I was suffering from a terrible head cold and head congestion. My home remedy for head congestion is very simple and very effective. I boil a small pot of water and pour the water into a sterilized container then I take some salt (I prefer Himalayan salt but any salt will do) and add to the container. I use about one tablespoon of salt per one cup of water. Allow the water to cool to a luke warm temperature then take an eye dropper container and pour the salt water mixture into the container. Lean your head back and drop two drops of the salt water into each nostril and keep your head tilted back until you taste the salt water going down your throat. Bring your head back to an upright position and gently blow your nose but not at once instead take one side of your nose and blow one nostril at a time.

A sure natural remedy for head congestion is a healthy plant based diet including whole grains and pasta. The elimination of all dairy products will quickly reduce the amount of flem producing mucus in your body and therefore give immediate relief to head and nasal congestion. When I used to use dairy products in my diet I had frequent cold and problems with congestion. Eating a variety of vegetables, fruits and whole grains will also boost your immune system and consequently ward off many would be colds and viruses. If I do get head congestion I take a larger amount of vitamin C and I prefer a brand called Emergen-C. The Emergen-C brand can be purchased in most grocery or health food stores. They box is filled with small packets of the vitamin C in 1000 mg dosages. When my nose or head is congested I take one packet several times throughout the day. You do not need to worry about taking too much vitamin C because excess vitamin C flushes out of your system.

This will clear your nose and relieve your head congestion.
Sugar Free Diet
My natural cure for head congestion is removing refined sugars and refined processed foods from my diet. These processed foods have little or no nutritional value and can actually cause harm to your body and immune system making you more vulnerable to head colds and other viruses and flu like conditions. Eat warm foods when you have head congestion. Hot wholesome vegetable soups and stews or brown rice dishes with warm steamed vegetables will help to heal your head congestion and strengthen your own immune system.
Cayenne pepper is a very potent home remedy for head congestion. Some people take the cayenne pepper and simply eat it but I prefer to sprinkle the cayenne pepper on food because the pepper itself is quite spicy. Cayenne pepper naturally clears head congestion.
