airway is being blocked or not opening correctly. Thus, making it harder to breathe. Not only could Sleep Apnea cause problems breathing but there is also a higher risk for both heart disease & Alzheimer’s disease.
