Tips To Stop Snoring For Good

By Bill Dexter

If you, or someone that you know, suffers from nighttime snoring they are likely to experience a restless night's sleep whether or not they realize it. In addition, their family may also be suffering from loss of sleep due to the distraction.

There are many remedies available, which are said to cure snoring. However, before doing anything drastic or deciding to undergo surgery, perhaps there are some tips that may help either you or your loved one curb snoring and start to have a restful night's sleep.

One of the most common reasons that people snore are because they sleep on their back and the fatty tissue in their throat relaxes and causes air passages to be blocked. Therefore, if the individual who suffers from snoring will try sleeping on their side, they may find some relief. One way to achieve this is by having the sufferer turn over on his/her side and place a large body pillow flat on the bed and against the subject. When he/she attempts to roll over on their back, they will find it difficult due to the presence of the pillow. In addition, there are special pillows that are designed to help those who snore.

The next tip to stop snoring is to do everything possible to avoid or correct allergy problems. Many things contribute to allergies, such as dust, cigarette smoke, pets, etc. In addition to allergies, colds and other sinus infections are known to promote snoring. Some cold and allergy medicines are available over the counter and may offer relief or, if other health problems are present, a physician should be consulted.

Obesity, another one of the most common reasons that people snore, should be corrected for many reasons. In addition to heart health and overall wellness, obesity allows the fatty tissue in the throat to relax during sleep and block the air passages of the throat. This occurrence is thought to cause snoring. Therefore, it is advisable to lose weight with the help of a supervised medical diet. While bettering your health, try to also avoid alcohol and cigarette smoke if possible because both are thought to induce snoring.

In more serious situations, where snoring cannot be corrected individually, the sufferer may decide to undergo surgery as a last resort. This may include procedures that include the removal or tonsils or the complete restructure of the mouth or jaws.

Finally, don't discount non-invasive, inexpensive solutions out of hand. Although there are many "iffy" and unproven products on the market, there are some that are getting a lot of praise from users too. Chin straps have gotten a lot of press in the last year along with thousands of testimonials from users who claim to have ended their snoring completely the first night of use.

The chin strap solution simply keeps your jaw firmly and correctly positioned up and back and, with continued use, has been reported to actually re-train the muscles in the jaw and throat to remain closed. This is the best news open mouth snorers have ever received given that the alternative is invasive, expensive surgery.
