Postnasal Drip and Drip, Drip, Drip? Herbal Supplements to the
Postnasal drip occurs because of excess mucus in the back of the nose and throat that can solidify in layers and cause headaches. It can be acute, lasting for a short period of time after a cold or flu, or chronic, lasting for a longer period of time. Chronic postnasal drip can be caused by allergies to food or to something in the home, or by the shape of the septum.
Herbal Remedies that Really Help.
Sinus Support Compound (H&A Inc.) is the best herbal formula for alleviating post-nasal drip. It contains fresh Echinacea root, Osha root, fresh Eyebright herb, fresh Horseradish root and Bayberry root bark extracts. Eyebright may be the most important constituent of this formula as it is rich in anti-inflammatory flavonoids. Eyebright is particularly useful in cases of acute irritation of the sinuses and treating post-nasal drip associated with profuse mucus, pain and itching.
