15 Top Tips on Mattress Buying

03 Mar, 2014 | Posted By

Martin Simon

1. Allow time when buying a mattress

 The longer you try a mattress in store, the less likely you are to make a mistake on the firmness and comfort of the mat- tress. We recommend 15-20 minutes lying on your mattress of choice. First, lie on your back, then on your side. If you are with a partner, get them to move around to check the level of disturbance. Roll over on the mattress and ensure you are able to turn over with ease. Ask the sales assistant to check that you are lying in a healthy position and your spine is correctly aligned. The sales person can advise on the make- up of the mattress and can make recommendations, but only you can judge how comfortable it is.

Snoring and Sleep Apnoea

03 Mar, 2014 | Posted By

Martin Simon

Snoring is caused by the vibration of the tissues lining the air passages or roof of the mouth. This can be caused by factors such as smoking, alcohol, being overweight, ageing, hormonal issues, or even reflux affecting the tissues of the air passage. An open, clear airway during sleep allows for normal breathing and quiet sleeping. All the above factors mentioned previously ultimately have the same effect: that is to allow the tissues in the back of the throat (pharynx, larynx area) to obstruct or interfere with the airways. They do this because either they are swollen and inflamed (this happens with smokers), enlarged and thickened (common with overweight people), or because during sleep the head and neck are incorrectly positioned and naturally obstruct the throat (this occurs when you sleep with your chin against your chest, usually whilst sleeping on your back).Read More
