Sinusitis is a paranasal cavity inflammation and it is usually a result of viruses, allergies, bacteria or fungi. Some of the symptoms of sinusitis are inconveniences and discomfort, which makes it highly important to treat this condition and improve the symptoms in time, before they start affect our daily lives.
Some other common symptoms of sinusitis are discomfort (as mentioned above), headaches, congestions, fever, nasal secretion, fatigue and persistent cough. All of this results from the accumulation of mucus in the paranasal cavity as a result of an obstruction caused by inflammation.
A condition such as paranasal sinusitis is usually treated with conventional antibiotics and medicines which often come packed with side effects. It is in times like these when we must turn to a natural alternative treatment for the best effects.
Ingredients you will need:
- Apple Cider Vinegar
Start off by grating the ginger and then mix the apple cider vinegar with the ginger in a glass jar with a hermetic lid. Let the mixture sit on a room temperature for 10 days, giving it a nice shake from time to time to make sure the compounds are mixed well.
After 10 days, start performing inhalations using this mixture. After your done with the inhalation treatment, dampen a handkerchief with the mixture and place it on your neck, letting it sit overnight. Repeat this treatment for 5 days and you will start noticing improvements and results. The inflammation as well as the headaches will start to disappear, thanks to the sharp smell and powerful compounds of ginger and apple cider vinegar.
Ginger can be used for the treatment of sinusitis in another way as well. Put 50 g of ginger in a pan with water, and set it on high heat until it boils. When the pan starts steaming, remove it from heat and start inhaling the steam. It is recommended that you put your head over the pan and cover your head with a towel, to prevent the steam from evaporating.
Trying out either of these two methods are guaranteed to help you with the treatment of sinusitis. You can easily use these two treatments as a natural alternative to antibiotics and analgesics.
