Sinus infection or sinusitis is actually just an inflammation of our nasal sinuses. From this issue, more than 37 million American citizens are affected annually. The inflammation can be chronic or acute, it can be there up to several months, and in some cases for years if it’s not treated.
Dr. Mercola reported about the sinus infection:
“At first our mucus membrane in the sinuses and nose must be irritated from a pollution, allergy or a cold, then they become inflamed and the process goes on. Once these membranes are irritated and inflamed, the cilia motion is slowed down, which are the hairs in our nose that are coating the membranes, and they are the ones responsible for mucus on the surface. Then the irritation is responsible for the mucus glands to secrete more mucus than the usual, that way it will be able to dilute the bacteria inside. In this process, mucus is accumulated in your sinuses, which can be quickly be infected after this process.”
Most commonly this health issue is treated with antibiotics, but these antibiotics only have the ability to relieve from the symptoms of this disease, but the root of the problem is still left untreated. Here are the main symptoms of the sinus infection:
- Post-nasal drip
- Reduces sense of smell and taste
- Pain or swelling in the facial area
- Head congestion
- Nasal Congestion
- Colored and thick nasal drainage
- A runny nose
Actually according to the latest researches, it was discovered that this health issue is an immune disorder that is only triggered by the fungus. There is a study preformed by the Mayo Clinic back in 1999, in which it was written that:
“96% of the ones suffering from this chronic disease are “fungal sensitized”, which means that the inhaled fungal organisms are causing immune responses. This is the thing that answers the question why the antibiotics are not that effective, when it comes to treating this disease, because they are targeting the bacteria, not the fungi which is the root. Steroids and antibiotics can make things even worse when it comes to fungal infections, by eliminating the natural biological terrain from your body. With that creating an environment for the fungi to grow and inhibit.”
The mucus lining of our sinuses is where 90% of the people who suffer from this disease have the fungi accumulated, because of the inhalation of mold spores and fungus in the air. And the ones that are susceptible to this chronic disease, will have some symptoms as an immune response to the fungi, which can later become sinusitis infection.
According to some researches, the fungicide have the ability to reduce the swelling and inflammation.
But there is still a way to strengthen your immune system and prevent from sinusitis, and if you want to achieve that, then keep reading below, we have a few tips for you. below we will tell you how to create an environment that is hostile for the fungus that we have inside our body:
- The fungus is feeding on sugar and grains, so you might want to avoid their consumption, or you can just reduce it.
- You need to stimulate the circulation of air and cleanse the mucus to lower the risk of infections, so you need to start exercising.
- Eat cod liver oil or high-quality fish every day, that way you will supply your body with the needed amount of EPA, DHA and omera-3’s, that way you will be able to treat the symptoms of the infection.
- Make sure to also consume coconut oil made out of dry coconuts or copras, because they are filled with lauric acid, which has one of the most powerful antifungal, antibacterial and antiviral properties.
- You need to avoid the foods that you consumed, which are filled with fungal toxins (mycotoxins).
- Create a mixture of salt and water, and wash your nasal cavities with this simple mix.
- Make sure you give the aroma therapies with essential oils a try.
