Sinusitis Symptoms –  Some Self-Help


I have known people who grow herbs from seeds in a window box garden, acquiring the seeds from gardening shops, or even online… all to combat the sinusitis symptoms because they never know when the next sinus attack will come. The benefit with natural herbs is you don’t experience the adverse side effects of chemically based over the counter drugs which can cause more harm than good. Herbs to grow are oregano, cayenne or ginger.


Another natural cure and home remedy for sinus infections is to use Apple Cider Vinegar, which contains potassium. This helps decrease mucus production and has shown to be beneficial as a home remedy of sinusitis symptoms like runny nose and sore throat.


It’s hard enough when we come down with sinusitis symptoms, but when our kids can’t breathe and complain “my head hurts, mommy”…  all the symptoms so familiar to your own life with sinusitis, you are now seeing in these small children’s discomfort; the nasal congestion, the facial pain, and the serious coughing especially during nighttime hours.

 All of the sinusitis treatments available can be categorized into 3 main types, namely medicine, surgery and self help. Along with a good, healthy diet with lots of fresh vegetables to keep the immune system tip-top, I recommend the herbal home remedies unless the sinusitis symptoms persist. Then we have to admit defeat and call a physician.
