Stuffy noses have possibly plagued mankind since the dawn of time. As such, various remedies have been created to ease people’s nasal problems.
Japanese Twitter user @dobu_p shared his own insight which may prove useful in the coming colder days. He suggests placing a plastic bottle under the armpit to relieve the stuffiness in one’s nose, as reported by SoraNews24.
He claims in a tweet that the practice helps the parasympathetic nervous system to clear the sinus. One simply needs to place the the bottle under the armpit on the opposite side of the blocked nostril.
If the left nostril gets blocked, squeeze the bottle under the right armpit. The netizen also specified using a 500 milliliter bottle for greater effect.
Other netizens also shared their own remedies as possibly handed down from their relatives or sourced from the internet.
One commenter suggested lying down on one side and slightly extending the arm out to quickly clear up the stuffiness.
Another suggested doing sit-ups or masturbation to help get the blood flowing.
Netizen @dobu_p replied that people at work may not be able to masturbate freely on account of rules regarding public decency. Nonetheless, he wished the commenter to have a rich life of, well, self-satisfaction. Alfred Bayle/JB
