According to healthline Snoring is caused by air passing through an airway that is partially blocked. When you snore, the tissues at the top of your airway vibrate and rub against each other. Most adults experience occasional bouts of snoring.
It's no secret that snoring is a major source of social discomfort and frustration for the vast majority of individuals. Some people may find snoring annoying, and it could indicate a health problem. Snoring can be caused by a variety of factors. You can learn how to stop snoring while you sleep and figure out if you need see a doctor about your snoring by experimenting with several methods.
You'll find Medicalnewstoday's recommended methods for combating nighttime snoring below.
Sleeping on One's Side
The likelihood of snoring is affected by how you sleep. In most cases, snoring is associated with sleeping in the supine position (on one's back). Snoring is lessened when you sleep on your side as opposed to your back. Those who tilt their heads to the side have less trouble snoring.
If you're having problems breathing, try a nasal strip or dilator.
Use of nasal dilators (both internally and externally) has been shown to improve sleep-related breathing. This may lead to decreased snoring. You may find low-priced OTC versions of these handy gadgets in most pharmacies and online.
Don a snore-deterring mouthpiece.
A variety of dental aids exist for the treatment of snoring. When compared to nasal strips, anti-snoring mouthpieces are more cumbersome to use since they require constant placement within the mouth during sleep. An anti-snoring mouthpiece is one variety of mouthguard that is available without a prescription.
Adopting a New Way of Life
Although side sleeping, nasal decongestants, and anti-snoring mouthpieces can help some people, others still snore even after using these measures. If this describes you, it may be time to make some serious changes to your way of life.
Of the several treatments for snoring, losing weight is widely regarded as pivotal. Those who are already overweight or obese are the only ones who should take this advice seriously. The National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute has a handy tool where you can plug in your stats (height, weight, and waist circumference) to get an idea of whether or not you are at a healthy weight.
