Tuesday I was fed up. I've been congested off and on for...**hangs head in shame**...5 years. I'd go through periods of heavy congestion and have to resort to snorting OTC products. Found out early on that certain ones worked others didn't. But, I don't like drugs because no matter how much they help, you'll become dependent. But...i did it for 5 years.
I have been an allergy sufferer all my life, so I ignored the problems as allergies. Then, when I'd blow I'd occasionally have blood, and darkened mucous. that's not allergies.
Well, Tuesday with allergy season starting to tickle my nose and inner ear, I'd had enough...TO THE INTERNET!
I found Dr. Grossan's HydroPulse, received it in the mail yesterday. I've irrigated 4 times so far(just did two this morning) and I've added peroxide per this thread. The way this works is I'm standing up and put the irrigation tube in one nostril, and let it flow out the other. It's supposed to "clear" out of your sinuses after 20 minutes, hasn't yet. I would prefer something that sits rather than passes through.
I'm going to try your recommendation this evening. Wish me luck.
Well, actually, I'm going to try right now. I think this a valid reason to be a little tardy for work.
This has been very informative, glad I found this forum.
