Natural remedies to stop snoring quickly
Have you ever been kept up by your partner’s loud snoring? Better yet, have you ever been woken up by your own loud snoring? Despite what you may think, snoring is completely natural and almost everyone does it. We snore because our throats become very relaxed when we are in deep sleep and it starts to move. However, severe snoring can cause insomnia, disrupt our sleeping patterns and irritate the people around us.
Here at Health is Wealth, we’ve collected some information about some natural remedies that stop snoring and prevent more serious problems such as insomnia, weight gain, and anxiety from arising.
Snoring happens because we lack air through our throat and nose while we sleep. This causes the surrounding tissue to vibrate which results in that loud snoring sound. In some cases, people who snore have more nasal tissue (uvula) that is prone to vibrate than others.
Sometimes snoring occurs when a person is congested due to nasal or chest congestion. Peppermint oil can help to unclog the sinuses and relieve a sore throat. It usually acts as an expectorant in order to help your airways open, clear mucus, and reduce congestion. A few studies have shown that compounds found in peppermint oil have a lot of antimicrobial, antiviral and antioxidant properties which means that it can also fight infections in the respiratory tract.
Goldenseal is another treatment that can help with snoring. It can relieve congestion in your chest and the nasal passages. Goldenseal is mostly found in herbal remedies for allergies and colds due to its antibiotic and immune-boosting capabilities. Furthermore, some research suggests that medicinal plants like goldenseal can improve immune function by increasing antigen-specific antibody production making it an ideal natural remedy for bronchitis.
Vitamin C is the go-to natural remedy when it comes to boosting your immune system and promoting respiratory health. One of the main causes of snoring is the blockage of the airway caused by our sinuses. This causes the mouth to open and the uvula (fleshy extension at the back of the palate that hangs above the throat) to vibrate.
By consuming enough vitamin C, you will help to clear the sinuses. A few of the best foods rich in vitamin C to consume are broccoli, oranges, lemons, red bell peppers, papaya and most importantly, pineapples. Pineapples also contain the sinus-fighting agent called bromelain (an enzyme that is known for its anti-inflammatory and anti-swelling abilities).
Have a glass of freshly squeezed orange juice or a few slices of pineapple an hour before you go to bed.
Digestion plays a vital role in our sleeping patterns and could be one of the reasons why your sleep is disrupted by your snoring. Spearmint and fenugreek are miraculous herbs that can cure snoring caused by indigestion or acid disease in the digestive tract. Furthermore, they both reduce inflammation inside the body such as bronchitis, tissue infection and chronic coughs.
Both of these can help your body get rid of excess acid and can also decrease your chances of snoring. Fenugreek can fight sleep apnea and improve digestive health while spearmint relieves indigestion and acid reflux symptoms.
Each of these herbs can be found in various forms, like liquid, powder, and pill.
Eucalyptus in herbal medicine has been known to help with chest colds and is also valued for its ability to reduce inflammation and improve respiratory conditions. Approximately 70% — 90% of eucalyptus oil is rich in antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and pain-relieving properties.
