Snoring is a medical mishap that takes place during deep sleep…..
Snoring is the vibration of the breathing structures of your mouth and throat while struggling to breathe during sleep.
The resulting loud annoying sound is due to obstructed air movement over and around those structures.
In some cases, snoring can sound soft and goes unnoticed but in most cases snoring is LOUD and Unpleasant.
Snoring during sleep may be a sign Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA).
Researchers suggests that snoring is one of the factors of sleep deprivation.
The Science Behind The Snore…..
Snoring is the result of the relaxation of the uvula and soft palate. These are two tissues located in the mouth and back of the throat. While in deep sleep these tissues relax enough to partially block your airway, resulting in irregular airflow and vibrations.
As you can see in the picture below the tongue, uvula, and soft palate narrow the airway during deep sleep causing that ANNOYING Snore Sound!
Obesity can lead to snoring because as one gains weight, excess fat also accumulates around the neck and throat thereby adding more obstruction to an already problematic area.
4 Tips to Stop or Reduce Snoring Today:
- Lose Weight– excess fat around the neck presses on the throat narrowing the airway.
- Stop Smoking– smoking weakens and literally clogs the throat with built up hazardous residue from chemicals in cigarettes and cigars.
- Avoid Alcohol and Sedatives Before Bedtime– Don’t drink or take things like cold medicine before bed because they may relax the throat and tongue muscles which will narrow the airway.
- Sleep on your side– Sleeping on your side actually stops the tongue from blocking the throat which leads to snoring.
