Snoring Remedies and Snoring Facts


The day has ended and the moon shines on the dark velvet night. You gently close your eyes slowly drifting to sleep when suddenly, Zzzzzzzzzzzz. That sound is definitely not music to your or anybody else’s ears!

That sound (that you can’t get out of your head now!) is the nocturnal serenade so many of us play on a nightly basis; snoring.

It’s not only that the noise bothers both the snorer and their partner (if you are like me the noise wakes me up!) but the fact that snoring can affect the whole family because the annoying sound reverberates all throughout the household, especially during the night when things are pretty quiet. However, and more importantly, snoring can be harmful to one’s health in the long run, which is why many individuals are looking for the best snoring remedy that is available.

Some snoring remedies include:

  1. nose strips
  2. special pillows
  3. dental appliances
  4. acupuncture
  5. hypnosis

There are many snoring remedies out in stores. Snoring aids and sleep aids are available at reasonable prices, but if you’ve been snoring for some time, it may be time to seek professional help, as your snoring may be a symptom of sleep apnea.

Sleep apnea is a serious condition that requires professional help. People actually die from this condition due to the sudden cessation of breathing during sleep which causes strain on the heart. If you think you have sleep apnea you need to seek medical advice immediately and get an overnight sleep apnea test.

I sing seriously to my mom on the phone. To put her to sleep, I have to sing ‘Maria’ from West Side Story. When I hear her snoring, I hang up.

Causes of Snoring

The causes of snoring vary from one individual to another. Some snore because they are overweight, while others claim that they snore because of certain types of foods they eat. If you’re overweight, one of the things you need to consider is losing some weight. This will come with many other benefits apart from reducing or eliminating your snoring. A change in lifestyle is the best solution if lifestyle is the cause of your weight, although it might be difficult at first, you will get used to it after some time.

The sleeping position may also trigger snoring. Sleeping with your mouth open, or lying on your back are common causes of snoring. There are sleeping devices that you can use at night to support the jaw and that will keep your mouth closed. Others lie on their side to avoid snoring. I have used many of these devices but some can be very uncomfortable. You will need to try some out before you find one that suits you.

You can also inhale steam before you go to sleep. Your nasal passages will open up, and you will find it easier to breathe. You can also use a system of air filtration that will not only filter our allergens like pet hair, dust, and cigarette smoke but will usually help in opening the nasal passages also.

People are always looking for the best way to stop snoring. To completely stop snoring is quite impossible, but remedies can lessen the ‘snoring scenario’ every night. There is no best among the best; all you can do is find the best remedy that will work for you.

Consult your doctor first before you use any special device. Seeking medical help is the best way to deal with excessive snoring.

How Can Sleep Apnea Dentists Help?

Sleep Apnea is a condition caused by a lack of air passing through to the lungs during sleep; it is an episode that lasts for more than 10 seconds. This deficiency of air leads to a decreased saturation of oxygen levels in the blood, which results in oxygen deprivation of the brain and other bodily tissues, known as Hypoxia. In order to normalize blood oxygen levels, the brain instructs a micro awakening and commands the body to reopen the airways. The person wakes up for a short time and commences breathing, often noisily at first, and then falls back to sleep. Quite often, the person has no memory of these micro-awakenings in the morning.
