The nose secrets

Sports performance, self-esteem, sexual pleasure, stress, high blood pressure… all these and many more are closely related to the nose.

The nose warns us in many ways of many things

Our nose speaks to us in its own language: nasal dryness, bleeding, sneezing, snoring, itching, mucus, loss of smell. Our nose gives us a warning in many ways about many things.

Nasal disorders may indicate disease elsewhere in the body: stress, hypertension, brain tumour, degenerative disease, etc.. These symptoms should be taken seriously.

Snoring is one cause for divorce

Sometimes we see this in newspaper headlines, and it´s no wonder : many couples consider divorce because of snoring.

Snoring is not only harmful for the person who snores, but seriously affects their partner’s rest as well. One bad night’s sleep after another has very negative consequences on our character, mood and performance.

Many people who snore go to the doctor when their partner gives them an ultimatum!

Orgasms are more intense with good nasal health

For some time medical research has suggested that there is a direct relationship between the nose and the sexual organs. Some people suffer from nasal congestion or sneezing during sex, or during an orgasm, or even when they see a person they find attractive. People with nasal obstruction may also suffer low libido.

Operated patients are surprised: sexual pleasure is intensified by good nasal breathing and a healthy sense of smell.

Losing the sense of smell creates physical and social problems

Some people think that smell is the most expendable of the senses, but people with a smell impairment have trouble carrying out a normal life. How must it feel to be unable to sense your own body odor, or enjoy food, or detect dangerous situations (smoke, toxic odors, unsafe food, etc).

Disturbances of smell can lead to insecurity and extreme discomfort. It can also indicate significant health problems.

Breathing is life and tranquility

Isn´t it true that we inhale deeply, opening our arms and expanding our lungs to expand in times of pleasure and satisfaction? Isn´t it true that we take a deep breath to reassure ourselves?

At birth, the first thing we do is breathe through the nose. When we die, we make a final exhalation. Breath is life, pleasure and wellbeing. So breathing has a key role in so many health practices: stress management, antepartum exercises, relaxation, etc.

Nasal sprays can aggravate congestion

It happens to many people: when they have nasal congestion, they extend treatment a little too long, or use a nasal spray without having consulted a doctor…

The problem is that in the long term nasal sprays can have a rebound effect and create further nasal obstruction. If sprays are abused, the nose does not respond well to the effects of medication, and increasingly requires a higher dose in order to react. Over time, your congestion may get worse instead of improving.

Breathing through the mouth is not a good alternative

Why undergo nasal surgery for breathing, if we have the good fortune to be able to breathe through our mouth anyway?

The nose has some respiratory functions that the mouth does not carry out. When we breathe through the nose, the air is cleaned, warmed and humidified before reaching the lungs. In addition, the nasal valve slows the entry of air, so that the exchange of oxygen also slows, increasing cellular oxygenation.

Respiratory problems may actually be the reason behind diverse symptoms

Many breathing problems show up with symptoms that do not seem directly related to the nose – fatigue, memory problems, headaches, eating disorders, decreased sex drive and so on.

The nose is a complex organ that is interconnected to many aspects of the body.

A beautiful look sometimes depends on the nose

A small cosmetic alteration to the nose can affect your overall expression, especially around the eyes. Changing the shape or size of the nose can highlight your eyes, your smile, the way you look.

The beauty of the nose is not to be found in the nose itself, but in the effect it makes on the overall expression of the person.
