Do you suffer from snoring? Here at Slumber Slumber, we value your sleep so have created a handy snoring guide so you can tackle your snoring and get back to sleeping soundly at night.
There are many causes of snoring and this guide to snoring is designed to help you find solutions and is not an alternative to medical advice.
A pillow that does not support your neck and head properly can cause snoring. If your head and neck are not properly supported your airways can be restricted as a result this puts undue stress on your throat muscles and causes snoring.
The Tempur Original range of pillows is waved shaped with two heights to offer an optimal sleeping posture. The memory foam inner moulds to the shape of your head and neck giving you extra support and as a result, helps to keep your airways open.
Dunlopillo Kontour has been designed to give you support and comfort. The wave shape offers two height levels and Dunlopillo’s natural latex filling offers cooling comfort with its unique pores that let excess heat escape. This pillow is ideal for helping keep your airways open and offering superb comfort.
Many people suffer from allergies particularly in the bedroom, dust mites can cause inflammation in the nose and throat and this can cause snoring.
Anti-allergy bedding such as Allersafe is blended with Amicor Pure Acrylic Fibre that inhibits the growth and development of dust mites. Snoring that is caused by a dust mite allergy brings the dual distress of irritated throat and nose combined with snoring. The Allersafe range of bedding can prevent the allergic reaction and improve snoring.
Mouth and Nose
Mouth: Open your mouth and try to make a snoring noise. Then close your mouth and try and make the same noise. If you can only make the noise with your mouth open you’re a mouth breather.
Nose: Allergies can cause your nose to swell and prevent correct breathing patterns. Therefore using anti-allergy bedding could be one option, as mentioned above.
The Good Night Anti Snore Ring uses acupressure to help eliminate snoring and work in harmony with your body’s biorhythms. The ring uses two acupressure points, SI2 & HT9 to help alleviate snoring and increase the natural flow of your body’s energy. We are so confident that if you are not satisfied with the ring within the first 30 days we offer a money back guarantee!
Studies show that by performing simple mouth exercises, like pronouncing certain vowel sounds and exercising the tongue in specific ways, the muscles in your mouth are strengthened and can, therefore, reduce snoring.
The following exercises can help to do this;
- Repeat each vowel (a-e-i-o-u) out loud for three minutes a few times a day.
- Place the tip of your tongue behind your top front teeth. Slide your tongue backwards for three minutes a day.
- Close your mouth and purse your lips. Hold for 30 seconds.
- With your mouth open, move your jaw to the right and hold for 30 seconds. Repeat on the left side.
- With your mouth open, contract the muscle at the back of your throat repeatedly for 30 seconds.
- For a more fun exercise, simply spend time singing. Singing can increase muscle control in the throat and soft palate, reducing snoring caused by relaxed muscles1.
