How To Reduce Snoring & Sleep Better

Snoring is very common and can disrupt the sleep of the snorer and his/her partner which can lead to fatigue throughout the day. Lets look at what causes snoring and some ways to prevent snoring and ensure many peaceful nights for you and your loved ones.

What causes snoring?

Snoring can be caused by your tongue, mouth, throat or airways in your nose vibrating as you breathe. This happens when these parts of your body relax as you sleep. The following may also increase the likelihood of being a snorer; 

• Being overweight
• Smoking
• Drinking too much alcohol
• Sleeping on your back


What is sleep apnoea?

Sleep apnoea is when the walls of the throat relax and narrow during sleep, interrupting normal breathing. This can disrupt sleep regularly and have a big impact on your quality of life.


How to prevent snoring?

The following may help reduce the likelihood of snoring;

• Try to lose weight if you are overweight
• Reduce alcohol consumption
• Sleep on your side
• Don't smoke

    At Phelans Pharmacy we now have a range of Anti-Snoring Devices to help you and your loved ones sleep peacefully at night.

    Anti Snoring Electronic Belt

    Anti-Snoring Belt Ireland Cork

    How the anti-snoring belt works; 

    The belt consists of an intelligent electronic learning device and a comfortable chest belt. The device emits a vibration that informs the user when he/she is sleeping on their back. When the user is alerted, he/she can turn on their side, stopping the vibration and the snoring. After a few nights, the side position will be adopted naturally.


    The soft, anti-snoring belt is worn around the chest or waist, on the body or over underwear. The device has 2 clips that allow it to be worn without a belt, directly on an undergarment. It is easy to use and has several adjustable vibration levels.
