Also, check for allergies. If you have allergies nothing will work to reduce mucous as they may be chronic if related to food, specific pollen, saltwater, etc. You need to address those as any allergy that keeps your system active with mucous or inflammation will definitely interfere with your ability to clear your ears. I had chronic allergies for years resulting in a ruptured eardrum until I addressed my microbiome (gut) health which is where most of our allergies reside unless they are genetic. I have been allergy-free now for over 10 years.Try RHMEDY.com it's saline, H202 (food grade hydrogen peroxide), and MgCl (magnesium chloride). It will knock out sinus and bronchial infections and help keep your breathing passages clear. If you have a throat infection, best to use warm salt water and over-the-counter H202 @ 3% (capful in 8oz) every couple of hours until you knock out the infection. Saltwater acts (through osmosis) to draw out the mucus and infection and H202 kills any bacteria or viral load. As to Mr. X's reply above, No, if you are congested and you have an infection, going for a run may temporarily clear your sinuses, while simultaneously driving it deeper into your bronchial passages and lungs. So any cardio should be very light if at all.
