Snack on horseradish
Horseradish, which is in the same family as mustard and wasabi, is an old home remedy to clear sinuses and promote the expulsion of mucus. Add horseradish to your favourite sandwich, or blend 1 tablespoon horseradish, 1 teaspoon olive oil, and 1 teaspoon lemon juice and spread on a cracker. Nibble until you feel your stuffy nose start to drain. You can also toss the grated root into cooked rice or mashed potatoes. If your problem is chronic, try eating horseradish at the start of your symptoms. You’ll quickly rid your body of any stagnant mucus, which can act as a breeding ground for bacteria and infection.
