Sinusitis, cold, flu, phlegm, and rhinitis are all conditions happening in the head. Sinusitis is inflamed and/or swollen sinuses, usually caused by an allergy, bacterial, fungal, and viral infection. The most common symptoms of sinusitis are thick nasal mucus, headaches, cough, congestion, clogged nose, fatigue, and facial pain.
When it comes to treating these health issues, majority use prescription antibiotics. However, they come with certain side-effects, so it’s best to avoid them when there’s a natural solution to the problem you’re dealing with. And in this case, there is – a natural remedy that will help you alleviate your symptoms and treat your condition in an instant.
- 1 medium-sized ginger root
- 2 dl. apple cider vinegar
Grate the ginger and mix it with 2 dl. apple cider vinegar in a glass bowl. Store it in a glass jar and cover it with a lid. Keep it at a room temperature for ten days, and don’t forget to shake it occasionally.
How to Use
To reduce the inflammation in your sinuses, lower your head over the jar with a towel over your head, and inhale the vapors of the mixture. Inhale for 5-10 min. Then, soak a handkerchief in the APV/ginger mixture and place it on your neck before going to bed. Leave it to stay overnight.
Do this treatment for five consecutive days and you’ll notice improvements. In addition, you’ll notice your pain significantly relieves thanks to the strong scent of ginger.
Here’s another way to use ginger as a home remedy for sinusitis:
Boil 50 grams of ginger root in a pot of water. Remove from heat and inhale with a towel over your head. This inhalation will relieve the congestion in your sinuses and treat the sinusitis symptoms.
Both remedies are effective and safe methods to treat your sinusitis better than prescribed antibiotics, but without their side effects.
