Health Tip of The Week: Neck Pain- How to Sleep on Sides

When you sleep on back,use this way:
“Roll a towel up and place it under the back of your neck to support your neck when you sleep at night.
Adjust the height of the towel according to your cervical curvature and your comfort.”
But when you sleep on sides, you need a higher pillow.
Why?
Let me explain: Not enough support will cause your neck injury and(or) shoulder blade injury.
Measure the length from the edge of your head to the edge of your shoulder. It should be much longer than the support of your cervical curvature.
Preparing a small pillow beside your head, when you turn on sides add the small pillow on to your regular pillow.

Health Tip of the Week:Relieve an Irritated Throat

You can treat an irritated throat by gargling with salt water at the very beginning of a cold to help reduce swelling and
relive discomfort.
To make salt water, fill a half glass of water and mix in 1 teaspoon of salt.
Gargle with salt water and spit it out.  Wait for 5 minutes, and then gargle with normal water and spit it out.
This is a good way to soothe an irritated throat and prevent the cold from getting worse.
