Snoring is an unacceptable noise when a person is lying down sleeping and occurs most frequently when lying on the back. When the soft palate in the throat closes down, it causes a vibration and the snoring noise. The tissue is too soft; this is one of many theories. Modern medicine tries to stop snoring with surgery, but is not always successful.
From the natural perspective, snoring is caused by weak connective tissue that can be helped by natural therapies. Snoring may come from excess mucus, allergies and other factors such as weight problems. Poor digestion may also contribute to snoring. Thus, eliminate tobacco, alcohol, coffee, black tea, soda and dairy products.
