4 Fairly Simple Home Remedies For Snoring Problems
Sleep apnea is an invisible condition since many aren’t aware that they have one. In fact, sleep apnea in Singapore is fairly common among working adults. Thus, the lack of sufficient energy leads to a high risk of workplace and motor accidents.
One of the most commonly known symptoms of sleep apnea is snoring. Snoring in children and women can happen. The more you snore at night and the louder it is, the likelihood that you have sleep apnea is high. Snoring can also disrupt your partner’s sleep. Hence, you should consider treating your snoring problem. Here are the most common simple snoring remedies you can do at home:
1. Use nasal dilator/nasal strips
One of the most common causes of snoring is nasal obstruction or nasal congestion. When we have colds, we tend to breathe harder. If this is the case, you can opt for a nasal strip or dilator without having the need to opt for expensive snoring treatment in Singapore.
2. Avoid smoking and drinking
Smoking and drinking excessively are destructive habits that can affect your sleep routine and quality of life. Nicotine can disrupt your sleep and increase your risk of other conditions. On the other hand, drinking can reduce REM sleep, which is one of the most crucial restorative stages of sleep that your body needs.
3. Sleep on your side
Another simple and effective snoring treatment that every ENT doctor recommends is sleeping on your side instead of sleeping on your back. Sleeping on your back will cause the tongue to roll back and serve as an obstruction in the airway. Hence, sleeping on your side helps prevent this problem—reducing your risk of snoring.
4. Increase the head level of the bed
If you have a bed raiser, you can use it to increase the head part of the bed. Doing this helps prevent obstruction in airway passage. However, if you don’t have a bed raiser, you can simply use pillows to elevate and raise your head level.
