Comfortable nasal breathing is a prerequisite for active breathing during sleep. This is a key step for preventing nocturnal drooling. But, if nocturnal drooling happens frequently seek medical advice from your ENT physician.
Helpful tips against nocturnal drooling
- Treatment of colds and allergies: Is your nasal breathing inhibited by a cold or an allergy, these need to be treated at first.
- Autogenous training for nasal breathing: Another way is learning nasal breathing via autogenous training. Before sleeping, you lie down relaxed into your bed with your eyes closed. Imagine, how you close your mouth and breath through your nose. This imagination is also suitable after a nose surgery.
- Use of an orthopedic pillow: The use of an orthopedic pillow supports the ergonomic positioning of the cervical spine. This optimally supports the neck area and prevents from nocturnal drooling. You will find a wind range of orthopedic pillows with SAMINA.
- Regular sleep-wake-rhythm: Working at night and partying late into the night lead to bad sleep and lack of sleep. A regular sleep-wake-rhythm on the other hand contributes to a healthy and restful sleep. So, try to go to bed and to get up at about the same times.
- Leave your stress outside: Try to let go everyday stress. A relaxed evening walk, a nice talk with some friends, or some relaxation exercises help to relax.
