Hi Michelle: There is so much research on the common cold you would think they would have found a cure by now! But, until they do here is the information you requested on a "natural" remedy for a runny nose.
The nose is supposed to be moist to help humidify the air we breathe. During a cold, the nose will become even more runny or congested due to inflammation in the nasal passage. This sticky mucous also traps dust, pollen, and other airborne particles common in allergies. If a nose is watery, clear, or runny, just let it be and get a good supply of tissues.
If the mucous is thick, colored, or sticky, the body may need some help.
