Be Cedar Fever-Free with Nasal Washes

  Cedar fever allergy symptoms are expected to be worse than usual this year in central Texas. The cold and rain in December delayed the tree’s normal spring cycle. As a result the cedar fever pollen counts have been lower than normal so far. But that’s changing.  The late start to the cedar fever season means that the cedar fever allergy season may last a month or two longer and affect more people than usual this year. It could extend into late February, maybe even March and April. And if central Texas gets more moisture, the count will probably be higher than normal, and cedar fever’s peak season may last longer. But even with all of that to worry about, you can be cedar fever-free if you’ll take some simple precautions. If you do, cedar fever can be a thing of the past for you.  Reduce Your Exposure To Cedar Pollen While it’s nearly impossible to completely avoid inhaling cedar pollen, you can significantly reduce your exposure to it by taking some simple, common sense steps. 1. Keep your house and car windows closed and, if your car has a cabin air filter, change it frequently. 2. Wear a mask while doing yard work. Then change your … Read more . . .

Don’t Believe Fish Oil Labels

It’s not surprising that lots of us are taking a fish oil supplement. After all, the government’s National Institute of Health says fish oil is beneficial for many conditions, including: • Heart health  • Cancer  • Mental health  • Learning skills  • Arthritis pain. But Is Your Fish Oil What It Claims To Be? How do you know the fish oil you’re taking really contains what the label says it does? No one verifies it – the FDA doesn’t test fish oil supplements like it does other food and drug products sold in the U.S.   In fact, the FDA doesn’t test or regulate any health or dietary supplement, not just fish oil. With no FDA involvement, we have to rely on the company selling the fish oil to tell us the truth. So it’s concerning when recent news reports say that some dietary supplement products may not actually contain what their labels say they do.  Most companies claim that the label on their fish oil is accurate (of course they do). But it turns out that you don’t have to take their word for it, you can check for yourself. Here’s How You Can Find Out Verifying that your fish oil’s label is accurate may require a couple of steps and take a little time but … Read more . . .

Sinus Problems? Here’s the Best Home Treatment

Sinus problems bothered me for years. I was desperate for a home treatment for my sinus problems. After years of taking over-the-counter medications and antibiotics, I finally went to an ENT doctor for advice.  The ENT doctor explained to me that the sinuses work properly when the mucous in your body is relatively thin. Taking antihistamines and allergy medications dry up your sinuses and makes the mucous thicker. That is really counter-productive. Over-the-counter pills and sprays may relieve your symptoms in the short term. But they’re not effective long-term. And going that route can be very expensive, especially if you have sinus problems several times a year. My ENT doctor wanted me to: 1. Keep myself hydrated by drinking more water (keeps mucous thin and membranes moist) 2. Rinse out my nose and sinuses regularly (cleans allergens like dust and pollen out of the sinuses) and 3. Inhale steam 2-to-4 times a day (this both moisturizes and flushes sinuses and lungs) I followed his advice and haven’t had any significant sinus related symptoms since – and it’s been over four years now. Believe it or not, the home treatment that relieved my sinus problems was just a regular sinus cleaning and maintenance routine.    Simple Home Treatment That Works Here’s … Read more . . .
