Allergies are apparently very common here in Texas. I am not a fan, by any means. I have had them since December, without knowing it. Finally, I couldn't figure out why I was getting these darn sinus headaches. And they keep getting more frequent. Not fun. They were pretty much taking over my life. As what I have learned about myself in the last year or so, when I am in pain, I just want to lay down and go to sleep. So, once a headache comes on, I want to sleep. The boys don't comply. Weird. But I have found a miracle product! It is weird, crazy, and maybe just plain dumb. But it works for me. And I will continue to use it daily. I am really hoping I am not jinxing myself here. (Let me also preface with saying that I have also tried other random home remedies like garlic, steam, apple cider vinegar, etc.)
It is called Sinus Buster. It is made from the capsaicin in peppers. It is a 'kick in your pants", but worth the couple seconds of stinging discomfort.
Here is some info about the product: Sinus Buster is all-natural, which means it does not contain chemicals, additives or preservatives of any kind. It is non habit forming, zinc-free and has no known drug interactions. And it comes in a recyclable, environmentally-friendly glass bottle.
You can find it at drugstore.com. They have a few different ones and I think I saw a mild sinus buster, but I say just go for it!
Bottom line: if your allergies are unbearable, give it a try. But then again I love jalapenos and anything hot. So I am a little biased.
