About Snoring

IT AFFECTS YOU BOTH

About 90 million Americans suffer from snoring. Half of them may have a serious condition called Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA). The other half are known as primary snorers.

Snoring can be a serious sleep issue for both the snorer and their bed partner. Getting a good night’s sleep affects everything from your mood to your weight to intimacy with your partner. Over 41% of women who say they need a good night’s sleep instead have it interrupted by a snoring partner. It’s not surprising that people resort to everything from special pillows to earplugs to sprays to stop snoring. Most of these solutions have been proven ineffective in treating snoring.

The key to success is targeting the cause of snoring.

What Causes Snoring?

Your throat is like a small wind tunnel. In some people, this tunnel partially closes during sleep. This forces the air you breathe to move more quickly through this tunnel and makes the soft tissues of your throat vibrate. That vibration causes the noise we know as snoring. Being overweight, using alcohol, and sleeping on your back can aggravate the problem.
