Stop snoring aids are an effective remedy against snoring. As you're
probably aware, snoring can be an irritating issue not just for the person
suffering from it, but also for people sleeping near by the snorer.


To reduce snoring, it is first ideal to determine the main cause of the
snoring. It can be due to allergies, your sleeping position, alcohol or drug
intake, or a host of other factors related to your nose and throat muscles.
Stop snoring aids are an effective way to help you avoid snoring and get the
right amount of sleep that you need. In this article, we will discuss some of
the more effective snore aids.


                          Stop Snoring Aids - Closed Mouth Devices
                          Closed mouth devices are used to ensure that your
                          mouth doesn't open while you are sleeping. Since
                          the mouth contains more flabby tissue than the
                          nasal passages, it is more likely to trigger snoring.
                          These devices include tapes, strips, chin cushions
                          and chin straps. Chin cushions are placed under
                          the chin to avoid the mouth to open while sleeping
                          (some people have tried securing a tennis ball
                          under your chin while you sleep, or to the back of
                          their pajamas so they can't roll out onto their
                          back). Medical tapes are a cheap but harsh
solution to snoring to ensure your mouth stays closed while sleeping.

within the nose to expand the airway and allow the air to pass effectively.

blockages.

snoring. Some other devices are mandibular advancement device - which

and muscles. Similar to a CPAP device (continuous positive airway
pressure), commonly used for people suffering from sleep apnea.

can be a primary cause of snoring. That is why, it is very ideal use
biofeedback - a device which, when hooked up to the patient, monitors and
sends pulses to body when the person starts to snore. These pulses will
normally cause the snorer to change their sleeping position from their
backs to their sides or front. There are other options to training your body
to sleep on its side; one is a specially designed pillow.

Many people who experience problems with snoring find good results
using acupuncture or hypnosis. Although these methods are not for
everyone, consult your family physician to see if you would be an ideal
candidate. These methods are passive and much less invasive than some of
the other anti snoring devices.

lifestyle choices you make which may be contributing to your snoring.
