Even if you think it’s not possible to stop snoring naturally, please take a time to read this article before considering using surgery, dental implants or drugs. I have many suggestions for ways to control snoring without spending any money and a suggestion for how to stop snoring completely for a modest investment.
First here are some stop snoring tips. Sometimes these tips on their own are enough to make a significant impact on your snoring problems. Try them all to see what works best for you.
Did you know that eating dairy products, especially at night, causes build up of mucus which can cause congestion in your airways? Try cutting down your consumption of milk, cheese and other dairy products to see if this helps reduce snoring. You may have to do this for a week or so to notice any difference.
Elevate your head while asleep. This is as simple as putting extra pillows under your head which can help keep the airways open. Use firm pillows; soft ones will not work as well.
Nasal congestion, a prime cause of mouth breathing and snoring, can be eased by using a humidifier. This puts moisture back into the air and makes breathing through your nose much easier. This works well in dry climates and winter when the air is dry.
Keep away from alcohol. Alcohol can relax the throat muscles which narrows your breathing passages. This also applies to sleeping drugs. If you have slept apnea (apnea snoring) taking sleeping drugs is dangerous as you need to awaken partially to resume breathing.
If you are overweight you can lose it, it’s as simple as that. Being overweight can lead to an increase in fatty tissue in the throat which can cause snoring, sleep apnea and a host of other health problems
Sleeping on your back can cause the tongue to fall back into the throat, one of the prime snoring causes. How can you make sure you sleep on your side? Use a body pillow wedged against your back to stop you from rolling over.
If these tips don’t help you control your habit, I would strongly advise exercises to stop snoring. These easy exercises strengthen the muscles around the throat, jaw and tongue and prevent tissue collapsing into the throat. In my opinion, they are the best way to stop snoring naturally. The exercises will help you to breathe easily which in turn will increase your oxygen intake, improving your health and vitality too.
