Nasal Irrigation - Mix a solution of 1 cup warm water, teaspoon each of sea salt and bicarbonate of soda. Use a squeeze spray bottle to instill the solution in the nostrils, one side at a time. Repeat this procedure 3-4 times a day as necessary for relief from stuffiness

Avoid all mucous producing foods e.g. dairy, wheat and flour products, and sugar; Eat fresh garlic (grated or chopped fine) over meals, ginger, and chili. These heating spices will help to loosen mucous. You can also apply a heating pad directly over the sinuses (over the cheeks next to the nose and above your eyebrows)

If your mucous is discoloured, I would advise that you see your practitioner for antibiotic therapy

Best of luck
