Why Cameron Diaz is Wrong About Sleep Divorce!

February 29th, 2024

During a recent interview on the "Lipstick on the Rim" podcast, Cameron Diaz told the hosts that she wants to normalize sleeping in seperate bedrooms or "Sleep Divorce" because her husband, Benji Madden, snores. She is wrong to try to normalize sleeping in seperate bedrooms for several reasons. While many couples struggle with one or both people snoring, sleeping in seperate bedrooms does not have to be the answer. You can stop snoring, improve your physical and mental health and improve your relationship. An oral sleep appliance just might be the solution.

Many individuals suffering from sleep apnea, just live with the problem or often find themselves grappling with the discomfort and noise associated with traditional CPAP machines. The mask and noise emitted by these machines can disturb both the user and their sleep partner, creating an obstacle to restful nights for both. Oral sleep appliances stand out as a safe and comfortable option for individuals seeking relief from sleep apnea and snoring. Their higher compliance rate, when compared to CPAP machines, underscores their effectiveness and user-friendly nature. These appliances have emerged as a remarkable alternative and offer an effective solution for sleep apnea by addressing the comfort and noise-related issues faced by CPAP users.

By opting for an oral sleep appliance and achieving good sleep hygiene, individuals can experience the health benefits of a good night's sleep without sacrificing comfort. Good sleep hygiene has been associated with health benefits such as lower blood pressure, higher testosterone, increased energy, reduced weight, better mental health and overall improved mortality rates. Oral sleep appliances enhance overall patient compliance, contributing to a more seamless, effective and healthy sleep experience for both partners.

For the sleep partners who are experiencing interrupted sleep, an oral sleep appliance for may be a better alternative to a sleep divorce. Health benefits of co-sleeping with a partner include the physical health benefits of less fatigue from falling asleep faster and more REM sleep, as well as the mental health benefits of lower anxiety, stress and depression. In additions, partners who co-sleep release more oxytocin and other "cuddle hormones" that give us good feelings, bring us closer to our partner and enhance our relationship satisfaction.
