In a previous post I mentioned how to get rid of nose hairs, In this post I wanted to focus on how to get Rid of a Blocked nose…? In particular a blocked nose that is not from a cold and refuses to leave without help. An Issue that effects many.
About a year ago today, I had this persistent blocked nose Issue that used to drive me crazy. In fact It used to be embarrassing how many times I would sniff a day. I tried decongestants, anti allergy tablets, you name but nothing seemed to work properly. Until finally I tried a home made saline solution with warm water in the nose.
It took a couple of weeks of doing it a few times a day however over time it got rid of my blocked nose completely that had been effecting me every day and the best aspect about it was that it is a natural and cheap solution to the problem.. Below are my steps on how I got rid or a persistent blocked Nose and hopefully I can help you too..
Saline Solution for the Nose – 1/4 to 1/2 A Teaspoon of salt per 200ml of good warm water.
How to get rid of a Blocked Nose Steps
1 ) How to get rid of a Blocked Nose – First of all prepare or purchase a quality saline solution, to make yourself just buy table salt and purchase some clean water such as spring water I used. Use an eye dropper bottle I recommend for later and add approximately one quarter to half a teaspoon to about 200ml of the spring water warm and let sit until all salt is dissolved…
2 ) How to get rid of a Blocked Nose – Towel – Grab a towel and the solution and go to the bedroom, lay down on the bed with your head hanging sort of off the edge and the towel over the top part of the chest. The towel is to catch the saline liquid when you sit up and to not make a mess.. Now lay back with nose off edge of bed so your nose should be completely almost level upside down in order to catch and hold the saline solution you prepared.
3 ) How to get rid of a Blocked Nose – Saline in the Nose Time – Add the saline solution to nose, now it may sting a tiny bit for a split second, this is normal and i find it makes the eyes water similar to like being dumped in the waves at the beach.
4 ) How to get rid of a Blocked Nose – Time and Patience – Leave in for about 45 to 60 seconds and then slowly sit up, you will feel the saline start to exit and drain from the nose and there should be almost a bit of immediate relief.. This is the beginning.
5 ) How to get rid of a Blocked Nose – Let the Saline heal – Sit for a while and let the saline completely leave the nose and allow the salt to heal the inflammation in the nose from it being blocked for so long.. After about an hour repeat again as desired and then everyday do a few times a day or if the blocked nose comes back..
6 ) How to get rid of a Blocked Nose – Repeat when Necessary – After about 2 weeks of nose clearing, you should feel the results.. If not then it may be time to see a nose specialist.. I hope I have helped you get rid of your blocked nose as it has helped me.. For each batch of saline made it is best to make a new batch every 24 hours.
