Ever have a day that is a double edged sword? It is beautiful out and you wanna do nothing but enjoy every minute But, you have a screaming headache that is getting in your way. Here in Arkansas we are in the time of year when the weather pops up and down in temps. 2 days ago it was freezing at night and 52 degrees high and today it is 74 degrees, sunny, 80% humidity, and WINDY! The end result to this lovely mix = Sinus issues with a matching headache. So, what should you do about it?
Start off with Prayer believing God can fix it !
- For with God nothing will be impossible.” (Luke 1:37)
- But He said, “The things which are impossible with men are possible with God.” (Luke 18:27
Next try out a Neti Pot according to the Mayo Clinic: A neti pot is a container designed to rinse your nasal cavity. You might use a neti pot to treat nasal allergies, sinus problems or colds. In fact, regular use of a neti pot is more effective for nasal allergy and sinus symptoms than are over-the-counter medications. If you are making your own saltwater solution, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends using bottled water that has been distilled or sterilized. I found It will relieve some of that pressure too.
A good HOT cup of Breath Easy tea lends a hand for sure. This can be found in most health food stores & many grocery isles like Kroger’s on Chenal !
And then there is always Alieve or Alka Seltzer Sinus if you just aren’t into the natural way of seeking aid. Or if the natural products just don’t work for you today. As much as I hate to admit it sometimes the above just aren’t enough. But, MOST of the time they work well especially IF you start out seeking God to lend a hand in the matter…many times I never have to go beyond asking Him to “lend a girl a hand” and there He is On time all the Time. When I do have to go beyond prayer it is usually because “I” won’t get out of the way and let Him “Work it out within me.” But, That is another post for another day.
So, if you, like me, are having a double edged sword kinda day: feeling Blessed and Thrilled with the fact it is a beautiful warm day in late November and at the same time Cursed because it is a warm windy day in late November, check out my prescription and see how it works for you. Smile Here’s ones more thing to try: After prayer, do a little writing or posting and glorify God to relieve your mind. It just worked for me. No more Screaming Headache. Hallelujah! Now I can enjoy this fabulous day the Lord has given. SMILE
