spring allergies big news GMA,Real Simple Redbook

For those of us who suffer from the dusting of the pollen fairies green carpet covering cars,decks,in our hair and nose-take heart!

Washing the pollen off regularly is the BEST way to fight allergic reactions makes sense .it’s just the process of rinsing the nose  that sounds strange.

Jala “neti” means “clean your nose daily” and  is actually an ancient method of staying healthy. The sinus is open from side to side of the nasal area and it’s easy and  actually refreshing to rinse  with warm salt water. You understand that the pollen around us ends up in the nose and  trapped by the sinus lining. This pollen accumulates there -no wonder we get stuffy and feel bad.

I believe this is the tooth brush for the sinus and we are not doing a good job of taking care of our sinus health.

Meds have side effects to include blood sugar impairment,blood pressure elevation,mood swings,endocrine disfunction..and the list goes on and on.

Not to mention you feel either drowsy or hyper. This will affect your metabolism-a system that needs to be healthy to keep you slim!

All of this is common sense and as easy as brushing your teeth,washing your face and getting a good night’s sleep.

Take care and lets feel better this spring!

How to reduce those spring allergy symptoms

Ok gang-everyone is starting up the seasonal chorus”My allergies are terrible already!”. Yes, the flora is proliferating and procreating and pollen is the result. The price we all pay for the beautiful blooms and bountiful green stuff heralding spring. Think about this: how does pollen get into our body to start all those “ahhhchoos” and the watery itchy eyes? YOUR nose!! So would rinsing the sinus regularly help, ya think? Yes.Yes. Yes.

And, rinsing regularly with a sea salt solution helps to reduce allergic reactions long term.

Inexpensive,proactive,refreshing immediate relief!

I always think about common sense solutions for problem  like, for example, a hang nail.Lets say you have a hangnail and never wash it. Would that eventually cause a problem requiring medical treatment? Yes.Possibly antibiotic treatment, something that should be used sparingly. But we understand washing that hangnail will significantly reduce the chance of infection, thus avoiding expensive, unnecessary  medical intervention.

Right?

Ok rinsing the sinus of bacteria,pollen,(even fungus-yuck!) is the same process-we call this a  proactive health practice!

Using simple common sense practices to deal with common health problems.

(kind of like the principle behind brushing teeth…?)

End of story.

Happy Spring,

Isabella
