How To Clear Your Sinuses With Your Tongue And Your Thumb in 20 Seconds

Healthy sinuses are filled with air, but when they are filled with fluid  and germs they can be blocked. This blockage can cause an inflammation. When there is swelling or inflammation of the tissue lining the sinuses, sinusitis appears. Other reasons which can cause sinusitis are:

  • Allergies
  • Nasal polyps
  • Hay fever
  • Environmental irritants
  • Chemical exposures

This can result in stuffy nose which can cause difficulties in the breathing process. This nasal congestion can clear whiting weeks. However, here’s a remedy which will help you clear your sinuses.


Follow These Steps to Clear Sinuses in 20 Seconds:

  1. Push your tongue against the top of your mouth.
  2. Place a finger between your eyebrows and apply pressure.
  3. Hold it for about 20 seconds.
  4. Your sinuses should start to drain.

The Science Behind This Technique

According to Lisa DeStefano, D.O., an assistant professor at the Michigan State University College of Osteopathic Medicine, this technique is beneficial because it affects a bone known as a the vomer bone. This bone bone runs through your nasal passages to your mouth. The back and forth motion loosens congestion, allowing your sinuses to drain.

The sinuses are hollow cavities in the skull and are connected to each other with mucos tissue and mucus. These bones are flexible and a simple massage can clear the fluid accumulated in them. By pussing between the eyebrows, the frontal bone is curved which can affect  the ethmoid, which is behind it.

If you have a strong bone plasticity, this remedy will work wonders for you. However, in case the membranes are too inflamed, this technique may not drain the fluid easily.
