Although snoring seems a normal phenomenon in our society, it may bring several serious problems to you. First of all, snoring creates very irritating noise that annoys your partner. A lot of broken families have snoring as the root of the problem. I myself faced to this problem before. Medically, the biggest danger of snoring is the association with sleep apnea (the absence of breathing).
What is snoring?
“Snoring is a noise produced when an individual breathes (usually produced when breathing in) during sleep which in turn causes vibration of the soft palate and uvula (that thing that hangs down in the back of the throat).” (http://www.stanford.edu/~dement/snoring.html)
There are many factors that can cause snoring, such as the weakness of the throat muscle, malpositioning of the jaw, nasal obstruction, alcohol or drug intake, lying on your back, etc. To choose appropriate treatment methods, we need to find the correct reason.
If you have snoring, don’t worry, there are several simple methods that can help you overcome this problem. After searching Internet, I found an eBook “Cure Your Snore” that contains some useful information and many treatment methods.
