A Didgeridoo resembles the look of a long Vuvuzela and has been trendy for many years not only in Australia but also in many other cultures world over. However, not many know that a Didgeridoo can be used to alleviate standard cases of snoring or snoring related issues. In fact, many studies say that it is one of the most counted-on wind instruments to stop snoring just like many of the anti snoring devices.
Just like singing aloud, or using a stop snoring mouthpiece, there is a reason why playing a Didgeridoo may help one to overcome snoring. Snoring occurs due to a vibration when the airway gets partially blocked in the nasal cavity or the back of the throat during sleep. A proper exercise for the tissues in the mouth would improve the airway structure for a free flow of air. The upper airway allowing you to breathe freely would clear the snoring issues, provided one masters playing the Didgeridoo.
There is a flipside to this though, even as playing the instrument is quite fun and motivates the snorers to try alternate snoring remedies. However, there are people who feel even airing a balloon is somewhat tough. Didgeridoo is not that difficult to play for an instrument except for you practice. Further, to persist with the snoring remedy with practice can be backed up with a proper schedule.
Researchers suggest that those who practice playing the wind instrument have felt a marginal improvement in the sleep quality, with snoring reduced substantially during sleep. Just as you learn to cope up with wind force and master the technique as time moves on, increase practice time to an hour each day in a week.
You should play the wind instrument using your breath only – ‘circular breathing’ as some people say it. Start with small targets like half an hour to one hour in the starting few days in the first week with Didgeridoo experiment. You won’t just play the instrument for snoring; you breathe through the nose, release air via the mouth using the muscles in the cheek as well as tongue to exert air force, and produce the loud sound of a Didgeridoo.
