A world traveler, Ray tried all types of remedies - from countless, painful nose strips to nasal mists and pharmaceuticals. Frustrated, he said to his doctor, “Someone should invent something that simply lets you breathe better at night but that you don’t have to keep buying again and again.” “If someone did, they’d make a lot of people happy,” replied Ray’s doctor. Then and there, Ray decided he would be that someone.
Ray knew snoring started with interrupted air intake. Many of us breathe through our mouths when we are sleeping—an inefficient and unhealthy way to get air. We were meant to breathe through our noses. The human body was designed to nose breathe, not to mouth breathe.
Ray made a list of what he wanted from his own invention:
Simple—One easily placed sterling silver nasal dilator.
Compact—Very portable no matter where and how you’re traveling.
Effective—lets you take in more oxygen.
Natural—no drugs or chemicals.
Versatile—can be worn during the day or night.
Economical—a one-time, affordable investment.
Environmentally-friendly—no daily contributions to landfills.
Ray drew up his plans, worked with an experienced fine jeweler
and created the Tru-Breathe nasal dilator.
