eBooks- the View from SOAS- Joanna Tate
An overview of current subscriptions and practises at the School of Oriental and African Studies, by Joanna Tate, Subject Librarian - Politics and Economics

  • I have barely snored at all! My girlfriend was starting to put pressure on me to have an operation to stop my snoring, but to be totally honest I was scared stiff. I've heard some horror stories and there was no way I wanted to take on that risk. Then I found your website and since putting your techniques into practice I have barely snored at all. My girlfriend can't believe how effective this has been. ➤➤ https://bit.ly/37PhtTN

  • If only we knew about this 10 years ago! I wasted a ton of money on garbage 'stop snoring' products like mouth guards, throat sprays, lozenges and nasal strips, to name just a few! None of them worked. My doctor explained to me that the only way I was going to fix my snoring was with an operation, although he did say it was a last resort. I am so glad I didn't risk it because after finding your program my snoring has considerably decreased! If only I knew about this 10 years ago! ★★★ http://t.cn/AigiCT7Q

  • My partner says the difference is incredible! My partner has probably punched me a hundred times to get me to roll over and stop snoring. I have been using your techniques recently and now my partner has told me that the difference is incredible. But what has amazed me the most is how much better and more energetic I now feel after a good night's sleep! Thank you so much! ➤➤ http://ishbv.com/snoringno/pdf
