Thanks for all the well wishes yesterday, guys! I am feeling a little better but still not 100%
I can’t believe I totally forgot to use my most trusted home remedy during the winter and allergy months.
My Neti Pot!
The Neti Pot: Also know as a “nose bidet” is used to “flush-out” the nasal cavity using a saline solution and warm water. These are used along with the practice of yoga to “cleanse” your nasal passages, and some use it as regularly as brushing their teeth.
Nasal irrigation is used to treat a wide range of chronic sinus and nasal symptoms; for chronic rhinosinusitis it is an effective adjunctive therapy. According to patient self-reports it improves quality of life and reduces use of medication, including antibiotics. Further evidence suggests that nasal irrigation causes relief for both hay-fever and the common cold.
I could have been using this all week and maybe I wouldn’t have gotten so sicky 🙁
Anyway, used it twice yesterday and I felt all cleared up right after. I got a little stuffed again later, but the more I use it the better I am sure I will feel!
Michael and I are off the the hospital today. I have a non-stress test (mostly because I am past my due date and to make sure she’s OK) in the morning then a doctors appointment in the afternoon. We will find out what’s going on with my little stubborn Taurus daughter. Fingers crossed they tell me I am 4cm dilated, going into labor and need to stay. Wishful thinking?
I will try on facebook, still not 100% sure how to update my blog page on there from my phone.
For now…here’s a freaky video of my belly from last night. Michael suggested I capture Ella’s foot running across my stomach alien-style for the bloggie. Check it out from about 51 seconds on.… At 54 seconds you see a foot go from right to left then a bunch of other freaky deeky movements after 😉
Have a great day!!
Do you own a Neti Pot?
