MELBOURNE, Australia, Jan. 16, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The Secret to Sleep could be right under your nose. Many of us are unaware of how we breathe at night - which can lead to a raft of sleep problems. According to The Sleep Ambassador, Nancy H. Rothstein, your nose may help you wake up to a better night's sleep.
The CDC is calling sleep deprivation a public health epidemic. If you're not feeling rested after sleeping - and you've been checked for any sleep disorder from your doctor - one reason may be because of poor quality sleep. Maybe you're waking yourself up due to your own snoring or breathing through your mouth is compromising your sleep.
Research shows snoring interferes with sleep quality and sleep quantity - both for the person who snores and often also for the person who sleeps with or near the snorer. There are many good reasons to tackle snoring, including restoring sleep, guarding against risks to health and improving daytime functioning.
"Our stressful, 24/7 lives, poor sleep habits, electronic screen time etc. are all impacting our sleep... Few people are connecting the quality of their sleep with their breathing," comments Rothstein.
Our noses are designed for optimal breathing and Rothstein highlights that it's important for us to breathe through our nose 24/7.
As Rothstein reiterates: "Snoring is typically caused by some kind of airway obstruction and/or difficulty breathing through the nose, which causes the mouth to open to get airflow."
One way to help encourage and support nasal breathing is through the use of 'Mute'. Mute sits comfortably just inside the nose and works by gently expanding the nasal passages to minimize the effects of nasal congestion to allow air to flow more freely during sleep. It is easy to use, drug-free, discreet, and comes in three sizes to fit most nose types.
Mute is now available through selected Walgreens, Bartell Drug, CVS and Duane Reade stores and online at http://mutesnoring.com.
