Home Remedys For A Stuffy Nose?

Thursday, July 14, 2011

I feel ok (knock on all the wood around) except for this head cold, which has plugged up my nose something fierce. Also, for some reason I've been craving sugar. No idea if its related to the cold or not. Most importantly, its tough to breathe through my mouth while doing things like talking, chewing food, sleeping, etc... so I'm soliciting advice!! Ive stocked up on butternut squash soup (out of chicken noodle ATM, but this has more vitimins anyway) and tissues.

What home (or easily available, Over The Counter) remedies do you use to clear a clogged head?

    The chinese boil chopped ginger root with brown sugar and water. Tastes yummy too! Hope you're not trying to lose weight while you're not well !

    I buy Traditional Medicinals 'Gypsy Cold Cure' herbal tea. I brew up a cup and inhale the vapors between sips using my hand to creat a makeshift steamtent. You can use any peppermint tea.

    I use a neti pot to clear the stuffies!! If you don't have one you can ( as long as you are careful) put warm water in a cup add some salt and mix it up then try to sniff it up the one nostril remember to spit it out! BLECH! Then blow and do the other side-- I LOVE my neti pot I think it was $15 at Walgreens and had about 50 packets of saline mix to use
