Has anyone stopped snoring after getting your metabolism revved up? I’m really hoping…this doesn’t help my marriage.February 26, 2014 at 11:05 pm #15430ChristinamParticipant
My husband snores a bit when he eats dairy. And it goes away when he stops. Not sure if that helps. Good luck!February 28, 2014 at 7:13 pm #15489
thank you!February 28, 2014 at 7:24 pm #15491ThomasSeayModeratorFebruary 28, 2014 at 8:00 pm #15493
I have, thank you! It did not work. I also use a reflexology ring on my pinkie, which helps a little.
I even bought a didgeridoo, which is just WEIRD. I don’t enjoy the sound it makes and as a musician, I don’t enjoy playing it enough to do it long enough to see any benefit. I should probably try again.
Hoping once my metabolism revs up that it will disappear on its own.March 3, 2014 at 3:04 am #15646ErinElizabethParticipant
For my husband and I snoring is pretty directly related to our weight. His snoring disappears when his weight goes down and now, for the first time (excepting colds) I snore and it started when my weight went up. My husband has pretty low temps and isn’t eating for heat while I’m gaining weight while EFH and my temps have improved drastically. So with this sample of two at least, improving metabolism won’t necessarily reduce snoring.March 3, 2014 at 10:15 am #15647ChristinamParticipant
I’ve also known of people who are heavy and snore. But my mom is a mini mouse and she snores like a bear! I hope I never start because I really like sleeping in one room with my hubby.March 3, 2014 at 1:29 pm #15653
ErinElizabeth, that is fascinating. How long have you been doing EFH?
Christinam, wow. I hope Not to be like your mom. :-)April 23, 2014 at 6:26 pm #16212prancieParticipant
I have found snoring relief by taping my mouth shut. I found some gentle bandage tape too so it does not get so sticky. Took about a week to get used to (would still wake myself up every now and then trying to breath through my mouth, but that went away) and now I wouldn’t sleep any other way.April 23, 2014 at 6:54 pm #16213
I’m tempted to try that! Thanks! Does it leave a mark on your face in the morning?April 28, 2014 at 5:58 pm #16274prancieParticipant
I have not found that it leaves a mark. If you use really sticky tape it can leave stickiness, but that wears off after a little bit. The best way to resolve that seems to be moisturizer (i tried nail polish remover, alcohol) you don’t have to tape your whole mouth, you can just tape the middle. Whatever you like best. I found gentle post-surgery paper tape that works really well, doesn’t leave residue and comes off easy.
Tell me how it works for you, I’d love to know if it works for other people. After trying it I can’t figure out why it’s not super-common. My husband tells me sometimes I snore a little through my nose, but nothing at all like before. Also, I will often use a breathe right strip at the same time to open up my nose.April 29, 2014 at 11:49 am #16278
I used a Breathe Right strip as tape for my mouth last night, since I had them on hand. I believe it was effective while it lasted. I woke at 3 and decided to remove it for some reason.May 29, 2014 at 5:02 pm #16566curiouscoconutParticipant
@prancie I’ve been using gentle medical tape to keep my mouth closed at night and it totally works!! My husband said he can barely hear my snores and I’ve noticed I sleep better. I use about a 1-inch strip of tape and place it vertically over my lips, almost right under my nose.
Thank you for the tip!
