Sinusitis Remedies – Natural Aids
Those sinus chambers behind the cheek bones, eye brows and jaws are the areas that give us the most trouble. These tiny organs produce mucus that helps in getting rid of the bacteria and other particles from the air that we take in as we breathe. Sinusitis is a common disease… but there are abundant natural aids that are easily available.
Everyone talks about saline solutions; and why not? Mixing salt, baking soda and warm water makes an effective natural aid that helps in minimizing and clearing the inflammation of the sinuses.
Eating foods rich in Vitamin C, vitamin E and zinc also helps because it boosts the immune system. A healthy immune system can prevent the development of sinusitis in the first place; and prevention is always better than a cure.
Quercetin is a substance many new researches are finding lessens the production of mucus. This substance can be found in the skin of red onion and red apples. Check with a Homeopathic store for this aid.
Drinking plenty of fluids helps in soothing inflamed sinuses. Green tea or hot apple juice are my favorites – and I do have sinus problems from time to time. Truthfully, I have managed to head it off at the pass nowadays.
If you are prone to sinusitis, try to get extra rest when you feel it begin to flare up. It’s an effective and popular sinusitis treatment.
Inhalers, decongestants and/or antihistamines should be used with the advice of a doctor as misuse of these treatments can worsen your condition.
Sinusitis has nagging symptoms that include coughing, sore throat, runny nose and sneezing. If you want to treat sinusitis without using any medications, you have to use natural remedies which do not have side effects.
