- Enjoy Ginger
The volatile oils in ginger have long made it a useful herbal remedy for nasal and chest congestion. Pour 2 cups of boiling water over a 1-inch piece of peeled, grated ginger, steep for 10 minutes and strain. Add a pinch or two of cayenne pepper to the water and drink as needed.

If you suffer from dry eyes, up your seafood intake. Salmon, sardines, and mackerel contain omega-3 fatty acids, which the body uses to produce tears, among other things. Research suggests that people who consume higher amounts of these foods are less likely to have dry eyes.
