What is Snoring?
Snoring is one of the most annoying and disruptive sleep behaviors. This can cause people to be tired, grumpy, confused during waking hours as well as have difficulty concentrating on tasks while at work or school.
How Snoring occurs?
Snoring occurs when you breathe in through your nose and air travels along a tube that leads from your mouth back into your throat before continuing down into the lungs where it then exits out again via an opening near your collarbones (called a “breathing valve”). When snorers’ throats are closed off by tissue passing over this breathing passage they often startle themselves awake which causes them to stop breathing for brief periods resulting in gasps-and thus what we know as snores!
Natural methods to stop Snoring naturally
The natural methods to stop Snoring naturally are:
Elevate the Head of Your Bed
Many people suffer from sleep apnea, but they don’t realize that one simple change could help them be more rested and alert during their waking hours- elevate your head on a pillow or mattress to combat this condition!
Sleep on Your Side
Sleeping on your side is one of the best ways to stop snoring naturally. When you sleep in this position, less air travels through your throat, and as a result, it often prevents an obstruction from occurring when the pressure becomes too high for soft tissue to withstand. At night, while you are sleeping restfully and peacefully in your bed on your side with the head of it elevated for optimum airflow through the nose or mouth.
Avoid Alcohol and Sedatives Before Bed
Avoid alcohol and sedatives before going to sleep because these can lead to snoring issues such as a blocked nasal passage that leads into swollen throat passages causing vibrations from vocal cords which we all know is not very pleasant sounding!
Heal Injuries and Fix the Anatomical Abnormalities
Make sure after any injury fix anatomical abnormalities so they don’t affect breathing at night. Burning, throbbing pain. No relief in sight. You’re desperate for a solution to the problem- and fast!
Itchiness? Constant coughing? Difficulty breathing at night due to anatomical abnormalities like collapsed airways or an enlarged tongue which blocks your throat passage – these are all common problems that will not go away without some form of treatment from trained professionals such as ear, nose, and throat specialists (ENTs).
As sufferers know firsthand, it is hard enough when you have one injury but if I had two injuries on top of each other how would they affect me even more than just having my original illness alone?! It’s always wise to put out any fire before there can be another crisis situation waiting around the corner.
Treat Your Chronic Allergies
Treat chronic allergies by avoiding pollen during daytime hours when possible (like take allergy medication). When pollen counts are high, it is best to avoid the outdoors as much as possible. This can be done by taking medication like Claritin-D and Allegra D during daytime hours if you suffer from allergies.
Use of CPAP Machine can help stop snoring
Use CPAP machines if necessary with anti-snore devices attached like chinstraps, jaw guards etc., do this also if experiencing problems due to deviated septum too big.
