    If your pALS is in the early stages of experiencing breathing or voice issues, this Consumer Reports article on snoring cessation may be of interest to you.

    According to the article, “Snoring occurs when soft tissue in your throat partly blocks the airway and airflow causes the tissue to vibrate, producing the telltale noise. Some research suggests that strengthening the mouth and tongue may help prevent snoring.”

    “Researchers in Brazil found that volunteers who performed the simple moves daily over three months reduced their snoring frequency by 36 percent and the intensity of snores by 59 percent compared with those who didn’t do the exercises.”

    “By contrast, a group of people who wore nasal-dilator strips to sleep saw only minimal improvements. The short exercise routine, done three times a day, includes moves that the researchers say can be done after brushing your teeth or even while driving your car.”
