Snoring is a major problem for many people. 50% of marriage end in divorce and the most common reason is due to unreasonable behavior and the top complaint is snoring. If you or your partner snores, you will know what a problem it can be and how it can make life difficult. Having trouble falling asleep next to a snoring partner is horrendous and then waking up without a full night’s sleep makes you feel terrible. You will have difficulty concentrating and making decisions and your whole day will be messed up. Sleep is very important, as this is when we recharge our batteries so to speak. Basically, snoring is a real problem for millions of people, which leaves people wondering how do you stop snoring. Not to fear, there are many ways to stop it. Don’t head for the divorce courts, try and stop snoring yourself.
Before you try to stop snoring, it’s important for you to get checked out by a doctor as in some extreme cases it can be a sign of a serious medical condition. The most common condition that is usually indicated by snoring is sleep apnoea. Sleep apnoea is when the muscles and soft tissues in the throat relax and collapse sufficiently to cause a total blockage of the airway. It is only called apnoea when the airflow is blocked for 10 seconds or more. This can be associated with being overweight so if you are diagnosed with this, losing weight should be your first port of call.
Before hitting the shops and trying all the anti snoring devices out there it is best if you look at your lifestyle and make any appropriate changes. If you drink every night or do drugs this will not be helping your snoring problem, so stop. If you don’t do any exercise, start doing some, even if it is just a small walk each day. Little changes can make a big difference. If you are overweight, this goes without saying, think about choosing a salad over a burger or steak every now and again. Lay of the sweets and chocolate for a few weeks and you will soon see your clothes getting loser. Don’t feel the need to crash diet or starve yourself, just try to eat more healthily.
It might also be worth checking to see if you suffer from any allergies. There are some allergies that cause nasal congestion, sneezing and a runny nose which can cause snoring. Doctors call this allergic rhinitis and may treat it with a combination of a nasal steroid spray and an antihistamine. Allergic rhinitis occurs when allergens in the air are breathed in and then irritate and inflame the nasal passages. Allergens include dust mites, pollen, molds, or pet dandruff. If you are allergic to any of these particles, it can trigger a release of a chemical in the body that causes nasal congestion, sneezing, watery eyes, and runny nose and snoring.
There are a number of anti snoring devices available including sprays, strips and tablets available to help you stop snoring. However the results from these devices are mixed and each person is different in the severity of their snoring so to see if they work is trial and error.
One product which is causing a bit of a stir is an acupressure snoring ring. These rings apply pressure on acupressure points on the little finger to stimulate your body’s natural healing abilities. Acupuncture is based on the concept of a person’s energy, or life force. According to Chinese philosophy the body contains two opposing forces, yin and yang. When these forces are in balance the body is healthy, but where there is a block in the flow of energy we can suffer discomfort or even disease. To release this blocked energy, pressure is applied to an acupoint. The theory that we have energy running through the body along pathways called meridians and this is getting closer to getting proved by scientists because of recent developments in technology such as stereo-microscope photographs and electron microsopy. In a study called ‘Journal of Traditional Chinese Medicine’ moxibustion and infrared thermography were used to trace meridian pathways and they managed to capture a picture which quite clearly showed these meridians.
Alternative medicines are being used more and more in western society. And doctors are even suggesting alternative therapy’s for complaints and disease which would usually be prescribed with a drug. Whether there is the placebo effect going on is hard to tell, or whether the Chinese are just right in their theories…. they are a clever nation lets face it. Having looked at all the snoring devices out there and reading reviews it does seem that the acupressure snoring ring is working for many people.
Whatever you do to stop snoring, you must do something. There has been news recently of a wife stabbing her husband because of his snoring. This really is extreme and shouldn’t have happened. But unless people tackle the snoring problem head on, more of these stories will come out and one day the result could be more fatal such as death. Let’s put an end to this madness and stop snoring today.
The Yin Yang snoring ring is made from bronze and uses acupressure to help you stop snoring.
