Natural Sinus Infection Home Remedy
Sinus Infection Overview
Getting rid of my sinus infection was at the top of my list ever since I remember. Sinus infection is a problem that makes you life hell, only those who suffer know how tough it is to live with it. It is an irritating problem that makes you passive, destroys your productivity and often results in lost days at school or work. Sinus Infection has been a recurring theme in my life, and I have suffered silently for many long years.
Its only recently that I discovered a bunch of strategies after a great deal of research and personal experimentation that have helped me master sinus. This article lists a few strategies to help you gain control over sinus, and is my of way showing gratitude for all the advice and info I received from different people.
Understanding the enemy - Sinus
For those unaware, sinuses are spaces in the bones of your face. These are like passages that get clogged up and start hurting. Generally when you have a stuffy nose it drains through the nose, but if you have got hay fever or a nasal congestion for a longer period the drainage stops and you get "sinus infection".
Its similar to leaving your dish washing water in the sink for some time , only to find that it has become stale and smelly. It doesn't matter how much germicide or cleaning agent you put in, unless you pull the sink plug and drain the water it doesn't go away. This is what happens to those with sinus problems over a period of time.
Generally we have two types of sinus problems.
- One is acute which lasts for a few days, which results from a common cold or ear infection. This is easily treated with anitbiotics or simple home remedies.
- The other is called "chronic sinusitis", this makes people passive, irritated and they are sick throught the year, also it required heavy doses of antibiotics and many a times there seems to be no cure at all. Sometimes doctors even suggest a surgery, but this is quite rare.

A few advanced stategies to defeat sinus naturally..
- Grind 10-15 Basil leaves with 4 cloves and 1 teaspoon dried ginger into a paste and apply to forehead for sinus cure.
- For a painful sinus headache, try a hot footbath along with a cold compress on the forehead
- Steam inhalation by bending over boiling water with a towel around your head to 'catch' the steam also helps with immediate relief.
- A good multi-vitamin/mineral supplement is also a good idea with additional vitamin C and vitamin A.
- Also try finding what causes it in the first place, go on fasting or avoiding certain eatables or find out if it is some allergic element around you.
- Try Jalaneti or Neti pot method as it is popularly know. This is the ancient indian yogic method of cleaning the nostrils and sinus pockets is a very promising long term cure, check out - How to use a neti pot.
I've found that many times Drs will prescribe steroids and antihistamine drugs like visteril etc. This is thought of as a cure all, when they don't know how to cure the underlaying problem. Be careful with steroid/drug use, some side effects are - hair loss, weigt gain, fluid retention, high BP etc.

Metaphysical or New Age Startegy
There is always a reason behind everything..
This is something you could try if nothing else seems to work. Mind-Body Link has been studied and documented widely in the 20th century. Even in the ancient eastern texts it is stated that problems arise mostly because of wrong thoughts and feelings (psychic impressions) that are embedded in the mind. This may often happen unknowingly for eg. a child who was often scolded harshly might develop stammering or any other physical reaction or disease in the latter year. The best way to tackle this is through affirmation done in the proper way.
It is believed that Irritation to someone, usually someone close to you, is the main reason behind sinus manifesting in your life. Introspect and see if this is true.
Affirmation for Sinus Problems
"I choose to declare peace and harmony with all the individuals around me. I surround my self with love and goodwill."
Bring your whole body to a state of relaxation and repeat this for at least 15 mins daily in a slow style with feeling and love for at least a month to see results.
