Chest congestion can be terrible and painful. If you suffer from diabetes, high blood pressure, or other things you may not be able to take all medicines available to cure chest congestion. I found some home remedies for chest congestion that I will share with you. You don’t need to stop at the pharmacy for these remedies.
Take a hot shower
You should take a hot shower for chest congestion. The steam will help loosen phlegm in your throat and sinuses. You should inhale the steam. Unfortunately, the bathroom will get hot in the summertime.
Drink hot beverages
The steam from the hot beverage will get rid of chest congestion. You should breathe the steam deeply before each sip. Hopefully you won’t burn your tongue when you sip the beverage.
Get towels in hot water
Wrap two towels around your chest. Lay down under a blanket for three minutes. You should repeat this step two times. Wipe down your chest with a cold cloth after.
Massage your chest
A chest massage will help to strengthen the chest muscles, increase circulation, and tone up the nervous system of chest, heart and lungs. You can do this for a few minutes for an unlimited amount of time during the day.
Drink green tea
You should drink lots of hot green tea. You should drink three to four cups of hot green tea for at least two days. This should get rid of your chest congestion. An extra tip would be to add some apple cider vinegar whenever you drink the green tea. I must warn you that it may be nasty if you put too much vinegar in the tea. Try one or two teaspoons of the vinegar.
Use apple cider vinegar
Put some apple cider vinegar on a cotton ball and rub it across your chest, your neck, up to your ears, and your throat. This will loosen up the phlegm in your throat. You may not smell too hot afterwards so it will give you a chance to take a hot shower. You will be able to combine two steps with this one.
Use a heating pad
Turn on a heating pad and place it on your chest. Your coughing should stop and the tightness in your chest should go away. Don’t turn the heating pad up too high or else you will burn your chest.
That’s all the tips I have. Feel free to add any of your chest congestion remedies. I am always interested in discovering new ways to get rid of chest congestions. I hope these help you.
