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!
