Gere Addresses Snoring Problem With Horrific Sleep Device

Movie star RICHARD GERE has started strapping on a curious sleep device in a bid to stop snoring. The actor checked into a New York "sleep clinic" for the night to allow experts to monitor his sleeping, so he could control his snoring problem and they suggested he try revolutionary new headgear that reminds him of the horrific torture devices used in disturbing cult movie A Clockwork Orange. Gere says, "This is a device that fits in your mouth... It forces (your jaw) open and forward, so that your throat stays open, and it's horrific. "I haven't slept in six months because I have this thing in." But the effort Gere is putting in has impressed his sleepdeprived wife, Carey Lowell. He adds, "It got to the point where she wasn't getting any sleep... so I actually told her one day, `Look, I'm gonna go to the sleep clinic,' and she started crying because she was so happy that I was gonna do something about this."

Dear Mr. Gere, Snoring can be a symptom of a more serious and can be a deadly problem. Sleep apnea. Your device sounds horrific but there is a much more pleasant way to go. It is the CPAP machine that forces air into your lungs through a measured output and programed device with a mask over your nose that prevents mouth breathing and therefore prevents snoring by keeping all airways clear and open without discomfort. Snoring and sleep apnea (when your air passages are closed as a result of snoring) one can stop breathing all together and damage internal organs, brain cells, etc..Millions of people have this problem that is easily solved with a continuous air pressure device that will make you sleep like a baby and also your mate. No separate bedrooms needed. Sleep deprivation results in lethargy, fatigue, foggy mind, and falling asleep in an instant in the most unusual places. I highly recommend it and so does my spouse!!
