The 5 Best Ways To Stop Snoring

Here are what I consider the 5 best ways to stop snoring.

  1. Breathe through your nose. Of all the ways to stop snoring this is the single best thing to do to overcome your snoring.. It is not easy but if you can change from a mouth breather to a nasal breather you will have many more health benefits than just stopping you snoring.
  2. Change your diet. I’m NOT talking about losing weight but rather going on a balanced diet. Many people who change their diet get reduced snoring within days, way before any weight loss kicks in. It can be an out of balance diet that causes congested airways and snoring rather than just the weight itself. The poor diet causes snoring, it also causes weight gain . A balance diet can reduce or eliminate your snoring with the added benefit of losing a bit of excess weight.
  3. Get a good pillow - , a good pillow holds the head in a natural position and supports the jaw stopping it from falling open and letting the tongue fall to the back of the throat.
  4. Breathing and Jaw exercises. Abnormal breathing can lead to snoring. Over the years cumulative small changes in breathing can cause our breathing to get out of balance to a point that we breathe poorly without even noticing it. Abnormal feels normal. Doing breathing exercises to retrain the correct muscles so that you breathe in a balance and efficient way will reduce or eliminate snoring. More recently research has supported the success of snoring exercises where exercising and stretching the many muscles of the jaw and face help reduce snoring. Many people who do these breathing and snoring exercises report better sleep, more alertness and less stiffness.
  5. A chin strap or jaw supporting strap. A chin strap helps to keep the mouth shut and promotes nasal breathing. It also helps stop the tongue from falling to the back of the throat causing the narrowing of the airways that is associated with loud snoring. It is simple and non evasive. And once the body learns to breathe through the nose then it can be dispensed with.

So they are what I consider my 5 best ways to stop snoring. They will take some effort, especially changing from a mouth breather to a nasal breather. But for your health I encourage you to persist, because you will feel so much better on the other side.
