Snoring Prevention - Plain and Simple
Snoring prevention may not be as difficult as you might think. Although there are some
rather extensive treatment devices out there, you can nip this health problem in the bud rather easily with a few time-tested tricks. How?
Prevention of snoring could occur by simply manipulating the way that the body works when it's sleep.
For example, health studies have shown that the nasal passage plays a significant role in snoring, as well as the uvula - the small fleshy
lobe at the back of the palate. As part of a snoring treatment program, your jaw might be non-surgically realigned so that this uvula doesn't
obstruct the airway and vibrate while you sleep.
Another snore prevention treatment might be to lose weight because again, health research and related information has shown that weight
contributes to apnea. As we sleep, our body weight can place even more weight onto the airway
than what should be, so by getting rid of some of it, we can significantly reduce the probability to snore.
In addition, the position in which we sleep also influences the propensity to snore. Studies confirm that by sleeping on the side, you can
significantly reduce or eliminate snoring. Sleeping on the side shifts weight off the airway and essentially eliminates obstruction. The side
position also prevents the palate from collapsing - another cause of snoring.
These are just a few simple strategies that you can try to alleviate your snoring problem and get a full night's rest - not only for you, but
also for your family. Snorer's aren't always aware that they're snoring - or that their snoring is a problem for the entire family.
