Is Snoring a Disease? 5 easy ways to deal with it.

Snoring- is it a normal thing in our daily life or is it a disease? I guess every single person desire a peaceful sleep after his/her hectic schedule for whole day. Snoring may disturb others at night. With the help of experts, check out this list of solutions to help you deal with this problem.

1) Hydration: One of the main cause of snoring is dehydration. You need to make sure that you never get dehydrated. If you’re not consuming adequate water as per your body’s requirement per day, then secretions in your nose and soft palate becomes sticker causing congestion. This increases snoring.

2) Lose Weight: Obesity is another strong contributor. If you are overweight then it’s imperative that you reduce your body weight. This is not to say that thin people don’t snore, they do too.

3) Re-positioning of Pillow: Keep the position of your pillow high. This allows you to elevate your head position making it easier to breathe. But don’t keep your pillow too high or should not be too flat.

4) No Alcohol, Smoking & Sedatives Policy: If you snore, then you simply cannot consume alcohol, smoke or take sedatives. Alcohol and smoking tend to reduce the resting tone of the muscles at the back of your throat. If you snore and you have a drink or two before sleeping then you will end up snoring more in the night. Whereas sedatives relax and numb your throat muscles to a point once you snore, you cannot control it. Smoking leads to chest and nasal congestion, triggering snoring.

5) Be Clean: Always clean your bed sheets, pillow covers and try to ensure that the room is dust free. Allergens are significant contributors. Dust particles can accumulate in pillows and bed sheets can aggravate the issue and cause allergic reactions.

So chill guys. Snoring is not at all a disease. If someone follows above tricks then it can be reduced to a greater extent. Though, excess of snoring can be consulted with doctors (if required).
