Inflammation or irritation of the sinus cavities is called “Sinus Infection” and as a result of this kind infection you can feel headaches, pain, pressure and congestion. This infections are mostly caused by allergens or virosis.
Sinus Infection is a very common condition these days, but luckily there are some natural ways how to cure and clean sinuses.
1. Sinus irrigation
Effective way to clear your sinuses is nasal irrigation or neti pot rinse, where an already made solution goes inside and outside through the nostrils. This is an old method which is practiced since the ancient past.
Here is how to prepare net pot rinse:
- 2 small cups/glasses of hot, filtered water
- 1 or ½ tsp. of fine sea salt
- ¼ tsp. baking soda in each cup (optional)
We recommend you to use distilled water, because tap water might contain bacteria. For the best effect, the prepared solution should be near to the body temperature. Use it daily until the infection is cured, and continue to use the solution, rinsing several times per week.
2. Tongue and thumb clearing
There is also a way to clean your sinuses by your own physiology. Just follow this easy instruction:
- Draw your tongue evenly and solid towards the palate of the mouth.
- Put your thumb between your eyebrows, and press steadily.
- Keep this position for 20 to 30 seconds, and feel how the sinuses start to clear.
It is a very fast and effective method of clearing the sinuses. When you are done with the process, you might feel a slight change in your nasal and throat area, because the mucus is being cleaned.
3. Hot steam
This is another simple and effective method for cleaning and clearing your sinuses. It is very easy and can be done at home.
Just take a bowl with boiling water and place your head over the bowl. The hot steam will loosen the mucus and will widen the nasal paths.
4. Eucalyptus oil
Eucalyptus oil is another way to improve breathing. Just sniff an open bottle of eucalyptus oil and inhale the oil few times per day. Your sinuses will loosen, clearing the nasal cavities.
There are a lot of drugs for sinuses, but you should be aware that some of them can be very aggressive for your health. They can cause some damage, weaken your immune system, and the sinus infection may last longer than usual.
Natural ingredients are much safer, comfortable and cost-effective way of taking care for your health.
