People who suffer from a stuffy nose that refuses to be cleared from simply blowing it do not have to suffer in silence. There are a number of unusual but surprisingly effective ways to cure it that are just waiting to be tried. Read on to find out more.

Tongue Tap Trick

This method might sound a bit silly, but it has been proven to be very effective. What you need to do is press the tip of your tongue against the roof of your mouth and then release your tongue and apply pressure between your eyebrows. Repeat this action several times for around twenty seconds. This action helps to clear the congestion almost instantly. The great thing about this is that no ingredients or special tools are required and once you have the method down it is very quick and easy.

Holding Your Breath

Tip your head backwards and hold your nose, holding your breath for as long as you possibly can. Only take a breath when you really have to and move your head back down again and you will probably find that your sinuses have cleared. You can repeat this step as often as you like, any time that your nose is blocked. The method works because your brain realises that you are not getting enough oxygen and your survival mechanism will kick in and your sinuses will clear so that you get enough air.

Hot Water Rinse

This is a great way of removing debris that is blocking your nose so that you can breathe more easily. Find an eye dropper or pipette and fill it full of warm water. Tip your head all the way back and place a few drops of the water into each nostril. Leave the water in your nostrils for a few minutes or as long as is comfortable and the tilt your head back downwards over a sink or a bowl. In addition to the warm water, various debris should also come streaming out your nose and it should now be much easier to breathe.
