Dev, Dev - 01/13/2014

As a victim of snrinog and sleep apnoea I understand the problem. It's not easy,two years ago I started designing my sleep assist pillow. It works for me, I have taken a holistic approach to sleep. I have had about 85% plus positive results. Not only is my snrinog under control, I have not had a sleep apnoea for about 15 months. I continue to use the pillow. If there is anything I can do to help let me know.
