If you go online looking for a snoring remedy, you'll find more than you could ever count. It seems as though everyone and their grandma has a sure fire ssnoring remedy, but the truth of the matter is that unless you know the cause of your snoring it can be hard to cure. For example, in many cases people's tongues get in the way while they sleep. Instead of rolling over to the side of the mouth, the tongue can sometimes have a tendency to position itself in the back of the throat. When this happens and you breathe in through your mouth, it vibrates and causes the annoying snoring sound. If this is the case, changing sleeping positions can put a quick and easy end to the problem. Some people, however, can roll around all night and still snore. For them, mandibular advancement splints may be needed, which can cost upward of $3,000.
If you're a smoker, however, the best snoring remedy may be to quit. When you smoke, your throat gets weakened and excess mucus can gather in your airway. The two can combine to cause snoring, which can only be cured by kicking the habit. In other cases, overweight people may need to lose weight to sleep soundly (and softly) at night. When you're obese, the fat around your neck can put pressure on your throat and cause snoring. The only way to fix that problem is to hit the treadmill.
Quite possibly the most common snoring remedy, other than changing sleeping positions, are breathing strips. Affordable, comfortable and easy, these go over the bridge of your nose when you go to bed. They gently pull open your nasal passages and encourage you to breathe through your nose, rather than your mouth. Just be careful when you take them off, sometimes it hurts!
