Pillow for Snoring

If you or your spouse snores, you should be concerned. Snoring is not just an irritating habit -- it can also be damaging to your physical and mental health. In addition, when one partner snores, it can put a strain on the relationship. But before choosing expensive therapies or surgery, be sure to try something much simpler  – the therapeutic cervical pillow.
Most of us have been sleeping on rectangular bed pillows all of our lives. Yet the head, neck, and shoulders are curved. Why should we use flat pillows with straight lines and corners? These regular "bed” pillows may look good for decorating purposes, but they were not designed to support the head and spine properly. Studies have shown that switching to a cylindrical pillow can help to significantly reduce snoring.

Why You Snore

The causes of snoring include factors such as:
  • Mouth anatomy, including enlarged tonsils and adenoids, elongated uvula, low soft palate, etc
  • Obesity
  • Smoking
  • Alcohol consumption
  • Nasal congestion
Many of these factors result in narrowing of the airways, a primary cause of snoring. "Wet” snoring includes a gurgle, and is evidence that the sinuses are not draining properly. "Dry” snoring is usually an indication that the soft palate or tongue is enlarged, that there is excess fatty tissue, or that the uvula is elongated.
It’s estimated that close to 45% of us snore occasionally, so it’s often not seen as anything to worry about. But snoring cuts off the air to the lungs, and this restricts the amount of oxygen going to the brain. The brain reacts by having the heart pump harder in order to get the oxygen it needs, which in turn elevates blood pressure.
Snoring also stops both the snorer and his/her partner from reaching the deep sleep stage. This leads to sleep deprivation, which has many effects, including lack of concentration and attention, drowsiness, impaired memory and physical performance, increased sensitivity to pain, and irritability. Over time, lack of REM sleep can lead to serious health problems like heart disease and diabetes.
As well, snoring can cause resentment in a partner. Many times the spouse of a snorer will begin retreating to the couch in hopes of getting a decent night’s sleep. This soon becomes the norm, and partners grow apart due to lack of intimacy.

Therapeutic Pillows Align Body

While there are some problems that require surgery or medical intervention, the vast majority of snoring issues can be alleviated by opening up the air passageways. This can be achieved by giving the head and neck proper support.
A custom-sized therapeutic cervical pillow fits and supports the natural neck curve, which allows the neck muscles to stretch gently. Spaces between the vertebrae can then open up. In this position, the tongue and the lower jaw are brought forward. Nasal passages open, allowing free flow of air through the passages at the back of the mouth and nose. Increased space means that there is no vibration where the tongue and upper throat meet the soft palate and uvula during breathing.
