Snoring is not at all a sign of sickness although it disturbs others sleeping near the person who snores. Snoring is normal for many persons. There are ways ot stopping snoring for those who desire. A small operation solves the problem.

Yes, heavy snoring is a symptom of obstruction in the air pathways. Obese people are more prone to snore. More than a symptom of disease, it can trigger many health problems because of poor quality of sleep and the breathing getting stopped momentarily in sleep.

Yes snoring can be asign of a serious underlyng medical problem like cor pulmonale(heart disease).it can itself cause hypertension,increase risk of stoke,heart attacks, diabetes by more than 50%.it can decrease sex drive cause increased urination problems ,impairs concentration & the risks of snoreres having road accidents are 540% more than normal people.also they can have psychiatric ailments like depression due to poor sleep & improper rest .All this occurs as the oxygenation during sleep in snorers is decreased so the person is
not fresh the next morning & has poor concentration & over a time all problems start.Dont take this condition lightly & contact your doctor or an ENT surgeon at the earliest.It is curable entirely.

Snoring is the vibration of respiratory structures and the resulting sound, due to obstructed air movement during breathing while sleeping. In some cases the sound may be soft, but in other cases, it can be rather loud and quite unpleasant. The structures are usually the uvula and soft palate. The irregular airflow is caused by a blockage and usually due to one of the following:

Throat weakness, causing the throat to close during sleep
Mispositioned jaw, often caused by tension in the muscles
Fat gathering in and around the throat
Obstruction in the nasal passageway
Caused by the tissues at the top of airways touching each other causing vibrations

The cause of snoring is size of bone inside the nose. When the air is coming our and going inside due to the enlarged bone inside the nose the sound comes. Also the posture, how a person is sleeping can cause snoring. If anybody is too much tired then also the sound may come.
If the person who is suffering from snoring will start doing "LOM ANULOM" i.e. breathing from one nostrils and relasing from another and again breating from another nostrils and taking it out from the previous one for 5 mintes daily will do it will find releaf. so the cure is there in YOGA!

Snoring is not a sign of disease ,otherwise it means deep and constructive sleep expression . Snoring is caused by breathing air rhythmically.
