Undeniably, loud snoring is an annoying symptom – both for the snorer and the people who are subjected to it. Snoring occurs when there’s an obstruction in your airway that causes the tissue in your throat to rattle when you breathe. This rattling sound, which we hear as snoring, may vary from a soft purr to a loud roar.

And yet loud snoring may be relieved by one or more simple home remedies. For example, if you are overweight, you can learn how to stop snoring naturally by managing and changing your diet to lose weight. Extra pounds put extra pressure on your neck, which may cause congestion in your breathing passage. So, do follow a healthy diet and lifestyle. Below is a list of some foods that may help reduce airway congestion and help you stop snoring natrually:

  • Citrus
  • Horse radish
  • Mustard
  • Onions, garlic, scallions and leeks
  • Lobster
  • Pears
  • Thyme

These foods will not only help reduce breathing congestion, but are sure to improve your overall health and well-being.

Avoid the following foods, which have shown to contribute to mucus build-up and breathing congestion:

  • Wheat, soy and corn
  • Dairy and eggs
  • Baked goods, such as pizza, cookies and bagels
  • Processed cheese
  • Fried foods
  • Refined oils and fats
  • Sugar

Another simple way to stop snoring naturally or at least reduce the intensity of your snoring is to change your sleep position from sleeping on your back to sleeping on your side. Sleeping on your back causes your tongue to fall backward and obstruct your wind-pipe and increases the vibration of your uvula (which causes the sound of your snoring).

So, try these simple home remedies of how to stop snoring naturally. You may be pleasantly surprised, they may actually help.
