‘Tis the season for sinus troubles and allergy frustrations. Stuffy noses abound and can be irritating and painful. Most of the time, the solution to these nasal problems is a sinus rinse. This homemade sinus rinse is made with sea salt and baking soda, and is painless and effective.
“All of the sudden, I was getting headaches every day. The kind of headache that’s always there, just bad enough that without taking a OTC pain reliever you’re totally miserable.
I remember sitting in the doctors office crying because I was so exhausted from always having a headache. I just wanted them to STOP.
There was no obvious reason for my headaches and I didn’t have any other symptoms. But we ran lots of tests anyway just to make sure.
I was shocked when my doctor handed me a prescription for an allergy medication and although I wasn’t as educated or as health conscious as a I now – the idea of taking a prescription drug for allergies didn’t sound right, since there was no other conversation regarding allergies. Of course I refused.. but my doctor explained that she agreed with me that no I shouldn’t take a drug without reason, however she thought that MAYBE it would help, maybe I had allergies that were causing my headache, after all I was taking OTC pain relievers anyway.
So I figured what the heck – it’s short term and MAYBE it will help….
Seriously, my headache went away and never came back. It was life altering.
After 2 weeks of blissful relief I went back to the Dr for my follow up, I was so excited to tell her that my headaches were GONE.”
