Yet another snoring cure... according to some people.
A stop snoring nose clip could be some kind of insert, or just your standard, everyday Breathe-Rite or Breathe-aid or Breathe-Eze... etc. nasal strip.
You use it when you have a cold or allergies, and your nose is plugged. Often, a nasal strip can spread your nasal passages enough to allow some air to get past the swelling.
The same principle helps the nose to work better even when you don't have a cold. So, when you are on your back, sleeping, the nasal strip, acting as a stop snoring nose strip, allows more air to come in.
Because you are breathing through your nose (properly), the air passages at the back of your throat are at a slightly different angle than if you have opened your mouth to breathe. So that might be why a stop-snoring nose clip or strip can help a bit.
We, here at MHT have tried a couple of brands of standard strips - we absolutely refuse to pay extra for the same product that's re-branded as a snoring cure... c'mon! it's the same damn thing with a different name on it!
We have not yet tried http://sinuscones.com
It looks like it should work at least as well as the external adhesive strips.
Well... it works.
It's not perfect.
It doesn't work all the time.
But it kinda works.
It ... well... it helps.
Aside from relieving a constriction in your air-flow, a stop snoring nose clip helps ensure that you breathe more through your nose and less through your mouth. That alleviates the dry gummy feeling that you get from mouth breathing, which should help alleviate snoring, too.
We don't know how long a stop snoring nose clip will keep working, until your system accommodates to the small mechanical shift and your snoring comes back.
We think it's worth a try, especially as one of your early attempts, but we think that other products and interventions (like the chin straps, the pillows, etc.) will give you more bang for your buck. Stop snoring nose strips (or the regular nasal strips) don't cost much individually, but they're good for only a single use, and the night-after-night cost will quickly add up. The sinuscones.com product is reusable, but is recommended for three months and then replace.
