Snoring problem

The most important thing in our lives is being (to be happy and well being) healthy and to take care of ourselves. The job of keeping healthy is one where we, as individuals, play the biggest role.

Up to 48% of adults and children experience trouble sleeping and snoring. Having a restful sleep and to prevent snoring is very important for the human body. People with this disorder have difficulty concentrating, focusing, problems at school, and are affected at work, sleep, and less alert during the day, which causes problems for everyone.

Snoring is caused by a vibration sound of the soft palate including the uvula, caused by the blockage of airways located at the back of the throat, and nose. Snoring is worse if the oral airway is narrow due to enlarged tonsils, and tongue. During sleep the loud noise is 87 decibels (dB). These airways, can be blocked for many reasons, such as sleeping on your back which causes gravity to pull the jaw and tongue down, and back. Allergies or a cold cause difficulty with nasal breathing, as being overweight caused by fat deposits in the area of the neck, throat increase in the size.

Some people who snore have sleep apnea (obstructive sleep apnea syndrome OSAS) caused by blockage of the soft tissues at the back of the throat, when a person repeatedly stop breathing for 10 to 15 seconds or longer during sleep.

Here are some tips for people who snore:

  • exercise daily to maintain a healthy body weight, and to improve muscle toning
  • snoring can disrupt the sleep of other family members, roommates and neighbors
  • if snoring becomes a problem for you, and affects your family life, see a health professional
