If you have ever had a sinus infection, you know the true pain and suffering it can put you through. Even though we haven’t had a very harsh winter this year (yet), there are reports of a particularly nasty cold virus making the rounds.


There are numerous ideas as to why we catch colds more during the winter than other times of the year, but not one of them have been proven. It seems to make sense that, because it is cold, we tend to stay indoors more.  With the holidays in the middle of winter, it is easier to pass along these viruses.

Another thought, however, is that we get less ultraviolet light during the dark winter months. Viruses are very sensitive to ultraviolet lights as it destroys their DNA. Still another thought is that when humans step outside into cold weather, our body temperature drops just enough that the rhinovirus (which causes colds) or the influenza virus (which causes the flu) can take hold and begin to duplicate itself.

Regardless of the cause, when your head feels as if it is going to explode, and when your eyes have so much pressure behind them that they feel ready to pop out of their sockets, one thing is clear: You want relief and you want it now.

So there you are, lying on the sofa, feeling like death, and your local television station starts advertising the latest overpriced cold and sinus medication.

The problem is that Western medicine only looks at relieving the symptoms, not treating the root cause of the problem. Besides, all those sinus drugs tend to leave you feeling sleepy or out of it.

You don’t have to live with a nasty sinus infection, however. There are plenty of natural ways to deal with it. You can kill the infection and clear up your sinuses quickly and easily.
