What are ways to get rid of a stuffy nose? Natural Home remedies?

So since the 8 grade ( now a graduate of high school) My nose has been stopped up. I think it’s pretty clear that I may have some type of Allergy infection it’s been like this since 2008. Which means for about five years or so I have not been able to breathe correctly. Sometimes my nose isn’t stuffy as bad but every since Sunday I have had a “cold like” experience with my nose being stuffy and it gets really annoying to have to need a tissue every few minutes/seconds. It also gets annoying to wake up out of your good nights sleep because you need to blow your nose and can’t breathe.

Before I go off spending hundreds of dollars on prescription medication that rarely works , or thousands of dollars on a surgery to get rid of this infection what are some natural home remedies for me to try to remove the stuffy nose in both of my nostrils?

As the weather gets colder it tends to get worse so please help me out if you can 🙁 I’m the type of person that likes to try out all possible ways before doing the extreme.

vti answers:

You could easily find Natural Remedies by searching on www.duckduckgo.com
Just type in the search: natural remedies for stuffy nose. (or whatever you need) and you may find answers like this:
Allergies and a cold/sinus have very similar symptoms.
Either ways, you could “At Your Own Risk” try some of these Natural Remedies:
**Read the information on the link below before attempting.**
1) Cayenne Pepper Tea: Boil a cup of water, or use cool water, add 1/4(one quarter) teaspoon of Cayenne Pepper Powder, if hot, let it cool a minute, then mix well and sip it till it’s all gone, or just gargle with it if you just have sore throat or if it’s too spicy to drink(less effective).
Your nose/throat/stomach will thank you soon after the third sip. Lol
2) Ginger Tea: Bring to a boil a cup of water with 6+ fresh slices of ginger, let it cool for a minute(add 1tsp of honey/optional) and sip it till it’s all gone. You may also chew/eat a slice or more,
if the pungent feeling is too strong, just add a pinch of dry Thyme.(ginger is also good for Nausea, Dizziness, Anxiety & Stress).
3) Chew/eat half clove of garlic (raw) ….. Then drink half a cup of warm water.
4) Add 1 tablespoon of Apple Cider Vinegar (raw-unfiltered) to half a glass of water and drink it.
5)Eat some Cardamon seeds …..
6)Take some time to eat some Thyme …..
7)Eat some Turmeric ….
8)Eat some Aloe Vera gel ….
9) ….Repeat any of the above every 6 to 12 hrs. Even after symptoms have subsided. (health boost).
The above remedies are also helpful for acid/reflux/heartburn/gas/stuffy nose/sore throat/cold & sinus & allergies symptoms.

After all, reading might/could lead to … Knowledge. ?;-)
Use Q-tips to gently clean inside the ears. Too much earwax build up can cause all sorts of illness.
Also, if you eat some Yogurt with Active Bacteria’s Culture, it might help too. (if you’re not allergic to milk/dairy products).
When in doubt, consult your doctor.
I hope you find your cure today.
Have a healthy happy life. 🙂
P.S. — Don’t forget to .. Spread This New Knowledge …. And not the illness. 🙂

Donald asks…

What is the best way to relieve heartburn?

I am a type 1 diabetic and have heartburn literally every night. I took Zantac for a while and it helped but now it doesn’t. I don’t even eat foods that could trigger it. What is the best way to relieve it? Certain medicine or a home remedy?

vti answers:

I went to the Dr. A got a prescription, which you should too if it’s really bad like mine was.

Before I was able to go to the Dr. Milk helped with the burn if you puke it up at times.

Tums Suck and Taste terrible, but they stop the burn when in your throat as well. After a while they stopped working for me though.

It was rare, but once in a while warm tea would help.

That’s all I have though =/ I don’t know anything that will stop it completely.

Helen asks…

Is there a home remedy for heartburn prevention?

I have heartburn everyday. Zantac works really great but I don’t want to keep buying it forever. Is there something I can do without medicine?

vti answers:

1. Try eating five or six smaller meals a day rather than three big ones. An easy way to keep these meals small is by simply limiting your portion sizes.

2. Observe your diet: Your body might digest fats far slower than either protein or carbohydrates. The longer food sticks around in your stomach, the fuller you will feel after eating them. Unfortunately, a full stomach puts a lot of pressure against your lower esophageal sphincter – LES for short (the valve that connects your esophagus to your stomach). The extra pressure on a leaky LES will likely lead to acid reflux. Not only that, but fats are harder to digest, which means that your stomach needs to produce even more stomach acid in order to break them down.

Charles asks…

What is the best cure for acid reflux/heartburn during the third trimester?

Hi everyone, I’m 31 weeks pregnant & suffering from extremely bad heartburn/acid indigestion. It’s mainly super bad at night & I tried taking tums & Zantac for it & neither seems to work very well! Cold water seems to “cool” it down temporarily but drinking water at night is t the greatest idea for me because it’s causing more trips to the bathroom which means less sleep 🙁 does anyone have any suggestions or at home remedies for me? Any advice would be greatly appreciated, thanks 🙂

vti answers:

Tums!
And even a simple acid reducer works wonders!
Also, try no to eat after 7 pm, for that cause heart-burns.

Richard asks…

Is there a home remedy good for heartburn?

I never used to get heartburn before but have been having it almost every night for the past week. Last night was just awful and it felt as if my food was in my throat and wouldnt go down. Any suggestions?

vti answers:

Baking soda dissolved in water will help to neutralize stomach acid.
Ginger is another remedy for heartburn and also nausea.
Since these symptoms are new, and are not going away, you may want to consult a dr.
Hope you feel better soon.
