First up this week, we have the pilot whose blocked sinuses cause him great discomfort, especially while he flies the skies. What can he do to relieve this stubborn blockage? One reader, who suffered from this condition for 14 years, cleared up her sinuses for good in days with a Vega testing/homeopathic treatment approach (www.danplus.dk for more information). Other suggestions to relieve the congestion include Hopi ear candles; lymphatic drain massage; acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine; Buteyko breathing exercises; steam inhalations with menthol or olbas oil; and the digestive enzyme, serapeptase, which helps to hoover up dead and inflamed tissue within the body. Even the humble garlic has purported unplugging power. One reader suggests either eating chopped up fresh garlic on a slice of buttered bread and/or swallowing a whole garlic clove, every hour, until relief is sought. For those who actually have a social life (they don't call garlic "the stinking rose" for nothing), high strength garlic pills, three times a day may be a less pungent option. Eliminating all dairy products from your diet would help reduce production of mucous. And if utter desperation calls, one reader says he has been using the drug guaifenesin (after diligent research over its safety, he adds) and found it to be helpful in breaking down the mucous build-up.
