When dealing with any condition, adding to that all the usual things going on in your life it can almost be overwhelming. Here’s some steps you need to take to solve the problem:

Coffee Nap Anyone...?

What is a Coffee Nap. Basically it’s drinking your coffee quickly then taking a power nap… This gives the caffeine a chance to work, so after that power nap you are more alert. Don’t get me wrong I think it will still help to throw some cold water on your face when you wake up or even take a shower. These seem to be time tested helpers to wake you up. So don’t think you are going to jump out of bed ready to take on the world but it is something Japanesse researchers have found to be true.

All these new terms that are out there these days…tech neck, coffee nap, etc…

Size Does Matter: When It Come To Your Pillow...

Does the pillow for you head sometimes feel like this one? @#!!



Who wants a pillow that is too big or too small. The question often comes up when someone thinks they need a large pillow because they have a king size bed. The large traction pillow, for example, is proportionally bigger. That means it may be too big for your body. So let's say you are 5'9" and have a king size bed; you still want a standard or medium sized pillow. The medium is standard size by the way. You really don't want the large unless you're about 6'1" or so. The only caveat is if you are smaller in height than 6'1" and have a long neck; then maybe the large is for you?

Is Your Pillow Finished?

I recently talked to someone who told me she thinks her pillow is worn out.  She said that she has started getting headaches like she did a few years ago.


I knew right away that she was right, she needs a new pillow.  When something like this happens, it's a tell tale sign your pillow is losing support.  I've talked to people that start to get tingling into their fingers, neck pain, or another symptom.  It's most likely the fact that the pillow haslost support, and instead of maintaining the ideal neck alignment, your neck is flattening out and pressure is accumulating on nerves.


Make it easy on yourself, and as soon as a symptom presents itself, get a new pillow.  It'll have the right support, and if it gets rid of headaches for three years, it's well worth it.

Carpal Tunnel Pain Helped with Natural Pain Relief Gel, Study Shows

A recent study showed that biofreeze natural pain relief gel decreased chronic pain and symptoms associated with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome by as much as 31%. The study conducted in Copenhagen Denmark studied the effects of a placebo cream vs biofreeze on workers in a slaughterhouse.

The Median nerve in the wrist contributes to carpal tunnel syndrome often. When the nerve becomes entrapped due to inflammation of the wrist tissues, a person can have resulting wrist and hand pain. Often people get this type of wrist pain with repetive movement or overusing their wrist.

One of the main ingredients in Biofreeze is menthol. It has helped patients also with arthritis in the knee, neck pain, and lower back pain. Mechanism is through cold therapy where the menthol activates cold receptors to decrease pain.

Open Up Those Sinuses!

Sept 2014 I just saw Dr Oz showing the NetiPot for cleaning out your nose. I can't tell you the benefits of this. If you are doing it before bed, do it 10 minutes or so before because you'll probably need to blow your nose a few times... The pillow will help to open up those sinuses but if they're really clogged, try this.
