The Easy Way to Stop Snoring
When the sound inside your room during the night can cause your partner or the whole neighborhood to stay
awake all night, then you need to take the right action. You need to find ways to stop your snoring problem.
However, before you can stop snoring, there is one thing you need to know: the cause of snoring. Here are
the ways to stop snoring with respect to its causes.
How to stop snoring caused by nasal congestion and allergies?
Snoring occurs when there is an enlargement of adenoids and/or tonsils. And, this is usually the result of
nasal congestion and allergies.
Snoring caused by nasal congestion can be stopped by taking decongestants. You may want to consult your
doctor to know the particular decongestant that is right for your condition. Saltwater nose drops are also
effective to remove nasal congestion. There are commercial saltwater solutions that can be bought at
drugstores but you can also make one for you. Mix ¼ teaspoon of salt to 8 ounces of sterilized water to flush
out the congestion from your nose.
Meanwhile, snoring caused by allergies can be stopped with antibiotics. Normally, when the nasal
congestion or allergies stop, snoring stops too.
How to stop snoring caused by obesity, poor healthy lifestyle, and irregular sleep?
Obesity can cause snoring by blocking your air passage with fat concentration. Also, excess fat can develop
at your stomach that causes your diaphragm to work irregularly. So, the best way to stop snoring that is
caused by obesity is losing weight through regular exercise and proper diet.
Poor healthy lifestyle such as excessive drinking and smoking can trigger snoring. Alcohol causes a partial
collage on your airways (from lungs all the way up to your nose) which can immediately start snoring.
Cigarette smoking on the other hand causes blockage on the small vessels of the lungs and swelling on the
tissue in the throat and mucus membrane in the nose. Both can cause sleep apnea. Avoid excessive intake of
alcohol and excessive cigarette smoking before sleeping.
Irregular sleeping can result to instability in breathing during asleep. So, it is important that you sleep for at
least 7 to 8 hours during the night.
How to stop snoring caused by sleep apnea?
Sleep apnea is a condition characterized by loud snoring with periods of breathing interruptions. These
interruptions are caused by irregular breathing patterns. This results to snoring and poor sleep.
To stop sleep apnea and snoring altogether, you should quit smoking (if you smoke), lose weight (if you are
either obese or overweight), stop using sleeping pills and medications with antihistamines, and stop sleeping
on your back instead, sleep on your side.
Other ways to stop snoring are the use of commercially available anti snoring products such as homeopathic
throat sprays and tablets, throat sprays, sleeping pillows, nasal strips and dilators.
These products may or may not stop your snoring. This is obviously because there are certain reasons as to
why you snore that may not be stopped from the outside. Reasons such as obesity and sleep apnea can be
cured differently (as mentioned above).
If you snore and would like to try any of these products, evaluate first the reason why you snore. Only go for
these products if you think they can help you.
