Months have passed by and I finally found a cure for my sinus infection that worked. Doctors, antihistamines, decongestants, and pain medicine only gave me some relief. My sinuses have drained my energy and my valuable time. The one thing I was scared of saved my sinuses. Everyone has a different tolerance to home remedies. I was scared to try this because as a child I was not fond of salt as a home remedy. After researching, soul searching, and listening to my loved ones, I came to a true realization. Salt nasal rinse is the best cure for a sinus infections. I had a choice to use salt alone, or add some extra things in for assistance. I read what was good and bad, for a nasal rinse. However, one night out of desperation I decided to use what I had on hand at home. I made the best out of feeling the worst, and it worked. People say don’t use iodized salt, but instead it’s recommended to use iodine, and sea salt. I only had iodized salt, and figured that’s killing two birds with one stone so I used it. I boiled some water and mixed my first homemade saline rinse. I made sure the rinse cooled down and was warm before i used it, so i didnt burn my nose. This was a scientific experimental risk I was willing to take for the pain and discomfort I was in.
The next thing I needed was a antiseptic, and a soothing cleanser. I decided on peroxide, and baking soda. As I read more saline rinse recipes, I found the three ingredients to be predominantly the main essentials for a outstanding healing rinse. By mixing all three ingredients with the water, I maximized my home remedy for healing my sinus. On day one my nose stopped running, and post nasal drip surpassed. Day two I only coughed randomly, and head conjestion relieved in my eyes, nose, and throat. Day 3 and 4 made my symptoms decrease in discomfort more each day. Now only 5 days later I feel know the difference in my health. I feel 100% better. I’m no longer taking antihistamines, decongestants, and pain relievers. Now I only use the saline rinse. Morning, afternoon and night, I rinse my nasal cavity daily. Up my nose until it runs into my mouth to spit out, is the way to go. At first depending on how congested you are it may not be easy to rinse up into your nose and spit it out your mouth. But I guarantee you as the days go by it gets easier. This is one of the best home remedies I could ask for. It actually worked. Now I no longer have to breathe conjested all day long. I sleep, much better getting proper rest able to breath. Depending on the severity of your sinus conjestion you can only use salt, or add in tthe other two ingredients. Yes I will say that iodized salt worked fine for me. See salt is great, you know your body, so use kosher, or table salt, depending on what’s best for you.
- For maximum decongestion on day 7 I did the upside down rinse.Even though my nose is no longer running, and post nasal drip has stopped. I still had some head sinus pressure left. I lay on the bed with my head falling backwards over the edge. Squirted the rinse into my nose while breathing through my mouth. I held it this way as long as I could. Then pinched my nose jumped up and ran to the bathroom sink to let it drain and blow my nose. I repeated it twice. Will do this twice a day since I’m only feeling a little congested in my head sinus. But I can breath, and smell through my nose.
- Update 2
- 10 days later and I’m doing great. I only rinse once or twice a day now. No more cough, post nasal drip or runny nose. I can breath again without congestion in my nose. My mucus is clear when I rinse. My smell is back 80%. This has saved my sinus. It improves more daily. I’ll keep you posted.
A neighbor in my favorite community garden gave me a special treat. Because of his kindness in sharing his harvest, I was able to try purple green beans for the first time. The magic beans he gave me, went along great with his fresh baby kale.
When you cook these delicious beans they turn from purple to green.
Meal prepping makes life so much easier. One of my daily snacks are fresh veggies sticks. However, no one likes a brown apple, or pear slice, in there snack pack. So I found a new way to meal prep my fruit, and vegetable snack packs to keep them fresh. This way you can save money, and keep your whole family healthy on the go. Plus it’s easy and quick.
Any fruit or vegtable that oxidized after being cut and exposed to air, I soak for 1 minute in 2 tbsp raw honey and 3 cups water. This works great for keeping your food looking fresh, until you eat it. It also cuts back on the acid taste, as if you had used lemon water. My apples, and pear slices taste like honey, instead of lemon.
Last but most importantly, before sealing up my fruit, and vegetable snack packs, I fold a paper towel and place it inside. The paper towel absorbs all moisture, and locks in freshness. I meal prep my snack packs on sunday, making one for everyday of the week. The whole family gets their own too. They last fresh all week long plus a day. So next time you want any fruit, vegtable or herb to stay fresh and crisp, you can make it happen, just by doing this.
For the past few months, I have been to several doctors. I was concerned about the discomfort around my left eye, which was accompanied by headaches, sinus congestion, and post nasal drip. After taking plenty of antihistamines, antibiotics, steroids, sinus, and cold medicines, I was still in discomfort. It constantly felt like my eye was congested, and the consistent post nasal drip gave me a chronic cough. I decided to search the web for a home remedy solution, for what I was able to self diagnose as a sinus infection.
During my search I found a solution of Neosporin Ointment (NOT THE CREAM OR PAIN RELIEF NEOSPORIN IT MUST BE THE REGULAR OINTMENT ).
Apparently it works for eye and ear infections. Most people message boards said to follow the instructions and don’t put it in your eye. However, many reviews said it worked for eye, sinus, and ear infections. I outweighed my options and decided to try it. I looked online to see how to apply it. Most people suggested using a q-tip, so that’s what I did.
You put the Neosporin on the q-tip. Pull down your eye lid, and roll it under your eyelid.
Then close your eyes and lay down. I applied it in my eyes before bed, because once in your eye you need it to melt and coat your eye.It’s hard to see with it in your eye. In the mornings and at night I applied it my nose, and ears as well. I could feel the difference the first time I used it. It does not burn at all. MAKE SURE YOU USE THE OINTMENT NO CREAM OR PAIN RELIEF OINTMENT NEOSPORIN OR IT WILL BURN.
My post nasal drip is finally stopping. I still use a nasal saline rinse 3 times a day as well and I’m almost cured. I tried Zyrtec, Claratin, Benadryl, and Flonase but none worked. The last doctor of 3 I went to suggested I try Allegra, and I’m finally getting full relief. But NEOSPORIN OINTMENT SAVED MY LIFE. I’M ALMOST GOOD AS NEW AFTER ALMOST A YEAR OF POST NASAL DRIP, AND SINUS INFECTION. I said if it worked I would right a blog about it. I would suggest this for kids and adults as a home remedy. I give it 5 stars.
So you have a tree in your yard? It’s bearing so much fruit what should you do? My fruit bearing tree is mango.
I decided to make mango iced tea today. I took 3 mangoes, pealed them and liquefied them in the blender. Then I strained the pulp from the juice, and put the mango juice back in the blender.
I seeped my favorite iced tea bag in 4 cups of boiling water. I added 1/2 lemon, and 1 cup of sugar, and seeped tea to the mango juice. Then I filled the blender with ice. I liquefied the mix, and placed it in the freezer to chill. The end result was mouth-watering mango iced tea. I will try this with other fruit as well.
She said hello ma’am.
He’s said how are you today sir.
As I opened the bathroom door I did not get a stare.
I don’t question which way to go. My steps confirm the direction I am moving in.
You look confused.
I am confident.
The body I was created in tells you who I am.
I am her, and I am him.
There is only one life in me to live.
My acceptance is gained because it is created by honor.
I cannot judge or I would discriminate what I have within.
So when I walk by, don’t stare say high.
Appreciate the human I am.
I am the omnipotent Love that you deny within.
Tears are not my morning dew.
My sunset is always beautiful in its view.
You can try one more time to decide.
But I’ll tell you only once, I am
a humans body.
The echoes of emotions are in my ears.
I’m so enamored by how the vibrations of love make me feel.
The concept of happiness has become my hedonist high.
I no longer imagine it’s existence, I have become the creator of love inside.
Every quake of my steps connect the earth’s magnetism to me.
The wind is blown by the pulse of my heartbeat.
I can feel the currents of rivers run through my veins.
My core is dependent on the life the earth creates.
Reality can’t conceive the love that I contain.
Logic is my sword, honor for life is my shield .
I slay down the enemy of love with every breath that I take.
Hatred is my adversary.
I fear not because I have all power since love generates in me.
My chakras connect to the universe so I am free.
Feel my presence, as the smile of my eyes trickles down your spleen.
Touch my heart as the dimple on my cheek, makes your heart skip a beat.
Not all can conceive the truth in love that flows through me.
All I need is one touch, and watch how one of my six senses will invoke love into thee.
