...AHHH Relief!

I have had this dang cold/sinus crap for going on a week now! It's getting on my nerves! I have been stuffed up and not being able to breath at night! I have rubbed my nose with Vick's...didn't work! I have gone through countless boxes of Kleenex's and still nothing! So today I asked my dear husband to help me out and get me some nasal spray! Then I had an idea! (Which rarely happens!) I hardly ever watch Oprah, but about a month or so ago I happened to watch it when Dr. Oz was on! He has some really GREAT tips and I really like watching Oprah when he is on, because I don't have to listen to her outrageous ideas! He mentioned for Cold/Allergy relief to use Neti-Pot! It looks like a little pot and you put it up to your nostril and pour water into it and it is supposed to come out the other nostril. Sounds GROSS right? So Nolan searched ALL OVER Farmington for a Neti-Pot to help out his poor wife! FINALLY he found one! He came home and I did it right away!
It WORKS!! It really works! Almost immediately I felt relief! You feel totally stupid doing it, but it works! I don't have the sinus headache, the sniffs, the blowing my nose every 5 minutes now! I am going to do it again before bed tonight to see if I sleep better! AHHH!
HOW DO YOU SPELL RELIEF?

For another gross but cool - ear candles. They work like a vacuum and pull out the nastiness that is in our ears. Love them but I don't know where to get them here. There was a great whole foods store in Orem. Maybe I should find a neti pot for Darren. He has terrible sinuses.

Heidi- My dad bought some ear candles! I will have to ask him where he got them! You can get a Neti pot at walgreens or target! it's worth the $15!

That is so funny! I was reading an article in woman's day and it was talking about that. I called my mom and told her and she said she didn't know anything about them and she thought we'd probably have to order it off the internet...I'll have to tell her they exist in Farmington. It totally sounded gross, but I was sooo willing to try anything. I still have an ear infection too...ask your dad where the ear candles came from and if they are painful...i hate putting stuff in my ears.

Brandi-I think my dad bought the ear candles on line! They are actually pretty cool! They get alot of junk out! It's pretty gross! Tell your mom to check at Walgreens or target for the neti pot! You can also buy them online!

I LOVE my neti pot. I have chronic allergies, and it helps. We couldn't find one of those for a while so I was using a sippy cup... now THAT feels stupid (yet insanely genius at the same time).
