Top Five Home Remedies for Sinus Infection

February 23, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 173

Sinus infection symptoms may begin with a headache or fever and progress into much more noticeable symptoms such as swelling of nasal cavities, difficulty breathing, and itchy, watery eyes. Common causes include persistent cold and/or moderate to sever allergies.

After going to an extensive list of natural therapies, I came up with the top five:

Oil pulling therapy is a great Ayurvedic detoxing technique that helps to remove toxins from your body. Another cleansing agent is raw organic, unfiltered, raw, apple cider vinegar (ACV). The kind most people get is by "Braggs". Take one or two tablespoons of ACV and dilute in 12-16 oz of water and sip it slowly with a straw as you are doing other things around the house. Take this remedy when you first start getting a cold and it will actually prevent you from getting the sinus infection. I have also written a detailed article on ACV explaining the many benefits of raw, unfiltered, organic apple cider vinegar. Neti Pot is a great way to drain your mucus and toxins from your system. To make it even more effective, add 2-3 drops of grapefruit seed extract in the warm water solution. Grapefruit seed extract therapy is one of the most effective remedies for sinus infections as well as many other ailments. You can take it internally by adding 2-3 drops in a glass of water or juice, take it orally in a tablet form or use it as a nasal spray or with neti pot as mentioned above. A lot of people have found great success with this for both preventative measures and to help cure sinus infection. GSE is a natural antibiotic and disinfectant and has hundreds of uses. Just make sure you dilute it as is is extremely strong. Naturally assisting your body to heal with making sure you eat foods that help to heal rather than exacerbate your infection is very important. Don't consume dairy when you have a cold or sinus infection as it is very mucus forming. Drink lots of natural Vitamin C and eat fruits high in Vitamin C and antioxidants. I also like to take extra vitamins with the Emergen-C packs. They are great tasting and gives your body an instant dose of vitamins and minerals.

Please tell us about your experience with some of the natural therapies you have used or share any comments or questions you may have.
