I suppose

…most people would say that age is a factor in allergies. I, preferring to be ageless, think there seems to be more allergens around (what with all the hybrid-breeding happening–who knows what they’re creating in pollen). Whatever the cause, I’ve had a headache for the past two weeks straight and this weekend I’ve lived on heavy doses of coffee and ibuprofen. I’m not able to take an antihistamine so I must rely on what is available. I thought maybe I should try something more herbal, more natural (what is natural these days?) or homeopathic, so I looked up some remedies on the net. This remedy seems a little easier to carry out, but this one confused me, what kind of match do they want, two thumbs? My father tried the match trick once to remove a tick from the nape of my hairline (although luckily for me, I had a short curly fro when I was young)–he lit the match, thought he’d put the match out, and then put the match to the tick (this was supposed to cause the tick to back out of the fleshy burrow of my head without any fuss); however, the match was still lit and whoosh… well, you get the picture. I suppose that says something about home remedies–or not.

  1. Of the three, I vote for a lock of hair under a stone – though by mentioning it in advance, haven’t you already nullified the effect?

  2. Actually, for any upper bronchial and sinus problem, try Osha, available at Nature’s Best on 14th Avenue between Lorne and Cornwall. It works best when 10 drops are mixed with a quarter cup warm water and 1/8 tsp salt and gargled as far back in the throat as possible for as long as possible.

    Good luck with it.

  3. Ariel–I suppose you’re right, and not to mention the fact that I don’t think I can stand to lose one lock on this head anyway (that’s a joke).

    Thanks B-). I’ll look for it and give a try; it has got to be better than a constant headache.
