Ugh!! I am sooooo congested, I cannot breathe, I was gagging this morning it was so bad! I am going to try the Neti pot solution I got as a free sample, but what else can I use/do to clear this up?

Kali Mur cell salts can help with excess mucus, as can marshmallow root.

I use an essential oil blend called Breathe. It's like Vicks but works so much better

A good, and cheap, home remedy is apple cider vinegar. You put half apple cider vinegar, half water in a pot on the stove. Set the stove to simmer and breathe the vapors. It'll sting your nose a little bit, but will break up all the mucus.

What makes you congested? Cold or allergy?

pretty sure it's allergies,  and quite possibly dairy has a hand in it...(as well as other little things) but lately it's so bad! very mucusy nose and throat..

I'm like you DJLadyK, mostly throat mucus and my nose gets stuffed & many times bleeds. For my nose I use Ayr, which is under $5 at Walmart & lasts a long time. I will have to try the apple cider vinegar that JCPenny suggested. Glad to see this post, as it is helping me too!
