A Pressure Point Technique And Vinegar Can Be Effective In Fighting Sinus Infections

If you've ever had a sinus infection, you know how devastating it can be. It literally knocks you out with pain and is incredibly gross. I won't go into detail about that.

Usually, decongestants and antihistamines are prescribed to deal with the symptoms of a sinus infection. They help, but it would be nice to treat it via natural means. An interesting way to clear your sinuses using only your tongue and your thumb is gathering some popularity online and you should definitely give it a try. In combination with this technique, a beverage containing apple cider vinegar has been found to help clear infected sinuses.

Sinus infections are incredibly annoying and can cause a good amount of distress.

Every single year, 37 million people go through agonizing sinus infections.

A sinus infection involves a significant amount of inflammation and swelling in the nasal cavities, and is otherwise known as sinusitis.

This painful inflammation is usually caused by a virus, but can be caused by bacterial and fungal sources in rare cases. If you've ever had one, you'll also know how much unsettling discharge can develop. Not fun.

But don't worry if you have one! There are a few ways to alleviate the pain and discharge associated with a sinus infection.

A method that derives from the practice of acupuncture may open up the sinuses and allow discharge to drain. First, you will want to place your tongue to the roof of your mouth and apply pressure.

Next, place your thumb between your eyebrows and apply a moderate amount of pressure for 20 seconds.

Discharge may start to drain, so be ready. The combined pressure applied to the roof of the mouth and forehead is thought to move the Vomer bone, allowing for draining to occur more efficiently from the sinuses.

There's also a tasty natural drink that can be made easily that helps clear the sinuses...

The crucial ingredient in this sinus-clearing beverage is apple cider vinegar.

You'll need 1/4 cup of this yummy stuff.

Juice an entire lemon and get one teaspoon of ground cayenne pepper ready.

You'll add this pepper to the final mixture.

Add a tablespoon or two of honey to a 1/2 cup of water.

This will give the drink a nice sweet taste. We have to spice up life a little, right?

After boiling some water, pour in the apple cider vinegar.

You'll want to add the other ingredients in a cup with the water/vinegar. Let it sit a bit, stir, and enjoy! This mixture may just relieve that sinus infection.
