Natural Remedies & Cures
Self-created super bugs are indeed scary and threaten your good health.
The following natural remedies for Sinus Inflammation may be of help, but do check with your doctor before use.
Foods Than Can Irritate the Sinus Include Milk, Eggs, Cheese, Wheat-Based Products, Spicy Foods, & those foods which are Rich in Potassium
Eliminate foods that tend to forum mucous and those that are notorious for triggering allergies. Here is our short list: wheat products, dairy products such as cheese, milk and eggs, and spicy foods.
Grapefruit seed extract may be useful in combating sinus issues. Do not take on an empty stomach.
Foods rich in potassium may assist in drying up your sinuses.
Potatoes and bananas are two rich natural sources of potassium. Potassium supplements are also available but should only be taken upon the advice of your physician.
Individuals with certain health issues could be put at risk as their bodies are unable to effectively eliminate potassium from the body. Those at high risk include diabetics and heart patients.
Apple Cider Vinegar works well in thinning mucous and relieving sinus pressure. Add 1 to 2 teaspoons to 8 ounces of water and drink. May be prepared as a natural sinus remedy throughout the day.
Oil pulling is a natural sinus remedy rooted from India and may be effective in relieving sinus congestion.
The process is simple: upon waking in the morning - or at least 4 hours after an individual has eaten (1 hour after they have consumed a beverage), the individual uses 1 Tablespoon of sunflower or sesame oil (NOT the toasted sesame oil as found in the Oriental section at the local market) and vigorous swishes the oil around in their mouth - through the teeth with chin tilted high for about 10 minutes OR until the oil turns into a white foam. The oil should not be swallowed. Spit, then rinse mouth thoroughly, then drink 2 cups of water.
Saline spray may help clear out the sinus cavities and alleviate pain.
We do not recommend any concoctions involving hydrogen peroxide as a nasal spray without a doctor's permission as this practice can create a super bug. When an infection is not wiped out, it can strengthen into a super bug.
Using water rather than oil (as in the oil pulling method referenced above) is safe and can assist in eliminating sinus pressure.
Bolster your immune system with Vitamin C which naturally fights infection and can build your immunity so that a sinus infection may never knock at your door again.
Brushing the teeth can stimulate the senses and help relieve sinus pressure.
