What are some natural remedies for sinus infections?

I’m looking for natural (‘alternative’) solutions only, please.

    The only things that really helped me was when my Dr. told me about a sinus wash that will kill bacteria.
    you need

    distilled water
    sea salt
    liquid chlorophyll and colloidal silver from the health food store.
    in a glass mix 1/4 cup water with a pinch of salt and heat to body temperature.
    add 5 drops each silver and chlorophyll and mix.
    using a large dropper (like one used for infant medication) drop 2 full droppersfull into one side of the nose while laying down.
    Turn the head and let it drain out the other nostril. Be sure to have paper towels handy.
    The silver kills the bacteria and there are several hundred kind that can live in the sinus cavities and anti biotics don’t get rid of them all.
    Do this twice a day for a week, mixing up the mixture fresh each time.
    Then do it once a week for maintenance.
    There is nothing in this that will hurt you, and it cured me.
    I do not have to take claritin, or antibiotics anymore.
    best wishes

    medi- rinse i found mine at wal-greens about $12
    also try a steam

    Boil some water and if you can get some rose mary. Once water is boiling get some rose mary let it sit in for 30secs while flame is on. After doing so get a towel put it over your head at put your face above the pot to allow the steam and rosemary work it’s magic. Also i would not use tap water since it contains flourid, copper, dirt, rust and well stuff that would make it pointless

    -Take steam inhalation— Fill a bowl one-third full with hot water and add 3 to 5 drops of eucalyptus oil. Cover your head with a towel, lean over the bowl, and inhale the steam.
    -Make a mild saline solution by dissolving 1/2 teaspoon salt into 1/2 cup lukewarm water. Instill 3 to 4 drops of the solution into each nostril with a dropper 6 times a day to help loosen mucus in the nasal passages.
    -Get plenty of rest. Sleep with your head raised.

    Colloidal Silver, Echinacea with Vit. C & chopped raw garlic taken with a glass of water.

    Hope this helps you.

    For immediate relief, eat some table mustard & get the other remedies around.

    Potassium iodide helps but you must only use it for a very short term. It is unsuitable for long term use.

    Netti pot with saliene (salt water) It’s like a little tea pot that you rinse your sinuses with. Sound gross, I know, but it works! My kids and husband use it as well (ages 12 & 14) If they can do it, you can! Avail. at drug stores, Byerly’s etc. It was demonstrated on Oprah – that’s what clinched it for me!
