4. Stop Smoking

Numerous research studies show that smoking is a major contributor to snoring. This is most likely due to an irritation of the airway and persistent inflammation that, over time, leads to permanent damage to the respiratory system. This includes E-cigarettes and marijuana. Quit smoking today to help eliminate snoring.

 

5. Lifestyle Changes

Snoring can sometimes be reduced through some easy lifestyle changes. If you are overweight, it can lead to the constriction of the throat. Losing just 10 percent of your body weight can reduce the fat on the back of the neck and lessen the pressure on your airway.

Staying hydrated can keep mucus thin and flowing freely, which helps avoid nasal congestion.

Stop smoking!

Avoid alcohol and sedatives. These both relax the muscles around your neck and throat and interfere with breathing.

6. See an Allergist

For those who suffer from allergies, snoring is often nothing more than congestion due to allergies that are in the home. Reduce known allergens in the bedroom such as mold, dust, and pet dander. Change your pillowcase frequently and be sure to vacuum drapes, carpets, and floors every few days. You can also try gargling with a few drops of peppermint essential oil mixed in water. This can help open up your nasal passages and reduce snoring.

If you can’t determine the source of your allergies, you might want to think about seeing an allergist. Find out food remedies for allergy.
