Sleep & snoring

Sleeping is as vital to life as eating and drinking — the body restores itself during sleep. Sleeping disorders together with accompanying tiredness disturb the balance of the organism and promote serious health problems such as infarction, hypertension, diabetes, stroke, weight increase, etc. Snoring is a sign of flabbiness of airways and it means that the body does not get enough oxygen. Oxygen is needed for the normal functioning of all organs.

Many people with sleeping disorders or people who have fallen asleep behind the wheel or have had an accident because of tiredness are not aware that they might be suffering from sleep apnea.

„Snoring is abnormal, it is a sign of illness. The right treatment will reduce snoring, restore health, reduce tiredness and weight,“ promises the sleep doctor Dr Erve Sõõru.
