Snoring has been medically proven to contribute to major health problems and is associated with disrupted sleep and an increased risk for sleep apnea. Snoring and associated hyperventilation can also cause or exacerbate asthma, high blood pressure, heart disease and diabetes.
Indirectly, snoring can impact negatively on relationships. The effects can range from poor sleeping patterns to domestic tension. There are widespread reports of bed-partners resorting to earplugs or sleeping in another room. Snoring has been documented as the major cause of some marriage breakdowns.
When we breathe naturally, through the nose, the small hairs in the nostrils filter dust and other airborne foreign matte, creating a protective barrier for the respiratory organs. When a breath is taken through the mouth, there is nothing to strain the air; from mouth to lungs, any dirt or impure substance has a clear track and the entire respiratory system is unprotected. Many contagious diseases are contracted by the habit of mouth-breathing. Carefully conducted scientific experiments have shown that soldiers and sailors who sleep with their mouths open are much more liable to contract contagious diseases than those who breathe properly through the nostrils.
An instance is related in which smallpox became epidemic on a British man-of-war in during the 1800’s, and every death which resulted was that of some sailor or marine who was a mouth-breather, not a single nostril-breather succumbing. The organs of respiration have their only protective apparatus, filter, or dust-catcher, in the nostrils. When the breath is taken through the mouth, there is nothing from mouth to lungs to strain the air, or to catch the dust and other foreign matter in the air. From mouth to lungs the dirt or impure substance has a clear track and the entire respiratory system is unprotected. Moreover, such incorrect breathing admits cold air to the organs, thereby injuring them.
Inflammation of the respiratory organs often results from the inhalation of cold air through the mouth. The person, who breathes through the mouth at night, always awakens with a parched feeling in the mouth and dryness in the throat. They are violating one of nature’s laws and is sowing the seeds of disease. Once more, remember the mouth affords no protection to the respiratory organs, and cold air, dust and impurities and germs readily enter by that door. On other hand, nostrils and nasal passages show evidence of careful design of nature.
