Are Tennis Balls a Snoring Remedy - Fact or Fiction?
Is your partners snoring keeping you up at night?
Well, you are not alone. Snoring is on the increase, year after year. Men and women alike. With no known cure for snoring, thousands of snorers and even more so their partners, have searched for a snoring solution that can give them a good nights’ sleep. So, is sewing tennis balls in pyjamas an old-fashioned remedy for snoring? Fact or Fiction?
THE ANSWER IS, INDEED, A FACT!
Sleeping with a tennis ball in your back is so uncomfortable that it forces you to change your sleeping position and lie on your side. The benefits definitely lie in favour of the snorers’ partner. They get to enjoy a peaceful nights’ sleep without having the irritation of prodding their snoring partner.
Sleeping on your back puts you in a prime position to snore. Your tongue and soft tissue relax, drop back and partially block the airway, causing that dreaded sound of snoring. However, if you sleep on your side, you have a better chance of keeping your airway free.
If you cannot get used to the idea of sleeping with a tennis ball stitched in your sleep shirt, there are other alternatives, which could fit your snoring lifestyle.
