Hi Yuanita,


Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.

There are many possibilities that can cause a person to snore quite loudly. This cause can come from abnormalities in the nose, throat area, or also due to an unhealthy lifestyle. Because the possible causes vary greatly, the treatment can also vary.


Need to clarify, what bracelet do you mean? What is the content in the bracelet?


Treatment for snoring is ideally tailored to the cause. So, it cannot be generalized to the use of certain products without first knowing the cause of the snoring. Here are some of the most common causes of snoring in the elderly:

Overweight, obesity
Genetics (congenital) --- having a family history of obstructive sleep apnea

Improper sleeping position (eg supine)
Lack of sleep --- can cause the muscles in the throat to relax
Disorders of the oral cavity, for example thick soft palate, long uvula, large tonsils
Disorders of the nasal cavity, such as nasal septal deviation, nasal congestion
Consumption of alcohol, and so on

It's best if you take your father first to an ENT specialist to identify the cause of his snoring. Then, treatment can be carried out appropriately according to the underlying indication. We do not recommend the use of certain products that have not been medically proven to be effective in treating snoring, especially without consulting a doctor first. If necessary, the doctor will perform tests such as X-rays, CT scans, MRIs, rhinoscopy, laryngoscopy, and so on.


In the meantime, help your dad deal with his complaints by:

Improve sleeping position, namely by tilting to one side or elevating the pillow
If your father has problems with obesity, go on a diet to lose weight
Avoid alcohol
Avoid smoking
Adequate and regular sleep 6-8 hours a day

Hope it helps ya..
