    Sleep Apnea

    This article shows the relationship between sleep apnea and your dentist. When you're at the dentist, ask your dentist, "Am I grinding my teeth at night?". If so, you may have sleep apnea.

    This article is one of the best I've read in explaining how destructive poor sleep is to your health. When you have sleep apnea, you can't get a good night's rest. When you can't achieve "deep sleep", you not only feel chronically tired throughout the day but, emotionally, you become easily agitated and irritable (then, guess what happens when you feel this way????)...


    There are millions of overweight people who struggle to lose. Please understand this simple rule:

    No pill, no supplement, no herb or hormone treatment and certainly no GB surgery can open a blocked airway when you sleep at night.


    Science is quickly discovering that at the root of all metabolic disorders is poor sleep. Talk to your doctor about how you can improve your night time sleep quality.
