Snoring disturbs the sleep of your partner, and if it's loudly, it will disturb the sleep of your neighbors. Trust me, I can hear my neighbor "concerting" every night!
So, for everyone's sake, you should take serious measures for this condition, because sleeping on the couch is not the best option for any of you. I heard that even divorces occurred because of snoring, but this is just drama taken to extreme! There several ways to get rid of snoring, and enjoy a goodnight sleep, without pills or other pharmaceutical medicines.
Just take a look over this article and you will thank us later, after enjoy an 8 hour sleep near your husband.
1.Lose those extra pounds
It has been proven that overweight individuals possess a higher tendency of snoring. That happens due to the deposit of fatty tissues in the neck area that often squeezes the respiratory pathways making the person in cause to breathe with more stress.
2.Homemade saline nasal solution
Sometimes cold, allergic rhinitis or sinus infections causes snoring, too! They lead to swelling of the inner linings of nasal membranes, causing vibration of your soft palate.
To get rid of these, you can prepare a simple nasal solution right at your home. It's free from side effects and can reduce the inflammation, as well. Simply add a hint of salt in half cup of boiled water and store the solution in a bottle. You have to put 2 drops of it in each nostril using a dropper at bedtime for a few weeks. You'll soon notice the difference.
You don't mind doing a couple of facial exercises daily if we tell you that they work on the targeted muscles to gradually reduce your snoring? These exercises would help you in strengthening those jaw, throat as well as tongue muscles.
4.Use thyme oil
You can add either a few drops to your humidifier or try massaging the bottom of your feet with it. If you're not diluting it with any carrier oil, don't use more than 2 drops.
Alcohol reduces the resting tone of the muscles located in the back of your throat. Drinking alcohol four to five hours before sleep makes you more prone to snoring.
There's no alternative: you've got to drink plenty of fluids. When you're dehydrated, secretions in your soft palate become stickier and that creates more snoring. Men require about 16 cups of total water from all drinks and food in a day.
