Thomas Hennessy, Jr., selected May 12th to be our international awareness day back in 1992. He knew that May 12th had also been the birthday of Florence Nightingale. She was the English army nurse who helped to found the Red Cross as well as the first school of nursing in the world.

    Does anyone have nasal congestion worsened on eithier Rich's or Fredd's protocol?

    I have noted that my night time congestion has worsened on starting methylation.

    I have nasal congestion, too, but it's from allergies, not methyl donors. Here's a few things that help me.

    I'm sure you know about the neti pot, but adding Alkalol solution to the salt and baking soda I ordinarily use helps clear congestion temporarily:

    I always wake in the middle of the night, and I use a hypertonic nasal spray. I let it stay in a few minutes, and then blow my nose. It feels more clear afterward. I find it much more effective than regular saline spray.

    @perchance dreamer I do use Neil med hypertonic nasal spray, but it can be hit or miss. I take just before bed and it sometimes works initially, the nose is clearer but find when I wake up in the more my nostrils are partially congested but very interested in Alkalol-nasal I could try it with my neti pot. Thanks very much!!
