Cold and Sinus Steam Bath

Sinus infection, also called acute sinusitis, causes inflammation and swelling around the cavities in your nasal passages. This hinders nasal drainage, causing mucus to build up. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, an estimated 29.8 million adults were diagnosed with sinusitis in 2010. Sinus infections are often associated with colds.

Apple Cider Vinegar:

Known as cider vinegar or ACV, is a type of vinegar made by crushing apples and squeezing out the liquid.

ACV has long been used as for its medicinal properties dating back to 400 B.C., when Hippocrates used it to treat his patients.

AVC is considered to be a potent remedy for illnesses and overall health.

Apple cider vinegar has antibacterial and antiviral properties which can help clear out sinus infections and colds.

 

In a bowl, mix the following:

  • 1 cup of hot filtered water
  • 2 Tbsps of organic apple cider vinegar
  • Cover both you head and the bowl with a towel

Try to inhale the steam 8 to 10 times, 2 to 3 times a day.

    We heat our home with a wood burning heater i keep water pot on all the time is there anything you can put in it to helpwith sinus problems l keepone all winter. Thanks

    • You should try alternating fresh or dry Rosemary, lavender and cinnamon. This will help disinfect the air. Depending on the size of the wood burner we would recommend about a handful. If dried a few teaspoons, test and see how it works. You don’t ant it the scent to overwhelm the house, but just enough to be pleasant.
