How to Stop Snoring

1 CommentTuesday, 4 December 2018

Medical science seems to have been able to snuff out all sorts of illnesses and ailments, but somehow one of the simplest seems to be one of the hardest to get rid of: snoring. Most of us have experienced snoring in one way or another – you've either been the one bothering your loved ones at night, or the one struggling to get to sleep despite the cacophonous noise. While there's plenty of 'expert' advice available online, we at Health and Care have taken it upon ourselves to cut through all the noise, and provide you with the best of what's really worked for our customers.

How to stop snoring anti-snoring pillows and solutions

What Causes Snoring?

Before we get to our solutions, it's important to know why we snore in the first place. Simply put, it's the vibration of excess tissue in your throat, which can be exacerbated by anything that restricts your airway. Though it's well-trodden territory, here are some of the most common causes:

  • Excess body weight - This can cause excess fatty tissue in your throat, restricting your airway
  • Alcohol consumption - This can cause loosening of your throat and jaw, making them more prone to vibration
  • Smoking - Can irritate the throat, causing inflammation and restricting your airway
  • Sleeping on your back - Causes fatty tissue to 'lean' into your throat, restricting your airway
  • Blocked nose/allergies - Forces more air through your throat, making it more prone to vibration

Now that we've covered the causes, it's time to introduce some solutions. Here's what works for our customers:

Best Anti-Snoring Pillow

Therapeutica Spinal Alignment Sleeping Pillow

Therapeutica Spinal Alignment Sleeping PillowAt Health and Care, we believe the simplest solution should always be the first you try, and in this case, it's a new pillow. The Therapeutica Spinal Alignment Sleeping Pillow is designed to provide an ideal head and neck position for a range of sleeping styles, making it perfect if you want to transition to sleeping on your side. Side sleeping will often stop your snoring problem completely, and will actually lead to more comfort and better spinal health in the long run. This pillow is a powerful anti-snoring tool, and may just be the only one you'll ever need.


Best Stop Snoring Nasal Spray

Rhynil Stop Snoring Spray

Rynil Stop Snoring SprayBesides sleeping on your side, the easiest way to stop snoring is to clear your nasal passages to allow proper airflow. Rhynil Stop Snoring Nasal Spray is extremely effective and easy to use, helping to reduce nasal inflammation to allow airflow through the nasal passages. This will help to increase the amount of air that flows through your nasal passage, thereby reducing mouth-breathing while asleep and reducing the chances of snoring. Approved by the British Snoring and Sleep Apnoea Association and also available in a Double Strength Version, this product is one of the most effective anti-snoring aids on the market.


Clear Sinuses to Stop Snoring

Acu-Life Neti Rinse Nasal Irrigation Kit

Acu-Life Neti Rinse Nasal Irrigation KitIn the same line of thinking as the nasal spray above, this next option uses the nasal irrigation made popular by Neti pots and similar products. The Acu-Life Neti Rinse Nasal Irrigation Kit helps you flush out your sinuses with salt water prior to going to sleep, providing a safe, effective and easy snoring solution. Ideal for those who often go to sleep or wake up with a heavily blocked nose, the Neti Rinse system improves on the nasal rinsing method of Neti pots with greater control and less mess.


Best Stop Snoring Throat Spray

Snoreeze Snoring Prevention Throat Spray 23.5ml

Snoreeze Snoring Prevention Throat Spray 23.5mlWhile the nasal spray above works by clearing up the nose, anti-snoring throat sprays tackle the problem at the source by toning and lubricating the tissues of the throat. Snoreeze Snoring Prevention Throat Spray 23.5ml has been found to provide up to eight hours of relief from snoring, as it prevents loose throat tissue from going through the harsh vibrations that cause loud snoring. An ideal alternative to nasal sprays, this is a comfortable and effective option.


Best Anti-Snoring Oral Device

Snoreeze Stop Snoring Oral Device

Snoreeze anti-snoring oral deviceIf all else fails, a device that alters the position of your mouth and throat during sleep may do the trick. The Snoreeze Stop Snoring Oral Device is touted as Snoreeze's most effective anti-snoring solution, this snore guard is made with side-to-side flexibility to allow speaking and drinking, which can be a problem with most oral devices. With a boil-and-bite design to ensure proper moulding, this device helps to hold your jaw in place as you sleep, opening airways to allow a smooth and unrestricted flow of air.


Best High-Tech Approach to Snoring Prevention

Beurer SL70 Gentle Snore Stopper

Beurer Sl70 gentle snore stopperFor the more adventurous among us, novel solutions are available when all else fails. The Beurer SL70 Gentle Snore Stopper sits comfortably in your ear at night, where it detects your snoring with a bone conduction signal. Once detected, the device emits a soft sound and vibration alarm in your ear, training your body to stop the snoring process immediately. The intensity of the alarm can be chosen by the user, and information on your snoring and sleep behaviour can then be viewed with the connected smartphone app. If you're looking for a modern snoring solution, look no further.


The Best Snoring Solutions Around

In this article, we've tried to compile only our most effective snoring solutions, hopefully cutting through much of the less-than-useful information found elsewhere. Countless products have come along claiming to solve the snoring problem for good, but the truth is that different things will always work for different people.

The best strategy is to figure out what the main causes of your snoring are, and choose a product that will target your problem at the source. If you aren't convinced by our choices, you can take a look at our entire range of anti-snoring products in our Snoring product section.

I recommend mouth guard. The one my husband is using is from Stella White and it works very well.
