Some people snore so loud at night that it is hard for one to go to sleep. My father was a loud snorer. He snored as soon as he slept but he was a light sleeper. My mother often scolded him for not making her sleep. It is hard because one doesn't even know that in her sleep, she is snoring too loud and her partner could not sleep. Do any of you mylotters know of a cure to snoring???????Thanks.

I guess snoring results from hyperactiveness of the body while awake. And when you feel very exhausted during the day, you will likely to snore when you get to sleep. I would suggest you would do a few stretching before going to bed, or drink warm milk to relax your body before finally going to sleep. And lie on your side not on your back. This will minimize if not totally cure snoring.

Have you tried those breath rite strips yet? They are suppose to help. They also have the throat spray.I know how irritating it can be when you are trying to sleep. I used to wear the plugs to but they didn't have the strips out then. Good luck.

Actually I was a pretty bad snorer myself. My husband would be always end up sleeping on the couch because I just kept him up. I honestly believe it was due to my weight. I've lost about 20 lbs and now my husband sleeps with me the whole night. He says very rare that he'll hear me snore now. That's worked for me. I've tried the over the counter sprays and those things that go on the nose. None of that worked for me. But losing the weight sure did.

I've heard that Breathe Right nasal strips can help with snoring. I've never tried using them for snoring, but I do use them for nasal congestion and they work amazingly! You just stick them on your nose, and they open up your nasal airways. Breathe Right also has a whole line of Snore Relief products including throat strips, throat rinses and throat sprays. They work to lubricate throat tissues which reduces snoring. I'm sure that using a combination of Snore Relief throat products and nasal strips can make a huge difference in someone who snores. Their website is http://www.breatheright.com

Growing up I can remember my parents and even my grandparents snoring really loud. It can be very annoying. Now that I'm married with children my husband snores. One thing you can try are the breathe right nose strips. They seem to help some people. What works for my husband is laying on his side instead of his back. Of course I have to wake him and let him know he needs to roll over. Also you can try a vaporizer.

You should try lying down sideways. I think snoring they say is a breathing disorder. If someone snores, they said that something is wrong with his or her airway. I guess if someone also is really tired and tends to snore loudly enough to wake the neighbors hehehehe! Have a great day!

The nose is the public information officer of the lungs. Snoring is telling others that this body is tensed, so the nose gives music. . either loud or soft. Just give the back of the body a good massage to make the muscles and nerves be relaxed. No need of medicines or chemicals, just make the muscles and nerves be loose and relax.
