Snoring: When Should You Worry About It?

Snorers are often the butt of jokes. We make fun of them but in reality, they’re not funny at all. As a matter of fact, they probably need more of our help than our usual sarcasm about their snoring. For all we know, the snoring could be a sign of something more serious.

No matter how you define it, snoring is a common habit for both men and women. It’s typically most common for men, but for any person, your chances of snoring start to increase as you get older. Although this problem is usually just mildly annoying (or funny), there are times when snoring can be related to a serious condition called sleep apnea.

While snorers may look and sound funny while sleeping, they’re actually struggling to catch some air.

WebMD says that people snore when there’s a physical obstruction interrupting the flow of air through the mouth and nose.

(Via: https://www.ajc.com/lifestyles/here-when-you-should-worry-about-your-snoring/QOtVsZCyycYpD8qa07MPSP/)

The causes of physical obstruction are the following:

1. Blocked nasal passages – Mucous or physical growths or changes in your nasal cavity can change the flow of air through your system.
2. Bulky throat tissue – If you’re slightly overweight or if you have large tonsils, you’re more likely to snore.
3. Poor muscle tone – If the muscles in your throat or tongue are too relaxed, they can collapse and get in the way as air is passing through. As you get older, these muscles start to relax more.
4. Long soft plate and/or uvula – This tissue can narrow the opening from your nose to your throat. It dangles in the back of your mouth and, when they bump against each other, it can block your airway, which causes snoring.

While it’s natural for everyone to snore, we really shouldn’t make fun of a snore that is unusually loud. An unusually loud snore is something we should really worry about.

If your snoring is louder than normal, you wake up feeling tired and your breathing stops and starts throughout the night, it’s possible you might have a form of sleep apnea.

There are three kinds of sleep apnea. Aurora Health Care defines obstructive sleep apnea as “a condition where people experience brief pauses of breathing during sleep, causing a drop in oxygen levels.” There is also central sleep apnea, which happens when your brain doesn’t send the right signals to the muscles that control your breathing, and complex sleep apnea syndrome, which is a combination of the two.

(Via: https://www.ajc.com/lifestyles/here-when-you-should-worry-about-your-snoring/QOtVsZCyycYpD8qa07MPSP/)

Considering the three kinds of sleep apnea, there’s no doubt that it’s a dangerous kind of disorder. The fact that the snorer is having a hard time breathing is something really serious. The effects of stoppage of breathing while sleeping are harmful to the body.

On the bright side, snoring can be treated. The sooner it’s treated, the better. There are various ways to treat snoring.

One option is a nasal strip or some other device that attaches to the outside of your nose to help you breathe easier. There are also mouth guards that go inside your mouth and push your tongue and jaw forward to make more room for air to flow.

(Via: https://www.ajc.com/lifestyles/here-when-you-should-worry-about-your-snoring/QOtVsZCyycYpD8qa07MPSP/)

There are a lot of mouth guards in the market these days but there are actually just a few of them that are actually safe to use. When choosing a mouth guard, we have to make sure that it has been cleared by the Food and Drug Administration or FDA.

The Good Morning Snore Solution is not just cleared by the FDA, it’s also accredited by the BBB or the Better Business Bureau. While its design hardly looks like a mouth guard, it guarantees more comfort. More information about it is found on https://snoringmouthpiecereview.org/good-morning-snore-solution.

Can This Smart Strap Actually Stop Snoring?

Snoring is such a big deal nowadays. Well, it should be. Considering the high percentage of habitual snorers these days, it’s high time we take snoring seriously.

According to research, 40-percent of adult men and 24-percent of adult women snore habitually. It’s cited as a key issue in preventing people from getting a solid night’s rest, either because they themselves are snoring, or the person next to them are.

(Via: https://www.slashgear.com/philips-sleepsmart-snoring-relief-band-health-implications-sleep-apnoea-26574840/)

Snoring not just affects the snorer. It also affects other people who are bothered by the loud noise. It’s hard to sleep with someone who snores. No one gets quality sleep with a snorer around. That pretty much contributes to the reason why snoring is such a big deal these days.

It all sounds faintly ridiculous, but snoring is a big deal – both in terms of annual relief spending, and for potential long term health implications. Snoring can be a strong risk factor for hypertension, for instance, while if left untreated it can eventually lead to Obstructive Sleep Apnoea, or OSA. That’s where the walls of the throat narrow during sleep, making it harder to breathe.

(Via: https://www.slashgear.com/philips-sleepsmart-snoring-relief-band-health-implications-sleep-apnoea-26574840/)

OSA is a serious disease. It can lead to other health issues that could be deadly at some point.

Over time, OSA can lead to an increased risk of stroke or heart attack, to atrial fibrillation, and even make it more likely that you’ll develop type 2 diabetes.

(Via: https://www.slashgear.com/philips-sleepsmart-snoring-relief-band-health-implications-sleep-apnoea-26574840/)

That explains why there is an urgent need to stop snoring.

Stopping snoring isn’t going to instantly prevent all that from happening, but it’s a good first step, and doctors typically look at snoring as an early symptom that there’s something going wrong when you’re in bed.

(Via: https://www.slashgear.com/philips-sleepsmart-snoring-relief-band-health-implications-sleep-apnoea-26574840/)

The question is, can a smart strap like the Phillips’ Smart Snoring Relief Band actually stop snoring? Before we answer that, let’s take a close look at it first.

The latest addition to the company’s sleep-focused range, the Philips SleepSmart Snoring Relief Band replaces giving your bedmate a swift kick when they’re making too much noise.

Unlike straps that claim to keep your nasal passages more open, or bizarre headgear, the snoring relief band takes a more straightforward approach. People typically snore when they’re lying on their front or back, but not when they’re on their side.

So, Philips’ band basically tracks when you’re lying on your back, and encourages you to shift to your side. To do that, it promises to gently vibrate. Not enough to actually wake you up, but just enough of a disturbance to get you to change position. It’s a similar strategy to the micro-changes Philips’ Somneo Connected Sleep & Wake-up Light tried to make in the bedroom, but which can cumulatively add up to a big difference in your sleep – and your health.

(Via: https://www.slashgear.com/philips-sleepsmart-snoring-relief-band-health-implications-sleep-apnoea-26574840/)

Sounds promising but the thing is, this smart band has to be worn around the chest and is dependent on a battery.

Philips’ SmartSleep Snoring Relief Band is worn around the chest, like a heart rate monitor. There’s a minimalistic display to show status and things like battery life, and a USB-C port for charging. The sensor unit itself slots into the band, which is resizable to suit different wearers.

(Via: https://www.slashgear.com/philips-sleepsmart-snoring-relief-band-health-implications-sleep-apnoea-26574840/)

Another thing about this smart band is that we don’t really know how much it’s going to cost.

How much it will cost, and how exactly you’ll control it, remains to be seen. Philips has been pushing its digital health portfolio over the past few years, including building links between the apps on individuals’ phones and the infrastructure their healthcare providers rely on. Recent smart toothbrushes from the company, for example, support two-way communication between the brusher and their dentist. We’ll find out more at IFA 2019 this September.

(Via: https://www.slashgear.com/philips-sleepsmart-snoring-relief-band-health-implications-sleep-apnoea-26574840/)

Until then, we just have to wait. In the meantime, we could resort to using snoring mouthpieces that are readily available in market. The https://snoringmouthpiecereview.org/sleeptight is very simple to use and it works to stop snoring right away.

When Snoring Becomes Deadly

We know that snoring kills. If it isn’t addressed and treated, it can lead to a lot of health complications that can eventually kill the snorer.

However, we don’t really hear a lot of stories on snorers being murdered for the obvious and annoying reason that they snore. Hopefully, there aren’t a lot of stories on it but unfortunately, there’s one that came out on May 1.

A woman at a UK hospital died two weeks after a hotheaded patient whacked her in the head because she was annoyed by her snoring, a report said.

(Via: https://nypost.com/2019/05/01/woman-dies-in-hospital-after-patient-attacks-her-for-snoring/)

Now, that is one sad news. Needless to say, it’s a senseless murder. How could anyone kill anyone and for what? For snoring? It’s totally absurd but it’s true. It happened.

Mom of five Eileen Bunting, 64, was attacked and hit in the head with a cup while she was in a hospital bed at the Hull Royal Infirmary in Hull, England, on March 22, The Sun reported.

Bunting, who was left with a bloody gash on her forehead, was slated to be released from the hospital the day after the attack, but after she was assaulted, her health quickly declined.

She died April 4, according to the news outlet.

(Via: https://nypost.com/2019/05/01/woman-dies-in-hospital-after-patient-attacks-her-for-snoring/)

Apparently, Bunting’s snoring had become a serious issue for one patient who just couldn’t take it anymore. The sad part is that the attack seemed like it was well-laid out.

The victim’s son told local media that he believed the assault was a “premeditated” attack after it was discovered that the unidentified patient who went after his mother had tied the hospital room’s door handles together to prevent anyone from coming inside.

“The nurses must have been doing the rounds, noticed the doors were shut and found my mom full of blood and her stood over her with a cup,” Bunting’s son, Mark Bunting, told Hull Live, according to the report.
“The doors had been pulled to and tied together with a blanket and then she proceeded to attack my mom. It was premeditated,” the devastated son said.

(Via: https://nypost.com/2019/05/01/woman-dies-in-hospital-after-patient-attacks-her-for-snoring/)

It seems pretty surreal to think that anyone could kill for the simple reason of snoring. Based on the news report, it can really happen. A patient actually got fed up with the snoring and decided to do something about it. Sad to say, that something was a deadly way to deal with the snoring. Now that is downright scary.

Bunting’s husband, Philip, was adamant that the woman who attacked his wife did it over her snoring.

“Apparently the night before, another patient said the patient that attacked her was getting agitated at Eileen’s snoring,” Philip reportedly said.

(Via: https://nypost.com/2019/05/01/woman-dies-in-hospital-after-patient-attacks-her-for-snoring/)

There’s no reason to go berserk over snoring. If the snoring is annoying, there are ways to go about solving it. Killing the snorer is definitely not the way to do it. While it’s hard to sympathize with a snorer, especially if his or her snoring is really keeping everybody up at night, there really is no reason to harm or to even kill the snorer.

A more humane way to help a snorer is to find an effective solution to stop the snoring. For starters, there are snoring mouthpieces that can help a snorer. One good example of a snoring mouthpiece is the Good Morning Snore Solution. This particular snoring mouthpiece is very soft and comfortable to wear. The good thing about it is that it can easily be bought without a prescription. In terms of price points, this one is pretty affordable.

Snoring doesn’t have to be deadly. No one has to kill for the sake of it. If the snoring becomes unbearable, the Good Morning Snore Solution Mouthpiece can definitely help.

Correcting Sleep Apnea In Women With Snoring Mouthpieces

Long Beach, California based The Snoring Mouthpiece Review recently published two new blog entries where they discuss the effects of sleep apnea on women and how to prevent the damage caused by this condition.

In one of the articles, “Study Finds That Women Underestimate Their Snoring”, the company illustrates the importance of treating snoring as the serious health condition that it is, regardless of the person’s gender. Steve Walker, a company representative, asserts, “While men accept and embrace their snoring, seeking ways to fix it, women seem to feel shamed by this fact when they are the bearers of this condition. Recent studies have found that most of the women who snore ignore their condition—and deny it too—putting them in a dire situation where they’re at the mercy of the consequences of sleep apnea.”

The study looked at 1,913 patients, of an average age of 49 years, who were referred to a sleep disorder center at a university hospital. Of all the patients registered, it was found that 88% of the attendants snore on a daily basis, but only 72% of them accepted it publicly and admitted they do so. This behaviour supports a dangerous situation where women are denied the treatment that is necessary to treat their snoring, especially since it was also found to be just as serious as it is for men.

Snoring is often a sign of obstructive sleep apnea, a condition that can significantly affect different aspects of a person’s life. Walker explains, “Just because women feel like their snoring isn’t as bad as their partners’, neglecting the proper treatment is not justified. Snoring is a serious condition that has to be treated, and the first step to treating it is to openly accept it. If your wife is a habitual, and loud, snorer, her health could be at risk, and she should get treatment for it as soon as possible.”

In another recent article, “Healing And Preventing The Damage Caused By The Injuries of Snoring” the company discusses some of the most common consequences of loud snoring, and the health conditions it can lead to. Walker says, “Snoring is really dangerous. Heavy snoring can cause a quick stoppage of breathing that can easily endanger a person’s life. Habitual snoring can lead to some serious health and relationship problems. Overall, snoring has only downsides and no benefits, and there is really no reason to neglect the treatment that can cure it.”

The recurrent vibrations caused by snoring can also lead to injuries in the upper airways of people who snore heavily, causing swallowing dysfunctions that render individuals more vulnerable to developing obstructive sleep apnea. Moreover, this only further proves the point that snoring is a serious condition which should be corrected before any negative symptoms affect an individual’s overall health.

The Snoring Mouthpiece Review states that there many different ways to treat this condition—some of which can provide immediate results—by natural means. The experts recommend that snorer’s consider using snoring mouthpieces, which can immediately resolve their condition, reducing the snoring and allowing the patient’s health to recover naturally.

There are many options when it comes to snoring mouthpieces, all of which allow afflicted parties to completely restrain their snoring while they sleep. These devices are designed to hold the tongue and jaw in place, allowing the body to recover from the damage it has sustained from the condition.

Through their website, The Snoring Mouthpiece Review offers a complete catalogue listing each of the different types of mouthpieces an individual can use, according to their needs, along with the company’s recommendations and reviews. These products are easy to purchase and do not require a doctor’s prescription, making them one of the best solutions that snorers’ can find.

For more information on how snoring can cause permanent harm, interested parties may visit the blog hosted on The Snoring Mouthpieces Review’s website. They may also contact Steve Walker for further information regarding the company and their products.

Snoring: A Problem For Both Men And Women

Ladies, listen up. If you find yourselves complaining about how bad your boyfriend or hubby snores, stop for a moment. Make sure that you don’t snore because if you do, well, your boyfriend or hubby could be complaining about it as well. Be careful with what you say because you could be a snorer as well.

It turns out that men are not the only ones that snore according to a new study.

“We found that although no difference in snoring intensity was found between genders, women tend to underreport the fact that they snore and to underestimate the loudness of their snoring,” said Dr. Nimrod Maimon.

The study found that 88 percent of women snore, but only 72 percent admit to doing so. 93 percent of men both snored and reported snoring.

(Via: http://www.wlsam.com/2019/04/30/snoring-not-just-an-issue-for-men/)

So, ladies, face it. You probably snore as well. Maybe not as loud as your partner but you probably snore as well. Admitting it can be hard but it’s a good start if you really want to solve your snoring problem.

No one wants to admit that he or she is a snorer. After all, snoring is not something anyone would be proud of doing. It’s embarrassing to snore. For a lady to snore, it’s a total turn off.

The thing is, everybody snores. It’s a fact. No one can deny that. So instead of putting the blame on your boyfriend or husband, take the first step to see if you snore as well. Then deal with it.

Ladies, just because your snoring isn’t as loud as your partner’s doesn’t mean you shouldn’t get any help. The fact is, there are real dangers to consider with snoring.

“The fact that women reported snoring less often and described it as milder may be one of the barriers preventing women from reaching sleep clinics for a sleep study,” Dr. Maimon said.
Snoring can be due to sleep apnea, a sleeping disorder that can lead to an array of health issues.

(Via: http://www.wlsam.com/2019/04/30/snoring-not-just-an-issue-for-men/)

Snoring can lead to a lot of health problems. Before getting to that point, it’s best to treat it as soon as possible.

Going to a sleep clinic is a good way to treat snoring but it can take some time. Most likely, you don’t have a lot of time to spare. There is another alternative for you. It’s actually a more practical way to deal with your snoring.

Wearing a snoring mouthpiece while sleeping can really help a lot. If you’re not familiar with snoring mouthpieces, then it’s time to familiarize yourself with them. For starters, snoring mouthpieces are very affordable. You don’t need to spend a lot to find one that really works. Second of all, the leading mouthpieces are very comfortable to wear. It’s just really a matter of finding the right one that suits you.

So, instead of complaining about somebody else’s snoring, deal with your snoring first. The best way to deal with both your snoring and your partner’s snoring is to choose the right snoring mouthpiece.

There are a lot of snoring mouthpieces available in the market today. Don’t confuse yourself with the long list of snoring mouthpieces in the market. You’ll just end up wasting some time.

The Snoring Mouthpiece Review is a good resource for you. It can help you decipher as to which snoring mouthpiece could work for you. There’s no need for you to go over a long list of snoring mouthpieces in the market. The said site has already listed down the top four snoring mouthpieces and they are the Good Morning Snore Solution, SnoreRx, SleepTight, and ZQuiet.

The https://snoringmouthpiecereview.org/good-morning-snore-solution is a good choice for snorers who think they can never overcome their snoring problem. If your snoring isn’t habitual, then this particular mouthpiece may not be for you. However, it might be the perfect snoring mouthpiece for your husband or boyfriend, who probably snores more then you do. Think about it.

Could These Mouth Workouts Stop Snoring?

Have you ever heard of mouth workouts? Apparently, they exist and they’re supposed to help stop snoring. The question is, do they actually work?

Before we get into that, here’s a little trivia for you. Did you know that men snore more than women? Yes, they do.

Around 40 per cent of men over 30 snore and around 30 per cent of women do.

(Via: https://www.thesun.co.uk/fabulous/8842466/simple-workout-stop-snoring/)

Of course, that doesn’t delete the fact that women snore as well. There just less women who snore.

It’s really not a matter of who snores more or who snores less. The point is, there is always someone who snores and that could be you. Snoring is not something that we should take lightly.

If left untreated, it can turn into sleep apnea – a potentially life-threatening sleeping disorder which sees people have heart attacks in the middle of the night.

(Via: https://www.thesun.co.uk/fabulous/8842466/simple-workout-stop-snoring/)

So, if you snore or you know of someone who snores, it’s time to incorporate some mouth workouts before going to sleep.

Because one expert maintains that not only is snoring a voluntary habit but also that it can be treated with a five-minute workout.

Mike Dilkes is an ear, nose and throat surgeon at London’s Hospital of St John and St Elizabeth, and he’s been telling the Telegraph that while snoring is “not a habit you may choose to have…(it’s) one you can choose to stop”.

(Via: https://www.thesun.co.uk/fabulous/8842466/simple-workout-stop-snoring/)

If this is the first time you’ve heard of mouth workouts to stop snoring, then why not give it shot? After all, snoring is not something we should all take lightly.

So it’s not just that snoring is annoying for everyone else to hear and can sometimes disrupt our own sleep, it can be really dangerous.

(Via: https://www.thesun.co.uk/fabulous/8842466/simple-workout-stop-snoring/)

Snoring happens because the muscles of the throat relax and collapse while the body is asleep. With the workout exercises, the muscles can get fit again.

Mike says that snoring is often caused by a loss of muscle tone; at night, everything relaxes and collapses. But that collapse can be reduced by exercising the throat.

(Via: https://www.thesun.co.uk/fabulous/8842466/simple-workout-stop-snoring/)

Hence, Mike has come up with some interesting mouth workouts that are supposed to strengthen the muscles in your mouth to prevent snoring,

Mike has come up with a revolutionary tongue and throat workout designed to tone up the bits in your neck that cause snoring.

Sure, it won’t cure those snoring cases caused by things like enlarged nostrils, but he does claim that the workout will help to reduce the volume.

And when the average snore can be the same level of loudness as a vacuum cleaner, that’s not to be snorted at.

(Via: https://www.thesun.co.uk/fabulous/8842466/simple-workout-stop-snoring/)

The workout routine is composed of three exercises that can strengthen the parts of the neck and the mouth.

It’s split into three sets of three exercises, each targetting a different part of the mouth and neck – tongue, soft palate and lower throat.

(Via: https://www.thesun.co.uk/fabulous/8842466/simple-workout-stop-snoring/)

The first exercise is called the Throat Curls.

Curl your tongue backward in the mouth towards the roof of your mouth before bringing it forward to touch the back of your upper teeth.

Repeat.

(Via: https://www.thesun.co.uk/fabulous/8842466/simple-workout-stop-snoring/)

Say Ahh is the second exercise.

Open your mouth as wide as you can and go “ahhh” for 20 seconds.

(Via: https://www.thesun.co.uk/fabulous/8842466/simple-workout-stop-snoring/)

The third exercise is called Squeal.

Poke your tongue out as far as it goes before taking a deep breath and making a high pitched noise like you’re gargling air for 30 seconds.

(Via: https://www.thesun.co.uk/fabulous/8842466/simple-workout-stop-snoring/)

These are very simple exercises that are worth trying, right? Toning the muscles in your mouth is a natural way to lessen the snoring. However, it can take some time to see results.

But that doesn’t mean that just doing these exercises for a few minutes a day is going to cure the problem overnight.

(Via: https://www.thesun.co.uk/fabulous/8842466/simple-workout-stop-snoring/)

You could also combine these mouth workouts with SnoreRx. This is a snoring device that could comfortably help keep your lower jaw in the right position while you sleep.

The Blatant Signs Of Deadly Snoring

A lot of people snore. As a matter of fact, a big percentage of the American population snores.

An estimated 40% of adults in the U.S. snore. And, men, you tend to out-snore women. (Yes, this may explain why you get kicked or shoved at night!)

(Via: https://www.npr.org/sections/health-shots/2019/04/22/714249236/beyond-annoying-how-to-identify-the-sounds-of-a-troublesome-snore)

Contrary to what other people think that snoring is a sign of deep sleep, it’s not.

And despite the myth that snoring is a sign of deep sleep, there’s really no upside to it.

“Snoring really does not demonstrate anything good, ” says Erich Voigt, an ear, nose, and throat doctor and sleep specialist at New York University Langone Health. “You can have beautifully deep sleep in a silent sleep.”

(Via: https://www.npr.org/sections/health-shots/2019/04/22/714249236/beyond-annoying-how-to-identify-the-sounds-of-a-troublesome-snore)

Snoring can be a sign of a more serious health condition but that doesn’t mean everybody who snores is in trouble. There are some cases where snoring is harmless. Nonetheless, there are some cases where snoring is an indication of something more serious.

Snoring is never great news, but often it’s harmless (other than the pain your sleeping partner may feel). In some cases, though, it’s a sign of something serious.

(Via: https://www.npr.org/sections/health-shots/2019/04/22/714249236/beyond-annoying-how-to-identify-the-sounds-of-a-troublesome-snore)

Snoring happens when the airways in the nose and in the mouth become narrow. With the airways obstructed, the tissues in the said areas end up vibrating.  That vibration contributes to the sound of a snore.

When we sleep, if the air that moves through our nose and mouth has a clear passage, we can sleep silently. But when the airways are narrowed, we snore.

“Snoring is basically a vibration of the tissues inside of the airway,” Voigt explains — that is, the roof of the mouth and the vertical folds of tissue that surround the tonsils.

(Via: https://www.npr.org/sections/health-shots/2019/04/22/714249236/beyond-annoying-how-to-identify-the-sounds-of-a-troublesome-snore)

Alcohol intake is one of the many reasons why people snore. If alcohol intake is limited, it can lessen the snoring. That just shows that snoring can be controlled and treated.

A lot of factors can contribute to snoring, says Voigt. We can control some of the underlying triggers. For instance, drinking alcohol is linked to snoring. Alcohol tends to make the tissues within our mouths swell a bit, and alcohol can also change the quality of sleep.

“Your brain is sedated from alcohol, so the combination can make you snore worse,” Voigt says.

(Via: https://www.npr.org/sections/health-shots/2019/04/22/714249236/beyond-annoying-how-to-identify-the-sounds-of-a-troublesome-snore)

Weight gain could also contribute to snoring. That means shedding off some pounds could help lessen the snoring.

Being overweight can also increase the likelihood of snoring. So, when people lose weight, this can reduce the amount they snore.

(Via: https://www.npr.org/sections/health-shots/2019/04/22/714249236/beyond-annoying-how-to-identify-the-sounds-of-a-troublesome-snore)

Lessening alcohol intake and losing some weight are just some of the simple ways to deal with snoring. In some serious cases of snoring, they’re not enough. When snoring becomes intensely annoying, it could be a sign of a more serious problem. The question is, what is that blatant sign of a deadly snore?

But when snoring becomes loud and erratic, this can signal a problem. So, if you’re concerned about the person you sleep with, what should you listen for?

“A crescendo where the snoring is getting louder and louder,” Voigt explains, is the first sign. The crescendo is typically followed by periods of no sound, and then a gasp that can sound like a snort.

This pattern of snoring can be a sign of obstructive sleep apnea, which is a serious condition that can increase the risk of heart disease. What happens to people with this condition is that the airway will collapse in on itself and close. “And as the person is trying to breathe in, the air will not pass. That’s what the apnea is,” Voigt explains.

(Via: https://www.npr.org/sections/health-shots/2019/04/22/714249236/beyond-annoying-how-to-identify-the-sounds-of-a-troublesome-snore)

Sleep apnea can be deadly. However, it can be treated. Snoring mouthpieces like the https://snoringmouthpiecereview.org/snorerx can help clear the throat of any obstruction while sleeping. SnoreRx is such a simple solution that can help stop a deadly snore.

Healing And Preventing The Damage Caused By The Injuries of Snoring

Snoring is dangerous. For example, heavy snoring can cause a quick stoppage of breathing that can easily endanger one’s life. Habitual snoring can lead to some serious health and relationship problems. There really is nothing good about the repercussions of snoring.

There is another repercussion of snoring that we hardly hear of. Apparently, snoring causes injuries that can damage the body.

The recurrent vibrations caused by snoring can lead to injuries in the upper airways of people who snore heavily. This in turn, can cause swallowing dysfunction and render individuals more vulnerable for developing the severe condition obstructive sleep apnea.

Who would have thought that the vibrations caused by snoring can actually be damaging enough to cause some swallowing dysfunction? According to research, it can be.

These findings are reported by researchers at Umeå University, Sweden. Their on-going research focuses on the processes behind vibratory damage and healing of the upper airway tract. The data generated will help identify people at high risk of developing sleep apnea and to find novel treatment strategies.

Clearly, the health risks of snoring are mounting. Hopefully, this particular research could help heal the damage brought about by snoring.

“Besides the disturbing effects, constant snoring can be a significant health risk. Nonetheless, there are indications that our research will guide towards early preventive measures and in the long term also enhance healing of damaged tissue caused by snoring,” says Associate Professor Per Stål, research leader at the Department of Integrative Medical Biology at Umeå University.

The findings of the research are not just interesting but alarming as well. According to the findings, patients who snore and suffer from sleep apnea show neuromuscular injuries in their upper respiratory tract. Both snoring and sleep apnea can also damage the nerves and muscles in the soft palate.

Researchers in Umeå have shown that snorers and sleep apnea patients have neuromuscular injuries in the upper respiratory tract. The injuries can be seen at both the structural and molecular level. Researchers could also observe a correlation between snoring and swallowing dysfunction as well as a relation between nerve damage and obstructive sleep apnea. Sleep apnea is characterized by repeated collapse of the upper respiratory tract leading to respiratory arrest during sleep, which increases the risk of cardiovascular disease.

The studies show that people who constantly snore heavily and have sleep apnea displayed a loss of nerves and muscle mass in the soft palate. Furthermore, the attempts by the body to heal damaged tissue were disturbed resulting in an abnormal muscle structure. Another interesting finding was that muscle fibres in the soft palate lacked or had a disturbed organization of certain structural proteins. These proteins stabilize the organelles of the muscle cell and support cellular structures related to energy production and muscle fibre contraction.

The most promising part of the research shows that the body tries to heal the damage caused by the injuries of snoring

The researchers also found that a neurotransmitter that is normally associated with healing and regeneration of neurons was present in the muscle cells. This finding suggests that the body is trying to heal the injuries, but the recurrent snoring vibrations prevent proper healing. It becomes a vicious circle where snoring causes damage and at the same time disturb healing of injuries, which can lead to swallowing dysfunction and sleep apnea.

It’s safe to say that it’s possible to heal and to prevent the damage caused by the injuries of snoring. As long as the snoring stops, the damage is healed and, in some cases, prevented.

The good news is that there are ways to stop snoring. One way to stop it is by wearing a snoring mouthpiece while sleeping.

The Sleeptight Snoring Mouthpiece is designed to keep your airway open so that you won’t have a hard time breathing. It also lessens and eventually stops the snoring that could damage your soft palate.

It’s really important to stop snoring. Visit https://snoringmouthpiecereview.org/sleeptight to learn more about it.

Study Finds That Women Underestimate Their Snoring

Men snore. They don’t deny that at all. They snore loud and mean that it’s hard to get any sleep beside them. The question is, are men the only snorers? Of course not! Women are snorers too. The funny thing is that they can’t seem to admit it.

In what may be the funniest news this week, a new study is finding that women tend to underreport their own snoring. The study looked at 1,913 patients, the average age of 49 years, who were referred to a sleep disorders center at a university hospital.

There really is nothing glamorous about snoring. Just imagine a weird, almost too annoying, sound coming out from a woman’s mouth. It seems unfitting for a woman to snore; almost too unfeminine.  That probably explains why it’s hard for any woman to admit that she snores.

What they found was that not only did women tend to underreport snoring, they also underestimated its loudness. The study found that 88% of the women snored, but only 72% reported that they snore.

In addition, about 49% of the women had severe or very severe snoring but only 40% of the women rated their snoring at this level. In the meantime, 92.6% of men were found to snore while a nearly identical amount (93.1%) reported snoring.

Another interesting finding is that women actually snore just as loud as men. This might be hard to accept by some women out there but unfortunately, there is some truth in it.

In terms of snoring loudness, the study found that both men and women were approximately at the same level. Women exhibited a mean maximal snoring intensity of 50 decibels and men one of 51.7 decibels.

(Via: https://interestingengineering.com/women-lie-about-their-snoring-new-study-finds)

The study required the participants to report and rate their snoring.  Their snoring was also monitored the whole night. The study seems to show a gap between what the women reported and what was actually monitored the whole night.

For the study, participants were asked to fill out a questionnaire that rated the severity of their snoring while a calibrated digital sound survey meter measured their snoring through an entire night. Snoring intensity was classified from mild (40 – 45 decibels) to very severe (60 decibels or more).

(Via: https://interestingengineering.com/women-lie-about-their-snoring-new-study-finds)

Nonetheless, the findings are relevant especially since snoring can often lead to a health condition called obstructive sleep apnea.

The results of the study are important as snoring is often a sign of obstructive sleep apnea. However, according to the authors, since there is a social stigma associated with snoring among women, women may hesitate or altogether deny reporting their snoring, leaving them undiagnosed for this disorder.

Snoring has to be treated, more so if it’s loud and habitual. It shouldn’t be ignored because it might lead to some serious health problems.

The first step to treating snoring is to simply accept it. There are natural ways to treat snoring. For immediate results, it’s best to consider snoring mouthpieces. These mouthpieces can help lessen the annoying sounds a snorer makes.

A doctor-recommended snoring mouthpiece is the Good Morning Snore Solution. This is an over-the-counter snoring mouthpiece. It holds the tongue and jaw in place, which can help lessen the chances of making weird and loud sounds while sleeping. It can also be worn with or without dentures.

The good news about the Good Morning Snore Solution is that it’s pretty easy to purchase it. There’s no need for a prescription. So, for women, who find it hard to accept that they snore, this is probably the right snoring mouthpiece for you. You can secretly deal with your snoring and eventually stop it.

6 Annoying Reasons Why Couples Are Sleeping In Separate Bedrooms

Have you heard of sleep divorce? Apparently, it’s the reason why more and more relationships are becoming stronger down under in Australia.

Thousands of Australian couples are sleeping in separate beds, with experts claiming that “sleep divorce” is making relationships and sex lives stronger.

According to research, sleeping in separate bedrooms is benefiting a lot of marriages.

Author and self-confessed “dedicated separate sleeper”, Jennifer Adams, says research showed more than 200,000 Australian couples were no sleeping in separate beds.

Adams, who wrote Sleeping Apart Not Falling Apart, said she and her husband had been happily married for 14 years despite sleeping in different bedrooms.

“Show me the stats of the divorced couples who shared a bed every night,” the 53-year-old told the Daily Mail.

“Sleeping in separate rooms does not mean the end of a relationship, it’s just a way of maintaining a relationship.

It seems kind of odd for a couple to sleep in separate bedrooms but that’s just because it’s the norm. However, the norm isn’t exactly the best thing to do especially when it comes to salvaging a relationship. Think about it.

Jennifer shares how sleep divorce can become more socially acceptable.

“Talking about it openly becomes more socially acceptable. You would be surprised at how many happy married couples out there already doing this.”

Sleep divorce might just be the best solution for couples who find it hard to get a good night’s rest beside each other. It’s a more peaceful alternative to fighting the next day because of lack of sleep.

There are six annoying reasons why couples are sleeping in separate bedrooms.

Fly-in-fly-out schedules, shift work, body heat, snoring, farting and blanket theft are all blamed for disrupting sleep, forcing more and more couples to spend bedtime apart.

It’s funny that body heat, snoring, farting, and blanket theft are some of the annoying reasons why couples are sleeping in separate rooms. They may sound pretty petty but not when it comes to sleeping. Nothing is petty when it comes to getting a good night’s rest.

Snoring is definitely not a petty thing especially if it’s getting in the way of sleep.

“If you’re being disturbed by your partner’s snoring, and you’re not getting enough sleep, then you need to do something to restore yourself,” she said.

That is the reason why sleep divorce has become a practical arrangement for couples.

Adams said the arrangement was very practical for busy Australian couples.

For some couples out there, talking about sleep divorce might just ignite a fight. After all, the reasons for considering a sleep divorce are not just annoying.  They’re also very offending to talk about. Jennifer shares how couples can peacefully talk and consider a sleep divorce.

“The key message is this should be done for health. Sleeping is such a luxury and if you’re not getting enough, ask yourself: If your partner is disturbing your sleep? If so, then you should consider sleeping in separate rooms.”

Here’s a peaceful verbiage that could bring up the topic of sleep divorce.

“Even though I can sleep through your snoring when I wear ear plugs, I can do it for a while but after about three days they irritate my ears and then I can’t sleep because of the irritation.”

While sleep divorce is a good way to maintain and in some cases, strengthen a relationship, it’s not exactly the best solution to snoring.

Leaving a snoring partner alone in a room could be quite dangerous. If snoring is getting the way of a relationship, then it’s best to treat the snoring first before considering a sleep divorce.

One of the easiest ways to treat snoring is by wearing a mandibular adjustment device, like the Sleeptight mouthpiece. This is really going to keep the snoring partner quiet, lessening the annoying reasons why couple sleep in separate bedrooms.
