8 home remedies that can help you deal with morning sneezes and congestions


Sometimes you just wake up in the morning sneezing like crazy and feeling terribly congested not knowing why or how that happened. The answer lies in your sleeping environment (room, bedding, pillows, etc) and the climate you are living in (dry city climate, very cold air conditioning, etc) because your nose can be a little bit sensitive and reacts to the changes in the air. Also, reactions to animal hair, mold, or dust mite can be part of the equation as well.

First, before doing anything, you should identify the problem if it is caused by irritants or allergens. As a start, change your bedding for a week, turn up the AC a little bit, or start sleeping with a humidifier. If nothing works out for you, try these 8 home remedies.

1. Turmeric
