Remedies for Snoring Include Lifestyle Changes and Medical Products (Part 2)

Steven Spainhower | 16 May, 2023

Nasal dilators open the airway in hopes of preventing snoring

Nasal dilators or nose vents are products that insert into the nostrils to widen the nasal cavities, keeping them open and improving airflow to reduce snoring.  They are easy to use and can be purchased over the counter.

You might abort the snort with natural remedies

There are several natural remedies to stop snoring.  Essential oils like lavender, eucalyptus, and peppermint have been found to help eliminate snoring. These oils can be diffused in an air-steamer or applied topically before bedtime to reduce inflammation and encourage easier breathing.

Herbal supplements like chamomile and valerian root can also help promote better sleep quality.  These supplements are available by capsule or in tea form to be taken before bedtime.

Surgery is the last resort for chronic snoring

For people with severe cases of snoring, surgery may be considered.  The procedures include uvulopalatopharyngoplasty (UPPP) and radio frequency ablation (RFA).  Their goal is to remove excess tissue in the throat or tighten the soft palate, which in turn should decrease vibration of tissues.  An ear nose and throat (ENT) doctor typically performs these procedures.  You can consult with one or more to determine if you’re a good candidate.  As with all surgeries, there are risks.

Overall, there are many strategies from lifestyle changes to medical devices, such as snore stopping devices, and procedures that can help you find the right snore stoppers.  There is a solution for virtually everyone; so if snoring is a problem for you, you might want to try one of these remedies to gain relief before snoring escalates to sleep apnea (OSD) obstructive sleep disorder.  In fact, OSD may already be a symptom of your snoring.
