Throughout time and technology there have been hundreds of methods that have been devised to reduce the snoring that occurs through the night, to something as simple as propping pillows to sleep on the side and ease air flow, to sleeping with a ball attached to the back to ensure that the individual is unable to roll on to their back.
Here are some of the common methods that can help to reduce snoring effectively:
1. Change your sleeping position. There are many experts that recommend avoiding sleeping on the back if snoring is a problem. Changing the sleeping position can help to increase the ease of airflow that can occur through the nose, mouth and to the lungs.
