There are so many cures, remedies and snake oil vendors hocking their wares that supposedly reduce the symptoms of this human ailment. The more a guy like me looks for these important treatments the more solutions turn up and after a while it seems like a cure is waiting behind every blade of grass, and yet the condition continues.
The problem with many of these devices and treatments is that they have not been well researched and often have varying degrees of effectiveness depending on whose opinion you are receiving. There are some more effective ways of treating this condition that have widespread benefits because they treat the condition holistically.
Of course, there are no cut and dry cures for every person and many of these treatments and methods of curing snoring can be combined for maximum effectiveness.
Lifestyle changes to help you Stop Snoring
Lose Weight and Get Some Exercise
Regularly increasing your breathing rate and losing some extra pounds are the best way to effect this change. Weight loss will also clear up some of the fatty tissue at the back of the throat that reverberates in your sleep.
Quit Alcohol, Tobacco and other Drugs
Smoking irritates and inflames the tissues of the respiratory passages, especially in the nose and throat. By cutting back on this habit you can reduce the amount of obstructions that contribute to this sleeping condition.
Alcohol can relax the muscles of the back of the throat, which are hard to exercise as it is, this makes them yet another obstruction to resonate with the passage of breath. Certain prescription pills will put you in a sleep that encourages prolonged snoring, which should cause you to wake up.
Finetune Your Sleeping Habits
Make your bedtime ritual a bit more conducive to a good night’s sleep. There are many ways that you can significantly increase the quality and duration of your sleep. Begin by regularly turning in at the same time, shutting off garish electric lights in lieu of softer lights even candles and even turning off the TV and other electronic displays for a full half hour before sleeping.
By increasing the quality of your sleeping patterns you will improve your breathing and depth of sleep, making it less likely for you to sleep through prolonged bouts of snoring.
In Addition to the aforementioned methods and treatments, those suffering from a snoring condition could recommend their bedfellows wear an anti snoring device, this will keep the airways clear and minimize the occurrence of snoring.
