Snoring – Symptoms, Causes and Home Remedies

Posted by Health & Beauty Expert on

Snoring is sleep associated issue in which a sound follows due to obstructed air movement during breathing while sleeping. The sound could be from soft to loud and is a disturbing act for the sufferer or people around. Researchers however, say that snoring is another complex aspect of sleep deprivation.

Snoring Causes:

  • During sleep, muscles in the mouth relax
  • At times, the tongue falls back
  • This obstructs the passage of air which leads to snoring
  • External factors which cause snoring are:

   o Physical exertion

   o Consuming alcohol

   o Certain medicines

Natural Home Remedy Using Clarified Butter or Brahmi Oil:

  1. Put 2 drops lukewarm clarified butter in each nostril
  2. Do this once every morning and every night at bedtime
  3. Brahmi oil, a common ayurvedic herb, can be used instead of clarified butter

Natural Home Remedy Using Cardamom Powder:

  1. Take 1 glass warm water
  2. Crush some cardamom seeds to get ½ tsp cardamom powder
  3. Add it to the water
  4. Mix well
  5. Consume every day at bedtime

Natural Home Remedy Using Milk and Turmeric Powder:

  1. Take 1 cup warm milk
  2. Add 2 tsp turmeric powder
  3. Consume every day at bedtime


  • Do not lie on your back as it increases the chances of your tongue falling back
  • Elevate your head by 4-5 inches as it eases breathing and prevents tongue from rolling back. You may use cushions for this
  • Lie sideways
  • Avoid smoking since it leads to swelling and blockage of airways
  • Avoid alcohol since it causes the muscles to relax
