Understanding why people snore, can help you stop snoring. A major contributing factor to snoring is breathing through your mouth, rather than through your nose when asleep. Sleeping on your back can make the base of your tongue and soft palate collapse to the back wall of your throat, causing a vibrating sound during sleep.
How do I stop snoring?
Many couples try earplugs, nose clips and any number of quack fixes, so desperate are they both for a good night’s sleep. Some take that relationship-threatening next step of sleeping in different beds, and even different bed rooms.
At The SleepGP, we want to help snorers avoid that situation.
Many snorers have Obstructive Sleep Apnoea (OSA) – but not all. Similarly many OSA sufferers snore – but not all. Its complex to diagnose and manage, that’s why we strongly suggest that you seek the advice of your GP, and ultimately a referral to a SleepGP, in case there could be an underlying medical condition.
