Allergies On The Run

Post by Tim Daneliu » Thu, 31 Dec 2009 06:33:57


Dear Flabby -

I like to run ... a lot .. even in the cold, rain, snow, and sleet.
However, in my old age I've developed a fairly unpleasant set of
seasonal allergies that are particularly pronounced in the fall and
winter, and to a smaller degree spring.  No *** tried to-date (all
entirely legal) have had much effect.  It's difficult to run and
hork goobers (this is the scientific description) and I'm interested
in how other runners deal with this.

Signed,
Phlegmboy Horkerishous

Maybe the illegal ones will work better?

Why do you suspect allergies?

It has been thus diagnosed by the doctoring folk.

Rinse your sinus with salt water. You won't need *** again. There are kits
sold in drug stores specifically for this purpose. I suffered allergies for
over 40 years before doing the salt rinse. I haven't taken any medication
since.

How often/when do you do this?  I assume you're talking about something
like this?

Since it is saline solution there is really no limit. I've had a sinus
infection and did it 3 or 4 times a day. Without having to take anything
else. I don't like the teapot method. I prefer the squeeze bottle. Less
messy, more control of flow. Now my sinus is good and cauterized by salt I
might go months without having to do it again. The first stuffy nose I get,
salt rinse. Over and done.

Hmmm, I've used saline before to overcome the dryness of air travel, but never
for allergies.  I'll give this a shot.  Thanks.

It works great if you follow religiously, my wife got over with a ***
sinus infection. I agree with Bill, squeeze bottles are a lot easier to use.
I use them occasionally if I think coming down with a cold instead of
taking pills.

I third that.  Neilmed's squeeze bottle is sold in most major drug
store chains; it works well.  Likely, any others work well too - it's
a simple enough technology.
