No Need for Snoring, Let Your Headboards Do the Talking

April 23, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 178

National Stop Snoring Week is an annual event promoting general awareness about the snoring phenomenon. This year it take place between the 23rd and 27th April. In recognition of this fact we thought it might be fitting to highlight some points of interest about this often misunderstood affliction.

Snoring is a very common problem and effects over 15 million people in the UK alone. Unsurprisingly, most of these are men, who outnumber women considerably in terms of statistics. More surprising however is that, despite being common, snoring is not considered normal.

The chief problem with snoring is the inadvertent suffering it causes other sleepers. If you share a bed with a snorer then a good night's rest may be hard to come by. Fortunately, snoring is a well researched field of study and there are many insights into the causes and remedies.

Neither is snoring a constant problem. Most of the time it is perfectly harmless and can vary from constant to very occasional. However, snoring can be the first indication of a much more series issue known as obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA), which is characterized by irregular breathing during sleep and can lead on to further problems. If you do suspect you, or someone else, suffers from OSA then you should seek medical advice.

Snoring results from irregular airflow in the back of the throat caused by blockage of the air passage. The actual cause for this blockage can vary widely, but three of the main contributors are being overweight, smoking and drinking alcohol.

There are a number of treatments available that can help you to stop snoring. Perhaps the most extreme measure is to undergo surgery, but this should always be considered a very last resort.

Milder symptoms can be alleviated with very little effort. Anti-snoring devices are designed to fit over the nose and keep your airways open and clear. If you have allergies or asthma you could also try hypoallergenic pillows. Snoring can also be reduced by regularly cleaning your bed, mattress, headboards and underneath the bed.

Not all snorers are the same. There are a number of tests you can perform to ascertain which type of snorer you are and which treatment will be most effective. These include the nose, mouth and tongue test. These tests essentially help you to determine whether it is your nose, mouth or tongue that is causing the problem, or whether your snoring is allergy induced, and your choice of treatment should be chosen based on your discovery.

The alternative is to consult a doctor who should be able to quickly identify what type of snorer you are and what treatment you should undergo to alleviate symptoms.

Remember, the implications of snoring extend much further than the sufferer. If your partner's snoring keeps you up at night you may find yourself sitting with your back against the headboard waiting for the snoring to stop so you can get some shut eye. If this is the case make sure you invest in good quality designer headboards that offer adequate back support.
