If your doctor doesn’t recommend them, can they really be effective in curing sinusitis? The answer is, yes they are very effective. Using herbs to treat health conditions is still the main form of treatment for most of the world. A much larger population relies on herb remedies than on what we call conventional medicine.
Herb-based substances are all derived from plants. You may have known that since herbs are natural substances. What you may not know is that 25 percent of all pharmaceutical drugs are also made from plants. That means that a large portion of modern drugs has the same origin as herbs.
In addition, many pharmaceutical drugs are synthetic versions of natural plant derivatives. Again, the drugs you use may, in fact, have plant origins. This means that herbal medicines and conventional drugs are somewhat related. The only major difference is, you can obtain herbs without a prescription.
One last note about herbs. Many conventional doctors are starting to accept the fact that these older remedies do indeed deserve merit in providing relief and cures for many of your health problems. So, in answer to the original question, herbs can be a very effective cure for your sinus problems.
The three best sinusitis herbal remedies are all from the onion family. They are garlic, echinacea, and goldenseal. They all strengthen your immune system and all have been called natural antibiotics.
Garlic has been prescribed for more than 5000 years to treat a variety of ailments. Garlic is available in pill, capsule and liquid forms you can find in natural food stores. Raw garlic is the best. It is recommended that you consume up to one clove per day or its equivalent.
This herbal is always at the top of everyone’s list of substances that promote and enhance your body’s immunity. It is considered an antiviral, antibiotic, anti-inflammatory and an immunostimulator.
If you take the liquid form you can take up to 40 drops three times per day. It also comes in capsule form. You should take echinacea like you would an antibiotic. You should take it regularly for a short time. You should not take it for more than three weeks. After three weeks, it is possible for your body to build up a tolerance for it so that it would no longer be as effective.
The golden herb is known for its ability to soothe inflammation. It is particularly useful in fighting inflammation in the respiratory area, hence its usefulness in treating sinusitis. It has also shown a propensity to enhance the mucous membranes, the lining of the nose throat and sinuses.
You can take 20 to 30 drops of the liquid form or its equivalent three times per day. If you have any allergic reaction to ragweed then you should not take goldenseal. In fact, with any and all herbs that you anticipate taking you should consult your health professional before beginning any treatment.
Garlic, echinacea, and goldenseal are among the best sinusitis herbal remedies you can take. Use them wisely and always in consult with your health professional and you should be able to see significant improvement in your sinusitis.
