Assuming that you or your partner don't have a medical condition such as a congenital deformity or sleep apnea, there might be an inexpensive cure that will help you get a good night's sleep, so long as you are open to trying one or two methods to see what works for you.
There are several natural remedies that have been touted over the years for the relief of snoring. Some of these include:
As nasal congestion is one of the culprits that produce snoring, the use of a vaporizer can reduce or loosen the mucus plug that causes the congestion. It can also keep the soft pallet from drying out, which also contributes to the effects of snoring.
The list below have been sold and used for years to relieve congestion, restrict allergies, reduce inflammation and relieve sore throats.
Immature Bitter Orange - helps to inhibit the production of allergens and relieve nasal congestion.
Wild Yam - an anti-inflammatory agent helps reduce inflammation (no brainer there!)
Ginger - increases the the production of saliva, which, in turn, helps keep the soft pallet from drying out when sleeping.
Honey and Arctium Fruit - both of these herbal remedies lubricate the throat, and are great for soothing a raw throat due to colds.
Although not widely considered as a medical treatment for snoring, the Chinese have long believed that a person's life force, or Ch'i, (literal translation is "air" or "breath",) can be affected by blockages.
Essential oils have long been used in the treatment of respiratory ailments, and have more recently gained popularity as cures for many afflictions. The most common oils used to alleviate snoring are Marjoram, Eucalyptus, Peppermint and Lavender, or you can have a special blend mixed for you.
Believe it or not, singing can be beneficial when it comes to quieting those snores! Singing strengthens the throat muscles, and although it isn't a bona-fide cure-all, it can be used with other remedies to help alleviate those nightly noises. Now you actually have a reason for singing in the shower!
