Mucus relief is essential especially when some more people than others produce too much of it.
Excessive mucus is one of many symptoms of food allergies.
We all produce it of course but some people like myself tend to produce way too much of it.
With me being an allergy sufferer, off the charts according to my food allergy tests, I produce mucus like crazy!
Some days I find myself constantly blowing my nose and clearing my sinuses with my neti pot (bottled water ONLY), which provides incredible mucus relief.
I must stay on top of clearing the icky stuff from my sinuses because if I don’t, it will cause me to have a stomachache accompanied by horrible
lower left abdominal pain because of the drainage.
Because I’m allergic to everything, I tend to suffer all year round, well at least until everything goes dormant.
I’m allergic to mold, pollen, trees, grass…just about everything...UGH!
The thing about phlegm is that it doesn’t go away once I go to sleep;
it continues to accumulate over night causing me to wake up with horrible stomach pain.
Before, I would eat breakfast without clearing my sinuses with my neti pot and couldn’t understand why my stomach pain was from only eating oatmeal.
This would occur often.
Then I figured out that it wasn’t the food,
it was the built up phlegm that had accumulated over night which was causing me to have pain in my stomach.
The fullness was from the drainage of it as well as built up gas.
When I wake up in the morning, I’m normally congested with also having the feeling of being full.
I didn’t realize initially that the fullness was from the phlegm draining into my stomach overnight.
Let me tell you, it makes all the difference in the world!
In addition to stomach pain, excess mucus can also cause but not limited to
