3 Best home remedies for sinus infection – without complications

Since winter of 2013, i have been boosting my immune system with magnesium, zinc, echinea and goldseal extract, and Norweigian Fish Cod Oil (all cheaply bought from Walmart). Also, i use a Neti pot to flush my sinuses, eat garlic on a daily basis, and have started using Apple Cider Vinegar too. I also drink at least 6 cups of water per day, which is three full 16 oz water bottles – it makes a huge difference drinking enough or more water because it replenishes all your lost water from mucus drainage. A change in diet helped me alot too, and no I’m not a vegan or vegetarian (no offense to people who are).

And honestly, i do drink a lot of ethanol beverages weekly for years now, so for those who don’t have such a bad habit, what i use will be more effective for people who don’t drink beer and liquor excessively as i do – yeah, i know i would be cured faster, but it’s just the lifestyle i chose to live.


I feel i’m only a few more months left to be entirely cured, because i can see my polyps are nearly gone and my mucus is becoming more clearer everyday. Plus, i can breath through my nostrils with ease again, i don’t feel fatigue as much anymore, and i have no more headaches, all of which i had endured against since 2004, so i’m very aware of the difficulties and annoyances people face with sinus infection. So have patience people and i hope my own experiences written here will others be cure of their illness too.

I started by stop using regular toothpaste, and I homemade toothpaste only (every day I use something different like baking soda, or salt, or powdered calcium, or charcoal; put some on top of a wet toothbrush and brush with it, after rinsing I use 1 teaspoon of organic coconut oil and swish for 10 minutes or more and brush again just with the toothbrush and there’s no need to rinse again (my teeth feels cleaner and whiter and my mouth is not dry and acid anymore. Coconut oil alkalinizes the mouth. Regular toothpaste dries our mouths).

I chew raw garlic every day or night. I also drink a tea made with turmeric and honey (I found in the internet a great recipe called golden milk, an ancient Indian recipe that I’m going too). I take 1 capsule or more of clove daily or I drink clove tea. I also take probiotics (and I also have 2 sprays containing nux vomica and antimonium crudum among other ingredients), multi-vitamins and also I take extra vitamins C, D3 (and D2 from sunshine as well), A, E, magnesium, zinc, (I don’t take extra calcium and don’t recommend because too much of it can harden our veins). I eat sauerkraut and natural organic yogurt (both are natural probiotics). I also take 1/2 teaspoon baking soda in 1/2 cup of water daily (baking soda is alkaline and is being used in medicine).

My sinus can come anytime of the day even though the weather is cooling or warm. When it strikes, both my nose passage will be blocked and it will be hard to breath and follow by non stop coughing. I have tried many remedy and even visited the ENT doctors who gave me spray and some anti-biotic for the treatment. It works for a while and then back again and at one point it became so bad that I could not breath because I was coughing non stop not even a rest of 30 secs. My lips turn bluish and i was grasping for air but each time I tried it follows with a long coughing which kill my breath entirely. At this stage anybody will either faint or lost consciousness. What I did was something nobody will thought about it. I sat down in a relax sitting and lift my head upward and open my mouth to breath from thereon. Initially it was not easy so I drank some water first and then clear the passage way. After putting up my head for about 20 mins and breathing through my mouth, I was able to simmer down the sinus and make my breathing back to normal. According to my doctor, there is no actual cure for sinus except one can take preventive measures before it come up. Today, I still have sinus now and then but when I put in alot of exercises it will make me feel better in breathing.

OK, I typically don’t try a lot of this “home remedy” stuff because most just never worked. I have been suffering from sinus infections my whole life and when I get a cold, watch out! My sinuses produce so much thick mucus (I know gross) that it literally cannot get out through my nose (which I have a deviated septum and small nostrils as it is) or threw coughing/hacking it out. I literally have to just take meds and wait weeks if not months for it to go away.

Sleeping or laying my head down is the worse as the thick mucus just goes from side to side clogging up either nostril making it so hard to sleep. Plus, as things get backed up, my ears and head start to pulverize. All I ever wished was that I could drain that thick mucus out. I have even blown my nose so hard and extreme that I have caused my nose to swell for days, noticeable on my face…looks like I broke my nose. I just wanted something to get rid of the blockage…maybe a vacuum cleaner to the nose? You laugh but I have thought about it. I just wanted that thick mucus gone!

Well after 30 years of trying different remedies and almost giving up I hit the jackpot today! I came across this article and decided to try the ACV 50/50 mixture / boil / inhale trick. I mixed 1/2 cup of ACV and a little less that 1/2 cup of H20. Let it boil and placed a towel over my head and inhaled. It was intense! I could feel the fumes going into my nostril and burning…it was a good burning sensation. A few times I had to step back because the fumes were too intense. The result was immediate! I kept doing this for about 5 minutes. My sinus were clear but I did not want the mucus to come back. Obviously the fumes did not make my thick mucus go away. Since my nasal passages were clear, I thought this was a good time to do my netipot with saline rinse. Well SHUT-THE-FRONT-DOOR!! When I did my first side I immediately felt the mucus wanting to come out. I could easily (and that is the key word here) easily blow my nose and all the junk just came out. It was gross but it was the best sight ever! All that plugged up thick mucus was out! I was relieved. I was cured!
