We all need a certain amount of hours sleep everyday. It doesn't matter if you are old or young, female or male, thick or thin we need sleep to rest our mind and body to renew, energize and reinvigorate. If we don't sleep enough or if our sleep pattern is interrupted a lot we can develop all kind of health issues.
However in everyone's live there will be periods that our living conditions, work or physical problems disrupt the number of hours of sleep we actually have. There are so many situations that sleep is shortened because of our study, our babies, work stress, noisy neighbors and the snoring of our partner. To most of these problems there is no actual remedy, when we complete our study, the work stress begins, our babies grow older and then the worries of other things keep us awake, our neighbors move (we hope) but our snoring partners stay the same over the years. Or is there something we can actually do to stop the snoring?
A snoring partner is a very disrupting factor on our sleep so to start with we first need to find out what snoring actually is and if there are anti snoring devices or remedies that can help us get a good night sleep. We could use ear plugs of course but studies say that many heavy snorers make so much noise that ear plugs are not enough. We need to tackle the problem at the origin and that is your partner. What stop snoring devices should be able to be of help?
First we need to know what Snoring actually is?
We can best characterize snoring as making loud noises, snorting, rasping and all kinds of other well known loud sounds. Sometimes snoring is accompanied with a so called apneu, this is an condition where you actually stop breathing and make a load noise when your body realizes that you haven't breath in a while. If you notice this in your partner, then you need to send him to your physician. Because that can be a live threatening condition. In this article we will stick with the normal snoring type and lets face it, that is more than enough.
In general we could say that snoring is caused by a restriction of the airways. But that restriction can be caused by a number of factors:
- excessive tissue in throat and airway
- excessive tissue in the nasal passageway
- excessive tissue in the neck area
- the tongue can also be an issue
Devices To Stop Snoring Or An Exercise Program
There are many stop snoring devices on the market that can be tried but to be honest there is also a lot of rubbish out there. There are devices that help move the tongue or change the position of the jaw, they are called dental devices and must be fitted by your dentist. There are devices that force the sleeper on its side. These types of devices are meant to reprogram the positional sleeping habits.
These devices do work for some people, but in general we can only recommend two totally different remedies. the first is a stop snoring exercise program that is handling the problem at its cause and that is the weak an excise tissue around the airways. The simplicity of this program is that no matter what blocks your breathing passage, the stop snoring exercise program will cure it. The other thing we can recommend is the snore no more pillow, a combination of the two is also possible. But we can actually guarantee that over 85 percent of all the people who snor will never need any devices anymore to stop snoring because these two remedies are the solutions that have actually helped thousands of people.
