I can't breathe normally through nose for long time, I use to breathe in through mouth. What is the condition and why is it so? Sometimes there is shortness of breath and my breathing is deep sometimes through nose.

Hi take ginger tea mixed with 2-3 crushed garlic cloves. Massaging the chest with warm sesame oil mixed with salt helps to loosen the phlegm deposited in the chest, especially, when followed with steam inhalation. Take shwas kuthar ras twice a day. Pranacharya asthamin capsule 1-1 twice a day. And pranacharya shwas vikarasav 2-2 tsf twice a day. 1-1 drop of cow ghee in both nostrils at night time before sleep. Take hot water steam.

MBBS, DPM
Psychiatrist, Bangalore
Dear lybrate-user, Please quit smoking and continue with your high motivational level NOT to restart. Within 3 -6 months, your lungs will be clear. You can do breathing exercises at home. You should not be with friends who smoke. Passive smoking also affects lungs. Try hard and persistently. All the best.
