Dr. Levitin’s Response to “How Can I Stop Snoring?” Article


Missing in this article are the alternatives to traditional nasal/snoring surgery. I wished the author had done more research and interviewed an Ear, Nose, and Throat (ENT) practice that focuses on office-based approaches to snoring and nasal obstruction. The majority of clinical snoring is not related to moderate or severe OSA , so surgical options or CPAP would not apply to more than 80% of snoring patients (including those with borderline OSA) with nasal obstruction that seek out medical care.

I am a board-certified Otolaryngologist and over the years realized that while most surgeons are looking for surgical patients, most patients are looking for (and prefer) non-surgical options. As a result, I have completely rebuilt my approach to snoring dedicated to avoiding surgery entirely. By focusing on an office-based, non-surgical approach, I found that I can maximize nasal breathing that can eliminate or improve more than 50% of most snoring- permanently. And the kicker: more than 80% of my patients never require additional surgery or appliances and breathe just fine.

Don’t just take my word for this; read James Nestor’s brilliant book, “Breath”, that takes a deep dive into the “lost art” of nasal breathing.
