Are you sick of shelling out on the over priced nasal medications every winter? Are you tired of that swollen, burnt sensation within your nasal cavity when the cold sets in? In this article we will be covering a few natural cures for sinus infections in adults – effective alternatives to the chemist shelf expense!
Apple Cider Vinegar – The Daddy!
Before we go any further it would be great if you take a look at this video below. We are HUGE fans of apple cider vinegar on this site and it’s uses as a remedy ( for numerous complaints! ):
Apple cider vinegar contains vitamins B1, B2, A and E, calcium, potassium and magnesium. All of these elements are great at killing off allergy symptoms and giving your sinuses relief ( clearing them out! ).
The mucus that causes you so many problems is easily thinned out by using apple cider vinegar correctly. I have heard of some people using it as a nasal rinse effectively but I have to be honest – I don’t quite fancy ( or recommend ) trying this!
It’s the antiseptic qualities of apple cider that make it one of the more effective natural cures for sinus infections. These antiseptic qualities are great at removing the infection from the body in double quick time!
What About Diet?
When you are suffering from a sinus infection it is a good idea to keep an eye on the foods you are eating. Your diet will play a big part in the amount of mucus you create!
Try not to stuff yourself – I know that food can offer some sort of comfort when you are ill but it’s not always to your body’s benefit.
I always find more natural soups are a good route to go. Flour products, eggs ( dairy products ) and fried foods in general are not to be touched. These types of food will create mucus and you will end up in more discomfort than you were in the first place!
What About Herbs?
I’ve had quite a few herbal options thrown at me as natural cures for sinus infections. So much so that it’s pretty hard to tell which ones are the most effective.
You know what it’s like when EVERYONE thinks they have the ultimate natural solution to a health complaint. I often hear about cayenne pepper, garlic and even horseradish being used as really simple herbal remedies to start with.
But if you are looking for a more direct herbal remedy then we would recommend taking a look at the video below. The process and recipe was apparently first published by eHow and this is the video version.
We have had good feedback on the effectiveness of the method…..
There are many natural cures for sinus infections in adults but not all of them are that effective. As I mentioned above the herbal method in the video has been recommended to us on more than one occasion so I would definitely give that one a try.
