Congestion (Mucous)
By Steven Horne, RH (AHG) & Kimberly Balas, ND

See also Bronchial Congestion, Sinus Congestion and Lymphatic Congestion

Excessive mucous collected in the nasal and/or lung passages causes congestion, which can interfere with breathing. The lymphatics can also become congested, resulting in swollen lymph nodes, earaches, sore throats and frequent respiratory infections.

Decongestants and expectorants are used to break up mucus and help to expel it from the body. It is important to understand that expectorant and decongestant remedies will not necessarily dry up the sinuses. Since they promote breakup of congestion and the expulsion of mucus, they may cause a temporary increase in drainage as the lungs and sinuses clear out irritants.

The long-term solution to congestion involves normalizing the intestinal tract. Eliminate allergy-causing foods from the diet.

Enzymes such as Proactazyme Plus or Protease will help the body break down food better, which results in less congestion.

A colon cleanse such as the Tiao He Cleanse can also be beneficial.

The following are general suggestions for congestion.
