You can kill sinus infection in just 5 minutes, and you just need 4 simple ingredients (which you probably already have in your kitchen cabinet!). Sounds amazing, right? Well, yes it is and it’s very simple! You just have to take a look at the article below and try this 4-ingredient home remedy.
But, before we show you how to make it, I would like to ask you a simple question – do you know what’s sinus infection? Sinus infection is an inflammation of the lining of the sinuses that in many cases lead to persistent headaches, fevers and even facial pains. But, you shouldn’t be worried (because as we said), there are many natural remedies that are effective at cleaning the sinuses and killing the bacteria and viruses responsible for these health problems. Acute sinusitis – it’s a sinus infection that can last up to four weeks. While a chronic sinusitis can last 12 weeks or longer if left untreated.According to the experts, the infections of the sinuses (which are the hollow air spaces within the bones in the cheek bones, forehead and between the eyes) are usually caused by either viruses or bacteria. They cause thick mucus blockage and painful or extreme discomfort in these cavities.
And, unfortunately, the prescribed antibiotics are not the best remedy for sinusitis as they can cause a lot of dangerous side effects. Your body should be given the right healing food to enable it to cure itself. And, let me say this one more thing – antibiotics are not helpful if your sinusitis is caused by a virus.
About the Ingredients:
Apple Cider Vinegar
We can easily say that ACV is one of the healthiest ingredients on the planet. Yes, this amazing ingredienthas many practical and beneficial uses. It is probably one of the top natural remedies for many ailments. This amazing and super healthy ingredient contains vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and malic acids that are beneficial for killing bacteria. It works by binding to pathogens and help the body get rid of them more effectively. It is also effective for fighting viral, fungal and Candida infections.
This is very important for you to remember – you should always look for raw, unfiltered, unpasteurized, organic apple cider vinegar to get the medicinal benefits. And, now you probably ask yourself – how to tell the genuine and “real” apple cider vinegar? Here’s what you need to know – first of all, you should know that the liquid should be “murky”, not clear, and you can see sediment pieces at the bottom of the bottle—that is the “mother”.
According to the experts, when you consume ACV orally, it breaks up mucus and clear airways, while its antibacterial properties kill the infection-causing bacteria. And, when the mucus and the nasal congestion are broken down, apple cider vinegar delivers its rich nutrients to the body to support and strengthen the immune system, preventing the infection from getting worse. It doesn’t matter that ACV is acidic, it has all the necessary electrolytes to balance the body’s pH levels and effectively reduces body acidity. Harmful microbes (bacteria or viruses) love an acidic environment and by alkalizing the body it will stop the disease-causing microbes from multiplying. And, this is the main reason why consuming 1-2 tablespoons of ACV every day keeps the viruses away!
Cayenne pepper is awesome. The active component of cayenne pepper – capsaicin, gives the pepper its hot fiery taste. Capsaicin has long been used as a painkiller and for reducing nasal congestion.
There are a few ways you can take pepper to help clear a sinus infection. You can:
- Use a capsaicin nasal spray
- Add ½ teaspoon in a cup of hot water and drink for several days till you recover
- Sniffing a small amount on a spoon to clear airways
Ladies and gentlemen, you should also know that cayenne pepper works because when ingested, it helps to dilate vessels and help to break down mucus for draining. This compound will also relieve your facial pain, reduce the inflammation, stimulate the circulation and it also works great as an antibacterial agent. This ingredient is very useful and helpful in preventing and relieving the symptoms of sinusitis.
