Many people struggle with their sleep, whether is it snoring, grinding teeth, waking up multiple times a night or something else. What they don’t know is they may have a bigger problem, and it may not be what you think it is.
- 74% of adults experience sleeping issues a couple nights every week or more
- Approximately 42 million adults suffer from sleep disordered breathing
- 1 in 5 adults have mild sleep apnea
- 1 in 15 adults have moderate sleep apnea; with 75% remaining undiagnosed
- Chronic sleep loss can lead to a 30-40% reductionin glucose metabolism and can actually shorten your life
With a greater awareness starting to come forward on sleep apnea, we are seeing more and more people of all ages starting to wake up to the possible problem of their airway and breathing and they are addressing it head on. At Nexisom Sleep Wellness Centers, we can help facilitate finding out and determining if you have an airway or breathing issue.
Up until now, solutions for sleep apnea were not actually solutions, they were treating the symptoms and not the root cause of the problem. These treatments at best, were masking some of the symptoms temporarily but only offered nominal improvements. Also, the most effective treatments are bulky, often noisy and uncomfortable. They can actually make the sleep apnea problem worse.
Too often those treatments were pitched to every patient as if there existed a “one size fits all” product, despite every patient having different symptoms, medical history, age to go along with other factors.
One-Size-Fits-All Solutions, Don’t Exist
Today’s treatments for sleep apnea are a temporary fix for what could be a bigger issue, even worse, these solutions can sometimes help mask the symptoms and they will never solve the underlying problem of sleep apnea. Sometimes, they can even make the problem worse.
Sure, these products can improve things like snoring or help you to wake up feeling more refreshed. But if you stop using these treatments? You will revert back to your old problems you had in the first place because those treatments didn’t treat the underlying root cause of the problem.
We, at Nexisom, understand that there is no “one size fits all” treatment that will take away your sleep apnea. That’s why Dr. Schaffer and Nexisom use a revolutionary sleep apnea system to finally resolve your sleep apnea for good.
Understanding Todays Solutions, CPAP & Mouth Guards
CPAP therapy, though it can be effective, is a life sentence if you want to survive. The patient will wear a mask that is hooked to a machine that is very uncomfortable and noisy and perhaps not the most sexy thing either. With CPAP therapy, you seldom see improvement, it’s not a solution and there is no end in sight to stop using the machine.
Dentist are currently prescribing mandibular advancement oral appliances (mouthguards) that will pull the mandible (lower jaw) forward at night while the patient sleeps in order to open up the airway to breath. While you can lose the CPAP machine, mask and the inconvenience, the mouthpiece is also a forever treatment and comes with its’ own risks. Some of the risks are changing your bite, creating an open bite, making your teeth crooked to name a few. Some studies even show the long-term use of this product can even make your sleep apnea worse.
Surgery is always an option as well. One procedure out there will surgically implant a pacemaker type device in your chest with a wire to your tongue and one to the diaphragm. When the patient has an apnea event and stops breathing at night, they will receive a shock to thrust the tongue forward and open up the airway. Imagine that for a minute!
Lastly, patients can take some sort of medication, either prescribed or holistic. Again, the patient may see some relief from some of the symptoms, but because you are treating the symptoms the patient will need to pop pills for the rest of their life.
There is something better than dragging around a CPAP machine, or an outdated mouthpiece, popping pills or even surgery. Today we have an actual noninvasive, nonpharmaceutical all-natural treatment that treats the underlying root cause of the sleep apnea problem where the symptoms disappear.
What we have found at Nexisom Sleep Wellness Centers is that every patient is unique in what they need to be treated for and if we can identify the underlying root cause of their problem, we can find the solution to each person’s sleep apnea and airway issue. We do not simply mask the patient’s problems; we create a custom treatment plan for each patient to address their sleep apnea and breathing issues once and for all.
