If you and your spouse suffer from horrible snoring, You are not alone. 23% couples suffer seriously from this terrible condition.
The problem isn't just the irritation of staying awake the whole night or waking up from a spouse's elbow over and over again. Not getting enough rest is simple life threatening.
It is life threatening for example when you loose your focus in a heavy traffic during the day. In our modern world, loosing focus for few seconds is a straight way to an accident.
It’s also life threatening because your whole emotional and physical balance will suffer. High blood pressure, stroke, and heart-attack are only three examples.
You can’t blame your self or your partner. You’ve probably tried several things to eliminate the snoring but nothing helped. I’ve had many clients who undertook expensive, dangerous surgery, only to find them self worse off afterwards.
To be able to cure your snoring, you must know what causes it.
Snoring is always caused by some kind of blockage in the breathing passage.
When the breathing passage is blocked, the airflow (breathing) becomes irregular, not smoothly flowing like it should be.
This irregular airflow slams the soft tissues in your breathing passages around like a door in a wind. Your throat and mouth become like speakers, powered by powerful quantifier and your partner can’t sleep.
The noise becomes really bad when the soft palate (a flexible part of the back of the roof of the mouth) also begins to vibrate. Sometimes, if the soft palate is weak, then the tip of it will bang down on the tongue (which may be dropping into the throat at the same time) like a bongo drum.
It can be very complicated to cure snoring despite the fact, it only has one main cause. The reason is that the blocks vary so much. And what’s worse, most people have more than one type of block, causing their snoring.
Here are just few examples of what can cause your snoring…
1) Weak tongue also falls into the throat and block it. This is very common if you sleep on your back but can also happen when sleeping on your site.
2) Tense jaw muscles put pressure on the breathing passages. This is what many dentist try to deal with by putting in dental implant. An easier way to avoid this is loosing up and relaxing the jaw muscles.
3) I mentioned the soft palate before. If it is weak, then it will flap around more easily and make the snoring sound. Notice that most of the time, the soft palate is not too big. It’s too weak.
4)The Soft palate may be too weak and not firm enough and will lay too close to the tongue, making it very easy to flap around and make the irritating snoring sounds.
5) Finally, anything that builds up in your throat will work as a dam for your breathing passage. The most common dams are fat or cigarette tags in the throat or allergy in the nasals.
So How Can You Get Rid of the Blocks That Cause Your Snoring ?
I guess when you look at it, it’s just a common sense. I’ve found that you can train this part of your body like any other part. Working out the breathing passages.
Using few exercises, each focused on one area in and around your throat, will remove ANY block you have. No matter what’s causing your snoring.
The simplicity of this is that no matter what blocks your breathing passage, the same few exercises will cure you.
Training the tongue will strengthen in and by doing that, prevent it from dropping into your throat when you sleep.
Loosing up the Jaw, using the jaw exercises will remove any tension from it. You’ll be surprised how much easier you’ll breath after you do the Jaw exercises.
The throat exercises open up the throat, preventing it from closing when you sleep. They’ll also strengthen and lift up your soft palate, so it won’t flap any more.
It’s about working smart not hard.
You make the choice how many minutes a day you want to train. The minimal time is only 3 minutes.
How long you exercise every day is up to you. You can train for as little as three minutes a day.
For quick permanent results, I recommend taking the program that requires ten minutes a day commitment.
It varies a lot between people how quickly the exercises work. I recommend that you be ready to work the program for two months. The program will most likely stop your snoring quicker than that. But if you’re ready to give it full blast for two months, you’re guaranteed to cure your self. You should be ready to commit for about two months to permanently cure your snoring. Although most likely you will have quiet nights long before those two months are up.
I hope I’ll soon receive your success story. I love nothing more than opening my email in the morning and reading the stories on how my clients healed them selves using my exercises.
Snoring is putting such a strain on many relationships. Many people have been forced to sleep separately. Other have learned to live with it but there is always a hidden resentment. I hope you give the exercises a try. I hope you give me the benefit of the doubt to try commit to working the exercises for few weeks. And I promise you, there will be nothing but quiet, restful nights in your future.
