How To Cure A Sinus Infection Naturally



I have struggled with a weak immune system since I was 19 years old.  I am now 32 and my biggest challenge every year for the last 5 or 6 years has been getting reoccurring sinus infections no matter what season it is.  Because I have gotten these so frequently in my life, I am becoming more and more resistant to the normal antibiotics that doctors prescribe to treat my sinus infections.  Besides the resistance you build up to the effectiveness, being on antibiotics further knocks out your immune system which can cause reoccurences immediately or open you up to other illnesses.  Sometimes sinus infections in their latest stages are so nasty that you simply need antibiotics so thank goodness they are there.  However it is a smart idea to take preventative measures and boost up your immune system while fighting a sinus infection whether you are taking antibiotics or not.  I once went 3 rounds of antibiotics for 2 months after not taking this seriously, which made each one harder than the last to get over and was very frustrating!  Therefore I have researched and tested all of the following remedies to naturally treat a sinus infection (best if used at very first signs of imbalance before infection is in its full stage).

Common Causes of Sinus Infections:
  • Cold & flu symptoms causing excessive mucus and inflammation of sinus cavity and tissues
  • Environmental & food allergies
  • Excessive dairy consumption
  • Tobacco & pollution irritation
  • Dental or fungal Infection
  • Systemic Candida (overgrowth of yeast in body)

Natural Remedies to Treat Sinus Infections:
When your sinus cavity is fighting an infection you have an excess of mucus that is trapped and causes further irritation and infection, therefore the name of the game is to dissolve the mucus and drain it.  Dairy, flour, chocolate, fried/processed foods and sugar produce large amounts of mucus; so avoid these foods.  Try one or all of these remedies at the same time, it will not hurt you at all since they are all natural and will not interact with each other adversely.  If you are taking any prescription drugs, you should always check with your doctor concerning interactions with other supplements as I am not a doctor and know nothing about pharmaceuticals.

I. Dissolve Mucus:
  1. Drink Apple Cider Vinegar-Apple cider vinegar thins out mucus in the body, allowing it to drain more effectively.   ACV is also a natural antibacterial and an overall acclaimed immunity booster.  The best way to take it is to dissolve 2 tsps. in water with a tsp. of honey or Stevia 3 times a day.
  2. Add cayenne pepper, garlic and onion to everything you eat.
  3. Eat Daikon radish since it is excellent at dissolving mucus in the body.  Daikon radish looks like a large white carrot and has a mild taste; it is sometimes served shredded as a garnish with sushi.
  4. Take Turmeric supplements (anti-inflammatory) to lessen nasal inflammation
  5. Steam & Inhale-Hold your head over a pot of freshly boiled water with a few drops of Olba’s oil or Oregano oil 2 times a day to thin congestion.  If you use Oregano oil please note that essential oils are safe to inhale but are not meant to be internally ingested unless they are a special kind that has been processed to be pharmaceutical grade.  I wanted to include this info as you can take Pharmaceutical grade Oregano Oil internally for your immune system if you would like just make sure it is the right kind.  For your convenience the link below this paragraph to the right, is the kind of Oregano Oil that can be both inhaled and internally ingested but please read specific product directions on Amazon page on how to ingest internally.


II. Drain Mucus:
  1. Eat a spoonful of crushed horseradish or dab of wasabi mixed with lemon juice and be ready to blow your nose!
  2. Use a Neti pot during and in between sinus infections-click to read my article "How To Use A Neti Pot"





III. Help Your Body Fight & Entirely Clear the Infection:
  1. Take Probiotics- The flora or healthy bacteria in your colon accounts for the majority of your immune system.  There is 100 trillion (or 3lbs. worth) of bacteria lining your intestinal tract, your overall health depends on the balance of the “good bacteria” vs. the “bad kind” which is a very delicate balance and chances are if you eat any processed foods or have been on antibiotics that kill off the good bacteria you need to be on a probiotic supplement.  These supplements need to be stored in the refrigerator as they are live cultured organisms.  Another excellent source of probiotics is found in kefir (a thin drinkable yogurt found at any health food store).
  2. Colloidal Silver- Colloidal silver is one of the best natural antibiotics ever discovered and used in human history. It is safer, cheaper and far more effective than pharmaceutical antibiotics, so much that most colloidal silver companies are being threatened and bullied by the pharmaceutical industry, FDA and even the FTC because they lose money over this.
  3. Take Vitamin C up to 1000mg 3x a day; it is impossible to overdose on vitamin C, your body will just use what it needs and then expel the rest through your urine (however excessive amounts of vitamin C every day of your life can cause serious side effects)

IV.Prevent Furthering of Infection or Reoccurence & Maintain Healthy Sinuses 
  1. Grapefruit Seed Extract is a natural antibiotic and can prevent microbes, parasites, bacteria and viruses.  Purchase in the form of a nasal spray for best results and use during, after and in between any allergy or sinus problems.
  2. Do Ear Candling about 3 times a year in between ear or sinus infections not during.  Click here to read my article containing Ear Candling Instructions "What is Ear Candling and How Do You Do It?"
  3. Continue probiotics and apple cider vinegar every day- they both have lasting and multiple health benefits to your entire body and immune system in particular.
  4. Run an air filter for your house with HEPA filter and always change filter when recommended.
  5. If you use a humidifier while you are sick or in general it is very important to keep it very clean!  If you live in a dry climate like us Rocky Mountain folk or are trying to keep pollens down by moisturizing the air, then you probably employ a humidifier in the winter or when you aren’t feeling well, so you need to take note of the following precautions.  Buy the newer humidifiers that have Microban technology that prevents mildew and molds, as this can make you sicker!  Even with these, clean them often with vinegar and baking soda, use distilled water only and always change your filters when you see mineral build up or discoloration.

LOVE this article! very informative.. I can say also from my own personal experience that Oregano Oil is one of the BEST remedies for upper respiratory issues and infections of all kinds. Inhale the steam to thin the mucous, or (as our massage therapists says, with the supervision of your doctor) take oregano oil internally; pre-made capsules are sold everywhere, and they work really well for kickstarting the immune system and for its general antiviral/antibacterial properties.

Thank you for your comment and support Michael! We have to break the chain of ridiculous western medicinal practices of throwing antibiotics at everything when there has been better cures for these things since ancient times! Amen brother. Keep it real, thanks again.

Great post! I like the tips mentioned above. Sinusitis is a very common disease and two out of five are suffering from this health issue. Though, it is not a severe disease as it can be cured easily. Sinus infection is often caused due to dirt and pollution. Many people who suffer from allergies, colds and sinus headaches always search for preventive measures. There are so many natural cures and home remedied, which can be used to cure Sinus.

I like the tips said above. Sinusitis is an exceptionally regular ailment and two out of five are experiencing this well-being issue. However, it is not a serious sickness as it can be cured effortlessly. Sinus disease is regularly created because of soil and contamination. Numerous individuals who experience the ill effects of hypersensitivities, colds and sinus cerebral pains dependably hunt down preventive measures. There are such a variety of normal cures and home cured, which can be utilized to cure Sinus. Thanks!
