Mark Burhenne, DDS, and I talk about all things sleep and why sleep quality, not just sleep duration, is so important.
As you know, sleep is all the rage these days.
But many people are missing a key aspect that’s linked to sleep quality: how well you breathe while you sleep.
If you have GERD, grind your teeth, snore, or wake up with a dry mouth, you may have a form of sleep-disordered breathing (SDB).
Sleep expert Dr. Mark Burhenne explains.
As you may know, poor sleep and sleep hygiene (lights at night, inconsistent bedtimes) are linked to many diseases, including…
Cancer, heart disease, weight gain, diabetes, and more.
But it’s not just about getting in your 8 hours.
Sleep quality is what counts.
And that has a lot to do with breathing.
But that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Here are a few more highlights from this show:
