Natural Relief for Sinus Congestion
Sinus congestion is miserable, whether it is caused by a cold, the flu or allergies.

Unfortunately, over-the-counter remedies like pseudoephedrine and synephrine can dry you out, increase your heart rate and blood pressure, and rev you up so much you can't sleep at night.

Allergy drugs like diphenhydramine can make you sleepy and are unsafe to use if you need to be alert during the day or drive a car.

Fortunately, there are natural interventions that will clear your head without dangerous side effects. These options are also safe for people with heart or blood pressure issues.

For instance, a combination of eucalyptus and myrtle oil in a small capsule can deliver hours of freedom from congestion.

Special guest, Cheryl Meyers, shares ways you can effectively achieve relief from sinus congestion without compromising your health and safety.
