Stop Snoring With Nasal Strips

When it comes to snoring and how to stop snoring, Breathe and Sleep understands the effects it can have on you, your sleep and the relationship you have with your partner.

The main cause of snoring is narrowing of the airways particularly in the throat, restricting the amount of air that you breathe. While you are asleep, the muscles at the back of your throat are at their most relaxed. As you breathe in and out these soft tissues vibrate, making you snore.

If you sleep on your back, it may be that at night the tongue falls back and impedes your airway. If you have your mouth open, this may be the problem. Or it could be a problem with the nose, such as a blocked stuffy nose or a deviated septum. Other factors can play a part, including excess weight or alcohol consumption.

When we sleep our breathing and heart rate slows and our muscles relax. This loss of muscle tone causes the soft palate and other tissue in the mouth, nose and throat to become limp and flaccid, reverberating in the air flow and making the sound that we commonly recognize as snoring.

Snoring is not easily cured, though it is something that can be successfully controlled. Breathe and Sleep is helping millions of people to benefit from improved sleep, whilst also reducing the strain that the problem can often place on relationships.

The problems associated with snoring may exist even when we are awake, though improved muscle tone during waking hours is usually enough to prevent us from snoring.

Causes outside of our control

  • Age – As you age, your throat becomes narrower and the muscle tone in your throat decreases.
  • Sex – Men have narrower air passages than women due to naturally having thicker necks and are more likely to snore.
  • Physical conditions – Everyone’s body is different. For example, the position of your jaw or the size of your tonsils can significantly affect whether you are likely to snore. Similarly, you might have a longer than normal uvula or a thick soft palate. Any of these factors can narrow the airway and cause snoring.

Causes within our control

  • Weight - If you are overweight, your throat tissues can be less firm and more inclined to vibrate when breathing.
  • Smoking – Smoke can irritate and damage the tissues at the back of your throat, causing your airways to become inflamed and restricted.
  • Certain medications and alcohol – Many medications, particularly if taken before bedtime, can increase snoring due to their relaxant effect on the muscles at the back of your throat. The same is true of alcohol.
  • Sleeping position – Sleeping on your back can narrow the airway and reduce airflow at the back of your throat.
