These snoring cures can let you and your partner get a peaceful night’s rest.
- Try sleeping on your side – Most people snore when they are on the back, rather than on their side. Put a tennis ball in the back of your top to keep you from rolling over on your back.
- Avoid alcohol – Alcohol depresses the central nervous system, relaxing the muscles of your throat and makes snoring more likely.
- Avoid sedatives – Like alcohol, sedatives depress the central nervous system and relax the muscles of your throat and jaw, making your more likely to snore.
- Use nasal strips – Nasal strips, such as Breathe Right, keep nasal passages open and prevent snoring.
- Try a mouth guard – A dentist can prescribe an anti-snoring mouth guard that fits into the mouth and keeps the upper and lower teeth together and stops snoring.
- Quit smoking – If you are a smoker, you are more likely to smoke, since smoking irritates the lining of the upper airway. If you stop smoking, your snoring may cease, or become less frequent.
- Elevate your head – Sleeping on 2 pillows keeps pressure off of the airway and makes it easier to breathe, resulting in less snoring.
- Exercise - People who get plenty of exercise have less congestion and are less likely to snore.
- Try breathing marjoram oil – Get a jar of marjoram oil, open it and take several sniffs before retiring. Leave the open jar near your bed while you sleep.
