More than 2000 years ago,the author of Ecclesiastes lamented that “there is nothing new under the sun,” so we shouldn’t be surprised that many of the things we think are new are actually old inventions. Sometimes, though, this insight can be very valuable.
Take, for example, the story of Judy Challan, an Australian woman who, in 1971, invented an anti-snoring pillow. Although this pillow went into widespread production and was sold internationally, it didn’t become a worldwide phenomenon.
Looking at the story of this woman’s pillow, though, has two lessons for us. First, it reminds us that an anti-snoring pillow is unlikely to be effective at snoring relief. Second, it tells us that a truly effective snoring solution might need to be custom and can’t be bought off the rack.
At the Advanced Dental Sleep Treatment Center of Omaha, we encourage people to seek professional help for snoring rather than buying a snoring solution that isn’t made for you and is unlikely to provide relief.
