Q: How do I help my partner with their snoring? (Amanda F.)

A:
Hello Amanda!

Lie them on their side.
The NHS says that if you sleep on your side, it avoids the squashed airways you could get if you sleep on your back. If your partner is likely to roll onto their back often, buy them a body pillow that will prevent this.

Place extra pillows under their head. We recommend elevating the head with good quality pillows.

Q: Can snoring be cured? (Adam P.)

A:
Hi Adam!

There are a few avenues to help alleviate snoring.

Lose weight. Losing even a little bit of weight can reduce fatty tissue in the back of the throat and decrease, or even stop, snoring.

Quit smoking. If you smoke, your chances of snoring are high. Smoking irritates the membranes in the nose and throat which can block the airways and cause snoring. While quitting is easier said than done, it can bring quick snoring relief.

Avoid alcohol, sleeping pills, and sedatives because they relax the muscles in the throat and interfere with breathing. Also talk to your doctor about any prescription medications you’re taking, as some encourage a deeper level of sleep which can make snoring worse.

Be careful what you eat before bed. Research shows that eating large meals or consuming certain foods such as dairy or soymilk right before bedtime can make snoring worse.

Exercise in general can reduce snoring, even if it doesn’t lead to weight loss. That’s because when you tone various muscles in your body, such as your arms, legs, and abs, this leads to toning the muscles in your throat, which in turn can lead to less snoring. There are also specific exercises you can do to strengthen the muscles in your throat.
