Singing can help overcome snoring and sleep apnea, according to the International Journal of Otolaryngology and Head and Neck Surgery, which cited a study conducted in the UK.
It involved 127 patients suffering from sleep apnea. They were divided into 2 groups; the first was assigned 20 minutes’ singing classes under a special program each day. The second group was a control group not involved in singing.
Three months later, the singing volunteers snored less and more quietly, and slept much better. Thus, the benefits of singing for snorers have been proven.
In Britain, there are about 80,000 people suffering from obstructive sleep apnea, or snoring. And this disease prevents healthy sleep and leads to chronic fatigue. Most often snoring occurs in middle-aged men.
The main reason for snoring is breath delay for 10 seconds on average 10 times per hour. If the breath delay is longer, the brain automatically wakes the snoring man to regain his breath.
