Sinus infection represents an inflammation of the lining of the
sinuses that often lead to facial pain, fevers and persistent headaches.
Surprisingly, there are numerous effective natural cures for
eliminating the viruses and bacteria responsible for these health issues
and cleaning the sinuses.
An acute sinusitis represents an infection that often lasts up to 4 weeks. On the other side, chronic sinusitis can last for 4 months, if left uncured.
The area between your eyes, forehead and the hollow air spaces within the cheek bones are often attacked by either bacteria or viruses. They actually cause extreme or painful discomfort in these cavities and thick mucus blockages.
However, antibiotics are not the best solution for this issue, they often cause dangerous side effects. If your sinusitis is caused by a virus, antibiotics are not helpful. In order to enable it to cure itself, your body should be given the right healing food.
