Congestion is the swelling of the lining of the nose and nasal cavities that is due to an allergic reaction. The nose is doing what it needs to do to fight the allergies. The problem is that it is blocking other functions that must happen: the draining of the nose. Mucous backs and cannot escape into the back of the throat and down into the stomach. The end result is a backup of mucous. This causes more swelling and forceful pressure against the clogged sinuses. There is no recourse. Pressure builds and builds and the skull transmits the pain it feels until it’s impossible to function anymore. All because of either allergens in the air, faulty sinus drainage mechanisms, clogged sinus openings, or attention to one of these areas in need.
