10 Natural Ways to Stop Snoring

Almost fifty percent of all adults snore at least sometimes; you may be one of these people or not, however, if you snore or if people tell you that you snore, it is nothing to get worked up about. Most times it is something you can overcome by some lifestyle changes or treatment. Snoring occurs when you breathe in your sleep an air flows through your throat; some tissues in the throat vibrate as a result of this and produce the snoring sound. There are a number of things that can cause snoring, and in some cases, snoring can be a symptom of underlying health problems. Many people who experience snoring have asked questions about remedies that can help them overcome this issue; that is why some of the natural ways to stop snoring are discussed below. [1]

Change Your Sleeping Position

If there is no other health condition responsible for your snoring, this remedy may help you out. Usually, when you sleep on your back, it is possible for your tongue to move to the back of the throat and block some of the airflows that should go through your throat. It is recommended that you try as much as possible to sleep on your side as it will be almost impossible for your tongue to fall back and block your throat in this position; air would flow freely and snoring will either be reduced or stopped. Some people find it hard to maintain a sleeping position where they are on their side; a body pillow can be used to keep your body in a sideways sleeping position. [2]
