Twice in two days, I’ve had sinus pressure and congestion seemingly disappear while chewing spearmint gum. Coincidence? Chewing did it? Mint did it? What do you think?
I know the chewing motion can help mine, but I’ve never noticed a difference with mint. That said, I wonder if the vending machine downstairs has any spearmint gum that I can try.
Oddly enough, spearmint gum gives me sinus headaches!
Hmmm I’m allergic to dust, and ignoring it is much easier than being super clean, so some congestion is a daily issue. I can’t say I’ve ever seen a difference with gum although if given a choice i prefer cinnamon. I also don’t pay really pay that much attention unless things are worse than the norm so I might be missing an effect if there is one.
Chewing helps my sinuses. Sometimes minor irritants loosen up the mucous membranes so maybe that’s a factor too.
