Posted Oct 02 2008 4:23pm
Have you ever had a sinus infection that was so disturbing to your day that it literally stopped you from getting around and doing your regular activities? When sinus infections begin, usually with the sniffles, most people often feel they are bound to come down with the flu or a bad cold.
If you're sick and tired of all the medications you normally take when you have sinus infections and want to avoid the side effects, here are some home remedies for severe sinus infections that you can use. These home remedies for severe sinus infections are much easier to take than drugs and you will feel a whole lot better once you've used them.
One of the best home remedies that you could use when you have a severe sinus infection is the home humidifier. You can purchase one of these for a minimum investment and love yourself for it down the road. If you want to go the homemade route, you can try this...using a teapot (or any pot or pan to emanate a clean vapor after you boil water in it), place your face near the teapot where the vapor is coming out from and it would serve as your humidifier to open up your sinuses. Place a towel over your head while inhaling the warm air and hopefully, in no time, you'll enjoy better breathing and fewer headaches.
Making hot lemonade with fresh lemons, which you can easily do at home, is another great home remedy for a severe sinus infection. All you have to do is follow the instructions of regular lemonade, but use hot water instead of cold. This is a great home remedy for a severe sinus infection in the sense that it protects you from fevers, colds or the flu because of the lemon’s antibacterial and anti-virus properties. Within a few minutes you'll feel calmer and have soothed the sinuses, which is very comforting during that time.
Go Dairy Free
Do you consume dairy products such as milk, cheese, eggs and butter on a regular basis? Sometimes, especially if you are prone to frequent sinus problems, the need to go dairy-free is extremely important to give your respiratory system time to clear and strengthen. Instead of the dairy, you should consume plenty of water to hydrate your body, thin the mucous and flush the remaining toxins from your body.
