SnoreMeds snoring mouthpiece is an effective treatment for simply snoring. It was discovered to be an effective device to treat snoring by website owner and product distributor David Hernandez. He had suffered for years with snoring and mild obstructive sleep apnea and thankfully he is making this product available in the USA.
Bronx, NY (PRWEB) January 27, 2009 -- Sleep plays a vital role in our daily lives and many Americans don't get enough of it. But it's not always late nights and early rising that's the true culprit - it's snoring, or a more serious medical condition called sleep apnea. Sleep apnea is a potentially life threatening disorder because the patient stops breathing in their sleep. Some individuals though are snorers who never suffer from the graver condition. Either way, when someone suffers from snoring, they never feel fully rested.
David Hernandez was one such snorer and his dentist outfitted him with a device that opens the mouth and allows more air to flow freely, alleviating snoring. It works by opening the mouth and positioning the lower jaw forward. The price tag was a hefty one though - $3,000.
Although it worked wonderfully for Hernandez, he wondered what happens to people who don't have proper insurance or any insurance at all? What other solutions for snorers might there be?
"Sleep apnea, and even some snoring, is usually treated with what's called a CPAP machine - a device that blows air through a hose and a mask while the patient sleeps," explains Hernandez. "But it's very expensive and can be incredibly uncomfortable. The other solution was the one my dentist provided - a mouthpiece that opens the airway to alleviate snoring. But not everyone can afford $3,000. So I went in search of a solution and found the SnoreMeds mouthpiece."
Hernandez contacted the South African manufacturer and found out that, although they sell and ship to the U.S., there were no USA distributors of this product. So he purchased one from them, tried it and found it worked as well as his $3,000 device.
"I've seen commercials for similar products, but I tried this one since it resembled the $3,000 device I purchased. After using it, I didn't even realize I was wearing it at night and I had a lot more energy throughout the day. I knew I had to tell other fellow snorers about it, so I started the website stopsnoringmouthpiece.com to offer an economical solution for people like myself."
Hernandez and SnoreMeds both stress that sleep apnea is a serious medical condition and this device should only be used for typical snoring. It's not meant for snoring that's the result of sleep apnea and only a sleep test can confirm the difference. But for those who aren't diagnosed with sleep apnea, it's a low-cost solution to common snoring that doesn't result in spending thousands of dollars.
SnoreMeds, however, doesn't benefit just patients (or loved ones of patients that have to sleep with a snorer every night). Healthcare providers are seeing the benefit of stopsnoringmouthpiece.com.
"Professionals in healthcare are usually in their field because they want to help people," says Hernandez. "If the diagnosis is only snoring then spending $3,000 on a anti-snoring mouthpiece means some of their patients go untreated. But now they have a place they can refer patients to who can't afford high-end snoring devices. They offer real relief, and at a price their patients can afford."
