At Detroit Sinus Center, we’re experts when it comes to sinus care. From endoscopic sinus surgery to balloon sinuplasty, we’re capable of providing efficient sinusitis treatment for those in Detroit, Allen Park, and Southfield, Michigan. While it’s always best to come visit your sinus doctor if you have a sinus infection, sometimes minor sinus problems can be cleared up at home. If you happen to have any sinusitis issues, here are a few natural sinus remedies you can perform by yourself.
By using a saline spray or wash, you can flush out any mucus from your nasal passages. Saline washes are proven to be very effective for clearing up sinus problems so they should be one of your first choices.
Including all the other health benefits of staying hydrated – drinking water will also keep your sinuses moist. Keeping your sinuses moist is good for your sinus health; when sinuses are dry, they get irritated.
While it doesn’t literally have to be a bath, hot water vapor can moisten your sinuses. You can take a hot shower or bath or even just boil a pot of water so that you can inhale some steam needed to get your sinuses moist.
When the air is too dry, your sinuses won’t flow and drain as properly as they should. This congestion can then lead to sinus pain or sinusitis. A humidifier is helpful because it will keep the air moist and avoid these problems.
One of the less thought of things that actually clears up sinuses is spicy (or hot) food. By having some hot wings, curry, or peppers, you’ll find your sinuses feel more open and clear.
