But, first we should find out the main reasons your airways are swollen.
What is Histamine?
Histamine is a chemical neurotransmitter produced by the body during an allergic reaction in response to different allergens. Apart from being allergic to things like peanuts and pet fur, people can also be allergic to other allergens causing histamine such as dust, mold, cigarette smoke and even chemicals from cleaning products.
Histamine is released from your immune system in the cells located in the lungs when inhaling an allergen.
Antihistamines are the most common drugs used to prevent or reduce the release of histamine, which often treats the allergic reactions effectively. On the other hand, these drugs come along with many side effects such as:
- Dry mouth
- Nausea and vomiting
- Restlessness or moodiness (in some children)
- Trouble urinating or not being able to urinate
- Blurred vision
Thankfully, there is a natural remedy to treat these allergic reactions effectively without side effects.
Oregano for Lung Cleansing
Apart from its richness in numerous beneficial nutrients, oregano oil contains rosmarinic, flavonoids and terpenes, all of which are essential for cleansing your respiratory system and treating allergenic reactions.
According to a study conducted by a team of researchers, which examined the rosmarinic acid’s ability, it was found that rosmarinic acid can reduce the unpleasant symptoms caused by histamine due to its ability to inhibit allergic reactions and reduce the fluid build up and swelling that appears during an allergy attack.
The best way to provide with the antihistamine benefits of the oregano oil is to drink it diluted.
Take a sip of water, hold it in your mouth and tilt your head back with your mouth open. Squeeze 2-3 drops of the oregano oil in the water, swallow and then chase it with greater amount of water.
Since oregano provides strong antibacterial properties, that destroy bad, as well as good bacteria in your body, you are not allowed to drink this more than 3 times a week.
