Snoring is common problem in many, many homes. Not many realize that treating snoring implies small life changes and not some miracle remedy. Furthermore, many of them are very easy and have maximum results. So, no more white nights because your partner kept you awake all night. It’s time to make some changes and have a good night sleep. Here are the best remedies on the Internet.
How to get rid of snoring at home
Sleeping positions that prevent snoring
First try to sleep without any pillow. Pillows stimulate snoring by putting a kink in your neck which makes breathing much less easy. You can see how this works by simply sitting up straight, take a deep breath and in the middle of that deep breath bow your head…see and this is even without gravity pulling your tissues down into your airways.
A bit the opposite is when you elevate not just your head but your entire upper body as much as possible this will make breathing also much easier. This because your tongue and jaw come forward and gravity doesn’t pull your body tissues as much into the airway. Raise the entire head of the bed just a few inches (4″ is best), you can do this by simply putting something under the legs of the head part (bricks, tiles, planks.) Or you could consider buying a bed with moving upper body parts.
Most moderate snorers only snore when they are sleeping on their back. Sleeping on your side therefore can help to keep the airways open and stop you from snoring.
For heavy snorers, these specific home remedies for snoring will do only a little good because they will probably snore in any position, but it is certainly worth a try.
Alternative treatments for snoring
Acupressure uses pressure on certain points in your body to help you get over specific complaints or ailments. We heard from an acupressure point known as the “Inner Gate.” This point is between the 2 tendons in your wrist about 3 fingers from the point where your hand is attached to your wrist. Pressure on this point is meant to help you sleeping but it has also proven helpful in reducing snoring
Most snorers are middle-aged, overweight men. Since you can’t turn back time you might as well try to turn back the scales. This by the way applies to snorers in general; overweight is one of the major reasons for snoring. Men can already start snoring when they are 20% over their ideal body weight, with women that is 30 to 40%. If you are a moderate snorer losing a few pounds will make your snoring less loud or it may even totally disappear.This might be easier said than done we understand, but losing weight when you are overweight obviously also improves your general well-being and health.
To keep your airways open you can also put a humidifier in your bedroom. This will also lubricate your throat muscles. Another option is before you go to bed inhale steam from boiled water with some eucalyptus in it; this will also keep your airways open for a while.
