Homemade Remedies for Sinus Infection

Updated on June 27, 2014

Best sinusitis treatment

It is really frustrating when a sinus infection affects our daily routine and doctors can only give relief and not a permanent cure. Sinusitis I believe takes time to be completely eliminated. Treatment for recurring sinusitis will be for a longer period of time if you don’t pay attention to its causes. It is an annoying and painful condition that lasts longer, weeks or even months than you can think it could be treated that fast.

The truth hurts but many people until now are still useless in taking precautionary measures to avoid getting sinus infection. It is considered that causes of sinusitis are either by yeast infection which is actually related to fungal infection or due to allergens.

However, there are natural ways to give attention to give relief to our sinus infection suffering. This method of treatment is considered more popular than conventional treatment because it involves no drug to remedy it.

If it is severe, the first thing you need is to mix at least 10 ml of lukewarm water with half teaspoon coarsely ground salt in a glass.

If you can use a dropper to discharge the solution from one of your raised nostrils, then go ahead and try it. Just make sure it is properly cleaned and free from unwanted dirt.

Squeeze the solution gently into your nostrils and inhale it slowly to make a steady flow in the sinus area.

It could make you feel uncomfortable because of the salt properties but continue until you feel it reached the part of the sinus then lower your forehead and spout by exhaling firmly to wash out the nostrils.

Repeat on the other side of your nostrils until you feel it has relieved your infection by washing out both nostrils with this solution.

This is one of the best methods I learned and was popularly known as nasal irrigation by ayurveda enthusiasts.

There are other ways to get rid of sinus infection but the best thing to prevent it is to avoid what causes it like the pollutants and allergens.

You need clean air and exercise. In other words, you need to live the sanitary life to completely get rid of your recurring sinusitis or sinus infection which is really frustrating. Living this way, you may find one day that your sinus problem is completely eliminated.

Drink at least 8 glasses of water daily. Remember, that a healthy body needs water to wash out impurities brought about by unsanitary condition and also for re-hydration. It is also much better if you can eat your liquid like the watermelon, cantaloupe and other fruits.

It is also good to include fruits especially those high in vitamin C like citrus fruits, and vegetables high in fiber added to your daily food trip for healthy living and long life.

      I agree with you water and nasal rinsing can have a huge impact on sinusitis. I have also found that avoiding diary helps a great deal too.
