While it may seem that many snorers ignore their snoring problem and are not seeking help or treatment, the internet reveals that a lot of snorers are actually concerned and are trying to find solutions. It has been found that snoring or snoring treatments or remedies are some very popular keywords people search for.
If you’re one of those people who search for solutions on the internet then you must already know the various options you have out there. From the most natural remedies like lifestyle changes, there are anti-snoring products like mouthguards or mouthpieces, CPAP, anti-snoring pillows, chin straps, and so on.
But what if there’s a simpler solution that doesn’t cost a penny? Something like an exercise, perhaps? Well, current studies have found that there are certain exercises you can do to stop primary snoring or mild OSA. These exercises, however, may not be helpful if you have a severe condition and it’s still best and recommended to consult your doctor especially if you have sleep apnea.
The exercises that have been found to help are actually tongue exercises like pushing the tip of your tongue against the roof of your mouth and then sliding your tongue backward. You can also elevate the back of the roof of your mouth and uvula while saying ‘A’ or ” “ei”. Another tongue exercise is to push the back of your tongue against the floor of your mouth and at the same time keeping the tip of your tongue in contact with your bottom, front teeth.
These are just some tongue exercises that have been found to help reduce snoring in some people. There’s no harm in trying any of these and you don’t have to buy anything so you can try them out and see if they work for you. If you haven’t tried anything yet, then start by leading a healthy lifestyle.
