Airway Is Life:

The Book Your Family
Needs to Read Today

Featured Live in :

We’ve all seen the news. Americans are getting more prone to heart disease, high blood pressure, stroke, diabetes, cancer, obesity, and Alzheimer’s. Why are all of these seemingly unrelated conditions getting so common? Is it pollution? Maybe the foods we eat? Could it be screens? Or is it just an unavoidable consequence of modern life and work?

In her new book, Airway is Life, Dr. Dassani introduces readers to the common thread that unites all of these issues:

Lack of sleep, especially from sleep-disordered breathing (SDB).

When a person’s sleep breathing is difficult, they wake over and over again throughout the night. In the morning, they won’t remember these frequent awakenings, but the lack of sleep has damaged their mind and body. Treating SDB prevents future damage, reverses some of the past damage, and saves lives.


  • What sleep is, and how it affects our physical and mental processes
  • What happens when we don’t sleep, both in the short-term and long-term
  • How SDB presents in a variety of ages and lifestyles
  • What you can do to improve your family’s sleep, get their SDB treated, and restore their health

Airway is Life is essential reading for parents wondering why their kids struggle with academics, behavior, and issues like bedwetting. It’s important for spouses who are trying to figure out if snoring is really that big a deal. It’s life-changing for anyone who has hit middle age, is starting to rack up health problems, and wonders why they can’t seem to lose weight no matter how hard they try. Sleep breathing is the key to a healthy life, and when you can’t breathe, you can’t heal.

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.

Your Family’s Physical and Mental Health is Too Important to Wait Sleep-disordered breathing affects the body, by preventing it from getting the healing rest it needs. It affects the emotions, by reducing emotional control and making people more prone to depression. It affects the mind, by making it harder to learn new things and to remember the past. Every night that you, your child, or your spouse loses sleep because of breathing issues is a night of lost opportunities and lost lifespan. This book will give you the tools you need to get a diagnosis, access treatments that reopen the airway and save lives.


Your family and friends need your help to breathe and sleep.
