Medical authorities report that habitual snoring and breathing impairment when asleep can lead to poor sleep and serious health conditions, and a doctor should be consulted. Among the visible and immediate symptoms associated with poor sleep are:

-Dry mouth immediately after waking up,
-Sore throat,
-Abdominal discomfort, and
-Sleepiness and sluggishness throughout the day.

Clinical research and studies conclude that SNORING is most frequent and loudest when you sleep on your back as gravity's effect on the throat narrows the airway”.

Physician-reported sleep apnea is on the increase but it is important to understand that not all snorers have OSA or Obstructed Sleep Apnea and that in either case sleeping on the back worsens the ability to breath.
