Official NFAA Review

Snoring may be a sign of serious underlying sleep issues. Find a sleep specialist.

This is one of the various conclusions drawn by Dr. Meghna Dassani, DMD, in her new book Airway Is Life. Humans, she says, spend approximately one-third of their lives asleep, and this makes us blind to its “ubiquity and life-supporting role in our everyday lives”. As to her purpose in writing this book, she mentions that she is “passionate about making sure that people know about the importance of sleep.” There is no doubt that throughout the pages of this book her passion for helping people to seek help for their sleep disorders is sincere and palpable.

It’s important to the author to let her readers know that Sleep Disordered Breathing (SDB) is a legitimate public health crisis that is both treatable and preventable. Dr. Dassani follows up that warning by admonishing which professionals to go to for assistance with this potentially life-threatening issue, providing details of what to expect during such a conversation, including what to do if a health care provider doesn’t take a patient’s concerns seriously.

Also included are practical, at-home steps available to those who suffer from SDB–monitoring sleep patterns using a fitness tracker, as well as establishing a healthy bedtime routine to take back control of one’s sleep issues.

“Become a healthy sleep evangelist!” is the last suggestion given by Dr. Dassani. In keeping with that phrase, Airway Is Life could be considered her ‘gospel’. There are many useful and practical points in this book that will no doubt be of great assistance and relief to many who, knowingly or unknowingly, suffer from sleep disorders.

Sleep Soundly, Live Longer

Unlocking the Key to a Healthier, Disease-Free Life

The prevalence of various health conditions such as heart disease, high blood pressure, stroke, diabetes, cancer, obesity, and Alzheimer’s has been on the rise among Americans. While these conditions might seem unrelated, there is a common factor that connects them all, as explained by Dr. Meghna Dassani in her book Airway is Life.

According to Dr. Dassani, the root cause of these health issues is lack of sleep, particularly due to sleep-disordered breathing (SDB). When you experience difficulties in your breathing during sleep, you end up waking repeatedly throughout the night. Although you might not recall these awakenings in the morning, the cumulative effect of sleep deprivation takes a toll on your physical and mental well-being.

However, there is a solution to help you positively impact your overall well-being.

By treating SDB you will:

  • Prevent future damage: If sleep-disordered breathing (SDB) is treated, further damage to the body and mind caused by lack of sleep can be prevented, reducing the risk of developing or exacerbating associated health conditions
  • Reverse past damage: Adequate and restful sleep allows the body and mind to heal, promoting overall health and well-being.
  • Improve physical health: By addressing SDB, individuals can significantly improve their overall physical health and reduce the likelihood of developing severe medical conditions.
  • Enhance mental well-being: Restorative sleep plays a crucial role in maintaining optimal mental health, hence healthier sleep patterns help improve mood, enhanced mental clarity, better focus, and an overall sense of well-being.
  • Improve the quality of life: By obtaining restful sleep, individuals may experience increased energy levels, improved productivity, better concentration, and a greater ability to engage in daily activities.
  • Promote long-term health benefits: Individuals can significantly reduce their long-term health risks by effectively treating SDB and prioritizing healthy sleep habits.

Erika Gray

Airway is life is a book I wish I would have gotten my hands on long before having children. Such valuable information can change one’s life. My journey with questioning sleep issues began with my twelve-year-old son who was still wetting the bed at night. We tried no drinks after a certain time, diet change, and chiropractic care and nothing seemed to help. After much research, I learned about obstructed airways and my son seemed to have all the symptoms. I immediately looked for a provider in my area. Expanding his airway was the missing piece. My other children are now also having their airway expanded so they too can experience the beauty of healthy sleep. I am grateful to have found Dr. Dassani as she has impacted our lives with her care and wealth of knowledge.
