I stopped my snoring!
An interesting review of a man who has cured snoring and now sleeps like a child!
Snoring is very common. Perhaps as common as common cold or even more common. Statistics have it that about 50% of the total population snore.
With this many snorers, snoring aids manufacturers are making a kill. In recent years, they have increased tremendously as more and more such companies seek to take their share of the cake.
Snoring aids have also evolved from simple ones such as chin straps and nasal sprays to more advanced ones such as the smart pillow and the Nora Smart Snoring Solution.
Many people claim that these aids have helped them a great deal to reduce their snoring while many more claim that they did little or nothing to stop theirs.
If you are a snorer or if you happen to know someone who snores, chances are you have tried or have seen your friends try this or that snoring aid.
However, did you know that you can reduce your snoring without the use of any snoring device?
By a simple adjustment in your diet. By adding some items on the menu and replacing some with others.
I know what you are thinking, and the answer is NO! The foods are pretty easy on your palates.
Here is a list of foods that you should take to stop or reduce snoring.
Some people snore frequently while others snore habitually. During winter, most people are likely to snore as a result of the cold.
This is because of the mucus build up which blocks the airways forcing you to breathe through the mouth hence snore.
Garlic is well known to treat cold by decongesting the airways and reducing the mucus build up.
A clear, mucus-free airway means that you get to breathe normally throughout the night. Normal breathing translates to a snore-free night.
To include garlic in your diet, you could simply use it as an ingredient while cooking. And if you have the stomach for it, you could take it raw. Whichever way you choose, the end result is the same: Snore free sleep!
It has both antispasmodic and anti-inflammatory properties which keep the airways open and prevent swelling respectively.
Add 2-3 drops to water and gargle before bed.
Other oils include eucalyptus, tea tree and thyme essential oils all of which help in reducing or stopping your snoring.
Another way to use these oils is by adding them to hot water and inhaling the steam before sleep.
Tea is a very good decongestant which gets rid of mucus and other things that congest the airways. By keeping the airways open, air flows freely and hence your snoring is reduced if not stopped.
There are a variety of teas to choose from including black tea, white tea, chamomile tea and green tea all of which help in combating snoring.
Lemons and honey can be added to improve the taste as well as help in stopping the snoring.
