Sinusitis Herbal – Alternative Remedies


Many of us have suffered sinusitis with nasal congestion, severe pain across the nose and cheeks and behind the eyes as well as headaches. These symptoms and the infection itself can be treated effectively at home with herbal remedies. Here are a few we have tried and had remarkable results:


 Many have had awesome results by making a mock inhaler by using any of the following herbs in boiling hot water and breathing in the steam. Garlic is good for ANY cold because it is a natural antibiotic that does wonders for your immune system. Cayenne pepper stimulates blood flow and is good for clearing nasal passages. Thyme, eucalyptus, mint, Echinacea or coltsfoot is also good for clearing sinusitis. Not only does the steam decongest your nasal and breathing passages, but the moisture loosens phlegm and mucus and soothes a dry, irritated throat or nose.


Herbs can be a soothing treatment for troubled sinuses.

Herbal remedies have been used for centuries with great success. Some people still believe that natural herbal remedies are better than prescription medications for treating sinusitis… I am one of those people.
