It's hard to breathe easy when the air is so dry, which is why wintertime requires special steps to help you treat your respiratory system well.
"Cold, dry air...challenges the respiratory system by causing the cells lining the airways to become inflamed and produce mucus as a protective mechanism. Mucous production results in chest congestion, coughing, and discharge," according to the Toronto Sun.
To combat these effects, the news source recommends herbal remedies using marshmallow roots and licorice as well as regular sinus rinsing.
Another wholesale method to attack such conditions is to install a professional grade air purifying system. Employing a trusted machine can be your top-line defense against a range of airborne contaminants including dust, dust mites, mold, pollen, pet dander, smoke, gases, odors, viruses and bacteria.
