Snoring might be seen as a song to your ears but believe me it is not to your partner especially when he starts making plans to move to the other room. Snoring can be very humiliating especially when you sleep in someone’s house or even in your own bedroom. It can make one a centre of laughter and it can be very embarrassing. Even though snoring might not be considered as a serious health problem, it is still good to give it a serious attention for the sake of healthy living.There are home remedies for snoring
What causes Snoring?

Alcohol consumption: One of the causes of snoring is excessive intake of alcohol. Alcohol is a sedative substance and when it acts as a relaxant to the muscles in the throat, it can cause snoring. Therefore it is not advisable to take excessive alcohol especially when it is close to bedtime.

Overweight: Being overweight is another cause of snoring. This is because when you are overweight, it is difficult for air to pass through the fatty tissue in the throat and airways and this leads to snoring.

Smoking: Studies have shown that smoking is a major cause of snoring. It has been proven that smokers are more likely to snore than non-smokers. Smoking is known to cause respiratory problems. The respiratory tissues in the airways gets irritated by the smoke being inhaled by the smoker, and this causes the tissues to be inflamed and swollen thereby causing a blockage to the airways and this causes snoring.

Home remedies for snoring

Change your sleeping position: One of the home remedies for snoring is to change your sleeping position.It is advised that you always change your sleeping position. Always try to prop yourself with one or two pillows. A lot of people have noticed that their snoring reduces when they prop themselves up in the night with pillows. It is also advised that you do not lie on your back, instead sleep by your side. This is because it is easier for one to breathe than when you are lying on your back.

Modifying your life styles:

The ways you live your life presently might be contributing to your snoring habit. For instance, too much eating, drinking of alcohol and smoking. All these are chief contributors to snoring. The Doctor advised that you modify your life style because this is the conservative therapy which is a primary step in curing snoring. For instance, you might not be able to give up alcohols entirely, but you can avoid drinking it especially after dinner or when it is close to bedtime, so that it will not have effect on your sleep or cause snoring.
