It can even disturb other people when traveling and staying away from home. Here at Kaplan Sleep Solutions our goal is to help provide solutions for snoring no matter the severity.

In order to properly treat snoring, you first need to understand why it happens.
Snoring is a harsh sound that is emitted at night from some people while they sleep. It typically occurs when the muscles and tissues in the throat relax after falling asleep, and vibrate against one another when air is inhaled. It can be both an annoyance to your bed partners, and also a possible indication of a deeper issue.
Many people are under the impression that snoring is a normal occurrence (and it is for some!), however, excessive, loud, abrupt and gasping snoring on a nightly basis is anything but normal.
Lifestyles changes such as weight loss, avoidance (or reduction) of alcohol , and positional sleeping can sometimes reduce or eliminate snoring.
