It happens each and every year. This year, I’m going to do it! A year passes and nothing changes. Your plans to start working out consistently have fallen through. It’s tough to find the time with how busy work is, with taking care of two beautiful kids, and with wanting to have a little time […]
Spring has finally arrived—though it didn’t come alone. With it comes warmer temperatures, more insect activity, and more greenery blooming all around. Departing the cold, harsh winter months, it’s a welcome sight – for some of us.
For those suffering from allergic reactions, spring isn’t as sweet of a season. Due to Houston’s shorter, milder winters, our Texas flora and fauna bloom sooner in the year. With our high Gulf Coast humidity, we’re also prone to higher fungal exposure.
As adults, we’re used to the ups and downs of our seasonal allergies, but our children need better-informed parents to help manage symptoms and avoid allergy triggers. After all, nothing’s quite as pitiful as a child suffering from the inconsolable symptoms of seasonal allergies. In our blog post, we’ll give you some insights to help your children weather Houston’s notorious spring allergies.
After planning your exotic vacation for months, the big day has finally arrived. You’ve finished packing and now it’s time to leave the house and head to the airport. After a long flight with a couple of connections, you arrive at your hotel utterly exhausted. Tomorrow, you’ll start exploring the sights but tonight’s for recharging the batteries. After getting in bed, you quickly realize that none of the pillows the hotel has provided you with are comfortable. They just don’t feel like the pillow you use at home. What was supposed to be a restful night has turned into one of tossing-and-turning. We’ve all been there.
Is your partner’s snoring and sleep apnea causing a little bit of trouble in paradise? When their house-shaking Zs are causing the both of you to wake up feeling grumpy and sleep-deprived, it’s time to call in the professionals. A sleep study can help your partner’s doctor figure out exactly what’s causing their sleep condition in order to find the best solution for his or her needs. Now, convincing them to participate in a sleep study? Sometimes that’s easier said than done. We’ll give you a few tips to help you persuade that special someone in your life to take back their sleep—so you can both rest easy.
If you get enough sleep (we highly recommend it!), you spend an average of eight hours snoozing away per night. That means you could spend approximately one-third of your life in bed. While we all need rest, we sleep in different ways. In this blog post, we’ll look at the most popular sleep positions and what they say about you. Does your sleep position match your personality? Let us know!
The telltale signs are all there—the sore, scratchy throat; the relentless facial pain; the classic headache; and the dreaded nasal congestion. For some of you readers, this list of symptoms is all too familiar to you. Yep, it’s the beastly sinus infection. We’ve gathered a list of seven struggles that will make all sinus-problem sufferers laugh…and then cry. But don’t worry. We know how relatable (and miserable) these struggles are, so when you’re done reading this blog post, you can schedule an appointment to say “sayonara” to your frequent sinus infections.
It’s the most wonderful time of the year. (We bet that song is stuck in your head now…oops.) The weather is finally cooling down, the holidays are among us (are you ready for the in-laws to come into town?), and the rich aroma of baked-with-love goodies fills the house. The holidays bring cozy days full […]
Trick-or-treat, smell my feet, give me something good to eat! Do you remember how funny this little jingle used to be as a kid? If you have kids, they probably love it as much as you did back in the day. A couple of days ago, we celebrated Halloween—the spookiest and most ghastly holiday of them all. But Halloween is about more than just jack-o-lanterns and scary costumes. It’s about candy. Mounds and mounds of glorious goodness! As adults, we know that candy isn’t the most nutritious of snacks. Regardless, the excitement that kids feel while trick-or-treating is priceless. It’s no surprise that Americans spend $6 billion each year on Halloween. That makes it our second-largest commercial holiday.
When it’s 11 PM and your child is still bouncing off the walls (for the fifth night in a row), you know something’s gotta change. Your kid might be the cutest, sweetest, most adorable baby on the planet, but you and that baby both desperately need sleep. That’s right, it’s time to implement a sleep […]

At the Pasha Snoring & Sinus Center, we take great pride in providing long-term solutions for snoring, sleep apnea, allergies, and sinus-related disorders.

Better yet, have you ever snored in public? We’ll take a look at five of the most embarrassing spots to be caught sno
