Friends, my name is Priyank and you are watching Being Scientist. I welcome you all on the channel. In the previous video, I had explained what causes a running nose at bodily level? However, if you are suffering from running nose, what all the home remedies are available to prevent running nose, let's understand through this video: I am gonna tell you six home remedies one by one. 1) You should drink as much water as possible in order to make the mucus thinner. What is mucus and how is it produced is something I have already explained in the previous video. You must have personally experienced the viscosity of the mucus when it comes out from nostrils. So the idea here is to make mucus thinner by drinking ample volume of water so that it could drain out from nostrils and could not clog in the nose. 2) This remedy may sound like grandma's remedy: it is suggested to drink Kadha whoever person is suffering from cold and cough and sneezing. Or something like hot drink be it, hot coffee or hot tea.
This grandma's remedy has been investigated by modern science and found to be effective against cold and cough. So you can consider taking any hot drink, be it kadha, hot coffee or hot tea, as per your convenience. 3) You should take the hot steam on your face. You can add menthol or any herbal plant in water, boil it and take the steam in your nose for 20-30 minutes. It will help mucus drain out from your nose and you will soon experience the freshness in your nose.
4) Take the hot shower. The hot shower should not be boiling water otherwise your skin will get burnt. Take a lukewarm water and let the steams of lukewarm water go through your clogged nose which will eventually make your mucus thin. Once the mucus is drained out from nose, you can experience the freshness. 5) You can insert the snout of a small nose cleansing instrument, Netipot, in your nose. Water filled in Netipot should be contamination free, may be distilled water you can consider. Failing to do so could cause infection to you inside the nose. Then you flush the distilled water from the instrument to your nose, your mucus will get cleaned up. You can see many video tutorials on YouTube explaining how to use Netipot. So yeah Netipot can also give you a mucus free nose. If you don't have it, you can check the description for the product link and place the order from there. 6) Diamond cuts diamond As I told you in my previous video, spicy food is one of the causative agents for running nose.
So you should consider eating as much spicy food as possible so that it will be signaled to mucus to come out from nose and entire mucus will drain out from nose. These are six home remedies I have discussed that do not involve any medication or tablet. Despite trying all possible home remedies, if you are not able to recover for last 3-5 days, it may be due to a specific allergen or a disease due to a pathogen, be it virus or bacteria. In such cases, do not go by my advices. Rather you should visit a health professional, not an unqualified doctor. Only a professional doctor will diagnose the underlying disease and advise you the suitable treatment.
Enough for today. We'll see you each other again. Jai Vigyan!
