Stuffy nose clear in 1 min with easy breathing exercise!

How to clear stuffy nose (Instructions)

You can clear your stuffy nose fast, even at night and with allergies, using this simple 100% natural home remedy (breathing exercise) that increase your body O2.

Sit down comfortably.  Breathe lightly and relax.  After a small breath out (don’t try to empty your lungs), pinch your nose, keep your mouth closed, and hold your breath as long as you can, comfortably.  Nod your head gently up and down, being careful not to hurt your neck. When you can no longer hold the breath, start to breath again through your less stuffy nose, as gently as possible, keeping your mouth closed.  Relax your body, especially your abdominal muscles.

After about 30 seconds of light breathing, take a small breath in, a small breath out  and repeat the breath hold, nodding your head again.  Repeat this sequence until you can breath comfortably through your nose. It works for over 90% of cases.

If you click on the next tab “Video”, you can see video instructions for this blocked nose remedy and how to clear a stuffy nose quickly.

There is a similar remedy, which is little more effective since it involves walking with a nose pinched. You can find it here as Remedy 2: blocked nose remedy.

This video explains how to cure a stuffy nose really fast.

How does it work?

If you breathe all the time through your mouth you will breathe more than you need to, and reduce the carbon-dioxide levels in your lungs and your bloodstream.  This causes congestion of the nasal passages and increases the flow of mucus among other things, causing your nose to block.  The exercise, by restricting the amount of air you breathe, reverses this effect, reducing the flow of mucus and opening the nasal passages.

When you hold your breath and do some physical movement such as the exercise above, your body accumulates more carbon dioxide (CO2). CO2 is a powerful vasodilator and dilator of smooth muscles, including those in the sinuses, bronchi and bronchioles. As a result, airways dilate and this leads to the quick relief of nasal congestion. Additional effects are due to dilation of arteries and arterioles when arterial CO2 is increased. CO2-induced vasodilation improves blood-and-oxygen supply to your stuffy nose (see CO2-related links for clinical studies).

Both of these mechanisms, vasodilation and dilation of airways, have physiological similarities since the expansion mechanism is based on relaxation of all smooth muscles of the human body due to the more optimal CO2 content in the arterial blood. Hence, the exercise addresses primary stuffy nose causes.

Why are stuffy noses so common?

Numerous medical studies have shown that modern people or “normal subjects” breathe about twice as much air than required for normal physiological function.  This “overbreathing” or “hyperventilation”, which causes a lack of CO2 in the lungs and bloodstream. constricts blood vessels and airways.

In addition, hypocapnia (CO2 deficiency) creates tissue hypoxia (low body-oxygen content) and suppresses the immune system. As a result, your sinuses become the breeding ground for bacteria, viruses, fungi and other pathogens. It has been shown in Buteyko’s research that the reason that one’s nose gets blocked or stuffy is due to a CO2 deficiency that in turn is caused by breathing too much.

The permanent stuffy nose cure

The solution to all these constriction problems is train your body to breathe less all the time.  This will permanently increase your body CO2-and-oxygen content.

There is a simple body-oxygen test you can do.  You will need a stop-watch or clock with a second hand.  Sit as you would for the nose-clearing exercise, breathe gently through your nose for a minute or two, take a small breath in, a small breath out, hold your nose, keep your mouth closed and start timing.  When it becomes uncomfortable, release your nose, record the time, and continue to breathe gently through your nose.  If your score is higher than 20 seconds, your nose will be clear all the time. If your body oxygen level drops below 20 s (e.g., after meals, habitual mouth-breathing, sleeping on your back, allergies, etc.), you will start to mouth-breathe if you are not doing so already, causing the build up of pathogens, constriction of the airways and the other effects associated with overbreathing, and you will again need to clear the congestion.

In order to achieve a good body-oxygen level, you will have to change your breathing habits. Your breathing needs to become slower and lighter. This goal is achieved by practicing appropriate breathing exercises and following a more natural lifestyle.
