Snoring cures can be as simple or as complex as you can stand them to be. I personally prefer simple, safe, and inexpensive! While every case of snoring is unique, it’s very possible to treat and cure the problem using very simple folk remedies you’ve probably heard of before, but never really considered. Where do you start?
Your lifestyle plays a big role in the severity of your snoring. If you are overweight, your risk of snoring is greatly increased due to excess neck tissue. It’s amazing how much you can improve snoring, and overall health, just by a 10% reduction in weight.Since most snoring occurs in the throat, sleeping on your back can make the condition worse. During sleep, your jaw becomes slack and the supine position may cause your tongue, uvula, and/or tonsils to rub against each other. This causes a vibration, which is heard as snoring.
Simple diet changes that you can start implementing today can have a profound impact on the severity of snoring. They also go hand in hand with weight loss. For example, sedatives may help you fall asleep faster, but did you know that they can also suppress your breathing and cause (or worsen) snoring? It’s been said before but it bears repeating avoid alcohol and other sedatives before bedtime.
If your snoring is originating from your nose, nasal strips may be an option for you. Nasal strips are small pieces of adhesive that fit on the bridge of your nose. These strips act in a lifting motion, raising your nostrils, allowing air to flow unobstructed though your nasal passages. Note that most snoring doesn’t actually occur in the nose.Snoring cures can be as simple as changing your sleeping position, improving your dietary habits, making simple lifestyle changes, or buying a pack of nasal strips.You don’t have to spend a ton of money or undergo dangerous surgery. With some consistency and flexibility, you (and your partner) can have a peaceful night’s rest and you can kiss snoring goodbye.
