If you are someone who snores when you are sleeping, then you could be causing someone sleeping with you a sleeping problem. Health problems can arise as a result of lack of sleep. You have sleep disorder if you and your partner snore. It is advisable to see a doctor that specializes in sleep disorder. Sometimes the doctor will let you get further testing in a sleep clinic or else he will recommend some sleep disorder or snoring remedies that you can try.
There are many snoring aids that are available in the market today. This includes things like chin straps, chin cushions, medical tape jaw supporters, chin up strips, nasal strips, nasal clips, nasal brace, nasal decongestants, and oral products that hold your tongue in place so that your air way is not blocked.
If you have sleep apnea, you stop breathing when your airway is obstructed. If you have this condition, the doctor may recommend CPAP or continuous positive airway pressure device which will push air into your airway. Doctors also recommend sleeping on your side with a pillow to elevate your head.
You can also get a device called a snore stopper which can be worn on your wrist. This device works by sending small pulses every time you snore so that you can adjust your position. If you put something underneath the head of your mattress, you will be able to sleep with your head elevated. Sleeping on your side can be difficult for you, but with a sleep positioner, it will make it easier for you.
Breathing in steam, using a room humidifier, or trying nasal strips can help clear your passage of congestion.
Taking calcium with magnesium will help enhance your sleep. Other herbal sleep aid remedies that you can take include wild lettuce, passion flower extract, hops, chamomile capsules, teas or tincture to reduce stress, and relieve headaches. Putting lavender or hops in your pills can also help you fall asleep.
You can also take supplements in order to help your sleep problems. For a good sleep cycle, you can take melatonin. The valerian herb acts like valium and is not addictive. Green tea can help you sleep deeper because it contains L-theanine which is an amino acid; you can also take 5-HTP which is like melatonin but also helps with depression and anxiety.
Sometimes, the food that we eat can help cure our sleep disorders. Foods containing tryptophan are good to help induce sleep; some of these foods are those rich in carbohydrates, cheese, nuts, beans, and many more. Tryptophan, however, should not be taken as a supplement since it may cause joint and muscle pain, depression and learning difficulties.
