Oh the wonders of spring! The delight of warmer weather, the beautiful blue skies, the wonderful new growth on the trees! Oh the amazing pain in the sinuses! Just bending over to put a plant into the ground makes your head want to explode!
I have received numerous phone calls from clients desperate for help with their springtime allergies. Here are a few things I recommend.
Use a neti pot twice a day. By flushing the sinuses you help to break up the congestion and relieve the pressure. Into the pot add distilled or previously boiled water and a teaspoon of natural non iodine salt. Adding more salt or a bit of baking soda is fine if that cuts the sting of the water. Many prefer warm water, I like mine on the cooler side (less of a gag reflex with cooler water). If I really have a stubborn sinus congestion I add a 1/4 teaspoon of colloidal silver. Buy Natural Wound Care Here. It may sting-but it does clear up the congestion.
doTerra’s Tri Ease is amazing in calming down the seasonal reactions. Start taking it when you feel the ichies coming on.
Take 1/2 teaspoon of Colloidal Silver in a drink every 4 hours. Bacteria cannot live in the presence of silver, so this works as a natural antibiotic. Just like an antibiotic it is not to be taken on a regular bases. For most sinus conditions taking it for a couple of days does the trick.
Add a few drops of Breath into a bowl of boiling hot water and hold your face over the steam. Of course not so closes to burn yourself! Drape a towel over you head to trap the steam and inhale deeply. The oils in the water are soothing to the sinuses and break up the congestion.
Defuse doTerras Breath essential oils into the air of the home.
Common sense should rule. If these steps don’t help you out, consult your Doctor.
The next thing to consider is getting rid of your allergies completely. This is not as difficult as you may think, if you are motivated! Interested in learning more? Check out my website https://sheilaryan.org and give me a call!
