Oranges=health update

I need to clarify something that Britt pointed out today. Earlier I posted about how mandarin oranges are keeping me healthy and then I got a sinus thing the other day. So he was disputing my science and I just have to say the science is sound I stopped eating them because they were giving me heartburn. I would like to point out that my sinus issue are almost gone now and I firmly believe it is because I didn't take any medicine for it. I used saline spray and used tea tree oil and eucalyptus oil on a cotton ball by my bed at night. I do the same for Alexis and our colds last about 4 days and then we are on good to go. Britt also uses tea tree oil and his colds are short lived too. So we don't waste money on cold remedies anymore. There are a few other things like pressure points to relieve the sinus pain and help them empty too. I never thought I would be on the natural side of things like this, but it is so nice. Don't get me wrong there are still times when modern medicine is absolutely a must. I still believe in vaccinations and antibiotics too, I just think the are alternative ways to handle some things!
