Do you want know how to stop snoring immediately? We can offer that solution with the immediate fixes.
Snoring is a huge problem to people’s lives with an estimated 15 million people in the UK snoring. It is often not the snorer themselves that is first affected, with their sleep partner and sometimes others in the household being interrupted from their night’s sleep.
Sleep disruption is a significant problem. It not only causes tiredness, irritability and arguments but it can affect our mental health in deeper ways. Disconcertingly, though it has an impact on all-cause mortality – probably via an increased risk of diabetes, hypertension, heart-attacks and strokes. These may occur by an increase in stress hormone responses via the failure to be able to sleep. The physical effect of chronic load snoring and the risk of moving to a condition called Sleep Apnoea also is a separate concern.
In any way that you decide look at it – Snoring is not just a nuisance condition – It is unhealthy. It is not therefore unsurprising that people want an immediate solution. Any solutions to difficult problems are rarely easy and whilst some immediate actions can be taken to prevent or lessen bad snoring, the sufferer may also want to look at long-term fixes to their problems
Immediate solutions to Snoring
Stop drinking alcohol
Sorry but alcohol acts as a relaxant to the mouth and pharynx muscles and allows them to be floppier, which then leads to them vibrating when you sleep. Whilst not encouraging a better night’s sleep, alcohol may also mean you may not wake yourself up with your snoring – meaning that you snore longer and without waking up to roll-over etc. Most snorer’s will be aware that snoring is worse directly after a heavy drinking session. Stop drinking completely to get on top of your problem.
Stopping smoking can improve snoring immediately. Chemicals in cigarettes can also affect the mouth and pharynx. The effects are short-term – so the good news is that when you stop those effects go quickly.
No large meals before bed
Large meals may also have an effect on snoring. The process of digestion of these meals relaxes the tongue and throat muscles. Try and take your meal earlier and lessen the quantity. High fat meals are not good and in some spicy foods may also be a trigger.
Whilst vigorous exercise is not recommended directly before bed for a good night’s sleep. Some appropriate exercise through the day is definitely a help for preventing snoring. This is separate to any improvement from weight loss too. Why this happens is not certain but getting moving helps a quieter night’s sleep.
Some report very quick results from supported mouth exercises. Mouth exercises are recommended by the NHS but have tended to be unpopular due to the difficulty in maintaining the correct positions. These are made significantly easier when a specific device is used to place the tongue and pharynx in exactly the correct position rather than unrealistic expectations of taking singing classes.
Snorgo also uses silver-ion technology which is often found in high-end medical care as a method of preventing bacterial and fungal growth. This is an amazing product for the price which is surely going to become a house-hold name.
Mandibular Advancement Devices (MAD)
Mandibular Advancement Devices are usually pieces of plastic worn at night which can have an immediate effect on snoring. There is a large range available. These are less popular as they often tend to be uncomfortable or, at the very least, unsightly, and potentially unhygienic. They work by repositioning the jaw and are reported to be helpful by many.
As described -snoring is a huge problem and people want solutions. The NHS often struggles with offers with limited availability for sleep studies and solutions only to those with sleep apnoea. Those with tiredness as a result of sleep apnoea may be asked to stop driving until a solution if found and that leads to a nervousness in seeking help.
Solutions can be found – many of these involve healthy lifestyle choices such as weight loss, exercise, no alcohol or smoking and healthier diets. These are a challenge and the sufferer may have heard it all before for other symptoms they have. Trying to undertake some of them to a degree may however yield some rewards.
We feel that Snorgo offers one of the few positive – “do something to help yourself” type products, rather than just an abstinence and should seriously be given consideration.
