Cedar Fever and Allergies

Cedar Fever and Allergies

Over the years in Austin, I have had my share of sinus related issues. ‘Cedar Fever’ is something that results from a build-up of pollen in the body and can really manifest into flu-like symptoms. Austin is also known as the allergy capital…we’re number one!
As a member of the Alternative Healing community, I wanted to share my research and insight in this area of well-being. The way I discern information off the web is by taking several sources and finding the common threads to see what resonates and this case, there is a lot of trial and error that goes into process.
When working at optimum health, the mucus in the sinus cavities are moved out of the respiratory system by tiny hairs called cilia. When the cilia are unable to move mucus out of the nostril, bacteria can build up and cause an infection.
In the case of dealing with sinus issues, there is a valid argument to treating the symptoms, since they appear beyond the point of taking precautions. Sinus headache, watery eyes, sore throat, sinus swelling, fatigue and sneezing are a few of those symptoms. I personally don’t like over the counter antihistamines and decongestants. As a result, I have tried several things and only recently did I discover some of these things methods of relief that I will list as what to do and what not to do.

What not to do:
* Limit outdoor activity. It is good to get blood circulation by going outside
and exercising, but you should avoid the hours of 5am to 10am as this is the
best time for pollen release.
* Avoid humidity levels over 50% and less than 20%
* Don’t drink iced beverages
* Avoid blowing your nose, especially blowing hard
* Stay clear of extreme air temperatures both hot and cold
* Avoid mucus causing foods such as cheese, dairy and peanut butter
* Avoid smoke and drinking alcohol
* Limit stressful physical and mental activities
* Avoid damp weather

What to do:
* Take hot showers (the old reliable method)
* Apply warm compress on sinuses for 3 min, followed by one minute of rest
and one minute of cold compress
* Irrigate the sinuses using a saline solution with a spray system or the
use of a Neti pot. This can be done several times a day using a nasal
irrigator
* Chew papaya enzymes, especially at night when the cilia ‘sleeps’
* Yoga tai Chi or similar exercises that act as a decongestant
* Clear Ease Natural Fruit Enzyme
* Place a humidifier to bring bedroom to 20% humidity (preferably a cool-
mist)
* De-humidifier to reduce humidity to 50% or less
* Use clean bedding to reduce dust mites, mold and allergens
* Sinus tapping (EFT) and Lymph Draining
* Drink plenty of water and take Vitamin C
* Warm drinks such as herbal teas help drain the mucus
* Capsicum (found in Chile peppers) is an active pain and inflammation
control ingredient which can clear nasal congestion
* Massage to help with circulation

A good homeopathic remedy is Zicam Allergy and some Nasal Steroids have been proven very effective with little to no side affects. I recommend working with a doctor and getting in to see one, especially if the conditions persists or worsens within a few days of treatment. It has also been my experience that Nasal Spray decongestants can aggravate the problem after a few days of use. I hope this is helpful and in some way can bring ease to anyone suffering from allergy problems. ~R~

One of the joys of my work is receiving things like this. As a skeptic and someone who works with them, I have been fed golden nuggets of information that help you believe in things that you have stood for. This is one of those times! ~R~

Thanks Lawrence!

Natalee Holloway and the Search for Peace

Natalee Holloway

I was stepping out of the shower a few years back and a movie began to play in my head. This vivid motion picture was displaying images of the brutal death of a young woman. I soon came to understand that the disturbing visual display was unveiling the details around the death of Natalee Holloway.

As a psychic and medium, I regularly engage the of activity connecting with deceased loved ones. This was very different from my other experiences, in that it was totally unsolicited and involved a hideous unsolved crime. It is hard to know what to do or how to feel around such communications, but after careful consideration I followed my heart and decided to contact the authorities.

The FBI, Aruban authorities and Texas Equisearch were not interested, and I can’t blame them after I discovered how many psychics were working on this case. There was a vortex of psychic stories from several sources in this case and I am sure that I was not the only one answering the cries of this beautiful young woman. I think she called out to many in the aftermath of her loss. Besides, I was more interested in helping the parents.

After several attempts to contact her parents, I was finally guided to find the work address of her father. I sent him a letter disclosing some of the details that I received with hopes of bringing comfort to the situation. I went to the post office to mail the letters and stopped at the door. I stood there and asked Natalee to go with the letters if she wanted my help. As I gave the letters to the woman behind the counter, she touched the envelopes and without missing a beat said “It’s a shame what happened to that girl”. I am sure I looked a little surprised as she continued “We all know them boys did it…..I feel sorry for the parents.” I just nodded and smiled at the postal employee.

That was my affirmation that Natalee was ‘on it’ and a few days later, I received a response from her father telling me that the theory I presented was one of three that the authorities had been working on since the beginning. He was very kind and I felt complete with my responsibility.

The night before the famous 20/20 report came out with a taped confession of Joran, Natalee returned to me as I retired for the evening. I found myself waving my arms uncontrollable while I was in bed that night. The next morning I searched the web for information and pulled up a picture of Natalee in her cheer leading outfit. She was leading cheers with me over the new developments in the case!

That night I watched, with chilling effects, as Joran described what happened. It was exactly as Natalee had shown me in the original visual. I felt some relief as I watched her mother talk about how justice was never on the radar…..it was finding out what happened to her daughter. She recently spoke to a group of people about the tragedy as she brings awareness to the dangers of traveling to foreign lands. That article can be viewed at
