Healthy Hot Chocolate And 8 Natural Remedies for a Sinus Infection

I myself have had four sinus surgeries in my past so let me start by saying I understand your pain!  They can be tricky and stubborn and leave even the best ear nose and throat doctors scratching their heads.  I have done endless research on the topic in order to heal myself when hundreds of rounds of antibiotics and many surgeries left me worse off than before.

NOTE: I am not opposed to antibiotics as in many cases they saves lives.  This is also not to replace your physician’s advice.  It’s important for people to be in charge and informed of their health. If you do get that prescription for antibiotics don’t forget to talk to your doctor about taking probiotics as well, as the antibiotics will deplete your gut flora.  Enjoy these tips as well as my healthy recipe for hot chocolate this holiday season.

8 Natural Remedies for a Sinus Infection

1) Remove sugar, wheat, corn, yeast, soy, peanuts, and processed foods from your diet.  These types of foods feed fungus, and according to the Mayo clinic, 96% of all sinus infections are fungal in nature.  So don’t feed it!  Bacteria are almost always present as well since they are opportunistic and the fungus creates the perfect environment for the bacteria to thrive as well.

2) Talk to your doctor about taking an anti-fungal.  Since almost all sinus infections are proven to be fungal in nature, adding natural anti-fungals like apple cider vinegar, caprylic acid, garlic, oil of oregano, coconut oil and grapefruit seed extract can be helpful.  Colostrum is also important as it not only kills pathogens naturally but heals and seals a leaky gut You may even require a prescription anti-fungal for a month or so.  Rotate these anti-fungals as fungus can become accustomed to one and learn how to survive around it.

3) Probiotics help to restore the microbiome in your digestive system.  If you have ever been on an antibiotic this is crucial.  Antibiotics wipe out the good bacteria in your intestines (where 80% of your immune system lies) so it’s important you replace it.

4) Check your environment – do you have any leaks or suspect you live in a moldy environment? Fix leaks and add a quality air filter to your home.

5) Take a good digestive enzyme with your meals. Digestive enzymes improve your body’s ability to breakdown food, as well as promote a healthy gut, which remember is where most of your immune system lies.

6) Irrigate your sinuses with a saline solution.  This will help flush out any bacteria or fungus from your sinuses.

7) Research is finding that chronic sinus sufferers have less good bacteria in their sinuses, more specifically the bacteria called Lactobacillus sakei.  Finding a probiotic that contains this strain may be helpful.  Bacteria and fungus also form biofilms which are a protective coating making it difficult for antibiotics to kill.  Probiotics may also help break up these biofilms.

8) Pray!  God created our bodies and he knows how to heal them.  He is interested in not just your spiritual side but the physical part of you as well.  Pray for direction on healing as He is a God of restoration! Once you help yourself, help others!  There is healing in itself when you come outside of yourself and reach out to help others.

Creamy Hot Chocolate Recipe:

HOT CHOCOLATE INGREDIENTS
  • 1 cup of light coconut milk
  • 1 tbsp. coco powder – I used Equal Exchange Baking Cocoa (it does not contain sugar)
  • ½ tsp. vanilla extract or flavor
  • ½ tbsp. coconut oil
  • 4½ tsp. xylitol
  • Pinch of salt
HOT CHOCOLATE INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Heat all ingredient in a saucepan on medium heat until hot. The coco powder does not completely dissolve so here is my favorite part! Use a frother to blend ingredients. If you don’t have a frother you can mix all ingredients in a bullet or blender once hot.  Don’t skip this last step in order to have creamy hot chocolate.  Enjoy!
