Step 1: Position Yourself for Better Sleep
Sleeping flat on your back causes the flesh of your throat to relax and block the airway, which can lead to snoring. Sleep on your side and elevate your head four inches using a wedge pillow. This may ease breathing and encourage your tongue and jaw to move forward. It can also prevent snoring by making your neck muscles elongated. If you sleep with someone who snores, create a sound barrier by sleeping back to back.
Step 2: Go on a Snore Diet
A big contributor to snoring is extra weight. Just a 5% drop in weight can make a significant difference in snoring. Being dehydrated is also a big contributor to snoring, so stock up on foods with high water content like fruits and vegetables. If you sleep with someone who snores, eat foods that promote sleep like halibut with broccoli and oranges, veggie pasta will sprinkle with Parmesan or turkey stuffed with mushrooms and spinach. These foods contain certain compounds that interact with the body’s natural chemistry to help start the sleep process and maintain it. They also boost calmness and serotonin.
Step 3: Decongest for Better Rest
Use a neti pot to drain your sinuses, which may be causing congestion and snoring. For someone who sleeps with a snorer, spray your pillow with lavender. Some studies show that it can help with sleep by increasing the percentage of deep sleep for both men and women. Also, those who use lavender have reported higher energy levels in the morning. Try a mist, candle or even lavender oil before you hit the sheets.
STOP SNORING MOUTHPIECE
HOW DOES VITALSLEEP MOUTHPIECE STOP SNORING?
VitalSleep is a mandibular repositioning stop snoring mouthpiece which means that when inserted in the mouth it moves the lower jaw in a forward position and in doing so opens up the air passage at the rear of the throat.
The correct term is Mandibular Advancement Mouthpiece or MAM. There are a number of different designs right across the industry but in essence the principle is the same. Open up the air passage at the rear of the throat where relaxed soft muscle tissue collapses restricting the clear flow of air in and out of the throat, and you will control snoring.
The tongue, which also contributes to this blockage, is also encouraged forward when using one of the MAM anti snoring devices.
When you open up the air passage using a MAM the soft tissue does not vibrate as the air tries to rush past. This vibration is the snoring sound we relate to.
VitalSleep can be boiled and softened to fit the individual user. It wraps around the gums and mouth not the individual teeth, in an attempt to hold the device firmly in place. It is then adjusted using a special key provided, to move the lower jaw or mandibular forward in small increments. This adjustment can be made forwards and backwards again to suit the individual snorers comfort position.
Breathing is not a problem when the mouthpiece is in use due to the design. Large holes are placed in the front of the stop snoring mouthpiece to ensure airflow is not restricted through the mouth.
