People who are allergic to pet fur or pollen, or to any other things, know how annoying it is to always have a tingling throat and congested nostrils that make the breathing so difficult. And you don’t have to suffer from allergies to experience the same symptoms of disturbed breathing.
Did you sometimes have an itchy throat or a jammed nose for no reason? This might be because there is an enormous number of particles and pollutants floating in the air which we inhale daily that cause us to experience these reactions.
Luckily, there is something that you can do about it. There is one natural cure for congestion that you supposedly have already in your storage room. But, first, let’s look into what causes the swelling of your airways.
The reason is HISTAMINE.
Histamine is the natural response of our body to allergens, such as dust, cigarette smoke, mold, or chemicals that are contained in cleaning products.
Whenever you inhale an allergen, your immune system releases histamine into your nose and lungs which is then attached to the blood vessels receptors and causes them to enlarge and dilate. Histamine is also responsible for the swelling, redness, and itching in your nose.
Antihistamines are medications used for curing the reactions from histamine. They vary from allergy shots to steroids and are usually taken to reduce or stop the release of histamine that causes allergic reactions.
But, even if they do alleviate your allergic symptoms, they go with many side-effects, such as dizziness, dry mouth, vomiting, drowsiness, nausea, moodiness or restlessness, confusion, blurred vision, or inability to urinate.
If those side-effects scared you, don’t worry – there is one completely safe and natural remedy.
OREGANO AS A LUNG CLEANSER
I am sure that everyone is familiar with the benefits that oregano provides, but did you know that it is a natural lung cleanser?
Oregano is rich in terpenes, flavonoids, and carvacrol which all serve as natural decongestants. Also, it contains rosmarinic acid that is commonly used for treating allergies because it reduces the swelling and the building up of fluids.
And the best way to consume oregano is by drinking diluted oregano oil. Take a sip of water and hold it in your mouth. Then, tilt back your head with your mouth open and squeeze 2-3 drops of oregano oil in your mouth and swallow it.
However, don’t do this more than 3 times a week because oregano has strong antibacterial effects and it may kill the good bacteria in your mouth as well as the bad.
