The loudest snore recorded by the Guinness Book Of World Records measured approximately 111.6 decibels – that’s the equivalent of a jet flying right over your home – so for everyone out there who has experienced particularly loud or disruptive snoring, we can perfectly understand why you might be on the hunt for a cure for snoring!
Can snoring be cured? The good news is that Snoring can be cured but it depends on the specific cause of the snoring for the individual in question. Every person will snore for different reasons and everyone has their own preference and reaction to the various treatments available for snoring but as over 75% of testers said their snoring was cured after 6 weeks of regular Snorgo use, we think it’s safe to say that snoring can definitely be cured!
Just a few minutes a day is all it takes to cure snoring when using Snorgo. By completing simple, do-them-anywhere daily exercises with Snorgo, the muscles behind the throat and nasal passages are strengthened enough to reduce the vibrations of the tissue in these areas that are the cause of snoring in most people. We recommend that the exercises are completed at your convenience 3 times a day and they take no more than 2-3 minutes in total – less time than it takes to make a cup of tea!
Can Snoring Be Cured?
Most of us snore at some point in our lives and around 45% of Brits are regular snorers. If you regularly wake up tired, with a dry mouth you could be one of nearly 30 million Brits that snore and if you regularly wake up tired and irritable because your partner or housemate snores – you will one of millions more also interested in finding out more about how snoring can be cured! You may also find our the article How to Stop Snoring Permanently useful.
In this article we will take you through why it is possible to cure snoring and how this can be done with simple snoring aids like Snorgo combined with easy lifestyle changes that have been proven to reduce and eventually cure snoring.
What Causes Snoring?
To find a cure for snoring, you need to understand what the cause of your snoring is in the first place. When armed with this information you can take the right steps to treating the root cause of snoring for you.
Snoring occurs when air moves around your nose and throat as you breathe when sleeping. This movement of air causes the relaxed tissues in these areas to vibrate and the snoring sound we are all familiar with is the result. People are prone to snoring when they sleep because this is when our muscles are most relaxed therefore the tongue and airways are more likely to relax or partially collapse, resulting in obstructed airways.
Why Do Some People Snore More Than Others?
Snorers will tend to have a variety of factors that contribute to increased vibrations in the airways when they sleep including more relaxed tissue than their non-snoring counterparts or narrow or partially blocked airways. You can be born with these physical traits but they can also all be exacerbated by the position we sleep in, how healthy we are or if there are any underlying medical reasons for our snoring. In the case of any of these factors coming into play, airway vibrations are increased as you breath when asleep resulting in louder, more disruptive snoring.
Snorgo Is A Simple Cure For Snoring
Snorgo is such a simple cure for snoring and one that doesn’t involve wearing any kind of device when you sleep, no medicines to take – and all it takes is 90 seconds of ‘work’ a day!
With a small, mouth-held device you complete a series of simple daily exercises at times that are convenient to you so all you have to worry about when your eyelids get heavy is enjoying a restful sleep.
Just like all muscles in the body, the muscles in the space behind our nose and throats also respond well to training and can get stronger. We’ve seen that regular training of these areas with Snorgo makes the involuntary muscles surrounding our airways stronger and leaner which leads to a reduction in the vibrations that cause snoring.
How Does Snorgo Work?
The exercise we recommend involves holding your Snorgo between your lips in front of your teeth and then resisting a gentle pulling force applied with your hands for ten seconds. Aim to complete this ten second hold 3 times, three times a day for the best results.
Do take a look at our video which shows this simple exercise demonstrated by Snorgo founder Dr Pete Naylor.
What else can help to cure snoring?
As well as using your Snorgo device regularly, it’s worth combining with these simple lifestyle adjustments to see maximum results in record time – a two pronged attack if you like.
Maintaining a health weight with a good diet and exercise
Those who are overweight will have more fatty tissues in their throats, leading to narrower air passages. By tackling this head on by eating within a healthy calorie range for your body type and maintaining good activity levels you may see an improvement in your snoring.
Allergies such as hay fever, cause nasal passages too narrow and force you to breathe through your mouth which is known to increase snoring. Antihistamines, either nasal sprays or tablets, may ease this narrowing and help to reduce snoring. With hay fever, remember to keep your bedroom windows closed, especially when the pollen count is high. Also, don’t change from your outside clothes directly in the bedroom as you will disperse all the pollen on them.
Adjust Your Sleeping Position
The position you adopt when you sleep can help to aggravate or alleviate snoring. Lying on your back for example causes your tongue to flop and potentially mildly restricting your airways, which can lead to further snoring. Try sleeping on your side to prevent this – You can use pillows to try and prop yourself that way.
Reduce Alcohol and Smoking
Alcohol is another known relaxant on muscles so if you’re prone to snoring, try reducing your intake or at least not drinking any alcohol for 3 hours before you sleep. For those that smoke, this can inflame the lining of your throat which again leads to narrower airways.
This will always be something that would initially be discussed with your healthcare professional and you must carefully consider that advice and what is right for your own case. They are usually offered following sleep studies demonstrating significant issues and sleep apnoea – rather than just snoring alone. Although a last resort, surgery can help snorers but it should always be reserved for those with specific issues such as the above or fundamental anatomical features that cause snoring such as elongated soft palates, collapsed airways and excess vibratory tissue such as the uvula or tonsils that haven’t been responsive to the non-surgical options to stop snoring outlined in this article. Common types of surgery for snoring include Uvulopalatopharyngoplasty (UPPP) Laser-assisted uvuloplatoplasty (LAUP) Platal stiffening operations (CAPSO) and Radio-frequency ablation (Somnoplasty) but none of the procedures are guaranteed to cure snoring and surgery won’t be able to correct tongue based snoring. The article How to Stop Snoring without Surgery if this area is of interest.
Will Snorgo Work For Me?
If you’re a snorer without any underlying medical cause for your snoring like sleep apnoea (which needs specialist medical attention) or you are confident it can supplement then we are very confident Snorgo will work for you so why not give it a try? .
We can tell you why we think Snorgo will work – Snorgo users work to tone and strengthen the muscles around the nose, mouth and neck which in turn can correct some of the most common exacerbators of snoring around.
- If you sleep on your back – stronger muscles can prevent your jaw becoming so slack and your tongue falling backwards to cause any restriction on your airway. A tongue base snorer is somebody whose tongue tends to drop to the back of their throat when sleeping causing an obstruction to the airway and you are likely to be a tongue base snorer if you can make a snoring noise with your mouth open and closed. This doesn’t mean you don’t suffer with other issues too.
- If you sleep on your side and snore in this position, it’s likely to be due to excess vibratory tissue rather than partial blockage of airways, which again, with regular Snorgo use can be improved as airway vibrations are reduced when the muscles around the area are strengthened.
- If you snore due to a palatal flutter which is sometimes the case for people with a normal BMI, then you may benefit from devices that work to tighten the tissue around the soft palate – exactly what Snorgo does.
Why Should I Find A Cure For Snoring?
Sleep is such an important part of a healthy lifestyle. The optimum recommended amount of sleep that an adult needs is 7-9 hours a night so if you are regularly getting less than this due to your own snoring or somebody else’s, you could be feeling the impacts of snoring in all areas of your life without realising it. We can’t all be like Fashion designer and director Tom Ford who seems to excel in business on a reported three hours a night, and although some people can survive just fine on a few hours of sleep a night, most of us will admit we’re all happier after a good long sleep.
The graph below from the Harvard Business Review compares the effects of sleep deprivation to that of alcohol intoxication and shows that even moderate fatigue can affect performance as much as alcohol impairment. Now, we bet you wouldn’t want to walk around at work all day drunk as a skunk so why try and get through the day productively whilst experiencing that same level of performance impairment due to lack of sleep? Consider Is Snoring Bad for my Health?
Impacts of Sleep Disruption From Snoring
If you struggle to get up in the morning, often wake up with headaches or struggle to concentrate during the day due to lack of quality sleep, you could be suffering from chronic fatigue caused by snoring disruption.
This kind of chronic fatigue can lead to lapses of concentration that lead to accidents and eventually health conditions as your body struggles to perform without enough energy.
You could take a short term approach just to get through a few nights running on empty or look at the bigger picture and take simple daily steps to building up healthy habits that could provide a long term cure for snoring – something that we think it;s definitely worth the small time investment needed rather than looking for a quick fix or struggling on regardless.
Cure Snoring To Prevent Public Blushes
Although snoring is common and nothing to be embarrassed about, it’s all very well snoring louder than a steam train in your own home but for those that snore at home, you’re also likely to snore wherever you sleep which could lead to some blushes when falling asleep in the company of others.
If you tend to travel a lot due to work or regularly find yourself drifting off in lectures at university or meetings at work, we bet the peace of mind knowing that your snoring is under control would be a weight off your mind! How many times have you woken up on a flight without realising you’d dropped off to face the anxiety of wondering if your fellow travelers have been treated to the sound of your snoring while the credits roll on the in flight movie that you missed? If this rings true, there is no better time than now to reign in your snoring and work to cure it for good!
Can Snoring Be Cured Permanently?
By using Snorgo to train the muscles responsible for snoring, you are addressing the root cause of the problem rather than simply alleviating symptoms that might aggravate snoring like allergies or narrow airways when taking medication or using strips and sprays that claim to clear airways.
With regular use our testers have indicated that Snorgo can provide a permanent cure for snoring.
To see long term benefits of snoring aids like Snorgo, you need to continue to use them on a semi regular basis once you have achieved your initial optimum result of getting your snoring under control. Think of it as topping up the car with petrol or maintaining hard earned muscle mass in the gym. You won’t need to do this daily but do allow time to maintain your results.
Snorgo is a British designed and manufactured product that is recommended by Doctors and Dentists alike. Snorgo founders Dr Pete Naylor and Chartered Scientist Phil Sutton have been amazed with the results from initial Snorgo users with 100% of those completing a short independent trial with Snorgo stating they had seen huge improvements in their snoring and 75% reported their snoring was cured completely in just 4-6 weeks.
We hope this article has shown you there are ways to cure your snoring out there. By dedicating just a little bit of time and having the will to succeed, Snorgo can provide an excellent cure for snoring that lasts.
