Understanding NASAL CONGESTION
Most often, a health problem like a sinus infection or a common cold develop a stuffy nose as a symptom. However, these health problems can also be chemical exposures, environmental irritants, hay fever, allergies or nasal polyps, (noncancerous growths on the nasal passages or sinuses due to inflammation).
Irritants, bacteria or viruses cause irritation to the lining in the sinus cavities, and your nasal passage swells and gets blocked up, causing difficulties in breathing. Although nasal congestions usually do not last more than a week, they are quite unpleasant. That is why this article will give you a way to relieve this kind of breathing difficulties in an instant!
Relieve the sinus infection in only 20 seconds!
In order to do so, you just need to follow these simple procedures:
Push your tongue against the top of your mouth and place your thumb between your eyebrows. Now, apply pressure with your thumb for 20 seconds, and you will cause the sinuses to begin to drain.
Explanation of the technique
According to Lisa DeStefano, D.O., an assistant professor at the Michigan State University College of Osteopathic Medicine, this technique causes the vomer bone to rock back and forth. The vomer bone is a bone that runs through the nasal passages to the mouth. The back and forth motion loosens congestion, which allows the sinuses to drain.
However, if by any case, you would rather not try this technique, do not choose to visit the nearest drug store for a solution! Instead, try the following natural remedies to relive your nasal congestion:
- NASAL SALINE RINSE
Although this is not the most comfortable solution for this issue, many people choose to do a saline rinse to clear up their sinuses. If you have never done a saline rinse before, ask someone for assistance and read and follow these instructions.
Prepare the rinse by mixing a quarter teaspoon of sea salt/pickling salt with one cup of warm water. The, you should pour it through one nostril and out the other to clear the sinuses.
- OREGANO OIL
If you have it at home, or you can find oregano oil in somewhere near your home, it can be your solution to this problem. You should simply ingest it, or steam it over the stove and inhale it to effectively clear up your sinuses.
Curcumin in turmeric contributes to this spice’s anti-inflammatory properties. Treat the nasal congestion that is blocking your sinuses by sprinkling some turmeric on your next meal.
- ORGANIC APPLE CIDER VINEGAR
Apple cider vinegar is another way to relieve your sinus issues. You could mix half a cup of apple cider vinegar with half a cup of water, heat it on the stove, and inhale the steam with your mouth and eyes closed.
You can also do the following procedure and your sinuses should clear up in a few days. Mix eight ounces of warm water with two tablespoons of apple cider vinegar and one tablespoon of honey, or take one tablespoon of apple cider vinegar three times daily.
