What are the symptoms of a sinus infection?

- Bad breath
- Moderate to high fever
So what’s the answer?
In this post, I’ll share the 4 steps I use to stop a sinus infection in its tracts!
#1 Diet & Inflammation
- Gluten, dairy, and sugar are common allergens that cause sinus infections.
- Eliminate these foods from your diet if you experience frequent sinus infections. If I was to choose just one, I’d get rid of dairy ASAP.
- Encourage lots of green vegetables & soups when you are under the weather.
- Drink clear liquids and caffeine-free tea.
- Consider adding a probiotic to your diet and healing your gut with The 4R approach.
- Add natural antibiotics. Garlic is the best antibiotic available.
- Make garlic toast!
- Toast some gluten-free bread and top with Organic Olive oil and sliced raw garlic.
- Fresh garlic is known as an antimicrobial to aid with infections.
- Eat daily until you are better.
- Garlic is a great anti-microbial and can fight viral and bacterial infections. Eat garlic raw if able, or mix with hot water and lemon for a garlic lemonade
- Make garlic toast!

#2 Tinctures For A Sinus Infection
- Take Echinacea tincture For 7-10days.
- Dosing: Take 30-40 drops 3-4x day in a little bit of water.
- Echinacea acts as an anti-microbial.
#3 Essential Oils For A Sinus Infection
- Add one drop of Thyme Essential Oil to a facecloth (for adults only), place it in the shower, and let the steam help open your sinuses.
- Alternatively, try herbal steam.
- Boil water and place one drop of Lavender or Thyme Essential oil in the bowl, cover your head and steam for 20 min. You can also use lavender dried buds or dried Thyme for less potent steam.
Apply Lavender Essential Oil topically
- Dab diluted Lavender Essential oil on your cheeks and under your ears.
- Dilute when using with children. ONLY 1 drop of essential oil to 1 tbs. of carrier oil. Don’t use with children under 2 years of age.
#4 Homeopathic Remedy For A Sinus Infection
Take 30 C Kali Bichromicum if you have the following symptoms:
- Pressure, fullness, and pain at the root of the nose. Discharge is thick, ropy green-ish yellow, post-nasal drip, violent sneezing; mucus tastes sticky, aching and fullness in global, worse with cold, 2-3 am, suppressed catarrh.
- Take 2-3x day if symptoms are improving.
- STOP taking homeopathy if your symptoms get worse, you should feel your symptoms improving with each dose of homeopathy. For a sinus infection, you may have to take it for 2 or 3 days, along with the tinctures and a change of diet. Be patient and rest
