If you are having a hard time of it because of your or your partner's snoring, then you've landed at the right place. And you are not alone because some 23% of couples suffer either directly or indirectly through serious snoring issues. Here you're going to discover the benefits of using anti snoring exercises to cure snoring.
We all know the problems do not we? Lack of proper sleep, daily fatigue, partners who sleep in a separate room, couples breaking up, and so on. And apart from those, continuous fatigue during the day can lead to serious accidents on the roads and in the workplace. Plus, the health of you and your partner can suffer because lack of proper sleep can lower your natural defenses.
Things can get so bad that many snoring victims turn to expensive invasive surgery. The problem is that this should really only be a last resort. And it is not guaranteed by any stretch. But you do not need to go to these lengths if you really understand what causes snoring problems. A proper knowledge of the causes can go a long way to selecting the right snoring remedies for your individual circumstances.
Snoring is caused by some kind of blockage in the airways. When this happens the air that your breathing stops flowing smoothly as it would normally, but instead flows in a more turbulent way. This causes the soft tissue in the airways to flap around. It's this that causes the horrendous sounds of snoring that keeps you and your partner awake.
Here are a few examples of the type of situations that cause blockages and give rise to snoring …
1. Allergies: Allergies in your nasal airways can cause swelling and inflammation and so narrowing of the airways.
2. Fatty tissue: Folks who are even a bit overweight have fleshier than normal necks. This builds up fatty tissue in the airway.
3. Tense jaw muscles: When your jaw muscles are tense they tend to constrict the airway.
4. Soft palate: The soft palate (at the back of the roof of your mouth) can become weak and so fall down near the surface of the back of your tongue.
5. Weak tongue muscles: Weak muscles can allow your tongue to fall back, thus restricting the airway. This is especially noticeable when sleeping on your back.
The majority of cases is where the muscles became relaxed or weak, so allowing the soft tissue to move into your airways. So one way to help stop snoring is through anti snoring exercises. Just as you can exercise other parts of your body to improve things, you can exercise the muscles in and around your mouth and throat.
By following a series of simple stop snoring exercises, you can strengthen your tongue to prevent it falling back, firm up your soft palate to stop it falling down on top of the back of your tongue, and, loosen up your jaw to help maximize airway space. There is an exercise available for most every cause of snoring.
And they do not need to be long, laborious exercises; they can be short-duration exercises of, typically, 3 minutes each. The key thing to remember is that their effectiveness depends on how bad the cause of your snoring is, and how long you persevere with the exercises. A total of just 10 minutes every day should be effective in stopping snoring at night. Be prepared to stick at it for 2 months for the worst cases, although stopping snoring well before that is certainly achievable.
