Herbal Home Remedies for Sinus Infection

By implementing this all-natural healing approach you can drastically reduce sinus infections and ear aches in yourself and improve your overall health. Since I have studied natural remedies, my perception of natural health remedies has changed a lot. You see, modern medicine didn't always cure me and the people around me. A healthy body has a strong immune system. It is able to fight off bacterial invasions effectively. One of the best reason, however, may be the fact that herbs and herbal products, continue to provide real health benefits while maintaining a remarkable safety profile. Readily available natural substances were the first medicines used by humans.


Usually, your sinus infection starts with a cold due to factors such as weather changes; or an allergy episode that causes swelling of the mucous membranes and increased production of watery mucus. The classic sinusitis symptoms are nasal congestion, thick yellow nasal discharge (or thin and clear discharge in mild cases), frontal headache, and possibly fever with a sore throat. Additionally, using goldenseal and Oregon grape root, coptis gives you anti-inflammatory actions to the mucus membrane , and specifically to the sinus cavity . Berberine has a broad antimicrobial spectrum and is affective in many types of infections. Embarassed


For a more concentrated steam "bath" doctors sometimes recommend putting a pot of water on to boil. Remove it from the heat and lean over it, draping a towel around your head to trap the steam, and breathe deeply for a few minutes. Then use a Neti pot to rinse out your sinus cavities by tilting your head back and to the side. You can also use a dropper. Find more home remedies for sinus infection Isn't it wonderful that we can now access information about anything, including Nasal Congestion form the Internet without the hassle of going through books and magazines for matter!

Gentleman Named Jason H

Recounted to me recently how he managed to treat a sinus infection without the use of antibiotics. Jason has a long history of 15 years of chronic sinus problems, and he has undergone 4 sinus surgeries. He is happy about his last operation to remove polyps and fix a deviated septum, and he has also begun using pulsating nasal irrigation with the Grossan Hydro Pulse' device. Nonetheless, he recently managed to come down with another sinus infection. Concerned that he has taken too many antibiotics in his life, he decided to attack the problem using the nasal irrigator. At this point a disclaimer is in order. Neither Jason nor the author of this article are doctors or medical professionals, we are both just sinus sufferers. As such neither of us is qualified to offer medical advice. I would personally urge anyone with a sinus infection, particularly those with chronic problems, to see an ENT specialist.

Any case Jason used his nasal irrigation system 6 times on the day he realized he had an infection, which is a lot, but the next day he felt a lot better. He continued to use the system once or twice a day thereafter, as he normally would, and after three or four days he felt like he was completely over the problem. It was the first time he had ever dealt with a sinus infection without resorting to the use of antibiotics. life is short. Use it to its maximum by utilizing whatever knowledge it offers for knowledge is important for all walks of life. Even the crooks have to be intelligent! Surprised.



  • Clearly the body will eventually heal itself, but the healing process can be much faster using proper medications, such as antibiotics in this case.
  • However, I too began to wonder if I was taking too many antibiotics after a number of years.
  • At present I'm pleased to say that my nasal irrigator keeps the amount of antibiotics I use down to a low number.



Once again, I would recommend that most people seek advice from their doctor when they begin to fall ill. People like Jason and I, who have long histories battling sinus infection, can tell when we have one, but that is not the case for most people. There is no doubt, however, that pulsating nasal irrigation with a saline solution is a huge help, and I'm convinced it would help lower the number of colds caught by most people, even those who do not have chronic sinus problems. And it can be used even for treatment of a sinus infection, as Jason did, although it might be best to try this under a doctor's supervision. Whenever one reads any reading matter, it is vital that the person enjoys reading it. One should grasp the meaning of the matter, only then can it be considered that the reading is complete. Very Happy.



  • Personally know it is possible for the body to heal itself with sinus infections although the process can be long and painful.
  • When I was much younger I used to say 'when I get a cold it is really a lulu', and I would typically be sick for 2 to 3 weeks.
  • It wasn't unusual for me to be bedridden for 2-4 days with severe headaches and nasal discharge and tearing in the eyes during that period as well.
  • Of course colds don't last that long, and I now know that what I was experiencing was a sinus infection.
  • Thinking of life without Nasal Irrigation seem to be impossible to imagine.
  • This is because Nasal Irrigation can be applied in all situations of life. Surprised



The main benefit of pulsating nasal irrigation is for prevention, however, rather than treatment of sinus infections that have already taken hold, as Jason used it. I'm personally coming to the conclusion that this procedure would benefit almost everybody. I used to be a person who would become sick fairly regularly, but now I almost never become ill. I've gone over 1 ' years without a cold or sinus infection, and it only happened on that occasion because I was exhausted before a long overseas flight. At that point I simply could not hold the infection off. I sometimes hear about people who don't have chronic sinusitis and who come down with colds, and this tends to surprise me. I used to be the one who got sick all the time, but now that is almost never the case. If I do feel a cold coming on I'll use my nasal irrigator two or even three times a day for 1-2 days (I normally use it twice a day in any case). If I feel a possible infection coming on I'll also take 5 mg of prednisone, and I normally also use a steroid spray, flonase, although there are a number of such products on the market. For about five years now this regimen has worked well for me. One needs to be careful with prednisone, however, as it can cause harmful side-effects. I use it sparingly, and my doctor says it is not an issue.

Sinus surgeries is certainly an option for chronic sinusitis and sinus infections. But a lot of people who've had sinus surgery, and still have the symptoms that they had before the surgery will tell you that they wish they had explored the greatest herbal solutions for sinusitis. Laughing



  • After all, any good doctor will tell you that there are no guarantees with any treatment-including surgery.
  • The one thing we can be sure of, are the risks associated with surgery.



You want to learn more I recommend: www.TheSinusInfectionCure.com I would really love to hear any questions or comments that you may have. Melody Fields is a healthy lifestyle fanatic, stay at home mom and consumer advocate. She enjoys writing articles in her spare time. Quality is better than quantity. It is of no use writing numerous pages of nonsense for the reader. Instead, it is better to write a short, and informative article on specific subjects like Sinus Infection. People tend to enjoy it more.

Wouldn't it be better to try to find the underlying cause of your sinus misery and do something about that? I mean, if it's allergies, or mold, or something in your diet, or some other environmental factor that's causing your sinus misery-wouldn't it be better to try to figure out what it is and do something about that before you have the surgery?

So Let Me Ask You

What makes you think that letting someone stick a balloon up your nose or cauterize (burn) the lining of your sinuses with a laserbeam is going to help you? After all, don't you have a chronic infection or inflammation? Won't the infection and inflammation still be there after the surgery? We have used clear and concise words in this article on Sinus Surgery to avoid any misunderstandings and confusions that can be caused due to difficult words.

How about an Air Purifier for Your Bedroom?

It's more expensive than the Neti pot for sure, but just breathing clean, filtered air overnight can make a tremendous difference in the way you feel the next day. It is always better to use simple English when writing descriptive articles, like this one on Sinus Infections. It is the layman who may read such articles, and if he can't understand it, what is the point of writing it?

How about Some Simple Diet Changes?

Have you noticed that your sinuses flare up, or that you get a sinus infection, after you eat certain foods? I did. For me it was ice cream. Whenever I would eat a bowl of ice cream my sinuses would start to swell and become congested. And just like clockwork, by the next day I would be miserable. And the strange part is, it can't be a dairy allergy because I can drink milk without a problem. This article on Sinus Passages was written with the intention of making it very memorable to its reader. Only then is an article considered to have reached it's objective.



  • Never would've known that if I hadn't started keeping a diary in taking an interest in what I ate and how it affected my sinus problem.
  • These are just a few simple things you can try.
  • There are many others.
  • The important thing is not to let anyone convince you to do something that you're not ready to do.
  • I know it's hard to be logical about this when you're suffering.
  • But all I'm recommending, is that you try the simple, natural and noninvasive treatments first.
  • Doesn't that make sense?
  • And now that sinus surgery has been around for a while, you can even find lots of people who've had the surgery to or even three times.
  • That's because the symptoms just keep coming back.
  • Keeping to the point is very important when writing.
  • So we have to stuck to Sinus Infections, and have not wandered much from it to enhance understanding.



And antibiotics are obviously not the answer for everyone. The more we learn about antibiotics, the better we understand that treating your chronic infection or condition with antibiotics is like putting a Band-Aid on a bullet wound. We have taken the privilege of proclaiming this article to be a very informative and interesting article on Neti Pot. We now give you the liberty to proclaim it too.

Let's Look At It Like this..

If antibiotics are designed to kill the underlying cause of the infection. Then how come your sinusitis or sinus infection keeps coming back? What I'm trying to say is that since you're considering having surgery you obviously have a chronic or ongoing condition. We have used a mixture of seriousness and jokes in this composition on Sinus Problem. This is to liven the mood when reading about Sinus Problem.

Very Few People Really Need Sinus Surgery

If you want to be sure that surgery is a good choice for you, the best way to do that is to explore all of the non-invasive options available to you. To err is human, to forgive is divine. So we would indeed deem you to be divine if you forgive us for any misunderstandings that may arise in this article on Sinuses.



  • All I'm saying is: Before you commit yourself to going under the knife, shouldn't you at least try some simple, natural alternatives.
  • Like these: How about a simple sinus rinse?
  • You can get yourself a neti pot off of eBay for less than 20 bucks and use it daily to rinse the irritants from your sinus passages.
  • This simple act alone has helped more people get off the antibiotic merry-go-round than anything else I know.
  • It is not necessary that only the learned can write about Sinus Surgery.
  • As long as one ahs a flair for writing, and an interest for gaining information on Sinus Surgery, anyone can write about it.



You're Coughing and Sneezing and Tired and Achy

You think that you might be getting a cold. Later, when the medicines you've been taking to relieve the symptoms of the common cold are not working and you've now got a terrible headache, you finally drag yourself to the doctor. After listening to your history of symptoms, examining your face and forehead, and perhaps doing a sinus X-ray, the doctor says you have sinusitis.



  • Bad breath.
  • Think about it this way-your senses of smell and taste are really messed up right now-and you can still smell and taste your bad breath.
  • What does everybody else think about your breath right now?
  • Revision is very important when writing or speaking about a topic.
  • We had a lot of drafting to do to come to this final product on Nose Sinus.



The main symptoms of sinusitis are pain and pressure in the face. The location of pain and tenderness depends on which sinus is inflamed. When pain is over the cheek and upper teeth may be caused by the maxillary sinus' inflammation. Pain in the forehead above the eyebrow may be triggered by inflammation of the frontal sinus. Once pain is behind the eyes, on top of the head, or in both temples may be brought about by sphenoid sinus' inflammation. The inflammation of the ethmoid sinus can be identified by the pain around or behind the eyes. After reading what was written here, don't you get the impression that you had actually heard about these points sometime back. Think back and think deeply about Sphenoid Sinus.

The sinuses are four pairs of hollow spaces in the bones of the face lined with mucous membranes and connected to the nose. The sinuses allow air to flow freely within the spaces in and out of the nose. Small hairs in the sinuses (cilia) regularly help move mucous out through the nose. When the small openings from the nose to the sinus cavities (sinus ostia) are blocked, or when too much mucous is produced, inflammation can occur within sinus cavities and cause acute sinusitis.

Fatigue-Even When You Should Feel Rested

This is the sneakiest one of all. This is the one that creeps up on you slowly and unnoticed. If you are living with the symptoms on this list you are certainly not reaching your true potential at work, family life or at rest. We tried to create as much matter for your understanding when writing on Frontal Sinus. We do hope that the matter provided here is sufficient to you. Smile


Home Remedies for Sinus Infections





Common sinus pressure symptoms worse when coughing, straining, or lying on the back and better when the head is upright. Commonly the symptoms of sinus infection are headache, facial tenderness or pain, and fever. However, as few as 25% of patients may have fever associated with acute sinus infection. Other common symptoms include cloudy, discolored nasal drainage, a feeling of nasal stuffiness, a sore throat, and a cough.

Sinus infection symptoms are caused by inflammation and blockage of the sinus cavities. Sinuses are hollow pockets of air located on either side of the nose, behind and in-between the eyes, and in the forehead. The sinuses produce mucus that cleans and moistens the membranes of the nose and throat. Each sinus has an opening into the nose that allows for free exchange of mucus and air. Sinus infection symptoms result when these openings get plugged. It is of no use thinking that you know everything, when in reality, you don't know anything! It is only because we knew so much about Acute Sinus that we got down to writing about it!



  • Are you among the 1 in 5 Americans who suffer from sinusitis, allergic rhinitis, nasal congestion, postnasal drip, acid reflux or asthma?
  • Did you know that by effectively treating the nose, you might be able to treat or prevent other problems as well?
  • Did you know that many of the strategies for treating the nose and sinuses also apply to other conditions, such as even acid reflux and asthma?
  • Yes, they do!
  • And it is so important to treat the nose effectively because these are all interconnected.



Principle 3 is relax, be it a good night of sleep or reducing stress in everyday life. It is important to get adequate sleep per night, which is the body's natural way of healing. People who are not getting enough sleep are more apt to come down with sinus infections. I recall reading Walt Ballenberger, founder of ***** informing his readers that after 5 years, he came down with a sinus infection. The reason? He had 3 hours of sleep in a 48 hour period. However, sufferers of empty nose syndrome might need to undergo a sleep study and might even need a continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) machine because their breathing difficulties make breathing (and consequently sleeping) that much more difficult. Some of the more severely affected empty nose patients report only being able to breathe for a few hours at a time each night. Finally, reducing stress is also important for sinus sufferers as that alone can reduce the risk of sinus infections. The title of this composition could be rightly be Nasal Sinus. This is because what is mentioned here is mostly about Nasal Sinus.

Now, one recommendation that all sinus sufferers would do well to heed: a key concept to remember in treating your nose is that you are in charge of taking control of your health. No one else will do that for you. In fact, I learned that even though my nasal problems seem rather severe, as I suffer from empty nose syndrome, I actually came down with fewer sinus infections than others around me because I learned more about my nose and followed treatment strategies that worked well for me. Many of the treatment principles are universal. Very Happy.



  • The Hydro Pulse pulsates at a rate to stimulate your nasal cilia to their best rhythm, restoring the functioning of the cilia.
  • The Hydro Pulse allows you to irrigate both your nose and throat.
  • It is important to irrigate both, particularly since what is in the nose travels down to the throat.
  • Irrigating the throat can bring circulation to the throat, thereby thinning mucus and reducing postnasal drip.
  • We hope you develop a better understanding of Nasal Irrigation on completion of this article on Nasal Irrigation.
  • Only if the article is understood is it's benefit reached.



You are among the 1 in 5 Americans who suffer from sinusitis, allergic rhinitis, nasal congestion, postnasal drip, acid reflux, asthma, and/or if you have empty nose syndrome, then I encourage you to consider using the treatment strategies discussed in this article, which might just be a starting point for you to take control of your nasal health. Remember, it is you, no one else, who will take control of your health. Once you are through reading what is written here on Sinusitis, have you considered recollecting what has been written and writing them down? This way, you are bound to have a better understanding on Sinusitis. Shocked

Nasal irrigation has become popularized in 2007 by Oprah Winfrey, as she had Dr. Mehmet Oz introduce the neti pot to viewers. Dr. Oz suggests water used for irrigation should be warm and it must include salt; without salt in the mixture that mimics the natural concentration of salt in the body, the water would irritate delicate nasal membranes. He also points out how many ear, nose and throat (ENT) specialists recognize the value in doing irrigation, which can be more effective than drugs for treating nasal congestion, stuffiness, or allergies, for example, as it involves directly cleaning out the nose and sinuses. Have you noticed the proliferation of irrigation products in your local drugstore compared to even just 10 years ago? The number of products has increased significantly, because there is much value in cleaning out your nose with salt water. I wish nasal irrigation would be tantamount to and as well understood as washing dirty hands!

Before reading further, please note I am a school psychologist and nasal sufferer with the above conditions as well as empty nose syndrome, but not a healthcare professional. While these treatments have generally been effective for me, everyone responds differently to them so what helped me might not benefit someone else. I strongly recommend you discuss treatment ideas in this article with your doctor before attempting them. The best course of action with any health-related problem is consultation with a medical professional, and I take no responsibility for decisions made by people who read this article. Very Happy.

Principle 3:

Relax. A key strategy for Principle 1, keep the nose moist while keeping mucus moving, is nasal irrigation. This is a natural remedy I believe every sinus sufferer must understand and should do. In brief, it consists of rinsing out your nose and sinuses with salt and water. I feel so strongly about nasal irrigation that I believe it must be tried first before considering nose or sinus surgery (unless your situation demands it). Saying that all that is written here is all there is on Neti Pot would be an understatement. Very much more has to be learnt and arizona state polytechnic campus.

Principle 2 is Maintain Good Blood Supply to the Nose

Exercise is a strategy that most people are familiar with and can help improve nasal functioning. Exercise increases blood flow throughout the body, while increasing serotonin reuptake inhibitors that will physically decrease the likelihood someone will develop depression. When I run outside (or walk or do any physical activity), I notice that I can breathe better through my nose. Empty nose sufferers tend to particularly benefit from good blood supply to their nose, sometimes finding inversion techniques to be helpful. An inversion technique consists of having the head lower than the rest of the body to increase blood supply to the head and remaining nose tissue (the turbinates). You can purchase an inversion table to do this technique. Shocked

Third Key Strategy of Principle 1 is Proper Diet

This strategy might seem self-explanatory, but it cannot be emphasized enough. A number of tips to consider in terms of diet including drinking 8, 8-ounce glasses of water per day; drinking hot tea with lemon and honey, particularly during a time of a cold or sinus infection; eating chicken soup; and eating foods that might be beneficial for sinus health such as vegetables, fresh fruits, spicy foods, wheat products, and foods high in protein. Conversely, foods to avoid include caffeinated products and alcohol, which increase nasal dryness, and tobacco smoke, which worsens the lungs and consequently leads to more breathing difficulties. As you progress deeper and deeper into this composition on Neti Pot, you are sure to unearth more information on Neti Pot. The information becomes more interesting as the deeper you venture into the composition.

Three guiding principles that can bolster your nasal health are: Principle 1: Keep the nose moist while keeping mucus moving. Principle 2: Maintain good blood supply to the nose. This is a systematic presentation on the uses and history of Sinus Irrigation System. Use it to understand more about Sinus Irrigation System and it's functioning. Idea

The doctor who pioneered the concept of nasal irrigation in the United States is Dr. Murray Grossan, of Los Angeles, an innovative ENT specialist who created the Grossan Hydro Pulse Nasal-Sinus Irrigation System, which has reportedly sold 400,000 to date. Interestingly, based on feedback, Dr. Grossan estimates 10%, or 40,000, of these purchasers are from empty nose sufferers. You can visit his website at ***** to learn more about the Hydro Pulse. Dr. Grossan needed to find an effective remedy for treating his patients, many of whom did not have much money, without using drugs. I use the Hydro Pulse twice a day, in the morning and evening. It is important to point out the Hydro Pulse has distinct advantages over other irrigation products, such as a neti pot or a bulb syringe (the latter of which can house bacteria): Delta state university applications on Nasal Congestion everywhere. However, it is up to us to decide the way used for these applications to get the best results from them.
