Just when you thought you had reached the fall without getting sick, you’ve started to sneeze, cough, and are now expressing the tale tell signs that you’re sinuses are getting infected. However, you’re tired of taking every over the counter medication in existence just to get a little bit of relief. Fortunately, there is a way to cure sinus infections without having to resort to harsh over the counter medications.

One of my favorite ways to stave off those annoying symptoms of sinus disease is to use herbal remedies. Some of the best herbal remedies for sinus infections include eucalyptus, grapefruit seed oil, and Echinacea. While these aren’t always going to work fore everyone, one or the other will definitely help to alleviate some of the symptoms that you’re experiencing.

Another effective herbal treatment is Ephedra. However, with this herb come some health risks. Before taking Ephedra, you should consult with your physician to ensure that you’re not going to risk your health as a whole to treat a sinus infection. Once you’ve been cleared with your doctor, you need to ensure that you are taking Ephedra, as it is suppose to be taken and without any medications that could possibly have a bad reaction to it. Remember, anyone with heart conditions should steer clear of Ephedra.

Something that poses a low risk is ginger, a natural anti-inflammatory that will help to reduce the swelling in your sinus cavities and hopefully provide some relief from the excess drainage and postnasal drip that causes headaches and sore throats. Lastly, a couple other herbal treatments for sinus infection would be goldenseal, peppermint, lemon balm, and licorice roots. All of these things can be found quite easily and maintained on hand throughout the year just in case you have chronic sinus infections that would cause you to need another quick remedy.
