Do you feel like your head is going to explode?
Is the pressure behind your eyes unbearable?
Are you so congested that you can’t breathe?
Sinus infections can be absolutely miserable. Your head feels like it’s been invaded by a foreign substance and the sinus pressure can be extremely painful. It can be near to impossible to try to work, go to school or take care of your family when you feel this way. If dealing with painful sinus infections has become a way of life for you, especially during the fall and winter months, then we are here to finally offer you some answers for relief.
What is a sinus infection?
A sinus infection, also called sinusitis, is inflammation or swelling of the tissue lining the sinuses. The infection can also spread to your ears and chest. It can be caused by allergies, a bacterial or fungal infection, or even by chemicals such as air pollution, cigarette smoke, or fragrance. People with a weak immune system, allergies or asthma have a greater risk of getting sinus infections.
Sinuses are air filled cavities found within your cheeks, behind your forehead and eyebrows, on either side of the bridge of your nose and behind your nose. The main function of the sinuses is to protect you from dust, dirt, allergens, pollutants or any foreign substance by cleaning the air that enters your nose when you breathe. When your sinuses become filled with fluid, bacteria can grow and cause an infection.
You have four sets of sinus cavities:
Symptoms of a Sinus Infection
Facial pain or tenderness
Pressure or pain in sinuses, around eyes and cheeks
Nasal or postnasal drainage that is discolored
Pain in upper jaw and teeth
Blockage in your nose
If you’ve been suffering from chronic sinus infections, then you know that doctors will prescribe antibiotics and decongestants. You should know, however, that these medications do nothing to prevent the reoccurrence of sinus infections. Think about it. With all the antibiotics and over-the-counter medications you have taken over the years, why are you still getting sinus infections? Because you are not solving the underlying cause of why they occur in the first place.
15 Tips for the Prevention and Treatment of Sinus Infections
1. Sublingual allergy drops are an effective immunization to help prevent sinus infections from occurring. By giving a dose under the tongue of the very substances to which a person reacts, a good blocking antibody is built up, which blocks the allergy reaction. Allergy drops desensitize the individual to the allergens to which they are reacting. Research shows that sublingual allergy drops improved asthma and seasonal allergy symptoms in most patients by as much as 40% compared with a placebo or other allergy medication. (1)
2. Colloidal Silver is a natural antibiotic that kills bacteria and is used to fight infections naturally. It does not cause an overgrowth of intestinal yeast like prescription antibiotics do.
3. Xlear Nasal Spray soothes and moisturizes the sinus and nasal passages, and Xylitol helps kill bacteria in the sinus cavity.
4. Neti Pot can be used to rinse your sinus of pollen.
5. Vitamin C works as a natural antihistamine that may help reduce allergy symptoms. It helps increase immune system function and supports the adrenal glands.
6. Vitamin D improves your immune system and is a natural anti-inflammatory.
7. Zinc is an essential mineral that plays a key role in many functions of the body and supports the immune system.
8. Colostrum helps regulate and balance the immune system.
9. Optimal thyroid function is key for a healthy immune system and helps improve resistance to infection.
10. Optimal adrenal function is needed to ensure adequate cortisol production. Cortisol is both your natural antihistamine and a natural anti-inflammatory hormone. It is essential for good health as it boosts your immune system, increasing resistance to infections and inflammation.
11. Garlic has antibacterial, antiviral and anti-fungal properties. It helps boosts immune system function. Garlic has been used around the world for centuries because of its incredible healing powers and ability to fight illness and disease.
12. Spices such as chili peppers help clear your sinuses and open the blocked nasal airways.
13. Heat compress or hot wash cloth placed over your forehead can help break up the sinus congestion.
14. Stay hydrated and drink a lot of water to keep your sinuses moist and loosen and thin out the mucus.
15. Acupuncture or acupressure can be used to relieve sinus pressure and pain.

Garlic and Xlear Nasap spray respond very effectively to my sinus infection at initial stage.
The terms “sinus infection” and “sinusitis” are commonly used interchangeably, but sinusitis simply refers to the inflammation of the sinuses, with or without an infection. A sinus infection occurs when the sinuses become inflamed and swell up because of a viral, bacterial, or fungal infection. Sinus blockage often precedes this inflammation. Top Causes: Allergies, Nasal polyps, congenital diseases, Asthma and other reactive diseases.
