How do you find relief from spring allergies? Sometimes, the best way to minimize mucus is by cutting back on foods that have similar qualities to mucus. Mucus is thick, sticky, and rich. Rich foods increase the thickness and quantity of mucus. These include dairy products (especially cheese), wheat & other heavy grains, and meat.
Light, clear, dry, bitter and hot food and recipes help thin mucus. Spices can help flush out mucus, including ginger, turmeric, black pepper and cumin. Beans, bitter greens, leafy vegetables, sprouts, radishes, parsley, and many others can help cleanse your body of toxins and reduce the reactivity of your immune system. Nasya oil is an ancient Ayurveda remedy that builds immunity, prevents spring allergies and helps decongest excess mucus. My Saved Articles | Most Popular
