How to clear your blocked sinuses in minutes12 min read
Are you healthy? What natural things do you do when “flu season” comes around to give your immune system a boost?
Having clogged sinuses isn’t fun. You can’t breath, you can’t smell, your head hurts, and your voice sounds funny. Finding relief when you have clogged sinuses is usually like finding a million dollars on the ground — it’s amazing!
The causes for nasal congestion can range greatly, and you don’t have to be sick to be congested. Many people will experience congestion from allergies, temperatures, dust, smoking, spicy food, and air particles.
When you experience an allergic reaction, it triggers an immune response in your body. One common allergic condition that can cause both throat irritation and nasal congestion is allergic rhinitis, also known as hay fever.
Allergic rhinitis occurs when your immune system overreacts to certain allergens in the environment, such as pollen, dust mites, pet dander, or mold spores. When you come into contact with these allergens, your body releases chemicals, including histamine, which leads to inflammation and irritation in the nasal passages and throat.
The inflammation in the throat caused by allergic rhinitis can result in symptoms such as a scratchy or sore throat, itching, and discomfort. This throat irritation can also contribute to a feeling of congestion and blockage in the sinuses, overcoming dry throat allergies is important in order to prevent further health problems.
Simple method to open your blocked sinuses:
You simply need to sit down and get your hands ready for the following steps.
-While sitting with your head and body on about a 45 degree angle, turn your head sideways and rub your sternocleidomastoid muscle downward four or five times. You can find the muscle right beneath your ear running down your neck to your collarbone. Do this on both sides of your neck to help relax your neck.
– Take your index fingers, locate the hard, bony part of the upper sides of your nose, and move downward toward the soft part on the side of your nose where the bone ends. Begin massaging this area in a circular motion with as much pressure as you can for about 20 seconds. Once completed, rub the muscles from the side of your nose down and toward your cheekbones to relax them.
– Take your index fingers and run them under the inside orbit bone above your eyes until you find a notch in the bone called the super orbital notch. It is usually just above the centre of the eye. Massage that notch in a circular motion with as much pressure as you can handle for about 20 seconds. Once done, massage your forward with both hands starting in the centre of your forehead and pulling outwards towards your temples.
That’s it! Once you have gone through this process you should notice a lot of relief in your sinuses and should be able to blow your nose quite easily. You may have to repeat this process again, but play with it and see what works for you.
Massaging is a great relief for any pain. But you need to remember that unprofessional operation can make your situation worse. Therefore it is advised to consult a reliable wellness clinic like the CC Massage Therapy and take the help of experienced and skilled practitioners.
