Nasal Congestion: Cause and Total Relief Treatment
Cause of nasal congestion
Relief and treatment of nasal congestion requires elimination of its cause: chronic hyperventilation that constricts blood vessels, reduces oxygen delivery to cells, and suppresses the immune system. Nasal congestion (also known as a "stuffy nose") occurs only in people who have low body-oxygen levels (less than 20 seconds for the body-oxygen test). Tissue hypoxia is caused by chronic hyperventilation, upper chest breathing, and habitual mouth breathing.
While main superficial causes of nasal congestion include bacterial and viral infections, low body-oxygen content, on a cell level, is the key factor that suppresses the immune system and creates conditions for bacterial infections and/or allergic reactions.
Stuffy nose can also be caused by allergies to some airborne substances (e.g., as in case of hay fever). However, even in this case, the hypersensitive state of the immune system is caused by chronic overbreathing. As a result, the cause of nasal congestion is the same, as you can see on the right diagram.
Natural nasal congestion relief
Over 90% of people with nasal congestion can get a relief in less than 2 minutes if they slow down their heavy breathing using a simple breathing exercise. This easy respiratory exercise to clear a stuffy nose was invented by Soviet MDs practicing one popular breathing method. More than 180 MDs taught this most natural remedy to thousands of their patients with asthma, sinusitis, hay fever, chronic mouth breathing, rhinitis, and many other conditions. This treatment and remedy also works for children, pregnant women, and those with symptoms of fatigue. The exercise can be applied before night-time sleep as well. Here is the link for the breathing exercise " How to get rid of a stuffy nose" in less than 2 minutes.
If you slow down your automatic breathing (or get it closer to the medical norm) and achieve more than 20 seconds for the body-oxygen test, your frequent respiratory infections will disappear. Hay fever eradication requires over 30 s for the body-oxygen test and avoidance of triggers for desensitization of the immune system.

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.
