I'm really sorry this posted more than once. I wasn't aware that happened and I don't know what I did.
Yes I try to get my 55 ounces most days. (I way 110 lbs) even when I do I wake up very dry. I have chronic nasal congestion and post nasal drip and I have tried nose sprays, neti pot, sinus rinse, and other decongesting herbal formulas and OTC medicine, which by the way dry you up. Nothing works. I haven't done a sleep study yet and am considering it, however I don't have any symptoms of sleep apnea. But thanks for the suggestions.
I did some searching online and found several home remedies that I'll try and others might be interested in. Namely, increasing fluid intake, cayenne pepper, fennel seeds, slippery elm, oil pulling, aloe Vera, lemon, and grape seed oil. Last night I put some lemon slices in water and sipped it during the night. It helped better than plain water.
For canker sores these remedies were given, honey, coriander, licorice root, moist tea bag, aloe vera, tea tree oil, baking soda, peroxide, sage, fresh onion, and cayenne pepper. I am swishing aloe Vera and also baking soda and peroxide. I also found a DGL powder that I might try. It's also good for ulcers, acid reflux and other digestive issues. Maybe after a month of Whole 30 all these problems will clear up. Wouldn't that be great?!
Thank you your time.
