Snoring usually occurs when a person is going into deep sleep from light sleep. The throat tissues and the roof palate tissues relax obstructing the airway. The air then pushes forcefully into the air passage resulting in a sound we know as snoring. Allergies, asthma, cold, nasal congestion, and sinus infection can cause snoring. This could be hereditary or could be due to certain medications.
Sleeping posture and obesity, may cause snoring, so the best way to stop snoring is to lose weight. Alcohol consumption, especially before bedtime, increases airway obstruction and cause a higher probability for snoring. You should also avoid eating the following foods (known to increase the intensity of snoring) late in the evening: fried foods, heavy floury foods, excessive alcohol, processed foods and dairy products.
One of the things that contributes to snoring is excess mucous. If you can lessen the amount of mucous that builds up in the throat and nasal passages, you will free up the airways which can reduce or maybe even prevent someone from snoring altogether. One of the simplest ways to achieve this is by juicing.
