Multi-prong approach to stop snoring.

How To Stop Snoring has left a new comment on your post "Pure Sleep: A Treatment For Snoring Not For Sleep ...":

"What a great blog.To stop snoring it is best to adopt a multi-pronged approach by addressing each factor in your quest for snore relief. Excess body weight, too much alcohol drinking, deviated septum, chronic nasal congestion are some of the common reasons why people snore. "

Thank you for your comment. I agree with you there are answers available and one you didn't list is sleep posture. Staying off you back can help both apnea and snoring. The hope is to find the best possible treatment for the each and every individual patient who snores or has sleep apnea.
