Nights don't have to be noisy!

Believe it or not just about everyone snores occasionally. But snoring can affect the quantity and quality of your sleep. Poor sleep can lead to daytime fatigue, irritability and increased health problems. And, if your snoring is so loud that your bed partner can't sleep, you may end up being banished from the bedroom! Sleeping in separate bedrooms doesn't have to be the remedy for your snoring. Discovering the cause of your snoring and finding the right cure will vastly improve your health, your relationships, and, of course, your sleep.

It makes sense to try some simple non-invasive treatments first to see if they will reduce or prevent your snoring.

  • Sleep on your side
  • Elevate the head of your bed or sleep with an extra pillow
  • Limit alcohol and medications
  • Clear your nasal passages
  • Lose weight

You may find that your snoring persists even after trying these changes. If your snoring results from a more serious cause, a cure may be more complex – but there are solutions.

Snoring and why it happens …

The noises produced by snoring are generated by the vibration of areas of soft tissues in the throat. Sleeping encourages a natural relaxation of the muscle tone in the neck and pharynx and the airway tends to close in slightly, meaning that the inhaled air has to fit through a smaller space. This generates vibration of the tissues in the pharyngeal space as the required volume of air must be respired at a faster rate to deliver the same quantity of air.
