Extreme Nasal Congestion? Suggest Some Yoga Position

Yoga can provide relief from sinus symptoms such as nasal congestion and headaches. The very aim of the pranayama or breathing exercises in yoga is to strengthen the muscles of the nasal passageways and lungs and bring comfort to them as well.

Asanas such as Sun Salutation, Cobra Pose, Fish Pose, Dead Man’s Pose can help with nasal congestion as well.

If you have a stuffy nose and headache, this is not the time to perform your normal yoga routine. Keep in mind that your energy levels will be low and you may not be able to do anything more strenuous than a few breathing exercises and stretched. Take this as a sign that your body needs a rest and time to recuperate and don’t push it any further.

A recommended breathing exercise for nasal congestion is Anulom Vilom – breathing alternatively from one side of the nose and then the next. It helps reduce blockage of phlegm in the nose and the throat. You should also do some Ujjayi Pranayama and Brahmari. The vibrations and humming in these exercises open the nasal passageways and drain the phlegm and infection. Avoid headstands and handstands when you have a cold and use a towel or other support even for the lying down poses to make it more comfortable.

Yes of course you can practice yoga safely for curing your nasal block problem. If you practice yoga regularly you will soon see a marked improvement in your condition and you might not need the nasal drops or sprays at all. All you need to do is practice it correctly and be dedicated to your yoga practice to get the desired results. You can practice the yoga cleansing called Jala Neti that involves cleaning your sinus passages with warm saline water. You would need to use a special vessel called the jala neti pot. It looks like a little teapot. Fill it up with warm water to which a little salt has been added. The proportion of salt should be a teaspoon to half a liter of water. Check the temperature of water on your palm to test that it is warm and not hot. Then insert the little cone of the spout in your right nostril, tilt your head and pour the water through your nostril. It will come out through the other nostril. Do not try to breathe through you nose at this time, as this will cause the water to go into your mouth and throat. The water should only flow smoothly from one nostril and out from the other while you breathe through your mouth. After doing this remember to dry your nose thoroughly by bending forward and allowing the excess water to drain out. You breathe in through your mouth and breathe out through your nose to get rid of any remaining water. Then breathe rapidly through your nostrils alternatively to dry them. Jala neti or nasal cleansing should be learnt and practiced under the guidance and supervision of a well qualified yoga instructor initially till you know it well enough to do it yourself at home.

Jala neti or the nasal cleansing effectively helps to remove all the mucus and germs from the nasal and sinus cavities. Once your nasal passage is clear of germs it functions better and prevents other infections like sinusitis, allergies, hay fever and upper respiratory ailments like coughs and sore throats, adenoids and inflammation of tonsils. It is also beneficial for migraine, headaches, epilepsy, hysteria, depression and general stress and tension. Besides this it also prevents eye problems and improves your vision giving a healthy sparkle to your eyes.

You can also practice pranayama or breathing exercises like the Anulom Vilom or the alternate nostril breathing and Kapalbhati or the breath of fire to treat your nasal block problem.
