Herbal Remedies

If you are looking for natural mucus relief the cause of the problem can be twofold. Most, if not all of us, have had a nasty cold at one stage in our lives resulting in a stuffed or runny nose and the coughing that comes with it.

While it should be a general known fact that antibiotics are no good in treating these symptoms a lot of people still insist on taking antibiotics while they should just let the body take care of battling the cold naturally and get rid of mucus in throat.

In this case excessive mucus secretion is a symptom and there do exist of course natural remedies or over the counter products to treat or alleviate your breathing or coughing symptoms. People looking for homeopathic or holistic remedies to get some natural mucus relief might want to visit where all the products on offer are natural and meant to provide fast-acting symptomatic relief.

It’s a whole different ballgame however if you are suffering from allergies which affect your breathing or irritate your sinuses. There are of course products out there to also treat allergies but their effectiveness will very much depend on your particular condition.

Air Purifiers

As I am writing this my wife has been suffering from a very dry nose and constant coughing for the last 2 weeks. Two weeks ago she went to the doctor because she was unable to go to work because of a nasty cold. After a few days she was fine and working again, but the coughing and irritation didn’t stop.

At the next visit to the doctor she got a prescription for antibiotics. This has been a week now and her condition hasn’t really changed. What also hasn’t changed is the amount of visible pollen floating through the air. I am not a doctor, but we are pretty sure that this pollen and dry air has a lot more to do with her symptoms and that no antibiotics can take care of pollen in the air.

In this case an air purifier could bring welcome and also natural mucus relief as they are designed to filter particles out of the air. Most people who are allergic to airborne irritants like pollen or pet dander will immediately experience the benefits of a quality air purifier. For the few of you where odor or chemical smells pose a problem, make sure to pick an air purifier with a carbon filter.

Nasal Irrigation Systems

Another, maybe not so well-known, method to get rid of the mucus in your nose and throat are the nasal irrigation systems. Nasal irrigation has proven to be effective against certain conditions of chronic sinusitis and can also bring relief against the common cold or even hay-fever. It basically involves flushing the nasal cavities with a saline solution and has been practiced for centuries in countries like India.

The point is that depending on your affliction, natural mucus relief can be accomplished by taking herbal remedies or using electrical items such as an air purifier or a nasal irrigation system.

Electronic Cigarettes

E-cigs are a relatively new product on the market. A lot of controversy about this product exists not in the least because the FDA seems to do everything in its power to get electronic cigarettes banned or at least severely restrict their usage. Everyone knows that smoking regular cigarettes can cause cancer or cardio vascular diseases and while it might be true that the long term use of e-cigs has not been documented so far there  can be no doubt that inhaling water vapour is a lot healthier than toking on a traditional combustible cigarette which comes with thousands of carcinogens with each puff you take.
