During the winter months, it's common to suffer from colds or flu, leaving many with annoying symptoms like coughing, sneezing, and a constant need for tissues.

However, one of the most bothersome symptoms is the feeling of mucus in the throat. Fortunately, if you're struggling, there's an "effective" trick to alleviate this, shared by Dr. Jun Reyes on TikTok.

This simple solution takes only 20 seconds and has worked for hundreds of online users who have reported positive results.

Dr. Reyes used his TikTok profile to assist those suffering and advised followers of a "very effective" way to clear mucus trapped in the throat.

The method involves diaphragmatic breathing by inhaling deeply through the nose for five seconds and holding the breath for another five seconds.

Then, you should slowly exhale with a glass of water and a straw.

The 'Huff' Cough Method

The final step in the treatment is a so-called "huff" cough, where you exhale forcefully in a similar motion to trying to fog a mirror. This technique helps create moisture in the throat and loosen the mucus.

Many online users found relief from their winter illness symptoms using this trick. One testimony in Dr. Reyes' comment section wrote:

"This definitely works, I just did it and almost choked on the mucus," thanking the doctor. Another wrote: "This really worked," while another chimed in saying: "WORKED IMMEDIATELY."

Other Methods to Relieve Mucus

The NHS (the British equivalent of the Health Authority) recommends other methods to relieve mucus, including drinking 6-8 glasses of water a day, trying to avoid coughing fits, and regular exercise to prevent mucus from settling.
