How to Stop Snoring for Better Health

1- Sleeping Position

snoringTry sleeping on your side. If you often wake to find yourself on your back, this could be the root cause of your snoring. Gravity pulls on the tongue and uvula (that dangling thing in the back of your throat), which causes your airway to become partially obstructed. Start out sleeping on your side, and use a pillow or some other object against your back to stop your body from rolling over.

If sleeping on your side isn’t an option, sleeping in a reclined position is another good option. Using pillows or an adjustable bed to sleep with your head over your chest means that your tongue will be down into a natural position in your mouth, rather than back into your throat.
