for the past few days, i've had a mild sinus headache. i have a tiny bit of congestion, but nothing too major. i get these sorts of headaches when the weather changes from low to high humidity and they tend to arrive in the middle of the night.

does anyone have any suggestions for relief? i've tried sinus irrigation, which works when i have serious congestion, but this time it just made it worse. hot compresses give temporary relief, but i can't walk around all day carrying a hot pack on my face! and btw, i'm bf'ing.

Get yourself a horse radish root. Wash it, grate just enough to eat. Or, I actually cut a small piece off and cut off the rind and eat it. You can do that every hour. Make the pieces small enough so it doesn't take your breath away. Experiment with it.

Here is what I was just making this morning:

You don't have to follow the recipe exactly. You can improvise. But use all ingredients and make sure everything is fresh.

After about 1 hour of letting steep, you can start taking the vinegar by the tablespoon. It's best when it has been steeping for a few days or up to 2 weeks.

Or just use the horse radish. I actually love horse radish. Don't use the prepared, use only the fresh root.

thanks, gitti! i'll try it. i love horseradish, too.

quick question: my 5 mo ds is ebf--do you think the horseradish will bother him? fortunately, he has not been bothered by my diet so far.
