Do you feel like you’re struggling to keep your eyes open during the morning hours, no matter how early you went to sleep the night before? Is your bed partner very ornery because of your loud, chronic snoring? Have you nearly fallen asleep while driving because you’re just so tired all the time? If the answer to these questions is “yes,” it’s time to consider the possibility that you may be one of 25 million other Americans who suffer from sleep apnea.
Sleep apnea is a serious health problem that deprives patients of the deep rest they need to feel genuinely energized come morning. Sleep deprivation isn’t only irritating – it can be debilitating and deadly as well over time.

Everyone misses a couple of hours of sleep here and there – no big deal. But when you’re consistently not sleeping well night after night after night, that’s a serious problem. In fact, these patterns over months or even years can wreak havoc on a person’s physical and mental health. You see, both the body and the brain require sleep to recover from each day’s various stresses. Without this rest period, you can literally begin to break down, both inside and out.
Chronic sleep deprivation has been linked through countless studies to the development of cognitive problems, from minimized focus to a lacking memory to mood swings. Eventually, these issues can start to negatively impact a person’s relationships with others as well. After all, it’s really difficult to be a present spouse, parent, or even employee when all you can think about is how exhausted you are.
A constant lack of quality sleep can lead to serious physical problems as well. In fact, the balance of certain hormones can be thrown completely out of sync, such as leptin and ghrelin, which let a person know when they are hungry and when they are done eating. This can lead patients to overeat and even put on weight – which can worsen sleep apnea symptoms even further!
Finally, countless studies have shown that sleep deprivation can be a pressing danger to the people around you as well. Exhausted drivers are twice as likely to be involved in an accident as other drivers, even those who have been drinking. In fact, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, drowsy drivers cause approximately 800 deaths and 72,000 wrecks per calendar year.
When did you last sleep through the night without interruption and wake up feeling wonderful? Dedicated treatment from Dr. Michel can make this dream an actual reality. You’ll get the high-quality rest you need every night at last!
Do you wish you felt up to working out more? Are you wanting to work longer hours to finally secure that promotion? Is it time to start a passion project? Whatever your goals are, you need plenty of energy to make them happen! The right sleep apnea therapy can literally lift the weight of exhaustion from your shoulders and help you live a life free of unfair restrictions.
Being tired can also make a person more irritable and forgetful than they normally are, which isn’t very pleasant. What’s worse is that chronic snoring can lead to spouses missing out on important sleep as well. With sleep apnea therapy, you can finally become yourself again and regain the patience and compassion that your loved ones deserve. It’s easier than you think!
