|Do you suffer from sleep apnea? Do you have any of these symptoms?
The National Commission on Sleep Disorders Research
estimates that 38,000 cardiovascular deaths, due
to sleep apnea, occur each year. Over the long
term, serious sleep apnea conditions have been
linked to a greater risk of hypertension and cardiovascular
diseases. However, sleep apnea was not well understood
or recognized by the medical community until recently.
And only a fraction of sufferers have been diagnosed
- Limb jerking and kicking during sleep
- Depression, reduction in motivation
- ADHD symptoms (hyperactivity)
- Morning headaches, bloodshot eyes
- Multiple bathroom trips during sleep time
- Heartburn (Acid Reflux)

Snoring can indicate
serious upper airway disorders
WASHINGTON (Reuters) -- Dental surgeons discover why snoring can kill: It can actually cause damage to the arteries.
Although considered harmless, snoring can actually indicate a serious medical condition called sleep apnea*. Marked by irregular breathing, sleep apnea often causes sufferers to stop breathing completely for up to several seconds and has even been linked to stroke and heart disease in some patients.
"When persons with sleep apnea fall asleep, their tongue falls back into their throat, blocking their airway," Dr. Arthur Friedlander, an oral surgeon who worked on the study conducted at University of California's School of Dentistry, said in a statement.
"As they struggle for breath, their blood pressure soars...This rise in blood pressure damages the inner walls of the carotid arteries lining the sides of the neck," he added. "Cholesterol and calcium stick to the injury sites and amass into calcified plaques, which block blood flow to the brain. The result is often a massive stroke."
According to Dr. Friedlander, these deposits of calcium deposits are merely the tip of the iceberg.
"The X-ray can't show the true size of the plaque, which is also made up of fat, platelets, and other soft tissue." When a person is suffering from sleep apnea, air cannot flow in or out of the nose or mouth. Oxygen is not taken in so carbon dioxide builds to dangerous levels in the blood.
"It's like pressing a pillow over someone's face," Friedlander said.

Hi fellow snorer,
I'd like to take credit for inventing this product but unfortunately I can't. Chin strap supports have been around for about 100 years.
I have been involved in sales and marketing for the past 20 years and the last 4 or 5 on the internet. It was about a year ago that I received an email that contained information about snoring and sleep apnea. I had only recently begun to snore on a regular basis and only then when sleeping on back, or so I thought. I had just turned 42 and was raising a 3-yr. old and was always tired.
As I began to read the other symptoms I immediately recognized most of them. The dominate ones were the leg twitching, daytime fatigue, love handles. I was also unable to keep up with Alexander. I was generally in bed by 8:00PM. However, the one that caught my attention was the drooling. I would literally have to turn my pillow 5 or 6 times a night because it would be wet from sleeping with my mouth open.
I had no idea why until I read this email and the research in the CNN article. It was obvious I was not getting a solid night's sleep. I would be waking up and turning my pillow throughout the night.
I immediately contacted the company who was selling this jaw support device and ordered one. At this time, one of the products I had been selling for almost 10-years was the Activated Stabilized Oxygen. This product worked wonders in increasing my energy levels and general all around health. As a matter of fact my 3-yr. old loves it and takes it on a regular basis as well.
I knew that one of my reasons for being tired even when waking in the morning was low oxygen levels. This was do to poor sleep and my heart working overtime throughout the night.
After I received the jaw support and began using it I began to notice improved results. Granted these were not immediate! It took several days of wearing it just to keep it on throughout the night. I would unconsciously take it off without knowing it when sleeping and begin snoring again.
It then took another week to ten days before I began to see some improvement. This I found out later was do to years of sleep deprivation caused by a lack of quality sleep. One other thing I'd like to point out is that I still snore from time-to-time. This is do to my now breathing out my nose instead of my mouth which I had been doing for years.
At this point I contacted the manufacturer and flew out to meet with him. It was then that I struck a deal for my company to begin offering these life changing products to others like myself.
After selling 1000's of these jaw supports thru the end of 2002 the company began to have some design and manufacturing challenges. The original design was changed at least once and even then people complained of it staying on when sleeping. Another problem was that after months of uses the support device would lose its' shape and no longer keep the jaw shut. This was the reason for the device, and it was no longer working!
It was then I decided to build a better mousetrap. I contacted a manufacturing company I was working on some other products with. They made me some samples that eliminated all these problems. This is what is now known as the Sleep Genie™ .
The Sleep Genie™ is a lightweight jaw support device that fits comfortably on the head and keeps the jaw in place. It doesn't slide around as one sleeps and it retains its' shape do to the material it is made from. It is also washable and still retains its' form.
I sincerely hope that you give the Sleep Genie™ a fair and honest chance. It has worked for me and is working for hundreds others. Please send me you comments and opinions after using yours.
To a better night's sleep,
The Sleep Genie™ Can Provide Relief!
Sleep Genie™ is a lightweight device that supports your jaw comfortably while you sleep, so it helps keep your mouth closed while you?re sleeping. Sleep Genie™ actually helps you ?retrain? the skin and tissue in your mouth and throat, so that they return to the size and shape they once were. The result is that, with continued use, Sleep Genie™ can help you help you stop snoring and get a better night?s sleep. Sleep Genie™ is comfortable to wear and comes in three sizes. Sleep Genie™ can be worn by everyone in the family!

Are kids snoring their way to ADHD?
CNN Headline News March 4, 2002
Researchers conclude sleepiness and apnea may be exhibited as symptoms of ADHD.
CHICAGO, Illinois (AP) -- New research suggests children who snore face nearly double the risk of being inattentive and hyperactive, providing fresh evidence of an intriguing link between sleep problems and attention deficit disorders.
CNN recently reported on a study that new research suggests children who snore face nearly double the risk of being inattentive and hyperactive, providing fresh evidence of an intriguing link between sleep problems and attention deficit disorders.
Children's behaviorial problems may be linked to their sleep habits, according to a new study. Children who snore often are nearly twice as likely as other children to have attention and hyperactivity problems, found a new study by the University of Michigan Health System. The results, published in the March issue of the journal Pediatrics, provide some of the most solid evidence ever of a link between sleep problems and behavior. The link is strongest in boys under 8. Snorers in this group were more than three times more likely than non-snorers to be.

Most people are not born with a snore...They simply acquire it over a period of time. As we grow older, some people develop the habit of sleeping with their mouths open. This allows the jaw to relax and drop excessively during sleep. As a result, the skin, tissue, and muscles in the throat and mouth area are stretched beyond normal ranges for an extended time (several hours each night).
It's important that you take deliberate corrective action for this habit! Otherwise, it could last your entire lifetime and lead to snoring. As a result, you could be setting the stage for developing serious medical problems, such as artery damage and stroke!
In fact, it might surprise you to know that 24% of adult men and 9% of adult women are estimated to suffer to some degree from a serious sleep apnea condition.
I am writing to you in regards to your "S---- A----" product. After waiting for a bit for your product to arrive. I did finally recieve it and the extra few items that you attatched to it for waiting for a bit longer than expected! I wanted to say that I was so "elated" and "excited" to find that the first and second nights that I wore it it worked!! My husband and I were so impressed! After the 2nd night of wearing it though it did stretch out and has gotten to the point that it no longer works. I think I received this just about 2 weeks ago.
In the package that you sent me you stated that this was the "S---- A----" (the first product that you all produced) you also stated that the up-dated version was a lot better and that you would also be sending the new one out to me for waiting so long. It did indeed have the exact problem of stretching out too much to where now it is not affective any longer. I am writing to you for a couple of different reasons. One is I just wanted to make sure that you are still planning on sending me the newer updated version?
Second, I wanted to say Thank You for the time you spent on producing this product!! I can see that it really does work as long as it doesn't stretch out and that it really is going to be helpful to thousands of people with this problem!! I will highly recommend this product to some very important people in my life that will be thrilled with the results! Could you let me know when I might receive the new product and do you think I should still go with a size large or should I shrink down a size? It did stretch out quit a bit for me. Please let me know I am very interested and excited to receive the new one.

Other risk factors include habitual snoring, which is often a precursor of serious upper airway disorders and OSA. In fact, results from a recent study indicate that one in three men and nearly one in five women who snore habitually suffer from some degree of OSA. sleep apnea sufferers can have 20 to 60 or more involuntary breathing pauses -- called apneic episodes -- per hour, each lasting 10 seconds or longer. People with sleep apnea usually snore between episodes, and then snort, gasp or choke when they start breathing again. OSA sufferers never get a good nights sleep? because repeated arousal's deprive patients of REM (deep-sleep stage) leading to chronic daytime exhaustion and long-term cardiovascular stress.
Consequently, OSA causes a drop in one?s blood oxygen saturation (SaO2) and an increase in the blood?s carbon dioxide (CO2). When the SaO2 drops the heart will start pumping more blood with each beat the SaO2 continues to drop the heart will start beating faster and faster. As the CO2 increases the brain will try to drive the person to breathe. The effort and action of the abdomen and chest will increase. Eventually that action can become severe enough to cause an arousal, (but the arousal does not fully awaken the person) clearing the upper airway blockage, allowing the person to breathe. Then you go back to sleep and it happens all over again.
It is also important to remember that when the immune system is compromised by a lack of oxygen, we are more susceptible to opportunistic bacteria, viral, and parasitic infections and colds, as well as flu. Oxygen deprivation can also lead to life-threatening disease, such as cancer. Cancer and most other infections or disease cannot live in an oxygen-rich environment.
Cancer has only one prime cause. It is the replacement of normal oxygen respiration of the body's cells by an anaerobic (i.e., oxygen deficient) cell respiration.

Depression and Insomnia in Women
One of the main concerns with lack of sleep for women is depression contributed to lack of sleep. If you suffer from sleep apnea your unable to get the needed rest to handle the day to day activities. This affects a woman's hormone level which will cause more sensitivity, mood swings, and irritability. Many American women who are in search of more satisfying slumber are buying a hormone called Melatonin. Doctors have found that most depressed patients suffer from insomnia as a main reason for their depression. Women have a higher chance of insomnia after menopause. The American College of Cardiology found that 33 percent of 71,779 female nurses aged 40 to 65 who snored were more at risk of developing cardiovascular disease that those who did not snore. Sleep apnea affects up to 2 percent of the female population.
Love Handles and Fat Gain in Men
Men who suffer with obstructive sleep apnea often gain weight in the abdomen due to the process of age. As men age, they typically get less and less sleep. With less deep sleep or slow wave sleep there is less bodily production of the growth hormone. That deficiency is associated with increased fat tissue and abdominal obesity, reduced muscle mass and strength, and reduced exercise capacity, Obstructive sleep apnea suffers never get a good nights sleep, because repeated arousals deprive the patient of deep-sleep stage, leading to chronic daytime exhaustion and long-term risk of hypertension and cardiovascular disease. 10 percent of all men snore in the United States, 2 percent of those actually have the disorder.
