If you suffer from snoring, know that you are not alone! Roughly 90 million Americans share this problem. Snoring can be the butt of many jokes especially in the world of clichéd sitcoms but it’s serious business. I was not surprised when I read that snoring can create a real problem in a marriage. Back when I used to snore, not only was I robbed of a good night’s sleep but so was my poor wife!
Not only is snoring unpleasant, it can also be very dangerous and could potentially lead to heart disease. Snoring can cause what is called obstructive sleep apnea, which completely shuts your airway preventing your vital organs from getting the blood it needs. This can cause irregular heart rhythms.
Of course there are many over the counter “cures” with often-unfamiliar ingredients. None of these have worked for me or for the many people that I have spoken to. In fact, they usually have their share of side effects.
Weight loss is said to help (not that skinny people don’t snore) but that’s only if your snoring problems started after gaining weight. If that’s the case then chances are that by losing the weight, the snoring issue will take care of itself. However, it’s easier said than done; losing weight takes time and a lot of effort.
Being that sleep is so important to my body, I searched for a quick and natural solution that is safe and actually WORKS!
Without a doubt what worked for me was (drumroll please) a simple Memory Pillow! Did you ever think that a pillow could solve your snoring problem? What I also found is that since the pillow cover is washable and removable, you can further avoid the dust and allergens that also cause congestion and snoring. By making it easy to wash, you get a pillow that not only helps against snoring but also is wonderfully beneficial for those suffering from allergies.
What made it work against my snoring problem is that the memory part of the pillow shapes and creates a mold similar to your neck. This gives your neck support while straightening it out thereby allowing you to breathe much easier while you sleep.
Now, I cannot promise you that it will work for you as it worked for me, but with the low cost of this pillow it is definitely worth the try. I have since purchased two of these from CozyArray.com since I was thinking about giving one to my wife and one for myself, but I ended up using both (just ordered another one for her). It had a natural smell when I got mine, which concerned me at first, but it is just the natural bamboo rayon that has this scent. After washing and drying it just once, it smelled wonderfully. Neither my wife nor I could ever have thought we’d be so grateful for a pillow!
