Who Nose Best?

My sinus allergies had taken a toll.  Last year, I saw my primary physician too many times to count with the constant complaint about my clogged nasal passages.  I sounded like a symphony – honking, sniffing, blowing.  My fiancé teasingly called my his girlfriend, Mort.  It reminded me of a joke I used to tell as a youngster, don’t kiss your honey if your nose is runny, you may think it’s funny, but it’s snot!  lol

All jokes aside, my doctor and I lamented over treatment.  Measures included nasal sprays, Sudafed, Zyrtec, Clairton, and antibiotics.  All tried and true for temporary relief or perhaps a good night’s sleep only to return to my symphony honking, sniffing, blowing.

I was telling my dear resourceful friend, Merideth Tall about my struggles and she suggested I contact The Sinus Ninja.  Now, I’m open to alternative medicine – trust me, I’ve had acupuncture, biofeedback, and imbibed many holistic tinctures to treat various ailments over the years.  So I was open and optimistic as I crawled onto Dr. Frank Aversano aka Sinus Ninja’s chair.  With my face cradled forward in the chair, Dr. Frank proceeded to apply eucalyptus, rosemary and other natural substances to sticks.  He told me it would not hurt, but would feel uncomfortable.  That was an understatement as I tried to breath and meditate that the pain was part of the gain to healing.

Well, it’s been 48 hours and I am happy to report that I am Sudafed free!  Although I’m still slightly congested, my nasal symphony  no longer has a conductor. Simply put,  I slept through the night.

I will see the Ninja Doctor for three more weeks and if you are stuffed up, I suggest you get stuck up!
