Do you snore? Does your partner snore? Snoring can be disruptive for both you and those you sleep with. According to the American Academy of Sleep Medicine, snoring occurs when the flow of air in your breathing makes the tissues in the back of your throat vibrate. Men are more likely than women to snore, and you may be surprised to learn that snoring is actually genetic.
Snoring can sometimes be a symptom of a bigger underlying problem. These include heart disease, diabetes, and obesity. This is why if you are overweight, the first step to stop snoring is to lose weight. If you are a healthy weight or get past that hurdle and still snore, try one or more of these home remedies. You will feel more well rested. And so will your partner!
