What do you think of when you hear the term “ airway health ”? If you’re like us, it may be something you haven’t thought about for most of your life but, chances are, if it is not affecting you personally, airway health is affecting someone close to you. While most often associated with sleep issues such as snoring or obstructive sleep apnea , poor airway health can be the culprit behind conditions such as chronic fatigue, excess weight gain, headaches, behavioral issues in children, just to name a few. You may be surprised to learn that many common medical conditions can be caused by airway disorders. More surprisingly, there are shockingly few practitioners who consider the airway when treating these conditions. Let’s dig into what causes airway disorders, how they can affect us, and why they’ve been so overlooked by modern medicine.
Improving airway health is a key focus of REMastered sleep and the REMplenish™ water bottle.
The REMplenish™ proprietary nozzle makes improving airway health easy by integrating concepts of myofunctional therapy into the everyday convenience of drinking water. Through targeted upper airway exercise and repetitive swallowing, REMplenish™ tightens the soft tissues of the soft palate and throat to reduce vibration and airway collapsibility during sleep. Simply drinking 1-2, 25 oz bottles daily, strengthens the airway dilator muscles including the tongue’s genioglossus muscle. A key benefit of using REMplenish™ is that it promotes proper tongue position, with both the front and back of the tongue lightly suctioned to the roof of the mouth. Proper tongue position promotes nasal breathing and stabilizes the jaw, reducing the risk of the tongue falling back into the airway during sleep. The ease of drinking water with REMplenish™ makes it a preferred option for improving airway health leading to better sleep and more daytime energy.
Today, the standard care has evolved well beyond what we had become accustomed to. The silent attackers to life and longevity: heart disease, stroke, mental agility, and total body inflammation, are rooted in both periodontal disease and airway health. Understanding the relationship between multiple body systems and their connection to one another demonstrates how two unrelated adjuncts, MyPerioPath® and REMplenish™, can have a profound effect on improving the long-term health of our patients.
