The most common factors that cause increased snoring

  • Sleeping on your back: most often position snorers will snore. This cause the mouth to open and the tongue to drop back into the airway, and leads to narrowing of the air passage.
  • Difficulty with nasal breathing: allergies, pregnancy, or a cold. Colds aren’t a result of the weather, going outside with wet hair or not dressing properly for plummeting temperatures. Colds are caused by a viral infection in the upper respiratory tract, leading to nasal congestion, i runny nose, sore throat and coughing. First symptoms usually include nose or throat discomfort, and although fever isn’t associated with a cold, some might experience a lowgrade fever in the early stages. Symptoms usually disappear within 4-10 days. Since colds aren’t caused by bacteria, there is no benefit in using antibiotic medications. In fact, using antibiotics to treat colds is a likely cause of antibiotic-resistant super-bugs, an escalating problem in medical care.
  • Overweight: fat deposits in the area of the neck and throat cause an increase in the size of the tissues, or increase pressure on the tissues that surround the air passage.Large tongue, long soft palate, large uvula, and large tonsils.
  •  A small lower jaw: less room in the back of the throat for the soft tissues and tongue.
  • Smoking: smoking damages the cilia (tiny hairs) lining the nose and lungs that are responsible for sweeping germ invaders out i of the body. Smoking also dries out the lining of nasal passages, giving a leg up to germs.
  • Alcohol: can cause a non-snorer to snore and can turn an occasional snorer into a loud snorer. Alcoholic beverages challenge the liver, whose primary responsibility is to filter toxins and germs out of the bloodstream. Alcohol in beer, wine and spirits also i dehydrates our cells, leaving them susceptible to disease.
