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.
