Catarrh, as simple as it sounds can be a really disturbing health condition to deal with.

For instance, If you’ve ever had to deal with a really blocked nose as a result of catarrh, just like me or you’ve had to hold your handkerchief just a few centimetres away from your nose each time you want to laugh for fear of the unexpected (a sudden dropping/running nose), then you know just how embarrassing catarrh can be.

You know what? It’s worse when it comes with a sneeze or a cough. Gbam! the level of your public embarrassment just increased from 1.0 to 5.0. Those ones have no shame and can disturb you in the quietest environment you can think of (like in a boardroom or in church when everyone’s quiet).

Anyway, by simply following any of these homemade remedies, you will not only get rid of that catarrh in no time but also strengthen your immune system. That way, you aren’t susceptible to the flu any time soon.
