Snoring - 3 Best And Simple Exercises to Stop it!

Just like there are exercises to lose weight, there are simple exercises, which you can do to stop your snoring completely. Snoring is a common condition and it generally takes place more in men than women. It mostly affects individuals who are overweight and the condition gets worsened with age. Though it is not a serious condition, it has to be dealt as it affects the sleep of your sleeping partner. The main cause of snoring is an improper flow of air through the mouth or nose. 

The airflow to the nose is obstructed by factors like:

  1. Obesity
  2. Pregnancy
  3. Genetic factors
  4. Sinus Infection
  5. Congestion

How to Prevent Snoring:
It is very essential that prior attention is given to this condition before it turns out to be a serious problem. The self help  tips that can be used by individuals to stop snoring include proper exercising, losing weight, quitting smoking and not drinking alcohol as well as setting up an ideal sleeping pattern. There are devices available in the pharmaceutical stores like the mouth guard device which are specially designed to help stop snoring. There are medications also available that help to stop snoring and have good quality  sleep.

Amazing and Simple Exercises to Stop Snoring:
You can cure your snoring problem easily by practicing vocal exercises without the need of even going through a painful and expensive surgery.

  1. Singing: Singing is an excellent exercise that is very good for your vocal passage and that can cure the snoring problem. It is best that you start singing in a warm shower and the moist steam of the warm water would soothe your throat. The benefit of singing is that it tightens the muscles and it is an excellent and natural way that would cure your sleeping problem. You can practice singing at least 20 minutes in a day, and you would surely experience the difference.
  2. Yawning: The second simple exercise that can be done to stop snoring is yawning, which involves opening and closing of your mouth. The exercise done in a yawning motion would strengthen both the inner and outer neck muscles. It is very necessary that the mouth is opened widely, and this activity can be done anytime of the day.
  3. Chewing: The third exercise that is helpful to get relief from sleep disorders is chewing. You can fix your throat by chewing the tip of a pencil.  You don't have to bite the pencil, and you just need to fix your throat muscles to make certain that your airway is clear. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

He is regularly suffering from cough and cold problem, regarding his health issues we have discussed many doctors, but doctors are telling that he had allergic problem or Low immune system to resist Dust, Cold & smoke. As he comes touch with cold, smoke and dust, his nose begin discharged, split coming out of the mouth during sleeping, facing acute problem in breathing (nose block) then fever and cough had difficulties to him. If any medical treatment not given to him within 2 ? 3 days, then his position becomes critical. We had given him an antibiotic and anti allergic tablets as advised by doctors, but for three years, he is suffering same problem and doctors are telling as he will grow up, his immunity will improve as a result day by day his problem will cure. We have discussed with many Child specialists, ENT all doctors are telling as he grows up, his allergic problem will cure, but very difficult for a child to survive till 8 ? 9 years like this, as if he will not fit then his education will also affect because obviously when he go out then he has to face dust, smoke and pollution everything that all was beyond our control. So what to do, I am very worried about his health issues. So, please suggest a remedy to open his nose block so that at least he can breath easily during slip We hope your Excellency will look into this matter and suggest as deemed fit for a child health and future. Further, if you required any Diagnostics / reports then please let me know accordingly I will send you.

Please suggest remedy for sleeping snoring issues? There's very awkward situation.

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
Hi, thanks for your query. Snoring is a difficult symptoms to diagnose and treat. It occurs when air passes through a narrow passage from nose to lungs. Any pathology from the nose like deviated septum, polyp, tumour, naso pharyngeal pathology like tumour, pharyngeal pathology like huge tonsils, huge tongue, small mentum etc. Can cause it. Therefore routine ENT examination should be done first. Investigation advised is dynamic MRI to detect the site of obstruction. Sleep study would help us detect the apnea hyperapnea index. Treatment aspect may be surgical correction of the obstructive pathology or non surgical treatment with C APP machine. All details, clinical examination, investigation, treatment needs medical assistance. Hope my answers have helped you. Thanks.

Reasons for Sore Throat in Hindi - गले में खराश के कारण

गले के संक्रमण या खराश की समस्या से आजकल सभी परेशान हैं. जब भी आपको 38 डीग्री सेंटीग्रेट से अधिक बुखार महसूस हो, गले या गर्दन में सूजन हो, निगलने में परेशानी हो या पेट दर्द जैसी समस्या हो तो समझिए कि आपके गले में खराश है. गले में संक्रमण या खराश के कई कारण हो सकते हैं जैसे प्रदूषित हवा, बदलता मौसम, अत्यधिक ठन्डे पदार्थों का सेवन, प्रतिकूल खान-पान आदि. इसलिए ये जरुरी है कि आप अपने गले का ख्याल रखें. इसके लिए इसके कारणों को जानना आवश्यक है. आइए गले में खराश के कारणों को विस्तारपूर्वक जानें.
गले में खराश के कारण
1. सर्दी-जुकाम

गले में खराश का मुख्य कारण है सर्दी जुकाम, एलर्जी और वायरल इन्फेक्शन आदि होता है. कई बार संक्रमित गले के लिए सर्दी-जुकाम भी जिम्मेदार होता है. जब भी आपको सर्दी-जुकाम और इस तरह की समस्या उत्पन्न ह हो तो समझिए कि गले में खराश भी होगी.
2. मोनो न्यूक्लोसिस
मोनो न्युक्लोसिस एक तरह का वाइरल इन्फेक्शन है जिसमें गले में खराश उत्पन्न हो जाती है. ये वायरस लार के द्वारा फैलता है इसलिए इसको ”किसिंग डिज़ीज” भी कहा जाता है. इससे प्रभावित व्यक्ति के छींकने या खांसने से भी ये दूसरे व्यक्ति को हो सकता है. इस बीमारी के लक्षण गले में खराश के अलावा बुखार , सिरदर्द , थकान आदि हो सकते है. ये एक डेढ़ महीने में अपने आप ठीक हो जाते है. किसी भी सार्वजनिक जगहों जैसे कि स्कूल आदि में इसके होने की सम्भावना अधिक होती है.
3. मीज़ल्स के कारण
मीजल्स में आपके गले में खराश, बुखार, कफ़, लाल आँखें, मांसपेशियों में दर्द, नाक बहना और मुँह में सफ़ेद धब्बे हो सकते हैं. पूरे शरीर पर लाल लाल दाने होना इसकी विशेष पहचान है. कई लोग इसे छोटी माता भी कहते हैं. ऐसे मामलों में आपको अन्धविश्वास में न पड़कर किसी चिकित्सक से परामर्श लेना चाहिए. यह छीकने , खांसने आदि से फैलती है. इसके वायरस कई घंटे तक किसी सतह पर जीवित पड़े होते है. यहाँ से किसी दूसरे को आसानी से लग सकते है. एक दूसरे के झूठे गिलास में पानी पीने से या एक ही बर्तन में खाना खाने से दूसरे को हो सकता है.
4. विभिन्न एलर्जी
कई प्रकार के अलग-अलग एलर्जी में भी इस तरह की परेशानी देखने को मिल सकती है. इसमें आपको अचानक से बुखार आ जाना, गले में बहुत खराश, गले में सफ़ेद धब्बे, सिरदर्द, सर्दी लगना, भूख बंद होना, निगलने में परेशानी जैसी समस्याएं उत्पन्न हो सकती हैं. इससे पीड़ित व्यक्ति स्ट्रेप थ्रोट से परेशान रहता है. ये छींकने से खांसने से ये फ़ैल सकता है.
5. डिप्थीरिया
डिप्थीरिया जैसी बीमारियों के कारण भी गले में सक्रमण या खराश की परेशानी उत्पन्न हो सकती है. इसके अलावा हूपिंग कफ के कारण गले में खराश और तेज खांसी होती है जो 2 महीने तक रह सकती है. ऐसी बीमारियों से बचने का उपाय करके आप इससे निपट सकते हैं.
6. मांसपेशियों में खिंचाव
मांसपेशियों में खिंचाव के कारण भी गले में खराश या संक्रमण की समस्याएं देखी जाती हैं. जब भी आपको मांसपेशियों में खिंचाव महसूस हो तो आपको समझना चाहिए कि गले में खराश भी हो सकती है.

Blood comes from my nose while sneezing! Is this due to excessive smoking! What to do?

PGFCP, PGDEMS, Bachelor Of Ayurvedic Medicine And Surgery
Ayurveda, Satara
DEAR Lybrate USER. This problem is due to increased amount of abnormal pitta dosha in a rakta dhatu. So that suddha rakta converted into dushit rakta. And because of this strength of capillaries in the nose decreases and they rupture consequently bleeding occurs.. You have to follow some basic things, so that you get better results in a short period of time . 1) take solid diet two times in a day and liquid diet two times in a day . 2) drink only 100-150 ml of lukewarm water during meals . 3) don’t drink water before meal for one hour and one hour after meal 5) avoid oily, spicy, junk, fermented and stale foods 6) avoid late night sleeping habits. 7) avoid day time sleeping. A) take 50 ml of triphala juice and 15 ml of honey along with 50 ml of lukewarm water early in the morning and at night before sleep. Along with this take 2-2 tablets of RAKTASTAMBHAK VATI (dhootpapeshwar company. B) take 2-2 tablets of AAROGYAWARDHINI VATI and CHANDRAPRABHA VATI after meals. C) instill 4-4 drops of ALMOND tail in each nostrils two times in a day. Do all these things for 7 days. This formulation is effective.

How to get rid from sinus problem? My nose is paining from behind. Any remedies medic?

MD, BHMS
Homeopath, Mumbai
Reccurrent to chronic sinusitis is a resistant problem and requires a multidisciplinary approach following tips will be useful. Plain steam inhalation regularly once a day in morning. Avoid exposure to dust and allergens by covering your nose whenever required. Try jal neti at least twice a week it helps draining the sinuses, but first learn it from an yoga expert. Kapalbhati is beneficial. Take homeopathy medicine kali bichromicum 30 4 pills twice a day for a month and skookum chuk 30 4 pills twice a day for a month. Let me know the changes,
