Hi Guest!! What's on your mind?
Why do people snore?

As annoying as it is, snoring is a single problem nobody wishes to have. Apart from disturbing the peace and sleep of others, it does not say good of us. Let's know what you know about snoring, it's causes and of course remedies. Thank you !

Snoring occurs when the flow of air through the mouth and nose is physically obstructed. Air flow can be obstructed by a combination of factors, including:
1. Obstructed nasal airways:
Some people snore only during allergy seasons or when they have a sinus infection. Deformities of the nose such as a deviated septum(a structural change in the wall that separates one nostril from the other) or nasal polyps can also cause obstruction.
2. Poor muscle tone in the throat and tongue:
Throat and tongue muscles can be too relaxed,which allows them to collapse and fallback into the airway. This can result from deep sleep, alcohol consumption, or use of some sleeping pills.
3. Bulky throat tissue: Being overweight can cause bulky throat tissue. Also, children with large tonsils and adenoids often snore.
4. Long soft palate and/or uvula:
A long soft palate or a long uvula (the dangling tissue at the back of the mouth) can narrow the opening from the nose to the throat.
When these structures vibrate and bump against one another the airway becomes obstructed, causing snoring.
*remedy includes improved sleep habits and lifestyle changes may be effective cures you can engage in exercise to loose weight if you have gained weight.
Snoring in all sleep positions can mean your snoring is more severe and may require a more comprehensive treatment.

Snoring happens when you can't move air freely through your nose and throat during sleep. This makes the surrounding tissues vibrate, which produces the familiar snoring sound. People who snore often have too much throat and nasal tissue or floppy tissue that is more prone to vibrate
