8 Ways To Stop Snoring

Breathe easy at night while improving your partner's morning mood with these simple snoring solutions.

Picture a river that’s headed to a crevice, says Dr. Richard Horner. As the passage narrows, the water starts to get more turbulent. That’s similar to what happens when we snore, explains Dr. Horner, an Associate Professor at the University of Toronto, and Canada Research Chair in Sleep and Respiratory Neurobiology. Your airway may be narrow or your airflow is obstructed, and the vibrations when you breathe cause the sound of snoring.

What causes such narrowing? For some people, it’s genetics; they’re just born with a narrower throat. For others, age is a factor; as you get older, you have less muscle tone in your throat. You may not be able to do much about genetics or age, but these solutions can help you take steps to reduce your tendency to snore by addressing other triggers.

1. Change Sleep Positions

"Some people have positional snoring," Dr. Horner says. If you're on your back, gravity makes your tongue and the soft tissue at the back of your throat more likely to slide back and block your airway. Sleeping on your side can alleviate the problem.

2. Keep Your Head Back

Bending your neck can constrict your airflow. Try removing some pillows, says Horner, or lying flatter. 

3. Lose Weight

Consider a combination of healthier eating and exercise to shed some pounds. There’s a strong relationship between obesity and snoring. The reason – excess weight around the neck and chest puts pressure on the muscles used for breathing.

4. Avoid Alcohol Close to Bedtime

Alcohol makes your muscles relax, including your airway. Try cutting off your drinking at least a few hours before sleep, says Angela Smith of the Queensway Carleton Hospital Sleep Centre in Ottawa.

5. Skip Muscle Relaxants

Skip them for the same reason as alcohol - they relax your muscles. Your cutoff time depends on what you take and how long-acting the medication is; talk to your doctor or pharmacist.

6. Quit Smoking

Aside from its well-known health dangers, smoking also irritates your airway and causes inflammation. 

7. Fight Nasal Congestion

Congestion from allergies or colds makes it harder to breathe, forcing increased suction that also contributes to snoring. Decongestants, allergy medication, and products that open your nasal passages (i.e. nasal strips) can all help.

8. Increase Humidity

Using a humidifier in the bedroom, or making sure that your furnace and humidifier are in good working order, can reduce dryness and stuffiness in the home. That can help keep your nasal passages clear.

Why Causes Snooring is the New Black

Comfortable and Effective Anti-snoring Product!

How it works - Snoring research has shown that a jaw supporter, keeping the lower jaw in an upward position increases the three dimensional space in the airway, reduces air velocity and soft tissue vibration. This action can eliminate or substantially reduce snoring.

Are You Snoring Yourself To Death?

5 years ago I almost died from obstructive sleep apnea (OSA.) My nights were filled with multiple bathroom trips, kicking and punching while sleeping and deprivation of restful sleep. As I awoke one morning, eyes blood shot and completely exhausted from literally fighting for my life all night, it was then, lying on my back in bed I decided to go and get a CPAP. It was either get help or die.
Later in the day, I drove across town to the medical supply store where I learned I had to have a prescription in order to buy a CPAP machine. The technician explained that I could obtain a prescription after I participated in a sleep study (polysomnography.) I called the doctor's office from my cell phone and learned the shocking news: It would take about 3 months to get into a sleep clinic for a polysomnography. I told the person on the phone, "I'll be dead in 3 months." I thanked her and ended the call.
On the drive home I kept saying over and over to myself, "If I could just keep my mouth closed while I'm sleeping, I wouldn't be able to have the episode.” I felt that OSA was a mechanical failure of the jaw and it seemed to reason that if I could keep my jaw up while I was sleeping, then my tongue couldn't fall back far enough to close off my air.
I arrived home late in the afternoon where I took a bath towel and ripped a 2" strip down one side. I took the strip, placed it under my chin and wrapped each end over the top of my head and tied a knot. Now my jaw was "supported," so to speak. I could still talk or take a drink of water, but the jaw would not be able to fall excessively backwards when I entered REM (deep) sleep. Then, I laid down on my bed and went to sleep.
Twelve hours later I woke up, lying there staring into my glowing wrist watch and doing the math 3 times: I'd actually been asleep for 12 hours without waking up. As I sat up on the edge of my bed, I could feel renewed strength and vitality. I don’t have the words to tell you what that moment felt like, I just remember thinking, "There are a lot of other people who need to know about this." And the My Snoring Solution jaw supporter was born.
During the past 5 years the My Snoring Solution jaw supporter has in my opinion evolved into a comfortable and effective jaw supporter. Before, my snoring echoed throughout the house. Now, when I sleep my kids have to turn the light on to see if I'm in the room.

Snoring and Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) Defined

When the jaw opens and the tongue falls into the back of the throat, the airway narrows forcing air through the small opening. This creates vibrations in the throat known as snoring. Like allergies, you probably weren't born with a snore. Rather, you acquired it over time.
Many people begin sleeping with their mouth open at about 5 years of age. Gradually, muscle tissues in the mouth and throat can be stretched beyond their intended range. When this happens, snoring and the health risks associated with OSA increase. An effective jaw supporter holds the lower jaw upward and helps re-train tissue in the mouth and throat. Whether immediate, or gradual a reduction in snoring and OSA often occurs.
OSA episodes occur when the tongue or soft tissues of the throat or soft palate collapse onto the back wall of the upper airway, forming a blockage that prevents air from entering the lungs. The negative pressure of inhaling pulls harder on your tongue, sealing the airway tightly.
To resume breathing, the person must awaken (although one rarely remembers the awakening) and create tension in the tongue and throat tissue. This process opens the airway and causes a distinctive snorting sound. Within a short period of time this process often repeats itself. Several hundred OSA episodes during an 8-hour sleep time are not uncommon. Consequently, the repetition of OSA episodes can cause chronic fatigue and other major health problems.
During the REM stage is when your major muscle groups (heart, etc.) relax. Without adequate REM sleep, your chances of heart failure are much greater than average. According to the National Sleep foundation 70% of all congestive heart failure and 60% of all strokes are directly related to some form of sleep disorder, primarily OSA.
Proper REM sleep eliminates many OSA symptoms during sleep time including: Limb jerking, punching, kicking, loud snorting, cessation of breathing, excessive daytime irritability, daytime fatigue, memory problems, poor concentration skills, heartburn, acid reflux, multiple trips to urinate during sleep time, depression, ADHD symptoms, loss of motivation and loss of motor skills.

How a Jaw Supporter Can Help Prevent Snoring and OSA

Snoring research has shown that a jaw supporter (worn during sleep time) that keeps the lower jaw in an upward position increases the three dimensional space in the airway tube which reduces air velocity and soft tissue vibration. By increasing the volumetric capacity of the airway and preventing soft tissue vibrations, snoring can be eliminated or substantially reduced. The My Snoring Solution jaw supporter comfortably keeps the lower jaw in an upward/forward position and increases three-dimensional space in the airway.
A jaw supporter is based on the same principle as CPR. The airway must be open to allow air to pass through the throat. A constricted or collapsed airway causes snoring and/or OSA. A jaw supporter can hold the lower jaw in a position so that it does not fall backwards/down during the night and cause the airway to collapse. Maintaining a clear airway improves breathing and reduces snoring.
The My Snoring Solution jaw supporter may help provide healthy REM sleep and normal jaw positioning, reducing the OSA associated health risks without the need for surgery, medications, cumbersome devices or therapy. Current CPAP users may discover wearing a jaw supporter improves the comfort and effectiveness of their CPAP. Additionally, some CPAP users report that they are able to stop using CPAP while wearing a jaw supporter.

Clinical Trial Test Results For The My Snoring Solution Brand Jaw Supporter


The initial small scale sleep study consisted of ten patients who were tested and diagnosed with OSA. See "TABLE 1 - Baseline Study" [below.]
Approximately 2 years later the same ten patients participated in an additional sleep study. See "TABLE 2" [below.] During the second study the participants slept through the night using the Jaw Supporter. The study information is posted specifically for the purpose of comparing the number of snores and OSA episodes of the participants during the two studies. Some patients experienced:
  • A substantial reduction in the number of OSA episodes
  • A substantial reduction in the number of snores
  • Lower blood pressure readings in the morning
Most experienced: An increase in their oxygen saturation level.

Lack of Sleep and Attention Deficit Disorder ADD Symptoms Seen In Patients with Sleep Apnea

WPXI-PITTSBURGH -- Can trouble sleeping affect an asthmatic's condition? Can it cause someone to develop the symptoms of attention deficit disorder?
New research says both are true.
Researchers at the big lung and critical care medicine meeting say that lack of sleep can play a role in both the day and night symptoms of asthma, and that sleep problems ranging from simple insomnia to sleep apnea can cause someone to have attention deficit disorder. "You seem short of breath and it gets worse and worse and then suddenly you can't breathe. It's like somebody strangling you." Mary Kane has asthma.
But her problems may not be limited to just breathing.
New research presented at the American College of Chest Physician's Annual Meeting shows asthmatics on the whole suffer significant sleep quality disturbances, and in turn, end up being sleepy during the daytime.
"So we have 487 patients, which I believe makes it the, of not one of the largest trials to look at sleep and asthma. And we found that their sleep is pretty bad. A full 30 percent of them categorize their sleep as poor or bad," says Dr. John Mastronarde, study researcher at Ohio State University.
50 percent of the patients studied reported waking up every night more than three times a week. The sleep disturbances translated into daytime sleepiness.
"We know from previous data in the literature that that has a significant consequences for public health, folks who are sleepy in the day have a high risk for car accidents, poor performance at work, etc," Mastronarde states.
There is also a chicken-egg scenario, in that the researchers found that not only does asthma create bad sleep, but that bad sleep in and of itself can worsen an asthmatic's breathing.
"We saw if your sleep is worse and then it gets better we saw that your overall quality of asthma got better as well," says Mastronarde.
Other research presented shows those with sleep apnea, a condition where a person stops breathing hundreds of times a night, can develop have a worsening of attention deficit disorder.
Of the patients studied with moderate to severe attention problems, 60 percent had their ADHD resolved after being placed on CPAP. The researchers believe that it doesn't just apply to sleep apnea, that any sleep problem can create ADHD-type symptoms.
Dr. Clifford Risk, the author of the study from the Marlboro Center for Sleep Disorders, says, "If they have ADHD the doctor should be asking them how their sleep is, do you snore or have sleep apnea and/or do you have insomnia at night?"
ADD symptoms were seen in patients with sleep apnea who had no prior history or evidence of ADD, meaning, the daytime sleepiness can actually cause add type symptoms.

Treatment of Obstructive Sleep Apnea with a Chinstrap

Recently, anesthesiologists* in Japan released clinical trial information that demonstrates how a chinstrap alone improved obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) symptoms as well as or better than the use of continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP.) After obtaining permission from Kochi Municipal Hospital, the anesthesiologists conducted a limited pilot study that included 30 patients.
In the study, the use of CPAP shows substantial improvement in the patient’s OSA. However, the chinstrap appeared even more effective than CPAP. Additionally, the chinstrap improved the AHI better than CPAP and did not provoke the onset of sleep apnea episodes.
The anesthesiologists went on to report, “Maneuvers such as chin lift and jaw thrust improve airway patency and ventilation in anesthetized, spontaneously breathing children as well as in adults. In conclusion, lateral positioning combined with common airway maneuvers significantly improved airway patency.”
OSA symptoms are often responsible for daytime sleepiness, motor vehicle crashes, hypertension, heart disease, and stroke. Treatments include weight loss, limiting alcohol consumption, CPAP, dental appliances and surgical interventions. *Young-Chang P.
