The below provides a general overview on this topic and may not apply to everyone. Any treatment protocol should be discussed with a qualified healthcare practitioner ... Please refer to: Medical & Legal Disclaimer.
- A tablespoon of 3% hydrogen peroxide added to 1 cup of non-chlorinated water can be used as a nasal spray. Depending on the degree of sinus involvement, one will have to adjust the amount of peroxide used.
- Clear blocked sinuses with hot steam:
- Hold your face over a bowl of hot water, place a towel over your head, and breathe deeply through your nose. The steam will help clear up your sinuses.
- Keep your sinuses healthy:
- Wash your hands frequently as this can help you avoid the upper respiratory infections that commonly lead to sinus problems
- Keep the air clean - as irritants, such as cigarette / cigar / pipe smoke and household toxins, can cause your sinus membranes to swell.
- Indoor air tends to be dry, which can aggravate your sinuses. Using a humidifier can help, but don't overdo it as too much humidity in your home can promote mold growth.
