What to Do About Excess Mucus and Phlegm

Have you recently noticed an excess of mucus and phlegm in your system? These important fluids are naturally produced every day to moisturize and protect tissue in the body. Mucus and phlegm also trap potential irritants in your body. Your body can go into overdrive creating mucus and phlegm when you:

  • Have a cold
  • Have irritated sinuses (sinusitis)
  • Have allergies
  • Are exposed to smoke or pollution

Knowing how to safely address these symptoms is essential.

Natural remedies to address chronic problems with phlegm and mucus include:

  • Drinking more water.
  • Using a Humidifier.
  • Checking filters on heating and cooling systems.
  • Using a nasal saline spray.

One should seek medical attention if natural remedies fail to resolve the issue. Worrisome signs are mucus accompanied by fevers, chills and night sweats, or weight loss. Don’t let an excess of mucus and phlegm slow you down. Discuss your sinusitis problem with a certified Professional at East Texas Sinus.
