No More Snoring While Sleeping on Back ”
If you’re a backsleeper, snoring might be an issue. Especially if you’re sharing the bed with your spouse, dog, cat, etc. There are reasons why this happens, and we have found a few solutions that might help.
As Mayo Clinic reports, about half of all grown-up Americans snore. Appearing as a petty problem at first, snoring might be a symptom of an unfavorable medical condition. And according to sleepingmola.com, it also can ruin the nighttime rest for your partner.
We know how the physiological mechanics behind snoring work. It’s simply an airflow that makes your relaxed throat vibrate like a bagpipe. But why does it even happen? Well, there are several reasons:
- Excessive drinking or smoking.
- Problems with your body’s breathing system: nose, throat, mouth, etc.
Sleep disorders are to blame as well, as a lot of snorers actually suffer from Obtrusive Sleep Apnea (OSA). This is probably the worst case, as people with OSA are the loudest snorers who can be as loud as 50-60 decibels — this is enough to make the walls vibrate!
As a result, constant snoring seriously hurts you. Here are some of the ‘gifts’ it brings:
- Lower energy.
- Morning migraine.
- Chest pains and breathing problems.
- Decreased productivity, shorter attention span, and light depression.
In the long run, snoring can seriously affect your life’s quality. An important meeting at work, school exam, job interview, or just enjoying the day — all of it can be jeopardized due to this nocturnal nuisance.
So, What to Do?
Medical science still struggles with the plague of snoring. But there are a few tips that can help all snorers, including backsleepers.
If sleeping tummy-up style is your favorite position ever and changing it is not an option at all, then consider the following.
The bigger your body is, the more resonant area your breathing gets. Diet and working out are your best allies. Not only will they burn calories, but also help your body reduce the amount of soft tissue inside the throat. As a result, snoring will lose its ‘bagpipe’.
A nasal strip is a tiny medical device that reduces snoring. It extends your nasal passage, making inhaling/exhaling much easier. A similar remedy is a nasal dilator. It must be placed across the nostrils before going to bed. Palatal implants and CPAP can also help.
Allergies can also be a trigger. Do you share your bed with a cat/fluffy dog? Are there any exotic plants inside your bedroom? Does your partner apply any facial cream before going to bed? Remove a possible allergy source and get a prescription for an anti-allergy medication.
Don’t take any sleep aid, sedatives, medicinal marijuana, or alcohol before sleeping. Also, abstain from smoking at least an hour and a half before you go to bed.
A brand-new remedy, somnoplasty can solve the problem. Using radio frequencies makes the throat tissues shrink in size. As a result, the airflow stops ‘strumming’ them.
Snore No More
