Have you ever snored so loudly that you actually woke yourself up in the night? I have, and it wasn’t until that day that I realized I really needed to sort out my snoring problem. My wife agreed, as I had kept her awake for many years. We went online and looked at some of the snoring and sleep apnea devices that were available from stores like Amazon.
I finally decided on the snoring chin strap, a simple head harness that would keep my mouth closed at night. I knew that I was at my worst when laying on my back, I tended to lie there breathing through my mouth, puffing, huffing, and whistling. I thought that if I could find some why to breathe naturally through my nose the snoring might stop. And it did.
When the chin strap arrived in the post I felt a little bit silly trying it on, but having worn it for a few days, I was so pleased that I got over my initial inhibitions. The results were almost miraculous. I went from a person who snored loudly and regularly every single night, to somebody who still grunted a little, but not even enough to wake up my wife. She commented that my snoring was nowhere near as loud, and far less regular, and all this for a product that cost under $30.
Many people go through their lives snoring, and seeing it as only a minor irritation, and not the serious health condition that it is. It can be closely linked with the more serious condition of sleep apnea, and I would recommend that you visit your doctor or medical practitioner if you believe you may be a sufferer. But for mild to moderate snoring and sleep apnea, these over-the-counter products can provide the relief.
Julian McDowell was a chronic snorer for many years. He used an anti snoring device called a chin strap with great effect. He has also reviewed a number of other anti-snoring devices, and finds the sleep apnea pillow a great solution for snorers who snore worse when lying on their backs.
