This new device could save you from snoring

 

Innovation To Help Those Suffering From Chronic Snoring!!!!!!

Millions of people are familiar with it - snoring. The number one annoyance in the bedroom at night. About one in two men and one in four women of middle age or older snores in their sleep. Previously dismissed as just an annoying disturbance of the peace, snoring is now recognized as a serious sleep and health disorder. These nightly lapses in sleep can even be life-threatening! 

Now there's a revolutionary helper that immediately improves nasal breathing and can thereby keep snoring from happening.

Let's start from the beginning. When snoring, loud breathing noises occur in the upper airways during sleep. A full 70 decibels — as loud as a passing truck. That's the sound many people fall asleep to. The causes of snoring are based on anatomical bottlenecks such as swollen tonsils, polyps, a curved nasal septum, or an excessively long uvula. Men over 50 years old, especially, snore. As many as 60 to 80 percent in this age group are affected.


The device.



It is called the SilentSnore, and it's the first small and easy-to-use device for combating bothersome snoring noises. The innovative aid consists of a soft silicone ring that's pushed into the nose. The built-in therapeutic magnets are also beneficial, according to Traditional Tibetan Medicine. These help to stimulate the nose's sensory nerves and can keep it from falling out during sleep. 

How it works.


The SilentSnore gently widens the nostrils to reduce respiratory resistance in the nose; in other words, air can flow better into the lungs through the nose. As soon as the body registers that nasal breathing is working without restriction again, it unconsciously switches to (much healthier) nasal breathing. In contrast to things like chinstraps, SilentSnore does not disturb you while you sleep.
The SilentSnore is pushed into the nasal opening before going to sleep. Breathe deeply again - SilentSnore promotes nasal breathing and combats disagreeable snoring.
This ingenious little device controls snoring when sleeping without interfering with the normal sleep cycle.
A normal and healthy sleep cycle should include at least 25% at deep sleep, by relieving snoring effectively, stop disturbing your sleeping partner immediately, and guarantee your body rest and regenerate well.

The merits.


  1. Promotes better breathing
  2. Aids in reducing and stopping snoring
  3. Helps reduce dry mouth
  4. Drug-Free
  5. Hypo-Allergenic
  6. Reusable
  7. Stores easily in a clear travel case
  8. Comfortable, lightweight and secure

Did you know that football players are at increased risk of getting alzheimer's disease

Alzheimer's disease

Alzheimer's disease is a progressive disorder that causes brain cells to degenerate  and die. Alzheimer's disease is the most common cause of dementia which is a continuous decline in thinking, behavioral and social skills that disrupts a person's ability to function independently.
The early signs of the disease may be forgetting recent events or conversations. As the disease progresses, a person with Alzheimer's disease will develop severe memory impairment and lose the ability to carry out everyday tasks.

Former professional footballers are three and a half times more likely to die of dementia than people of the same age range in the general population, according to experts at Glasgow University have been investigating fears that heading the ball could be linked to brain injuries.
Current Alzheimer's disease medications may temporarily improve symptoms or slow the rate of decline. These treatments can sometimes help people with Alzheimer's disease maximize function and maintain independence for a time. Different programs and services can help support people with Alzheimer's disease and their caregivers.
There is no treatment that cures Alzheimer's disease or alters the disease process in the brain. In advanced stages of the disease, complications from severe loss of brain function  such as dehydration, malnutrition or infection result in death.

vinegar pregnancy test positive and negative

Yes, even vinegar can help you test your pregnancy. Remember, you will need white vinegar for this particular test.
Take two tablespoons of white vinegar in a plastic container. Add your urine to it and mix it properly. If the vinegar changes its colour and forms bubbles, you are pregnant and if there is no change you are not pregnant. leave your comment below if this worked for you

Humans have salamander-like ability to regrow cartilage in joints

Contrary to popular belief, cartilage in human joints can repair itself through a process similar to that used by creatures such as salamanders and zebrafish to regenerate limbs, researchers at Duke Health found.
Publishing online Oct. 9 in the journal Science Advances, the researchers identified a mechanism for cartilage repair that appears to be more robust in ankle joints and less so in hips. The finding could potentially lead to treatments for osteoarthritis, the most common joint disorder in the world.

"We believe that an understanding of this 'salamander-like' regenerative capacity in humans, and the critically missing components of this regulatory circuit, could provide the foundation for new approaches to repair joint tissues and possibly whole human limbs," said senior author Virginia Byers Kraus, M.D., Ph.D., a professor in the departments of Medicine, Pathology and Orthopedic Surgery at Duke.

Kraus and colleagues, including lead author Ming-Feng Hsueh, Ph.D., devised a way to determine the age of proteins using internal molecular clocks integral to amino acids, which convert one form to another with predictable regularity.

Newly created proteins in tissue have few or no amino acid conversions; older proteins have many. Understanding this process enabled the researchers to use sensitive mass spectrometry to identify when key proteins in human cartilage, including collagens, were young, middle-aged or old.

They found that the age of cartilage largely depended on where it resided in the body. Cartilage in ankles is young, it's middle-aged in the knee and old in the hips. This correlation between the age of human cartilage and its location in the body aligns with how limb repair occurs in certain animals, which more readily regenerate at the furthest tips, including the ends of legs or tails.

The finding also helps explain why injuries to people's knees and, especially, hips take a long time to recover and often develop into arthritis, while ankle injuries heal quicker and less often become severely arthritic.

The researchers further learned that molecules called microRNA regulate this process. Not surprisingly, these microRNAs are more active in animals that are known for limb, fin or tail repair, including salamanders, zebrafish, African fresh water fish and lizards.

These microRNAs are also found in humans -- an evolutionary artifact that provides the capability in humans for joint tissue repair. As in animals, microRNA activity varies significantly by its location: it was highest in ankles compared to knees and hips and higher in the top layer of cartilage compared to deeper layers of cartilage.

"We were excited to learn that the regulators of regeneration in the salamander limb appear to also be the controllers of joint tissue repair in the human limb," Hsueh said. "We call it our 'inner salamander' capacity."

The researchers said microRNAs could be developed as medicines that might prevent, slow or reverse arthritis.

"We believe we could boost these regulators to fully regenerate degenerated cartilage of an arthritic joint. If we can figure out what regulators we are missing compared with salamanders, we might even be able to add the missing components back and develop a way someday to regenerate part or all of an injured human limb," Kraus said. "We believe this is a fundamental mechanism of repair that could be applied to many tissues, not just cartilage."

In addition to Kraus and Hsueh, study authors include Patrik Önnerfjord, Michael. P. Bolognesi and Mark. E. Easley.

The study received support from an OARSI Collaborative Scholarship, a Collaborative Exchange Award from the Orthopaedic Research Society and the National Institutes of Health (P30-AG-028716).

Sleeping next to your dog has amazing health benefits and helps you sleep better

It's the news dog-lovers everywhere will rejoice at.
If you ever feel bad about letting your dog sleep in bed with you, then you can relax.
A recent study was carried out by the Mayo Clinic to discover whether or not the presence of a dog disturbs people when they're fast asleep.
Forty healthy participants with no sleep-related issues were observed, along with dogs who were no younger than six-months-old.
What the study found was that every participant slept measurably better with their dog in their room - it didn't matter about the dog's size, nor how much they moved around in the night.
We don't need to be told twice!
