Snoring may be a minor nuisance or a serious health risk or relationship breaker. In this article you will learn about some of the more common snoring causes and snoring rememdies.

Snoring may be as little as an occasional rumble to a consistent hair-raising thunder show.

You might think of snoring as a mere nuisance, but, in many cases, it is more. Snoring can have both social and health ramifications. So, if you snore, there is every reason for you to want to stop.

When you snore, you affect not only your sleep but the sleep of your sleeping partner as well. Research shows that when you snore, you wake your sleeping partner more than twenty times an hour, which severely cuts into their restfulness. In many cases, partners of snorers are forced to sleep in separate rooms. Sleeping separately creates lack of intimacy and strains the relationship. This alone should motivate snorers to seek help.
