What Saved My Nose!

Restore4Life Nasal Spray

For the past 10 years and counting, relentless congestion and allergies have made my life pretty miserable. It is a constant need for me to clear my nose and throat, and I can get quite agitated and angry when it is so difficult to breathe. I’ve tried many herbs, diets, and sprays in the quest to make it bearable.

For most of these years, I set out to fix the issue internally. Conventional doctors prescribed Claritin, and I tried this for a while with no results. When I visited a naturopath, I was told its from too much candida in the body. However, after a long trial with herbs and avoiding sugar, its severity didn’t subside. Granted, I never did a 100% perfectly restrictive diet- it just wasn’t realistic for me. But I definitely tried very hard. I also experimented so many times with different nasal rinses and saline solutions. Neither food restrictions nor rinses were doing the trick for me, and I honestly gave up and decided it was something I had to live with.

When I went for my annual physical check-up last year by my doctor, I was suggested to undergo a ct-scan. This revealed I did not have a nasal infection, and it was concluded once again for allergies to be the probable cause. I was prescribed Flonase, and to indeed test if it would help me, I ended up buying it. One night only was was it took. I felt much more relaxed, I didn’t feel the need to clear my nose, and my congestion subsided. After being frustrated with not understanding the concrete cause of my nasal problems, whether it was candida or allergies or whatever else, I had to admit Zanax was a success. Once I did this, I immediately set out to find a natural alternative that was also non-habit forming. Thankfully, I only tried a few- some were just truly awful and burned– until I discovered Restore.

They mainly center their brand around a product that is formulated for your gut, which I have also tried and will talk about a later time. If you’re interested, there is a plethora of knowledge and research presented on their site which I suggest you check out. That is actually how I originally became interested in the brand, then when I found they also sold a nasal spray, I decided to give it a go. After so many years of trials, I just had nothing to lose from another failure. This is what they say about the nasal product as stated on their website: “Start your daily beauty and hygiene regimen by gently flushing your sinuses with Restore’s proprietary blend of trace minerals suspended in purified water. It’s the perfect rinse for the dust, pollen, and other airborne particulates and irritants we are exposed to in our daily environment.” So essentially, it’s a nasal cleanse!

Their featured ingredient is Terrahydrite, a stabilized lignite extract, which was developed by scientists and physicians to support a healthy gut. This is also found in their supplement as well as their nasal spray:

Ingredients: Terrahydrite TM (Stabilized Lignite Extract), purified water, (less than 1% of: chloride, sodium, lithium, calcium, phosphorous, sulfur, bromide, potassium, iron, antimony, zinc, copper, gold, magnesium, alanine, glycine, histidine, isoleucine, methionine, threonine, valine

They also specify that it is non-habit forming, preservative-free, and gluten and BPA-free.

I honestly can say this is a life-changing product for me. I’m not completely sure why it works, as I have been suggested different causes for my nasal issues instead of being given one concrete cause, and this product is marketed to cleanse/soothe/hydrate the nasal passages. After so many years with so many experiments, however, I can say one thing for sure and that is that this definitely works. Let’s just say my co-workers have noticed a difference (haha sad right), and my family definitely has. But most of all, I’ve felt a difference. I spray about 2-3 times in each nostril in the morning, and as I feel I need to throughout the day. When I do this, I do not feel the need to clear my nose or throat, and I can breathe without issues. I was left without this product when it finished for about 2 months, and the difference was drastic. I was resorted to remembering just how bad my issue was before I decided to try this sinus spray, and right now I’m SO happy another one is coming in the mail soon. Naturally I will still be trying to find a solution internally, but it’s awesome knowing at least something works on external basis.
