If you carrying around extra body weight, this excess weight, especially around the neck, can cause the throat to narrow when you lay down. This creates a higher incidence of snoring. For instance, in a study published in Lung India, “neck circumference of snorers was significantly more than the neck circumference of non-snorers in all BMI groups.” (10) This shows the greater the neck circumference, which is more typical in those who are overweight, plays a pivotal role in snoring.

Some Tongue Stabilizing Devices (TSD) work by sucking the tongue forward – essentially out of the mouth, or stabilizing the tongue out of the way . My moving the tongue forward, or downward, there is increase open space in the back of the throat. This decrease the amount of tissues that can vibrate in the back of the throat – basically reducing or eliminating snoring.
If you—or a loved one—is a chronic snorer, you should do something about it pronto: Serious snoring can signal sleep apnea, a very dangerous condition. A new study from the National Center for Biotechnology Information suggests there may be a simple solution, though, and it’s as easy as standing up. Also, don’t miss these home remedies to stop snoring now.
One issue with the AirSnore is that it is not adjustable. While you can do the boil-and-bite method again in order to recreate your impression, the mouthpiece cannot be adjusted beyond that. This makes it more challenging to find the right fit and setting. It also may have a shorter shelf-life than some other products, and while it is made in FDA-cleared facilities, the device itself has not been reviewed by FDA.
So ladies, if you do snore you should not feel embarrassed or alone, you are definitely not unique, there are in fact many women that also snores. Snoring and sleep apnea is not a `man thing’ and does not favor anyone no matter who you are, and yes, even famous movie stars also snore. There is one thing that you could feel comforted by, and that is that women tend to snore less intensely and therefore softer.
Do not order from Zen Sleep. I bought the device and it was very uncomfortable so I gave it about 4 nights but I was unable to fall asleep with it. I then tried to return it but they make you get an RMA number and they don’t answer there phone or return messages left. They also have an auto response on the email and never send you the RMA number to return the funds. False advertising. Scam company.
Getting enough hours of sleep. People snore when they sleep but not while awake because when we sleep, the muscles in our body relax.  This muscle relaxation allows the muscles, especially the soft palate (back of the roof of the mouth), to vibrate and produce the sounds of snoring.  Deep sleep has more muscle relaxation than light sleep, making deep sleep a time of worsening in snoring.  While we all need deep sleep to feel well-rested, not getting enough hours of sleep pushes our body to want more deep sleep than we might have otherwise.  The result is that the snoring can be much worse.  The general health recommendations are for people to get 7-7.5 hours of sleep per night, and this is a good rule of thumb for people who snore as well.

There are so many bizarre anti-snoring devices available on the market today, with more being added all the time, that finding the right solution for your snoring can seem like a daunting task. Unfortunately, many of these devices are not backed up by research, or they work by simply keeping you awake at night. There are, however, plenty of proven techniques that can help eliminate snoring. Not every remedy is right for every person, though, so putting a stop to your snoring may require patience, lifestyle changes, and a willingness to experiment with different solutions.
CPAP machines. If your snoring is out of control it may be a good indicator that you have sleep apneaand you may want to talk with your physician about a sleep study consultation. CPAP, or Continuous Positive Airway Pressure, is a device that uses mild air pressure to keep your airways open. There are a variety of devices that come in all shapes and sizes to accommodate your comfort level including nasal pillows, nasal masks, and full face masks.
Mouth snoring, i.e., flabby tissue in the palatal region, can lead to obstructive sleep apnea as well. This is the case when loose tissue from the upper oral cavity (palatal arch and adjacent tissue areas) “hangs” backwards towards the upper airways, thus narrowing them or closing them off. Again, it is essential that you consult an ENT physician or a somnologist to clarify the matter. Breathing stops can be dangerous. Therapy in this instance can range from CPAP to EPAP to special anti-snore braces (RonchAP) or surgery.
A 2014 study published in the journal Sleep Medicine found that low levels of physical activity increase the risk for snoring in women—and that getting more exercise activity can lower that risk. Exercise improves all-around muscle tone—including the muscles in your face, neck, and throat, which help to keep your airway open while you sleep. Regular exercise delivers a wealth of benefits for sleep: You’ll snooze sounder and longer. Don’t miss these other tips for better sleep from sleep doctors.
New studies associate loud "snoring" with the development of carotid artery atherosclerosis.[7] Amatoury et al.[8] demonstrated that snoring vibrations are transmitted to the carotid artery, identifying a possible mechanism for snoring-associated carotid artery damage and atherosclerotic plaque development. These researchers also found amplification of the snoring energy within the carotid lumen at certain frequencies, adding to this scenario. Vibration of the carotid artery with snoring also lends itself as a potential mechanism for atherosclerotic plaque rupture and consequently ischemic stroke.[8] Researchers also hypothesize that loud snoring could create turbulence in carotid artery blood flow.[9] Generally speaking, increased turbulence irritates blood cells and has previously been implicated as a cause of atherosclerosis. While there is plausibility and initial evidence to support snoring as an independent source of carotid artery/cardiovascular disease, additional research is required to further clarify this hypothesis.[10]
Many products claim to help with snoring, but few of them are backed by solid research. One potentially effective option is wearing an anti-snoring mouth appliance, which pulls the jaw (along with the tongue) slightly forward to open the upper airway. An appliance made by a dentist can cost around $1,000. Do-it-yourself kits cost much less, but may not be as well tailored to your mouth.
Some businesses use these tests to ensure that their employees are not excessively sleepy while at work. Specifically, airline pilots and truck drivers who experience sleepiness need to have a test to ensure public safety and productivity at work. Unfortunately, there is no test that will guarantee that someone will not fall asleep at his or her job or while driving.
The Good Morning Snore Solution is a tongue restraining device produced by MPowrx, a Canadian company with an A+ rating from the Better Business Bureau. The device is made of silicon and draws the tongue forward so that it does not block or obstruct the airway. The device has been cleared by the U.S. FDA as well as Canadian health authorities and has been well-received by customers and has performed well in research studies examining its efficacy. As a TRD, it does not require any special fitting and can be used by people with dentures.
Deepsleepro went the other way and launched universal treatment against snoring and teeth grinding during sleep. A kappa is made of medical silicone and resembles an infant pacifier. It is fixed on the tongue in the mouth and holds the tongue in a position where the tongue retraction and consequent snoring become impossible. In addition, the design eliminates contact of the upper and lower jaws and teeth grinding. Compress the silicone bead before going to bed, and attach it to the tongue so that the device is retained during sleep. The downside of the product is the funny look of a person sleeping with this device.

Nasal strips such as ‘Breathe Right’ appear to reduce snoring in some patients through opening the nasal passages, but there are no published scientific studies which definitely prove that these strips do in fact assist significantly with snoring.  These strips probably have their main place in the 5-10% of individuals whose nostrils collapse during inspiration. 

MADs prevent blockage by pulling and holding the tongue and the muscles around it and the airway forward. The tissue tightens with the MAD in place, and the airway opens and remains open through the night as the anti-snoring mouthpiece is worn. Thus, the airway remains open and air can flow through the air passages without obstruction. When breathing is unobstructed, most types of snoring will stop completely.

The second most common cause of snoring is the tongue relaxing, falling back into the throat and constricting or blocking the airways while asleep. So what can you do against this type of snoring? Because this problem only occurs when sleeping on the back, there is an easy fix to it: Try sleeping on the side (ideal) or consider sleeping in a prone position. Positional therapy (position trainers) can facilitate the transition from sleeping on your back to sleeping on the side.


Snoring in women can be caused by the same factors as that of men, but women can also have other causes that men do not have and these symptoms are sometimes not diagnosed correctly. These symptoms identify the difference between men and women, as hormones and airway anatomy are the main additional symptoms that women possess. As a result of these symptoms, the snoring condition in women sometimes remains undiagnosed as the symptoms are mostly treated and not the underlining condition, as said above.
Sleep is so important to our health and wellbeing that if it isn’t free of disruptive snoring then we can find ourselves left open to illness, relationship issues and poor productivity both at work and home. And who needs that kind of extra stress in their lives, especially when it can be so easily avoided! That’s why during my years of testing anti-snoring devices the VitalSleep - sold as a mandibular[...]

Treatment of tonsillitis and adenoids include antibiotics, over-the-counter medications, and home remedies to relieve pain and inflammation, for example,  salt water gargle, slippery elm throat lozenges, sipping warm beverages and eating frozen foods (ice cream, popsicles), serrapeptase, papain, and andrographism Some people with chronic tonsillitis may need surgery (tonsillectomy or adenoidectomy ).


This is nothing more than a knock off product. It has a filter in it that is not washable so if you use it in an area where there is a bad Oder that Oder gets trapped in the filter and can't get washed out. It does not push air into the nasal cavity like the one advertised that I wanted but looks exactly like it. It was not clear from the product description what the difference was. This product is no better than other smaller lighter weight in the nose products I have tried. The only thing it does is open the nasal cavity. Sleep Apnea is where the back of the throat where air enters is covered up by extra skin and stops breathing. Opening up the nasal passages is not going to solve this problem. Having air forced into the nasal passages causes a natural reflex to inhale which moves the skin out of the way for a proper breath of air. This product should not be allowed to advertise that it is for Sleep Apnea at all and there by miss lead customers into believing they are getting a mini nasal air pump to free them up from the noisy, movement limiting, over the face, hose dangling traditional Sleep Apnea machines most doctors prescribe. I wish I could get my money back.
Though snoring is often considered a minor affliction, snorers can sometimes suffer severe impairment of lifestyle. The between-subjects trial by Armstrong et al. discovered a statistically significant improvement in marital relations after snoring was surgically corrected. This was confirmed by evidence from Gall et al.,[4] Cartwright and Knight[5] and Fitzpatrick et al.[6]
Watch what you eat. Heavy meals before bed disrupt sleep and may worsen your snoring. For more restful sleep, eat dinner at least a few hours before bed, and enjoy a late snack of one of these sleep-healthy foods if you get peckish. If you’re overweight, commit to eating healthier foods and work with a nutritionist to develop a diet you can stick to. The more you can reduce the fatty tissue around your throat, the easier it will be for you to breathe at night.
Oximetry is a procedure used to measure the concentration of oxygen in the blood. Oximetry is used in the evaluation of various medical conditions that affect the function of the heart and lungs. Pulse oximeters are the most common oximeter used because they respond only to pulsations. Oximetry can also be done on blood within the heart, or on whole blood that has been removed from the body. Similar technology to oximetry is currently used to measure carbon dioxide levels at the skin.
However, most are typically made from a type of denture acrylic (polymethylmethacrylate) or ‘PMMA’, and as such are stronger and less likely to absorb saliva than EVA materials. Some new variants are made from a type of ‘Nylon’ (polyamide) and are very strong in thin section (see Comfort and bulk above). This means they will last longer and therefore the ‘cost per wear’ may be reduced.
It is wise to look at the "success" reports for various treatments with a critical eye. If the number of nights that a bed partner has to leave the room decreases from seven nights per week to one night per week, is that success? Some would say that it is. However, the bed partner (or snorer) still has to leave the room one night per week. It is important to know what the expectations for a "cure" are before considering any treatments.

Snoring is a general term for the sound that some people make while breathing during sleep.  There are many different types of snoring sound, but ultimately snoring comes vibration of structures inside the throat, most commonly the soft palate (back of the roof of the mouth).  At the most basic level, snoring occurs in some people because the muscles in the body relax during sleep, allowing these structures to vibrate as air flows by them.  When people are awake, these muscles are active, and the structures are much less likely to vibrate during breathing.
If, on the other hand, “mouth snoring” is the problem, completely different remedies are used to prevent snoring. Traditional snoring mouthpieces cannot prevent this type of snoring. Mouth snoring occurs when the person affected breathes through the mouth at night so that the breathing air forces the tissue at the palatal arch (e. g. uvula) or in the adjacent tissue regions to vibrate. This triggers the snoring noise. The recommended solution for this snoring form is the use of a snoring mouthpiece.

When I was little, I remember waking up at night wondering why there was always an 18-wheeler truck parked right outside my window all night revving its engine. It was in fact my father snoring his way through the night—all night every night. While I didn’t inherit my father’s ability to do a dead-on impression of Darth Vader with a sinus infection all night long, I am also a snorer.
