Does Your Snoring Get Worse In The Summer?

Does Your Snoring Get Worse In The Summer?

It is estimated that over 13 million people in the UK suffer from allergies such as hay fever. That could be bad news for you and your partner because hay fever can aggravate snoring.

According to the Sleep Foundation, Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) is linked with allergic rhinitis – a condition caused by indoor and outside allergens. Hay fever is a type of allergic rhinitis.

The summer is the worst time of year for allergy sufferers. Allergens found in pollen, moulds, dust mites and pet dander trigger a chemical release in the body that causes nasal congestion.

In turn, nasal congestion contributes to snoring. An inflamed nose makes breathing more difficult which often means people tend to sleep with their mouth open – which subsequently encourages snoring.

How Does Hay Fever Impact Snoring?

Hay fever is an allergic reaction to airborne pollen – which is naturally more prevalent during the summer months. The reaction is actually a response from the immune system to help fight potential infections.

The cells that are called upon to fight infection, flood your upper airways with molecules that cause inflammation and restrict the space in the nasal passage. The inflamed space makes it more difficult to breathe through your nose.

When people with hay fever try to sleep, your throat becomes dry becomes air is not being absorbed through the nose. When you inhale, the air causes the soft tissues at the back of your throat to vibrate.

As you slip from light sleep to deep sleep, the muscles in the roof of your mouth and throat relax. Your tongue slips further back into your mouth. All these factors contribute to blocking your airways and causing the soft tissues to vibrate.

Because hay fever causes nasal congestion, people that suffer from allergens are more likely to snore. The vibrating tissues make your snoring louder.

How To Remedy Summer Snoring

Although symptoms of rhinitis allergens may be evident all year round, the explosion of pollen and moisture in the air heighten the effects.

It has been suggested that reducing the number of allergens around the house will help to manage hay fever. Investing in a dehumidifier reduces the amount of moisture in the air and regular hoovering eliminates dust mites, pollen and other indoor allergens that lurk in the carpets.

The better option, however, is the Snorewizard Mouthpiece which prevents soft tissues from vibrating and allows you to breathe more naturally. This advanced device is a far more cost-effective solution than buying a dehumidifier and does not require any effort – unlike hoovering every day.

The Snorewizard Mouthpiece is a soft plastic palette which lowers jaw slightly and opens the airways at the back of the throat. It’s ready to use straight out the box and is proven to reduce or completely stop tissues from vibrating.

If you suffer from summer allergens, don’t make your night’s sleep even more restless by snoring. You will probably keep your partner awake as well – then both of you will be feeling miserable and grumpy.

National Stop Snoring Week 2019

5 Reasons To Stop Snoring

Snoring is often joked about but for people (and their partner’s) that suffer from Obstructive Sleep Apnoea (OSA), consistently experiencing disrupted sleep is no laughing matter.

This Monday, 22nd April, marks the National Stop Snoring week in the UK. The aim of the annual event is to raise awareness about the problems associated with snoring and OSA, and to inform people that snoring can be controlled.

What is Obstructive Sleep Apnoea?

Snoring is caused by the narrowing of the airways in the back of the throat. This causes the soft tissues to dehydrate and vibrate as the air passes through. The vibration causes the sound we know as snoring.

OSA is a medical condition that causes snoring. It is caused by a lack of muscle tone that causes the upper airway to collapse. People that suffer from OSA can stop breathing for at least 10 seconds – sometimes up to 50 seconds.

People that suffer with OSA experience episodes of awakening during the night. Disrupted sleep patterns typically have a knock-on effect. Here are five reasons why you should look for solutions to help you stop snoring.

Snoring Causes Disharmony in Relationships

Snoring is often more disturbing for your partner. Being kept awake all night makes them annoyed and irritable. A healthcare study undertaken in France revealed that 95% of snorers disturb their partners.

Subsequently, partners are in a foul mood which spills over into the day and can challenge the harmony in a relationship. Yet despite the problems caused in relationships, YouGov plc reports that only 7% of snorers are willing to find a solution to prevent snoring.

Improve Your Mood

People that do not get an adequate amount of sleep are more prone to bouts of depression and high-stress levels.

When the brain is well rested, the emotional center processes feelings better and produces healthy and balanced responses. When you don’t get enough sleep, the connection between the amygdala and the prefrontal cortex is interrupted and you feel less happy.

Maintain a Healthy Weight

A lack of sleep interferes with your body’s ability to trigger peptide 1 – a hormone that enables your stomach to feel full. As a consequence, people with OSA tend to overeat.

A study in the United States found that people that sleep less than seven hours a night are 7.5 times more likely to be overweight. Sleeping well, on the other hand, reduces the risk of obesity.

Experience Better Health

OSA prevents oxygen from reaching the lungs which subsequently increases the risk of health issues. Snoring has been linked with chronic conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure, kidney disease and heart problems.

While you’re asleep, your brain sets about repairing blood vessels, tissues and the vital organs together with breaking down glucose. Without sufficient quantities of oxygen, the brain cannot operate as effectively and the body suffers.

Improve Concentration

Tiredness disrupts your ability to concentrate which can have an adverse effect on your work performance. Sleep deprivation causes the brain to operate lower and the body to feel weak due to a lack of energy.

If you’re a snorer, it is in your best interests (and your partner’s) to seek help. Although OSA is difficult to cure, it can be controlled. Our anti-snoring pillow and stop snoring mouthpiece are proven to be effective – and what better time is there to address snoring than National Stop Snoring Week!

Does Surgery Cure Snoring? Experts Say, No

The National Health Service (NHS) plan to phase out surgical intervention to cure chronic snoring.

Together with 16 other surgical procedures, operations to prevent snoring have been considered “ineffective”. The Clinical Commission said 17 procedures currently available on the NHS are unnecessary and the risks outweigh the benefits.

Snoring can range from the occasional night of noise to significantly disturbing your partner every night. In more severe cases, snoring is a symptom of obstructive sleep apnea.

It was previously thought that surgery to remove soft tissue around the throat and nasal areas would prevent snoring.

However, the joint committee of clinical commissioning groups concludes there is no evidence that surgery to the palate improves snoring.

Furthermore, the risks involved with the surgery could result in patients experiencing persistent side effects.

What does snoring surgery involve? 

Snoring is caused when the upper airway is obstructed. This creates a vibration that originates from airflow disturbing soft tissues in the upper respiratory tract. 

Typical surgical procedures to prevent snoring include removing tissue in the throat, widening the upper airway, correcting abnormally shaped walls or removing the tonsils, nasal polyps and adenoids. 

The goal of nasal and throat surgery is to reposition bony structures in the upper airway in order to provide a clear passage for air to flow through. In some cases, several surgical procedures are required. 

Some procedures also require plastic cylinder implants in the roof of the mouth to stiffen the soft tissues to prevent it from vibrating. 

How to stop snoring 

Snoring can be caused by a number of reasons. There are natural remedies to prevent snoring without needing surgery. Observe snoring patterns and you will probably be able to identify a cure. 

Conditions that foster snoring are age, obesity, nasal and sinus problems, alcohol, smoking, medications, or just the way you’re built. A narrow throat, cleft palate, or enlarged adenoids can all obstruct airflow. 

The NHS advise changing your daily habits could help cure snoring. Conservative options include avoiding alcohol, stopping smoking, losing weight and sleeping on your back. 

For snorers that do not fall into the categories highlighted by the NHS will find solutions in various sleeping aids. 

The anti-snoring Snorewizard mouthpiece, for example, repositions the lower jaw and opens up the airways at the back of the throat. This promotes natural breathing and cancels out annoying vibrations. 

Another option is to alter your sleeping position by elevating your head four-inches. This encourages your tongue and jaw to fall forwards and clears the obstruction of airflow at the back of the throat. 

The Goodnight Anti Snore Pillow evenly distributes the weight of your head and neck in order to allow the airway at the back of the throat to open. The pillow is made from sensitive memory foam which moulds into your natural sleeping pattern. 

What’s more, the anti-snore pillow works when you sleep on your side, so if you struggle to get to sleep when lying on your back you don’t have to. 

If you’ve been contemplating surgical intervention to prevent snoring, why not try one of our goodnight sleeping tools first. There is no risk and they are effective.

Sound Mental Health = Good Night’s Sleep

Having to get out of bed when you haven’t had a good quality sleep is a struggle. Sometimes you may not even sleep at all. To face work feeling lethargic, sick to the stomach and with pinpricks in your eyes is not a good start to the day.

Yet around 16 million people in the UK have sleepless nights on a regular basis.

Insomnia is caused by a state of mind; worry, anxiety, depression, and rumination are just a few of the reasons keeping you awake at night. It could also be that your partner is snoring.

Whatever the problem is, a lack of quality sleep can impair your mental health. Insomnia can aggravate mental states like stress, depression and anxiety. You start worrying about not sleeping and fall into a vicious cycle that can be difficult to escape.

Insomnia Effects Your Mood

The link between insomnia and depression – and vice versa – are well founded. However, even one bad night’s sleep can effect your mood.

Tiredness causes irritability and slows down your cognitive function. People that suffer sleepless night’s regularly will develop irritability, feelings of insecurity, low self-esteem, frustration and many other negative side effects caused by sleep deprivation.

In essence, a lack of quality sleep will ruin your life, both short-term and long-term. The long-term affects on your mental health will disrupt your ability to concentrate and negatively impact your work performance. Your relationship will probably suffer as well.

It’s important to have a good quality sleep, so if you do struggle with falling sleep, don’t take stimulants. First of all, stimulants do not provide you with a good quality sleep and you can be dependent on them.

For example, alcohol doesn’t aid sleep.Taking a nightcap or drinking heavily may help you fall asleep, but it also reduces rapid eye movement (REM) so you don’t sleep deeply.

Alcohol is also a diuretic and can cause you to wake in the night needing the toilet. You will also become dehydrated from sweating and possibly keep your partner awake because you’re snoring. Their annoyance is definitely going to change your mood!

Mental Health Benefits of a Good Night’s Sleep

The Sleep Foundation say that “sleep is a vital indicator of your overall health.” If you turn in a good quality sleep every night, you stay in better health and live longer.

Researchers found that people with mental health problems are more likely to suffer from insomnia. In turn, sleep deprivation worsens mental health.

When you have a good quality deep sleep, the body temperature drops, the muscles relax and your heart rate slows down. The physiological changes are believed to boost the immune system.

Sleeping also plays a part in the mind’s ability to consolidate and organise information, and thus improves memory. On the flip side, a bad night’s sleep impairs your memory.

Although scientists are still trying to thread the pieces together, they have discovered that sleeplessness increases the amount of neurotransmitters and stress hormones which causes emotional responses to become unregulated and ultimately impair your capacity for rational thinking.

Getting a good night’s sleep cannot be underestimated. If you are struggling to sleep because of worry, anxiety or depression, look into ways of controlling your mental state. A sleeping aid may even be the answer to help your mind relax.

Is Snoring Ruining Your Sex Life?

There are two things a bed is great for; sleep and sex. However, snoring can disturb both and ruin bedtime treats for you and your partner.

A lack of sleep not only causes tiredness and makes you cranky, it can also interfere with the emotional and sexual intimacy you experience with your partner.

Snoring can put a serious strain on a relationship. If your partner cannot sleep because of your incessant snoring, frustration and resentment can build up until it explodes.

You will know from experience that a lack of sleep can leave you irritable and less able to manage conflict. Research also indicates disturbed sleep patterns cause couples to be less appreciative and feelings of selfishness emerge.

What does science say about snoring?

Scientific studies show snoring not only creates relationship issues due to sleeplessness, but can also have a negative impact on your sex life.

Severe cases of sleep apnea, characterised by a shortness of breath that disrupts sleep, was linked to sexual dysfunction some time ago.

Researchers now think even mild forms of sleep deprivation such as snoring can affect the sexual drive and enjoyment in middle-aged and elderly men.

A study by a team of doctors at the Mayo Clinic found a correlation between snoring and reduced sexual satisfaction. Although this study did not reveal an association with the biological causes of sexual dysfunction, it is thought there could be a connection.

Loss of Libido

One of the many side affects of sleep deprivation is the body’s ability to produce testerone, the sex hormone that occurs naturally whilst you sleep.

In order to produce testosterone, the body needs oxygen to process the hormone and sustain a heathy libido.

Because snoring is caused by a blockage in the airways, snorers may not be getting sufficient quantities of oxygen for the brain to instruct the testicles to produce hormones. The consequence of reduced testosterone is a diminished sex drive.

Studies have also shown that reduced levels of testosterone in men is also linked with low energy levels, poor concentration, fatigue and decreased strength, all of which hamper your sex life.

Erectile Dysfunction

The correlation between men who snore heavily and a loss in sexual urges has also been linked to erectile dysfunction. A medical study in Taiwan showed that 42% of men with sleep apnea were also impotent.

A lack of sleep breeds fatigue and depression which can lead to a problem with penile erection together with other vascular or neurological abnormalities.

When the brain does not receive enough oxygen, it does not send signals to other parts of the body. An insufficient amount of oxygen is a common problem for snorers, and could contribute to erectile dysfunction.

Snoring Solutions

Snoring is known to force couples to sleep in separate rooms. Even in households where this is possible, sleeping apart from your partner will impact your sex life.

For couples that want to sleep in the same bed, the SnoreWizard pillow or mouthpiece prevents snoring – so you and your partner can get a good night’s sleep and enjoy a healthy sex life.

Why Women Snore And How To Prevent It

Although snoring is mostly associated with men, several studies have shown that women also snore. According to one study published by sleepeducation.org, about 24 percent of adult women are habitual snorers.

However, further research discovered the reason for snoring in females is typically caused by another condition. Whilst most causes for snoring should not give you cause for concern, it can cause irritation, tiredness and problems with your relationship.

Below, we have detailed the reasons why women snore. If snoring is disturbing the sleep pattern of you or your partner, you should look into rectifying the issue sooner rather than later.

Pregnancy

Snoring can occur during pregnancy because of an increase in abdominal size. The uterus can press against the diaphragm and restrict the amount of air passing through to your nose and mouth.

Your  estrogen levels and blood count also increase when you are pregnant. This can cause mucus to collect in your nasal passage and block the airways.

Obesity

Weight gain has been found to be a significant cause of snoring in women, especially when the distribution of fat transfers to the neck. This causes an obstruction in the throat which forces air into a smaller space whereby the throat vibrates.

Hormones

Although studies have conflicting results, it seems that some post menopausal women can develop snoring habits in relation to sleep apnea.

It is thought that female hormones protect the upper airway dilator muscles from becoming obstructed  whilst you sleep. However, the decline of oestrogen and progesterone cause anatomical structures to collapse and the airways become narrow.

Exhaustion

Women with busy lifestyles can develop hypothyroidism, and exhaustion has been linked with an increase in snoring and sleep apnea. The reasons for this are unclear, but one possibility could be due to how relaxed the muscles become during an intensely deep sleep which is natural for people suffering from exhaustion.

Craniofacial features

The structure of your face could mean you develop a snoring habit later in life. Craniofacial features typically cause more snoring in men because they have a significantly larger pharynx than women. The face structure is therefore more prone to collapse.

However, it is also possible that the airways in women will narrow when the anatomical structure of your face changes as you age. When the pharynx becomes tighter there is less space for air to pass through.

Diabetes

Studies have also shown an increasing association between snoring and diabetes mellitus. Snoring is twice as likely to occur in women that have diabetes due to the influence of sexual hormones.

How to prevent snoring

The tactics you choose to prevent snoring may depend on the reason why you snore. General advice is to lose weight, avoid alcohol and try hormone replacement therapy.
SnoreWizard can also help. We have specially designed pillows and a mouthpiece which prevent the vibration of soft tissues in the throat and neck.

The stop snoring mouthpiece opens the airways to allow more air through, whilst the snore pillow levels out your neck in order to reduce the pressure on your diaphragm.

If you’ve developed a snoring habit that is disrupting the sleep of you and/or your partner, SnoreWizard can help. For a good night’s sleep, contact us today.

Why Do People Snore?And How To Prevent It!

Why Do People Snore?And How To Prevent It!

People that snore on a regular basis usually have disruptive sleep patterns which lead to fatigue, irritability, depression, increased health problems and sexual dysfunction.

And it’s not only snorers that develop daytime problems from a lack of sleep; you keep your partner awake too. What’s more they suffer from the same issues mentioned above. As a consequence, relationships for snorers can often deteriorate.

Thankfully, there is a solution. And no, we don’t mean sleeping in separate rooms. The best way to stop snoring is with an anti-snoring pillow that changes your posture.

What causes snoring?

When you sleep the neck muscles relax. In some sleeping postures, most notably the supine position, on your back, the upper airways in your throat and nose become too narrow and cause the surrounding tissues to vibrate.

Snoring is more prevalent in people that sleep on their back, although not everyone that sleeps in the supine position snores. People that snore tend to have enlarged tonsils, or your tongue falls back and partially blocks the airways in your throat.

Anatomically, snoring can also be caused by the shape of your nose or jaw. If the structure of the temporomandibular joint, the tissue that spans from the temple to the jaw, is stretched while you sleep, it can narrow the airways in your throat and nose.

There are several other reasons for why people snore; age, obesity, nasal problems and alcohol can trigger snoring episodes. However, if you snore regularly, the most likely cause is because of your sleeping posture.

Change your sleeping posture

The position you adopt in bed plays a crucial role in the quality of sleep. Studies found that snorers and people that suffer from obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA), typically lay on their back.

When you sleep in the supine position, gravity forces the tongue and soft palate to fall back towards the throat. This subsequently obstructs the airways and causes breathing abnormalities.

An easy cure for snoring is to change your sleeping posture and lay on your side. In the lateral position the airways are stable and less inclined to collapse.

However, some people experience difficulty falling to sleep when they change position. When sleeping postures feel unnatural it’s much more difficulty to get comfy whereby sleep becomes inhibited.

Anti-snoring pillows

The best solution for snorers that can only rest on your back at night, is to adjust the position of the chin. Your chin needs to be higher so that the airways in your throat are not too narrow. This allows air to pass freely without causing tissues to vibrate.

Anti-snoring pillows can help. They are designed with a cervical ridge that elevates the head and provides stability for the natural curve of your neck. With your head in a neutral position, you breathe naturally.

The anti-snore pillow manufactured by Snorewizard is made from memory foam which moulds into the natural contours of your head and neck. Subsequently, the weight of your head is evenly distributed so that it holds in a natural position and prevents snoring.

There is no point inviting health or relationship problems just because you can only sleep on your back. If you’re a regular snorer, purchase an anti-snore pillow and treat yourself, and your partner, to a good night’s sleep.

The Best Foods To Eat To Banish Snoring

What you eat in the last few hours before you go to bed can impact on how well you sleep that night. As a general rule of thumb, one must avoid caffeine and rich and heavy foods least 4 hours before you retire for the evening. But what can you add to your late afternoon diet to promote a dreamy snore-free slumber? The Snorewizard editor investigates:

Chamomile tea
Long renowned for promoting a good night’s sleep, Molecular Medicine Reports notes: “Chamomile is widely regarded as a mild tranquilizer and sleep-inducer. Sedative effects may be due to the flavonoid, apigenin that binds to benzodiazepine receptors in the brain”. A hot cup of chamomile tea is best enjoyed around 30 minutes before bedtime, to make the most of its shut-eye boosting benefits.

Almond milk
Need a hot, milky drink before bed? The lactose found it cow’s milk can trigger congestion and phlegm production, raising the chances of snoring in people with lactose intolerance. Unfortunately, many dairy products have the same result, bye bye night time chocolate snacking! Opt for almond milk to avoid the problem. Other rice, oat and soy milk will do if almond milk is not to your taste. Cocoa optional!

Oily fish
Enjoying a tasty fish supper of salmon, trout or mackerel in the evening will not only be delicious gilled or roasted, can ease inflammation throughout the body. Inflammation can cause nasal passages to close, making snoring an inevitability. According to thehealthline.com, the benefits of fish oil for heart health include: Lowering cholesterol levels and triglycerides, reducing blood pressure and eliminating plaques.

Onions
Onions are natural decongestants and are also packed with anti-oxidants.  Strong, aromatic foods like onion including garlic and horseradish can help prevent snoring by drying out your nose, reducing congestion. Some claim that these foods also reduce swelling in your tonsils, preventing sleep apnoea. Onions can also add a hot, sweet and sharp crunch to your favourite summer salad.

Honey
Honey relaxes and soothes the throat, and also reduces swelling which is why it’s been used for common cough and cold treatments for centuries – why not stir a spoonful in your chamomile tea or dairy-free milky drink before bed to beat snoring.

Holiday Tips For Snorers

Summer is well a truly in full swing, isn’t it just the most optimistic time of year? The season is full of promise, carefree days and highly anticipated summer holidays abroad. Not all of us share this optimistic view of the summer as it can be hellish sharing a room with a snorer at home and on holiday. If you’re on a jet set countdown and feeling anxious about sleeping arrangements then perhaps our blog on Holiday Tips For Snorers will be of help.

Stay cool

When booking your holiday accommodation, be sure to check that your room has good ventilation.  A stuffy, hot and dry room isn’t the ideal place to drift off easily. Additionally, nasal congestion can cause snoring, and these conditions are only made worse if the air in your room is too dry. Hot dry air can further irritate your nasal passages – this irritation can also cause snoring to intensify.

Drink moderately

When on holiday we recommend you enjoy yourself but drink moderately. Alcohol relaxes the muscles in the throat, and makes snoring more likely. Keep your alcohol consumption moderateand drink no closer than three hours before bedtimeto avoid having alcohol interfere with your sleep and increase your risk of snoring.

Be active

Keeping active on holiday will not only boost your mood but it will aid drifting off naturally at night-time. Mix up your sunbathing sessions with regular walks and swimming. Aerobic exercises use large muscle groups to move at a steady, rhythmic pace. This type of exercise works your heart and lungs, improving their endurance. This helps your body use oxygen more efficiently and will help reduce snoring.
