Good health doesn’t start without good sleep.

Pro Player Health Alliance (PPHA) recently has put an emphasis on overall health since partnering with the Living Heart Foundation and traveling the country to hold free health evaluations for former professional athletes. Specifically focusing on sleep as the roots to good health, PPHA member and NFL legend Roy Green has said, “Pro Player Health Alliance is not just about sleep. It’s about health. Good health doesn’t start without good sleep. There’s no way around it. If you aren’t sleeping well, you aren’t healthy. When you have sleep apnea, unfortunately, you’re probably dying. There are moments when you aren’t breathing!"

In addition to sleep as a main concern, diet and nutrition have come up on the radar as major components of good health thanks to Courtney Meier's valuable expertise. Courtney Meier, who is more than involved in helping dentists add sleep apnea treatment to their practice, is also adept in fitness and dieting. With her input, PPHA has taken overall health awareness to a new level, adding cardiovascular with Living Heart Foundation's HOPE Program, sleep, diet and fitness to the arsenal.

With Thanksgiving being today, PPHA President David Gergen has stated, "I hope everyone has a Happy Thanksgiving, eat well and do not forget to stay active over the holidays."
