Snoring Prevention Using Home Remedies

Stop Snoring Now!

Did you know that there are some simple remedies for snoring prevention, using things you probably already have around your house? Fortunately, there are many remedies for snoring that cost little or nothing.

One type of prevention that doesn’t cost a dime – just a bit of time – is soft palate exercises. These exercises can help the muscles in your throat to get stronger, which helps to improve a snoring problem. When these muscles are weak, they can collapse while you sleep, leading to blocked airways and snoring.

To exercise your soft palate, try this simple exercise:

  • Place the tip of your tongue on the palate
  • With the tip in place, suck hard on the back of your tongue

If you’re doing it correctly, you’ll feel the muscles in your palate tightening and straining. It may take a bit of practice to get the hang of it, but once you figure it out it takes very little time.

Another simple home remedy for snoring is to avoid sleeping on your back. When you’re on your back while asleep, your throat is more likely to collapse and block the airway, leading to snoring.

A simple way to avoid sleeping on your back is to put a tennis ball in a sock and pin the sock to the back of your pajamas.

This way, if you roll onto your back the discomfort will cause you to roll back onto your side, likely without even waking up.

Other simple remedies are not so much treatments as prevention. One of the most common causes of snoring is being overweight. At the risk of oversimplifying things, losing some of the excess weight could have a positive effect on your snoring as well.

Also avoid drinking alcohol in the evenings, for several hours before going to bed. It is a depressant and can lead to the muscles in your throat being more relaxed than normal.

These remedies are not going to be effective for everyone, but they are simple things that you can try before considering other more expensive, and possibly painful alternatives.
