Top Home Remedies For Wheezing

Hello All!!!

Do you suffer from wheezing? Many people do and most of the credit goes to the rise in air pollution. You know how difficult it has become to step out of the house especially in metro cities! There has been a steep reduction in air quality due to which people suffer from several respiratory disorders.

Wheezing is a common symptom of many respiratory ailments. When the airways get tightened, inflamed or blocked, a person’s breathing sound turns into a whistle or a squeak. The common causes of wheezing are allergies, asthma, cold or more serious ailments like chronic obstructive pulmonary disease or COPD.

Wheezing can be controlled with the help of home remedies and without an inhaler. However, it depends on the cause. Below are the top home remedies for wheezing that are quite helpful.

If you happen to have asthma or any other respiratory condition, you need to speak to your doctor and consume the medicines prescribed including the asthma inhaler.

1) Inhaling steam

The best way of opening airways and clearing up sinuses is inhaling warm air that is rich in moisture. Here’s how to go about it,

  • Take hot water in a vessel and breathe in the steam by bending over it while keeping a safe distance.
  • Place a towel to cover your head so that the moisture gets trapped.
  • To make the steam more powerful, add a few drops of eucalyptus oil.

2) Drinking hot beverages

When you drink warm beverages, the airways are loosened up and there is relief from congestion. You can add a spoon of honey to your cup of hot drink as it is anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial by nature. Honey has been found to be helpful in relieving throat congestion.

3) Breathing exercises

By doing breathing exercises, you can get relief from COPD, allergies, bronchitis and other causes of wheezing.

Studies reveal that yoga breathing techniques are helpful in providing relief from breathing difficulties. You can seek the help of a doctor or therapist in order to learn breathing techniques that will be helpful for your ailment.

4) Using humidifiers

It is quite common for people to have wheezing during winter. Having a humidifier installed in the bedroom can help in loosening the congestion and reduce the intensity of wheezing. You can add peppermint oil to the water in the humidifier after checking with instruction manual of the humidifier.

5) Installing air filters

Polluted air and allergens can worsen wheezing. Installing an air filter at home can bring down the number of irritants that trigger wheezing.

Things you need to take care of
