2. Apple Cider Vinegar

This method works best if you start it at the very first sign of infection. Mix one to two teaspoons of apple cider vinegar in right ounces of water, along with one teaspoon of raw, organic honey. Drink three times each day over a five-day period. This will thin congested mucus and naturally help your body fight the infection.

 

3.  Water and Other Beverages

It sounds so simple, but the fact is that many people are dehydrated. The more congested you are, the more you need water, clear broth, and herbal tea. This will help to thin out the mucus. Avoid caffeinated beverages during this time. Focus on hot herbal teas with lemon and honey, clear water, and hot broth or soups.

 

4. Herbs

Here are some of the best herbs to help drain your sinuses. Add more garlic and onions to your soups and meals. You can even take a clove of garlic and crush it slightly. Wait five minutes, then swallow it whole. If that is a bit much for you, try mixing it with some honey to make it more palatable. Add onions and garlic to just about everything to help kill the infection and thin the mucus.

 

5. Turmeric and Ginger

Turmeric is a super anti-inflammatory with powerful antioxidant properties make this a terrific spice for everyone on the planet. When you combine turmeric with ginger in a hot tea form, you get a super pain relieving tea that can help to relieve sinus pressure in minutes! Ginger will also help to ease stomach upset, which often happens during sinus infections. Mix up a cup of ginger tea and add half a teaspoon of turmeric or curcumin powder. Drink three times each day until your sinus infection is gone.
