Hum Your Way to Health

Last week I came down with the dreaded cold.  Colds always seem to come at the worst time,  although I don’t know if there are good times to be sick.  Anyway, many people try to cure a cold with different medicines that make you sleep or keep you awake enough to make it though the day.  I was never a fan of the medicine.  If I’m sick I really don’t want to try to make it through the day being miserable when I would much rather be laying in bed sleeping.  Sleeping would probably cure my cold much faster than trying to ignore the fact that I have one.  I’m getting off subject here.  What I’m wanting to get at is a recent study about a simple way to help cure these nasty sinus illnesses.

I’m sure you have heard of whistle while you work, but have you heard of humming while you’re sick?  The new study put out by The American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine says that if you are suffering from a sinus infection you can simply hum your pain away.  Sounds simple, right?  The study explains that humming helps open the inflamed sinus allowing air to pass through.  This can also help with congestion.  Too bad I’m over my cold or I would try this out!  Check out the entire article for yourself and start singing humming a happier tune during the cold season!
