Do you ever find yourself breathing through your mouth? While it seems harmless, this could be a sign of a much larger issue.

Our bodies are designed to breathe through the nose for several reasons. The nasal structure allows oxygen to pass through at the optimal rate. Hairs trap bacteria from getting into the bloodstream. So when this process is thrown off by mouth breathing, a large amount of stress is put on the body.

Many individuals end up developing sleep apnea. This is a serious disorder that causes stops in breathing at night. Sleep apnea leads to conditions such as high blood pressure and weight gain, not to mention problems in your personal life. Individuals who suffer from sleep apnea are typically not well rested and some even experience falling asleep during the day.

A major symptom to look out for is frequent, loud snoring. Other patients report rapidly waking up at night. If you think you may be suffering from sleep apnea, it’s a good idea to be evaluated by a professional.
