Snoring can lead to unpleasant situations for both snoring and the people sleeping next to the ones that snore. More than half of the adult people snore, at least occasionally and snoring not only affects the condition of an individual but also of a couple’s partner.

Several people admit that although their marriage is quite happy, a partner who snores disturbs them since they fail to rest properly, which leads to a state of nervousness and decreased power on concentrating on daily tasks. In a few cases, this can even lead to divorce or affect the overall happiness of the relationship, and the partners find themselves in the impossibility of solving a problem that in the end, is none of the partner’s fault.

In all of this there is also a good part, in the sense that there are a number of remedies that allow you to know how to stop snoring and thus make your life a little easier or at least more manageable.

How can you prevent snoring?

Snoring can be prevented by maintaining a proper level of carbon dioxide in the body.

It can also be prevented by:

– avoiding alcohol and slow-breathing medicines, such as pills and tranquilizers;

– maintaining a healthy weight;

– going to bed each evening at the same time. Regular and restful sleep can reduce snoring considerably;

– avoid sleeping on the back;

– stop smoking. This reduces inflammation and swelling of the airways;

– solve respiratory problems as they might increase the risk of snoring.

To better understand how to prevent snoring, it’s best to dig deeper and discover what causes it.

The blocking of the nasal airways can cause snoring since during breathing, the walls of the neck vibrate where strong and distinctive sounds emerge.

Studies show that men have ten times more chances to snore than women. This is mainly due to the action of a male hormone that stimulates appetite and weight, both of which can lead to snoring.

When it comes to taboo subjects for which men seek help, erectile dysfunction (ED) is one of them and can occur at any age. In young people, the cause is likely to be psychological, while in older men, the cause is rather organic. Studies have shown a prevalence of 40% erectile dysfunction in men aged 40 years, while over 70 years is 70%.

Diseases associated with erectile dysfunction include diabetes mellitus, atherosclerosis, hypertension, neurological diseases and a variety of surgeries. Among the surgical interventions that can cause erectile dysfunction include prostate cancer, rectal surgery (the last part of the large intestine), neurosurgical interventions and the lumbar spine. Radiotherapy in prostate cancer can also cause erectile dysfunction.

Various medications can cause ED. The most common problems occur with antihypertensive, antidepressant and other psychoactive drugs. Another cause may be trauma. Pelvic fractures or other traumas around the genital area may be associated with erectile dysfunction.

Smoking is a major cause, accentuating the aggression of diabetes, high blood pressure or atherosclerosis on blood vessels. Alcohol consumption in elevated amounts may be associated with erectile dysfunction due to hormonal changes related to liver disease. Moderate alcohol consumption does not cause erectile dysfunction. Erectile dysfunction can be improved for better sexual performance and better self esteem

At CALIBRE Clinic specialists have developed the PRP Procedure for ED treatment, which is a clinical assessment and medical PRP injection program aimed at regenerating penile tissue and allowing men to enjoy long term healthy erectile function.  This is something that was created for a common need, since many as half of all men aged between 40 and 65 years will suffer from some level of erectile dysfunction at different stages in their lives. This is a very common condition and apart from the inevitable aging of penile tissue, there are other factors that can trigger impotence or erectile dysfunction symptoms at a younger age.  These include illness such as diabetes, injury or surgery, drug side-effects and smoking.

Blepharoplasty is the medical term for an eyelift. This surgical procedure involves the removal of excess skin and fat from the eyelid and surrounding areas. An Upper Blepharoplasty corrects ‘hooding’ of the upper eye lid, a Lower Blepharoplasty (External Incision) corrects an excess of skin, wrinkles or bags, and a Lower Blepharoplasty (Internal Incision), where a small incision is made on the inside of the lower eyelid, and therefore leaves no visible scar is also used to address bags and excess fat that may be found under the eyes.

Blepharoplasty is an operation that corrects the appearance of “fallen” eyes by removing excess skin and adipose tissue from the area. This has been practiced since the 1970s, with exceptional results for both men and women. This type of procedure is offered by specialized professionals such as Dr Oates from the Academy Day Hospital in Perth who performs eyelid reshaping under a combination of local anesthetic and twilight sedation. The procedure will take between 60-90 minutes and can be performed under general anaesthetic if requested.
