Natural Remedies to Help You Stop Snoring

Is your snoring waking you or your spouse up? Are you being kicked out of your bedroom because of your loud snoring? If so then this article is designed to help you out. Did you know that if you snore at night, during the day you can experience several health issues. Such as headaches, poor concentration, chronic drowsiness, you can become very irritable as well as forgetful, you can even find yourself randomly falling asleep and more. Below are a few natural and home remedies to help you stop snoring and get back in your comfortable bed where you belong.

1. Maintain a Healthy Lifestyle

It has been said by several scientists that the heavier a person is, then the louder their snoring can actually be. This is due to a fatty tissue that tends to build up on the back of the throat, so trying to lose a few pounds here and there can cut back your snoring in no time.

2. Try Not to Sleep Flat on Your Back

Doctors seem to find a reason to not do anything these days, even reasons on why you should not sleep this way or that way. For example sleeping on your back has pros as well as cons, for a con, sleeping on your back can create snores, this is from you breathing through your mouth at a relaxed state sending the air flow as it goes in and out to vibrate, which is the snore; So if you sleep on your back stuff a pillow between your legs and lay on your tummy or even your side.

3. Stay Away From Alcohol and  Sedatives

When it comes to popping the top off of a nice ice cold beer, there does not seem to be much of anything better, it does help with sleep by relaxing the muscles in the body, but it makes your body so comfortable it also relaxes the muscles in the mouth as well as the throat, causing you to snore even if you do not snore in the first place. The best suggestion to tame this added snoring is to try to avoid alcohol at least 4-6 hours before going to bed.

4. Getting Rid of Dust

If you haven’t washed your sheets or bought new pillows recently, now would be a good time to. Be sure to dust the entire room as well, dust mites’ camp out everywhere and can cause allergic reactions that lead to snoring. Also, if you let your furry friend sleep with you, you might want to rethink that too. Pet dander can also cause allergic reactions that lead to snoring.

5. Quit Smoking

If you’re a smoker chances are you are a snorer as well, smoke damages the respiratory system, which is the main issue at hand that leads people to snore.

6. Get Plenty of Sleep

When you finally get to bed and you’re exhausted or overly tired, you aren’t getting the best sleep that you can get. You’re skipping the first stage of sleep (REM), and you end up sleeping deeper and harder than you normally would. This will cause those muscles in your throat that we’ve been talking about; to be in such a deep state of relaxation that it will cause you to snore. To help with this situation try to get to bed every night at a decent hour and get the sleep that you need.

7. Open your Nasal Passages

Getting a nice long and hot refreshing shower right before bed, is the best way to open your nasal passages, allowing you to take deeper breaths at an easier pace, allowing you to not snore and to sleep like a baby.

For a better night of rest and better day of focus, snoring less is the answer, and simple things can be done to create the hugest transitions to stop the said snoring. Just simply do laundry and clean more often, try to smoke less (if you smoke at all), be sure to determine a decent sleep pattern as well as simply doing a few things here and there to help you be healthy all the way around. Drinking more water and eating more fresh fruits and vegetables will not only help you be more fit and energized but it will help you to snore less and less too. Keep your spouse or your furry friend by your side, just sleep with clean sheets, enjoy a glass of water before bed or choose something else mentioned above and wake up feeling refreshed.
