Symptoms, conditions and causes

What are the reasons for sinus congestion?

Sinus congestion can create a lot of discomfort and breathing difficulties. There are simple remedies for the known causes of this condition.

Symptoms:

  • Stuffy nose

  • Runny nose (mucus)

  • Headache

  • Allergy-like symptoms

  • Breathing difficulties

Cause #1: Fungus

The most common fungus that causes sinus congestion is called Aspergillus Fumigatis. If you don’t have enough friendly bacteria in the body, for example after a history of taking antibiotics, the result can be an overgrowth of this fungus. One thing to know is that fungus uses refined carbs, sugar and iron as food.

Remedies:

  • Consume oregano oil

  • Consume garlic

  • You can also do a nasal rinse (Watch this video.)

  • Avoid iron in your food

  • Avoid dairy and refined carbs

  • Do an intermittent fasting plan

  • Do periodic prolonged fasting (once or twice a month)

  • As a general remedy for sinus congestion:

    • take serrapeptase (200,000 IU)

    • do an acupressure technique (Watch this video.)

    • mix 1 teaspoon of apple cider vinegar into about a cup of water and drink it

Cause #2: Rhinovirus

Rhinovirus is a type of viral infection that can affect your sinuses and can keep them inflamed and congested. Most of the time it is seasonal; however, it can be chronic.

Remedies:

  • Take zinc (150 mg)

  • Take vitamin D (20000 IU)

  • As a general remedy for sinus congestion:

    • take serrapeptase (200,000 IU)

    • do an acupressure technique (Watch this video.)

    • mix 1 teaspoon of apple cider vinegar into about a cup of water and drink it

Cause #3: Allergies

An allergy means intolerance to certain types of foods or elements from outside your body, like pollen. Your body overreacts to the thing causing the allergy, creating a lot of symptoms like inflammation, irritation, sinus congestion etc. The best way to see if you have an allergy: look back and see what you ate or were exposed to just before the sinus congestion. Chances are there was an unusual type of food or environmental substance that you were exposed to.

Remedies:

Take more vitamin A

  • eat more meats

  • virgin cod liver oil

  • grass-fed butter

  • kale

Improve your digestion of vitamin A by taking purified bile salts

Look back and see what you ate or were exposed to prior to getting the congestion, and avoid it next time

As a general remedy for sinus congestion:

  • take serrapeptase (200,000 IU)

  • do an acupressure technique (Watch this video.)

  • mix 1 teaspoon of apple cider vinegar into about a cup of water and drink it
