Natural remedies that combat sinus problems

May 20, 2009 by  

Natural remedies that combat sinus problems As the allergy season continues, many sufferers will be reminded that sinus problems not only affect their quality of daily life, but they may also be difficult to treat. However, some practitioners have recommended natural therapies as a good alternative.

Herbal remedies for sinusitis that have been long known to provide relief of congestion, breathing problems and coughing include pineapple extract called bromelain which is considered to be a natural anti-inflammatory agent.

Other popular remedies include grapefruit seed extract, potassium supplements that dry up mucous and apple cider vinegar diluted in water that is believed to thin mucous layers, according to EarthClinic.com.

Chinese medicine practitioners have also recommended head acupressure -pressing points located on either side of the neck in a depression at the base of the skull – or hand acupressure involving the point located about 1.5 inches in from the edge of the webbing between the index finger and thumb.

According to Dr. Mark Pitstick, a health commentator writing for the Chillicothe Gazette, those suffering from sinus problems should consider using a saline sinus rinse kit to flush particles from the sinuses painlessly.

He says some people have also benefitted from herbal supplements such as Sinupret, which contains a blend of five herbs, including European elder, common sorrel, cowslip, European vervain and gentian.
