Discovery: the Cause of Blocked Nose Found


By Dr. Artour Rakhimov (

Problems with nasal congestions are very common these days. Medical data suggests that from 10 to 20% of people, depending on the country, suffer from chronic sinusitis and related disorders. It is very common in asthma, bronchitis, chronic fatigue and many other conditions.

Blocked nose is actually a breathing issue. Consequently, we need to analyze abnormalities related to respiration in modern-day average people. Each person may detect that modern-day average men and women possess numerous breath difficulties, which include poor breath holding abilities, upper chest breathing, sighing, mouth breathing, shortness of breath during exercise and many others.

Contemporary physiological studies have revealed that ordinary people breathe
heavily and fast in comparison with individuals living around a century ago. The usual respiratory rate in modern day people is around 12 liters of air in 1 minute rather than 6 (the physiological standard).

Consider that vast numbers of modern people possess an ignorant myth that large basal breathing pattern (or chronic hyperventilation) augments oxygen content in the body cells. They additionally suppose that carbon dioxide is a poisonous and toxic chemical.

Hundreds of health-related research articles have shown that hyperventilation results in LOWERED O2 content in the body cells. Furthermore, carbon dioxide performs uncountable necessary processes, including: synthesis of proteins and lipids, control of respiration, repair of alveoli in the lungs, stability of the nervous cells, sleep regulation, weight control, healthy immunity, control of stomach pH, blood pH regulation, oxygen delivery to all vital organs, relaxation of muscular cells, release of oxygen in capillaries (the Bohr effect), heart rate regulation, blood sugar control, blood pressure maintenance and numerous other fundamental biochemical processes.

How hyperventilation leads to blocked nose

Amongst the primary negative effects of over-breathing with regards to blocked nose are:
- frequent nasal bacterial infections due to the suppressed immune system
- poor oxygenation and blood supply of cilia cells (hence, their decreased potential to clear unwanted debris out)
- excess production of mucus.

Examine your automatic breathing pattern using a DIY test

Following your USUAL exhalation, pinch the nose and count duration of your stress-free breath hold. Bear in mind that your respiratory pattern subsequently to the test has to be the same as your respiratory pattern prior to the breath hold: no strain what-so-ever immediately after the test.

This specific test evaluates a couple of parameters at the same time. Firstly, the final result indicates how intense the individual respiration pattern is. Secondly, it assesses O2 level in the body tissues.

As long as the automatic breathing pattern is actually normal, they ought to be capable to keep the breath hold for nearly forty seconds.

As clinical practice has noticed, folks with blocked nose have less than twenty s for this DIY body oxygen test. Thus, that person breathes at least twice the physiological norm.

The permanent answer to blcoked nose

If your automatic respiratory pattern is so gentle that your concentration of O2 in the body is above 20 s, you will not have acute problems with the blocked nose. Consequently, you really should slow down your intense breathing in order to attain this goal.

In addition, distinguished Soviet physilogist Dr. KP Buteyko created an Emergency Procedure: breathing work out to relieve the blocked nose. It is based upon decreased breathing and buildup of carbon dioxide in the blood and lungs and the link is offered in the resource box below.

Advantageous life habits alterations

Breathing normalization practice demands relaxation of body muscles and constant regulation of respiration including:
- constant nasal breathing (hence, learn how to seal your mouth with a surgical tape, if your mouth is usually dry in the morning
- prevention of sleeping on one's back (we breathe about 2 times more air, if we sleep on our backs at night)
- physical activity for (no less than 2 hours daily with only nasal breathing, in and out, otherwise exercise is almost ineffective for most, especially sick patients)
- correct posture for abdominal breathing 24/7
- learning stomach breathing 24/7
- eating only when hungry
- and numerous other lifestyle-related factors for greater body oxygen content.

Wow! This is great information. Thank you. I will try the exercise and eating only when I'm hungry.
