Does ‘him indoors’ keep you awake with his snoring? Well, help is at hand, compliments of the Aborigine s’ strange sounding instrument – the didgeridoo.
Lovely word that – didgeridoo. Do you didgeridoo? Actually I digeridon’t, I prefer chocolate darling.
I know, silly me.
But not as silly as the report I read recently on the healing powers of sound therapy.
A Swiss study published in the British Medical Journal found that playing a didgeridoo daily helped people with sleep apnoea and snoring.
It’s thought the breathing techniques needed to play it strengthen the muscles in the upper airways.
A control group played the didgeridoo for 25 minutes, six days a week for four months and there was significant improvement.
Eee fancy that. No snorer’s house should be without one.
