4. Nettle Leaf
Did you know that a Tibetan saint, Milarepa lived only with nettle leaves for years and years of meditation? This weed is something that most people pull and then throw out. However, just like dandelions, these evergreen herbal leaves play a major role when it comes to health. You can suffer from extreme snoring when the sinus passages become inflamed because of allergies in the upper respiratory tract or it could also be due to sinusitis. In these cases, nettle leaf can be one of the best effective home remedies for snoring. To try this remedy, here is what you need to do:
- Step 1: You can take one teaspoon of dried nettle leaves.
- Step 2: You have to have one cup of boiling water.
- Step 3: The dried nettle leaves should be boiled for ten minutes.
- Step 4: You can allow the mixture to warm and strain the tea.
You can have the mixture three times a day to get relief from snoring.
How Does This Work?
The bioflavonoids present in nettle leaves possess the ability to reduce congesting by preventing the formation and release of histamines. The histamines are the compounds (inflammatory) that are produced in the body due to allergens. The white blood cells then do their part in eliminating the allergens.
