With all the craze lately about Positional Sleep Therapy, you might have been starting to wonder what’s it all about. It’s actually quite simple when you think about it. Positional Sleep Therapy is all about training your body to sleep on its side. By sleeping on one’s side you can open the airways and prevent both snoring and Obstructive Sleep Apnea. The reasons you should switch almost always come down to these 5 reasons.
It’s super cheap when compared to a CPAP
When a CPAP can cost up to $3000, why would you choose that over the SlumberBUMP which is priced at an affordable $69.99? Cost can be a huge factor in today’s society. It’s important to keep in mind alternative (and better) solutions that can be much cheaper that the one usually recommended.
Using a SlumberBUMP is temporary
Most people only end up using the SlumberBUMP for 30-60 days until side-sleeping feels natural. Compare this to a CPAP or a mouthpiece that you may never have to stop wearing and it’s pretty obvious why Positional Sleep Therapy has the advantage. As long as the person continues to sleep on their side they will continue to see the great benefits of Positional Sleep Therapy.
You can bring it with you when you travel
Unlike the CPAP, the SlumberBUMP is a breeze to carry around. Plus, you don’t have to worry about it breaking. I’d be very surprised if somebody’s SlumberBUMP broke while traveling, meanwhile, I wouldn’t be surprised at all if one of the many parts in someone’s CPAP broke.
Positional Sleep Therapy is 10x more comfortable
Noise, straps, and the constant reminder you have mask on your face are just a few of the reasons the CPAP is impossible to sleep with. On the other hand, many people find that after those initial weeks of adjustment, the SlumberBUMP is more comfortable to sleep with than without. While the SlumberBUMP does have a strap, it’s only one and it’s not on your face. If you find a CPAP without too many straps then you run the risk of it not completely sealing and being worthless.
It’s GREAT for your back
It should be pretty common knowledge by now that sleeping on your stomach destroys your vertebrae. For those who sleep on their stomach, Positional Sleep Therapy can be their saving grace. Side sleeping is one of the best positions for one’s back.
