This is quite a significant financial decision to make, so it’s important to look at all of your options as well as considering your financial future.

On April 22nd, 2016, (a.k.a. Earth Day!) it’s time to give the planet some very needed care and attention. As inhabitants of the world, we should be helping the planet rather than hindering.

Use salt water: Try a saline nasal rinse which helps to clear allergens like pollen from your nasal membranes, in turn minimizing symptoms.
