First full day out of my sickbed, joy joy. The fever and muscle pain were gone, but I had these awful sinus headaches that made me want to pound my head against the wall. I suspect the medication I’d taken was preventing the gunk in my system from coming out. I tried sleeping on a stack of pillows to keep my head elevated so the gunk could drain, but all I got was a stiff neck. In desperation I googled ‘congestion headache cures’, and found all sorts of home remedies (cayenne pepper, salt sprays, Vicks Vaporub). I read on Earthclinic.com that apples cure sinus headaches; I ate an apple and before I even finished it the pain was gone. Apples cure congestion! From now on I’m eating an apple a day and keeping a permanent supply of apple cider vinegar in my kitchen.
