Our nose is our filtering system. Our nose is lined with a layer of mucus which traps dust, pollutants and bacteria.👍🏽 Cilia are tiny hairs that swap the mucus down our throats, where it’s transported via swallowing into our stomach and made harmless by our stomach acid.👍🏽 It’s all balanced just right so our filtering process operate successfully. However, allergic reactions, and infections disrupt our peaceful body balance 🤧 by signaling our immune system to bring in extra blood cells into the lining of our nasal passages, causing our nose to make extra mucus overwhelming our filtering system’s ability to keep things clean; which leaves them and us congested and inflamed.🥴
