Have you ever woken up to the sound of someone snoring heavily in their sleep? Or have you, yourself snored in your sleep to make everyone who knows you complain about your snoring or not wanting to sleep with you in the same room? Snoring is a common condition that affect if not a good number of people in our lives including ourselves. Snoring is caused when there is an obstruction of air flow through the mouth or nose. This obstruction can be due to having a chocked nose from colds, Bulky throat issues due to overweight and the kind of position a person sleeps.
Although there have been researches making a severe snoring a medically condition, one of the underling factor for a recent start in snoring is due to the way most people sleep. That is to say the pattern of how you sleep, or the way of sleeping cause people who don’t snore to start snoring. However, some people do snore, whether they sleep on their backs, stomach, left side or right side, and this can cause such a person to be depressed, especially if those around him or her let in on how bad their snoring is. Well the good news to people who snore, or those with partners who snore is that there is a body pillow to help stop that snoring.
The normal pillows that are just placed under our heads, mostly do not align as well enough during sleep, hence making us lay in a way that causes obstruction of air through the nose and hence result in breathing out through the mouth. Body pillows gives better alignment and comfortability during sleep, there by a good way in preventing snoring.
