According to a recent study ("Effects of oropharyngeal exercises on patients with moderate obstructive sleep apnea
syndrome"),published in The American Journal of Respiratory and
Critical Care Medicine, researchers studied a group of people with obstructive sleep apnea and divided them into
two groups. One group was trained to do daily breathing exercises, whereas the second group did 30 minutes of
throat exercises, such as swallowing and chewing motions, moving the tip of the tongue against the front of the
palate and sliding it back, and attempting to pronounce certain vowels quickly and continuously.
After three months duration of this experiment, subjects who performed the throat
exercises snored less, slept better and reduced the severity of their condition by 39 percent. The subject group
also showed a reduction in neck circumference, which is a known risk factor for snoring. The control group showed
virtually no improvement.
