Treat winter sinus infection with this natural antidote.
This time of year can highlight any small problems with your immune system, if you are prone to getting blocked up you are even more susceptible.
Sinusitis is an infection in the sinuses which can be incredibly painful and inhibit symptoms such as mucus, a blocked feeling in your nose and pain around the nose area.
Sadly, blowing your nose is not going to do anything to help with sinusitis, you need something more potent to help.
The answer you are looking for is apple cider vinegar.
Sinusitis is often caused by bacteria and infection in the nasal passage, but instead of reaching for the antibiotics, apple cider vinegar is just as effective for killing infection in the body.
What make apple cider vinegar so potent is its high concentration of malic acid and high levels of nutrients and vitamins.
The best apple cider vinegar to use is organic, raw and unfiltered. Unfiltered apple cider vinegar will contain sediments at the bottom of the jar, these are the most beneficial parts, known as the ‘mother’.
Drinking apple cider vinegar will instantly start to work on clearing your sinuses as it breaks up the mucus, killing any bacteria due to its strong antibacterial properties. Apple cider vinegar also gives the body a much needed boost to the immune system, exactly what is needed when you feel under the weather and have been suffering from a cold or an infection.
The following recipe is for an apple cider vinegar tonic which should be used when you are struck down with sinusitis, or a particularly bad cold that doesn’t seem to be getting better.
