INSTANT SINUS RELIEF

Updated on November 27, 2011

NOT A CURE - BUT REAL RELIEF!!



This country's number one chronic illness is sinusitis. Over 40 million Americans suffer from this "snotty" illness.

There are two types of sinusitis: chronic and acute. Chronic sinusitis is accompanied by fatigue, green or yellow mucus, bad breath, and headaches. Acute sinusitis is caused by bacteria or a virus and oft times follows a cold. It shares about the same symptoms as chronic but can be accompanied by a fever and most of the time, an antibiotic is prescribed.

The good news is you can alleviate and lessen the discomfort greatly by following a few simple steps.

1. Twice per day add 5 drops of eucalyptus oil to a large bowl of steaming, hot water. Lean your head over the bowl (don't burn your nose!). Drape a towel over your head and breathe deeply for 10 minutes. You will soon feel relief.

To treat acute sinusitis, use tea tree oil. Do the same as above but 3 to 4 times daily.

2. Flush with saltwater. This is also referred to as nasal irrigation. You can buy the "kit" to do this from your local pharmacy. Flushing your sinus cavities helps tremendously. Don't be a baby. I know. The idea sounds so painful. My first time, I proceeded with dread and much to my surprise, it did not hurt at all and the relief I felt was wonderful.

3. You should use an air purifier to freshen your air. This helps rid your home of some of the allergins that aggravate your sinuses.

I can't say these remedies will cure your sinusitis. But I can tell you from first hand experience, they will make you feel so much better. GIve them a try.
