What Type of Snorer Are You?
Choosing the right treatment to solve your snoring problem means knowing a little about why you snore, how you snore and what makes your snoring worse. Let us help you understand what is going on and how snoring relief aids help you treat the cause of your snoring.
Snoring might seem to you like the problem itself. But really, it is only the most obvious symptom of a much more serious underlying problem. The root cause of snoring is ‘sleep disordered breathing’. The only effective way to stop your snoring is to treat the root cause.
Regular snoring can be very loud with more impact on the sleep of your partner than on yours. The main cause of this type of snoring is dehydration and relaxed airways that collapse in on themselves when you sleep. This allows the soft lining of the airways to vibrate causing the rasping sound of snoring.
Allergy, Cold and Blocked Nose Snoring
A blocked nose, cold or allergy and make you snore at certain times of the year. Allergic reactions to dust, pollen, animal material or a virus causes nasal congestion that restricts airflow through the nasal passages. Congestion can cause you to breathe your mouth drying your throat and increasing the vibrations that lead to snoring.
Snoring caused by interrupted breathing whilst sleeping
If you are suffering daytime tiredness or sleepiness during the day, or if your loud and sudden snoring frequently wakes your partner, you might be suffering the sleep related breathing disorder, sleep apnoea. The most common form of sleep apnoea, obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA), is caused when lack of muscle tone in the upper airway allows it to collapse, or when the soft palate at the back of the throat partially or fully closes the airway. If you experience any of these symptoms your doctor will be able to talk to you about the available treatments.
Seasonal, occasional or now-and-again snoring
Some snoring is difficult to label or tie down to a particular time or cause. It might be you only snore when you have got a cold or had too good a night out, sleep in a strange bed or place. There might be a number of factors causing your snoring, but they are probably all made worse by nasal congestion and dryness in your throat.

Snoring: It’s Not Me It’s Definitely You, And Your Problem!
Problem snoring is easily solved when both halves of a couple act as one and this is the best way forward. However, the nightly snoring of one half of a bed-sharing couple can all too easily become ‘someone else’s problem’ an SEP. For the snorer, who might well sleep through the whole night undisturbed, it is not a problem for them. While for the non-sleeping, non-snorer, their partner’s snoring may disturb them but is not their problem to solve either.
A double SEP, and they are both wrong. That’s because, like every problem in a relationship, snoring is a shared problem that won’t get sorted until both partners see it that way.
If you have been there, then your sympathy might be with the sleep deprived non-snorer. But you have to feel something for the partner who snores unaware. Snorers are not encouraged to admit they snore; and who can blame them? Snorers get such bad press. The media portrays snorers as the worst combination of old, lazy and ignorant. Yet the truth is that more than half of us do snore.
What most snorers do not realise is the damage snoring could be doing to their own health, even while they sleep on regardless. Snoring is a symptom of sleep disordered breathing. This could be caused by anything from a seasonal or persistent allergy – such as hay fever or a reaction to feather pillows, to sleep apnoea – when normal breathing temporarily ceases entirely. Interruptions in sleep time breathing cause oxygen starvation. Researchers are increasingly convinced that repeat events of oxygen starvation increase your risk of serious diseases including high blood pressure, heart failure, type 2 diabetes, stroke and dementia.
The health of one partner in a relationship is quite definitely not an SEP. What’s more, the sleep deprivation inflicted on the non-snoring partner can have similar long-term health implications for the non-snorer.
So what can be done?
Well, maybe the first step is for each partner to set aside their own interests and make the wellbeing of the other their primary concern. The non-snorer might help the snorer counter the health risks of persistent oxygen deprivation by creating a more comfortable, allergy free sleeping environment. They might discuss their concerns over possible sleep apnoea or research products for the relief of sleep disordered breathing. The snorer might try to understand the impact of sleep deprivation on their non-snoring partner. Listen to them – stories of tiredness and irritability at work, fears over their career and even sleepiness when driving. Do not risk their health through an avoidable lack of sleep. Take the lead in trialling products to help you both find the healthy, restorative night-time sleep you both need to be at your daytime best.
Snoring is a particularly difficult one for couples because it happens when neither partner is best placed to help the other. The problem that occurs at night, is best sought out in the day. Just remember, there is no SEP in a strong relationship, unless it stands for ‘sharing every problem’.
Everyone should check their critical measurements to find out if their weight is impacting their efforts to stop snoring or is in fact making the problem worse!
Overweight and obesity is measured on a scale called the Body Mass Index (BMI). A measurement of fat stored in your body. If you have a high BMI it definitely will not help!
Excess fat puts pressure on your body’s system when you sleep. Fat around your neck causes the airways of your nose and throat to collapse, constricting the airways. The extra effort just to keep breathing causes the side of your airways to rub harshly together, making the sound we know as snoring.
Your collar size is also an indicator. Research shows that women with a collar size of more than 16 inches and men with a neck size of more than 17 inches are more likely to suffer the more serious snoring disorder called Obstructive Sleep Apnoea (OSA). OSA is being linked to many serious long term diseases including heart attack, stroke, diabetes and dementia.
Getting close to a normal range BMI is the one top tip from the NHS to stop snoring. Anything that helps you to keep you breathing freely and easily whilst you sleep will help relieve your snoring problem. Snoreeze can help.

Snoring and nasal congestion – what is nasal congestion?
‘If only I could breathe through my nose, I would stop snoring now!’
How many times have you thought that? Blowing your nose is like trying to force your way through heavy traffic by driving closer to the car in front. It just makes congestion worse.
That is because the amount of catarrh in your nose, is only half of the congestion problem.
Nasal congestion causes snoring – Snoring worsens nasal congestion
It is a vicious circle. Snoring is the sound of your body struggling to force air through too narrow airways. Your narrowed airways collapse inwards with a loud rasping snore and become dry, sore and swollen. Your body tries to protect the dry and inflamed membranes by over-producing the thick, sticky substance you recognise as catarrh.
Heavy catarrh plus narrowed airways make congestion. A cold, hay fever or other allergy will make that congestion worse and make you snore even more.
Opening your airways eases nasal congestion and relieve snoring
Snoreeze natural ingredients are formulated to ease congestion, relieve the discomfort of dry soreness by helping you breathe freely and easily through open airways.
Natural peppermint extracts, menthols and eucalyptus oils in Snoreeze snoring relief oral strips, nasal and throat sprays reduce inflammation, soothe dry soreness and ease nasal congestion.
Break the vicious circle of nasal congestion and problem snoring. Breathe more easily, rest more easily and snore less with Snoreeze.
Fast facts to help you stop snoring!
How much you snore has a lot to do with your age, sex, weight, health and fitness. Even if you feel everything is against you, there is still plenty of help around to end your snoring problem.
Snoring is the sound of your sleep-disordered breathing. Snoring happens when all these factors conspire to block the airways at the back of your nose and throat. Nightly snoring is proof that your body needs help to break through this blockage.
Factors that make your snoring worse
Age: As you get older, the muscles that should hold your airways open whilst you sleep get weaker. With weaker muscle tone, the soft skin at the back of your throat is more prone to collapsing into your airways.
Sex: Problem snoring is a factor of life for 1 in 3 men and 1 in 10 women. By the time you have reached 60, you have a 50% chance of problem snoring if you are male and a 30% chance if you are female.
Weight: Men especially tend to put on weight around their neck and chest. Extra weight puts extra pressure on tired airways causing them to collapse. If your collar size is 16 inches or more, you are more likely to need help to stop snoring.
Your unique features: Physical obstructions in the mouth and nose can make for difficulty breathing and can cause snoring. If you feel there might be a bodily reason behind your snoring, you should visit your doctor.
Fitness: Muscle tone is what keeps your airways open whilst you sleep. Keeping fit tones up all your muscles and improves the way your body gets vital oxygen to your brain and other organs whilst you sleep.
Health: Loud and sudden snoring is a symptom often associated with the medical condition, sleep apnoea*.

Stopping snoring may also help you to reduce your Alzheimer’s risk
What is Alzheimer’s Disease?
Put simply, Alzheimer’s is the early death of brain cells. This leads to fewer and fewer nerve connections between the surviving brain cells. For a properly functioning brain, the number of nerve connections are just as important as the number of living cells.
Losing more and more connections leads to increasing memory loss and a decline in mental powers of reasoning. Scientists are still trying to discover what causes this loss.
One area of growing interest is the role of ‘hypoxia’ in Alzheimer’s Disease. Hypoxia simply means oxygen starvation. Researchers into dementia are becoming more and more convinced that oxygen starvation is a powerful driver behind the development of Alzheimer’s.
Snoring is a sign of sleep related breathing interruptions and Hypoxia
Snoring is the sound of difficulty in breathing. Muscles that normally keep open the airways of the nose and throat relax during sleep. Unsupported by muscle tone, the lining of these airways collapse blocking them for up to several seconds many times a night.
Blocked airways cause oxygen starvation. The brain tries to turn the oxygen on again by forcing deeper breaths. Sudden breaths rattle through the obstructed airways causing loud, sometimes explosive, bursts of snoring.
The most severe form is snoring is a symptom of Obstructive Sleep Apnoea (OSA). OSA suffers can snore loud enough to wake anyone sharing a bed, without waking themselves.
OSA is a response to on-going oxygen starvation. To stop snoring means finding a way to keep those airways open. This is the first step towards preventing night-time oxygen starvation and protecting yourself against Alzheimer’s.
Stop snoring, fight Hypoxia and reduce Alzheimer’s risk
Anything that helps you breathe freely and easily whilst you sleep will help relieve your snoring problems. Keeping your sleep area free of allergens like pollen, dust or pet hairs and making sure you have enough ventilation is a good start. Good pillow-support for your neck and head also helps.

Your partner’s snoring might not be bad enough to break your relationship but if you have noticed it, that’s an admission it is putting it under strain.
If your partner is waking you several times a night, it is not just your relationship that is under strain but your health too!
Sleep disruption and snoring is more common among sufferers of many serious conditions including dementia, heart disease, diabetes and obesity.
Snorers suffer breathing disruption, which robs their brains of its oxygen supply. Oxygen starvation increases a snorer’s risk of serious illness, but it is not only the snorer who suffers. The same diseases linked to sleep disordered breathing are also linked to sleep disruption caused by a snoring partner.
People who snore, or have their sleep disrupted by snoring, also tend to fare less well in daytime activities. People with poor sleep patterns and disordered breathing are more likely to report feelings of irritability, an inability to concentrate and reduced problem solving skills. They also tend to suffer daytime sleepiness, increasingly linked to cases of dangerous driving.
