Best Ayurvedic treatment for Snoring - Alveda


Snoring from the point of view of Ayurveda

Snoring is often associated with a sleep disorder called obstructive sleep apnea. Obstructive sleep apnea is typically characterized by loud snoring followed by periods of silence when breathing stops or nearly stops.
There are various possible causes of snoring. It is frequently a throat muscle
problem; excess mucus that accumulates in the muscles of the throat can cause nasal congestion. In more severe cases, cerebral circulation can be disrupted, which can lead to vision problems or brain fog, as well as asthma and sinus problems. The thyroid gland or pituitary gland may also be affected. Obesity is a very common factor of snoring, but there are also many people who are not obese but whose bodies are so toxic that as soon as they relax, the flow of mucus increases in an attempt to remove the toxins.
Ayurveda perceives snoring as a Kapha aggravation, since it is highly associated with obesity as a main symptom. Vata and Pitta doshas could have an impact on this disorder too.

How Ayurvedic doctors treat snoring

The selection of suitable Ayurvedic medicines for the treatment of snoring depends entirely on the accurate diagnosis of the underlying problem. The priority is to reduce Kapha, but the doctor may also prescribe medications and procedures to treat the lungs and respiratory tract, sinuses, tonsils, thyroid, adrenal glands, or any other system that may be affected.
One of the most commonly used medicines for snoring is Trikatu, which stimulates digestion and helps eliminate toxins. Lekhana, Medohara Ahara, Vihar and Shodhana therapies can be beneficial too.
Ayurvedic treatment for snoring always includes dietary advice to reduce Kapha. Such a diet will focus on alkaline foods and spices.
