6 natural solutions for breathing problems
There are many natural solutions that can help people overcome colds, flu, allergy season and respiratory infections. Symptoms caused by pollen allergy, cold, flu can be successfully eliminated with proper diet and herbal preparations. Pollen allergy or pollen fever is often accompanied by a stuffy nose, narrowing of the eyes and sneezing. Nasal drops from the pharmacy should not be used indefinitely. They can be applied once or twice a day for a shorter period. Otherwise, side effects such as dryness of the mucous membranes and a paradoxically stuffy nose occur. Namely, excessive and long-term use of drops causes dependence of the nasal mucosa. Weaning often takes longer than the problem that caused nasal congestion. Excessive use of drops can also impair heart function and raise blood pressure especially in people with diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
There are no pharmacological substances and drugs in natural drops. These drops make breathing much easier. No side effects have been reported. The only thing that matters is the proper use of natural drops / essences. Empty your nose completely before use (by blowing or using a nasal aspirator). Lie on the bed. Place your head below body level. Pour two drops into both nasal cavities. It is important not to raise your head immediately, but to stay in that position for 15-20 seconds for the active ingredients to do the job.
