Best Natural Treatments for Sinus Infection
Homeopathic Medicines and Time-Honored Home Remedies that Help Cure Sinusitis and Allergic Rhinitis
Triggered by a cold or allergies, sinus infections cause nasal congestion, headaches, and difficulty sleeping. Untreated or badly treated sinusitis can result in serious infections and chronic breathing problems. Here is how to shield yourself from seasonal and environmental attacks on your respiratory system, teach your body to stay strong, and build a natural defense against viruses, bacteria, and allergens.
Sinus Infection or Hay Fever?
Sinusitis is caused by a viral infection - such as the common cold - or a bacterial infection and causes your sinuses to become inflamed and blocked. The mucous membranes stop to drain properly making it difficult to breathe. Headache, fatigue, fever, and ear pain may follow. Hay Fever or Allergic Rhinitis - often referred to as allergies - is triggered by pollen, dust, or mold, harmless substances that the immune system mistakes as a threat. A biochemical reaction follows that produces histamine in the bloodstream causing the familiar symptoms of stuffy or runny nose, sneezing, red eyes and skin. Allergic reactions may lead to sinusitis or chronic breathing problems.
Homeopathic Remedies for Sinus Problems
Our remedies combine homeopathy’s best known sinusitis and allergy remedies such as Hepar sulph and Kali bich, Allium cepa and Apis mel. By stimulating your body’s own healing mechanisms, they work quickly and naturally and help you avoid antibiotics, decongestants, and antihistamine medications. Also try Thymuline, an innovative homeopathic remedy supporting the Thymus, a main organ of the immune system fighting infections and diseases.
Home Remedies and Body Therapies That Shore Up your Body’s Defenses
Vitamin C, plenty of purified water, garlic, and elderberries are some of the best liked and longest proven home remedies for sinus and respiratory conditions. Many people swear by organic apple cider vinegar (two teaspoons in a glass of water with honey to taste). A nasal wash with a neti pot, body therapies like reiki and jin shin jyutsu to release pressure and encourage drainage, relaxation, and a stronger immune system are only a few of my personal favorites.
