Sinusitis is a condition caused by inflammation in the sinuses. It is often a result of viral, fungal and bacterial infections or allergies. The condition causes symptoms such as thick nasal mucus, facial pain, a plugged nose, cough, fatigue, headaches and congestion. The common treatment for sinusitis includes taking prescription antibiotics which can have adverse side-effects, which is why a lot of people suffering from sinusitis turn to natural remedies for help. Luckily, we have one such remedy that will reduce the condition’s symptoms and treat it in no time. Here’s how to prepare it:
- Apple cider vinegar
Grate the ginger first, then mix it with the apple cider vinegar in a glass bowl and close it with a lid afterwards. Leave the mixture for 10 days at room temperature and shake it occasionally.
The first phase of the treatment includes inhaling the mixture by lowering your head with a towel over it over the bowl. Next, soak a handkerchief in the mixture and put it on your neck overnight. Repeat the treatment for 5 days and the inflammation in your sinuses should gradually be reduced. The remedy will also relieve your pain thanks to the sharp smell of ginger.
You can also use ginger against sinusitis. Boil 50 gr. of the root in a pot of water, then remove it from the heat and inhale the vapors with a towel over your head. This is another effective remedy that will reduce the congestion in your sinuses and treat the symptoms of sinusitis. Whatever remedy you choose, they will treat the symptoms effectively and work far better than painkillers and antibiotics.
