I have the world’s worst allergies.
Sometimes I get attacked by flu symptoms that are so rough I have to call out of work.
I’ve become an expert at different flu symptom remedies that have worked to help me cope, but even then, I have to wait until my body’s immune response kicks in. Something that I found especially helpful is to get warm by sitting in front of a gas furnace or using a different heat source. Our bodies like to sweat things out when we’re sick, so occasionally, I sit in front of our portable gas furnace to feel better. If it isn’t too hot outside and my dust sensitivities are relentless, I will really turn up the thermostat so that the whole house becomes my very own sauna. I can’t say that my energy bills aren’t steep, but I’m super glad that I have an energy-saving heater. Another way I alleviate my dust sensitivities is to set up my portable gas furnace and sit in front of it for quite some time. I’d only suggest doing this for a couple of hours at a time because those heating systems get very hot and having that direct heat on your face for too long can potentially burn you. The final way that I supply heat to my body when going through flu symptoms is to use the gas furnace from a steam inhaler, which is akin to a water gas furnace that opens up the sinus passages. I have a knack for finding different ways to take care of my body.
