It is also becoming more prevalent among children, largely due to lack of breastfeeding and consumption of processed foods. Snoring is related to the problem, which is caused by a restriction in the airways. The vibrations produced as the air struggles to pass the soft palate, uvula, tongue, tonsils or muscles of the back of the throat cause snoring.

Fortunately, there are ways to treat all of these types of breathing problems that do not necessarily involve using a CPAP (Continuous Positive Airflow Pressure)  machine. Two treatment alternatives that offer great hope are oral myofascial therapy and learning how to breathe properly while being awake.
