5 Very Effective Home Remedies For A Sinus Infection


Have you ever felt like your whole face is
aching? It may be sinusitis! Do you know what sinusitis is? It’s when your sinuses, located close to your
nose and eyes, are inflamed. This inflammation causes facial pain, nasal
obstruction, coughing, ear pain, and aching in your jaw. It can be caused by allergies or colds. But, many times, sinusitis can also be chronic,
and in this case, the only way to alleviate the symptoms is through medicines. In cases where it’s necessary to use antibiotics,
your doctor will prescribe the most adequate for you. Check these alternatives to alleviate the
symptoms of sinusitis at home: Eucalyptus
We already learned that eucalyptus helps with expectoration and can be a good option to
clean the paranasal sinuses. Just mix some water, salt and a little bit
of eucalyptus in a pan, bring it to a boil and inhale the steam. Breathing will get much easier! Nasal Irrigation
Cleaning your sinuses with warm water and salt can help a lot! This mixture will open and hydrate your nasal
mucous membrane. Once the area is clean, it will also hurt
less. Chamomile Tea
It’s a good option to treat sinusitis in a natural way. As we have already seen on the channel, chamomile
has anti-inflammatory, anti-septic, analgesic and healing properties. It’s great to help with nasal congestion and
throat inflammation. Magnesium Chloride
A solution made of water and magnesium chloride can be very helpful. Dissolve 30 grams of magnesium chloride in
1,5 liters of water and apply using a nasal spray (you can use the empty bottle of other
nasal sprays you have around). Green Juice
A juice made only of spinach has anti-inflammatory and decongestant properties, which help eliminate
secretions. Drinking it regularly during sinusitis crises
can help lessen the symptoms. Did you know that sinusitis is more common
during the cold seasons and during climatic changes? Now that you know some homemade medicines
to treat your sinusitis, remember to rest, avoid allergens such dirt, pollen, animal
hair, cigarettes, and pollution, all of which can worsen your symptoms, ingest liquids to
help hydrate the mucous membranes and facilitate mucus elimination. Also avoid using products with strong smell
and perfumes. These simple steps can help you during the
treatment. If you tried any of these methods and it didn’t
work, talk to a doctor.

  1. You don’t mention using only good clean water AND never use the regular table salt! You can buy a salt that’s specific for use with a netti pot.

  2. Don't use the tap water for nose cleansing ! It has to be boiled water ,then cooled down to the normal temp.,or distilled water.
