Chest congestion is a feeling of heaviness in the chest due to excess secretion of mucus by lungs. Almost every person in this world suffers from chest congestion when there will be a change in weather. It becomes common in winter season or in the rainy season due to change in weather from hot to warm and then to cold. The situation becomes very uncomfortable for the person suffering from chest congestion when he needs to face public and he does not get sufficient oxygen to breathe properly
As such chest congestion is not a serious disease but it may put you in trouble if it is not taken care on time. There can be many reasons for chest congestion such as cold, pollution, cancer in lungs, Asthma and viral infection etc. Most of the people are working these days that do not get time to take care of their health but they don’t know that they can treat chest congestion by using simple home remedies. Here I am going to share a list of best home remedies which you can try at least once while suffering from chest congestion.
Warm Liquid-: Treating chest congestion by sipping more warm liquids such as tea, coffee, and soup etc. Warm liquid helps in removing mucus which further reduces the pressure in the chest.
