Snoring is annoying! In fact, snoring has been one of the causes for the break-up of many marriages. Contrary to the old belief that a person is sound asleep when he snores, it actually keeps him from the deepest and most restorative stages of sleep. Sometimes, he is rudely woken up by his own sound of snoring! Snoring can lead to other issues as well, such as feeling drowsy during the day, which could result in irritability and poor concentration. Snoring happens when the muscles located in the tongue, throat and roof of the mouth relax partially blocking the airway. As a result, the surrounding tissue begins to vibrate while breathing causing the sound of snoring.
Simple Home Remedies
Strengthen the throat and tongue muscles with exercise:
Place a pencil between the top and bottom rows of your teeth and hold it there without giving too much pressure for about five minutes. Another exercise is to gently push the the tip of your tongue against the lower row of your teeth. Hold this position for five minutes, and then relax. When the throat and tongue muscles are stronger, it will lessen the chances of your tongue falling back against the throat and block the airway while you sleep.
Flush out your nasal passages with a mixture of salt, baking soda and water:
Mix together 1/4 tsp clean salt and 1/4 tsp baking soda with a cup of warm water. Fill a nasal irrigation syringe with this solution. Tilt your head to one side, and place the tip of the irrigation syringe into the upper nostril. Start the flow of the solution by pressing the plunger of the syringe. The solution will flow into the nostril through the sinus passage and drain out of the lower nostril. This saline solution will also flush out any debris or nasal irritants that block the nasal passages. After using the nasal irrigation method, gently blow your nose to clear out any excess fluid. Alternatively, you could use an isotonic nasal spray. However, these methods should be practiced only after you have consulted with your doctor.
