Are You Miserable?


Are you being plagued by this nasty little condition called sinus infections, or allergic rhinitis? On the most glorious time of the year when the frigid cold ends and the newly budding trees and flowers take place can be a miserable plague of sneezing, coughing, headaches, body aches, runny nose, and watery, burning itching eyes.

What causes the misery is inflammation. Your nose normally is filled with air for breathing and when the inflammation hits it stops up the nasal passages causing labored breathing. If you are taking medications that suppress the immune system then look out it will be after you. Immune deficiencies are also culprits.

First get rid of the dairy products during this time to reduce the mucus. Drink plenty of water. Soups and vegetables doused with cayenne pepper, garlic and horse radish will help.

Suck warm salt water up each nostril.

Grapefruit seed extract has been known to inhibit microbes, parasites, bacteria, viruses and 30 types of fungi including Candida yeast.

Apple cider vinegar helps to thin congested mucus, so it can be easily eliminated. Try at the first sign of a problem 1-2 teaspoons of raw, unfiltered apple cider vinegar in 6 ounces of water, a teaspoon of raw honey or Stevia (Stevia is a natural sweetener without the side effects of NutraSweet or Aspartame.) Be sure and drink this solution several times a day. It will help thin the mucus.

Another remedy I found effective is oil of Oregano. This is not the spice you use in recipes. It is at the health food store in a dropper bottle. It is very strong and you drop 1 drop under your tongue and wait 2 – 3 minutes then drink 8 ounces of water. It will also wash down your esophagus and help all the way down. “A little dab will do ya “as the old saying goes.

Load up with Pro-biotics and raw is the best. Mix it in water or juice.

So along with plenty of rest and the above advice you should be feeling better quickly.
