Do anti-snoring pillows work?
An anti-snoring pillow may be one of several types of pillows to help minimise the chances of you snoring. This can mean you stop snoring completely or that your level of snoring is reduced dramatically. They work by supporting you to sleep on your side, which is the best position to avoid snoring.
You can use a stop snoring pillow in conjunction with other natural methods to help, too. Because smoking and alcohol consumption can increase your chances of snoring, cutting down on these before bed can really help.
A combined approach can be an effective way of reducing or stopping snoring completely. So in many cases, if you use your snoring pillow together with lifestyle changes, it will work to reduce or stop snoring completely.
How do anti-snoring pillows work?
Anti-snoring pillows work in a variety of ways, depending on the reason behind your snoring.
One of the major causes of snoring is your sleeping position. If you tend to sleep on your back, your tongue may drop backwards and block your airway. This, in turn, can make the tissues at the back of your throat vibrate when you breathe, causing the sound associated with snoring.
Anti-snoring pillows designed for back sleepers help to correctly align and support your spine, head and neck. The design means that your neck is raised to aid airflow and allow easy breathing. This reduces the vibration and noises you get with snoring.
Alternatively, a side-sleeping pillow may also help get you into a comfortable position to sleep on your side. This helps to keep your airways fully open, which means you are a lot less likely to snore.
Which pillow is best for snoring?
Even better, try a specially designed stop snoring pillow. This will give you the support you need if you are a back sleeper or encourage you to sleep on your side, which is the best position to stop snoring.
What is the best way to stop someone from snoring?
If you or your partner snore, rest assured that there are a variety of ways to stop snoring.
Some are simple lifestyle changes that are easy to make. These include losing weight if you are on the heavy side and avoiding smoking, alcohol and sedatives.
If your snoring is due to allergies that make breathing through your nose difficult, talk to your doctor about finding suitable medication.
You should also consult your doctor if you have a structural problem with your nose called a deviated septum. This is when the structure that separates the two sides of your nose internally isn’t aligned correctly. They may recommend surgery to correct this or other issues to do with your throat or mouth.
Finally, if you tend to sleep on your back, you can try a special pillow that supports you. Know that sleeping on your side means you are less likely to snore, so you could also try an anti-snoring pillow designed to get you comfortable while side sleeping.
Will I still snore if I sleep on my side?
Sleeping on your side is the recommended position if you want to minimise or avoid snoring. This stops the tongue from falling towards the back of the throat and obstructing your airway.
That’s why sleep experts recommend side sleeper pillows to get you in the optimum position for a good night’s sleep.
Where can I buy a sleep apnea pillow?
Pillows that promote side sleeping are ideal for anyone who suffers from sleep apnea, a condition where pauses in breathing occur because of obstruction to the airways. This is more likely to happen if you sleep on your back.
So for an effective sleep apnea pillow, look for one that helps you get into a comfy position on your side. Check out our range of side sleeper pillows to gently reposition you to get an uninterrupted night’s sleep.
