Snoring occurs during sleep when the muscles of the airway relax too much during sleep causing a normally open airway to narrow and vibrate (creating noise) when air passes in and out of the soft pallet.
Snoring may also be helped by salt therapy or halotherapy. Inhaling the dry salt microparticles can help clear the airway passages and also reduce any swelling of the nasal mucosa and soft palate, which can contribute to snoring.
Halotherapy can help improve sinus drainage as well, which can reduce snoring. It is an all natural non-pharmaceutical, holistic approach to finding relief from snoring and better sleep.
