Your New Bedtime Accessory: Salt Therapy for Snoring and Insomnia

It’s three in the morning and you somehow just can’t get your eyes to close. You’ve tried everything. A warm cup of tea, turning off your electronics, and some light reading. Nothing has worked. Just as sleep is starting to overcome you, you hear a loud snore from your upstairs neighbors. Grumbling, you throw a pillow over your head and try as much as you can to fall asleep. You already know your morning coffee will have a double espresso shot waiting for you.

Insomnia and snoring are two of the most common cases as to why people are losing sleep. Insomnia is the difficulty of falling asleep while snoring is an unpleasant loud sound that happens when your breathing is obstructed while you’re sleeping. Both cases leave the person feeling fatigued and frustrated, making it extremely hard to concentrate at work or at school. There are two types of cases for both snoring and insomnia. Insomnia has acute and chronic cases. Acute insomnia is very short term and the most common case of acute insomnia is when someone is feeling very stressed, like the night before an exam or job interview.  Chronic insomnia on the other hand is more complicated. Chronic insomnia is disordered sleep that happens at least three nights a week for three months. There are many reasons as to why someone can have chronic insomnia. Late work shifts, long term stress, and poor sleeping habits are just a few examples as to how someone could have chronic insomnia. For snorers, they’re put into two categories as well: mouth snorers and nasal snorers. Mouth snorers are usually the loudest since they snore with their mouth wide open while nasal snorers have a more congested sound to their snore since their nasal passages are blocked.

There aren’t many treatments for insomnia or snoring. A lot of insomnia patients try drinking warm milk with honey or decaffeinated tea before bed, in hopes it’ll relax the body and make it easier to fall asleep. Another common thought remedy is taking melatonin pills. Melatonin is a hormone made by the pineal gland in your body. It’s what helps humans fall asleep, which is why it’s become such a frequently used sleeping aid over the past three decades. But melatonin may not be the best aid to use for insomnia. The pills and supplements sold tend to have a very high dosage of melatonin, making you feel groggy and even more tired than before. Even children are taking it these days, which can be unsafe. As for snoring, a common remedy used is a mouthpiece. These mouthpieces position the jaw in a certain way, so the snoring comes to a halt. Imagine sleeping with this big device in your mouth for eight to ten hours.  It certainly gets uncomfortable at one point can become very painful for the jaw.  A safe and natural treatment that works for both snoring and insomnia is salt therapy.

Salt therapy is a non-invasive treatment that involves inhaling salt particles. These salt particles will start clearing the airways in the body, improving airflow as well.  For nasal snorers especially, the salt will attract water particles, making the mucus that’s congesting them moisten and easy to blow out. Common snorers also have more damaged and inflamed airways. Salt therapy acts as an anti-inflammatory agent and will aid in relieving the inflammation through the airways. As for insomnia, salt therapy provides the body a high level of negative ions. Negative ions are what cause the body to feel relaxed, refreshed, and improve overall mood. Inhaling these microscopic particles will make you feel like you’ve been transported to the beach instantly and make you fall asleep within minutes. When waking up in the morning, you’ll feel refreshed rather than cranky. Because of its non-invasiveness, salt therapy is a great option for children as well. With the body so relaxed, a deeper and sounder sleep will occur. This is a wonderful advantage for parents with children who wake up three or four times during the night. Salt therapy can resolve that problem. Both you and your little one will be able to sleep without any interruptions during the night.

What is snoring?

Snoring is the vibration of your respiratory parts that usually forms a very loud sound due to obstructed breathing while sleeping. In most cases, snoring becomes loud, unpleasant, and often leaves the person feeling insecure when it comes to sleeping next to a partner. It doesn’t help the other party either. It can leave both of you feeling exhausted and frustrated. Not only does snoring make it hard to get a good night’s sleep, people who snore are more irritable and have trouble concentrating. While snoring is very common, excessive snoring needs to be tended to. It can lead to more serious issues such as heart disease, increased blood pressure, and sleep apnea. Many people just accept snoring for the nuisance it is, but there is a very beneficial treatment to help prevent snoring. Salt therapy for snoring is one of the best options for this ongoing problem.

Stop snoring today with salt therapy!

A lot of people use mouthpieces that position the jaw in a certain way so the snoring stops. While they certainly help, they are often very uncomfortable and irritating to put in.  Salt therapy has become a favored treatment because it’s non-invasive, contains no side effects, and there is no added discomfort to the patient. There are many spas that offer this treatment, but salt therapy can even be done in your own bedroom with the purchase of a salt machine. The salt machine is a small and portable device that will regularly dispense microscopic salt particles, which are then inhaled deep into the lungs.  It clears the airways and improves airflow. Once exposed to salt therapy and doing it continuously, the respiratory system and the muscles in it begin to strengthen. When the muscles in the throat and mouth become stronger, it can restrict them from relaxing too much while sleeping. Since the muscles won’t relax as much, it can completely reduce and even eliminate the vibrations that cause the snoring.

Believe it or not, there are actually different types of snoring. Snorers are often put into two categories: mouth snorers and nasal snorers. While both snorers can benefit from doing salt therapy, nasal snorers are the ones who greatly benefit. Since their nasal passages are blocked, it’s almost impossible to breathe in through the nose, leaving the body no choice but to start breathing through the mouth, which then results in snoring.  Salt therapy can also help with this. Because the salt contains negative ions, it will attract the water particles to it. The thick mucus will moisten and thin out, making it easy to blow out.  Salt also contains anti-inflammatory elements. Swollen airways and nasal passages often are often painful to breathe through. Salt therapy will relieve the inflammation and make breathing easier once again.

After all the sleep you’ve been missing out on, salt therapy will also leave you feeling relaxed and rejuvenated. As previously mentioned, salt contains negative ions. Negative ions can usually only be found around places such as beaches and waterfalls. Breathing in these ions while you sleep will leave a relaxed effect on the body and have you waking up feeling refreshed instead of fatigued.  In addition to that, the negative ions also increase serotonin levels in the bloodstream. Serotonin is responsible for relieving stress, boosting energy, and improving overall mood. You’ll have a smile on your face even before you have your morning coffee!

While snoring is a very common thing, if it becomes excessive it can create problems. Health problems, relationship problems, problems that can easily vanish when try out salt therapy. This natural treatment will give you the sleep you deserve without it being uncomfortable. It will strengthen the muscles inside the airways, make nasal snorers less congested, and let your body unwind and rest, all while you’re sleeping. Because this treatment has no side effects, it’s safe and usable for all members in the household. It’s time to make snoring a problem of the past. Throw out those earplugs and try out salt therapy today!
