Homeopathic Treatment for Snoring

Harsh sounds produced due to obstructed air movements while breathing during sleep are known as Snoring. Vibration of respiratory structures produce these sounds. Various factors play a significant role in snoring. One of the main factors among these is the obstruction of the nasal passageway. Nose blockage occurs because of many reasons. Some of these are a deviated nasal septum, nasal polyps, sleep deprivation and lying on the back. Alcohol intake, certain drugs, sleeping pills, obesity leading to bulky throat tissue, enlarged adenoids or tonsils, elongated uvula, thick or soft palate, and highly relaxed throat or tongue muscles can also be possible causes of snoring. Snoring often leads to drowsiness, headaches, and lack of concentration in daytime. Homeopathic medicines used for treating snoring yield excellent results by correcting the cause behind it. Homeopathic treatment for snoring is natural, safe and treats the condition without any side effects.

There are some effective homeopathic medicines to treat snoring. However, none of them are specific, and a thorough case study is required to decide on the most suitable medicine. Homeopathic medicines used to treat snoring are Opium, Lemna Minor, China, Kali Sulph, Nux Vomica, Dulcamara, and Laurocerasus.

    Dear Dr Sharma,

    I have swollen turbinates for over 15 years. the nose starts blocking the minute I lie down. This resuts in bad sleep and completely tired in the morning. I had correction of nasal septum and partial reduction of turbinates with 30% – 50% beneficial effect. But problem persists with left nose blocking more. Please advise
