Snoring can be funny, but it can also make it more difficult to sleep. Some people snore so loudly that they wake themselves up or make it impossible for their partner to get a good night’s sleep. 75% of people who snore also suffer from obstructive sleep apnea, which means that they sometimes momentarily stop breathing in their sleep. This condition is quite serious since it increases the risk of developing heart disease and can lead to death.



How can you stop snoring? Snoring occurs when air passes through the soft parts of the throat, causing them to vibrate when breathing. This causes the annoying sounds. It can also be caused by excess mucus, and inflammation of the mucous tissue, which narrows the nasal cavity and produces a whistle sound. Even though some people use decongestants and other pharmacy products, specialists recommend not to do so. The best way to clear your sinuses and airways (and to stop snoring) is to feed your mucus tissue with this delicious drink.

Lemons can be difficult to eat because of their acidity, but it is this acidity that breaks down mucus and makes it easier for the sinuses to drain. Ginger has antibiotic, analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties. These are often used to remove mucus in the nasal cavity and throat for colds and flu.

Roots are rich in vitamin A, which keeps the skin and mucous membranes that line the nose, sinuses and mouth healthy. When combined with vitamins C and E, vitamin A can help to prevent lung cancer and respiratory infections.

People with food allergies and hypersensitivity should avoid their triggers as they can produce excess mucus in the digestive tract and the respiratory tract. Eating spoiled food can also contribute to snoring.

Also avoid smoking, eating dairy products, taking muscle relaxants and drinking alcohol, as this can contribute to worsening the condition. If your condition is very serious, try to take a warm shower before bedtime or use a neti pot to clear the nasal cavity. It is also important to stay hydrated so that the mucus does not become sticky, making it more difficult to drain.
