Other Ways to Get Rid of Mucus in Your Throat
Apart from dietary solutions there are many other ways which may help you get rid of mucus in your throat. There are also some factors you need to avoid if you don’t want to worsen your problem.
Inhaling steam is one of the simplest and most effective ways to deal with the problem of mucus in throat. It makes the phlegm more liquid so it’s easier to remove and it moisturizes the respiratory system.
You can prepare your inhalation with water only or you can add to it some herbs or spices to intensify the healing effect of steam.
Eucalyptus and mint are widely known remedies to different respiratory problems such as asthma, coughs, sore throats, and of course throat mucus. They have great anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory qualities so they might be quite successful in the fight against mucus in your throat.
Prepare around five leaves of the eucalyptus leaves and eight leaves of the mint leaves. Boil them in a cup of water for 10 minutes. Pour the mixture to a bowl, cover your head with a towel, bend over the bowl and inhale the steam. You will feel immediate relief to mucus in your throat.
Water is good for everything. It clears our organism and it keeps our body hydrated. It is recommended to drink at least eight glasses of water every day.
Sometimes our body gives us signs that it needs to be detoxified. Too much phlegm is one of these signs so just drink plenty of water and wait for positive results.
If you want to fight the problem of mucus, the first thing you need to give up is smoking. Some scientific studies have proved that there is a connection between smoking and production of phlegm. Probably it’s like that because cigarettes dry out vocal chords.
Smoking is bad for your health so try to quit it and for sure you will feel better and you will see that the production of mucus is reduced. At the beginning you can try nicotine patches.
It might sound surprising to you, but dairy products like milk or yoghurts can be the reasons for accumulated mucus. It does not mean you should give it up completely, but at least try to limit the consumption of milk and see if it makes any difference to mucus in your throat.
If you work with dangerous chemicals, paint fumes or cleaners, you might suffer from mucus in throat. Try to avoid it or if it’s not possible, at least always cover your face with a mask.
It has been proved that humming vibrations may break up the mucus that accumulated in your throat so do it whenever you can.
Also, try not to swallow phlegm, but rather try to spit it. You can do it in discreet manner by always holding a tissue in your hand so that you can use it when you feel that too much mucus irritates your throat.
