About the Illness
A lot of mucus in the nose may cause ear infections in children or sinus problems in adults.
Mucus blocking the nasal passage; runny mucus that dribbles from the nose.
It is especially important to teach children to try and wipe their noses instead of blowing them. Blowing the nose can lead to earache and sinus infection. In little children, carefully suck the mucus out of the nose with a suction bulb or syringe without a needle.
Eucalyptus globulus Inhalation good for all
For immediate relief, add one drop of eucalyptus oil to a glass of boiling water and inhale OR pour boiling water over a handful of eucalyptus leaves and use for a steam inhalation.
This will help decongest your nose.
Lemon Juice and Water good for all
Mix 1 tsp fresh lemon juice with 1 tbsp water.
Cup in the palm of hand and sniff up nostrils.
It will burn slightly and mouth will fill with mucus.
Then spit out and keep spitting until the mucus stops.
Food and Nutrition Advice
Avoid mucus-forming foods (dairy products, eggs and wheat).
