Nobody wants to cuddle up next to someone who is sawing logs all night; but those who have a problem with snoring need love too. Aside from undergoing invasive surgical procedures there are simpler ways to remedy the snoring problem.
For thousands of years people have been using herbs to maintain their health, cure common ailments, and create delicious recipes. Despite the plethora of pharmaceutical options available to the modern person, using one of these five herbal remedies to stop snoring can be just as effective and a whole lot safer.
This easy-to-find herb is one of the best to use when you want to stop snoring. Its mentholated properties actually work to open the airways, helping you and your partner experience a more tranquil night.
Simply place a few sprigs of peppermint into some filtered water to create an effective and natural snoring-reducing mouthwash. Gargle with this before bed to help the snoring cease, or use it throughout the night as you need to keep things under control. You can even chew on the peppermint herbs themselves if you want a more potent dose.
Another wonderfully useful herb to help stop snoring, spearmint is surprisingly effective at helping folks sleep quietly through the night. This tasty herb is used in recipes and can even be eaten directly and placed into pre-bedtime drinks.
Eating and drinking things with mentholated ingredients is a great way to prepare your body for a night of deep breathing and sleeping. Perhaps using some spearmint in your bedtime snack would be a good idea if you or your loved one has a problem with snoring.
Most everyone knows that eating spicy food effectively opens up your nasal passages; that is why spiced up foods make our noses run when we eat them. Ingesting foods that have been garnished with cayenne pepper might be effective for those who snore at night, but only if spicy foods do not cause other problems such as indigestion or heartburn.
This herb is easy to find, tastes great, and is highly versatile. Finding a way to use it to help yourself or your partner stop snoring is quite simple.
This useful herb is great for those who suffer from nighttime indigestion – a common cause of snoring. Sprinkling some sage on your food is one way to benefit from the healing properties of sage; but simply being able to smell it while you sleep may help you stop snoring and finally get a peaceful night’s rest.
Sage can be easily and safely burned before you go to bed to create a sleep-inducing atmosphere that promotes healthy rest. On top of that it smells heavenly and it can even help to reduce stress as well.
Although it is quite an uncommonly used herb, asthma weed is still very effective at treating snoring and the causes of it.
This aptly named herb is often used as an expectorant; and can be commonly seen used by those with epilepsy, diphtheria, tonsillitis, and asthma. Infused, it can be used to treat ophthalmic symptoms; and its tincture can cure certain skin diseases as well. Those who use asthma weed in any of its formulas can see its benefits in the form of reduced snoring.
Finding less invasive and natural remedies for you or your loved one’s snoring problems is easy when you know where to look. You do not have to subject yourself to surgical procedures or restless nights. Use one of these five herbal remedies to stop snoring and be on your way to a peaceful and quiet night of sleep.
