If You Can’t Stop Snoring, Natural Remedies Just Might Help You (and Your Partner)
Have you ever been kept up by your partner’s loud snoring? Better yet, have you ever been woken up by your own loud snoring? Despite what you may think, snoring is completely natural and almost everyone does it. We snore because our throats become very relaxed when we are in deep sleep and it starts to move. However, severe snoring can cause insomnia, disrupt our sleeping patterns and irritate the people around us.

Sometimes snoring occurs when a person is congested due to nasal or chest congestion. Peppermint oil can help to unclog the sinuses and relieve a sore throat. It usually acts as an expectorant in order to help your airways open, clear mucus, and reduce congestion. A few studies have shown that compounds found in peppermint oil have a lot of antimicrobial, antiviral and antioxidant properties which means that it can also fight infections in the respiratory tract.

Goldenseal is another treatment that can help with snoring. It can relieve congestion in your chest and the nasal passages. Goldenseal is mostly found in herbal remedies for allergies and colds due to its antibiotic and immune-boosting capabilities. Furthermore, some research suggests that medicinal plants like goldenseal can improve immune function by increasing antigen-specific antibody production making it an ideal natural remedy for bronchitis.
