Have you ever had a stuffy nose? This could be the result of a sinus infection or a cold.
You see when the lining of your sinus cavity becomes inflamed from irritations like bacteria or viruses. This causes your nasal passage to swell and create blockages making it really hard for you to breathe. While it usually takes around a week or two to clear up nasal congestion, with this remedy it may only take seconds!
How to clear your sinuses in twenty seconds
Push your tongue up against the top of your mouth and place your thumb between your eyebrows.
Using your thumb press down for about twenty seconds be sure to apply a decent amount of pressure.
This will allow your sinus passage to begin draining and clear up your congestion problem almost instantly.
Why does this work?
There is a bone known as a the vomer bone. It runs through your nasal passages and into your mouth. Pressing between your eyebrows causes this bone to rock back and forth, by doing this you loosen the congestion and allow your sinuses to drain.
