Snoring is something that many people struggle with. Not just those who snore, but their loved ones as well (that is, if they have to sleep within earshot of the snorer). But what if your snoring is more than just snoring? What if it’s something more serious, like sleep apnea? Well, there are a lot of treatments and potential solutions for sleep apnea. But there is one that stands out from the rest. That would be Zyppah.
But what is Zyppah? Can it really help sleep apnea? These are both perfectly reasonable questions that we will answer along with a few others. So, let’s get going!
What exactly is sleep apnea?
Let’s start with defining sleep apnea. There is a very good chance that you already know what it is. However, if you are unsure and recognize your own symptoms in the list we will be going over, it is best that you contact your doctor. Sleep apnea can lead to bigger health issues and should be addressed to help prevent these.
The most basic definition of sleep apnea is that it is a sleep disorder that causes breathing to stop and start again repeatedly over the course of the night. But there is a lot more to it than that. There are three specific kinds of sleep apnea. They are obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), central sleep apnea (CSA), and complex sleep apnea syndrome.
The most common one, OSA, is the general cause of snoring. It is caused when the muscles relax so much that they block the airway. This happens with the jaw and with the tongue the most. Those two will relax enough that they may fall to the back of the throat causing a blockage of the airway.
CSA is much less common than OSA. It is based in the nervous system and is caused by the brain not sending the right signals. If the muscles that control breathing don’t get the right signals, then they can’t do their job. Meaning that you may stop breathing. Eventually, the brain will get the signals to the muscles, however there is still a gap in breathing.
Complex sleep apnea syndrome is much simpler to explain, though it can be the most complicated to deal with. It is when you have both OSA and CSA.
Those who deal with any form of sleep apnea often have some frustrating symptoms. They include things like snoring while sleeping, stopping breathing followed by gasping for breath while sleeping, fatigue during the day, headaches in the morning, and irritability caused by lack of sleep. These conditions could also lead to other health complications including high blood pressure, liver problems, and complications with surgery.
It’s not hard to see why doctors are adamant about making sure that sleep apnea is properly addressed, as it can cause so many other issues.
What could Zyppah do for sleep apnea?
It should be stated pretty early on here that Zyppah isn’t gauranteed to cure your sleep apnea. It may be able to help in ways that we will talk about in a moment, but if you believe that you have sleep apnea of any form it is important that you go and see your doctor about it. They may recommend a mouthpiece, and at that point we would recommend Zyppah, or they may have a bigger treatment plan for you, like the use of a CPAP machine or even surgery. It all depends on how severe your apnea is. But if your doctor does recommend a mouthpiece for you, let’s talk about why Zyppah is a perfect choice.
If you have already been looking into snoring mouthpieces, you will quickly find that there are a lot of them out there. But Zyppah really is a cut above the rest. What makes Zyppah stand out is the patented Z-Factor. This is a strap that gently holds the tongue in place. That way it can’t fall back and block the airway. This way Zyppah helps cut down snoring caused by OSA. If you remember, OSA is caused by overly relaxed muscles. Since the tongue is one of the muscles that can block the airway, Zyppah’s Z-Factor could help stem that kind of sleep apnea. However, it may not be the right choice if you have CSA. It is best to talk with your doctor about it.
Zyppah holds an advantage over other mouthpieces in an important area: comfort. Other mouthpieces focus on the jaw, moving it forward. While this may help prevent snoring, it is not the most comfortable, and often leads to people having jaw issues like TMJ. Zyppah is also more effective than other snoring devices like chinstraps, which just hold your mouth closed and do very little to fight the causes of snoring and sleep apnea. So, if you are looking for a mouthpiece that is comfortable and works, then Zyppah is the perfect one for you.
Of course, everyone is different, and not everything works in the same way for everyone. That is, Zyppah may not be exactly what you are looking for. If that is the case, don’t worry. We have a 90-day money-back guarantee. If you don’t love your Zyppah mouthpiece, you can return it within 90 days and get a full refund. That is how confident we are that you will love it.
