After a few weeks of living in a Bhutan mountain village, Dr. Wallace found his answer. On the first night, he struggled to breathe because of the thin air on the mountain and he barely managed to sleep.
On the second night, his host handed him a wooden clip that the villagers wore it on their nose when they went to bed.

“Because my snoring woke up the entire house the first night and she wasn't going to put up with it for another night!” - Dr. Tom Wallace
