Snoring is a loud sound that is made while you are asleep.
Everyone, however, don’t snore.
Some people snore from day one and some
snore when they are tired.
Snoring can be a sign of a disorder.
The disorder is called sleep apnea.
Sleep Apnea is defined as not breathing
for more than 10 seconds while you sleep.
WHY DO PEOPLE SNORE
People snore for all different reasons. There are many overweight people and people who smoke that snore.
The causes of this are many
overweight people snore because of the excess fat around their throat while sleeping.
However, the cause of the smokers is simply
because they smoke.
The bad habit they have started has weakened their throats.
Also people who tend to sleep on their back seem to
snore a little.
Here are a couple of tips to cure snoring:
Sleep on your side, not on your back
Sleep with your head higher than your body
Try sleeping with additional pillows or without pillows altogether
Surgery for snoring is a serious and expensive procedure, and only for those with extremely severe cases that can't be cured any other way. See your physician if you think this applies to you.
Honestly people can’t say that they don’t snore.
Because at one point I was one of those person, until I went to bed very exhausted one night.
I had to be waked up because my snoring irritated my family members.
Also, when my little brother was one year old, he had his tonsils removed.
As he got older, he begins to snore.
I don’t know if the tonsils were the case, but he was the loudest thing in the house.
