Addiction and you

Addiction is a seemingly never ending cycle
On February 3rd, 2016

Oddly enough addiction is not always healed by stopping the action. We need to find the underlying button or trigger for the addiction and then we can remedy the situation, perhaps permanently. It’s not enough to just stop because then you risk feeling empty, or replacing it with another addiction.

So we need to find a way to remedy that. Continue reading » »

Snoring is serious

Obstructive sleep apnoea is serious
On January 25th, 2016

There is a few things you can do to control the snoring and sleep better. Firstly don’t eat or drink too much or have alcohol before you sleep because it will affect your breathing.

Smoking also clogs your nose passages, damages the upper airways and constricts your breathing making the likelihood of snoring even greater. Continue reading » »
