If you are affected by regular or particularly loud snoring you may have come across CPAP in your search for ways to stop snoring. The good news is that only a proportion of snorers require CPAP. The NHS website provides a helpful list for those that may wish to seek professional health advice about their own snoring and it can be accessed on this link. Please follow their advice.

This article is not a specific health article for those with sleep apnoea who need to seek help. 

Introduction – Stop Snoring without CPAP.

In this article, we address how you could stop snoring without a CPAP. We look at how CPAP has been considered the gold standard for treatment. We note how its users sometimes don’t view it that way. Also why they want to explore alternative options or help themselves before requiring CPAP.

 

What is CPAP?

CPAP is arguably the current gold standard of treatment for sleep disorders such as obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). If you don’t have a sleep disorder and are looking for ways to tackle sleep-disrupting snoring effectively, particularly without wearing a cumbersome oxygen mask while you sleep, we can share a tried and tested way to stop snoring without a CPAP. Along with this article, you may wish to check out Improving your Snoring to help.

What is Snorgo?

Snorgo is a small mouth-held device that you use to complete a series of simple daily exercises at times that are convenient to you. By using Snorgo to train the muscles around the nose, throat and neck, they will become stronger and lean enough to reduce the vibrations of excess tissue in our airways that are responsible for snoring. As a result, snoring will be reduced and often cured. We recommend using Snorgo to complete 3 sets of 10 second exercises, 3 times a day. With regular use 75% of those tested said Snorgo provided marked improvement or cure and all those who tried it were happy with their trial and outcomes.

 

Snorgo – The Evidence

This evidence above included the partner of the snorer too! An independent trial backing these results was supported by The Innovation Agency who are part of The Academic Health Science Network which is funded by the NHS. They support small UK businesses with good potential future health products.

If you don’t have a sleep disorder such as sleep apnea, the use of CPAP therapy isn’t required or advised for those seeking a cure for regular snoring. With nearly half of people known to snore at some point in their lives, most can’t attribute their snoring to a specific sleep disorder. If this sounds like you, a simple, DIY approach to curing snoring with Snorgo could be just the route for you!

 


 

In this article, we will focus on why we snore in the first place. Then we’ll describe the simple steps you can take yourself to cure snoring yourself. All without the need for expensive masks or therapy. 

 

Why Do We Snore? 

Snoring is simple noisy breathing as we sleep. When we take in air through our nose or mouth while sleeping, the movement of air causes the relaxed tissue in the throat and nasal passages to vibrate. It’s these vibrations that result in the sound of snoring. 

Why do we snore?

 

If you are aware that you snore frequently, loudly or particularly disruptively, you should review your snoring. You could have; excess relaxed tissue in and around your airways, narrower airways or longer airways. All make snoring more likely. Each of these factors can lead to obstructions, or to the airways partially collapsing, which both in turn increase snoring. You should undergo a review by a healthcare professional to rule out sleep apnoea. If you don’t require treatment for this you still have a problem. Other options are then available. 

 

How Does Snorgo Work To Stop Snoring without CPAP

Snorgo is a British designed and manufactured product. It 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. A further independent study run has shown similar results. This was run by The Innovation Agency NW.

By strengthening the muscles around your airways with  Snorgo, you reduce the problems floppy of floppy tissues. This results in less snoring. When using Snorgo in conjunction with the lifestyle changes, outlined later, things get better. 

One of the best things about using Snorgo to cure snoring is that it isn’t used at night time. Wearing a mask while you sleep makes some feel claustrophobic. Use Snorgo at your convenience during the day, with nothing to think about at night. This is a great option for you to prevent uncomfortable plastic at bay.

 

How To Complete Snorgo Exercises 

If you think this all sounds great but are wondering what Snorgo actually looks like and how the exercises work, view this short video to find out everything you need to know.

You only need to find 3-4 minutes a day to train the muscles that can prevent snoring – much more appealing than the hours in the gym that you need to train the rest of your body when looking for long term results! With regular training, the muscles in the space behind our nose and throat get stronger and leaner leading to a reduction in snoring causing vibrations that occur as you breathe while you sleep.

When you’re ready to complete a set of Snorgo exercises, sit down and place your Snorgo device in the pre-dental area of your mouth – the space between your lips and your front teeth. Then form a seal and gently apply a pulling force with your hands. At this point, your job is to resist this force for 10 seconds and when complete, that is your first set of Snorgo exercises done! For the best results, repeat this 10-second hold 3 times, 3 times a day and you will be well on your way to a peaceful night’s sleep.
