A Chinese Prescription for Sensitive Nose

My mum has a very sensitive nose. Whenever the dust content in the air goes up, she will start sneezing non-stop. I kind of inherited that from her, too. About 10 years ago, a monk gave me a prescription to cure my allergic, or at least to reduce its impact. I am going to share it here.

1. Lotus root
2. Almond nuts

1. Wash the lotus root clean. Make sure there is no mud left-over.
2. Cut the lotus root into small pieces
3. Put the lotus root and almond together into slow cooker, add water
4. Cook for 3-4 hours, then add salt.

Drink the soup and eat the lotus root & almond.


  1. Does it work? My father has a sensitive nose too.

  2. Yes, it works, to a certain extent. At least I don't suffer from sensitive nose anymore. Well, it still happens occasionally.
