12 Ways To Stop Snoring


Here are some great ways to stop snoring.
Let us know which ones work for you!

1. Utilize a tennis ball

If you happen to be someone who sleeps mostly on their back, try putting a tennis ball in a shirt pocket of an old shirt and sewing it to the mid-back of your pajama top (the top should be one that fits snuggly.) When you roll over, the discomfort from the tennis ball forces you to roll back on your side, without waking you up. It sounds bizarre but if you can sleep through your partner elbowing you, a tennis ball shouldn’t be a problem. You could also try strapping one on somehow-but that isn’t as practical, and won’t be terribly comfortable either.

You will need…
-1 tennis ball
-Shirt pocket of an old shirt
-Needle and thread

Cut the shirt pocket out of an old shirt, and thread your needle. Sew the pocket into the mid back region of your pajama top. The top should be snug, so that the material doesn’t just shift the ball out of the way as you roll over. Don’t worry if it’s not pretty-nobody is judging your seamstress skills here. Tuck the tennis ball in the pocket before you crawl in bed, and proceed to sleep per usual.

Note: If you have a dog that really, really, likes tennis balls…you’ve been warned.

2. Humidify, humidify, humidify

If you sleep in a room with dry air it’s possible that its contributing or causing you to snore. Dry air dries out our throat and nasal membranes and contributes to congestion. This makes it air movement restricted, and will set your tissues vibrating. There are two ways to going about treating your snoring if this is the case-buy a humidifier, or move to an exceptionally exotic tropical location.

3. If you’re overweight, lose weight

If you’re overweight it’s possible that its causing your snoring, or making it worse. When you’re overweight you may have extra tissues in the throat contributing to the noise. The more that blocks your throat the more air is interrupted as it flows over, creating the vibrations that result in the sound of snoring.

4. Raise the head of your bed

You can raise the head of your bed about 4 inches or so, which may help keep your tongue from falling back and blocking your throat, and may help open up your airways a little bit.

You will need…
-Sturdy blocks of wood, about 1-2 inches thick OR books


If you don’t have wood lying around that you can use, you can pick up some scrap lumber easily at some hardware stores. It should be flat, square, and about 1-2 inches thick. Make sure it is wide enough to thoroughly cover the base of the foot you will be resting on it. Add these blocks 1 by 1 until you’ve reached about 4 inches. If you’d prefer to use books instead, just pop some under the feet at the head of the bed. In both cases, but particularly with books because of their uneven size, make sure the bed it steady and doesn’t wobble.

5. Keep up on housecleaning

As much fun as cleaning is, keeping up on making sure your living quarters are spick and span can pay off in the end. Allergens like pollen, dust, animal dander, and other unseen irritants can cause congestion and irritate your airways, both of which can contribute to snoring. Also make sure you’re changing your air filters on a regular basis.

6. Try to pinpoint why you snore

Figuring out what’s making you snore means you can treat it with much more success than if you’re trying remedies in the dark (even though you will try them in the dark.) Examine your lifestyle and diet-are you overweight? Do you drink alcohol before bedtime? Have your physician check-is the structure of your mouth the culprit? How you sleep when snoring may also indicate the problem. It has been speculated that-

Closed mouth snoring: If your mouth stays shut but you snore on, it may indicate a problem with your tongue/nasal passageways.

Snoring with your mouth wide open: The tissues in your throat may be more likely to be causing you to snore with your mouth open. If your throat is partially obstructed, you’re apt to try to force in more air when you sleep-aka, snore.

Snoring on your back: Often times on our back we breathe through our mouths, which can exacerbate snoring.

Snoring regardless of position: Possibly the sign of a more serious problem, such as sleep apnea-see your doctor if your snoring is loud enough to keep your partner awake or if you wake yourself up.

7. Anti-snoring pills

Herbal pills are available that are aimed at reducing snoring. They’re made up of natural enzymes that target nasal congestion and work to reduce it, which in turn may reduce your snoring. There isn’t a whole lot to back the claims, but its something to look into if you’re feeling up to trying out some different treatment methods.

8. Freshen up the humidifier

If dry air and congestion are making you snore, try adding various oils to the vaporizer or humidifier. Some, such as peppermint, can help open up airways and clear out your sinuses while you sleep.

You will need…
-a humidifier or vaporizer
-Several drops of peppermint OR eucalyptus oil

About 30 minutes before you crawl into bed, add 3-5 drops of peppermint or eucalyptus oil into your humidifier or vaporizer. If you wish to add more, do so after you try starting with less. You don’t want to create a scent that’s too overwhelming.

9. Adjust your pillows

Elevating your head can help open up airways and make breathing easier-but if your head is too high, your airways can get constricted and that may cause your to snore. If you have a pillow that is too thick, or you sleep on multiple pillows, try adjusting the height. Not too fluffy and not too flat is important when it comes to what you rest your head on. Finding a pillow that keeps your head and neck in a proper position is worth taking the time to do to help you breathe right.

10. Practice Pranayama

Pranayama is a type of yoga exercise dedicated to learning how to control your breathing. You master taking deep, slow, breaths and get the most out of the oxygen around you. It aids in the delivery of blood to the brain and overall increases circulation. It is also an incredible technique for relaxation. Pranayama has been used to relieve various sleep disorders, including sleep apnea. Look into some classes or practice at home to possibly reduce or eliminate your snoring. You will feel rested, rejuvenated, and energized as a result.

11. Exercise your tongue and throat

Making the muscles in your tongue and throat stronger can help reduce snoring because it decreases the chance of them slipping limply backwards when you rest. As we age we tend to snore more as well, because our tissues are losing strength and elasticity, which means they Fill up your airways more than they once did. There are a number of different exercises you can try, many being adopted from speech pathologists or doctors who use them to help patients who have trouble swallowing.

Ideas for exercises
-Try to protrude the lower jaw over the upper jaw with your teeth showing while you count slowly to ten. Repeat 5-10 times a day.

-Give your tongue a work out by saying this phrase at least 10-20 times before going to sleep “The lips, the teeth, the tip of the tongue.”

-Put your tongue out perfectly straight as far as you can. Move it left, then right, touching the corner of your lips but making sure it stays straight. Do this in front of a mirror twice a day.

12. Avoid alcohol and sedatives

Don’t drink alcoholic beverages or use sedatives at least two hours before bedtime. Both alcohol and sedatives can relax you’re the tissue in your throat, making it expand and block off the airways, which then results in snoring.

Snoring is a tricky condition because there really isn’t a “cure.” To naturally stop or lessen your snoring, lifestyle changes are key. Exercise, weight loss, managing allergies, and changing sleeping positions are the types of things that seem to really work for some people but, like any remedy, may not do anything for another person. Try to figure out what’s causing your snoring so you can treat your snoring as effectively as possible

Get A Flu Shot


Are you worried about the shot making you sick?
This excerpt from WebMD will ease your fears:

Can the flu vaccine can give you the flu?

This is the flu myth most likely to drive experts bonkers. “There is simply no way that the flu vaccine can give you the flu,” says Hay. “It’s impossible.”

Why? For one, injected flu vaccines only contain dead virus, and a dead virus is, well, dead: it can’t infect you. There is one type of live virus flu vaccine, the nasal vaccine, FluMist. But in this case, the virus is specially engineered to remove the parts of the virus that make people sick.

Despite the scientific impossibility of getting the flu from the flu vaccines, this widespread flu myth won’t die. Experts suspect two reasons for its persistence. One, people mistake the side effects of the vaccine for flu. While side effects to the vaccine these days tend to be a sore arm, in the past, side effects often felt like mild symptoms of the flu. Two, flu season coincides with a time of year when bugs causing colds and other respiratory illnesses are in the air. Many people get the vaccine and then, within a few days, get sick with an unrelated cold virus. However, they blame the innocent flu vaccine, rather than their co-worker with a runny nose and cough.

US Measels Cases In 2013 May Be Most In 17 Years


U.S. measles cases in 2013 may be most in 17 years

Those who choose not to vaccinate put other people's babies at risk, experts say.
Those who choose not to vaccinate put other people’s babies at risk, experts say.

  • 159 cases of measles in the United States from January 1 through August 24
  • Last highest year was 2011, when there were 222 cases
  • Nearly two-thirds of cases happened in communities where many people don’t vaccinate
  • Nearly 40% of children under the age of five who get measles have to be hospitalized

(CNN) — This year is on track to be the worst for measles in more than a decade, according to new numbers released Thursday by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. And people who refuse to vaccinate their children are behind the increasing number of outbreaks, health officials say.

There were 159 cases of measles in the United States from January 1 through August 24, according to the CDC. If that trend continues, there will be more cases in 2013 than in any year since 1996, when some 500 cases were reported. The number would also surpass that of 2011, when there were 222 cases.

Measles cases in the United States numbered in the hundreds of thousands before the advent of vaccination, and dropped dramatically throughout the 1960s. The disease was thought to have been eradicated in 2000, but the numbers have recently crept back up, largely because of visitors from countries where measles is common and because of vaccine objectors within the United States. Nearly two-thirds of the reported cases happened in three outbreaks in communities where many people don’t vaccinate their children for religious or philosophical reasons.

Measles is a highly contagious respiratory disease caused by a virus. But it can be prevented by the MMR vaccine. The CDC recommends that kids get two doses — the first at 12 months of age and the second dose before entering school.

“This is very bad. This is horrible,” said Dr. Buddy Creech, a pediatric infectious disease expert at Vanderbilt University who was on a telephone briefing with the CDC Thursday morning. “The complications of measles are not to be toyed with, and they’re not altogether rare.”

According to the CDC, one to three out of every 1,000 children in the United States who get measles will die from the disease, even with the best of care. Even if complications such as pneumonia and encephalitis aren’t deadly, they can make children very sick; in 2011, nearly 40% of children under the age of 5 who got measles had to be treated in the hospital.

Measles usually starts with a fever, which can get very high, followed by a cough, runny nose and red eyes. Soon a rash of tiny, red spots will start at the head and spread to the rest of the body. The rash can last a week and coughing can last for up to 10 days.

Creech said he’s concerned younger physicians might not be quick to recognize the signs of measles, since there have been only pockets of the disease since 2000.

“Many young pediatricians might not know what measles looks like,” he said.

Among those who have been stricken with measles this year, 92% were not vaccinated or had unknown vaccination status. The largest outbreak was in New York, where 58 people contracted measles in a community where many refuse to be vaccinated for religious reasons.

Those who choose not to vaccinate put other people’s babies at risk, since babies cannot be vaccinated until their first birthday, and are therefore vulnerable to the disease.

“I hope that those who are vaccine hesitant or vaccine avoidant realize there are consequences to their actions,” Creech said. “None of us lives in isolation.”

September Is Childhood Cancer Month – Dedication Poem


September Is Childhood Cancer Month – Dedication Poem

On behalf of September being Childhood Cancer Month, I have written a poem and I dedicate it to the children and their families affected by this horrific disease.


No child should ever have to deal with this disease.

Unfortunately it picks whomever it does please.

It is no respecter of a person’s age.

To its treatments a person is bound like being in a cage.

It does not care about race or gender,

By entering whomever it wants to enter.

One of the many things that’s so unfair,

Is the treatment for it makes you lose your hair.

It comes like a thief in the night,

And leaves a person in a torturous fight for their life.

Children may be small, but they seem to be strong.

Compared to adults, much better the children get along.

With Love,

Bonnie Jean

          Written August 24, 2013 for Childhood Cancer Month in September.

About Skinny Fiber


It contains 3 main plant ingredients:

Glucomannon- a unique all natural soluble dietary fiber that expands 50 times its size in your stomach helping you overcome the #1 enemy of weight management … overeating. In addition to the amazing support for your weight loss goals, on its way through the body, glucomannan supports the colon, thereby supporting the digestive system.*

Caralluma- a plant, in the cactus family, that has been used as a natural appetite suppressant and thirst quencher in India for centuries, particularly in times of famine.* Caralluma fimbriata is also believed to help support weight management.* It is believed to block certain enzymes that form fat in the body.

Chá de Bugre- a small tree fround in Brazil- very successful in suppressing the appetite and believed to fight cellulite. Can be roasted and made into a coffee substitute and is a good heart tonic that stimulates circulation. It’s also used in Brazil and Haiti as a tea to help relieve cough, regulate renal function, reduce uric acid, and externally to heal wounds.

Additionally, Skinny Fiber also has 7 digestive enzymes and antioxidants:

Beyond supporting digestion, certain Digestive Enzymes can play a major role in weight management.*Enzymes are responsible for every single chemical reaction in every single cell of your body. The enzymes found naturally in raw foods are very sensitive to heat (cooking) and most processed foods are completely void of the enzymes your body desperately needs to properly digest your meal. If you cannot get enough nutrition from the food you take in, your body just wants more.

Amylase- an enzyme that helps digest carbohydrates. Breaks down starch and turns them into a natural sugar which gives the body energy. Also found in the pancreas and the glands that make saliva.

Protease- a digestive enzyme needed to digest protein. It liberates amino acids needed by the body. Used as therapy for benefits in oncology, inflammatory conditions, blood rheology control, and immune regulation.

Lipase- a digestive enzyme needed to digest a healthy amount of fat our bodies need. It hydrolyzes lipids, the ester bonds in triglycerides, to form fatty acids and glycerol. Dissolves fat throughout the body, improves metabolism, and aids in overall detoxification process.

Glucoamylase- also turns starch into sugar for easy digestion

Papain- a protease enzyme found in the papaya plant and is used to treat gastrointestinal problems such as stomach ulcers and indigestion. Breaks down heavy proteins to make them easy to digest and absorb into the body and works well against Celiac disease, shingles, and herpes. It also shortens the healing time of some injuries and surgery.

Cellulase- sustains blood sugar, maintains good level of cholesterol, supports cell membranes to keep them healthy from free radicals, toxic chemicals, and breaks down biofilm to help detoxify the intestinal tract as well as major organs.

Bromelain- enzymes found in pineapples, used for digestive support. It treats inflammation following surgery primarily of the ear, nose, and throat as well as other infections and injuries. Aids heartburn when used with amylase and lipase and reduces diarrhea.
