Onion, sage, and steam baths
Onions, sage, and steam baths all help reduce or stop snoring and can recover a peaceful night’s rest so you restore the energy needed for work and activities during each new day.
To take advantage of the benefits of onion, cut one up into large pieces and boil them for 15 minutes. Add a little brown sugar to the liquid and drink it as a tea. It’s a good idea to do this two hours before bedtime.
On the other hand, you can make a tea using sage leaves by boiling a few in water and drinking it an hour before going to bed.
Good breathing is essential to preventing snoring. An easy way to open up the airways is to use steam baths, by mixing a little eucalyptus oil with boiling water. Pour the water in a bowl and cover it with a towel, then rest your face on the towel and inhale the steam as if you were in a sauna. Continue this until the water cools.
All natural juices are also useful for treating a variety of health issues, including snoring. Fruits have properties that improve the well being of those who take advantage of them, and you should eat 5 servings per day along with vegetables. Drink juices before every meal to speed up your metabolism and ensure the proper function of your body. Here’s a recipe for a natural juice that’s good for you, in addition to helping to stop the snoring.
- 2 apples
- 2 carrots
- ¼ of a lemon and a little bit of ginger
Preparation is easy because all you need to do is blend the above ingredients with a little water, and drink the beverage several times a day for the best benefits.
What are the consequences of snoring for your health?
Snoring can cause:
- Increased dry mouth
- Disturbances in sleep patterns
- Headaches and irritability
To help eliminate snoring you can apply a saline solution in the nose to help activate breathing through the nasal passages. Mix water at room temperature with half a teaspoon of salt and a little baking soda to create this solution.
Another option is to make a salve using a mixture of olive oil and 50 grams of rue (or herb-of-grace). Put it in a bottle and let it ferment for 2 weeks. When it’s ready, apply it to each nostril as well as the chest and neck.
Furthermore, a mixture of eucalyptus and ginger can have positive results in reducing snoring. Boil a piece of chopped ginger root with some eucalyptus leaves in a cup of water for 5 minutes. Drink the water when it cools as a tea, and then consume two tablespoons of gel from the aloe plant. This remedy should be taken a half hour before going to bed.
Is it possible to avoid snoring?
To keep from snoring or to reduce it, you should avoid drinking too much alcohol or eating a lot of chocolate, and minimize your intake of fried or processed foods.
Nettle, mint, fennel, and valerian root also help decongest the nasal passages, which keeps you from having to open your mouth to breathe at night. If you carefully and consistently keep to the recipes we’ve presented here, you’re sure to see positive results when you go to bed because snoring causes suffering in the person who snores as well as their partner. So you’re not only improving your own well being, but that of your partner. Getting good rest fights irritability, fatigue, and other ailments that can increase stress levels.
