Sick of Feeling Sick

Posted in Family Updates

If you have your health, you have everything, or so the saying goes. It means more to you than all the money in the world and most people would trade their riches for feeling good, especially if they have some sort of ailment. It takes on a toll on the psyche to always be feeling sick. You, in effect, get sick of it. You look for medical solutions and visit multiple physicians in search of the Holy Grail of allergy remedies, for example. Allergies are persistent and hard to combat. Not all over the counter medications work, and those what do make you feel sleepy. Allergy sufferers, you know of what I speak. We are all in the same boat. We search the Internet for that miracle cure and it turns out to be some sort of bogus pill or vitamin. I feel bad at certain times of the year when the weather wreaks havoc on my allergies.

I got so desperate that I joined an allergy support group. People meet and divulge their particular problems and what solutions they adopt. If nothing else, we give each other moral support about all the watery itchy eyes, the sneezing and stuffed up nose. Oh, if only we could breathe a deep breath. How marvelous that would be. At one meeting, a doctor attended to give a lecture since he was a specialist. He suggested a humidifier for allergies that we could add to all our other remedies. He has read studies and talked with patients and the evidence shows that these humidifiers do help. He brought some literature with him and passed it out. He also had made contact with a vendor who would sell the proper recommended humidifier to members of the group for a discount. All we had to do was to offer a testimonial for public advertising if they worked.

After the humidifiers had been given out, we all used them for an agreed upon month. We then met again and compared notes. Everyone agreed enthusiastically about the efficacy of the appliance when used along with normal allergy medication. When you have allergies you have to purify the air in your home and keep it sparkling clean and free from allergens and pollutants. The humidifier adds moisture to line the nasal and throat passages to make you feel more comfortable when you are having an attack. We wrote a thank you note to the vendor and each one added a heartfelt testimonial that he could use to show prospective clients. As for the doctor, he was so grateful that he agreed to keep pamphlets in his office for other patients.

It is clear that it takes several solutions combined to help everyone with allergies because they are often of a different kind. Ask your doctor and your pharmacist what they recommend among the many products found on the store shelves. Then get the best home humidifier and set it up in your bedroom.
