Quick Ways to Get Some Snoring Relief

Mar 23, 2008
There is probably nothing in the world quite like a good night's sleep. We look forward to it at the end of a long, hard day, and feel amazingly refreshed after we've had it. Not only does sleep make us feel good, we need it for our health and even for our lives. But if you're sleep is being interrupted by the annoying habit of snoring, relief may be a bit easier than you think. Of course some cases should be addressed by a doctor and in certain circumstances extreme snoring or loud, gasping breaths may be the sign of something more serious, but for most you can some snoring relief just be making a few adjustments to your sleeping arrangements.

Sometimes snoring relief is as easy as adjusting the temperature and humidity of your bedroom. When the air is very dry, the throat tissue and membranes become dry as well and this causes or increases snoring. There have been many that have found putting a good humidifier or warm mist vaporizer in their bedroom can give them a tremendous amount of snoring relief. Many vaporizers also have a place where you can add some medicine or inhalants, such as menthol or eucalyptus. This type of material also provides snoring relief because it opens up the nasal passages.

When your nose and sinuses are clogged, you are more likely to breathe through your mouth which is what causes snoring in the first place. There are also many sounds that a clogged nose makes when you breathe that we refer to as snoring, even though this is not technically accurate. However, whatever words you want to use and whatever sounds you're hearing because of labored breathing at night, you may find that a good humidifier or vaporizer, especially one with a mist feature, can give you a tremendous amount of snoring relief.

You may also find that propping yourself up just a little bit can give you some snoring relief. When you're sleeping on your back you may find that your head has a tendency to fall backwards and your mouth falls open. This too causes snoring. Even if your room is warm and humid, the air passing over the throat tissues and membranes causes them to dry out and you begin to snore. While there are many snoring pillows available on the market, sometimes just a regular pillow that is a bit firmer than usual can give you some snoring relief. If you want to keep yourself from sleeping on your back, try a few pillows propped up behind your back and one hip. This can keep you from rolling over in your sleep.

Some have found that using some natural oils under their nose or on their chest brings them some snoring relief. Eucalyptus and menthol are two good choices. You can usually find these at any pharmacy or health food store. Just by touching a few drops to your chin or chest, you can keep your sinus passages open all night. Some have also found that marjoram oil works well, although you don't usually apply this to your skin. Marjoram oil is typically sold in jars and you simply open the lid at night and leave it open next to your bed. The aroma fills the room and provides snoring relief all night. It will eventually evaporate so you may need to purchase a new supply every month or so, but this is probably a small price to pay for such reliable and downright enjoyable snoring relief.

If none of these remedies work for you, it's time to consult your doctor for long-term snoring relief.
