If you have ever treated sinusitis, you probably know that it is an inflammation of the lining of your sinuses. It is accompanied with rather unpleasant and painful symptoms.
“A sinus infection occurs when the tissue in the sinuses swells up, that leads to a buildup of mucus, pain, and discomfort. The sinuses are the air-filled pockets in the bones of the face that form the top part of the respiratory tract. These pockets run from the nose into the throat,” HealthLine reports.
Common symptoms of sinusitis:
- Pain in the forehead/temples
- Nasal congestion
- Green nasal discharge
- Impaired sense of smell
- Bad breath and awful taste in the mouth
- Mucus discharge that slips down the throat from the nose
- Tenderness in the under-eye area and the bridge of the nose
Luckily, you can treat this condition with natural remedies and reduce the inflammation without using chemical-packed remedies. Nature has given you so much, and you now can destroy the bacteria in your sinuses and clear the passages.
Apple cider vinegar is a powerful remedy for sinusitis thanks to its antibacterial and antifungal effect. This vinegar is rich in vitamins, minerals, fiber and antioxidants.
When combined with cayenne pepper, apple cider vinegar is even more powerful. Capsaicin has strong medicinal properties, and boosts immunity.
Here is how to make your all-natural remedy:
- ¼ raw and organic apple cider vinegar
- 1 tsp cayenne pepper
- 1 tbsp raw honey
- 1 lemon wedge, juiced
- ½ c water
Bring the water to a boil, and add the apple cider vinegar in it. Add your honey, cayenne pepper and lemon juice. Stir and enjoy your drink several times a day until your condition improves.
