Every year around October, I get a cold and then it always turns into a sinus infection. I always end up having to take an antibiotic to kill the bacterial infection. If you do not do anything about it, the germ will just linger well into Thanksgiving and even past that. You may even miss some days of work or school because the infection makes you feel sick, including symptoms of fatigue and weakness.
For a few years now, I have been into more natural products than chemicals. I am referring to food plus personal body products. This year I wanted to try something different so that I could really avoid taking medication. I am fortunate to live near a pharmacy that sells plenty of homeopathic products. There is even a holistic pharmacist there that is practically like a doctor and gives good, sound advice. The best part is that his consultation is all free of charge.
When I told the pharmacist that I had a sinus infection, he immediately gave me a few things. I am glad that I have followed his advice, because usually by now, I would have been on an antibiotic. First of all, he gave me a natural nose inhaler called Olbas. The ingredients are peppermint, menthol, and eucalyptol. This clears your nasal passages right away and can be used as often as needed. You close one nostril with your finger while using the inhaler in the other one. Then switch sides and repeat the procedure. You inhale once or twice. This is very safe to use as compared to other inhalers that are not natural and have chemicals in them. This product could last up to three months depending on how often you use it.
Then to kill the infection, he gave me a plastic container bottle with a nasal wash system. The company is called Nasopure. The starter kit has about 20 stix of 3.75 grams of sodium chloride and sodium bicarbonate. You fill the container with eight ounces of warm water, and then add one package of the Nasopure salt. Then I was also given a bottle of Netiwash Silver and you put a few drops of that in the salt water. You shake it real well, and then put the cap of the bottle into one nostril. As you start squeezing the bottle, the water goes up your nose and if you do it correctly, the water will come out of the other nostril. You will immediately be able to blow your nose and clear it of any mucus. You can use four ounces of water in each nostril. When blowing your nose after the procedure, be careful not to blow too hard. At times I can feel pressure in my ear or something popping. It can be a little sore for a day or two after that.
Even though this has killed my bacterial infection, I still need to use it on a daily basis during this sinus season. At least I do not feel sick from it. I do not mind if my nose gets a little stuffy as long as I do not need to take an antibiotic. This product is so safe that it may even be used by a two year old. It is not recommended for under two years of age.
This nasal wash is known to clear your nose of pollutants such as mold, dust, dander, etc. It also reduces nasal passages that are inflamed and swollen. It is good for allergies, colds or sinus infections. Depending on your condition, this product may be used two or three times a day.
This procedure is better than using a neti pot. I tried it once and I did not like the feeling of water going up my nose. With the Nasopure container, you feel less discomfort and the job gets done quickly.
If you want to avoid going to the doctor and taking an antibiotic, try Nasopure today. It really works!
