Sinus Infection Home Remedy - The Kreative Life

For the past three months, I’ve been suffering through sinus infection, after sinus infection, after sinus infection (literally). Usually, if I get one it will be only once or twice a year.

I’m not sure why I’m getting them back-to-back and my doctor has prescribed different types of antibiotics to cure them. I’m now seeing an allergist to see if they can figure out what’s going on.

Until we figure out how to get this under control I’m stuck with switching up my antibiotics, taking allergy meds, and those good ol’ home remedies.

Since I just finished my most recent round of antibiotics and I still have fluid in my sinuses, I had to go to my tried and true way of getting some relief with the sinus infection home remedy.

This remedy is definitely not for the faint of heart (and if you decide to try it, you should consult your doctor first).

It’s super spicy, doesn’t taste that great, but it surely offers some relief from the pressure. You can see the effects of my sinus infections; dark circles under the eyes and unsightly wrinkles.

It’s starting to make me look older than what I really am and I constantly look tired even if I’m wide awake.

Sinus Infection Home Remedy

The ingredients are pretty simple:

1 Tbsp. Honey

1 Tsp. Extra Virgin Coconut Oil

¼ Tsp. Ground Cayenne Pepper

1-  500 Mg Turmeric Curcumin Capsule

10 Oz. Hot Water

I know that this sounds like a crazy combination, but there’s a reason this mixture works for me.

Turmeric is an anti-inflammatory, so any inflammation I have in my sinuses is relieved. Since turmeric is oil-soluble and not water-soluble, I use coconut oil to help with absorption into my system.

I open the turmeric capsule up and just pour the powder directly into the glass.

If you do it this way, make sure you use a dark-colored mug because turmeric can stain anything yellow very easily (I used a light-colored glass in this post, just so you can see the color).

Cayenne pepper is a natural anti-bacterial and a decongestant.

My sinus infections have been bacterial infections, so this helped a lot. Besides liking honey for it’s soothing effect, it is another natural anti-bacterial.
