How to Unblock a Stuffy Nose in 1 Min (Breathing Remedy)
nose and mouth breathing are classical signs of hyperventilation (see the image
with effects of overbreathing on brain oxygenation). This simple
breathing exercise (the most natural remedy) to clear
a stuffy nose was developed by Russian doctors. Around
200 MDs taught it to hundreds of their patients with stuffed
noses. Most patients, according to the clinical experience
of these doctors, could get rid of the blocked nose

breathing or breathing less air, without taking deep breaths, and keep the mouth closed. Here are details for this great home remedy.
taking a big inhalation, take a smaller inhale and then relax all
muscles for exhalation, especially the upper chest, diaphragm, and other respiratory
muscles. Take another small inhalation and again relax. With each
inhalation, keep practicing this reduced or shallow breathing while remaining
Your purpose is to maintain a sensation of air hunger for about 2-3 min with
a coplete relaxation of all muscles of the body. Your breathing may
become more frequent during
this reduced breathing or shallow breathing, but this is okay.
The success rate for this blocked nose remedy is over 90%. The results
are better if a person is able to perform diaphragmatic breathing during

Here are additional details that lead to success if you decide to try
this great home remedy at night during sleep.
Lie on your left side or chest and completely relax all body muscles. Pinch
your nose and follow the above instructions related to breath holding
and reduced breathing to get a quick relief. If your nose keeps

levels up to 20 or more seconds. With this amount of oxygen in the body,
your nose will stay unblocked all the time.
Breathing patterns and congested nose (sinusitis)
Our automatic breath patterns have a powerful effect on our cell
oxygenation and blood supply to all tissues of the body sinuses included.
As soon as your breathing becomes a little
deeper or faster, oxygen delivery to body cells decreases. What are the possible
breathing negatively affects hundreds of physiological processes and reactions in
the human body. Sleeping on one's back makes breathing almost 2 times
heavier (in terms of minute ventilation), reducing body oxygenation. As a result,
supine sleep often leads to mouth breathing, sleep apnea, snoring, anxiety,
panic attacks, headaches, cramps, and other symptoms and problems.

American Journal of Rhinology, 2005 Nov-Dec; vol 19(6): p. 607-11.
Waitemata District Health Board, Auckland, New Zealand.
BACKGROUND: This article evaluates the prevalence of HVS
(hyperventilation syndrome) in patients who continue to complain of
chronic nasal congestion, despite an apparently adequate surgical
result and appropriate medical management.
. . .
RESULTS: All patients had an elevated respiratory rate (with >18
breaths/minute) with an upper thoracic breathing pattern.
. . .
CONCLUSION: HVS should be included in the differential diagnosis of
patients presenting with nasal congestion, particularly after failed
nasal surgery. . . Additional surgery may
not necessarily be the answer in HVS (hyperventilation syndrome)
for patients complaining of nasal congestion.
