Many of us make fun of people who snore, but a snorer, besides being embarrassed, could have a serious underlying condition.
Snoring occurs when the free passage of air is obstructed in the nose and mouth during sleep. This can happen because of a narrowed airway, problems with the soft issues of the throat, or even wrong posture while sleeping. In many cases, the breathing of the snorer gets disrupted for a while during sleep, a condition called sleep apnea, which can sometimes lead to heart problems.
Take ½ tsp of ghee, that is clarified butter.
Warm this very slightly.
Apply this to the inner nostrils in the morning and at night.
Stir in 1 tsp of turmeric powder, or haldi powder, into a cup of warm milk, and have it at night before bedtime.
Though these measures can be used to combat the problem of snoring, what is more important is the way we sleep. If snoring is a problem, ensure you follow these precautions.
Always ensure your head is elevated when sleeping, to prevent the tongue from rolling back and obstructing airway flow. You could try propping yourself up with the help of a few pillows or cushions.
Do not sleep on your back, as this pushes the tongue and soft palate against the throat, again impairing the free flow of air. Instead, sleep on your side with your arms wrapping a pillow.
Heavy meals or alcohol consumed 2-3 hours before bedtime can also lead to snoring, or avoid both.
Snoring can also be exacerbated by smoking, to try to quit this habit.
Follow these tips, sleep well, and allow those around you to do the same.
