Bullied Because Of Snoring From Sleep Apnea

https://www.bestwaytostopsnoring.com/
Anyone Who Has Suffered From Snoring Or Sleep Apnea

– will know that you are always tired and likely to fall asleep if you just sit down with nothing to do. Even if you have something to do, you may fall asleep, especially after lunch or a meal. You don’t even have to have taken alcohol or anything else, just sitting down is enough to allow you to fall asleep.

How Do I Know I have Sleep Apnea

Snoring (ask your partner), sleepiness during the day, waking with a dry mouth and daily headaches can all be signs of sleep apnea but you can only get a full diagnosis by visiting your doctor and being seen at a sleep clinic.

Why Always Sleeping

Sleep apnea and heavy snoring mean you never get a good night’s sleep. Once asleep, your facial and throat muscles relax and reduce your airway, which means you can’t get enough oxygen round your body. You may not realize that you are not getting restful sleep but with sleep apnea, you constantly wake as you fight for breath. It may only be for milliseconds and you may not even realise it but your sleep has been disturbed and you won’t be rested the next day. If that has gone on for long, then any time you sit down, your body will try to catch up on the sleep you have lost. That can be when you’re driving or watching TV or even in a meeting at work, leading to vehicle accidents, snoring on the sofa or even in work. It can also affect your sleeping partner. While you may not necessarily wake up because you are snoring or suffering the breathing problems that come with sleep apnea, your sleeping partner may well be woken up or kept awake. Some sleeping partners have had to move to other rooms to be able to sleep and some have even been injured by a sleep apnea incident, for instance where the sufferer is struggling because they cannot breathe. They do not wake but may lash out unknowingly.

On The Train

And yes, falling asleep on the train is pretty common. People have missed their stops, travelled long distances away from where they meant to go and many other misadventures. Add to that the really heavy, deep sleep of someone who has always suffered from sleep apnea and the loud snoring that often accompanies sleeping upright on a seat instead of on your side in bed and it sets the scene for mischievous fellow travellers!

D’s Story

This happened only a few days ago. D had been away from home since before the Coronavirus outbreak started. His job was coming to an end and he had to return home. There were no planes and no long distance buses, so his only means of travel was to take several trains and a ferry. The trains were not direct routes, so he was going to have to travel for 24 hours, or near enough, with some stopovers.

By the time he got onto his last but one train journey, he had been travelling for nearly 20 hours and was worn out. This train journey would be 2 hours long, with few stops. He phoned his daughter shortly after the train started to let her know he would not be long. There was a group of young men on the train celebrating something, making a lot of noise and even letting off firecrackers but even that noise did not stop him falling very deeply asleep. He doesn’t even remember the journey, just being bundled off the train at journey’s end, by the conductor. He had not drunk anything, nor taken any other substances, he was just still more than half asleep from weariness. Only on the platform did he realize he had lost his phone and even worse, he was stinking of alcohol, and so were his rucksack and the clothes and books inside.

Once home, he began to piece together what must have happened. He could only guess that he had been snoring while asleep. It was very likely because he suffered from sleep apnea. He knew from his parents’ comments that his snoring was always VERY VERY loud and could be heard through closed doors. He assumed that the celebratory group must have been annoyed by the sound of his snoring and had poured beer over him. He wasn’t sure whether they had also taken his phone. It’s possible the group tried to wake him but were unable to (this was common when D was tired) and so had tried to see what they could do to waken him and presumably stop the snoring, and so ended up pouring beer on him. Even that did not wake him and only the conductor bundling him off the train at the end of the journey half woke him as he landed on the platform.

After a night’s sleep, he was able to function a bit better and phoned the train company to ask about his phone. A couple of days later, he was able to reclaim it – it had been lost and not stolen. That sleep nearly cost him a lot more money than he expected.

Costs Money

Sleep apnea can cost a lot more money than you might think. Not just lost property. A traffic accident could cost your life or someone else’s and it has been calculated that as many as 1 in 5 traffic accidents happen because of fatigue – not necessarily the “I stayed up too late last night” type of fatigue but the “I’m always tired” type of fatigue. This is often a sign of sleep apnea as can be snoring.

How To Get Rid Of Sleep Apnea

The quickest and easiest way to get rid of sleep apnea is to change your sleeping position. The best sleeping position for sleep apnea is to sleep on your side, left or right, it doesn’t matter but not on your back. Of course, once you are asleep, it may be difficult to avoid shifting to a back sleeping position. Some people have sewn a table tennis ball into the back of a pyjama jacket. Apparently this makes it uncomfortable to lie on your back and encourages side sleeping but it doesn’t work for everyone. Others have put soft foam balls inside a t-shirt and tied it around the waist for a quick cheap solution to remaining on your side for sleeping.

Special breathing exercises can also help with snoring and sleep apnea. One of the causes of snoring or breathing difficulties when asleep can be lack of muscle tone in the mouth and throat. Breathing exercises can help with this, by toning these muscles and creating a better airway. Some people have found that the singing exercises practised by professional singers have helped.

Bodily exercise and maintaining a reasonable body weight can also help reduce snoring, as can cutting out smoking and not drinking alcohol just before bedtime. Another possibility is to use a humidifier, to keep the air in your bedroom moist.

If none of these help, then you may be able to attend a sleep apnea clinic or be prescribed a CPAP machine that maintains a positive air pressure in your mouth while you sleep. There are also chin straps and nose clips that some people have found helpful.

Some people have found that a quick and cheap solution to sleep apnea lies in using a surgical neck brace, available from local stores.

To Stop Snoring

Photo by Mika on UnsplashSleep Is Important

The amount and quality of sleep we get is very important for our overall health and well being.  A stop snoring product or remedy can make the difference in rest and social well being, too.  Many a couple has experienced difficulties due to one partner having a snoring problem, with the snorer sometimes being banished from the bedroom! One woman found a very easy remedy to stop her husband snoring, using something you may already have in the house and if not, usually easily available locally. Read on to find out what this stop snoring aid is.

What Causes Snoring

To find a way to curtail the snoring, you must determine what causes it.  Sometimes this is a simple matter of asking the person you sleep with, but there are contributing factors you need to know before finding a stop snoring remedy.

Some of the causes of snoring are:

  • Sinus problems cause a person to breathe entirely through the mouth, which provides more opportunity for snoring.
  • Sleeping on the back is the best possible way to invoke snoring.
  • Age plays a key part in snoring because of the narrowing of the throat and loss of muscle tone as a person ages.
  • Medications, smoking, and alcohol all add to the relaxing of throat muscles and can contribute to the problem.
  • Overweight people tend to snore more than those in good physical shape.
  • Men have narrower airways than women, so gender has something to do with snoring, as well as other physical characteristics that may make snoring inevitable without a stop snoring remedy.
  • Some snoring problems are easier to control than others based on the cause and the severity of the problem. Losing weight, cutting down on alcohol consumption, clearing the nasal passages, and not smoking are all good ways to help the problem.

Ways To Decrease Snoring

Other important steps to take that may help decrease the snoring are:

  • Establishing regular sleeping habits, especially with your partner, can lead to better rest for the both of you.
  • Keep bedroom air moist with a humidifier because dry air leads to sinus irritation and congestion.
  • Elevate your head during sleep approximately four inches above the mattress and tilt the head forward, lessening the probability of sleeping with the mouth open.

If you don’t know what causes the snoring but want to try something to stop it – try this woman’s remedy to stop her husband snoring:

A stop snoring remedy is a culmination of several individual things you can do to improve your sleeping process.  Each little thing you do can help ease the problem. Even a reduction in the amount of snoring is better than nothing at all, and your sleeping partner will appreciate any relief they can get. So you have nothing to lose by trying any or all of these stop snoring remedies.

Glue Ear Treatment Without Surgery

What Is Glue Ear?

Glue ear is known medically as otitis media with effusion but if you want it in plain English, it’s an infection of the middle ear with a sticky fluid produced. It mainly occurs in children but adults can also be affected. When the outlet from the middle ear (the Eustachian tube) is blocked, a clear fluid forms that fills the Eustachian tube. Over time, this fluid thickens and blocks the tube and this is what is known as the “glue”. Some people with glue ear snore.

What’s A Middle Ear?

The ear has three parts, the outer ear which includes what is known as the Pinna, the part we think of as the ear, right down to the ear drum, then there is the middle ear, which starts behind the ear drum and finally, the inner ear. The middle ear has a tube (the Eustachian tube) going down to the throat at the back of the mouth.

What’s The Eustachian Tube?

The Eustachian tube is a pressure equalizer. Without it, the middle ear has no outlet to the world but it needs one, in order to keep the air pressure inside the middle ear the same as in the air around us, so it can work properly. When we swallow, the Eustachian tube allows air in or out of the middle ear, so it has the same pressure as our surroundings. This is why airlines used to provide hard boiled sweets or candy to suck, for take -off and landing, to help equalize pressure in the middle ear, compared with air pressure in the plane’s cabin.

What’s The Problem With Glue Ear?

Inside the middle ear are three small bones that carry vibrations from the ear drum to the inner ear, to help us understand what we are hearing. With glue ear, the ear drum gets pulled into the middle ear a bit and these bones can’t move and vibrate as they should, so the person becomes hard of hearing. In children, especially, this can affect their learning, as they cannot hear what is said. It can also affect their speech, as they cannot repeat back words correctly, for example, one child with glue ear said “wim poo” for swimming pool and “dadaj” for garage.

How Is Glue Ear Treated

Glue ear does NOT damage the ear. Medical treatments such as antibiotics and antihistamines don’t work well and a lot of the treatment is of the “wait and see if it improves” type. This is reasonable as many cases clear up of their own accord within 3 months or so, but not all. For some children, surgery with grommets (vents) being inserted into the ear drum helps but many parents are wary of surgery, especially in young children. The grommets tend to fall out after a time and the glue ear condition can return.

Non Surgical Treatments For Glue Ear

[instantazon id=’wpis_1533494597′]

Not new but receiving a new boost from doctors, is the nasal balloon. This can be used by both children and adults. It is not a medical treatment, so no drugs, nor is it surgical, so no cutting, no hospital stay and no anaesthetic. It’s purely a physical procedure, called autoinflation, which even a child can learn to do safely and with no side effects. The treatment consists of blowing up a balloon through one nostril, or each nostril in turn if glue ear is present in both ears. Once the patient learns how to do this, it should be done 3 times a day for best results. The video below, while not great quality, shows a child being taught to use the nasal balloon. Results can be immediate with an instant return of hearing, though other times, it takes perseverance.

Results

According to research in the Canadian Medical Association Journal, autoinflation, or use of the nasal balloon is more likely to produce normal hearing results than other interventions. Most people will visit their doctor first for consultation and confirmation of whether they have glue ear and if so, whether a nasal balloon might help alleviate this. Nose balloons are available on line.

 

8 Ways To Stop Snoring

Most people don’t snore, or at least they don’t disturb anyone else when they do but almost half of us snore at least sometimes, or are disturbed by someone who does. Snoring may be seen as a joke but it can be very serious for sufferers or their sleeping partners, leading to sleeping in separate bedrooms or even total separation or divorce. Snoring is not only a nuisance to the sufferer and their sleeping partner but as many as 75% of those who snore have obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). OSA sufferers stop breathing for short periods during their sleep. This can increase the risk of high blood pressure, stroke and heart disease.

Anything like a cold or flu or even allergies that stuff up your nose and mean you breathe through your mouth instead, can make you snore, On a temporary basis, you can get over-the-counter medicines or nasal strips to keep your nostrils open but if you’re constantly stuffed up talk to your medical adviser.

Ways to reduce or prevent snoring

  • Sleep on your side. Try sleeping with two or three stacked pillows so you’re not flat on your back but don’t make them too high as that can also cause snoring from tilting your head too far forward. Sew a small pocket on the back of your pajama jacket and put a tennis ball in it so you don’t sleep on your back.
  • Check up on any drugs you are taking. Sedatives, muscle relaxants, and some antidepressants can relax your tongue and the muscles in your throat and this can lead to snoring Your doctor may be able to change your medications if this would help.
  • Get enough sleep. Make getting enough sleep a habit. Go to bed and rise at regular hours.
  • Don’t drink alcohol less than 3 or 4 hours before bed. Sleeping pills can also have the same effect, not only making snoring more likely but possibly worsening the quality of your sleep.
  • Cut back on smoking. This irritates the throat lining and narrows the air passages, leading to snoring
  • Keep your bedroom air moist. This helps lubricate your throat and makes breathing through your nose easier, reducing snoring. A humidifier may help.
  • Treat allergies with antihistamines before going to bed. People with allergies may find they snore more during allergy season. And taking this treatment before bed can keep your nasal passages free during the night.
  • Try tongue and throat exercises. Some people snore because the muscles in their mouth and throat have lost tone (slack or loose). Exercising these muscles can improve the muscle tone and reduce snoring. You can find a number of programmes that teach you singing exercises that will greatly improve your muscle tone. Or just try singing more often or even play the Australian didgeridoo. Research has found that volunteers who performed the exercises shown below daily over a period of three months not only reduced their snoring frequency but also snoring intensity compared with those who didn’t do the exercises.

Stop Snoring 300 x 250</p> <p>
Exercise 1: Push the tip of the tongue against the roof of the mouth and slide the tongue backward.

Exercise 2: Suck the tongue upward against the roof of the mouth and press the entire tongue against the roof of the mouth.

Exercise 3: Force the back of the tongue against the floor of the mouth while keeping the tip of the tongue in contact with the bottom front teeth.

Exercise 4: Elevate the soft palate (the back of the roof of the mouth) and the uvula (the fleshy protrusion that hangs from the soft palate) while making the vowel sound “A.”

Nasal Polyps

Nasal Polyps – An Everlasting Cold

That cold that doesn’t go away! Is it a cold? Or might it be due to nasal polyps?

What Are Nasal Polyps?

If you have a cold that continues past 10 days and that doesn’t go away, even with over-the-counter cold or allergy medication, you may have nasal polyps. These are benign (that means they are NOT cancerous) growths of the lining in your nose.

Polyps are tear-drop-shaped or round growths that can block your nose. Often, you do not know you have them, but some people need to have them removed, because they can contribute to sinus problems, asthma and even sleep apnea.

Quick Solution Miracle Cure For Nasal Polyps

Nasal Polyps Treatment Miracle.

This is a guidebook to treating nasal polyps without surgery or steroids, providing a permanent cure between four days to eight weeks. It helps polyps shrink, giving quick relief from chronic situations like recurrent headaches, sinusitis, and asthma and also relieves symptoms of insomnia and sleep apnea caused by breathing difficulties.

Symptoms Of Nasal Polyps

The symptoms can include a constantly runny nose, chronic respiratory tract infections, sneezing, postnasal drip and loss of the sense of smell, breathlessness, breathing through the mouth, asthma, insomnia and nose bleeds. They are also linked with allergic rhinitis and cystic fibrosis. But often the cause is unknown and may even be hereditary. Sometimes, people get them before they develop asthma or sinusitis. Obstructive sleep apnea, a condition that causes you to stop and start breathing frequently while sleeping, may be associated with nasal polyps in some people.

Treatment

Treatment of nasal polyps is not always necessary. Those who develop a small nasal polyps and do not notice any adverse symptoms generally need only monitoring of the polyps. Treatment often is by way of steroids, antihistamines and surgery. But there are also natural home remedies for nasal polyps and these have the added HUGE benefit of helping stop the polyps coming back.

BEFORE TRYING REMEDIES FOR NASAL POLYPS

Before you try any remedies, be sure that nasal polyps are actually what is causing your symptoms. The best way to do this is to consult your medical adviser. NOTE: Pregnant and breastfeeding mums should ALWAYS consult their medical advisers before trying any remedies. Anyone who is already on medication should also ask their medical adviser whether any of the following might affect their medications.

Home Remedies

Pineapple Core

The core of a pineapple contains bromelain which can help reduce symptoms of sinus infections and may also help protect against allergies and asthma. You can also take bromelain as a daily supplement.

Magnesium

Magnesium rich foods, like nuts, seeds, legumes and dark green leafy vegetables (dark green cabbage) can help, or you can take a magnesium supplement or soak in bath filled with Epsom salt to absorb magnesium directly through your skin.

Turmeric

Turmeric, previously only associated with curries is becoming very popular these days and rightly so, not just for its taste properties but also for its health-giving properties. Turmeric contains curcumin, a great anti-inflammatory. You can add turmeric to your cooking (yum) or drink in a smoothie (golden smoothie). You can also take it as a supplement, available over the counter or from health shops or online.

Onion

Many people will have this natural decongestant in their kitchen all the time. Boil a chopped-up onion in water for 5 minutes. Place the mixture in a bowl and inhale the steam, putting a cloth over your head to prevent it steaming up your kitchen (Be careful of boiling water!). Once cooled, save the water and drink a little 2 or 3 times daily.

Garlic

Provided you don’t mind being seen as anti social, you can chew raw garlic, otherwise, treat it in the same way as onion.

Apple Cider Vinegar

This food cupboard stand-by (for making stock, among other things) can also be used to fight nasal polyps, by drinking a glass of warm water, containing 2 spoonfuls 2 or 3 times a day.

Ginger

Boil fresh slices of ginger in water for about 10 minutes. Allow to cool, then drink as a herbal tea. You can add lemon juice or honey or both to taste, if you like.

Summary

Nasal Polyps can be a miserable condition but there are several ways of treating them. Provided your medical adviser has confirmed that this is what you have and that there is no reason for you not to try treating them, go ahead and try one or more of the remedies given.

Snoring Aids

www.bestwaytostopsnoring.comSnoring and sleep apnea can cause a great deal of grief to the snorer and their family. They can also cause severe health problems. And while it may be funny to hear a sufferer’s partner describe during the day how the snorer behaves and the lengths the partner must go to to avoid being hit when the snorer is dreaming or to get a reasonable amount of sleep, it is definitely NOT funny if you are having to deal with this in the middle of the night, when you are tired and need uninterrupted sleep.

There are many snoring aids or anti-snoring aids available to try, as well as CPAP and Maxillary Advancement Devices which may be available from your medical practitioner and which need professional advice and help to get the best use from them. These aids are not for everyone, some may suit you better than others and you should check reviews from other users to see if these will suit you. With some devices, it is possible to use them on a trial basis to see whether you can tolerate them or whether they make your sleep worse, even after a period of adjustment. Other devices are reasonably cheap and if they don’t work for you, you can try a different device. And there are exercises available here and other exercise options available here for toning slack muscles in the mouth and throat which may suit some.

Respironics Nuance Pro Mask

A CPAP machine may be prescribed for people who have sleep apnea. In sleep apnea, the sufferer may stop breathing while sleeping, resulting in loud snores as their body tries to restore the oxygen supply or even waking the person up from sleep regularly throughout the night. This can lead to people suffering constant fatigue and relationship problems because they may keep their partner or even the whole neighborhood awake with snoring.

CPAP stands for Continuous Positive Airway Pressure and is applied through a mask and hose connected to a pump. This provides a continual positive flow of air into the nose and this keeps the airways open while the user is sleeping, preventing breathing stoppages, snoring and helping the person get a more refreshing night’s sleep.

Himalayan Chandra Porcelain Neti Pot

image created by Kurt Yoder on December 29, 2004A neti pot is a small porcelain or plastic pot with a long spout, looking a little like Aladdin’s magic lamp! It is used for washing out the nose and sinuses to remove allergens, dust and mucus.

Neti pots have been used for centuries in India and have been adopted more recently by the Western world.
Washing out the nose is called nasal irrigation and a mild solution of salt in water in used. The salt helps to shrink inflamed tissues and can help remove infection and this is one possibility to help stop snoring.

Some people may be wary of using them at first but there are plenty of videos available for demonstrating the use of a neti pot and once you see how they are used, you will agree it is very simple. Basically you bend your face over a sink and tilt your head to one side. Then insert the tip of the neti pot into the upper nostril and let the saline solution run gently into the nasal cavities. Provided you keep your head tilted forward, it will not run down your throat. Once the nasal passages have been washed out from one side, then tilt the head the other way and run the solution through the other nostril.

Stop snoring!

Persistent snoring

Snoring – it affects pretty much everyone at one point or another. However, some people snore much more frequently than others. Persistent snoring not only affects the quantity of your sleep, but also the quality of it. This can leave you feeling fatigued throughout the day, which will leave you more irritable. It can also increase the likelihood of developing some serious health problems. Also, snoring may cause your partner to stay awake as well. This can lead to relationship problems if it isn’t addressed sooner or later. They could maybe end up wishing you were in outer space or at least inside a spacesuit! If you are tired of how your snoring is affecting your life, you’ve come to the right place. In the following article we’ll talk about possible causes for your snoring and what you can do to finally get a handle on it and stop snoring immediately – perhaps.

Why snoring happens

Before looking at how you can stop snoring, let’s look at why you are snoring in the first place. There are several different reasons why someone might snore. Some of the most common include…
1. Age – As you get older, your throat gets thinner and the muscles become weaker making you more susceptible to snoring.
2. Sinus and nasal problems – When your airways are partially blocked, it is harder to breath which can create a vacuum within your throat.
3. Being out of shape or overweight – Lack of muscle tone and excess fatty tissue have been shown to contribute to snoring.
4. Sleep posture – People who sleep on their back are more likely to snore because their throat muscles relax, blocking the airway.
5. Medication, smoking and alcohol – Any of these can cause your throat muscles to relax which can lead to snoring.

How to stop snoring

If you’re a snorer, chances are you can attribute it to one or more of the causes mentioned above. Having said that, it is possible to reduce, and in some cases eliminate, your snoring altogether. The first thing you are going to want to try is to make some lifestyle changes. If you feel that your snoring may be caused because you are out of shape and/or overweight, you should strongly consider diet and exercise as a means of reducing your body fat and becoming more conditioned. It would also help to stay away from drinking, smoking and any type of sleep medication or medicines that cause you to become drowsy.

Aside from lifestyle changes, you may also want to establish a bedtime ritual that will help keep you from snoring. Make it a habit to stop eating and consuming caffeine at least two hours before going to bed. You may also want to set up a humidifier in your bedroom to keep the air moist, as dry air can also cause you to snore. If you have blocked nasal passages, consider using a nasal decongestant or Neti pot right before you go to bed. When it finally is time for you to go to sleep, position your head so that it is raised slightly because this will make it easier for you to breath throughout the night. Also, make sure not to sleep on your back. Back sleepers may want to tape a tennis ball to the back of their pyjama shirt to make sure they sleep on their side or stomach.

stop snoring

As mentioned earlier, many of the causes of snoring can be linked to weak throat muscles. There are several throat exercises you can perform throughout the day that may help your muscles become stronger. One great exercise is to place your tongue behind your teeth and move it back into your throat. Hold this position for 3 minutes each day. Another great way to strengthen your throat muscles is to sing loudly. Depending on how good a singer you are, you may want to reserve this exercise for the shower!

If none of the remedies mentioned so far have worked, it may be time for you to see a doctor. There may be some underlying, more serious condition which is causing your snoring. At the very least, your physician will be able to rule out any serious health problems.

Snoring is a completely natural bodily function, however it can become a problem if it occurs too frequently and these tips can help you banish snoring to a considerable extent.

If snoring remains a problem, there are further solutions that can be considered.

Snoring keeps others awake

Snoring is a very common problem and many people suffer from it. It can jar you from your sleep, disrupting it, and that of your bed-mate and even people in other rooms. This can have health effects by preventing you reaching deep, restorative sleep, meaning that you can suffer from fatigue and irritability the next day, as well as a dry mouth and possibly a sore throat. Yet those who are not affected often do not understand the problems it can cause. Even when close friends or relatives describe the difficulties they face with their own snoring or that of a partner, they are often met with smiles, shoulder shrugs or disbelief that snoring could cause such upheavals. Yet it can cause severe family problems, and lead to family break-ups, as the spouse is unable to sleep in the same room as the snorer.

What is snoring?

Snoring is noisy or troubled breathing during sleep and is both a sleeping disorder and a breathing problem. It may be a sign of sleep apnoea (apnea), which is potentially fatal as the snorer actually stops breathing for extended periods of time, so that you have periods of heavy snoring, followed by periods of silence where the breathing has stopped or nearly stopped. This is not only a health problem for the snorer but can be very disturbing to a sleeping partner who may lie awake waiting for the snorer to start breathing again! The snore can happen on the in breath or the out breath and the problem can range from the level of “mild nuisance” to a level that can, literally, disturb the neighbours or be heard out in the street!

What health problems are associated with snoring?

Snoring is linked to sleep apnea (apnoea), which is related to cardiovascular (heart) disease, hypertension (high blood pressure), obesity, asthma, depression and anxiety and can be linked to a history of smoking and sinus conditions. Snoring can also be a sign of a medically serious problem called Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) with complications that may include hypertension, heart attack and stroke. It is often associated with middle age and being overweight. Snoring is more common in men than in women but is not limited to overweight men. While snoring by itself may be more of a social than a medical problem, by causing sleepless nights, it is wise to consult your medical adviser for severe snoring problems, as these can also destroy relationships as well as being linked to serious health problems or severe fatigue during the day. Note: Sleep deprivation is different from insomnia. Having insomnia means you have problems going to sleep or staying asleep, whereas sleep deprivation caused by snoring or sleep apnoea has nothing to do with wakefulness. You may not even realise that you are being woken many times a night by sleep apnoea (apnea) and so may not realise that your constant tiredness is due to sleep deprivation.

How is snoring caused?

Snoring is caused by blockages in the airways (the mouth and the nose). If the nose is blocked or partially blocked (perhaps by a cold) or becomes too dry, breathing automatically switches to the mouth. If the tissues of the soft palate in the mouth become too relaxed, they soften into the mouth creating a partial blockage and then they vibrate with the passage of air into and out of the lungs. It is this vibration that causes the snoring noise.

Why do people snore?

There are a number of possible reasons for people snoring, some of them temporary (for instance if you have a blocked nose from a cold) whereas others may be less temporary (perhaps due to overweight).
What are the possible causes?
Some reasons for snoring include:

  • Being considerably overweight – especially if you have a lot of fat round your neck;
  • Alcohol. This relaxes your muscles and so narrows the airway
  • Some types of antidepressants and sedatives can have the same effect as alcohol
  • Smoking.
  • Allergic rhinitis, which causes the inside of the nose to become swollen
  • Being a ‘mouth breather
  • Polyps (small growths) in the nose

How can snoring be stopped?

There have been many so-called “cures” for snoring through the years, including garlic gargles and tennis or table tennis balls sewn into the back of the pyjama jacket to stop you lying on your back. The British Snoring & Sleep Apnoea Association (BSSAA) decided to try out the top ten with 2,000 volunteers, but not one of the remedies worked – the snorers kept on snoring.
Because there are a number of reasons for snoring, it’s important to determine WHY it is happening and then choose the correct method to address the problem. For instance, if you have polyps in your nose, then it is unlikely that certain methods that would work for others will work for you. For some people, losing weight or cutting out alcohol or cigarettes or sleeping on their side may be sufficient to stop snoring. This is why it is important to check out with your medical adviser as to what might be causing your snoring, especially if you may be suffering from sleep apnea (apnoea).
However, many of the reasons for snoring all come down to one cause – lack of tone in the muscles of the mouth. In other words, the muscles in our mouths are a bit slack. We do not snore during the day, because we have sufficient tone there to keep the airways open but when we are asleep, our whole body relaxes, including the muscles in our mouths and we have less “tone”, allowing the soft palate to reduce the airway in our mouth, leading to the familiar snoring.

Why is this program the best way to stop snoring?

This program was created by a snorer and his wife, who had been a classical singer and who now teaches singing. Christian Goodman snored for 20 years. His snoring was so bad that he and his wife had to sleep in separate rooms and he spent years of research trying out various remedies for snoring but not one of them worked. From his research, he realised that snoring was always caused by some kind of a block in the breathing passages and that any “cure” tried to remove that block. When he explained this to his wife, she told him that this was what she did with her student singers all the time – helped them strengthen their breathing passages to keep them clear and open for singing!

Christian Goodman worked with his wife learning these exercises and changing them round to address his problem areas. Within 3 weeks of starting the exercises, he had completely cured his snoring problem.

No drugs, no surgery, no gadgets or gimmicks, just exercises that will help strengthen your breathing passages to keep them open all night long and let you get the sleep you (and possibly your sleeping partner) so desperately need.

Christian is so sure that these exercises work that he provides an example of an exercise that you can try out immediately, for free. The sample exercise opens up the throat and helps to remove one of the causes of snoring – a tense jaw. There are 24 exercises in total, aimed at different parts of your breathing apparatus and all designed to help you stop snoring.
