Getting Snoring Relief From Your Own Home

Recommend to others!

Many people make fun of people who snore—most often than not, during sleep over or slumber parties, our friends catch video clips or take pictures of those people who snore their hearts out when they sleep. While this can be a hilarious trip for many—the sad thing about this is that snoring is a problem that may lead to some health issues. Stopping the occurrence of snoring should be a priority most especially if snoring distracts you and your roommates from getting an adequate amount of sleep.

Trying out each stop snoring home remedy on this list may help you overcome the problems of snoring and possibly stay away from the long term effects it may put upon your overall health.

One thing you have to remember is that snoring is due to the mechanical obstruction that either our tongue or throat muscles create in our airways. When these mechanical blockages occur, air is hindered from flowing smoothly in and out of our airways—this situation leads to snoring. For this reason we have to understand that a stop snoring home remedy is most often than not targeted at preventing these mechanical obstructions from taking place.

First is to avoid tranquilizers and sedatives—these drugs lead to relaxation of our entire mind and body. This also includes the relaxation of our throat muscles and tongue leading them to slip backwards causing an obstruction. Remember that alcohol and some recreational drugs are also sedating so taking them can make the condition worse.

Steam inhalation is an effective stop snoring home remedy. Doing inhalation before going to bed clears out throat, nose and airway from mechanical obstructions that we might have acquired while eating or simply breathing particles around us. Get a small basin and fill it with water hot enough to produce steam. You may cover yourself with a blanket while doing this to make sure you inhale a good amount of steam.

A nasal strip is also an ideal stop snoring home remedy. Nasal strips act by clearing your nostrils and nasal cavity from particles which may lead to snoring. Try to do this every time you hit the sack to make sure nothing hinders air from flowing freely in and out of your respiratory tract.

Allergies may also contribute to one’s snoring. The thing with allergies is that the chemical mediators in our bloodstream which acts upon entrance of allergens contribute to the narrowing of our airways. This is the reason why when we have an allergic attack, we find it hard to breathe. Taking an antihistamine before you doze off can be a good way of avoiding snoring.

Lastly, and probably the most basic tip which even non-snorers need to be aware of is to get at least eight hours of sleep. Regardless of the age, sex, condition and what not—we have to get this minimum amount of sleep, go to bed and wake up at the same time each day. This keeps our body acquainted with our normal sleep-wake pattern… leading one to avoid the occurrence of this disgusting thing we call snoring.

  1. I have sleep apnea and my girlfriend has developed a few tricks to getting a good times sleep beside me. First of all most people only snore when on their backs. So when I’m drifting off she will ask me (I never remember in the mornings) “Will you roll over?” And I usually do. If not, she gives me a ‘helping hand’ and rolls me on my side or sometimes stomach. In these two positions, I rarely snore. The only problem is I find it incredibly difficult to fall asleep initially on my side. So she must wait until I’m drifting off to do it. You can find loads of sleeping tips in the FREE ebook Get To Sleep Now! at http://www.instantlyfallasleep.com For example, avoid drinking alcohol before bed as it seriously increases the volume of your snoring.
