Not snake oil Project 365(3) Day 275

It is a fact that if you are overweight (which I am), you smoke (which I do) and you consume alcohol before bedtime (which I also do) then you are more than likely to snore in your sleep.


There are all sorts of cures for snoring, most of which have little or no effect. I tried a watch device that supposedly gave me a shock every time i snored and I have tried silver rings that press on acupuncture points. Both worked to a certain extent but neither is really a satisfactory cure.


When I visited the dentist a couple of weeks back, he told me my sinuses were blocked and prescribed both antibiotics and this nasal spray.


An unfortunate side affect of the antibiotics was diarrhoea so I stopped taking them but I have persisted with the nasal spray which does seem to have helped cure the snoring. I can see the logic of that - if your nose is blocked then you are going to snore as you breathe through your mouth.


PS In case you haven't worked it out, this is 100% sea salt water which is both isotonic and sterile and so is perfectly safe to squirt up your hooter.
