I have a lot of allergy problems. I get about 3-6 sinus infections a year. I had a reconstructive surgery that moved around my jaws (I had a severe underbite). I also can't stand nose sprays.
we have compromised on many things and I have tried many things. the fix for it is another surgery but as he pointed out, suregery is what got me to this state. he said he doesn't recomend surgery unless it gets to be a once a month thing. I have been doing pretty good lately. haven't been to the doctor since april. that is doing pretty good for me. I don't go to doctors for colds as they will threaten me with shots and tell me to take it easy (which I already do)
That's where I'm at, allergies getting extremely bad, combined with frequent/persistant sinus infections.
I am using guaifenisin for it's mucus thinning properties as required and saline flushes, netti pot style, but I'm just using a large syringe. Also drinking oregano tea every day. This just about manages to keep it under control, barely.... if I get run down the sinus infection comes back hard.... I try to limit use of other decongestants, can feel them messing up my fluid/electrolyte balance and my kidneys start to ache after a day or two. Ragweed season just got here and my nostrils are burning again, the allergy remedies seem to be getting less effective and more prone to side effects...
I remember The RoadWarrior..To understand who he was, you have to go back to another time..the world was powered by the black fuel & the desert sprouted great cities..Gone now, swept away..two mighty warrior tribes went to war & touched off a blaze which engulfed them all. Without fuel, they were nothing..thundering machines sputtered & stopped..Only those mobile enough to scavenge, brutal enough to pillage would survive. The gangs took over the highways, ready to wage war for a tank of juice
I do the netti pot though it is about the nastiest thing I have ever done. I don't do it often. my solution right now is two claratins daily (generic ones for cost). I was told that taking two is fine because the does is for the average person and some people do need more than the average.
I may have to try some of the things that you mentioned. I do the saline flushes sometimes. I am not a big fan of stuff up my nose.
Be the change you wish to see in the world
I used to work for a vending company. One time I was asked to do the write offs on a box of miscellaneous product that had been sitting in the back of the warehouse for a couple of years. The twinkies looked just as good as ever, but they were hard as bricks.
