Snoring

Description

There are different reasons for snoring but in most cases, snoring is caused by vibrations of soft tissues in the throat when breathing during sleep. Snoring is defined as a coarse sound made by vibrations of the soft palate and other tissues in the mouth, nose and upper airway.

Our Advice
  • Keeping control of your weight as overweight people are more likely to snore because their airways are squashed by fat deposits.
  • Reducing alcohol consumption especially before bedtime.
  • Stopping smoking as smoke irritates the soft tissue of the nose and throat.
  • Sleeping on your side or on your front.
  • Using a Liposome-based lubricating spray designed to reduce or eliminate snoring noise.
  • Snorers suffering from the particular sleep condition Sleep Apnoea may need to consult their doctor.
  • If you are uncertain of what causes your snoring and the remedies that are available, ask our pharmacist for advice.
