To Snore or Not to Snore - That's so NOT a question!

Snoring. I can't think of one other word that evokes such amazingly strong responses from people. Everyone has a story to tell, and everyone's story is a story of woe. Loss of sleep, feelings of hatred.  Nothing good can come of it. At all. So, it's time to do something about it. It's time to organize your snorer.

Now, the snorer might by you. If so, kudos for doing something about your secret shame.  Or it might be your significant other. If that is the case, my heart goes out to you.  You were sold a false dream. Nowhere in the fairy tales where the prince and princess unite does it include the fact that the prince/princess snores. I seem to remember dwarfs snoring, but Prince Charming? Never!  So, I'm sure it came as a big surprise when you heard those first snorts and snuffles coming from your own prince or princess. Who are we to believe if we can't believe in fairy tales?

Well, enough about those dreams. Time to deal with the nightmare. I can relate. My husband was a snorer. And not a log sawing type of snorer, not the kind where the sounds came at some sort of a measured pace. No, he was a snorter snorer. You never knew when the sound would come, and when it did, it was loud and abrupt. 

Did he have sleep apnea I can hear some of you saying? Yes, he did. He went for the overnight test at the hospital and they verdict was yes - he doesn't get a restful night sleep. Like this was news to me.

He was fitted with the contraption that will help him breathe like a human being and get his beauty sleep. And by proxy, me, mine. Did it work? Well, yes and no - yes, he was able to breathe better, but no, he still couldn't sleep because now he was being asked to sleep with what amounted to a gas mask strapped to his face. And I was being asked to sleep next to what sounded like Darth Vader. A peaceful night ahead? I think not. Not to mention what it looked like. Very romantic. There are reason why Victoria's Secret doesn't sell these.

So, I researched alternative means. I love that term, alternative means. Usually means "let's try that old remedy our forefathers believed in that is much better for us, better for the planet and actually works". And this one did all that and more. What is it you may ask? Something so simple, so basic, so cheap and so miraculous all wrapped up in one. It is .........drum roll please..........The Snore Ring! 

Yes, the name is silly. But I ask you to just listen to me for a moment. Believe for a second if you could. Here are the details: 

  • The Snore Ring is a cheap piece of copper(?) 
  • My husband slips on his pinkie each night
  • By way of the ancient power of acupressure, HE NO LONGER SNORES!
  • AT ALL. I'm not kidding. 

All is quiet on the home front once again. Sounds like magic? Well, it is. Now, I have no idea why this works, and I'm not going to look a gift horse in the mouth. I'm just glad it does.

I can't guarantee results for you. I suggested it to some of my friends, and they say it didn't work for them. But I am suggesting you try it. For the low, low price of $19.95, life can be worth living again. Here's the link if you're willing to give it a go.

One of my friends had no luck with the ring for her husband, but she tried The Mattress Genie, some sort of device that lifts the mattress just a bit and ceases the snoring. I can't vouch for it, but for her it was the magic cure. Here's a link for that.

All I can say is that there are four happier, more rested people in the world thanks to these two devices. 

If snoring is your vice, try one of these solutions. It may just be the magic cure you're looking for!
