to stop a running nose? Three crucial steps are shown on this diagram (on
the left side).
Not all people get a runny nose due to allergic rhinitis.
In more rare cases, a running nose can be due to a brain trauma. In other
cases, overuse of nasal sprays can lead to a running nose. Certain other
foods (e.g., spices) and other irritants may also trigger this condition.
Obviously, the triggers need to be avoided.
runny nose and allergies can appear only when
one's body and brain O2 levels are much less than the
physiological norm (40 seconds). Usually it is
even less than 20 seconds for the DIY body-O2 test.
Tissue hypoxia is caused by ineffective breathing (too fast and heavy
breathing). This makes the immune system weak and hypersensitive. Additional
causes of low body and brain O2 are chest breathing (which reduces blood
oxygenation) and mouth breathing (which leads to losses of blood levels of CO2
and nitric oxide generated in sinuses).
Pinch your runny nose and walk fast with your running nose pinched.
(Your mouth should be closed all the time.)
You need to get more arterial CO2 to dilate arteries and arterioles (CO2 is the
most potent dilator of arteries and arterioles). You will
probably make about 15-25 steps. While walking, you should hold your
breath until a strong desire to breathe appears.
Afterwards, sit down with your spine totally
straight. After you release your nose, start reduced breathing (breathing
less air than before this exercise). How? Instead of taking your usual big and
frequent inhalations, take a smaller inhalation and using the diaphragm only. Then
relax all muscles for an exhalation and repeat the cycle. Make another
short inhalation and again just relax to exhale. Practice this reduced
breathing while remaining relaxed.
Your purpose is to maintain air hunger (shortage of air) for several minutes
with total relaxation of body muscles. If your brain and body-O2 levels are
low, it is normal that your breath pattern will be frequent during
this exercise. This breathing exercise "how to stop a runny
nose" increases brain and body-O2 content by about 3-5 seconds.
If you practice this home remedy for hours every day, you can expect quick
health recovery. There are many additional lifestyle changes that help to
increase brain and body O2. Study this site for more details.
How to get rid of a running nose during night sleep
need to lie on your left side or chest and relax all bodily
muscles (Sleeping sitting causes less problems
with a runny nose.). Pinch your nose, hold your breath
until air hunger, and then follow the same
instructions for reduced breathing as above.
So that your nose does not get runny again,
you should increase your body O2, using breathing exercises and lifestyle
changes, up to 20 seconds. The same remedy will help you
to fall asleep much faster too.
Get rid of running nose for good
These are conclusions and criteria (below) of over 120 Soviet and
Russian MDs who tested and cured thousands of people with rhinitis
and other conditions leading to a runny nose. (My observations with my
students are the same.) Their main requirement (the exact number for the
body O2 test) is hidden as your bonus content.

- If, in addition to the previous condition, you can avoid your allergic
triggers for about 2-3 months, then this time should desensitize your immune
system to your allergic triggers. Therefore, you can get rid of a runny nose and
all your allergies (to tree pollen, cat proteins and all other triggers).
This is the permanent solution (how
to get rid of runny nose for good) found by medical doctors to
permanently solve problems with a runny nose.

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.
