Health care was discussed in a seminar at the RTR, but can't recall the name of the Mexican town that was suggested. Anyone know what that is? Thanks <br>

Hi Cyndi. All is well here and the usual suspect (Mia) is fine too. ;-) Thanks for the info and for thinking about us. <br>

I read something someplace about using Apple cider vinegar to cure sinus infections, but don't recall where. It was something I was about to try because the pain killers and antibiotics I was taking at the time didn't seem to be working. I wound up not doing it because it cleared up the day after things were at their worst.<div><br></div>

Honey and apple cider vinegar is good at cutting congestion etc if you drink it. I have heard of people using neti pots with saline sollution (pickling salt and distilled water .28 grams per ml will make 7%) Not sure what percent you want for the neti pot use though. 7% is what I use for the times I nebulize it.&nbsp;<div><br></div><div>The neti pot is supposed to be great for sinus stuff.

I looked up what a neti pot is, had not heard of one before.<br><A href="" target=_blank></A><br><br>I use a plastic spoon with warm salt water dissolved in it when I have sinus or cold problems.&nbsp;You just&nbsp;close one side of your nose with a finger and snort the water up your nose.&nbsp;Have kleenex ready, it does its job of clearing your sinus'&nbsp;It is not very comfortable but it works.<br>I wish I could only find something good to keep earaches away.<br><FONT color=#ff00ff><b>Dragonfly</b></FONT><br>

My wife gets quite a few infections, and her allergist recommended salt water in very warm water.

Oops dragonfly only beat me too it lol. But DW swears by it.

I use a neti pot and love it! Unfortunately it only helps when you're not completed congested. When you're not it's great for cleaning out allergens and shortening the life of a cold. It didn't really help me much when I was suffering from sinus headaches tho.<div><br></div>

In my experience if you go early, and leave early, there won't be a line. Lots of snowbirds just go for lunch and hit it all at once later in the day. Leave before 10:00 to 11:00 AM and there shouldn't be any line. Last time I was there and got glasses, he wasn't going to have them done till noon, so I said I would come back and get them the next day. Each day I left before 10:30 and there was no line, just walked straight through. Spending an extra $5 for parking the second day was money well spent to avoid a 2 hour wait in line under the hot sun!! Bob <br>
