New York, NY (PRWEB) December 30, 2009
Snoring not only can destroy a relationship but also be associated with sleep apnea, a serious medical problem that can affect heart health and be related to high blood pressure, diabetes, obesity, stroke, depression and even erectile dysfunction. Daytime sleepiness caused by the fragmented sleep of sleep apnea can lead to workplace and motor vehicle accidents.
To make the American public more aware of the dangers of snoring and sleep apnea, StopSnoringAmerica.com introduces the “Do Your Life a Favor”™ initiative.
The Do Your Life a Favor™ Initiative starts with a resolution to the snorer's bed partner in which the snorer promises to seek help to stop snoring and control sleep apnea in the new year.
Life can be tough for the bed partner of a snorer. The constant noise can destroy even the most stable relationship. Separate beds and ultimately separate rooms can lead to loss of intimacy. But the life of a snorer is not easy either. Snoring can lead to sleep apnea with its associated medical problems.
The Stop Snoring America resolution is a downloadable "contract" that the snorer can present to his/her bed partner as a New Year's gift. This is a first step toward ensuring a lasting relationship in good health.
By agreeing on to the resolution, the snorer promises to
1. Stop smoking
2. Lose weight
3. Cut down on the alcohol before bed time
4. Get evaluated for sleep apnea with a sleep test
5. Get professional treatment for snoring and sleep apnea
The addition of the Do Your Life a Favor initiative to our web site strengthens Stop Snoring America's resolve to do more to educate the public to the role dentistry plays in the recognition and management of snoring and sleep apnea.
Calling 1-888-SNORE2010 will connect the caller to a dentist who can provide relief in the form of a custom designed dental mouthpiece in their hometown or city.
Stop Snoring America is a division of Snoring Isn’t Sexy.
