"While often overlooked or thought of as funny, snoring is a serious problem that affects approximately 90 million Americans. Chronic snoring can lead to a variety of ailments from high blood pressure to diabetes," said Dr. Jonathan Greenburg, CEO and Founder of ZYPPAH®. "We partnered with Shaquille O'Neal to help elevate the awareness of this very common issue and lead consumers to a life-improving solution."
Having been diagnosed with sleep apnea in 2011 by Harvard Medical School's Division of Sleep Medicine, O'Neal knows firsthand the affects that snoring and sleep apnea can have on one's quality of life and relationships.
"Before being diagnosed, I didn't realize I had sleep apnea or how serious its effects could be," said O'Neal. "Not only did it scare me, but my snoring was causing those around me to suffer. I met with Dr. Greenburg multiple times to find a solution and he introduced me to my ZYPPAH snoring device. It works for me and now I want to help others."
ZYPPAH offers 6 unique styles/colors of snoring devices which are available on their website www.ZYPPAH.com for less than $100. Through their network of Sleep Certified® dentists and physicians at www.SleepCertified.com, fully customizable sleep apnea solutions that work with or without a CPAP machine are available.
Sufferers of sleep apnea can visit a Sleep Certified® doctor to determine if the cost for a ZYPPAH professional appliance is covered by their health insurance provider.
In the coming months, ZYPPAH will rollout a national public awareness campaign across TV, print and digital featuring O'Neal and Dr. Greenburg.
