Snoring is usually caused when the air flow is blocked fromentering through the mouth or nose. There are many reasons why the air flow might be blocked. Ifyou have seasonal allergies or a sinus infection, the air flow might be blocked due to a stuffy nose.Drinking alcoholic drinks, taking part in deep sleep, or using sleeping pills are other reasons whyyou may snore. The muscles in your tongue or throat become overly relaxed when you do theabove, causing the muscles to cave into the airway. As you become older, muscles get morerelaxed, increasing the risks of snoring. Overweight can cause snoring, since most people whosuffer with obesity have thick throat tissue. Large tonsils and adenoids can also make childrensnore. If the opening of your throat or nose becomes narrow because of the palate or uvula in theback of your mouth, the tissue can vibrate against each other and cause you to snore.Snoring also has a negative affect on health, which can become very serious over time. Whilethere are many snoring problems, one serious health disorder that can develop is sleep apnea.Sleep apnea can cause long breathing interruptions that last more than 10 seconds, as well asheart strain, constantly waking up, light sleeping, and poor sleeping. These symptoms, in turn,may cause stress for an individual. There are other negative health affects from snoring as well,which are usually related to someone having difficulty breathing. Some disorders that might makean appearance are insomnia (having trouble falling asleep), hypersomnia (sleeping atinappropriate times), parasomnia (doing certain activities while sleeping, like sleepwalking) andmovement disorders that are related to sleeping (like restless leg syndrome).Sleep can not only affect your body but it can affect those around you. Because lots of couplesresort to sleeping in different bedrooms if a spouse snores and disrupts sleep, intimacy andcommunication may be affected negatively.

Because some peopledont like the idea of taking prescription medication to stop snoring, natural supplements are awonderful alternative. Since snoring supplements are natural, you do not have to worry abouttaking medication. An example of a natural supplement that many people use is the spray. Thisspray is created with natural ingredients and is pretty easy to use, as the snorer just has to sprayhis/her throat every night before bed. Like a lubricant, the spray helps air flow blockages, whichdecreases snoring and helps couples sleep comfortably during the night. The person using thespray will also be able to breathe easier than he/she did before.The tablet is another type of natural supplement that will silence loud snoring.

Anothernatural remedy is to sleep on your side. Sleeping on your back sometimes increases snoring,while sleeping on your side might cure it completely. Elevate your head four inches when yousleep in order to reduce snoring, so that you can breathe easier.It is also beneficial to sleep with a specially designed pillow so that neck muscles are not toocramped. There are some foods and medications, also some drinks that should be avoided too, sothat muscles are not able to relax and cause snoring. Alcohol, sleeping pills, and tranquilizers allcause muscle relaxation, while high-fat milk products and soy products cause mucus to build up.To stop snoring naturally, you should also clear nasal passages and wear nasal strips if you havea stuffy nose, since clogged nasal passages can make breathing difficult. Nasal decongestantswork well also. Fun ways to lessen snoring would be to sing, since singing improves musclecontrol in the soft palate and throat, and start playing the didgeridoo, an instrument that willstrengthen your soft palate and throat.Among all the various natural supplements and remedies, there are also medications that can betaken to reduce snoring. Anti-snoring pills and corticosteroid sprays are used as medications. Thepill, also known as BGC20-0166, combines two serotonin-modulating drugs that help cure theobstructive sleep apnea (OSA) disorder. Corticosteroid sprays are commonly used to ease nasalcongestion, reducing inflammation as well to reduce snoring. There are also decongestants to stopsnoring, which reduce nasal congestion and narrow blood vessels. Decongestants are often usedin pill or spray form, and they last for about twelve hours.Even though these medication methods do help to reduce snoring, they also have side effects.Corticosteroid sprays can cause dried mucus membranes, sores in the nose, nose bleeds, andperforated septum, which is the tissue that divides nostrils. Decongestants can causehypertension, headaches, irritation, heart rate increase, sleeping difficulty, and urine difficulty inmen who have large prostates. Even so, not everyone will have these side effects when takingmedication.

However,you will need to contact a physician or an otolaryngologist (a nose, ear, and throat doctor) aboutpossible medications that can be taken.

Surgery can also be taken to reconstructyour jaw to prevent snoring. Some common surgeries are Uvulopalatopharyngoplasty, ThermalAblation Palatoplasty, tonsillectomy, and adenoidectomy.The Pillar procedure, also known as palatal implantation, is a pretty new surgery performed in adoctors office that requires inserting plastic implants that are less than an inch long into yourpalate. Although this procedure can be a little painful and can have mild side effects. The surgeryis also pretty expensive and many insurance plans will not cover it. However, your scar tissue willstrengthen so that vibrations in the throat decrease and lessen snoring.Overall, it is important that you get help immediately if you find yourself snoring.
