Spring is almost here, and with it, the pollen season is approaching. For many, airborne pollen causes unpleasant irritation symptoms. Regular WellO2 breathing training can effectively alleviate your spring irritation symptoms.
The condition of your respiratory tract mucous membranes plays a crucial role in managing irritation symptoms caused by the pollen season. That's why it's a good idea to start regular WellO2 breathing exercises in advance to ensure that your respiratory tract mucous membranes are in the best possible condition when the spring flowering season begins.
Winter is a particularly challenging time for the respiratory tract mucous membranes. During the heating season, indoor air is dry, which also dries out the respiratory tract mucous membranes. Additionally, strong air conditioning in many public spaces can strain the mucous membranes. During the winter, people spend a lot of time indoors, exposing themselves to dry air more than in the summer. Even the beautiful frosty weather outdoors in winter is usually dry and can also strain the respiratory tract mucous membranes in that way. Furthermore, if you talk a lot at work or are stressed, these factors may further weaken the condition of your mucous membranes. The pollen season following winter can further strain the condition of the respiratory tract, especially for those who suffer from allergies.
Weakness in the respiratory tract, especially in the nasal mucous membrane, may also make you more prone to severe allergic eye symptoms. This is because the mucous membrane also lines the tear ducts. Moreover, many other so-called allergy symptoms, such as voice problems, coughing, throat clearing, or nasal congestion, may indicate weak mucous membrane condition. Many people start taking allergy medications well in advance of the pollen season. Unfortunately, allergy medication may further dry out the already weak mucous membranes, which can exacerbate symptoms.
To ensure that your respiratory tract mucous membranes are ready for the pollen season, it's a good idea to start regular WellO2 breathing training well in advance. Here are some tips for training!
Start regular WellO2 breathing training for the pollen season with these tips:
- Use the nasal mask, as the nasal mucous membrane plays a crucial role in managing irritation symptoms.
- Choose the medium temperature setting if it doesn't feel too hot. Warmer steam activates the mucous membrane and increases its moisture more effectively.
- Use resistance level 0 or 1, as the goal is only to activate the metabolism of the muscles and tissues beneath the mucous membrane.
- Perform a total of 20 exhales and inhales through the nasal mask. At one time, you can do, for example, 1–5 exhales and inhales. Take breaks in between if continuous training feels challenging.
- You will benefit most from the training if you do it twice a day – in the morning and in the evening.
There is no daily limit for WellO2 breathing training. If the training feels good and alleviates your symptoms, you can practice as often as you like. Children can also practice with the WellO2 device under parental supervision. Please note that WellO2 breathing training is supplementary to medication and medication should be continued as per the doctor's instructions.
The WellO2 team wish you a wonderful anticipation of spring – let's take care of our mucous membranes and noses!
