These remedies can be used for people suffering from many sinus disorders: chronic sinusitis, or during cold season when you are getting a runny nose!  People with seasonal allergies can also use these techniques to improve nasal symptoms.

1. Herbs to eat or take as supplements

  • Turmeric
  • Goldenseal
  • Ginger

2. ‘Medicated’ Steam

Chop 1-2 inch piece of fresh organic ginger root.  Heat 1-2 Cups of water in a pot with the ginger root and then turn off heat once gently boiling and allow to cool for up to a minute and add 5-10 drops of pure eucalyptus oil.  Being careful of the hot pot and removing it from the heating element, cover your head with a towel and lean over the pot and inhale the steam, testing the temperature first to avoid a steam burn.
note: These are natural immune boosters and anti-inflammatory and can help improve chronic sinus disorders if taken daily.  Like all natural remedies, it takes longer to see effects that with western medicine, and should not be used for acute bacterial sinusitis as a substitute for seeing your doctor for sinus disorders that are not improving.
