You Know, Right?
Sinus infections are brought about by an infection that inflames the mucous membranes lining the nasal and sinus passages and blocks the sinus openings. The results-
- a headache that feels like your head being crushed from various facial points;
- a bad cough that worsens at night;
- a persistent bad breath;
- and a nose that just goes drip, drip, drip.

These sinus infection symptoms would really be enough to drive anyone over the edge. And unfortunately, YOU know exactly what it’s like. But you are not alone, in fact, at any given time you have a bout with sinus infection, chances are there are some 30-50 million people elsewhere dealing with the same problem. Fortunately, you don’t have to endure all the pain and discomforts. Here are some simple remedies to help you obtain sinus infection relief.

Load up on Liquids
You can obtain sinus infection relief by increasing your oral fluid intake. Cold and hot fluids including plain water, fruit juices or tea all count. Drinking up thins out the mucus secretions, facilitating drainage. Make this more effective by taking apple cider vinegar, which has properties that enable it to break mucus bonds. In addition, teas infused with sage, fennel and anise herbs are known to do wonders in decongesting.

Grace Under Pressure
Applying gentle pressure over sinuses effectively brings sinus infection relief by relieving the pain and bringing a fresh supply of blood to the sinus areas. Apply a gentle but firm pressure using your finger pads on the areas between your eye brows and on both sides of your nose for 10 seconds. Repeat this process after fifteen to thirty second intervals and after a few minutes, you should be relieved significantly.

Humidity in the air you breathe can do wonders. The moisture in the air prevents your nasal passages from drying out. Moist nasal passages keeps the cilia working efficiently to allow mucus to flow and “sweep away” irritants and germs that can start a sinus infection or make it worse. An air humidifier can do the job. Just remember to clean it to prevent molds from growing. Also, position it as close as possible to the place where you most frequent. For example, if you place one in your bedroom, position it at your bedside rather than across the room to maximize the benefit.

If you don’t have a humidifier, simply standing in a hot shower for a few minutes or breathing in the vapors from a steaming pot of water with a towel over your head will do the trick. Breathing in vapors is so effective, that this principle was used for nebulization, a very common medical intervention used in the treatment of asthma, rhinitis and now, even sinus infections.

Sinus Dynamics, an industry leader in the treatment of sinus infections, takes nebulization to the next level by customizing a complete line of medications including antibiotics, anti-fungals, decongestants, among others, for use with its state-of-the-art nebulizers. One nebulizer by Sinus Dynamics is SinusAero. Using the SinusAero system, the vapor opens up the blocked sinus openings to allow the aerosolized medications to directly exert their therapeutic effects on the sinus and nasal passages much faster compared to taking oral medications.
