Spring and summer time are know for obvious reasons as the allergy season.
New blossoms come out, followed by leaves and seeds, and grasses grow prolifically, pushing up their seed heads, which then are scattered by the wind, only to find their way into the nostrils of everyone who has allergies.
Does this sound like your life experience? Sneezing and runny noses driving you mad?
Quite apart from the irritation and frustration that this brings, it also finds its way into the bedroom in the guise of snoring.
When pollen and airborne irritants enter our nose and mouth, the body recognises them as being foreign, and creates a mucus or secretion to 'capture and contain' the invading particles. When we blow our nose or sneeze, this is to expel the secretions from the body which is the way that nature works to keep our bodies clean from pollution and damaging elements.
Likewise, irritants that come into the mouth are enveloped in mucus and because we are upright during the day walking and sitting, it mostly drains away through the body and is expelled.
The problem really gets bad when we lie down to sleep.
As the body is now horizontal instead of vertical, the secretions cant drain away quite as easily as during the day, and they tend to gather at the back of the throat.
Phlegm as it is known. sits in the throat and is very adhesive to the throat lining. This often makes it hard to cough up or swallow, allowing it to sit there for a long period of time. This does 2 things:
- It partially blocks the airway, creating disturbed airflow which causes the throat lining to vibrate
- The pollen or irritants in the mucus are in contact with the throat lining and irritate it, causing swelling and further restriction of the airway.
It is not all doom and gloom however as there are some things that you can do to help.
- Take a warm shower before going to bed - not too hot, but hot enough to create some steam. Inhale the steam through your nose and mouth and you will find that it can loosen any phlegm that is stuck in the back of your throat so that you can get rid of it before get to bed.
- If you find that your nostrils are blocked, the use of Nasal Strips such as the Snorblok Nasal Strips to help keep the nostrils dilated during the night. These are non-intrusive as they sit on the outside of the nostrils
- Nasal Dilators can also work, however they are better suited to those who have problems with their nostrils collapsing adn may not work as well if there is allergic congestion.
To cut a long story short, Enzymes break down mucus, which is a protein. However there are a large number of different enzymes and aren't all effective in breaking down mucus proteins.
Raw foods are the main source of enzymes for the body, and due to the large number of people shifting to a diet that contains a lot of cooked and processed foods, there can be a lack of the right enzymes in our diets to help break down mucus properly.
