    Herbal Remedies For Sinus Infection

    Many people are affected by sinus problems each year. Once you get a sinus infection you are almost assured of getting more in the future. Many medications fail to help get rid of sinus symptoms such as headache, stuffy nose and infection. Herbal remedies for sinus have been used successfully for centuries. They are safe and easy to use and have no ill side effects that most medications have.

    Here are some herbal remedies that can effectively treat sinus infections.

    Licorice The root of this herb helps reduce inflammation and stimulates the immune system to fight sinus infections. There are two types of licorice products. Be sure to take licorice capsules that boost the immune system and not those for treating ulcers.

    Eucalyptus This is a fragrant herb that soothes sore throats. It also has antiseptic properties and can help shrink swollen tissues such as swollen sinus passages. It is readily available in throat lozenges, which are a convenient way to take it. You can also drink eucalyptus tea. It is very helpful to steep some eucalyptus in a large pot of boiling water and use as an inhalant to unblock nasal passages.

    Peppermint The anti-inflammatory properties of peppermint help to calm mucous membranes. You may drink peppermint tea or steep the peppermint and breathe in the steam. The scent of peppermint when inhaled helps to ease your breathing.

    Ginger Ginger has long been known to relieve and prevent headaches. It is anti-inflammatory and contains substances that relieve pain. Take in capsule form, according to directions.

    You can also prevent a sinus infection by taking certain herbs, supplements and foods.

    Lemon balm Lemon balm is helpful in fighting off viruses and bacteria. Steep the dried leaves for 10 minutes in hot water. Strain and drink the tea warm. Alternatively, lemon balm tea can be used as a gargle.

    Echinacea Echinacea helps boost the immune system and makes it function better. It has been known to kill some viruses of the respiratory system. Take in capsule form. Increase the dosage at the onset of illness and decrease after several days. Do not take if you have an allergy to ragweed.

    Vitamins Vitamin C and zinc can help to lessen the duration of colds as well as to keep the symptoms down. Many sinus infections come from lingering colds. By fighting a cold early, you can help stave off a sinus infection. Take supplements in the form of capsule or lozenge during cold season and especially with the onset of any symptoms.

    Foods high in antioxidants help to build the immune system and prevent infections in the first place. Some of these foods include blueberries, artichokes, red beans, cranberries and pomegranates. Try adding these foods in your diet to help boost your immune system and prevent a sinus infection.

    Herbal remedies for sinus are better alternatives to drug medication. However, some herbs may have interactions with prescription medication so it is wise to check with your doctor before taking them.

    Your doctor will prescribes antibiotics for bacterial sinusitis, you may need to take them for as long as 3 weeks. If you really want to feel better, get plenty of rest and fluids so that your body's immune system can work along with the antibiotics to fight the infection.

    Feel free to view our site at [url]http://www.icohns.com[/url] - Integrated Clinics of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery (ICOHNS). It is a center for the diagnosis, therapeutic and rehabilitative management of ENT-Head and Neck concerns.
