Natural Sinus Cure
Yesterday I was feeling like a cold was coming on but think it was just my sinuses acting up. Not knowing though, I immediately took 2 Vitamin C’s when I felt it and then again when I went to bed as well as Melaeluca’s Activate Immune Complex (I swear by this). Results…..I woke up feeling fine today. But if you’re having sinus problems, here’s are some things you can do for a natural Sinus Cure.
Oh and another thing I did this morning, to be on the safe side, for my sinuses was a sinus rinse. There are many brands and they go by a few names. Sinus rinse, nasal wash, sinus cleanse, Netipot and others. I happen to like the squeeze bottle. These are all good to get any bacteria out of you sinus cavity as well as other benefits.
You can make your own solution and save a lot of money. They do sell the salt prepackaged but this can run up the cost, especially if you like it and use it daily. Just go to the grocery store and purchase non-iodine salt. Mix 1/2 tsp salt to 8 oz. distilled water or if using tap water, boil to sterilize it, let it cool and you’re all set.
Here’s a video I found showing you how to use a netipot.
If you’re not sure if it’s your sinuses giving you problems here are some symptoms you might want to watch for which include nasal congestion, runny nose, teary eyes, a headache or neck ache.
Another natural sinus cure is to drink the following to help clear you up. 1 cup tomato juice, one tsp finely minced fresh garlic, 1/4 to 1/2 cayenne pepper (depending on how spicy you like it) and one tsp lemon juice and you can add horseradish to taste if you like. Warm this up but not where it’s too hot to drink. Enjoy the taste and the benefits.
Try acupressure but applying firm pressure with your fingertips on either side of your nose, just outside the nostrils. Rotate your fingertips in a circular motion for 30–45 seconds, repeat as needed.
And lastly, hum. Yes, humming helps. This is something you should do daily to keep your sinuses healthy and clear. It helps to increase circulation in your sinus cavities and allows a gas exchange between your nasal passages and sinuses. Gas exchange supports this cellular respiration by constantly supplying oxygen and removing carbon dioxide.
