Health Tip: Solutions for Snoring

-- Snoring occurs when the upper airways become narrow, says Harvard Medical School. As a result, airflow is disrupted, making tissues vibrate and produce the snoring noise.

To help alleviate snoring, Harvard Medical school suggests:

  • Reduce alcohol consumption.
  • Lose excess weight.
  • Rinse stuffy sinuses with saline before bed.
  • Use allergy medication or a humidifier.
  • Sleep on your side.
  • Quit smoking.
