14 Apr Recommendation Corner: Gold Root Nasal Spray
Some of you may have read my previous article on Chilcuague (Gold Root in English) and if you have, you know I’m a fan. This regional root is rarely talked about, even in the few Mexican states it’s grown, and outside – well, it’s just unheard of.
But Gold Root is really special. And finally someone from the outside has taken notice and is making this super nifty nasal spray for opening sinuses during cold and allergy season. Gone are the days of the netty pot (for me anyway …I always suffered with that one!) On to the greatest root ever! It cares for me while my body fights its environment and all the flowering plants that live in it.
So, this fantastic spray has become my daily regimen.
Previously, I was chewing the root itself and using a mouth and throat spray for sinus related sore throat and oral hygiene. I love both of these options. But when my sinuses are really acting up (and dripping down my throat at night), treating my throat felt incomplete – like treating the symptom rather than the problem. The real problem was originating in my sinuses, causing not only the drip and sore throat, but also headaches and the inability to breathe (ugh!).
Enter nasal spray, stage left.
I’m now using it 3 times a day or so – not even because I feel too stuffed up, but just a as preventative action. ‘Tis the season and I’m already sneezing and rubbing my eyes, but my clogged sinuses have been practically non-existent since I’m using my nasal spray regularly.
