I can't believe it. I read that drinking 1 Tbl of ACV stops snoring. My husband is slightly overweight and snores LOUD! I figured it was a weight issue. I would elbow him or make him sleep on his side but that didn't really help. So as an experiment, I gave him 1Tbl of ACV with juice before bed time. Silence!!

I literally had a hard time sleeping all night the first night because I kept waking up in awe that he WASN'T snoring! He even wakes up more energized because of better quality sleep.

We're on day 3 and same! This is my first post because I had to evangelize!!

After hitting menopause, I began snoring, which is something the doctors seem to expect. I had a turbinate reduction a few years ago, after trying several different medications. That helped for a while. Then, it started again. I was tested for allergies, but there was nothing significant. I covered my mattress and pillows with high-end protectors in case it was dust mites I was inhaling. I was still snoring. I researched several different ways to drink ACV, which stopped my snoring, but I really didn't like the strong flavor. In fact, I eventually stopped drinking ACV altogether. As a result, I have been snoring for the past few weeks (again! ) so when a co-worker went on and on about how great Switchel tasted, I decided to make some and, lo and behold, it DOES taste wonderful! I drank some yesterday morning and last night and...voila! No snoring last night, much to my husband's joy! I love this stuff so much, I'll be drinking it morning and night!

The recipe calls for 1/3 cup of ACV (always with the mother), 1/2 fresh lemon, 4 TB of honey or Agave (I used stevia), 2 TB finely grated fresh ginger, 1 cup of spring water and 1 cup of lemon-flavored seltzer water.

Put it in a lidded quart jar and leave it overnight. To drink, just pour 1/3-1/2 cup of mixture in a 10-oz glass and add enough lemon-flavored seltzer water to top off the glass. It is absolutely awesome! I have been substituting flavored seltzer water for soft drinks for a while now and I'll be trying other flavors than lemon in my Switchel.

Just make sure the seltzer water is carbonated spring water with natural flavors, nothing artificial added. Bon appetite and bon voyage to snoring!

Mom is 87, snored like a buzz saw all our lives, shook the farthest window glass in our home. Since living in senior care, she has taken to asking I buy Linden Tea for her. It is regularly at dollar stores, drug stores, any store really, with all the other tea bags. Couldn't believe, as she briefly slept to nap during my last longer visit, no snoring. None. On the teabag box below the words Linden Tea are in small words Eucalyptus Tea. Wow. Family tree is shocked!

Hello, after suffering the last few months with constant congestion both in my sinus's and my upper chest I checked myself into a hospital. After being poked and monitored for 3 days they discharged me after filling me with the same off the shelf Mucinex you can buy yourself. Of course after a day I started feeling bad again as the drug wore off. Out of desperation I turned to the Internet as I felt I was suffocating from the congestion. I found this website with all the testimonials on the wonders of using ACV. I went to the local market during lunch and bought a bottle of Heinz Apple Cider Vinegar...for $3 I'd take a chance...why not? That evening (four days ago) I started taking a tablespoon of ACV in a coffee mug I filled with water. In an hour my sinus's started feeling clearer. I had forgotten I could breath through my left nostril. I started drinking my "tea" in the morning and evening. Well, now its been 4 days and my chest is starting to clear also. Just yesterday I was still having the chest constrictions but today I feel great. I'm anxious to try the natural unfiltered ACV when and where I can find it. Also interested in adding local hometown honey if I can find it as I have read about the benefits here also. Now, I need to say that I'm an old crouch, 57 years old, and set in my ways. But I have to admit to you all that this has helped me. No voodoo magic stuff for me. Try it. I did and I'm happy. And the wife is happy too! She says I haven't snored in the three nights I've tried this. Of course I didn't think I ever snored!!

Seven days ago I was ready to put a gun to my head. I was continuously waking up, had difficulty breathing and swallowing. My self diagnosis search led me to this web site. I started taking two tablespoons of ACV and a quarter teaspoon of baking soda in about 4 ounces of apple juice.It actually tasted pretty good. Some relief was almost immediate, but one week later I am thrilled to report 2 consecutive good nights sleeps of about 7 hours. This is the best I have slept in two months as the throat problems caused me to snore badly when I could get to sleep. My wife has welcomed me back from the guest room, which I am also thrilled about. I have osteoarthritis which I WAS using a combination of CELEBREX (4 OR SO A MONTH) and IBUPROPHEN(whenever I wanted)I would get up in the morning and enjoy 6 or 7 cups of coffee on an empty stomach, then eat and have 3 or 4 diet sodas during the rest of the day. BAD BAD BAD. So I stopped the coffee and sodas, started taking B complex, large doses of Vitamin c, L Glutamine and traded the coffee for herbal teas, and the sodas for juice. NO MORE IBUPROFEN Tylenol only if I need it. Bottom line: In a week I feel totally different, much much better actually. THANK GOD for this web site. I wish you luck if you have a similar situation to mine.


Mangosteen Juice

I would like to tell everyone about a remedy not listed on this site...Mangosteen juice! I bought the juice for its super-antioxidant properties, but I found a very happy unknown (to me) cure. My boyfriend and daughter snore terribly, and the first night we all tried the juice, they both stopped snoring. Not only that, but they both breathed through their noses all night! All it takes is 1/3 cup of juice 2 hours before bedtime. The juice has strong anti-inflammatory properties which may be what stops the snoring.

When I found this website I was suffering from acid reflux and GERD so bad that every night's sleep was being interrupted. I even stopped eating dinner for about 2 weeks hoping to offset an attack. I was already on medication for high blood pressure and was refusing to take the purple pill for the reflux. I found this site and immediately thought about Dr. Atkins little refered to book on methods of weight loss and gastrointenstinal health that he put out long before the Atkins diet. It was a regime of vinegar and olive oil (tablespoon of each) before or after each meal. This could not have been a coincidence. So I got some ACV and proceeded to drink 1/4 cup acv in 8 ounces of water either right after my evening meal, or just before brushing my teeth for bed. I have slept like a queen for 2 weeks. My snoring is normal instead of ground shaking. It is so nice not to toss and turn all through the night. I am going to up my regime to use it for high blood pressure next. Wish me luck!

Cure for snoring. 1 lemon squeezed in water and drink afternoon to bedtime and I never snore anymore. Hope it works for you too!

My husband has a legendary reputation for his snoring. We have been taking a daily dose of ACV for a few months now. His snores have been reduced to quiet breathing from the Earth-shattering events that used to drive me to the couch. Yeah! for ACV.

It apparently works for some but not here. I have tried it for 2 years now and after putting the bed back on level it seemed like it was still raised 6". We have not noticed any difference in the way we sleep or feel after trying it, so I would have to give it a nay.


Mangosteen Juice

I also have experimented with Mangosteen, & have noticed some positive results with inflammation. However it is ridiculously expensive. I would encourage you to buy it from a local health store & NOT from some multi-level marketing scheme. There are a lot of exaggerated claims and untrustworthy internet vendors making it difficult to separate truth from fact.


Coconut Oil

Every night before bed, my husband and I put a little coconut oil up in our nostrils/nose. Ever since we started doing thtis, he has a lot less trouble with allergies, and he says that I no longer snore! Not that I ever was a real loud snorer, but whatever heavy breathing that blockage or congestion was causing, it is now gone! It only takes about 1/4 tsp. - just a tiny bit on your fingertip for each nostril.

I just want to let all of you snoring folks out there know that I after using the hydrogen peroxide inhalation technique 3 to 4 time a day that I no longer snore. This is what my wife says anyway since I have never heard myself snore. Thanks Earth Clinic.

Hydrogen Peroxide

I love this one. I have been convinced that I snore because I have awakened from sleep thinking that I had somehow acquired a growling dog in my bedroom, and scared to death until I figured out that me and my snoring was that vicious dog, since it always stopped as soon as I woke up. I must warn you, if this works for other snorers, the ENT guys and maybe a few other surgeons, are going to hate you because you definitely will decrease their "job security", by decreasing their patient load for surgery to get rid of the problem.

I am amazed to see the fast active ACV and its health benefits. I have been using ACV for the last 3 weeks. I have lost around 8 pounds till today, my BP is getting well controlled around 110/70 and oily skin is natural looking w/o any skin eruptions, etc. Overall I feel young and mentally sharp at the age of 55. I also found something astonishing and require verification from others. I found and, as reported by my family, my Snoring is missing now a days!! Really ACV is an Amazing Drink. Thanks

I have tried the Hydrogen Peroxide in a nasal spray bottle. It does work, but not all the time. I alternate now with the HP and Vicks vapor rub. I boil a cup of water, then add a teaspoon of Vicks and stir. I breath it in deeply for about 5-10 minutes prior to going to sleep. I have had a report of little or no snoring sine I started this.


Taping Your Mouth Shut

Hello, for Snoring, I suffered many years from this, and tried many solutions from the internet, and self-help books. Tried facial devices that are worn on the face to hold the jaw closed during sleep. I also tried the method of placing a tennis ball in the back of a T-shirt, and sleeping on my side. The tennis ball prevents you from sleeping on your back (which allows snoring). The best solution that worked for many years now is: Simply apply some standard yellow 2.0 inch wide masking tape to the mouth, at bedtime (kiss your wife before please....). The tape length should be enough, about 8.0 inches long, to hold the ends tightly on your cheeks. Result: You will not snore because snoring requires an open mouth. Good Luck. Lowest cost snoring solution ever invented.
