How to reduce my snoring.?

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)

Do you have a tummy? if yes try and reduce it your snoring will improve too. Check with a doctor and find out if you have a deviated nasal septum. If you do, get that corrected first. It is important that your nose is clear and not blocked. Also it helps if you sleep on your sides rather than on your back.
