The Biggest Turn-Off While You're Sleeping Could be Deadly!

Everybody knows snoring is probably the biggest turn-off in the bedroom. Being kept awake at night by someone who is blissfully unaware of the torture he or she is imposing is neither fun nor sexy.

According to a recent survey from the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine (AADSM), 83 percent of the 1,009 people surveyed by telephone said they had a snoring bed partner.

The connection between sleep apnea and sleep disorders and Vitamin D deficiency

Trouble sleeping? This is an amazing lecture by Stasha Gominak, MD, neurologist, on Vitamin D and sleep-related issues. While I disagree with her understanding about the origins of life, her contribution to our understanding of the connection between sleep apnea and sleep disorders and Vitamin D deficiency is remarkable.

CPAP Therapy Blues

Bummed about having to wear a CPAP therapy mask?

So was I. When I first saw what the doctors expected me to wear at night to address my sleep apnea issue, I was shocked! I couldn't believe it! I felt like I was being robbed of every ounce of glamour I'd ever imagined myself to have. Ugly medical devices were for other people - not for me!
