If you find you are having troubles with snoring, you are not alone. It is estimated that anywhere from thirty to forty percent of Americans suffer regularly from snoring. Many couples end up sleeping apart due to the disruption. There are snoring cures available.
There are a variety of anti-snoring devices available on the market today. One device that is commonly used is a mouthpiece. This helps to keep the jaw in what is considered an “awake” position and this helps to open the airways via the mouth. You can find mouthpieces pretty much anywhere including local markets and drug stores; they also tend to be pretty cheap and easy to use. You can find strips that are places on your nose and this is supposed to help open up the airways through the nasal cavity, which should reduce the amount of reliance on throat breathing and thus reduce your snoring.
A device called a continuous positive airway pressure, or CPAP, machine is commonly used when other methods have failed and in an attempt to avoid or even in conjunction with surgery. A CPAP machine uses a mask that is placed over your nose and/or mouth at night. While it is connected to the machine, it provides a continuous flow of air. This helps to take the stress off of the person and increase the amount of airflow to reduce the amount of snoring.
There are some natural remedies to stop snoring as well. It could be as simple as changing up the positions you sleep in at night to keep your throat from closing up. Losing weight helps by taking away the constant pressure from neck fat. There are even herbal oral sprays to reduce swelling and open up airways.
Another option is surgery. A laser tonsillectomy reduces enlarged tonsils in size so that the air passageways do not get blocked. There is also a procedure called the Pillar Procedure. With this surgery a few small implants are woven into the soft palate to help reduce the vibrations. A soft palate coblation helps to stiffen the soft palate, which will reduce the vibrations as well. This procedure only takes about twenty minutes. A coblation-assisted turbinate reduction is another quick procedure. This one helps to reduce the size of nasal turbinates, which not only helps a person who snores, but also can be beneficial to a chronic allergy sufferer.
