Help is on the way

Have you ever stood in the allergy aisle at the grocery store or your local convenience store? There are decongestants, antihistamines, non-drying sinus, cold & sinus, daytime, p.m., 12 hour, 24 hour, sinus & allergy, nighttime nasal decongestant, nighttime cold… need I go on?

The bandage aisle is the same… tough strips, clear, fabric, sheer, sport, Transformers, Hello Kitty… you get it.

It is hard to be prepared when there are so many options. There’s a new company that is trying to change all that.
Help Remedies is putting simple back into first aid. The company’s Web site is even simple. (I played the game on the front page too… I have too much time on my hands.) The products are, “I have a headache,” “I have allergies,” “I have a blister,” “I have an aching body,” “I can’t sleep,” and “I’ve cut myself.” Easy enough, right?

Then, head down to the American Red Cross – Dallas Area Chapter for a refresher (or new)
course on how to fix yourself… er, utilize proper first aid. The courses are just like that: simple. On your way out, you can stop by the bookstore and grab a simple First Aid kit too. Afterward, you will be inspired to save a life, maybe your own.

So, next time you are standing in the aisle wondering if you have a migraine or sinus headache, go for the easiest bottle and swing by the Red Cross on your way home. Who says simple is overrated?
