Switching to Paleo/primal stopped my snoring after a life of it. 14-years of marriage and my wife is getting peaceful sleep! But after this study LINKING cancer and snoring, I feel even better about Paleo for one more reason.
What was fixed by Paleo that my snoring got better?
Nope, still snore, still use my CPAP machine. Down 52 lbs in tad over 3 months paleo. Probably need another 50 lbs or so before I'll even consider ditching the machine (I sleep GREAT hooked up to that bad boy, lol). I'm a large stocky/muscular guy though with "no neck" in the traditional sense (bless my Mexican mother as that runs on her side of the family, a the uncles have little to no neck and are very stocky/solid guys). Great body for intimidation/strength factor, but that's all, lol!!!
The husband used to snore, a LOT. And wake me up or keep me from falling asleep.
My husband still snores sometimes, but rarely will he wake me up now with it :D Whether or not it is because he stopped eating the grains or because he lost the weight, it doesn't matter. Something is working and that's all that matters.
I would say dairy, but you said primal, so perhaps you still eat dairy? I would imagine that lots of mucus could contribute to snoring. A friend was just telling me during allergy season, he doesn't drink as much, because drinking increases his snoring and between that and allergies he's miserable.
