As I’ve done in the past, I like to give my blog readers valuable snippets of information from my digital products. Now, of course, I can’t give you the whole buffet. People spend their hard-earned money on the materials, but I don’t mind sharing with you guys a chapter or 2! I’m grateful for you guys too 🙂 Let’s look at a 1 key example of sinus congestion and sneezing solutions.
As part of the Homemade Pollution course, I have a bonus document on sinus congestion remedies. You have the chance to get 8 chapters of material explaining easy ways to relieve nasal congestion. In this post, I’ve given you a part of 2 separate chapters. An overview of sinus congestion and sneezing problems, along with helpful food sources.
What is Nasal Congestion?
Everyone reading this book has had nasal congestion at some point in time during their lives, regardless of your age, race, or preexisting health conditions. You know that it’s anything but comfortable, as the very vessels intended for oxygen flow become swollen and impacted with mucus. When you can’t breathe through your nose, you feel like a fish out of water, breathing through your mouth – it’s never a fun feeling like you’re missing out on essential respiration. The truth of the matter is that nasal congestion is a common side effect of colds, flu, and dirty air, like that included in indoor air pollution course. Some people suffer from congestion without any stimulant, known as allergic rhinitis, which affects one-quarter of the world’s population. If you’ve ever had a “stuffy” or blocked nose know that you are not alone. Let’s look at the official definition of this uncomfortable condition below.
What is Nasal Congestion by Definition?
Nasal congestion is the blockage of the nasal passages due to membranes lining the nose becoming inflamed and swollen. Depending upon the severity of the inflammation, nasal congestion can range from a mild annoyance to a life-threatening condition if the swelling extends back down the throat. Nasal congestion can also be a precursor to sinus infections and irritations, which causes swelling of the sinus system throughout the nose, face, and neck. It’s a normal reaction in our bodies as an effort to block out the infection, creating a sensitive situation as our bodies attempt to return to homeostasis.
Home Nasal Congestion Remedies
Of course, you’re reading this book because you want to know about faster, do-it-yourself solutions to treat this kind of congestion. As I’ve already covered, we’re living in toxic, dangerous indoor air that is considered more dangerous than outdoor air. That’s according to a study commissioned by CNBC. This kind of chemical-filled air kick-starts an allergic reaction in your nasal passages, which creates never-ending nasal congestion that can ruin your quality of life. Let’s look at some of the natural nasal relief options available to you. Furthermore, unsuspecting food sources, and how you can create a better quality of life moving forward.
Congestion Relief Food Sources
What about food? As you know, after a hot Indian or spicy Mexican dinner, you can probably feel yourself coughing up phlegm that was hidden in your lungs or oesophagus. Your eyes start to water, sweat starts to come out of your sinus, and your system clears itself of the unwanted mucus. Why? Capsaicin, the compound found in chillies that give them their heat (this can be applied to horseradish, wasabi, etc.), has been proven to ease sinus pain, reduce inflammation, and release blocked mucus. Essentially, eating a hot meal will help your body maintain its flow of mucus. What could be better than that? Some spicy foods to add to your regime include:
Ginger: Besides being spicy, ginger has countless health benefits that can help you fight off infections and sicknesses.
Radishes: Did you know that radishes contain antiviral and antibacterial properties?
Horseradish: You’ll feel an instant tingling sensation after consuming some horseradish.
Raw garlic: Garlic contains allyl thiosulfonate, which offers temporary congestion relief on top of reducing inflammation.
Raw onions: You know how onions make your eyes water? They’ll reduce your inflammation, too.
Spicy mustard: The spicier, the better! Put it on all of your food.
Chillies: As the spiciest on the list, be careful in your administration of chillies to your meals.
