Almost all of us have heard the rough, coarse noise of snoring.
It is certainly not going to be a pleasant night for you if someone sleeping near you is snoring. There are are many causes of snoring which include being overweight, old age and also sleep apnea.
There is no definite medication or pill that can cure snoring as of yet. But with the advancement of technology, a new remarkable invention is here which claims to cure you of snoring completely. It is called the snoring ring!
The question now is that whether it actually helps or is it just a hoax? Let’s find out.
What is a Snoring Ring?
The snoring ring looks almost like a normal ring with the exception that it has two small bumps on its inner side and a small gap.
The ring should be worn at least 30 minutes before going to sleep to achieve the best results. There is also a warning that says the ring should not be worn for more than 12 hours each day.
Once you put on the ring, the ring exerts pressure on particular parts of your body through the two bumps and the flat surfaces. The ring uses the ancient Chinese technique (3500 years old approximately) of acupressure to put a stop on your snoring.
How Does It Work?
The technique is based on the theory that all parts and organs of the body are interconnected by pressure points through pathways called meridians. If there are any obstructions in these pathways it will cause diseases and your health will deteriorate.
But the obstructions can be eased and removed by applying pressure to the correct pressure points. The snoring ring applies pressure to the base of the finger with the help of the two small bumps. This pressure is said to clear the nasal passage.
As a result, the wearer of the ring can breathe much more easily with their nose and does have to snore through their mouth.
Snoring Ring Benefits
So firstly let’s talk about the positive sides of the snoring ring.
The snoring ring is much cheaper than the other available alternatives for curing or reducing snoring. A snoring ring will cost you just £30.
It is available in various sizes such as small, medium and large. There are many companies that manufacture snoring rings. You can compare them and easily buy the one that you like best. Most companies also provide a 30 day money back guarantee.
Another significant advantage is that the snoring ring has no side effects.
If you take medication for your snoring, it will certainly have some side effects but snoring rings have no side effects at all. You just wear it on your finger and that is pretty much all you have to do.
On the company websites, you can also see various testimonies by consumers who claim to have been cured of snoring with the help of the rings.
Some celebrities have also said that they have been completely cured by using the snoring rings. Several companies have advertised themselves as being “clinically proven to work based on studies” or “tested and recommended by physicians”.
The Reality About Snoring Rings
Doesn’t all of this sound too good to be true?
There have been complaints by various organizations and also lawsuits have been filed against the snoring ring companies. The complaints and lawsuits are specifically targeted on the snoring ring advertisements.
They have raised concerns that the claims about snoring rings having a “proven history of successful drug-free treatment of snoring,” or being “tested and recommended by doctors” are mostly if not completely false.
They also say that the snoring rings are becoming so popular because such a high level of advertising and the product being sold at major retail chains bring a certain amount of validity to the customers.
Many user reviews of the products say that although there have not been any side effects but it has not helped with the snoring either.
So when it comes down to it, the reality is that there is no medical proof or evidence that support the snoring rings despite all the hype around it.
