Those of you with allergies to things like pet fur or pollen know the irritating feeling of breathing through an itchy throat and congested nostrils.
Nevertheless, you don’t need to have specific or rare allergy in order to feel these same symptoms.
Have you ever had an itchy throat or stuffy nose for no reason known to you?
Well, this is due to the various particles and pollutants that are constantly floating in the air. We inhale them every day although we can’t notice, and they are the reason for the mentioned reactions.
Luckily, there’s a natural medicine to this congestion, whose ingredients are probably in everyone’s pantry.
First, let us explain more precisely about what causes swelling of the airways.
What is Histamine?
The natural response of our body to allergies is called histamine.
You may believe that only people with allergies on pet fur, peanuts and similar are affected by allergens, but there are various allergens all around us which lead to histamine reactions in most people.
Such allergens are mold, dust, chemicals from cleaning products, and cigarette smoke.
Whenever you breathe in an allergen, the immune system releases histamine in nose and lung cells. Then, the histamine binds to the nearby blood vessels’ receptors, leading to their dilatation and enlargement.
It also attaches to the receptors in the nose tissues, which result in swelling, redness, and itching, experienced by many people.
Since these histamine reactions cause discomfort, people usually go with medication to get rid of them.
All sorts of medications are used for this purpose, including allergy shots and steroids, and the most common one antihistamines. These medications lower or block the histamine release, resulting in effective end of these allergic reactions.
Although these drugs can help you to stop these unpleasant allergic reactions, they frequently cause side effects that can be felt during the treatment with antihistamines. Some of these side effects include:
- Dry mouth
- Moodiness or restlessness (in some children)
- Nausea and vomiting
- Trouble with urinating (or inability to urinate)
- Blurred vision
Considering all of these negative effects, we can assume how many people buy other medications to help them dealing with their antihistamines.
Luckily, there’s a natural antihistamine which doesn’t cause any of the mentioned negative effects.
Oregano for Cleansing Lungs
We are sure that most of you know about the many beneficial properties of oregano as a result of the rich spectrum of nutrients. However, do you know that oregano can as well cleanse your lungs?
It contains high amounts of flavonoids, carvacol, and terpens, which present natural decongestants. Moreover, it includes rosmarinic acid which is highly beneficial for the treatment of allergies.
According to a study, rosmarinic acid can reduce the swelling and the fluid accumulation in time of an allergic attack.
That’s why it’s highly effective at lowering the annoying symptoms that are provoked by histamine.
In order to receive the antihistamine benefits from oregano, is to consume diluted oregano oil.
For that purpose, take a sip of water and hold it in your mouth while tilting your head back with open mouth. Then add 2 to 3 drops of oregano oil in the water and swallow. Drink more water afterwards.
Since oregano possesses strong antibacterial features which destroy both the good and bad bacteria in our body, it’s recommended to do this not more than 3 times per week.
