Snoring is a common disorder usually not very serious, if you snore occasionally, but if you are a habitual snorer then it becomes nuisance for your bed partner. In such case it’s better to get checked out by a doctor, instead avoiding the condition. The doctors generally ask about your symptoms and take a complete medical history, paying special attention to your nose and throat. Snoring happen, due to the flow of air from the mouth or nose to your lungs which causes airway’s tissues vibrate. Some of its common causes are mouth anatomy, alcohol consumption, sleep apnea and nasal problems. It can be treated by losing weight, improving eat habits, avoid alcohol, take help of continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) machine offered by suppliers like www.ilexmedical.com and others. But before using anything, it’s better to consult with doctors rather than believing anyone’s opinion.

Snoring can not only be disruptive to those trying to sleep with you or near you, it can also be disruptive to the quality of your own sleep. There are many different causes of snoring and each reason may have a separate solution. First of all, recognize that snoring is very common. Half of all people suffer from snoring at some point in their lives.

Snoring is caused by the air from your breathing vibrating the tissues of your mouth, throat, and tongue. Because they are more relaxed when you are sleeping, the tissues are more flexible and easily disrupted by your breathing. Reasons for snoring are:

• Anatomy – sometimes it’s just how your mouth is formed.
• Congestion – nasal congestion can disrupt the normal flow of your airways.
• Sleep apnea – this is a common condition that causes the throat tissues to swell slightly during sleep.
• Alcohol – Drinking too much alcohol causes the tissues of the mouth and throat to relax more than usual.

Many home treatments are successful in stopping snoring. One of the most basic (not necessarily the easiest) is to lose weight. Excessive fat can build up in the tissues of the mouth and throat. Other home remedies include:

• Change sleeping position – If you normally sleep on your back, try sleeping on your side.
• If you are congested, try a decongestant or nasal spray.
• Avoid alcoholic drinks before bedtime.
• Try over-the-counter nasal strips to open your airways.

If these home snoring remedies do not work, you may need to visit a doctor. A doctor can prescribe a specially made appliance to help keep your airways open. There are several types of surgery available to reduce snoring. Traditional scalpel surgery exists but it is becoming less common. Laser surgery may be used if the reason for your snoring is obstruction and the newest treatment uses radio waves to reduce the size of the palate.
