Sinus Infections are the leading winter complaint, especially in dry areas like Colorado.
Suffering from a sinus infection can be devastating for those who tend to vulnerable to sinus problems. I was once called into an emergency surgery for a 30 year old man who had suddenly fallen into a coma. Turns out he had a giant booger behind his frontal sinuses which had grown so big, it displaced part of his brain causing a severe increase in intracranial pressure and subsequent coma.
After removing the giant mucous plug (booger), we took fat from his belly to cushion the brain because the booger had compressed the brain so much, it left a giant place in his skull where the booger had been.
The best way to treat a sinus infection?
Get Oil of Oregano
Dr. Iris Moore, Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT) Specialist, Omaha, NE, is the first medical doctor I have had the pleasure to meet, who recommends treating patients with Oil of Oregano and other natural remedies, in her professional practice.
This was an amazing experience for me, since herbal and complementary therapies make up a good deal of my cures. It was wonderful to actually have treatments I know to be safe and extremely effective, validated by someone in the medical establishment.
In addition to taking a dose of Oil of Oregano everyday, in pill form, especially for Diabetics, Dr. Moore recommends a nasal rinse utilizing the following recipe:
Nasal Rinse for Sinus Infection
- 6 oz of lukewarm water
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
Use two times per day.
During times of acute infection, Oil of Oregano can be taken more often, as tolerated. Don’t forget the Vitamin C…up to 5,000mg per day as tolerated.
Most sinus infections, given time, will clear up without antibiotics. So it’s prudent to wait it out while you care for yourself.
Slow down, get plenty of rest and nurse yourself with good food and avoid refined sugar.
