Whether a person snores in sleep only?is it because of oily foods?


Answers:    I don't think eating oily foods would cause snoring. In fact, some sleep sprays for snoring are oil based. I snore horribly and have done much research on it. Snoring is caused by :
-Poor muscle tone in the tongue and throat. When muscles are too relaxed, either from alcohol or drugs that cause sleepiness, the tongue falls backwards into the airway or the throat muscles draw in from the sides into the airway. This can also happen during deep sleep.
-Excessive bulkiness of throat tissue. Children with large tonsils and adenoids often snore. Overweight people have bulky neck tissue, too. Cysts or tumors can also cause bulk, but they are rare.
-Long soft palate and/or uvula. A long palate narrows the opening from the nose into the throat. As it dangles, it acts as a noisy flutter valve during relaxed breathing. A long uvula makes matters even worse.
-Obstructed nasal airways. A stuffy or blocked nose requires extra effort to pull air through it. This creates an exaggerated vacuum in the throat, and pulls together the floppy tissues of the throat, and snoring results. So, snoring often occurs only during the hay fever season or with a cold or sinus infection.
-Also, deformities of the nose or nasal septum, such as a deviated septum (a deformity of the wall that separates one nostril from the other) can cause such an obstruction.

Adults who suffer from mild or occasional snoring should try the following self-help remedies:

Adopt a healthy and athletic lifestyle to develop good muscle tone and lose weight.
Avoid tranquilizers, sleeping pills, and antihistamines before bedtime.
Avoid alcohol for at least four hours and heavy meals or snacks for three hours before retiring.
Establish regular sleeping patterns
Sleep on your side rather than your back.
Tilt the head of your bed upwards four inches.

If you are heavy snoring every night, remember, snoring means obstructed breathing, and obstruction can be serious. It's not funny, and not hopeless. I would see a otolaryngologist, which will provide a thorough examination of the nose, mouth, throat, palate, and neck. A sleep study in a laboratory environment may be necessary to determine how serious the snoring is and what effects it has on the snorer's . I have included a link on the page that gives treatment options for snoring. Good luck! Best wishes =)
NO!

Snoring can be caused by ANY number of factors,
stuffy nose,
deviated septum-my father had this and corrective surgery,
only to find out that wasn't the soul trouble-
He has sleep apnea?


"Snoring has several causes. A cold or other infection can make breathing difficult and cause the sound of snoring as the sleeping person struggles to draw air through blocked nasal passages and throat. Sometimes snoring is the result of a medical condition, such as swollen tonsils and adenoids(lymphoid tissues located at the back of the throat). Snoring can also be caused by a misshapen wall separating the nasal cavity, called a deviated nasal septum, or a growth in the cavity, called a nasal polyp, both of which cause nasal blockages. Snoring can also occur when flabby throat muscles are drawn into the airway, particularly when muscular control is overly relaxed by alcohol, drugs, or deep sleep."

Good luck
