Snoring occurs when the air inhaled through the mouth vibrates the soft palate (tissue at the roof of the mouth). The sound produced due to these vibrations is known as snoring. Snoring may be amplified if the cheeks, lips and nostrils also vibrate with the soft palate. There are many types of snoring cures that a person may find useful. Some of these snoring cures are linked to particular sources of snoring while other snoring cures are can be used for all causes of snoring. This article will first discuss about snoring cures which are linked to particular causes and then discuss about snoring cures which encompass all causes of snoring.
Snoring can occur when a person sleeps on his/her back and uses too many pillows. This is one of the most common causes of snoring. The reason for this is that the tongue falls to the back of the mouth, partially blocking the airflow. Another cause of snoring is smoking cigarettes and/or consuming alcohol before going to sleep. This causes throat muscles to over-relax, thereby partly blocking the airway. Snoring may also be the result of using sleeping pills and tranquilizers before sleep. The cause of this is as stated in the abovementioned situation. Medical studies have also shown that obese people are more prone to snoring. The cause of this is that fat gets deposited in and around the throat, narrowing the airway. Sometimes snoring may occur when a person is suffering from a throat infection such as a cold. There is no particular snoring cure for this situation, but curing the throat infection will also cure the snoring.
