How to Stop Chronic Sinusitis

Updated on May 20, 2016

I Have Chronic Sinusitis

Sinusitis is a nasty thing to deal with, especially if you have had it for years! No one likes to deal with the constant pain and pressure that you are dealing with when your chronic sinusitis flairs up again. Tens of thousands of people every single year deal with it, and they keep doing the same thing over and over again, to get over it!

The definition for insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. Often this is what the people who have chronic sinusitis do every single year when it hits them. Some even multiple times a year.

If you are in this crowd of always doing the same thing and still dealing with the sinusitis, there are better ways to get over it. Most likely you are going to the doctor and asking for some prescription to help alleviate the symptoms, so that the pain itself is gone, but the problem still remains. So every year, you suffer multiple times with your sinusitis.

The Myths About Antibiotics

Many and most doctors are absolutely definitive that antibiotics are the key answer to helping you and your sinusitis. However, there are multiple reasons why antibiotics in most cases are not the best for your sinusitis. I would like to call these the myths of antibiotics. But it seems like every time someone gets sinusitis their doctors throw antibiotics at them. About 90% of adults seen in the U.S. by a general practice physician do end up getting an antibiotic for acute sinusitis, research has found.

1. They only take care of the symptoms not the problem

Anyone who knows anything about antibiotics should know they are only a symptomatic solution. The problem is that people keep going back and trying the same things to get rid of the problem. You either try a symptomatic solution or a problematic solution. In other words do you actually want to get rid of the problem or just suppress it! If you keep taking antibiotics you are only suppressing it until the next time it flairs back up. There is a deeper issue. It is the core problem, that until it is addressed you will have sinusitis the rest of your life.

Antibiotics are not effective for the problem and that is why people have sinusitis for years.

2. They are not completely effective on virus and bacteria

Science has validated that antibiotics only kill about 50% of viruses and bacteria. What does this mean to you? That you have a 50% chance of getting through part of the problem. But if your problem is the other 50% you are out of luck!

There is multiple forms of bacteria and virus. Trying blind to fight bacteria and virus with just random prescriptions is not a good thing! Your body may not need the chemical that you are throwing in there with antibiotics. If it does not, then it could cause other problems.

3. They do not kill fungus

If you have ever watched any type of sci-fi you know that there is usually some type of force shield around the opposing forces space ship or kingdom. It is not penetrable until you kill all of the things that are stopping you from it!

The bacteria and viruses are that force shield, and they are protecting the fungus. The only way to get to the fungus is by killing the bacteria and virus. The problem is that, as discussed in point 2, that antibiotics only kill 50% of all bacteria and virus. If we never kill those two, then we will never get to the root of sinusitis. The root of chronic sinusitis is fungus.

With that being the case, antibiotics do not even touch fungus. They do not kill it or even suppress it. If you are dealing with chronic sinusitis this is the reason why you have been doing the same thing over and over for years and never getting anywhere different.

To make things worse, antibiotics actually feed fungus. They make it stronger. Everyday you throw more antibiotics down your throat, is another day that you are making the fungus even stronger.

Until you get rid of the fungus, you will never get rid of the chronic sinusitis.

4. Antibiotics are good for you

This is one of the biggest myths in the medical world, yet 90% of doctors want to force it down your throat as soon as your sinusitis comes back on. However, antibiotics are not good for you and actually will damage your body. And if you have chronic sinusitis you are causing repeated damage to your body.

Simply put antibiotics are poison that you are putting in your body to kill something bad. However, not only could they kill something bad, but typically kill the good bacteria just as much as the bad bacteria!

What Can I Do to Stop Chronic Sinusitis

There are many things that one can do to stop fungus growth. Fungus is nasty and can grow anywhere in your body! The other thing is that it will spread like wild fire if you let it. Something that happens in your gut can spread to the rest of your body including your sinuses. There are several ways to get rid of the fungus.

1. Your diet

Diet is one of the most important things that you can do in order to get rid of fungus in your system. Although it is probably one of the most difficult things that you can do, it is also one of the best things that you can do.

People often want the quick fix. We live in a microwave and fast food society. Unfortunately, this thinking drives people to the doctor to get their antibiotics to mask the problem, but only take care of the symptoms. Since it took you so long in screwing your body up with all types of junk from food, medicines, and chemicals it will take some time for your body to correct itself.

Diet is one of the best ways to help you correct that. If you are having a fungus and yeast problem, whether in your sinuses or elsewhere I would highly recommend the candida diet.

2. Colloidal Silver

Colloidal Silver, also know as elemental silver, has been used for centuries to kill virus, bacteria, and fungus. In the late 80's however it got a bad rap due to misuse and creation of a product called Sea Silver. Unfortunately, instead of people understanding the value of it, they fell for the lack of education that our government had and claimed colloidal silver to be dreadfully bad for your health. You can read about the governments and medical doctors ignorance here.

You probably have heard the common phrase when talking about it. "If you take it, it will make you turn blue." This is simply just not true in most cases. I would advise that you seek out trusted companies and not just fall for anything. Just like anything else in high quantities colloidal silver can be bad for you. At the same time, so will antibiotics. Yet the government and medical doctors despite the many problems antibiotics can cause still will throw it at you like candy that is going out of style.

However, silver will actually kill not only the bacteria and virus, but it will also kill the fungus. Silver has an uncanny ability to penetrate the force shield of virus and bacteria, and kill the fungus. This is great especially if you can get direct contact on the location of the fungus issue.

Colloidal silver has to be one of the most effective direct contact solutions to fungus. Below is my recommended choice for sinus health.


There are many myths about how to take care of sinusitis. If you google it, you will see 100's of results saying how they have effective solutions. As always I would recommend that you do your research. In your research make sure you think for yourself and not just jump into the first thing that you read. I have seen really great results in 100's if not 1000's of people that I have recommended the above solution. You will see results if you do it correctly!
