There was a time when I thought I was born into this world to snore. I belong to the Grade 3 Snoring category as I am known to disrupt people’s sleep as if my life depended on it. If snoring were a money-making habit, I’d be a billionaire today.
My name is Dave, and here’s my story of how I overcame the disturbing and annoying habit of snoring.
The Beginning: Obstructive Sleep Apnea
When I was 8 or so, my parents, who were very concerned about my notorious snoring habit even then, took me to a specialist. They were told something was wrong with my adenoids, and I heard words like ‘tonsils,’ ‘sleep apnea,’ ‘surgery,’ etc., bandied about.
The medical team said something about my blood type and anesthesia and advised against surgery. I have not found out why they decided not to perform surgery, and my parents never came forth.
So, I lived with this embarrassing problem, disrupting people’s sleep while I always slept like a baby without a care in the world. What is more, my own sleep was interrupted time and again every night, and I nearly always woke up the next day feeling sore and deprived of sleep.
Years later, during my research into this problem, I discovered that the condition I suffered is known as obstructive sleep apnea.
What Happens When You Fall Asleep?
You see, each night you sleep, your body and brain undergo a vital process of repair and rest. When you are deeply asleep, your tissues and organs repair themselves automatically. Your energy levels get recharged, and your entire immune system is revitalized or renewed.
When you fall into dream sleep, i.e., REM sleep, your brain goes through its own crucial restoration and repair process. This is why you need enough hours of both types of sleep each night if you want to complete, gain, and enjoy the real benefits of this essential physical and mental repair process.
But then, when you snore, you wake up several times during the night even without realizing it. Although the period of wakefulness may just be a split second per time, it breaks that repair/restoration process. Your body doesn’t get enough REM sleep and deep sleep.
The result is that you wake up very tired, with a headache, and in a bad mood. Depriving yourself of sleep for the long term can bring about chronic depression, lack of energy, depression, weakened immune system, and weight gain.
This leaves you highly vulnerable to ill health unless you do something about it. This was my experience until I got fed up and decided to do something about it.
Of course, I wanted to stop snoring. Many aspects of my life suffered due to this insufferable habit. Even though I looked like a happy-go-lucky guy, I secretly wished and prayed that I would stop snoring and be like every other regular person.
For that reason, I always slept alone and did not share my room or apartment with anyone else. My girlfriends preferred to come and go instead of sleeping over, and the few that did sleepover never volunteered for a repeat performance.
My search for answers took me to the internet, where I spent countless hours poring over medical or health-related articles. I watched videos on YouTube and even spent a nice little fortune on several gadgets that claim to stop people from snoring.
But none of these gadgets worked for me. I was so ashamed that I never bothered to take up the merchants’ offers of asking for refunds if those devices did not work for me.
However, this did not stop me from searching for a solution online, and one day, I struck gold!
Why Do You Snore and Should You Be Worried About It?
When you sleep, the airways in your nose and throat relax. At times, the relaxation of the airways causes them to narrow, making air travel faster through them.
As you breathe in and out, the flow of air through the constricted airways causes the soft tissues in the back of your nose, mouth, and throat to vibrate. This vibration causes snoring or noisy breathing during sleep.
Research shows that up to half of all people snore at one point or the other during their lifetime. Men are at least twice more likely to snore than women. Another study conducted in the United Kingdom reveals that up to 44 percent of individuals consider snoring the most annoying or disagreeable bedtime habit in a spouse or partner.
More than one-third of couples report snoring as one of the major issues they deal with from time to time.
What is Your Grade Snoring Category?
Before I tell you how I finally overcame this disturbing habit, it is vitally important to understand grade snoring and what it is all about.
Grade snoring simply refers to the 3 grades of snoring that health professionals use to assess your snore’s severity. This is vitally important as it will make it easier to determine what will work for you.
Here are the 3 grades of snoring you should know:
Grade One Snoring
People in this category snore occasionally or from time to time, but not loudly. If you belong to this category, your breathing will not be affected or cause any significant health issues.
However, if your snoring annoys your spouse or partner, you should take steps to treat it, or else, you may face some personal problems.
2. Grade Two Snoring
Those in this category snore loudly each night such that people outside your bedroom can hear you clearly. You may even be disrupting their sleep with your loud snores.
Most people that snore this loudly probably feel tired and very irritable during the day. If you do, it could have a very negative impact on your day-to-day life.
There is also an excellent chance that you may have what is medically known as obstructive sleep apnea. This can bring about severe long-term health problems.
3. Grade Three Snoring
This is a heightened version of Grade Two Snoring. You need to do something about this type of snoring before it affects your overall health.
The Anti Snoring Nose Clip and Drops That Ended It All
Remember when I said I struck gold one late night many years ago? That was when I came across AirSnore™, an easy-to-use, highly effective, low-priced solution made to banish snoring completely from your life.
This is an excellent alternative to those heavy-duty, uncomfortable apparatuses that I have used in the past. What made AirSnore™ even more interesting to me is that it does not require any special fitting by a dentist.
You can be up and ready to sleep the night away with AirSnore™ within a few minutes.
AirSnore™ is innovatively produced and supplied by a leading and trusted name in the healthcare industry. It was made in FDA-approved facilities using high-quality materials and ingredients. The highest standards were adhered to strictly, and every step was carried out following strict clinical guidelines that pose no harm to humans and pets.
How the AirSnore™ Mouthpiece Works
You can fit the AirSnore™ mouthpiece – which molds itself – inside your mouth. This ensures a very comfortable fit with zero irritability. When in place, the mouthpiece moves your jaw slightly in order to open up your upper airway.
This allows you to breathe even more easily when you are asleep and conveniently prevents you from snoring. I couldn’t believe that I slept more soundly when this device was in place. My neighbor even had to check up on me the next day to confirm my presence in my apartment.
This was someone who had practically become a sworn enemy due to my snoring. He was shocked when I opened the door as he saw I was still in my PJs. His facial expression said it all: this AirSnore™ mouthpiece worked!
Now, people around me could sleep peacefully without getting disturbed by my snores.
The AirSnore™ Drops
If you have a cold, cough, or even a chest infection, it can affect the way you sleep. If you also find it pretty difficult getting to sleep in the first instance, there’s hardly anything you can do about it, except maybe you swallow some sleeping pills.
But using sleeping pills or sedating medications can relax your neck muscles and worsen your snore. This is what AirSnore™ Drops were made to prevent.
AirSnore™ Drops is a blend of natural oils with antiseptic and soothing properties that help alleviate symptoms while sending you to sleep without snoring. This unique blend clears your airways and eases your breathing, helping you fall asleep easily and ensures you get the full night’s, snore-free sleep you deserve.
All you need to do is to rub AirSnore™ Drops on your neck, chest, and under your nostrils in the evening right before you hit the sack.
Insert your AirSnore™ mouthpiece in place, and you will be away to dreamland before you say, ‘Jack Robinson!’
The following are the ingredients that make up the blend of oils known as AirSnore™ Drops:
Peppermint (Mentha piperita) Leaf Oil
Sunflower (Helianthus annuus) Seed Oil
Lavender (Lavendula angustifolia) Flower Oil
Scots Pine (Pinus sylvestris) Leaf Oil
Eucalyptus (Eucalyptus globulus) Leaf Oil
As you can see, these are natural ingredients derived from natural sources under the most hygienic conditions. So, there’s nothing to worry about, especially as regards the use of artificial components.
The AirSnore™ is a drug-free and guaranteed way to stop snoring for life. You and your spouse/partner or loved ones will enjoy a great night’s sleep each time you hit the sack. This was how I was able to stop snoring after almost two decades of annoying everyone around me.
