2. Another way to stop snoring is to not consume any dairy products before bed. You will snore if you eat milk or yogurt products.

3. Consuming honey is another cure. You should consume a teaspoon of honey right before you go to bed. This is an effective cure that will help you.

4. Nasal drops are another way to help you stop snoring. The drops will help you open your nostrils, which will allow you to breathe in more air.

Exercises to Stop Snoring

There are two sets of exercises to stop snoring. The first are general fat burning exercises to lose weight over the whole body The reason for this is it will reduce the fatty tissue around the neck which helps keep the airway .open and relieve pressure on the diaphragm. Theres no point going into details about these exercises as there are thousands of web sites dedicated to this subject.

The exercises to stop snoring I want to concentrate on are to help strengthen the throat, tongue and jaw muscles to stop your air passage becoming blocked.

Facial exercises
Try pushing your tongue out as far as you can, hold for then relax. Next put your out tongue and try to touch your chin hold then relax and the third one of the set push your tongue out and try to touch your nose. Repeat the set of three 10 times. Do an exaggerated smile hold for 10 seconds, then relax. Do this as many times as you can (by the way do these exercises on your own or tell your family what you are up to so they don't call for psychiatric help!)

Voice Exercises
A great way to strengthen your throat is to use exercises that professional singers use:
Sing La-La-La-La at the top of your voice holding each La for 3 seconds repeat this 5 times. Focus on your neck and throat muscles when you do this. Then do the same thing singing Ka-Ka-Ka-Ka and finally end the set of 3 with Ma-Ma-Ma-Ma don't strain your muscles but concentrate on giving them a good workout.

Do these exercises twice a day, and if combined with a healthy lifestyle will go along way to giving you a much need peaceful sleep..

Popular Snoring Remedies

One simple remedy is to elevate your head with pillows or raise the head of your bed several inches. This reduces the chances of the throat muscle completely blocking your air passages when they relax in sleep. Sleep on your side, not on your back, which causes your tongue and soft palate to fall back, narrowing the airway.

Other lifestyle changes include exercising more, losing weight and abstaining from alcohol and smoking. You especially should not drink alcohol before going to sleep because alcohol relaxes your.Finally, you should avoid tranquilizers, sleeping pills, and antihistamines.

In addition to such so-called home cures, there are over-the-counter snoring remedies available, including anti-snoring pills, throat sprays, and nasal strips.
Anti-snoring pills contain natural plant enzymes and herbs that are said to prevent throat and nose tissue from swelling, resulting in a more open and smoother airflow that helps reduce snoring. Some popular brands are: Dr. Harris' Original Snore Formula, Sinus Buster, SnorEase, Snore Rx and Ysnore.
Throat sprays coat the soft tissues of the throat allowing the air to move more freely and lessening the noisy vibration. Some well known brands are Ayr Snore Relieving Throat Spray, D-Snore, Good Night Stop Snore, Helps Stop Snoring, and Silence.
