Natural remedies for nasal congestion
I suffer from a lot of hayfever and nasal congestion. I'm tired of using decongestants and cortisone sprays. I seem to be worse at night when I lie down. I'm also concerned about the long-term implications that these medications will cause. I would prefer natural, homeopathic remedies but still need something that will be quite effective. What could I try?

Hello Congested

The problem could be due to your diet or lack of certain enzymes and flora you need in your gut. Often post nasal drip is due to a small intestinal problem. It could even be the liver that is in need of help.

Please make an appoinment to see a homeopath to help you one on one. The medicines you have been using will have side effects and can be avoided with natural treatment.

Please do visit the following website for more information: Open the Health Info page and look up Healthy Nutrition as well as Hay Fever. The article written on colds and flu will have more info on the congestion problem you suffer from.

Kind regards.
