When Steve Wick’s wife started elbowing him in the ribs to wake him up during bouts of snoring, he still didn’t think he had a big problem. He blamed his less-than-optimal sleep on Restless Less Syndrome and told his doctor just that. She disagreed and referred him to a sleep specialist for a sleep study.

To his surprise, he was diagnosed with severe sleep apnoea and was prescribed a CPAP machine. Like many others, he soon found the treatment was too intrusive and restricting. It was when his wife announced her pregnancy, and his insurance agent refused to write a life insurance policy based on his sleep apnoea, that Wick decided to explore the other remedies available to sufferers of this condition. Wick’s own story details his improved health after being fitted with a custom oral device.
