Anyway, back when I was unable to curl up with my echinacea tea and honey, I had to find an alternative. I wouldn't find an alternative on the shelves at my local drugstore, as I'm advised to avoid over the counter medication unless I'm in dire need of it. I would find my alternative in the motherland- Whole Foods, or as some call it, Whole Pay Check. But really, it's a Heaven on Earth for people like me. I found Hyland's Defense Sinus homeopathic medication, which is dye, alcohol, and sugar free, and contains 100% natural ingredients. I still use it because it really does work. I just put 3 small tablets under my tongue to dissolve and in no time, I feel so much better.
