Breath-Taking at Night

with Carole Freeman

$37 More Info

Welcome to Breath-Taking at Night

You’d be shocked at how many health disorders are related to, if not caused by, faulty breathing during sleep. While many people feel there’s nothing they can do about snoring or waking frequently at night, they’d be just a surprised to know there’s more you can do about it than you think.

What I'm asking you to do today, is to at least consider the possibility that a poor nights' sleep may be a significant aggravating factor, that could lead to, significant disruption in one's mental health and certain physical health conditions. You and I know that you can’t possibly have your highest brain power, do your best performance and function at your highest level when you are chronically fatigued and drained from lack of deep restful sleep.

Take the Quiz below to see if you may have a Sleep/Breathing Dysfunction:

______Do you have trouble falling asleep, or have trouble getting back to sleep once you wake up in the middle of the night

______Have you been diagnosed with Obstructive Sleep Apnea

______Do you drink alcohol at night before bed

______Do you have to get up multiple times a night to urinate

______Do you have a dry mouth in the morning

______Do you sleep with your mouth open

______Are you fatigued in the morning

______Do you rarely feel truly well rested

______Do you wake up frequently in the middle of the night

______Do you consider yourself a ‘light sleeper’

______Do you snore

______Do you have a stuffy nose

______Do you eat within 2 hours of going to bed

______Do you wake up sweaty or have hot flashes

If you answered YES to Any of the above symptoms, you likely have a Breathing Dysfunction at Night.


It is not manditory, by highy recommended that you complete The Breath-Taking Basic couse prior to attending this course, as it covers the basic information you are expected to be familiar with.
