Snoring is disruptive both for the snorer and their partners. Night time noises are the result of disrupted breathing, with air causing tissues in the throat or windpipe to vibrate. There are many factors which can cause snoring. Excess weight is a big cause, along with sleeping position and even the way that the tissues between your windpipe and nose are naturally aligned. Add to this lifestyle factors including alcohol consumption and you will begin to understand that curing a snorer is a matter of finding out which individual factors are in play and then addressing each one.

Sleep Apnea is a more subtle condition, which will often occur in those who snore. What happens is that you stop breathing while asleep. Your body will react to this in good time, by waking you up and starting the breathing reflex once again. Some people report being aware of multiple wake-up phases, though many do not consciously notice them. It is this stop breathing-wake up-sleep again cycle which causes the problems. This affects the quality of your sleep, and may result in waking up feeling tired – and for many Apnea sufferers wondering why!

This is a complex subject area which I have divided into the causes and cures in the articles listed below. For those who suffer from their partner’s night time noises then I have an article on the steps you can take to address the issue right here. You will also find information on other night time activity like sleep-walking and talking in your sleep also listed here – along with practical information on devices like snoring masks and nose (hold open devices)
