Cause of nasal congestion

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.

Brain hyperventilation effects 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.
