Natural ways to stop snoring
Snoring affects many men and women in the UK.
Not only can it be irritating and uncomfortable, for many couples the problem is enough to force them to sleep is separate bedrooms.
This can be incredibly disruptive to a relationship - affecting intimacy, confidence and sex life.
It can make the person snoring feel embarrassed and guilty for something they have no control over. The partner may feel irritated and anxious about their lack of sleep.
There are some simple natural tips that can help stop snoring.
Changing your sleep position
Although it is difficult to change a lifetime habit of sleeping in a certain way, it is thought that sleep position has the biggest effect on the level of snoring.
Many people have found that sleeping on their side reduces the amount they snore - for the majority of individuals it completely stops them snoring.
Sleeping on your back is the main cause of snoring as the base of your tongue and soft palate move to the back of your mouth. This causes a vibration.
Although slim people can snore as well, people who are overweight are more likely to snore.
Of course the way to lose those extra pounds is by exercising more and eating more healthily.
A simple and effective exercise that helps you lose weight without the pain is yoga.
Avoid alcohol and tobacco
Both of these vices have been known to increase noise levels at bed time.
Alcohol in particular is a sedative which reduces the resting tone of the muscles in the back of your throat. When you’ve drank a few hours before sleeping, you are far more likely to snore.
Of course, many individuals love a bed time drink. Instead of reaching for the wine, try a relaxing herbal tea.
As well as stopping snoring, these drinks have been developed to treat and assist with a vast array of other conditions.

- Carrot Oil for Face Hi Praise, Carrot oil, which is a carrier oil does have a slight ability to protect skin from the sun. However, it does not clear sunburn from your face or any of the oils you have mentioned. Coconut oil, Aloe Vera or Calendula oil might help. You can also apply essential oils that help sooth sun burn with either jojoba oil or sweet almond oil. The best essential oils for this would be lavender or peppermint. Hope this helps.

- Shatavari benefits for WomenHi D, indeed there is conflicting information on whether Shatavari can be taken during pregnancy or not. Some studies showed that Shatavari can affect milk supply during lactation, and that Shatavari (Asparagus racemosus) has possible teratogenicity so it should be avoided in pregnancy. Other studies showed that Shatavari is an ingredient in most herbal teas which are recommended to be taken during pregnancy and breastfeeding. I would recommend that you consult your GP or a qualified herbalist who deals with pregnant women before taking anything, in case you are already taking some supplements/ drugs or herbs to help with your pregnancy.
