Snoring Remedies To Try

Mouthpiece For SnoringThe health market is overloaded with devices that promise to get rid of snoring. But the big question is do they really work. Equally important question is if they are better than traditional solutions.

Snoring is a common problem that many people face behind closed bedroom doors. It is estimated that around 40% of men frequently snore. But this problem does not affect males only. Statistics show that 28% women snore too.

Snoring usually happens when air causes vibrations in the nasal passages or in the throat area. Among other reasons, some everyday habits, such as smoking and alcohol drinking, can also be the cause of noise. And if you have extra pounds, especially around your neck, you will most likely snore.

Before you begin searching for the cure, you must find out what type of a snorer you are. In other words, you must find out if snoring is coming from your throat or your nose. Here is how to find out:

Stick your tongue out as far as your can. Now hold it between your teeth. Next, try to create a snoring noise. If you can, your snoring is coming from your throat, where your tongue is obstructing the air flow. On the other hand, people who can snore with their mouth closed are nose snorers.

Once you know what is causing your snoring, you can start your search for the best remedy for you.

You can first try to sleep on your side. The explanation is that when you lie on your back, the tongue and throat muscles fall back, restricting the airway and triggering snoring. Unfortunately,

most people tend to avoid sleeping on their side, waking their partner.

Next, natural thing your to-do list would be lose weight (I know this can be difficult, but it is still worth trying) and stopping smoking and drinking alcohol drinks.

If you are a mouth snorer, you can try a chin-up strip. It should force you to sleep with your mouth closed and encourage you to breathe through the nose. The downside is that you will look like a Hannibal Lecter.

Another thing you can try would be a mouthpiece for snoring. There are a few of these products available on the market. The main types are described here:



Some other things you can experiment with are anti snoring pillows, and sprays. They work for some people, but what I found is that their success rate is very low.
