Head Off Infection

Next time you’re resting your head at your desk, tell your boss that you’re not sleeping, your treating a medical condition.

According to Men’s Health,

If you’ve got a sinus infection, rest your head. New research finds that if you rest your head on a flat surface, twice a day for 20 minutes you will recover more quickly from your sinus infection than those who only take medication. Researchers say it works because fluid pools below the drainage tubes in your sinuses, and changing the angle of your head lets gravity draw the mucus out. Those in the study who rested their heads had less congestion, postnasal drip and sinus pressure in six weeks compared to those who took medication.

NICE!  We will try that!
