I've seen on television once that snoring may be an indication that you have problems in your internal system. however, i was not able to see the entire show and i was not able to catch the entire explanation regarding snoring. how true is it that snoring is an indication of bad health? and how can we "cure" snoring if there is such a "cure"?

i heard that some cases snoring involves the heart ailment. also if a person is too much stressed out, he/she may snore during sleep. no clear idea about the cure though.

snoring occurs when there is an obstruction to the free flow of air thru the passages at the back of the mouth and nose during sleep. i'm not sure what causes the obstruction. normally i don't snore, but i know that when i had a long day and am very exhausted, i do. about the cure for those who have snoring probs, i heard of 'breatheright', they said it helps. they come in strips, throat rinse, and spray. check it out.

Snoring can be a sign of sleep apnea where you have instances during your sleep of not breathing. Its very common actually.

i personally agree with this theory . Coz when i was going to gym regularly i was not snoring . after being too lazy for a few years without exercise, i started to snore to my spouse's dismay. So now i am hitting the gym again. Some over the counter patch is available in the pharmacy . try sleeping on your side and this will stop snoring as well. ( try it and see :) )
