Default Quick Way to Open Nasal Passage (blocked by swollen turbinates)

If both of your nasal passages are blocked by swollen turbinates (and you have a deviated septum), as mine are, this will probably only open up one.

Take a cheap straw that bends close to the top. Cut it about 3-4 inches long.

Put the straw into your mouth and put the other end into the nostril you want to open up. Just barely put it in. You don't want it in too deep as to cut the inside of your nose. Once inside, use your fingers to hold the straw in your nostril as to not let any air out.

Blow out into the straw, so the air goes up your nose. Take a nice deep breath and blow out into the straw again. Continue until your nostril opens up. It usually takes me about 1-3 minutes, depending on how good I hold the straw and how well I keep the air from leaking out of my nostril.

I remember, the russian method, saying something about the carbon dioxide build up, makes the swelling of the turbinates go down, so this is how I got the crazy idea of doing this. But it works!

My wife thinks I'm a nut, but I am getting results.

By the way, I think most people (unless you have a cold) have nasal blockage due to SWOLLEN TURBINATES, they just don't know it.

Just to sum up, you are exhaling your air into one of your nasal passages.
The idea is, your exhaled air (warm carbon dioxide) will decrease the swelling of the turbinates in your nasal passaage. And the swollen turbinates, although most people don't realize it, are probably the cause of your "nasal congestion".
