One of the most irritating ways to contribute to your partner’s health problems is by snoring. Getting the right amount of sleep is essential for leading a healthy lifestyle, and if you’re constantly waking up in the middle of the night due to your partner’s snoring it could have serious long-term effects on your health.
Not getting the recommended 6-8 hours of sleep per night can cause a variety of problems for your health including weight gain, high blood pressure, diabetes, heart diseases and more. Lack of sleep has also been proven to negatively affect critical thinking and cognitive function.
What Causes Snoring?
So, you now know that causing your partner to lose sleep can harm both their physical and mental well-being. It’s time to get to the root of the problem. What exactly causes you to snore?
If you are a chronic snorer then there is a good chance that the main cause of your snoring comes from nasal congestion. The build-up of mucus in your throat and nasal passage can be caused by a variety of factors ranging from allergies to nasal infections and even the common cold. Clearing up this mucus is one of the ways that you can reduce or even prevent further snoring.
How Drinking Juice Can Help
Drinking juices has quickly becoming a popular way to improve one’s nutrition and health. It is also a simple (and tasty) method of keeping your airways clear and reducing congestion. This is because drinking freshly-extracted juice is one of the most efficient ways of consuming vitamins and other nutrients required to have a healthy immune system.
Having a healthy immune system can prevent snoring by reducing your chances of contracting viruses that cause nasal congestion. Having a well-functioning immune system will also help prevent you from developing allergies which can seriously contribute to mucus build-up.
Get Your 5 Per Day
Many people find it difficult to get their 5 portions of fruits and vegetables a day, but juicing makes that an absolute doddle. Rather than spend most of your day preparing various meals of fruits and vegetables to be eaten, juicing allows you to get the same amount of nutrients condensed into a small glass of juice. This makes both the preparation and consumption of immune system boosting foods easier and less time-consuming.
Drinking juices is an easy way to make sure you get all of the nutrients you need in order to have clear nasal passages and a well-rested partner.
Foods To Avoid During The Day
You can avoid certain foods from the early evening hours to reduce mucus build-up that narrows your air passage.
Here are examples of some foods to avoid. These foods don’t do much good for your health anyway: Dairy products, flour and sugar products, chocolate, fried foods, processed/refined foods.
Also avoid drinking alcohol and smoking. Eating a heavy meal before bedtime may make you snore louder than usual.
Having avoided the above foods, drink a glass of this simple juice combo that helps reduce your nasal congestion. Over time, by following this easy diet, your snoring will gradually reduce and your partner will thank you for a good night’s sleep!
Here is a quick and simple recipe for an immune system-boosting juice:
- 4 big carrots
- 1 apple
- squeeze of lemon
- ½-inch of ginger root
Wash the ingredients, cut them into sizes that can fit through your juicer’s chute. Put them through your juicer. Serve chilled, drink a couple of hours before going to sleep.
