Is There a Way to Stop Snoring?
Let's admit it. No one wants to sleep next to a person who loudly snores. Couples living together may have gotten used to their snoring partners but if given a chance, they would eliminate snoring sounds to have a more restful, undisturbed sleep. But is snoring normal or is there a reason to worry?Can people stop snoring?
Snoring is Abnormal Breathing
Snoring is connected to a person's breathing, so it is important to know why people snore.Snoring can be either harmless or a sign of a serious medical condition. Let's first differentiate between normal or regular breathing and snoring.
* Normal Breathing - Air passes through the nose then to the back of the throat that houses the soft palate, uvula and tongue. When awake, muscles hold the airway open; when asleep, muscles relax but the airway stays open.
* Snoring - It is the coarse sound of obstructed breathing. Instead of the muscles relaxing and the airways staying open during sleep, the soft tissues, nose and throat vibrate. It is caused by a partial blockage somewhere from the nose to the vocal chords.
This tells us that snoring is not really normal but a physical abnormality.Although it can't be wilfully stopped orcured, it can be controlled.Before we find ways to control it, we have to understand that not all snorers are the same, which means particular control methods apply to certain snorers. You may notice thatpeople snore differently and at various sound levels. This is because snoring can be of two types:
* Primary Snoring - loud upper airway breathing sounds, without signs of apnoea or cessation of breath
- Simple snoring
- Snoring without sleep apnoea
- Noisy breathing during sleep
- Benign snoring
- Rhythmical snoring
- Continuous snoring
* Snoring that Indicates Obstructive Sleep Apnoea (OSA) - breathing obstruction, absence of breathing
