What Causes A Stuffy Nose?

February 28, 2012

Inflamed Sinuses

Most people think a stuffy nose is caused by excess mucous blocking the airways. In reality, it’s quite different. Nasal congestion usually occurs from inflammation. When an infection or allergen irritates the nasal cavity, this irritation causes an increase of blood flow, which then causes the blood vessels to expand.

Why Hypertonic Rinses Work

Most nasal rinsing devices teach you to make what is called an isotonic rinse (about a 1/2 teaspoon of mineral salt to 10 oz of water).  This means there are equal amounts of salt in the saline solution as in the cell walls of the body, and it comes close to the body’s pH.  This rinse helps to stimulate the cilia and flush out excess mucous and particulate matter. Most expert neti pot rinsers know that if it burns when they rinse, they haven’t used...Read More
