Better But With Side Effects

I put milk of magnesia diluted in distilled water in my neti bottle and irrigated my nasal passages. It stung a bit and let a kind of weird smell that gave me a bit of a headache but after I rinsed my nose with pure water it subsided after 10-15 minutes. I think my nasal passages were a bit more clearly. If I do this again I think I'll just use a q-tip and swab some MoM in my nasal passages lightly instead of using the neti bottle. But it makes sense that chronic congestion might be fungus, especially if one has problems with candida. Of course modern doctors just told me I'm allergic to dust. Maybe this is what makes it hard to fly on a pane, the constant congestion makes it hard to clear my ears and I get pain when the plane lands (barotrauma). I did read a few people regularly using a saline solution in the neti pots were able to clear the congestion and fly with less pain. I also read another case when a person stopped dairy and was able to fly pain free too. Dairy is in so much though and even I cut it down there's still congestion.
