Oh no I caught a cold, I thought I was taking all the right supplements so how did the cold get in? What we know from research is there's such a fine balance of our body in our environment (not just our home, where we live but also our diet, lifestyle and stress levels) that influences how well our immune system functions.
In this list below there are going to be things you'll have more control over than others. It's about doing our best with the resources and knowledge we have at this point in time. See what you have control and influence over and where you can make changes for the benefit of your immune system.
Buteyko Nose Unblocking Exercise
1. Take a normal breath in through your nose (if you can), and out through your nose, pinch your nose and hold your breath...
2. Nod your head whilst still holding the breath until you feel a medium to strong need to breathe in again...
3. When you let your nose go and breathe in you must breathe in through your nose and immediately calm your breathing.
4. Repeat this up to 6 times and you should notice your airways clearing*.
*It is considered that if this exercise does not clear your nose it is likely that you have a physical obstruction that an ENT specialist will be able to advise you on.
