Mouth Taping for people that snore
Wednesday, March 06, 2019
My purpose: to stop my snoring.
I have snored for years. The extra fat around my throat did not seem to help but I never did lose it.
I would drink water before bed and immediately upon waking to soothe my aching throat.
I had tried the various things on the market, even bought a $2500 mouth appliance twice. But hubby still complained that they didn't work and wanted me to do surgery. I did not want this so continued to snore and stress out because I was upsetting the man. We have since separated. My snoring was a major source of this.
(Although he snored too)and stopped breathing.. Yep I saved his life.. Got him tested for apnea.. Now he wears the Cpac
But back to me..
It was also so embarrassing when others could hear me from other rooms of the house. So I would wait for them to sleep first and go down to the basement to sleep
So if I can help anyone avoid this type of emotional drainage... Here here
Mouth taping worked and continues to work for me.
The first time I tried it, I used duct tape(I used to call it Duck tape.. 😂)
& I looked like a victim of some kind of abduction but we won't go there. I was safe in my own home but I looked funny. But don't use it.. It kinda hurts to take off.
When I woke up that first night and was told I had not snored, you can only imagine the pure happiness. And no sore throat.
So now I just use one piece of medical tape from the top of my lip to the bottom of my chin.
I don't look as funny and it comes off easy. Just don't use moisturizer around it or it won't stick.
I still use my appliance to stop me from grinding my teeth and because I paid so much for them.
And now I sleep better, deeper because my body isn't fighting with my central nervous system anymore.
😀 🤩 🤩 🤩 Woot woot.
