What Causes Snoring?

When someone falls asleep, the muscles within their throat start to relax. As they inhale, the incoming air may cause the relaxed tissues to vibrate, causing a snoring noise. So, why do some people snore more than others? There are numerous potential causes of snoring, including:

What Causes Restless Leg Syndrome?

Researchers are still working to determine the exact cause of restless leg syndrome, although studies suggest it may be related to an imbalance of dopamine, a neurotransmitter that helps control movement. In some cases, restless leg syndrome can be inherited, and it may also be associated with conditions such as:

  • Obstructive sleep apnea
  • A deviated septum
  • The anatomy of the mouth (for example, having an elongated uvula or a low and thick soft palate)
  • Having allergies or a cold
  • Being overly tired
  • Lying face upwards while sleeping
  • Consuming alcoholic beverages close to bedtime
  • Being overweight

How to Stop Snoring

If you are wondering how to stop snoring naturally, you are in luck—there are various lifestyle changes you can make to help avoid this problem. You may want to try:

  • Maintaining a regular sleep schedule to avoid fatigue
  • Sleeping on your side
  • Raising the head of your bed
  • Wearing nasal strips while sleeping
  • Losing excess weight
  • Not drinking alcohol before going to sleep
  • Quitting smoking
  • Treating any nasal congestion that you may be experiencing

If these do not provide you with sufficient relief—or if you are concerned that you might have sleep apnea—you should consult with an experienced medical provider like the ones at West Coast Pulmonary & Sleep Disorders Center. Depending on your specific condition, they may recommend one or more of the following snoring treatments:

  • Wearing an oral appliance
  • Using a continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) machine
  • Undergoing snoring surgery
