Snoring Remedies That Actually Work
How to stop someone from snoring?
Snoring usually occurs when the airflow is constricted. This is something that we are able to prevent when we are awake but not when we are fast asleep. So if you have snoring problems or want to stop someone from snoring we suggest you take a hot shower before you go to bed and use saltwater nose rinse. This combination will keep your passages clear and give you a good quiet night sleep.
Change Sleeping Position
There are some sleeping positions that go hand in hand with snoring. The most famous one is lying on your back. This way your soft palate and your tongue are pressed against the back of your throat. You know the results of this, and if you don’t we will tell you, snoring! This is especially frustrating if the one snoring is your spouse or a roommate. So, if you want to stop someone from snoring tell them to use a full length body pillow to help them sleep on their side.
Drink Lots of Fluids
Stay hydrated, drink lots of fluids especially water. If you are dehydrated, your mouth and your nose are sticky which leads to, let me remind you one more time, snoring.
Cocktails may help you unwind, but they will not help your significant other, or with other words, the person that you share a bed with. Alcohol makes our muscles relaxed and our natural defense against airway obstruction is weaker than usual. Again, this will result in more snoring than usual.
Open Your Nasal Passages
If your snoring is a result of your nose and not your soft palate, then you can use adhesive nasal strips. They have been proven very effective since they lift and open nasal passages.
Again, if the reason of you snoring is the blockage of your nasal paths then you can start using nasal spray. It may help you open up the passages.
If your room is dry and warm then as you sleep you increase the risk of congestion. Put a humidifier next to your bed and this might help you reduce your snoring.
Snoring is a huge problem. If your snoring is minor then you have no problem but if it is not than it can affect your relationship or your job. If you have tried something that is not on this list feel free to share it in the comment section.
