5. Soothe a Stuffy Nose Without Medicine.

Plenty of rest and the passage of time will help soothe a stuffy nose, but there’s a simple trick to help it go away faster. Thrust your tongue against the roof of your mouth while pressing down on the space between your eyebrows with one finger. Do this for about 20-30 seconds and you should see significant relief.

are we cool or what? My acupuncturist told me to cough when the needles were going in, simply as a distraction. No pain relief really

Relieving a stuffy nose (#5) is very interesting. I had never heard about it. Accupressure between the eyebrows ... but ... on the roof of the mouth? :) Interesting indeed!

Very, very interesting. We are all guilty of not taking care very well of our bodies. The follies of youth catches up as one gets older. So, watch what you do with your bodies before it is too late. As with everything- it is about respect.
Thank you for sharing.

One amazing thing our bodies are doing is to keep on living despite GMOs and other assorted poisons.

I am grateful that my 70 year old body is in the best of health. But I feel sadness for it, as for a child, because the food I feed it is often unknown poisons. And the same is true of most of us.

Let us love and appreciate our bodies while we have them.
