Home Made Sinus Remedies

Even before Jack's stomach flu began, he's been having increased secretions and difficulty breathing at night due to that ever changing barometric pressure. Our family doc suggested Breathe Right Strips. I told him that I figured the concept would work but reminded him that Jack (who was not present) had an unusual nose and the Breathe Right Strips just didn't do their thing on him. "No problem," he said. He put his fingers on my face and showed the effect I was trying to create and said, "Just use band-aids." David laughed at me when I did this but it worked!


My bloggy friend Sheila also sent me these great tips from her Wellness Blog. I'm going to try these too (on me and Jack).

Oh, Jack has a cute little nose. Cute as a button. Hope it worked! Everyone gets so miserable when they kids are sick. (and the hubs. God forbid THEY get a cold). Hope Jack feels better soon and thanks for using my links in there! That was very nice!

So HOW do the bandaids work? I can't quite figure it out, especially underneath the eyes?

I love pictures of sleeping children; Jack looks so peaceful!

Poor kid! As a fellow sinus sufferer, I can relate:( I always wondered how those breathe-right strips work. Did Jack keep the bacnd-aids on?

I wish you all health and peace of mind.

Poor little thing. Glad those strips worked.

I'm sure that Band-aids are less expensive than Breathe Right strips too! I'm glad they are working for him.
