Janet Bennett, author and sleep expert, provides an overview of her comprehensive sleep program (ijustwanttosleep.com) that is helping people find a way to get better, more restful sleep.
Bennett is an experienced, successful Speech Pathologist in private practice who is passionate about helping people end their suffering and find new pathways to quality sleep. Bennett explains that snoring is a definite sign that a person’s sleep is not ideal. Snoring indicates mouth breathing which may be preventing one’s body from going into that deep REM sleep that we all need to feel refreshed come morning.
Bennett explains how snoring can lead to sleep apnea, and she talks about the importance of educating people about the signs. While many people seem to think they cannot breathe well through their nose, and thus resort to mouth breathing, the truth is—they can, and simply need to relearn or train themselves on how to nose breath again.
Bennett explains how her program trains people to put the tip of their tongue at a certain spot on the palette, which can help them immensely. The good sleep entrepreneur talks about CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure) machines, and provides information about the changes in the industry.
Bennett discusses mouth breathing in detail, and she expounds upon the various tongue exercises that anyone can use to retrain their tongue to hold itself at the roof of the mouth, which enables you to breathe naturally through the nose. She talks about snoring causes and effects, snoring treatment, and the hundreds of snoring sufferers she has worked with through the years. And her work produces results, which she discusses.
Bennett provides some impressive stats regarding improvement and the results seen after people utilize her program.
